Motorola RAZR V3c Review

Prominently displayed on the front, a 65K-color 96 x 90 LCD displays basic information such as time, network status, and battery strength, and even functions as the camera viewfinder when the flip is closed (useful for self-portraits and being included in group shots).

Located above, a lens to the 1.3-megapixel camera is able to take photos up to 1280 x 1024 px in resolution, a considerable improvement over the original RAZR's 0.3-megapixel camera last year.

Offering convenient access to voice functions, the Voice Key on the right side activates MotoSpeak advanced speech recognition (also allowing consumers to record voice memos). On the left, standard Volume Keys adjust call alert volume, and switch to and from Vibrate and Silent Modes. Located nearby, the Speakerphone Key doubles as a Smart Key to anticipate likely subsequent actions (such as selection after highlighting a menu item), and a mini-USB port allows users to connect the RAZR V3c to a PC (also functioning as the Stereo Headset, Charger, and Accessory Connector Ports).

Revealing the internal 65K-color 176 x 220 px LCD, Menu and Left and Right Keys situated below offer convenient navigation through the menu structure, while the standard 5-way directional keypad is surrounded by Send, Camera, Clear, and Power / End Keys.
