Description

Motorola RAZR M is the RAZR HD's little brother. A pretty compact Android smartphone with a spacious qHD screen, beefy battery, and premium design. Then here is what you need to know about the Motorola RAZR M: first of all, it comes with an edge-to-edge, almost bezel-less 4.3-inch display with qHD resolutin (540 by 960 pixels). The panel is built using Super AMOLED Advanced technology, much like what we had on the very first RAZR. Processing power is delivered by a dual-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz and backed up by 1GB of RAM - a hardware combo that is identical to what makes the RAZR HD tick. There is an 8-megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash on its back, and a VGA cam up front for video chats.

  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 256 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

  • Positioning:

    Positioning - This field shows the positioning systems supported by the device. There are three main types: GPS, A-GPS and GLONASS. GPS - This is one of the most widespread global positioning technologies, developed and maintained by the U.S. government. It uses satellites in order to detect your location. Works best in clear weather. A-GPS - A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization. GLONASS - GLONASS is a global positioning system, developed by the Russian Federation. It’s very similar to GPS, but isn’t so popular in cell phones.
