    $99.00 after a $50.00 mail-in rebate is a great price for this phone. It may not be a hit for enthusiasts but for your average consumer I can see this handset flying off the shelves. Anyone picking one of these up for a family member or themselves?

    I'm seriously considering it as I've come to like the smaller form factor better. Though the qhd screen might be a put-off...

    It definitely looks like a good phone, especially for those who appreciate a small form factor without sacrificing screen size.

    I'm there... have the N7 tablet, so that covers the prettier screen and "pure android" need. :)

    Yeah, I can't wait! It is going to be a tough decision as to whether I stick with my Maxx or the Razr M. It looks like the only thing I lose with the M is the battery life (at this time, no problem because always have access to juice), no HDMI (still no problem because I never use it), lousy front facing camera (again, never use it), but the biggy is only 4.5 GB internal storage. Not sure how that will work with the amount of apps I install on my phones. But I really do not think that is a problem because my Maxx has approximately 4GB dedicated to Internal System Storage and I have over 2GB unused. The remaining 8GB internal sdcard storage built into my Maxx I can make up with my own ext sdcard.

    I think the tiny little beast will be faster with better memory and processor. Screen size is the same size as my Maxx so losing nothing there. Not sure about the compass... if it really does not have one and does it serve a purpose I really need if I am not even aware of it on my Maxx. I guess only time will tell, what, if anything, I am going to miss about my Maxx.

    Ever since I got the N7 I have shunned my phone a bit, feel kind of bad but that tablet is too amazing. I couldn't give up my MAXX but this phone is indeed intriguing.

    Thanks PC! That answered some questions I had while waiting for this phone. Funny how different websites reported specs for this phone vary. Some say has HDMI, others not. This definitely confirms the answer to that question. I think the white is ugly but I definitely am not gonna complain about the color.

    I don't have the MAXX and really haven't had a problem with the battery life of my RAZR until this past Friday. I was at a concert and the battery died just as my favorite band came on. :mad: Anyway, if battery life is a future concern, you could do what I did and buy a pocket charger. I picked up the Motorola P793 on eBay BRAND NEW for $23.50. Definitely worth it for when I go to my next concert!

    Here's something interesting...according to VZ website..the M has 30 more hours of standby time than the Reg Rzr Maxx however goes down 90 mins in Usage time compared to the maxx..thats seems pretty good since it only has a 2000 mAH battery..M impressed..:)

    My only hesitancy about this phone at this point is that I keep reading the camera is actually worse than the latest iterations of Moto's cameras. So I'm hoping to get some hands on usage with it to find out if there's any truth to that. I'm used to making sure I'm a statue when I shoot with a Moto camera, so if it's no different, that's fine by me. But if it's worse...

    Hey Tis, Did you receive the M yet? Curious to know if what jnt said is right? That would be a bummer. I hope it isnt something that would be a common problem with this new series of phones..But good to know now than later..Always nice to hear the good..the bad..and the ugly..lol

    No, still waiting. The camera will be one of the first things I check out... side by side to my Razr.

    I talked to them yesterday to see if it had been sent yet (and to make sure they weren't trying to appease me with no real intentions of sending me an M). She said it would be shipped Fed-ex and that it hasn't shipped yet and wasn't sure when it would be??? I told her I participated in a forum where others were patiently waiting to hear my thoughts on the M. She thought that was awesome. Maybe it will be more incentive to send me the phone sooner, lol! But it's free and I didn't make it to the event so I am just happy to still get it for free, even if it takes awhile.
