As you know, Motorola XT series are targeted at young people and are positioned as high-end smart phones with excellent entertainment performance, while Motorola Droid Razr phones have higher color saturation than iPhone 4S, and they are with a long battery life as well. However, having benefited from the convenience Motorola phones bring about, you may still get caught in situations where you find them unhelpful or lack of some useful functions, for example, export SMS messages from Motorola to PC.
