Motorola is going after the budget market with the DROID RAZR M, but this isn’t a low-end phone. The highlight of this phone is that it features an edge to edge 4.3-inch display with barely any bezel. This means the phone itself is smaller, but still gives you decent screen real estate. Let me show you what I mean. The DROID X had the same display size, but the dimensions of the phone were 5.02-inches by 2.58-inches. The DROID RAZR M comes in at 4.82-inches by 2.04-inches, and it’s also 1.6mm thinner. Another example is the The DROID Incredible 4G LTE, which is the same size physical size as the RAZR M, but the display is only 4-inches.
The DROID RAZR M display happens to be qHD (960 x 540), which is a little bit of a bummer, but for $99 you can’t complain. The rest of the specs include a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, microSD for up to 32GB of additional storage, 8MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, NFC, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Motorola promised it will receive the Jelly Bean update by the end of the year.
As I mentioned, it’s priced at $99 and it will be in stores next week while pre-orders already started yesterday. We will do a full review, but for now check out our quick hands on review.
