It’s customary to see tear down videos of new devices hit the web shortly after their release. The new DROID RAZR M from Motorola is no different. In this video from DirectFix, owners are shown how to fix their own LCD displays instead of sending it in for a replacement. Independence? Yeah, that’s what America is all about. (more…)
Motorola and Intel announced the first phone of their partnership this morning in London, dubbed the RAZR i. The RAZR i looks almost identical to the RAZR M that was announced a couple of weeks ago, but the insides are quite a bit different. This is the first mainstream device to run one of Intel’s Atom processors, which has been clocked at 2.0GHz. While it’s only single-core, it should be incredibly efficient and powerful enough to get any task done without hesitation. Battery life is also said to be “40% more powerful than the competition,” whatever that means. (more…)
If you head into a Verizon store today and buy a DROID RAZR M, part of the package will include a special paper from Motorola with an NFC chip inside. If you touch your NFC-equipped RAZR M to that paper, you are redirected to a website that features an “exclusive” wallpaper that you won’t find on the device itself. Since we are kind souls, we have the wallpaper for you above. Not bad, right?
Today is the day! The Motorola DROID RAZR M is available for $99 on new 2-year contract. I know I seem to be far too excited over a $99 mid-range smartphone, but this is easily Moto’s best work in years. It’s a small package with a big vibrant display, excellent performance, and stellar battery life. While I’m not necessarily a fan of the kevlar back or the below-average camera, everything else about this phone is top notch. The size, though small compared to the Galaxy S3, is a welcomed change since Motorola managed to keep the display at 4.3″, which they are claiming to be “edge-to-edge.”
The DROID RAZR M by Motorola was introduced last week as a mid-range device with, for the most part, top tier specs on Verizon. It sports an “edge-to-edge” display, dual-core processor, and Ice Cream Sandwich in one of the smaller packages we have seen in some time. Motorola was trying to give this phone something new by keeping the display itself big, but shrinking down the phone to make it much more manageable in one hand. They succeeded and then some. I may as well admit it now, that I’m a big fan of this phone even if the display is only qHD. Let’s talk about it. (more…)
On September 17 in London, Motorola and Intel are going to unveil the first Android smartphone that they built together. We don’t have confirmation of this (well, one news outlet did), but we are fully expecting it to be the RAZR M with an Intel Medfield chip instead of the Snapdragon S4 that we are getting here in the States. The “edge-to-edge” display was the major selling point for the device here, so to see them throw those terms out again for this London event only makes sense. This teaser says nothing but “edge-to-edge” every few seconds.
The device could potentially look like this, with a grey exterior instead of the black and white color schemes we were introduced to last week.
The wallpapers from the DROID RAZR M (our unboxing) have been packaged up and released as an app to the Play Store for your downloading pleasure. I must say, that the wallpapers included with this phone are some of the more beautifully designed that we have seen in some time. It’s pretty obvious that they were created in order to show off the vibrant Super AMOLED display of the device, something they do a great job of. If rainbows and ladybugs aren’t your thing, you do have 3 or 4 DROID-inspired walls as well.
Motorola announced the DROID RAZR M on Wednesday in a press event that took place in NYC. We all watched the event live and then talked about it throughout a number of posts. But today, a unit arrived for me to dive into in a more intimate setting. So since we are out of the hustle and bustle of a press event, we thought we should do a brief unboxing and then a quick look at Blur, the outside, and all of that jazz.
I’m not sure if you’ll be able to tell from the video or not, but so far, I’m actually liking this lil’ guy. The screen is definitely edge-to-edge for the most part, colors are popping off the display (even if it is qHD), it’s fast thanks to the Snapdragon S4 processor, and this new Blur is as close to stock as we’ve seen from any OEM skin. It has some quirks that I’m interested to watch play out. I’m also interested to see what battery life is like. It shouldn’t take long it figure most of that out.
Pre-orders are live now, with devices arriving in stores on September 13. Enjoy.
