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.
