Motorola Droid RAZR M / Luge
Phone Scoop Review
Sep 14, 2012 by Eric M. Zeman
Motorola must have struck a bargain with the devil to pack as much functionality as it did in the RAZR M. This impressive device claims to have it all, and just might deliver on that promise. read review ›
Compact large screen phone is high quality
I've had this little gem of a phone for over 2 weeks now, and I really like it. I was planning on getting an Iphone 5, but this phone seemed to have a lot more to offer.
Motorola did a great job in producing a high quality android phone with a 4.3 inch display, in a very compact form, and seems very easy to use. Since the screen is pretty much edge to edge, it gives you a a good size display, and still fits in a shirt pocket. The call quality is excellent, the user interface is great using ICS with some extra Motorola touches, like their "smart actions". I really like the default Motorola Droid wallpaper, and clock and weather widgets that come pre-installed. Very cool, fast phone with good battery life. I had the Razr Maxx before this, with almost unlimited battery life; but this Razr M is pretty close to it in battery life, and is so much easier to carry around with the same size screen.
Excellent call quality
Battery life better than most androids
Perfect size screen and phone.
Colorful, clear dispaly is 4.3 in.
Chrome browser works great.
You can add more home screens if you want.
Settings screen is always a swipe to the right.
Internal memory is 8GB, but can use 32 SD card for photos and music. Otherwise, no real cons.
wow this phone is dreadful...
I'm giving it a half star because I can occasionally speak on it and it somewhat works...although that's generous because the phone some times suddenly fires up the screen and then if you touch your face to the side, it hangs up your call.
I don't know where people find this to have 'long battery life' but I've now had the phone for a couple of months and the 'circles' applet already doesn't work and shows full battery life for me no matter how much is really left on there.
-its a phone
-there are increasing apps being made for android phones
-camera is decent but if you wanted a phone and not a camera...
-unintuitive menus and controls - very difficult and illogical to navigate
-very un-functional - on an iPhone (or, gasp...even a blackberry) you can easily copy information out of e-mails to your address book or wherever, that's a nightmare on this phone because it almost never automatically recognizes information (phone numbers, emails, etc.) and if you have to copy/paste, its very difficult to get working
-gmail DOES NOT back up your phone numbers - DO NOT BELIEVE what they tell you - go search message boards but this has been a problem for months and months - google's response? Do nothing...
-phone screen is unpredictable - some times you swipe it and it moves over one screen, some times it opens your picture gallery
-wifi chews through battery likes crazy - have to either turn it off and manually turn it on everywhere you go or just expect to constantly charge the phone
-everything, EVERYTHING takes multiple steps vs. simple shortcuts
How shall I say this...avoid like the plague.
