Building on Intel's claims that there's currently no need for multi-core processors in a smartphone, Motorola went so far as to claim the Razr I's 2GHz single core chip could outperform the dual core A6 processor housed in Apple's forthcoming iPhone 5.
"What's more, the Razr I is 40 percent more powerful than the iPhone 4S," said Jim Wicks, senior vice president at Motorola.
However, this bold claim may prove to be of little consequence, with Apple’s iPhone 5 released on Friday.
Nevertheless, while we haven't had a chance to test smartphone against Apple's flagship iPhone 5, we were impressed with the device on its own merits, with our opening tests showing Motorola's new handset as a quick and capable device.
