Droid Razr M review

The Razr M has a camera that's merely acceptable. Although it sports 8 megapixel quality with an LED flash, just like what you'd find on premium smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S3 or the iPhone 5, the pictures it takes would never be mistaken for anything but mobile phone snaps.

The camera is speedy and can be accessed quickly from the home screen, so if you're quick on the draw you won't miss that perfect moment. It also has all the right features, like multi shot, panorama, manual exposure adjustment and high-contrast HDR shots. HDR consistently produced better quality images, but it shoots a little slower and makes image files that take up more space.

In optimal outdoor sunlight, the camera produced good, colorful shots. Inside, results were not as detailed, and HDR was necessary to produce a decent picture.

The Razr M has a 1080p camera that shoots decent quality videos. It was fun to play around with, and did its best work in strong outdoor lighting. The handset also features a front-facing 0.3 megapixel chat cam. It was functional, but if you're a real video chat enthusiast, this quality won't cut it.
