How Thin is the Droid RAZR, Really? (Not 7.1mm) :: GraphicAuthor: Johnny5k | Filed under: Apple, Cellular Networks, Communications, Gadgets, Google
The new Motorola Droid RAZR is generating lots of buzz, mainly for how how “impossibly thin” it is, at a skinny 7.1mm. It’s been reported all over, with that same number mentioned every time. What none of these reviews mention, however, is that the WHOLE phone isn’t actually that thin. There’s a pretty significant chunk at the top of the phone that’s considerably thicker. It doesn’t appear Motorola is releasing specs for how thick the thickest part of their phone is, which is generally how you measure something’s thickness. By Motorola’s reporting, the MacBook Air is only 3mm thin, since that’s how it measures at its thinnest point.
See for yourself. Personally, I’d rather have a couple extra mm width on the entire phone, than a thick spot at the top that sticks out an extra 3.4mm. But, maybe that’s just me.
