Review of the Motorola Droid Razr one month in

I have been using the Droid Razr for just about a month now. My initial reaction when opening the box and seeing the phone was all ooh’s and ahhhs and one month later I am still ohhh’ing and ahhh’ing. I love new technology and learning how it works.
Here are my initials thoughts.

Great graphics: The graphics are amazing! Especially when viewing apps or streaming a movie or TV show. The colors are nice and crisp and clear.  And having the 4.3 inch screen is a definite positive in my opinion. It doesn’t feel like you are attempting to watch a movie on a tiny screen and reading wont hurt your eyes because the screen is so small. 

One of the biggest things that I have had a hard time getting used to it how lightweight the phone is. It’s a catch twenty-two. I love it because I am not carrying around a big ole clunky phone but at the same time it’s so lightweight I feel like I am going to drop it at any second. And with me being slightly accident prone it makes me just a tad nervous. Also the top feels a little heavier then the rest of the phone. If you hold the phone flat you will notice that it sticks out a little further. It’s not a big issue you just need to make sure you keep a good grip on the phone, especially if you tend to drop your phone a lot.

One of my favorites features of the Droid Razr is the notifications. No more worrying about missing a call, an email, a tweet, text, maybe someone mentioned you on Facebook. You will get a notification about it on the very top left of your phone. To access your notifications just touch the top of the screen and drag your finger down. You can also set it up to make a tone. But even if you don’t hear your phone the next time you pick it up it will be right there on the top. It doesn’t go away until you clear it. When I first got the phone the default tone was the Droid voice and I couldn’t figure out why it kept saying Droid. It was comical watching my son every time I would get a notification and he heard the phone “talk”. His eyes got big and he would always tells me “Mom your phone is freaking me out”. Once I figured out oh hey that’s my notifications I changed it but I am slightly tempted to change it back to the Droid voice just for the giggle factor.

I can’t wait to learn and share more about this phone. Right now I am on the hunt for some amazing apps. If you have a Droid what is your must have app?
