The Motorola Droid Razr officially goes on sale at Verizon Wireless today. However, like Verizon’s other high-speed, 4G LTE devices, the Droid Razr comes with a hefty $300 price tag (with a two-year contract). Penny pinchers, fear not. If you’re new to Verizon, today you can get the Droid Razr for $111.11 from AmazonWireless. Unfortunately, the sale doesn’t extend to current customers, but even for those of you renewing, Amazon has the Razr priced at a discounted $250. 

The Droid Razr is one of the biggest phone releases of the year. It’s claim to fame is its thin 7.1mm profile, which makes it the thinnest smartphone ever, and its supposed 12.5-hour talk time, meaning it might have better battery life than any other smartphone on the market as well. We can’t verify that yet, but we do like Motorola’s battery-saving software, like Smart Actions, a program that lets you tell the phone to turn on or off any feature based on things like if you arrive home, or time of day, etc. This means that you could set the Droid Razr to turn on Wi-Fi and turn off 4G data whenever you get home. There are a lot of fun possibilities. 

The specs are fairly impressive. The Razr runs on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), but will supposedly receive the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) update within the next few months. It has 16GB of internal storage, a 16GB microSD card, is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, has 1GB of RAM, and the Super AMOLED Gorilla Glass screen is 4.3 inches and has a resolution of 540×960 pixels, which is pretty high. The 8MP rear camera doesn’t appear as impressive. For more information check out this hardware overview video and this video about MotoCast and Smart Actions.

Is this cheap Android phone better than the Galaxy S24? I found out
The back of the Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus.

Before I put my SIM card in the Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus, I had seen several reports and YouTube videos claiming it would be a great purchase if you didn’t want to buy an expensive smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy S24 or even the Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max. Wow, I thought: It must be really special. While it's not especially cheap, the latest Redmi phone does look like a good value, at least on paper.

Well, it is quite good, but there’s absolutely no reason to buy it if you can stretch to a more expensive phone. Although it hasn’t been any trouble, I’m itching to switch to a different phone, and it’s one that costs exactly the same amount of money to buy. The reason why isn't to do with the specs as such but to do with life with the phone.
It's not all about the numbers
