The Moto Razr V3 is expertly crafted to deliver exceptional performance. Inside the ultra-thin design are advanced features like MPEG4 video playback, Bluetooth® wireless technology, a digital camera and more. And with the precision-cut keypad, minimalist styling and metal finish, the V3 looks just as beautiful as it performs. The real difference is in the details. See who’s calling, in color, without opening your phone — the large internal display is complemented by an impressive external display. The precision-cut metal keypad reacts to the lightest of touches. And the features you can't always see are equally impressive, like quad-band GSM — for global calls where GSM network coverage and roaming agreements are present.
When the Motorola RAZR V3 was launched last year, I think most everybody, including Motorola itself, was quite surprised by how popular the handset turned out to be, considering the asking price. Its slim profile and sleek silver colored metal body proved to be just too much of a temptation for the world, and people the world over jumped through hoops and over hurdles just to get one for their very own. Everybody was a movie star with one of these!
Black is beautiful.
Until, of course, Motorola gave 50 exclusive RAZR V3 BLK handsets to some real movie stars at the 77th Annual Academy Awards in February, 2005. All of a sudden, the silver RAZR lost some of its shine. But once again, it is time for the masses to rejoice. Motorola is making the RAZR BLK available to all.
Of course it isn't just the color that makes the RAZR V3 BLK such a desirable handset. One reason that people love it so is its size. It weighs only 3.35oz (95g), which is pretty light for a phone that has a largely metal body. At 3.86" x 2.17" x .57" (98mm x 55mm x 14.5mm) in size, it is actually thinner than most candy bar style phones on the market. It can be slipped perfectly into a shirt, suit, or pants pocket, as well as a purse, without being noticed.
There is so much more to the RAZR V3 BLK than its physical being, though. Certainly the primary purpose of any phone must be making phone calls, and in spite of its small stature, the RAZR V3 BLK managed a full 7 hours of talk time in our tests - a very respectable showing. A related bonus is the fact that you can charge the RAZR V3 BLK directly from your computer's USB port with the same type of mini-USB cable that you probably already have for your digital camera. That's one less power adapter to pack in the suitcase. Support for all 4 GSM frequency bands means that the RAZR will work in San Francisco and New York just as well as it will in Paris and London. The handset's internal antenna also proved to be quite capable, offering up very good reception in weak signal areas.
Of course some compromises had to be made to get all of this functionality into such a small package. The keypad, for example, is a very thin metal unit that offers less tactile feedback than most, though it makes up for that somewhat by looking fantastic in the dark, thanks to its cool blue back light. While quite usable, it might take a bit of getting used to. No compromises were made with the main display, though: a nice 2.2" 65k color TFT unit, with 176 x 220 pixel resolution. The external display is also color, though only a 4k CSTN type.
The Motorola RAZR V3 BLK is thin and definitely in.
The built-in VGA camera proved itself to be one of the better ones on the market, offering good contrast, color, and focus in most situations. The RAZR's polyphonic sound system also works quite well, and even allows you to use MP3 files as ringtones. So if you have a few dollars to spare in your quest for looking like a movie star, Motorola has got just the thing you need. Luckily, the RAZR V3 BLK has the brains to back up the beauty.

Top Customer Reviews
The obvious discrepancies led to a more rigorous inspection. Soiled lint in the wrist strap eyelet confirmed my suspension that this unit was used, at best; it is factory refurbished. The phone had a plastic skin as though it was new, but the main screen has the hint of a blemish that hadn’t been thoroughly polished out.
Using a RAZR that was purchased off eBay as a ‘Parts Phone’, I replaced the front and battery covers. Now it looks like what is portrayed in the Amazon advertisement. The inside of the phone showed more evidence of an ‘Other Than New’ phone. Front cover screws were slightly corroded and chip shields have marks that are indicative of a TP (testpoint) procedure.
On the bright side, the phone works flawlessly, but I sincerely feel I didn’t get what I paid for, and paid too much.
First of all, I did not expect it to be pristine - it is dated, but simple. Phone calls, texts, display. The original 'modern' phone. My phone had some issues right off the bat. 1) The batter panel was clearly not of the same phone and was painted in a cheap spray paint. It rubbed right off to show silver. 'No Problem!' I thought. 'This could be a cool combo.' 2) The phone, though 'cracked' was still 'locked.' The security code was set and I could not master reset all settings/etc. At first, this didn't seem like a big deal. Until 3) my phone was activated with its new SM Card. The screen would flip and mirror itself - like whatever connection did this was in a static flux, holding two mirrored and copied images at once and then eventually holding a non legible display.
This transition to alternate phone was supposed to be simple. But I am returning this product and searching for a more reliable alternative.
