Like the Droid Razr M , the exceedingly minimized $99.99 Motorola Electrify M tries its hardest to hit the sweet spot among every one of the three. While it verges on pulling off this great deed, the more established gadget can't exactly remained up to try and a year ago's rival from Samsung, specifically the strong Galaxy S3. Yes, the Gs3 is more than a year old, yet it offers a superior cam, a more honed screen, and features aplenty at the same cost.

On the off chance that you've seen the Motorola Droid Razr M, you'll do a twofold take when you look at the Motorola Electrify M. If not for its fake silver metallic skin and ash tone, the handset would be the spitting picture of its Verizon kin.

Measuring 4.8 inches tall by 2.4 inches wide and 0.34 inch thick, the Electrify M has a frame of practically indistinguishable extents to the Razor M's. That is something worth being thankful for since both telephones are greatly pocket-accommodating and sufficiently minimal to slide into tight pockets effectively.

The Electrify M games a correspondingly chiseled physique with an appealing rectangular shape, smooth lines, and a delicately sloped base edge. The Electrify's catch and port format reflects the Razr's, as well, with a dainty volume bar and force key resting on the left side.

To crush a moderately substantial 4.3-inch show into a minimal suspension, Motorola selected to utilize an AMOLED board with a low qhd determination in the Electrify M.

Case in point, seeing the full desktop variant of was a bit of a strain on the eyes contrasted and when I had a striking resemblance site on the Samsung Galaxy S4 (5-inch screen, 1,920x1,080-pixel determination) or even the Samsung Galaxy S3 (4.8-inch screen, 1,280x720-pixel determination).

The Electrify M's screen does paint pictures and feature with a lavishly soaked color palette and profound, dull blacks, however. Review edges were likewise wide, however that may not appear like a critical variable, particularly in case you're normally the main individual looking at showcase. Actually so,being ready to see the screen well from an assortment of points enhances my general impression of a screen's survey experience.

Software and Interface 

At the point when the Motorola Electrify M first hit U.s. Cell's program in November 2012, it dispatched running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. As of late, nonetheless, the telephone's product has been redesigned to the more present day Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean working framework.

You can empower decides Smartactions recommends that are designed to expand battery life; for instance, closing off foundation adjusting of email and other information hungry redesigns, closing off GPS, and darkening the screen when the battery runs low.


I've said this before and I'll say it once more. The greatest shortcoming I've experienced with Motorola smartphones has been their advanced imaging frameworks. Where other telephone creators, for example, Samsung, HTC, Nokia, and now Sony have since a long time ago made cam performance a need, Motorola still needs to up its amusement. Unfortunately the Electrify M doesn't break the pattern.

Inside, in studio shots, the Electrify M's 8-megapixel sensor and lens caught still-life pictures that were dull with delicate points of interest. Picture quality did enhance outside under brilliant daylight and colors were distinctive and exact.

Shockingly, moving subjects, for example, anxious kids, were dubious to catch. More terrible, if the programmed scene mode chose to enact the HDR mode, the telephone frequently brought photographs with twofold pictures. This is a coming up short of HDR in all smartphone cams since the gimmick is so processor-overwhelming. Having the choice to withdraw HDR would settle the issue however I couldn't see an approach to do this inside the Electrify M's cam application.
