    i thought they said in the interview that the resolution was 1280×720? would that make it 1280?

  • Why in all these specs, has the battery been left out? 

  • Greg

    Not really that impressed anymore. I’ve been an Android user for going on four years now, and I went and bought a 64GB iphone4s on the 14th. It’s cool for what I use it for. But I’m always dedicated to Android. Stone me, I know..

  • !! Can nobody tell me if it has an SD card slot?! 🙁 

    • I believe you mean ‘can anybody tell me…’ This is probably why its taken a whole day for a reply lol. 

      No SD Card slot.

    What is NF support? Is that a typo for NFC?

    Person 1: “Hey, how did you unlock my phone?”
    Person 2: “I held it up to my ass.”

    RAZR = Non-Removable Battery -10
    Nexus =? (info please?)

    RAZR = No NFC /shrug

    RAZR = Gingerbread, but should get ICS quickly…

    RAZR = Non-HD screen, not 720. Read tonight ICS is 720 Native. Does this matter?

    This PenTile looks better than Bionic or D3, and maybe this tradeoff will finally pay off in better battery life, and while not looking like @$$.

    RAZR = OMAP 4430 vice 4460. How much difference will that make?
    (Wish it was Tegra 3 / Exynos SEXY TIME)

    RAZR = Micro SD Slot +10 (64GB may not work yet, if ICS can fix that, the lack of a slot could REALLY make a long term difference. More in the phone could help some save on Data costs. IMHO)

  • I see nothing about a GPU here. Is this why it got low scores at GLBenchmark? If this is Google’s flagship phone, why wouldn’t they have a dedicated GPU?

  • oh i can see bullies smashing it into your face over and over crying out “Stop unlocking your phone! Stop Unlocking your phone!, Stop Unlocking your phone!

    wtf no hdmi out?

  • Benjamin Mackie

    Also biggest problems with the facial recognition. For those of us who wear contacts and glasses, having to remove your glasses to unlock your phone would be a pain. And Im sure for girls hair and makeup could be an issue

  • Benjamin Mackie

    The only thing is the camera is really underwhelming

  • Anonymous

    It better have DLNA.. Exporting that crisp 1080p video via a wire is not the business..  

  • Reedme

    Micro SD Card? Or did they make the same mistake they made on the Galaxy tab10.1?

  • 3 bills for a 5mp ‘Flagship’ phone.

    • megapixels never matter unless your printing out poster sized images. 5mp on a smartphone is more than enough. just sayin/

  • Chad Ramey

    just think about how many people are going to break there phones using the face unlocking feature

  • Justin Kos

    what kind of 1.2 ghz dual core processor? not all processors are created equal lol

    The back design looks horrid as usual from samsung…Htc and google need to team up for the next nexus, because htc knows how to design a sexy phone.  Nonetheless I’ll probably still buy this.

  • jeffrey pham

    i’m trying to weigh whether or not this lacking hdmi is a dealbreaker.  i have a tablet that has hdmi..
    and man, does ICS look AWESOME!!!!
    to me, the droid razr easily looks like the better looking phone

  • AndroidWarhol

    I guess it probably doesn’t have an SD card.   I’ll have to get the 32 gig version and live with that plus cloud storage for all my music and vids.   But I am very worried about it not having Gorilla Glass.   I punished my OG Droid and it never minded one bit.   Is the previous Nexus scratch prone?

    8.94mm thick was for HSPA+ devices.  Still waiting to see how much thicker the LTE version will be.

  • kiiinda thought the RAZR event was a little more polished and cool…also think the phone looks more unique…this looks like a giant continuum without the ticker

  • Its going to be hard to choose between the Nexus and Droid Razr.  I like the look and build of the Razr, but man on man is that ICS nice, and I know with the Nexus I won’t have to worry about Moto fudging with it.

  • No upgrade for me until March. Sounds like this will still be worth it then, if everything else will be locked up tight, or in HTC s case, made of spun glass.

  • Holy shit, this device (and ICS) are AWESOME!

  • AndroidWarhol

    Moto Razr, your fifteen minutes of fame just ended.
