    I had the M and loved it. I had well over 100 apps installed and I still had half my storage free (of course, I used my sd card to store all my music, pics, etc). The battery life was almost as good as my RAZR Maxx (consistently got 24-30 hrs). It was always fast and responsive. The M does not have an hdmi port and the front facing camera is not as good as the RAZR (I think it's 1.3mp).

    Are you dead set on Motorola? You said you were looking for the cheapest route possible... Did you mean literally the cheapest, or the cheapest Motorola? The S3's have come way down since the S4 was released, but are still really good phones.

    You can't beat that price (well I suppose free would). It may be a lot more fun going from the Razr to the GS3. The M is so similar to the Razr that it may not be enough of a change. And sammy has been great with updates. I wouldn't be surprised to see the GS3 get an update to include many of the GS4 featuresin the near future.

    Had an SIII for a month to try out. I thought the UI was a little "clunky" but that can be changed by using another Launcher. The RAZRM is my first smartphone I haven't used a different Launcher with.
