Motorola Droid RAZR M
16 November 2012
Excerpt: The Motorola Droid RAZR M is everything that the Motorola Droid RAZR was, but less. It's smaller and much less expensive than the RAZR was at launch. Despite the price, you get most everything that was captivating about the Droid RAZR: a slim design with a Kevlar back, Gorilla Glass and a water resistant nano-coating. It is as daring and sexy looking as the Droid RAZR and RAZR MAXX ? Not to our eyes.
Pros: Relatively clean Android OS, very hand and pocket friendly.
Cons: qHD display and plastics won't impress those looking for highest end stuff (we're not complaining for the price).
Conclusion: It’s sometimes hard to get excited about the mid-range smartphones, that legion of under-appreciated workhorses keeping the cost-conscious buyers afloat, one two-year contract at a time. Too often, the devices filling this segment of the landscape reek of compromise, with last year’s components stuffed inside an unremarkable casing bearing the unmistakable stench of mediocrity.
Pros: Durable, robust hardware, Very good battery life, Close-to-stock Android experience, Great data speeds and voice clarity, Improved camera over other Motorola offerings
Cons: It’s sometimes hard to get excited about the mid-range smartphones, that legion of under-appreciated workhorses keeping the cost-conscious buyers afloat, one two-year contract at a time. Too often, the devices filling this segment of the landscape reek of compromise, with last year’s components stuffed inside an unremarkable casing bearing the unmistakable stench of mediocrity.
Conclusion: The Razr M is one of the nicest handsets to hit Verizon in some time. It doesn’t have the flash of the iPhone 5 or Galaxy S3, but at half the price — $100 on a two-year contract – it’s more than worth the savings. The only weak points here are the camera and the lower-resolution screen, but the great build quality and feel of the Razr M combined with its moderately-sized screen should make it a top pick for those who want a great phone at a good price – but also don’t...
Pros: Feels great to hold, Feisty Snapdragon S4 processor, Clean version of Android 4.0, Good battery life, microSD
Cons: Camera isn’t great, UI can get jittery at times, Screen isn’t quite HD
Summary: The Droid RAZR M is a solid smartphone: it features great build quality, snappy performance, fast data, comfortable dimensions, and a bright display, and it does so at price that doesn’t break the bank. It’s not without its faults, I would have really loved to seen a higher resolution display and better camera, but for the most part, there’s a lot to like here.
Conclusion: It’s not the fastest, the most chiseled, or most cutting-edge DROID we’ve seen to date. However, when you’re getting an equipped smartphone that’s packing the same processing power as some of its esteemed colleagues there’s plenty to like about the Motorola DROID RAZR M . Of all the lovely things attached with the handset, it’s the edge-to-edge display that’s most amazing, which is made more spectacular when it translates over to being the most compact smartphone on the...
Pros: Killer $99.99 price point, Remarkable compact size, thanks to the almost bezel-less display, Fast processing performance
Cons: Mediocre camera quality, Still short battery life with LTE
Conclusion: The Razr M doesn't attempt to punch above its weight, instead preferring to sit in the mid-tier and get on with the task at hand. In that respect it does a good job. The design is compact enough to sneak into a pocket or clutch bag without being Samsung Galaxy S3 huge, and the battery life and software specs help deliver good performance too.
Pros: Big screen in a small package, fast, good design, Chrome pre-installed, Getting Jelly Bean, big battery
Cons: Last year's tech, no docking stations or accessories available,
