Motorola DROID RAZR HD is listed (or ranked) 20 on the list The Top 20 Best Phones
Motorola DROID RAZR HD Sometimes named the best phone, I feel this fits 20th place much better.  The RAZR HD has a stunning display and okay specs, but $200 with a contract is pretty pricy for this phone.  It is a great concept, but it needs ...
