The DROID RAZR M Is The Best Mid-Range Phone Available Today
The Motorola DROID RAZR M is an interesting offering on Verizon. It’s apart of the DROID RAZR family but it’s the budget phone in that lineup. However the specs on the phone don’t come off as budget. The first thing you will notice about the phone is the 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Advanced display. Its edge to edge on the phone so the front looks like it’s all screen. The display isn’t HD but is qHD which is 960×540 and 250ppi which gives a sharp and vivid image for the screen size. Internally it boasts very similar specs to the RAZR HD and RAZR HD MAXX with a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor and 1 GB of ram which keeps things running impressively fast and smooth for this category. It’s running Android 4.0 with very little UI changes and comes pre-installed with the Chrome browser which is the best browser to use if you have an Android 4.0 device. There is also fast 4G LTE speeds which is great for this level of smartphone. The overall build is more industrial but solid feel with a nice Kevlar back which provides a premium feel to it. There is a 8 megapixel rear facing camera but I’ll be honest, its not the best but it’s also not the worst. It’s the same middle of the road average camera that Motorola tends to put into all their phones.
The overall impression of the DROID RAZR M is that it’s a easy smartphone to recommend for first time smartphone users and those that don’t want to spend over $100 for a phone. I would like to see this phone priced closer to the $50 mark and soon free on contract but with the quality that you can you really can’t beat the price. Check out our video review for full details.
