Verizon makes the Motorola Luge official, get the rebranded RAZR M for $200 off-contract

Motorola Luge Verizon

After we saw some leaked images of the Motorola Luge packaging back on Monday, it really shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to find Verizon finally making the device official (however quietly). Now available from Verizon for $300 straight up, or $200 with prepaid service, the “Luge by Motorola” is essentially 2012’s Motorola DROID RAZR M to the tee.

Because selling people a dusty old product probably wouldn’t sit too well with consumers, Verizon has simply rebranded the RAZR M with a new name to lure in all new buyers. As for a quick refresher, you can find the Motorola Luge packing the following cutting edge features:

Motorola Luge

  • 4.3-inch qHD display (with Gorilla Glass)
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960 1.5GHz dual-core
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB internal / micro SD expansion
  • 8MP camera
  • 2,000mAh battery
  • NFC
  • Android 4.4 KitKat

Interestingly enough, the Motorola DROID RAZR M is still offered on Verizon prepay. Same phone, different color, no discount. You know, should you be looking for the white model. Link for the Luge by Motorola provided below.

    I wonder if the original RAZR M can now be used on Verizon prepaid (since I have an old one laying around).

      Actually, it can:" rel="nofollow">

      Also, how was that phone? Were you ever happy with it (before upgrading, of course)?

    • ronk2010

      Is this phone worth it? My wife likes Moto and her phone is crapping out.

      • Phaz0n

        It’s a very well built mid-range device. The UI is very close to stock and runs buttery smooth. At $200.00 (prepaid), it’s hard to beat.

        • ronk2010

          Thank you. Is it worth $300? She is not on prepaid. Anything better for the price.

  • MK2

    Quite possibly the worst phone name ever.

      It’s a Luger

      I have to disagree. The name is very amusing to me since luge is a funny-sounding word.

    At least it comes with KitKat because the Razr M is stuck on Jellibean….hopefully it’ll be able to be upgradeable to Android L.
