White DROID RAZR Poses for its First Photo Shoot

white razr2

The white DROID RAZR is the other phone hitting store shelves tomorrow and we have the first set of pictures of it for your viewing pleasure. We have all seen the official press renders a number of times now, but these multi-angle shots give you a great view of the added white edges in a real life setting. I’ll have to admit that this phone is incredibly sexy. While the Galaxy Nexus is the phone of choice for the majority of you, it’s impossible to deny the beauty of the RAZR design. Say what you will about Motorola and their stance on carriers and bootloaders, but they still build some of the best phones on the planet.  

  

Cheers adreday!

    I just ordered my razr over the phone last night from Verizon. The rep gave me the choice of black or white. (I took the black one). Since I wont get the phone until friday, I stopped by the local store today to get a hands on. They had both black and white display models out.

    • rob

      ….also, after working with the phone for a while….what an awesome phone!! Cant wait until Friday…and so glad not to be jumping back and forth between this and gnex any more.

        Sorry, it’s a Sammy, and unless they have drastically done something to their hardware, it will never be close to a Moto product. 

        • Anonymous

          With respect, subjective opinions are not the best foundation for argument. I personally hate every Moto device I have/do own. I’m looking forward to a change. I have inspected “Sammy” products and found them more to my liking than I did the Moto of similar type. As for “close” to a moto, I rather think they far surpass it according to what I’ve experienced. Again, it’s a choice, and one that certainly would not begrudge you.

            if you like plastic hardware, and updates that break other features on the phone…good for you

            Right, because Moto always has great and timely updates on excellent master crafted hardware. Anyway, I’ve had everything but a Samsung so I’ll judge for myself.

            the last line is the only part that makes sense, and it makes alot of sense…i’ve had phones by every android manufacturer but LG, and samsung was probably the worst…just my experience though

          • http://twitter.com/kn1ghth4wk241 Mike Daniels

            the nexus isnt controlled by samsung though, its controlled by google and i work for radioshack and i have played with the galaxy nexus and i can say it is the coolest phone i have ever used, it may not be made of metal like motorola phones but it is built nicely and its internals are better than the razr(plus the camera is really sexy and fast)

          • Anonymous

            The build quality is Sammy though, saying the internals are nice would be like putting a lamborghini engine in a Chevrolet Cavalier and saying the cavalier is a nice car because of the engine

        you make up all of this information yourself, the nexus does not have ‘mad’ bugs. and if it did it did they would all be fixed by now, google updates the nexus phones constantly. keep saying that, seriously, no one will be crying.

          I have not said that they do not update their nexus fast, but i can say that they had to work on another version of ICS in order to get it right. Moto wins again.

Judging by your trolling comments your either 12 years old or an immigrant who hasn’t learned proper english yet. Also, don’t classify me as “you” about being a Nexus cry baby. You have never seen a comment from me saying any device is superior to the next, or writing a comment praising a device (Nexus) I have yet to use. But like I said you suck at life. Just by reading your views on this site shows how much your life does suck. All I can say is sorry man, and good luck because you need it.

    One thing for sure, the hardware quality will be better than Nexus. Of course Nexus will be pure Android in that it won’t have Verizon bloat. Oh wait…. never mind. But Nexus will have ICS can’t take that away from it and a 720p display (it’s pentile folks but at that rez won’t be noticeable). Enjoy the two best phones on the planet right now!

    I’ll pass on a Moto Droid any day of the week. Their phones are full of crap, glitches and slow. I’ll get a nexus phone close to the holidays, so ill wait a couple a weeks. 

    • Darthseph23

      Have you tried one?  Maybe I don’t notice the slowness since I don’t run the BLUR OS but mine’s much faster than anything else I’ve played with.  I’m sure the GNex and ReZound are equally quick due to the fact all three are running practically the same hardware (just different software.)

      I’ve not had a glitch or felt it slow but then, I have also not had battery issues since I use my phone more as a calling device and a news browser when I’m away from a computer.

      I can’t speak for other Moto devices but never had an issue with my OG Droid until the tech world had far superior hardware to work with.

It’s a damn shame.

          • EC8CH

            Yes the Nexus hype has gone on awhile and it spills into everything, but the readers who gets so pissed about it seem to be more often than not Bionic owners for some reason.  I don’t get why they seem to take such offense when the same hype went on forever with the Bionic.

            I’m not including you into that group mind you.

          • Michael Forte

            Maybe because every phone gets hyped up to be the best thing since sliced bread and then fails to live up to expectations. I think the long delay between the original announcement of the Bionic and actual release only made it worse when Motorola released a phone to replace it 2 months later. Definitely makes some feel burned. Would I like a RAZR? Sure. Does it make me love my Bionic any less? Nope. Honestly I’m glad the Nexus is finally releasing and hope everyone enjoys it. I would have gotten one, just not a Samsung fan. Different strokes for different folks.

    It looks really cheap to me with the white bordering.  In fact, I would even say that it kind of gives off the impression of an R2D2 Droid from last year.

    • Darthseph23

      At least the R2D2 pulled off its theme better.  This thing is just a tragedy.  Moto, learn to coat all your surfaces white (well, I’ll give an exception for the Kevlar.)

  • MJZ

    believe it or not thats even uglier than the original one. 

  • EC8CH

    Razr is a very good looking phone, and the white version is the first “white” phone that isn’t completely hideous.

    Now just ditch the VZW branding on the front, unlock the bootloader and maybe I’ll consider it.

    • Michael Forte

      I actually like the white and black look. All white phones look like toys, this actually looks nice, but I know hardly anyone agrees. Or maybe they just have Nexus blinders on.

      • EC8CH

        Yeah I tend to hate on Moto a lot, but I think the RAZR is pretty cool looking and feels well made.  I also think the white frame trimming the black panels looks much better than a solid slab of white. I’d never buy it myself but I think it’s unique and interesting.

        I hate how they crammed the verizon logo between the screen and buttons on the front though, the branding on the back is a mess as usual too.  You’d think that if Moto goes though that much trouble to design a great looking phone they would fight more to keep the branding from looking like hell.

        • Michael Forte

          Yeah I hate the excessive branding Verizon throws on their phones. Glad I was able to remove the Verizon logo from the front of my Bionic. Be glad Verizon only got their logo on the back of the Nexus.
