    A Big Screen That Fits In Your Hand

    Spanning edge-to-edge, DROID RAZR M's display measures 4.3 inches yet the phone still fits in the palm of your hand, making it an impossibly compact smartphone. The big display also means you get 40 percent more screen space than the leading competitor. Tapping out texts and emails is easier than ever, while reading on the go is easier on the eyes. Web pages, apps, videos--it's all clear on the vibrant, high-resolution Super AMOLED Advanced display.

    Desktop Browsing Gone Mobile

    Get the web browsing power of your home computer in the palm of your hand. With Verizon's 4G LTE network, you can surf the web at speeds like you have at home--maybe even faster. And then there's DROID RAZR M's Chrome for Android mobile browser. Besides jumping between pages as quickly as you can type, this mobile browser "talks" with your desktop's version of Chrome--letting you sync up bookmarks and even view the same tabs you have open on your computer. And, with DROID RAZR M's high-res, 4.3-inch display, it all comes through in eye-opening detail.

    Premium Materials for Premium Protection

    Designed with premium protective materials, the DROID RAZR M is built to go everywhere. An aircraft-grade aluminum frame surrounds the display, which is made of Corning Gorilla Glass to deflect both scratches and scrapes. On the back, DROID RAZR M is made KEVLAR strong. Spilled coffee? Caught in the rain? Don't worry. DROID RAZR M is protected with a water-repellent nanocoating--even the electrical boards inside.

    Circles Widget

    Stay in the loop with a single glance. The Circles Widget keeps handy information like remaining battery, weather forecast and time right on your home screen. There's even a quick "Set Alarm" shortcut for last minute deadlines. And, if you receive a text, miss a call, or get a voicemail message, the Circles Widget will notify you.

    SMARTACTIONS

    While the DROID RAZR M already has a long-life battery, when you set up the SMARTACTIONS battery saving rules your phone settings will automatically adjust to squeeze even more from every charge. Set up the SMARTACTIONS driving rule, and when you're behind the wheel, you see only what you need--like access to turn-by-turn directions and your favorite music.

    The Google You Love, on a Phone You'll Love

    The DROID RAZR M brings you the best of Google--and at blazing 4G LTE speeds. Stocked with more than 600,000 apps, millions of songs and books, and thousands of movies, TV shows and magazines, Google Play puts everything you want all in one place. And, using the power of the cloud, you can read, listen, and watch all the content you buy via Google Play Store anywhere you want.

    Get where you need to go with Google Maps with Navigation (Beta). Whether you're on foot, in the car or headed out on your bike, type or speak your destination. DROID RAZR M will lead your there, with free turn-by-turn directions and voice guidance. Plus, you can save your favorite starting (or stopping) points.

    Wish you had an extra set of hands? Use your words, instead. Voice Actions on DROID RAZR M can send your text, read the directions, make a call, Google something, play your songs, and more. It's plenty fast and accurate, so there's no waiting around only to have to try again.

    Never lose a photo again. With Google+, every picture you take on your DROID RAZR M can be automatically uploaded to a private album online. Keep snapping--you have unlimited uploads.

    Get a great paid app for free every day, see app recommendations based on your past Amazon purchases, and shop using Amazon's secure 1-Click payment technology. You can also test apps on a simulated Android phone using a feature called "Test Drive."

    Leave the User Guide in the Box

    The DROID RAZR M comes pre-loaded with interactive, swipe-by-swipe tutorials for tons of features and easy access to a most commonly used quick settings page. Part of Motorola's exclusive Help app, you won't find these tutorials on other smartphones.

    Vital Statistics

Its 2000 mAh lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 20 hours of talk time, and up to 408 hours (17 days) of standby time.

    Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Network

    The Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network allows you to download photos, apps, and games in seconds and entire movies in minutes. LTE (or Long Term Evolution) provides significantly increased upload and download speeds over 3G networks, as well as significantly reduced latency (or lag time). Verizon Wireless expects 4G LTE average data rates to be 5-12 megabits per second (Mbps) on the downlink and 2-5 Mbps on the uplink in real-world, loaded network environments.

    With these blazing fast speeds, you'll be able to stream HD movies without the annoyance of constant pauses to buffer the video stream--as well as quickly download HD-quality movies right to your phone in minutes. Additionally, you'll be able to download a new song file in about 4 seconds or upload a photo to your favorite social networking site in about 6 seconds.

    The Verizon Wireless 4G LTE mobile broadband network will also redefine the mobile office for business users. Business applications that used to require wired networks will be untethered forever, allowing you maximized productivity and efficiency while you're out of the confines of your office. Enhanced security lets you tap into most VPN networks with less waiting, and faster responsiveness enables you to upload 10 MB presentations back to your team in less than 25 seconds.

    In areas serviced only by 3G, you can expect download speeds of 600 Kbps to 1.4 Mbps and upload speeds of 500 to 800 Kbps in Mobile Broadband coverage area.

    Verizon Wireless Services

If your phone is lost, stolen, or damaged, or you decide to upgrade, easily restore your saved address book to your new phone. You can also add, delete, edit, and print your contacts online and send the changes to your mobile phone. There are no subscription fees for the service.

    VZ Navigator Capable: With this GPS-enabled phone, you'll be able to access the Verizon Wireless VZ Navigator service (additional charges applicable) for voice-prompted turn-by-turn directions, heads-up alerts, local search of nearly 14 million points of interest in the US (such as landmarks, restaurants and ATMs), and detailed color maps.

    Visual Voice Mail: This innovative service enables you to delete, reply, and forward voice mail messages without having to listen to prior messages or voice instructions. Visual Voice Mail is the ideal tool for the busy mobile professional who may need to prioritize which messages he or she listens to first. Features include on-screen access to voice mail message status, save up to 40 messages for 40 days (or archive permanently), create up to 10 different caller ID-based greetings, and reply via call back, text or even voice mail.

    Android 4.1: Jelly Bean


    This device is upgradeable to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, packed with features to help you tackle your busy day. Jelly Bean improves on the simplicity and beauty of Android 4.0 and introduces a new Google Search experience. No matter what life throws your way, your phone helps you stay one step ahead.

    What's New and Cool

    What you need to know, before you have to ask - Once you opt in, Google Now tells you today's weather before you start your day, how much traffic to expect before you leave for work, when the next train will arrive as you're standing on the platform, or your favorite team's scores while they're playing. And the best part? All notifications are generated automatically and in real-time, before you even have to ask.

    Google Voice Search: A new way to search - Need an answer fast? Now you can just speak your question directly to your phone. "Do I need an umbrella today?" "Where is the nearest gym?" Your phone will speak back the answer, or run a quick search to get you exactly the info you need.

    Notifications you can act on - Now you can take action directly from the notifications shade. Late for a meeting? E-mail everyone to let them know. Missed a call? Call them back in an instant. And because they're expandable, you can get an even deeper look into the things that matter most, like multiple e-mails or photos on Google+.
