Google’s leadership has proven to be a great choice for Motorola in some ways, but not in all. They have made a lot of redundancies after they took over, but they are offering a lot more than before in the phone market. And even though they are still working with a loss of over 80 million per month, Google is there to fix it. Recently they introduced to the market a whole line of phones that have great quality and have their own appeal. One of these phones is the RAZR M, a “little” phone with great insides and a great market price.
This phone follows Motorola’s latest model line in the quality of workmanship and in design. But, even though this is a low end market product, it brings a lot for the asking price of $99 on a contract. It comes with the same Kevlar fiber body as its bigger brothers, with an aluminum bezel on the front side and a screen that stretches from top to bottom. One of the best-selling points of this phone is exactly the screen and overall dimensions. Even though it has a 4.3 inch screen, the overall dimensions of the phone are smaller than all of the competitors, measuring 4.82 inches height, 2.04 inches length and 8.4mm thickness.
The screen hasn’t got a HD pixel ratio, but it has good enough qHD (960 x 540) pixels, and being a Super AMOLED screen covered with Gorilla Glass protection, it gives great color saturation, low reflections and great viewing angles. The phone is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait processor, 1GB of working memory and Adreno 225 GPU that will run everything that you need.
Its built in 8GB of storage space, can be accompanied with a microSD card for the needy users. Its low point is its 8MP back camera with LED flash that is not so good in the night time and has a slow shutter speed, but it gives great pictures during the day. All the standard connections are also there, including the NFC chip.
The last great thing is that even though it comes with Android 4.0.4 ICS, it is upgradable to 4.1 Jelly bean, making it a great phone for the price.
