My Razr M pros and cons would be:
Pros - size, weight, call clarity, screen resists scratching, durability (have dropped it a couple times onto hard flooring from ~3-4'), loud ringer, voice activated apps work well (especially the Google Maps Navigaton).
Cons - the side on-off button is easy to hit by mistake, the speakerphone could be louder, I wish there was a physical on/off ringer button. Would be nice if the charger port was on or near the top instead of the lower left side so that I could stand the phone up in my car's center console cubby space while charging. Can't see the screen at all in bright daylight, you'll need to seek shade.
However late one night I awoke to a burning smell. Like a toaster with burning crumbs.....since I was in my room and didn't use any of my appliances, I knew this wasn't possible. I went to reach for my phone and it was SCALDING HOT! I couldn't even touch it.
I used another phone in the house to call verizon for instructions on what to do! They told me to place my phone in a "safe place" but not in water or the fridge or else I'd be liable for the "damage" if any occurred!
I placed my phone in an empty sink with no risk of water dripping on it and let it cool down. since the battery is built in, I could not remove it (the tech told me the battery was likely the cause for the overheating). it took me at least 24 hours to try to get my phone back on to get my info from the memory and transfer to the cloud. Then it was a nightmare even still to retrieve the info.
UGH. worst phone ever. do not recommend! A serious safety issue in my opinion too!!!
It has lots of storage & great for DL apps from the playstore. A great thing i love about it cos it had a bigger screen i can watch movies while i travel, there is an app called Crackle where you can watch movies & TV shows for free.
The camera is awesome & you can also record videos.
It has a fast 4G network for on the go internet & i love that you can Swype when texting or writing online Facebook etc...Swype lets you use your finger to spell the word instead of typing every letter individuallyso much easier & takes much less time than typing....i love this phone it does everything i need & everything creative that i love.I also got a pink otter box for mine so if it falls it won't break.
But, as I found out when finally using it during a busy travel week, that the call quality is... lacking. Its often too quiet for me to understand whoever I am speaking to on the phone if I'm in a public/busy place. A disappointment.
But for everything else its great! I would recommend it to heavy social networkers and texters, not so much if you're planning on using it for solely calling folks.
