Two months after the launch of the DROID BIONIC, Motorola is at it again with the Motorola DROID RAZR, a thin (7.1mm!) 4G LTE Android smartphone on Verizon.  Featuring a 1.2 GHz dual-core TI OMAP processor, it offers a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED Advanced display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, a front-facing camera, 1,780 mAh non-removable battery, and Android 2.3.5 with Motorola's custom UI.  It's built to withstand minor accidents as well, with a KEVLAR coating on the back and Gorilla Glass covering the display.  It'll be available on November 11th for $299.99 with a two-year agreement.

It's a high-end phone and sports a gorgeous design, but it's launching just before the HTC Rezound and Samsung Galaxy Nexus.  Is it worth considering?  Part 1 of 2.

Zach Cline Pfft blackberry
Hubert John Abiera
Hubert John Abiera The huge-ass screens turn me off a bit... I kinda like the 3.7 to 4.0 range, so no, this isn't the best looking Android device for me.
Juan Vargas

Cory Wilson
Cory Wilson Aaron slimming down
David Cohen
David Cohen No not with that qHD screen Aaron...... 720p then we can talk then it might have been the best,let me rather say on par to match iPhone... That would match,meaning no Battery to take out even though battery life not equal to (Apple) ,also screen Resolution,even though PPI ,might not match..... But be so close it doesn't matter let me say that..... Oh LTE also 4g sweetness... Been Android Since day 1.... so don't flame ,only my opinion...
Cory Wilson
Cory Wilson I can't wait until blackberry get android apps
Cesario Brito Jr.
Cesario Brito Jr. I'm not going to lie. This phone looks pretty.
Brandon Thompson
Brandon Thompson Yes, getting tomorrow
Alberto Garcia Flores
Alberto Garcia Flores Nope, I think its cool looking. Personally I think the Galaxy S II is better looking still, it looks elegant and classy. But The Samsung Nexus is going t be the best looking device when it comes out.
Nichole Maldonado
Nichole Maldonado NO!! They're just gunna release something else that's probably a Quad-core with HTC thats gunna be BEAST!

Tanner Schmitz
Tanner Schmitz The iPhone has a non removeale batt and when mine would frezze up there was always away to force shut it off. Lets hope moto did the same cuz as we all know android will always freeze.
Shannon Smith
Shannon Smith No it's not the best looking.
Lance Burley
Lance Burley Hell no, I hate the corners of this thing, and the battery cover is extra........far from the best...the nexus s looks better this :/
Zach Cline
Zach Cline Best looking no, As far as build quality goes I would have to say it has the best build quality of most android devices that i've seen so far. The whole non- Removable battery is to make it harder for people to root. A lot of the time when you SBF. You have to do a battery pull and get to stock recovery. With a non removable battery you're pretty much screwed.
Craig Lawrence
Craig Lawrence haha its hideous
Kit Kwan
Kit Kwan For the. Looking , I like SE Arc the best.
Mike Chiou
Mike Chiou Not bad, just wish the bezel could be a bit thinner. It's probably twice as thick as the Galaxy Nexus'.
Michael Mulé
Michael Mulé What**
