The Motorola Ce0168, otherwise known as the Motorola RAZR, had received generally positive reviews. Outlets like CNET.com and HotHardware.com gave the device an average rating of 4.25 stars out of 5 stars. Negative comments about the device include an awkward, larger size; low picture quality from the camera; and a battery that is not removable. Positive points include the slim and lightweight design, 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced display and battery life of up to 12.5 talk time hours.
The Motorola Ce0168 was Motorola’s return to the RAZR brand after the RAZR 2’s unsuccessful release in 2007. The phone utilizes the Android operating system, meaning it has out-of-the-box access to features like the Google Play Store, Google Books, Google Maps, Places, Google Talk and Google Search with Voice. Motorola aimed to compete with the BlackBerry’s more corporate focus by making the Ce0168 compatible with programs including Microsoft Exchange and ActiveSync.
The new RAZR originally released with the already outdated Android 2.3.5 (Gingerbread) but was upgradeable to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). The device came standard with 16 GB of internal memory and 16 GB of pre-installed microSD card memory and has the ability to handle an upgrade to a 32 GB microSD card.
