It's been 2 1/2 years since my last smartphone upgrade and for the first time in forever I did not get a Motorola. I've had 3 of the flip phone Razr's, a Droid and most recently a Droid Razr. Was it the features? Nope. The brand? Nope. I simply liked the looks of this one best with its brushed metal and slimmer look. All about design baby!
