Black Friday and Cyber Monday may be over, but that doesn’t mean the holiday sales are finished. Motorola just announced that its Droid Razr M is on sale for $50 with a two-year contract. Motorola slashed the handset’s price in half for the holidays (down from $100). This is one of the cheaper high-end devices on the market right now, especially for Verizon users who don’t have many options in that price area. By point of comparison, phones such as Nokia’s Lumia 820 are typically priced in that $50 range.
On the whole, Motorola’s Droid Razr M is a rather impressive device. It may not have the same attention-grabbing flash as Samsung’s Galaxy S3 or Apple’s iPhone 5, but for $50 it has a solid battery life, a speedy Snapdragon processor and it feels great to hold. We praised it in our full Razr M review.
The device comes equipped with a 4.3-inch AMOLED display and Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), which is one of the most recent iterations of Google’s Android software. It also features an 8-megapixel camera, 1GB of RAM, and 4G LTE connectivity. The only downside is its rather paltry 8GB of internal storage, but it features a microSD card slot for expanded storage. For those who like to customize, the Droid Razr M offers users the ability to create and add home screens as needed, rather than stocking a bunch of blank ones that usually remain empty. This isn’t found in other Android-powered phones, nor is the Quick settings menu Motorola has implemented.
