Motorazr2 V9 definitely comes with much better specs than the predecessor. Although there are not many things that differentiate these 2 phones one to another, Motorazr2 V9 is rolled out to the market as the final complement for the older brother for sure.
Between MotoRAZR2 V9 and MotoRAZR2 V8
To make a comparison, if on the Motorazr V8, you got no external memory support, then on this
Motorazr2 V9, the microSD support has been provided to you. And the other things that make Motorazr2 V9 much better than the predecessor is the addition of 3G HSDPA connection. And then, if you look closely at this phone, Motorazr2 V9 looks bigger and feels heavier than the older brother.
However, the rest of Motorazr2 V9 is still the same thing you can find on MotoRAZR2 V8, where there is no FM radio or 3.5mm headphone jack on these 2 phones.
Anyway, despite the fact that this phone has already supported microSD external memory, the internal memory of this phone is decreased by the vendor to only 45MB, while on Motorola RAZR V8, it has 2GB internal memory on board, but without the external memory support.
The design of this phone still looks pretty much the same with the predecessor. The front surface is layered by glass metallic stainless-steel material, which makes it look elegant and classy on the outside.
On the left side, you can find the volume buttons along with the smart key. The dedicated camera button is placed on the right side. The single speaker is placed at the bottom position of device. And the hinge that takes the role to help flip the front panel is still produced in metallic material.
The back cover of this phone is produced in the soft touch surface that we’ve already seen on Motorola RAZR V8. In order to open the battery cover, you only need to slide the battery cover to up direction, without any mechanical method.
Secondary External Display
The front flip panel of this phone is still dominated by the secondary external screen (2.0 inches), which supports 256K color display and 240x320 pixels, the same specs on the internal display.
However, the performance on the external screen is not as smooth as the internal screen. Delay always occurs when controlling media player through external display.
Interface and Functionality
The internal screen of this phone still uses the same exact specs of the predecessor, with the supports of TFT, 256K color display and 240x320 pixels. The size is also the same 2.2 inch screen.
This phone has also been injected with Linux/Java-based MOTOMAGX operating system, the same exact OS on Motorola RAZR V8 and some other cell phones from this vendor, such as: Motorola ROKR EM30 or Motorola ROKR E8. The whole performance of this phone is considered good, thanks to its 500MHz processor.
Snapping photos or recording videos can be helped a lot with the 2MP camera (1600x1200 pixels). Unfortunately, the camera of this phone is still not supported with LED flash, which can be really crucial when taking photos in low light area.
Motorazr2 V9 comes with some standard features, such as: Bluetooth, USB, Java MIDP 2.0, Organizer, Voice Memo, Video Download, Games and many more. Surprisingly, although this phone is the next generation of V8, the battery life of this phone is sacrificed by the vendor to only 260 hours in stand-by mode and 3 hours 30 minutes in talk time. While the predecessor, V8, comes with 330 hours battery life in stand-by mode and 7 hours 50 minutes in talk time.
Bottom line, as the next installment of the predecessor, Motorazr2 V9 definitely has much better specs and features than Motorazr V8. Moreover, this phone has been supported with microSD external memory and 3G HSDPA connection.
So in conclusion, if you’re looking for a decent flip cell phone that has a good sound quality, then Motorazr2 V9 is a good purchase and can be a suitable choice for many professional career people or office staff out there.
