Overall the Razr V3 is a stunning mobile phone. Slim and metallic, the whole handset presentation screams of futuristic minimalism while harking back to the childhood sci-fi of audience it's aimed at.

Mobile Tech Review Aug 4, 2006

The Motorola RAZR V3 redefined style for mobile phones and proved a thoroughbred straight out of the gate. After almost two years on the market, it still turns heads, sells better than other phone, and commands a large and loyal following.

The Motorola RAZR V3c is a cool handset, especially in the pink garb that has recently been made available. The device has a good set of capabilities that include Bluetooth, EV-DO, great speaker independent voice dialing, and a megapixel camera.

I shed my iPhone for a month to experience the world where apps don't exist and T9 reigns king. Maybe I did it for the nostalgia. Maybe I did it because I hate myself just a little bit. Either way, one thing is certain: Using 2004's hottest phone in 2014 is hell.

This thing was slow even for its time. I had non-stop dropped calls, (well, that could be Cingular's issue too) and the damn thing crashed weekly. Gravity was also the greatest enemy of this inferno device. I dropped it once at a distance of less than three feet. The damn thing blew apart as...

I have the Motorola V3 no letters after it, so I guess a first generation or whatever. It's a good phone for the most part, holds up well to being dropped etc. It definitely shows its wear and tear though now. Only reason i am still using it is I am currently working in China, and...

I'm not even really sure what to say about this phone due to how bad it was. I had the most basic monochrome LG phone before this and even that was better than this upgrade. This phone was slow and buggy. It continued to accumulated dust under the screen as a basic defect of the build...

The RAZR V3m does just what I want it to do and no more, which is a shame. This was an excellent Motorola design that combined a durable, reliable phone with good reception. The Motorola software was regarded did a serviceable job of adding very basic photo and video features to the core calling...

This phone served me well for two years and could have gone for 2 more. The metal-ish casing made it strong and somehow invincible. Not the fastest or most feature-full phone in the world, but it did what a phone should without messing up. I may have been the exception with this, considering all...

I had this phone on the Verizon network. This was one of the best plain old phones I have had. I have always favored motorola phones for 2 reasons, the ones I have owned have taken abuse and kept on going and solid signal reception. I have dropped, kicked, and thrown various motorola phones...

I had this phone before I got the Droid. I found it to be a decent phone, it was certainly better than the one I had before, which I cant remember its name right now. It was decent at texting, obviously not as easy to use as the Droid, since it didnt have t he virtual kb that the droid does....

I've had this phone for at least three years by now and it has been reliable and stable as a phone. Call quality is very good (via Verizon) and the reception has always been good where expected. The predictive text messaging algorithm is passable but I was never able to type quickly on it....

This was probably my third phone. Thought it would be amazing!!! I mean you remember the Cingular, now AT&T, commercials when they first came out? Well that only grabbed my attention. Got the phone, and worked well for about 3 months. At that time my outside screen started to go on the fritz. Now...

Still an awesome phone... Till you have to flip it open and use it. Symbian was junk '04, its worse now. Thank Apple for fixing phones.

It's one of the best phones ive used from a form factor perspective, in combination with the Droid, it was the most convenient and handy phones I've handled in the last decade
