Compare RAZR2 V9 Deals

The Motorola RAZR2 V9 is almost exactly the same as the V8, except that it is a 3G version, with a high-speed HSDPA implementation of 3G for fast downloads. Built from premium materials - stainless steel and chemically hardened glass , it has a two-tone soft-touch housing and looks and feels a quality product.

The external screen is the largest of its kind and touch-sensitive – you can control the music player and read/reply to text messages, otherwise it shows information such as the date and time or incoming calls. You can use the music player whilst accessing the other phone functions. A quad-band phone, is offers SMS, EMS, MMS and email messaging, while Web access is run via GPRS/EDGE and an Opera Web browser.

It offers a 2 megapixel camera but no flash -  so below average for this class of phone. It supports low-resolution video recording plus 3G video calling. The music player, though, is excellent, supporting all popular formats and enables easy synchronisation with a PC.  Internal memory is limited to 45 Mbytes, but the V9 takes microSD memory cards up to 2 GB - enough for about 500 tracks. There's full support for a wireless Bluetooth heaset and also microUSB 2.0 connectivity.

CrystalTalk technology improves call quality by automatically adjusting the audio to take into account of background noise. Battery life is limited given the drain of two big screens and a wealth of applications, but charging every other day should be sufficient.
