While the HTC One, Galaxy S4 and Xperia Z1 have pushed baseline Android handset specifications forward this year, the RAZR M still stands as a real attempt by Motorola to bring some power to the smaller handset form factor — it’s just a shame that it’s now last year’s definition of “power”. I was quite fond of it when I reviewed it last year.
Telstra’s sale – exclusive to the carrier’s online store – follows Dick Smith Electronics‘ sale earlier this week, but beats the retailer’s price by $70. The phone also comes with a Micro SIM with $30 of “Get Started” credit.
Either way, the RAZR M is a neat little handset. I’m tempted to pick one up on that basis alone. Will you?
As the phone is sold with a Telstra pre-paid service, it is network locked. We’ll find the unlocking fee and update shortly. Telstra confirms via Twitter that the device is not network-locked:
@JM77 There is no unlocking fee. The only phones locked to Telstra are Apple phones. Regards – Tom
