Having never used the San Diego, I am not really in a position to comment. But the software build on the RAZR i is excellent and free from any carrier branding or bloatware. I think that is worth money in itself.

The resolution of a screen does not entirely determine its ultimate quality. The panels in last years RAZR and the RAZR i have the same resolution but are very very different screens.

The final point on this I would make is that part of the price is undoubtedly there to account for how small the RAZR i is. Its dimensions are actually slightly smaller, especially in thickness and yet you get a larger screen and the promise of much better battery life.

Do you know whether the lockscreen supports facial recognition or not??

I think you're probably on the wrong site then glossywhite...

My device to me isn't a phone, I rarely make calls on it, it really is my portable computer.

He has a point. I wonder just how many people have multiple portables that perform very similar tasks with a small variation in form factor because they think they need them. As a tech enthusiast, one can conveniently dodge that question. ;) Certainly, when it comes to x86 devices with a 4.3" display, the potential is there for a handheld that comfortably performs almost all the roles that one might expect a portable handheld to cover, without the 'need' for a tablet and with all the benefits of x86 and none of present shortcomings of ARM.

Hi Paul. I love your YouTube reviews, but you seem to have all but given up doing them, or are you too busy? :)

I hope you'll do more; in this day and age, static text and images only convey half the story.

Thank you :)

Great review and genuine thanks to unfitguy. Had my one x nicked and needed a cheap replacement. Got this for £215 brand new from cex. Nearly had to buy a lumia 800 eek...
