Just in time for the holidays Verizon Wireless released the brand new DROID RAZR and caused quite a stir. Not only is the DROID RAZR amazingly thin, it also uses remote access with MotoCast, the free Motorola app that lets you stream or download your music, pictures and more from your PC to your phone. And if that's not enough it's also has a large screen with a vibrant color display that can rival some LCD HDTVs. How could I not agreed to a review when Verizon Wireless offered?

What I liked about the Droid Razr
In many ways the Droide Razr was impressive. In the above video I discuss and show some of the features of the camera, social network apps and the phone itself. Overall the phone performed really well and when doing everyday tasks like web surfing, gaming and being on social networks.
*edit* After watching the video I noticed that you can't see the social network apps screen so I took a regular photo to show you.
BUT, I did notice that while doing all those amazing things, the Droid Razr used up the battery quickly. To make the battery last longer, I highly suggest you use the Smart Actions app to help since it allows you to create rules and settings like letting the phone vibrate during work hours or dimming the display at a specific battery level.
Love the smartphone but worried you won't know how to use all the cool features on the Droid Razr? Then sign up for Verizon’s Free Wireless Workshops and start getting the most out of your smartphone. Don’t forget to donate your no-longer-used wireless phones to HopeLine from Verizon and help victims of domestic violence.
The DROID RAZR is available for $299.99 with a new two-year customer agreement at all Verizon Wireless Communications Stores, at authorized retailers, and online at: www.verizonwireless.com
