Verizon has quietly started offering theas part of its no-contract smartphone lineup. Known as the Motorola Luge, the handset is identical to the Razr M in nearly every single aspect.
Since the Luge is essentially a 2-year-old phone, its specifications pale in comparison to today's typical handset. With that said, there's still enough here to get the basics done.
Key hardware features include a 4.3-inch qHD display, an 8-megapixel rear camera, and 2,000mAh battery. Powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, the Motorola Luge also has 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage. On a positive note, this version comes with Android 4.4.2 KitKat, a much newer version of the platform than the OS originally delivered on the Razr M.
The Motorola Luge is available beginning Thursday for $200 without a contract.
