Motorola Droid Razr M 4G with Jelly Bean 4.1 2013 Review
The Motorola Droid Razr M 4G Android smartphone received a yummy treat to finish up 2012. Just in time for the holiday shopping season the Jelly Bean 4.1 Android operating system hit the Droid Razr M. That OS delivers a faster and smoother user experience than the previous Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) 4.0 operating system, as well as upgrades to the Google Now contextual search and virtual personal assistant. Camera operability has been improved, and several other updates arrive with Jelly Bean 4.1.
The Droid Razr M is available for a reduced sale price now starting at $49.99.
Running on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network in the United States, that handset can also operate on EV-DO, Rev A 3G and CDMA 800/1900 frequencies where 4G LTE is not present. A dual core handset, the Motorola Droid Razr and can function as a global phone, accessing both GSM and 3G networks. Verizon Wireless was recently hailed by Consumer Reports as the top wireless service provider in the United States, and on the Verizon 4G LTE system you can expect download speeds of 5 to 12 megabits per second (Mbps) and upload speeds of 2 to 5 Mbps.
The rugged Kevlar back plate and aircraft grade aluminum framing have returned from previous popular Droid Razr models, and the handset also provides Corning Gorilla Glass protection against scratches and scrapes. A special water repellent nanocoating is present for incidental liquid contact, and the handset is offered in your choice of black or white. Most recently spotted at a retail price of under $50 on contract at the Amazon Wireless store to kickoff 2013, the Motorola Droid Razr M 4G offers NFC wireless support out-of-the-box.
The Chrome for Android browser has been pre-installed, as have popular YouTube and Picasa applications. By stretching the display on the Droid Razr M from side to side and top to bottom, Motorola engineers were able to create a much more compact form factor than other phones with a 4.30 inch display. Accordingly, the Droid Razr M 4G measures 4.82 x 2.40 x 0.33 inches (122.5 x 60.9 x 8.3 mm), and weighs 4.44 ounces (126 g), making it lighter, smaller and more compact than the typical 4G smartphone.
The 4.3 inch qHD Super AMOLED screen delivers 540 x 960 pixel resolution, and DLNA offers video out. That capacitive, multitouch screen offers an above average pixel density at 256 pixels per inch, and the long life battery is 40% more powerful than the cell on the Apple iPhone 5. A generous 20.0 hours of talk time is offered from a single battery charge, with a full 17.0 days of standby battery power. A dual core 1.5 GHz CPU is on board, as is 1.0 GB of RAM memory and 8.0 GB of built-in storage. The built-in microSD slot allows for storage expansion, and the rear facing 8.0 megapixel camcorder offers video capture at 1,080P HD resolution.
You can purchase the Droid Razr M for a discounted price tag now starting at $49.99.
