In a year dominated by the cloud and new OS updates from Apple and Google, hardware design understandably took a back seat to software. But that doesn’t mean people want to carry a slab that looks like everything else on the shelf. Kudos to Motorola for making a smartphone in the Droid RAZR that’s not only breathtakingly thin but also solid as a rock. The body has a Kevlar-infused design that feels incredibly durable, and we appreciate the scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass screen and water-repellent coating. Bonus: It’s now available in white.
