Motorola Razr i available from Orange for under £300

You can now grab the Motorola Razr i for less than £300 at Orange on PAYG, a price that includes delivery and an extra £10 top up on “Animal” plans. That is yet another £20 price drop compared to what Tesco Mobile was charging a few days ago.

Compared to other smartphones, the Razr i manages to cram a big display into a rather compact form factor. Indeed, the smartphone is just slightly bigger and heavier than the iPhone 4S, despite offering a much bigger screen size.

The device comes with a single-core Intel Atom system-on-chip clocked at up to 2GHz, making this phone the only model from a top handset manufacturer to offer an Intel-based solution.

It has 1GB of RAM and 8GB onboard storage with a microSD card slot. There’s also a 4.3in Super AMOLED advanced display covered with Gorilla Glass and a high-speed eight-megapixel camera with full HD video recording capabilities.

Other features include a battery life of up to 12 hours, a thickness of 8.3mm, Android 4.0 ICS, NFC, GPS, a front-facing camera and a Kevlar back. You can check out our review of the Motorola Razr i and its US counterpart, the Razr M.
