Best Buy introduces “platinum” version of Motorola DROID RAZR M


Verizon’s Motorola DROID RAZR M has been introduced in a couple of whacky colors as of late, with a pink version being launched to celebrate the “spirit” of Valentine’s Day, and it seems yet another new option is on its way. Actually, the latest option won’t even be available from Verizon yet — Best Buy is the only one stocking this beaut for the time being.

It’s being called platinum, and while we’re sure it’s not coated in the real form of that super premium metal it sure is made to look that way. The greyish tones are accented by blue buttons. The look may not work for some of you, but I sure wouldn’t mind taking one of these out of my pocket on a subway ride or two.

Other than its new colorway, though, this is the same device that Verizon and Motorola have always advertised. It features a 4.3 inch qHD display, Qualcomm’s 1.5GHz dual-core S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, an 8 megapixel 1080p HD camera, a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, a 2,000 mAh battery and more.

We’ll define it as a mid-range phone, but it wasn’t so long ago that this thing would have been considered a high-end beast. For just $50 we couldn’t ask for much more, so if this fits your budget more than, say, the DROID RAZR MAXX HD be sure to check it out at Best Buy’s site.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. You can only polish a piece of poop so much…

    1. Have you had a chance to use this device in person? I think it’s pretty good. Check out the droid life review . It feels good in hand, has a great processor, and is cheap. The only negatives are non hd and not a great camera. It would make a good entry level device

      1. True, this is a rather good device, and the camera is OK, too, under the right light conditions… But I personally prefer the Razr Maxx with its super battery, though it’s more expensive.

    2. This is currently my favorite Android phone on the market. Easily the best one on Verizon. Note that I said phone, not phablet. For $50 it’s outstanding and the 4.3″ screen size is perfection.

      1. Yeah, it’s a great phone for small people.

    3. This is definitely the best small phone out there. Great phone and great price for those who don’t need a Note 2

  2. I would buy it just because it reminds me of the RAZR V3 :)

  3. I’d rather get the note II

    1. The Note 2 is much more expensive :)))
