Motorola Elite Sliver Review

Life is busy and regardless if I’m in the car or at home being able to answer and make hands free calls is essential and thankfully I am a Motorola Insider because I recently had the chance to review the Motorola Elite Sliver.

The Motorola Elite Sliver seems to last forever which is good because I am terrible at charging my Bluetooth and typically my old Bluetooth would die the second I get into the car. That isn’t the case anymore because the Sliver has a standby time of up to 35 hours with the charging case and up to 15 hours of talk time with the charging case. Another good thing about the Sliver is its range which is up to 100 meters/333 feet. I love the range and on numerous occasions have tested it without even noticing how far I was from my phone. The overall call quality and clarity of the Motorola Elite Sliver is awesome and that is due to its HD Audio Plus as well as echo cancellation. It also comes with noise reduction and automatic volume adjustment.  I also love that the Sliver is super easy to connect to my phone and after about a month of use hasn’t disconnected for no reason unlike my old bluetooth headset.

My MotoSpeak which sends texts without touching your phone with the My MotoSpeak app on Android phones is available with The Motorola Elite Sliver and let me tell you this is an totally AWESOME feature. This is an extremely useful and helpful feature for me when I am in the car on my way to and from work.  I am now able to send text messages without ever having to look at my phone which is good because in Delaware it is illegal to text and drive plus it is dangerous regardless.

All in all the Sliver is one of the best bluetooth headsets that I have ever owned and I am happy to use it daily as it make my commute to and from work so much easier.

Droid Razr By Motorola – Best Phone I’ve Ever Owned

I recently became a Motorola Insider which means I get access to new Motorola products and a few weeks back I received the Droid Razr by Motorola. Now I want to start this review by telling you that Melinda says that I hate every phone that I have ever owned but she is 100% wrong this time.

To me the Razr is the fastest phone that I have ever owned plus it is 4G which is pretty awesome. The Razr is powered by a Dual-Core 1.2GHz , Dual-Channel RAM Processor that runs the 2.3.5 Gingerbread Android platform which is Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) upgradeable. The Razr has an awesome 8MP rear facing camera and a 1.3MP front facing imager with 720p HD video capture.  It also comes with 16 GB of internal memory; 16 GB microSD card pre-installed (Black model only).

So far I am about 3 weeks into using my new phone and so far I love it.  A cool feature of the Droid Razr by Motorola is Smart Action.  Smart Action can make tasks easier by automating actions you do every day.  Here are a few examples of what Smart Action can do for you:

  • Sleep – Turns off ringer when you go to bed.
  • Morning – Automatically launches the news each morning.
  • Workout – Plays music when you use headphones.
  • Local Discovery – Launches Social Location every night to help you discover new things around you.

These are just a few things that Smart Action helps you with.  Another really cool feature I just stumbled upon is Motocast Remote Access.  Motocast allows you to stream and sync music and photos from your computer to your phone.  All you have to do is plug your phone into your computer via a USB cable to setup an initial account and after that you are in business.  This is a fairly new feature for me so I am still testing it but so far it is pretty awesome.

I am being 100% serious and honest when I tell you that the Droid Razr by Motorola is the BEST phone that I have ever owned. It is extremely fast and processes every task that I throw at it with no problem.  The display is large (which I really like believe it or not) at 4.3-inches and is Super AMOLED which makes the display look so vivid and alive.  The battery life is awesome and on a day where I use the phone heavy for Facebook, Twitter and surfing the internet I get about 10-12 hours on the battery.  My old phone would crap out after 4-5 hours no matter how much I used it.

I am sure there are so many more features that I am leaving out because most likely I haven’t stumbled upon them yet but it you are looking for a new phone and into tech stuff like I am click HERE for full details on the Razr.
