I have been using the Razr2 for over a month, and while playing around on the Sprint site, I guess I ordered a Katana DLX instead of selecting "cancel." Oops. So while I wait for Sprint to send me the return kit for the Katana DLX, I figured I could compare it to my Razr2. [sarcasm] It's not everyday that you get treated to a review of two phones that have been out for 6 months or so, so everyone should feel very lucky! [/sarcasm] Appearance: Razr2 wins this in a landslide. This is easily the "sexiest" phone I have ever owned. The only drawback is that it likes to attract fingerprints. They wipe off easily enough though. I have the silver version of the Katana DLX, and it is not going to catch anyones attention (unless you blind them with a reflection off this shiny upper portion of the flip). I get the feeling this phone would scratch up easily as well. Build quality Razr2 wins again, though not my much. The DLX feels cheap and plastic-y. It does have the nice Sanyo click when opening and closing the flip. I'm not sure why I like that as much as I do, but it is nice. The metal housing of the Razr feels much more sturdy, and the added weight of the phone makes me feel like I actually have a phone and not a toy in my hand. I also like the wideness of the Razr. It is more comfortable to hold for long periods of time than the narrower form of the DLX. Also, texting is a lot harder on the DLX because the keys are not easy to feel and they are tough to push. The location of the charging port and the volume buttons on the Katana also leave much to be desired. Reception Razr2 wins by a little. Can't go wrong either way though. Call quality Razr2 wins again, though not by much. The DLX earpiece sounds a bit muffled, but it is nowhere near as bad past Sanyos. Razr2 sounds better though and also has a better sounding speakerphone. OS/Menus/Speed Katana wins this one. The Sanyo UI is better organized and more intuitive IMO. It is also more responsive and the DLX will open programs faster. The DX also includes a much better version of the Sprint Mobile email client than is available for the Motorola. Texting on both requires patience, as they are both slow to respond to keypresses. I actually think the Razr2 fared slightly better in the SMS department. Bell & Whistles Razr2 wins, but this is close too. The 2 large QVGA displays (inner is 262K, outer is 65K colors) on the Razr2 are very nice. It is easy to take self-portraits and to watch Sprint TV without opening the phone. NIce. The DLX has a sharper screen, because it is the same resolution as the Razr2, but also is smaller than the Razr's, Still, the smaller screen makes web browsing less fun than on the Razr2. The camera on the Razr2 is 2.0MP vs. 1.3 on the DLX, but the picture quality on both is pretty darn good for a cell phone. Tie or very slight edge to the Moto here. Music players are about the same, standard Sprint Music store crap. No MP3 ringers on the DLX though, which is puzzling. Overall, on a scale of 1-10, I would give the Razr2 an 8 and the Katana DLX a 6.5 to a 7.
