Motorola DROID RAZR M Review: This Is What Budget Phones Are Like Now? Where Do I Sign Up?

"The new Motorola starts today." That was new CEO Dennis Woodside's proclamation during the unveiling of the new RAZRs, and I think that statement gives away a little more than intended. Smartphone development takes the good part of a year, so they're implicitly admitting that these phones were made by someone else. That "someone else" being the old Motorola.

Yes, Google's deal to buy Motorola was announced a little over a year ago, but, thanks to all the regulatory bodies around the world that had to approve the deal, Google has only been in charge of Motorola for about three months.

[Deal Alert] Droid RAZR M Pops Up On Wirefly For $80 (20% Off) For New And Upgrading Customers

The RAZR M was certainly one of the more interesting phones Motorola announced last week, even if it did come with a disappointing definition of "edge-to-edge." Today, the phone launched on Verizon Wireless, but if you're already looking to score a discount, Wirefly has both the black and white versions available for $79.99 with a new two-year contract, or for upgrading customers.


Keep an eye out for Ron's review of the RAZR M later today.

Motorola Droid RAZR M Launches On Verizon Wireless Today, Get It For $99 With A Two-Year Agreement

Just one short week ago, Motorola took to the stage in New York City to talk about the DROID RAZR HD/MAXX and RAZR M. While we don't know much in terms of pricing and release information for the former, the latter just became available on Verizon's website and in all retail locations.


For those who may be unfamiliar with the RAZR M, it's the littlest brother of the RAZR line, packing similar specs to last year's cutting edge namesake in a much smaller form factor:

  • 4.3" 540x960  display with "almost no borders" and Gorilla Glass
  • 1.5GHz dual-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB storage, microSD card slot
  • 4G LTE connectivity
  • 8MP rear shooter
  • NFC
  • 60.9 x 122.5 x 8.3; 126g
  • 2000mAbh battery
  • Android 4.0.x

The RAZR M marks a new high for "budget" devices, as the device only costs $99 with a two-year agreement.

Hands On With The New DROID RAZR Family

I just got back from New York, the city of absolutely no internet, and now I can finally tell you about my experiences with the new RAZRs - the DROID RAZR HD 4G LTE, DROID RAZR HD MAXX 4G LTE, and DROID RAZR M 4G LTE. (My shift key is going to get a workout today!)


The design and construction of all 3 phones is basically the same. A stitched Kevlar back with a rubber coating, a plastic body, and an industrial-style design with exposed, prominent screws.

[Editorial] It Is Finally Time To Start Getting Excited About Motorola Again

Today, something happened that has not happened in an age: I actually got excited while watching a Motorola event. Don't get me wrong, the devices were still middling at best (though the RAZR M does seem kind of snazzy). What happened wasn't that Motorola announces some earth-shattering devices. No, this was more important: Motorola got its groove back. Or, perhaps more accurately, Motorola started syncing its old groove up with Google's current one.

Motorola Allegedly Confirms RAZR M Will Pack Intel Atom Processor In The UK

Speaking to Pocket-Lint at today's unveiling of the RAZR M and RAZR HD, Motorola has reportedly confirmed that the RAZR M will be announced in the UK with an Intel chip, ousting the Qualcomm S4 found in the US Verizon version. Pocket-lint says the device will also get a "name change," but that just may be referring to the dropping of the DROID branding.

What we've seen of Intel phones so far hasn't been too impressive, so let's hope Motorola has managed to tame the Medfield-based Atom processor into something you'd actually want inside your smartphone.

The past hour has been full of Motorola this, and RAZR that for most of us here in the US, but what about our brothers (and sisters) to the north? If you want some RAZR HD love, Rogers is the place to be. The only place to be, in fact, at least for an LTE version of the device.


Motorola just announced that the newly-unveiled RAZR HD will be making its Canadian debut exclusively on Rogers Wireless in all of its 4.7" glory.
