Starting Thursday, January 24th, anyone looking for a super bright pink DROID RAZR M from Verizon is in luck. To celebrate Valentine’s Day, the pink RAZR M is the same phone that they have been pushing for the past few months, but with this Droid Life-inspired exterior. We know you love us, Verizon. It has a 4.3″ qHD display, dual-core Snapdragon chip, 1GB of RAM, 8MP rear camera, and 2,000mAh battery (our full review here). (more…)
Is Motorola already preparing to push out an updated RAZR M with a 4.5″ HD display? According to a rumor out of PhoneArena, though they aren’t even willing to back the info all that much, that is indeed the case. As expected with an updated device, the specs have been bumped slightly, introducing a dual-core Snapdragon 4 Plus processor, 16GB onboard storage, and a massive 3300mAh battery, all while maintaing a small candy bar edge-to-edge design.
Is it real? While that’s anyone’s guess, it certainly makes sense for Motorola to continue the edge-to-edge styling of the RAZR M, but with upgraded specs. I loved the RAZR M (our review), other than its poor display. If this phone had an HD display slipped into that body and a bit more RAM, it might have come close to earning a spot as one of our top 5 phones of the year. (more…)
In 2012, we saw the Android smartphone world reach heights that I don’t imagine many predicted. On a spec front, 2012 was the year of quad-core processors, 2GB of RAM, HD displays, longer battery lives, and incredibly thin bodies. It seems like just yesterday that we were asking DL readers if they had a dual-core or single-core phone, yet here we are, with dual-core phones already becoming a thing of the past.
On a manufacturer front, 2012 was the year that Samsung proved that it really was the only big fish in a bowl full of minnows. We saw Motorola kick off its life as a Google-owned company, HTC struggle to make money even while releasing amazing phones, and LG take its turn as the face of the Nexus phone program.
In this post, I thought we’d talk a bit about all of that by listing out my top 10 phones of the year. (more…)
If you’re thinking about opening a line up on Verizon, the DROID RAZR M can be had for just $50 through Verizon’s new holiday “Share Everything” promotion. Currently, the RAZR M is listed for $99 through Big Red’s site, so if you were going to jump on it, you might want to give it a day or so to reflect the price change. No word on if some other devices will see a price drop, but we’ll keep you posted. (more…)
With the Motorola RAZR M taking its place as the first from Moto to carry Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), the ad campaign to promote it has already started. Thankfully, it’s not half bad. The spots brag about Google Now and its traffic monitoring powers, navigation re-routing in Maps, and best in the business text translations. But beyond that, they are worth a chuckle. (more…)
I love the holidays. It seems that all of my favorite things go on sale, including smartphones. For a limited time, naturally, AmazonWireless is hosting a deal on select Verizon devices that should make for some happy buyers.
The original DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX are both on sale for only a penny, while upgrading and new customers can get the Galaxy S3 16GB for just $79.99. If you’re looking for one of Verizon’s new phones, you can grab the RAZR M for one cent as well, or grab the slightly aged HTC Rezound for the same price. (more…)
Remember last year’s special edition RAZR MAXX that was created for Verizon employees? Similar special editions are on the way, only this time for a handful of devices. These exclusive color schemes will likely be kept to employees only, just like last year, with jealous enthusiasts like us hoping they pop up on eBay. (more…)
Apologies for the extra long title, but it all needed to be mentioned up front. So yeah, Motorola’s Punit Soni just announced a new program called “Test Drive.” It’s probably similar to the Motorola Feedback Network that allows users to join in “soak tests” of updates before they are pushed to the public, but this name is much snazzier.
