Silver Motorola V3, opened

The Motorola V3, or RAZR V3, is a quad-band clamshell phone released by Motorola in 2004. It is the first model of Motorola's RAZR series of phones.

Feature-wise, it's identical to Motorola's prior V500 line of phones, but the RAZR V3 stood out thanks to its unique design and ultra-thin body. It is arguably the world's best-selling clamshell phone to date [1].

Variants[edit]

  • V3r: Added "Voice Notes" feature to forward audio recordings to voicemail.
  • V3re: An update of the V3r to support EDGE.
