    Potamas, go to your settings and then about phone all the way at the bottom. It will give you all that information. Screen looks something like this.

    If you look at android version, you'll notice that screen shot is 4.0.4... that is ICS (ice cream sandwich). This screen shot the Android Version is 4.1.1 which is JB (jelly bean).

    And it appears you have the original Razr if the model # is xt912. The only difference between the Razr and the Razr Maxx is the size of the battery, with the Maxx having twice the size and lasts probably twice as long.

    The Razr M is a newer, smaller size, budget model Razr... very similar but not. It has less internal storage than the original Razr's, no hdmi slot like the original and the front facing camera is not as good. Display size is the same and I think it is better, crisper, clearer than the original. The Razr M has a slightly better processor and slightly bigger battery.

    Between the two, the resale value on the original Razr will probably be much better than the Razr M, imo.

    On the back of the phone, if you see indeed see XT 912 you have an original DROID RAZR. Not MAXX, not M, and not HD either. If it was advertised as the M, you did not get an M.

    Scratch that. The MAXX versions have the same model number. Its the GSM versions of the same phone that's different. But they do have different numbers.

    If the back of phone is wider by the camera its a razr, if the back is almost flat it's a maxx, the reason is, the maxx has a thicker battery so the back is flat, the razr back has a noticeable hump by the camera

    It's definitely not an HD. To know whether it's a Razr or a Maxx, you will need to look at the “About Phone" info again and look at the system version. The three numbers after the xt will identify whether it's a Razr or a Maxx.

    All HD series have kevlar 100% on the back and the camera port is in the middle of the phone. OG razr's the kevlar covers 85% of the back. OG razr's have a bright motorola logo with black lettering, OG razr maxx's have a black motorola with bright lettering on the front above the speaker.

    Go to System Settings. Scroll to the bottom click About Phone. Look at Model Number. Should say which phone you have.
