Motorola Droid RAZR M Quick Review
Motorola said that Droid RAZR M was made for people who want to live with smaller Android handset. Well, i couldn’t agree more with them since my small posture makes me look even weird when i hold bulky device like Samsung Galaxy Note. That is why i decide to make a quick breakdown on Droid RAZR M, just to give you a picture if this handset really manage to live up to it’s expectation: make small android phone fans happy!
Let’s start with the price and carrier support. Droid RAZR M is currently priced at $100 on contract. Verizon is the place that you need to go to if you want to grab the handset with that price. Like i said earlier, Droid RAZR M’s small dimension makes it a perfect buddy for people who love to wear skinny jeans or other outfit that usually feature small pockets. But don’t take it wrong guys, Droid RAZR M has what it takes to sustain though damage from modern day world. It is currently coated with solid metal body with Kevlar-made rear cover. You should have no worry about scratch damage since Droid RAZR M display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 2.
I am already spend couple of hours with Droid RAZR M demo unit that Verizon will happy to send me and i am pretty satisfied with the sounds quality. Speakers are nice and loud. Call quality was impressive. Add that with Verizon’s incredible 4G LTE networ and you have an ultimate android handset packed in tiny chassis. However, i am not too happy with how’s the camera work. When i try to capture any object that posses red color, the image was bleeding. It lack of focus and there is no point of using touch focus feature because it doesn’t work at all! I am pretty sure that the problem lies on the software, so i hope Motorola will release new OTA fix for this annoying bugs soon.
Motorola Droid RAZR M also support for NFC connectivity, which mean you can send multimedia files over the air using Android beam. Unfortunately, not all Android handset packed with this feature, so the compatible devices are quite limited at the moment. In terms of battery life, Droid RAZR M manage to impress me with it’s ability to last over midnight. I already run few test with GPS, WiFi turned on, and heavy gaming and the handset still manage to bring incredible power management system.
There are also plenty of bloatwares from Motorola. I am not saying that i don’t love MotoBlur UI, but there are some apps that i won’t even bother to open on the entire life of my Droid RAZR M. I hope that people at XDA will find a way to root this device soon, so i can get those insignificant apps removed. That’s because Droid RAZR M only posses 8GB internal data storage, which i manage to fill up in less than a day, so i need extra space to load some other goodies. It’s also a good ideas to plugin in 32GB/64GB microSD card into the available slot.
Well, that is all i can say about Motorola Droid RAZR M. Overall, it is a pretty amazing non-giant Android handset. If you put high value in portability and style, you better grab yourself a new Droid RAZR M. It might running on Android 4.0, but Motorola said that Jelly Bean update will be available by the end of this year. Should be a great bargain to consider grab this handset.
