The Motorola DROID RAZR is the first 4G
But like all of Verizon's other LTE handsets, the DROID RAZR gets hamstrung by awful battery life, even though it comes equipped with a respectably large 1780mAh battery that boasts up to 12.5 hours of talk time. It is, quite simply, a fantastic phone that just can't be used for long enough to be a daily driver for most people - unless you eat, work, and play near to a micro-USB sized charger or completely disable the LTE data. With LTE disabled, the phone performs quite well in terms of battery life, but that somewhat defeats the purpose.
That's a real shame, since the RAZR is otherwise likely the most desirable phone I have come across in 2011. It's an absolute gem of a phone, with severe LTE-shaped flaw. That the phone can suck down data at 15Mbps or faster is great, but it's not worth much if doing so only lets you use the phone for a few hours. Still, for the data hungry and those with the need to have the latest and greatest available, this phone is it.
