Marketing InformationDESIGN: A BIG SCREEN THAT FITS IN YOUR HAND

The big 4.3" display spans edge-to-edge, yet RAZR i still fits perfectly in the palm of your hand, making this one impossibly compact smartphone. Texting, emailing, reading, watching - it's all much easier to do when you have 40 percent more screen space than the leading competitor. And on a vibrant, high-resolution Super AMOLED Advanced display, everything looks amazing.

INTEL INSIDE®: MOVE AT THE SPEED OF LIFE

RAZR i is powered by an advanced Intel® processor, to keep you doing what you're doing, without having to stop and wait for everything to load. Jump from a game to a text and over to a playlist, then off to browse the web - all without stopping. And all that power also means the instant-launch camera can start up in less than a second.
