Motorola ELECTRIFY M Review

Score: 6.41/10
Motorola Electrify M 4G LTE XT901 U.S. Cellular

Motorola ELECTRIFY M is a not so powerful device launched back in 2012, which counts with a 4.3 inches multi touch display, a 1.5 GHz Dual-Core processing unit, and two cameras, an 8 megapixels back facing camera and a 0.3 mega-pixels front camera.

Motorola decided to design the Motorola ELECTRIFY M using a powerful 1500 MHz Dual-Core processor and 1 GB RAM memory. This cellphone comes with an 8 GB quite big internal memory and a slot for an external memory card, allowing the user to install hundreds of games and applications without any problem.

Motorola made a great design job making this cellphone weight only 3.92 ounces. The Motorola ELECTRIFY M is quite a compact device, taking into account that it presents a 4.3 inches screen and it is only 4.85" long and 2.42 inches wide. This phone is thin, being just 0.34 inches thick.

Motorola packed the Motorola ELECTRIFY M with a good looking 4.3 inches display, and a 960 x 540 resolution, giving this cellphone a good graphic quality. Its display uses Super AMOLED Advanced capacitive technology, and is multi-touch enabled.

This phone has two cameras, an 8 megapixels back-facing camera and a 0.3 megapixels front facing camera. It is capable of shooting videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD). This camera also features a couple of useful characteristics like auto-focus, flash, HDR mode and geo tagging.

The Motorola ELECTRIFY M has a medium 2000 mAh Li-Ion replaceable battery, and although it may seem a little small, the Motorola ELECTRIFY M has a great battery life.

This phone features Wi-Fi connection (which it can provide to other devices as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE high speed data connection or 3G data connection, over EV-DO A technologies. This phone doesn't have a SIM card, because it's not a GSM phone and it can work with CDMA carriers.

This cellphone also features some interesting features like Bluetooth (provides communication with other bluetooth devices, computers, and accessories), GPS (Global Positioning System) and NFC, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

Motorola offers the Motorola ELECTRIFY M for just $ 100, which is an incredible price for comparing with similar cellphones. If you will use it mostly for social networks, you will definitely love this cellphone.
