Thin is definitely in. At just over a half-inch thick, the Motorola RAZR V3 is the perfect combination of sleek design and powerful features. With long-range Bluetooth, support for video playback, a VGA (640 x 480) camera, a full-color screen, and quad-band capability, the RAZR V3 is everything you're looking for in a stylish mobile companion.
The RAZR V3's design takes the standard clamshell form factor to the next level with an impressive, anodized aluminum construction. The first thing you'll notice when you flip open the handset is its impressive, 176 x 220 color display with 262,000 colors. Meanwhile, the outside cover of the handset sports a supplementary 96 x 80 full-color screen that can display pictures, time, call information, battery and signal strength, and more. The VGA camera lens is housed above the supplementary display. Up/down buttons are placed on the left side for volume control while a voice button on the right side of the unit allows you to enter voice memos and create voice dialing profiles. Most of the phone's features and on-screen menus are controlled by a five-way center button on the handset's backlit control pad, which is precision cut from a single sheet of nickel-plated copper alloy. A charging port and USB data cable port is placed on the bottom of the phone.

Operating the RAZR Battery Door

Customer Review: Review of Motorola Razr V3 (unlocked) Purchase
The product was received in good condition. It was a new phone...not refurbished and sold new. When the SIM card was inserted the phone picked up the authorized network and was ready for use. Great purcase and would recommend to others who are in the market for a similar product.
