"Amazing phone with great size."4.5 starson by ThePenguin17
Android 4.0 (With confirmed upgrade to 4.1 "soon")
SD Card support
As of release, no default support for App to SD
White model has very visable screws on the sides of the phone (Un-noticable on black model)
No Physical Back/Home/Apps button (Some might see this as a plus)
Summary: It seems like phones these days just keep getting bigger and bigger. I wanted a phone that actually fit in my pocket, and was comfortable to hold. I picked up the black Droid Razr M and it's a delight to use!
Display - Despite not having as high of a resolution as other phones out right now, the picture of the screen is great! Even at about medium brightness, colors pop and icons look very clear. Videos are wonderful. Although if you hold your phone very close to your face, you can see some blur on icons and such, but unless you are looking for it on purpose, you can't notice it.
Software/Hardware - The Droid Razr M comes with Android 4.0, and was stated that it will recieve Android 4.1 in the future. This paired with a dual 1.5Ghz processor makes using the operating system fast and fluid. I have not yet recieved any lag in animations or loading, even with quite a few apps open. By sliding right at the home screen, brings you to an option page with an options page to easily enable/disable Ringtone, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, Mobile Data (my old phone didn't have this, this is a BIG plus), and Airplane mode. As of the time I am typing this, by default this phone doesn't seem to allow App to SD, but with about 8Gigs of internal space, this should be enough for most people. I have not tried an app to allow me to move them to the SD card, but I don't have the need to as of now.
Camera - With all the positives about the phone, there has to be at least one downside, and this is the camera. In a room with lights, or outside, it takes what I would call "cell phone" quality pictures. It isn't up to par with a real camera, and there is nothing stunning about the quality, but it gets the job done. When taking a picture in an un-lit room, or dark areas, picture quality is poor. The flash helps to some extent, but if a camera is a major deciding factor in a phone, you might not find this up to par. The only time I use my phone camera is for quick shots or something while I'm out, or taking pictures of my cat, for some everyday use the camera will be good enough for most people.
Battery - The battery life on this phone is great. With brightness on medium, wi-fi on, I played some games, used the browser a lot, watched a couple videos online, my battery charge lasted about 3 days. If I didn't watch as many videos, and played less games, I'm sure I could push the battery maybe as far as 5 or 6 days.
Other Notes - The only other things I can mention is that the phone has no physical buttons. The Back/Home/Apps buttons are on the touch screen itself. I like this a lot, but it could be a deal breaker for some. The volume buttons and the screen on/off are right next to each other, it takes a little getting used to, I used to turn off the screen sometimes when trying to turn up the volume, but after playing around with the phone you'll learn not to do it. There was some bloatware when I got my phone, some app for buying shoes and some Amazon stuff, but with Android 4, you can just disable them all, wasn't a big deal to me.
If you are looking for a phone roughly iPhone sized, or just smaller than most Androids is the phone to get!
