An edge-to-edge screen

The Motorola Droid Razr M boasts a sizable 4.3-inch screen that's set in a narrow bezel. It helps the big, bright AMOLED display look bigger than it really is.

Slim and trim

Small in stature, the Motorola Droid Razr M easily fits in the hand. Its only physical controls are placed on its right edge.

Armor coated

Like many of Motorola's other handsets, the Motorola Droid Razr M sports a Kevlar fiber coating that resists scratches and scuffs. Also on back is an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash.

A nice view
