The Motorola Droid RAZR M is a nice “compromise” device: something well suited to people who want the best parts of a high-end smartphone, but don’t need all the bells and whistles. Some corners have definitely been cut to achieve its price, but not many; the majority of what’s been left out is features that most users can live without, like HDMI, a full HD display, etcetera.
What’s left is a great screen, solid performance, comfortable memory, and robust battery life. And with a suggested retail price of $100 after rebate — with some online retailers already offering it for $50 — it’s a tremendous value, and something that should definitely be considered by new smartphone users looking for that’s not just cheap, but robust enough for them to grow into it.
- Compact design
- Good specs
- Great price
- Erratic signal strength
- Non-removable battery
Despite some eccentricities, the RAZR M supplies a good user experience for a remarkably reasonable price.
