Good Deal: Telstra puts Motorola’s RAZR M on sale for $199

Looking for a cheap Android handset? Telstra is selling the white version of Motorola's year-old RAZR M at its online store for just $199. 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... Continue reading

Will Motorola’s RAZR M & RAZR HD phones see a KitKat update in Australia?

It's update day for Motorola, and today's updates may contain a welcome surprise for owners of their 2012 flagships, the RAZR HD and RAZR M. Stateside, Motorola released a KitKat update for the Moto X, making it the first Android OEM to do so, and it's even beaten the Google Play Edition Galaxy S4 and HTC One devices to the punch. Contrary to earlier reports, Motorola's support site is today showing that the HD & M handsets will see an update to KitKat. This is a little surprising as both devices stopped receiving...

Motorola RAZR M — Auction

Today we're doing something a little different. We have a Motorola RAZR M, which we've held for the last six months or so following our review of this great little phone last year. This is just one of a number of phones which graces Ausdroid's storage cupboard and it's time to make some space. As this is one of the devices we've purchased, rather than received as a freebie to review, we'd like to recover a little bit of our outlay (we paid $600 for this RAZR M), but we also want to...

Motorola extends the $100 cashback for RAZR M

Earlier in the year, perhaps facing increased competition in the mid-range handset market, Motorola announced that it would offer a $100 rebate to those who purchased the Motorola RAZR M through Telstra. This ran from February to 31 March, and I can only imagine it was a somewhat popular promotion. Why? Because Motorola have told Ausdroid that they'll be doing this again! From today until 1 July 2013 (or until stocks last) Motorola will be again offering a $100 rebate to those purchasing the Telstra version of the Motorola RAZR M -- either outright, or on a plan. Claiming the... Continue reading

Motorola RAZR M — Jelly Bean Update — OS Review

From the moment I finished watching the Livestream of the RAZR M launch I knew I wanted to get my hands on this phone. I loved the idea of a smaller, more manageable size phone with a display that was still big enough for my man-sized fingertips. The 3.5in display on my 4th Gen iPod is genuinely difficult for me to manage. My Nexus S at 4.0in was even a bit small, especially with typing. Having owned a Galaxy S II, I knew that a 4.3in display would be my ideal minimum. After only a few days it became obvious... Continue reading

Winner of Motorola RAZR M ™ competition announced

A week ago, entries closed in our Motorola RAZR M ™ competition. We asked you to tell us, in 25 words or less, what made you faster, smarter or stronger, and boy oh boy did we receive a tonne of entries — just under 600 in fact. The team and I have been flat chat reviewing entries, posting news and doing general Ausdroid things, so unfortunately it's taken us a little while to get to this point, but here we go. First prize has been awarded to Alex D. of New South Wales, for his entry: Not allowing my disABILITY... Continue reading

Motorola RAZR M — Review

Motorola delivers a solid 4G LTE phone with a 4.3 inch edge-to-edge screen. Motorola’s second release this month, the RAZR M is a 4.3 inch 4G LTE device. In many ways, it’s the RAZR HD’s little brother, using mostly the same internals (CPU, RAM, graphics). Where the HD brought a 4.7 inch display, huge battery and a focus on media, the M brings a smaller 4.3 inch display with minimal bezel and a respectable 2000 mAh battery. The M also misses out on HDMI output and has a lower resolution front-facing camera. Ausdroid tested the RAZR HD earlier this month... Continue reading
