Motorola Razr i deal: £15 per month only

You can grab the Motorola Razr i which was launched late last year for as little as £15 per month on a two year contract on Tesco Mobile (which uses O2 as MVNO). That’s a total cost of ownership of £360 per month, which is spectacularly cheap for a handset whose retail price is around £300.

You get 100 minutes, 5000 texts and 500MB with triple Clubcard points on your monthly bill (that’s 1,080 points or the equivalent of £42.40 in rewards over the duration of the contract). Sadly you don’t get access to BT Openzone and O2 Wi-Fi hotspots. You can check the hands-on review we had with this handset and check how it fares against it dual-core counterpart in the US, the Razr m.

As for the Motorola Razr i, the phone is a bit of an oddity. It comes with a single-core Intel Atom Z2460 processor clocked at up to 2GHz, with 1GB of RAM, 8GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, an edge-to-edge 4.3in 960 x 540 pixels display, an 8-megapixel camera that can take up to 10 shots in one second, an 11-hour battery life and a thickness of only 8.3mm.

What’s more, the smartphone uses premium material like Kevlar, a splashguard coating (to make it water resistant) and Corning Gorilla Glass 2.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
