This is the Motorola DROID RAZR, the best designed Moto smartphone ever!

It was October 18, 2011 when Motorola resurrected the RAZR brand after three years without using it. Moto mixed Droid and RAZR and the result was the incredibly thin Droid RAZR, a phone that deserves its own post and so much more.

The phone featured a 1.2GHz Dual Core processor, 1GB of RAM, an 8MP camera with HD 1080p video recording, a 1,730mAH battery and a 4.3" qHD screen (not QHD, but qHD). It shipped with Android 2.3.6 and then got updated to 4.0.4 to see its last update to Jelly Bean 4.1 by late 2012.

But its specs were not even half of the story. The Droid RAZR deserves recognition for its awesome design. I would even say it's the best designed Motorola smartphone ever. The Moto Z comes close, but nothing beats this design. 

From its Kevlar back, to the camera bump that actually looked like the RAZR V3's iconic chin, to its 7.1mm profile making it the thinnest smartphone ever (at the time). And it featured a water resistant nano-coating, diamond-cut aluminum edges and a beautiful square industrial design that you don't see anymore in today smartphones. 

The Motorola Droid RAZR along with its MAXX edition were one of the best selling phones in the USA and Latin America in 2012. And in many ways it paved the way to the current Moto Z we got today. The use of different materials on the back of the phone (Style Shells), the ultra-thin profile and metal frames are all part of the RAZR and Droid RAZR's legacy. 

Another aspect that could have influenced the Moto Z is the innovative hardware feature. While the Droid RAZR allowed you to turn your phone into a laptop, the Moto Z took that idea to the next level, letting you turn it into a camera, a speaker or a projector. 

That's why this phone is worth not one article, but a thousand articles. Long live the DROID RAZR.
