2.0 out of 5 stars Great phone when works, but doesn't last long & goes mental, 25 Jun. 2007
I wanted to write a good honest review here on this phone, after owning the phone quite a while, this may be helpful to some potential buyers.

I've had the phone a while (I'd say around 9 - 10 months maybe) & it's now finally died, I'm quite upset at the moment (though ain't going to write the phone out of that, just calmness) but it's been going quite crazy, until this happened, the phone was quite a decent phone (I'll explain more later on this current status).

The battery life on the phone is actually quite good, charge the phone up every night while your asleep & it lasts well during the day, you can have calls for 45 mins & it'll still be ok (I dont know about much longer cause I hardly remember sitting on the phone over an hour or so on it lol), the design is quite good, nice slim neat phone, the photo's aren't too bad but the memery is extremely small, you cant upgrade the memory and you'll be lucky to get more than 2 MP3's on this (Unless they are tiny MP3's or real low yet crap sounding bitrate), the video doesn't film too long either, but as a phone itself for taking calls etc.. it's not bad.

Now, the phone's life ... today the phone died on me big time, it keeps continuin to freeze, doing all sorts of wierd things (For example, i got a text, pressed reply the text closed off, it went into my call book, started dialling a number etc... & I hadn't pressed anything yet), things are just jumnping everywhere & it's going crazy.

I've just ordered a new phone today (Sony Ericsson W810i - which I've heard from a lot of people they are good phones and all the reviews I've browsed on various sites are all good honest reviews/praises on the phone .. for the price too & the things it does, it's extremely worth it), however in regards to the Razr, if you really like the phone.. get it, as when it works, it's not too bad, but don't expect longevity on the phone & the memory is extremely small.

Maybe, I'm just an unlucky one that this has happened to but I do take good care of my phones & this one has just clearly gone on it's own after a while.

Also, even with the software you can;t back up your text messages either & the bad thing about that is, they store on the phone (Not the sim, theirs NO option to store to sim either), so if your phone goes, you lose everything. (You can however back up your phone book with the software but text messages definitely not which is a bit stupid to be honest).

I hope this has helped a few people here in regards to deciding wether to purchase the phone or not.
