Everyone went crazy for the RAZR v3 when it first came out. I was one of the few that didn’t like the RAZR because the phone didn’t improve in features. The RAZR v3 was one of a kind, it was slim and very attractive; however, it had the same 5 MB memory like the previous phones such as the v550 and the v400, which I owned a while back, and it also lacked the memory expansion feature. In my opinion the RAZR v3 is a total waste of money, becuase most of the features are the same as the previous phones by Motorola and the only thing that is different is the new look and the MPEG4 playback. Also, the RAZR v3’s camera is not all that great; the pictures by the camera are poor in quality.
As months passed Motorla started to release different types of RAZRs with very little differences between each releases, most of them are just different colors with various extentions after the v3 name. You can see what I mean here http://www.bcellphones.com/news/red-motorola-razr/.
One day as I was surfing eBay for a new phone I came across this unusual RAZR and it was called the Motorla RAZR v3x. I found out that the RAZR v3x was not sold in the US, which was not a surprise to me, because alot of incredible phones are sold everywhere in the world except in USA. This RAZR v3x had what I wanted in a flip phone. It had the look, the features, and it was perfect for me.
These are the features that caught my attention:
- Support of AAC+, MPEG4, WMV, WMA, MP3 and Real Video/Audio files
- Up to 512 MB of removable optional TransFlashâ„¢ memory
- Bluetooth wireless technology* supports wireless stereo sound through Motorolaâ€™s Bluetooth Stereo Headset and other compatible Bluetooth enabled accessories for hands-free communication
- 2 megapixel camera with 8x zoom, macro mode setting and , LED
- Sleek streamlined housing with large, vivid color external and internal displays

I saw the RAZR v3x on eBay and it didn’t take me long to decide weather I should buy it or not; I knew it was a good investment; I can upload videos on my phone on a 512 memory stick and watch it when ever I’m on the go, I can put mp3s on it and use it as a mp3 player like an iPod. And the best part of it is if I took pictures on the phone’s 2.0 megapixel camera I can go to the nearest Wal-Mart, Walgreens, CVS Pharmacy, or Kinkos and print my pictures with the TransFlashâ„¢ adapter.
So if you’re thinking of buying a RAZR then buy a new RAZR v3x from eBay. The price for it should be around $270 and I can garuantee you that the RAZR v3x is alot better than the average RAZR and you get more for your money.
