DROID RAZR Review Roundup: 4G Still Eats Batteries For Breakfast, Thin Doesn't Mean Not Fat, But It Is Verizon's Best DROID

Oh, the DROID RAZR - the very name RAZR brings back memories of the turn of the century (we can say that now, right?) - flip phones and cheap, unlimited data. Those were the good 'ol days.
