Don Willis at the Herald-Dispatch in Huntington, WV takes a look at the DROID RAZR by Motorola and shares why he thinks it stands out from the crowd.

Sometimes a phone just gets it right.

Motorola has re-introduced its Razr line of mobile phones. And while the new Razr bears very little in common with its predecessor, the built-in features blow the old Razr – and many other smartphones – out of the water.
