Motorola Razr HD: Is It Worth Buying?

The smartphone industry is growing at its best and so the smartphone manufacturers are. But, from all the shining names, there is one name that used to shine with high intensity, but does not shine any more? Motorola is the name what I am talking about. The company tasted success with its smartphones, but that success did not last longer, and the result is that, Motorola is struggling in the smartphone marketplace. It’s been acquired by Google, and is reportedly working on Motorola Nexus ‘X’ Phone.

Anyways, if we talk about the Motorola smartphones launched till date, ‘Motorola Razr HD’ is what shines the most. it was launched in the US last year, where it was named ‘Droid Razr HD’, but it will be known as just ‘Razr HD’ elsewhere. Mototrola showcased it as their flagship smartphone at MWC 2013, but it could hardly stood against the giants like Samsung, LG, Sony and HTC‘s flagship devices.

Pros: 4G LTE, Promising Battery Life, Nice Screen

Cons: Out-specced by competitors
