Motorola Razr i smartphone now available from £250

Mobile phone operator Motorola is selling the Razr i smartphone – which it calls the full screen smartphone - for a mere £250 on PAYG with a compulsory £10 top up. The smartphone comes with a Kevlar back, an "aircraft-grade" aluminium body and a Gorilla Glass front. It also has a splash-proof coating and is even dustproof.

Its features reads as follows: A single-core Intel Atom processor clocked at up to 2GHz with an I.T PowerVR SGX GPU, 1GB of RAM, 8GB onboard storage, a 4.3in display with a 960 x 540 resolution, up to 12 hours talk time, an 8-megapixel rear camera plus a front facing one, a microSD card slot, GPS, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and a thickness of only 8mm.

Rivals at this price include the LG Optimus 4X HD which is a quad-core smartphone as well as the Samsung Ativ S Windows Phone 8 handset. We have checked out the Motorola Razr M and the Razr i last year and you can read that review here.

It's worth noting that the other Intel-based smartphone on the market, the Orange San Diego, is apparently being discounted (and cleared out) for as little as £80 (including a £10 top up in store at EE).
