Costing a tempting $99.99 (with two-year contract) on U.S. Cellular, the Motorola Electrify M packs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean into a very small frame. Its 4.3-inch AMOLED screen is also colorful but offers a low qHD resolution.

A modest camera app
The Motorola Electrify M's camera has some useful scene modes and filters to choose from but can't match the amount of features on Samsung and HTC handsets.
