The Razr M is supported the Google Play Store, which has enough games, books, movies and apps to rival the iTunes store (although lacks music in Australia). Browsing the store is simple, and the phone can easily sync any of your past media and app purchases if you're upgrading from another Android phone.

Droid Razr M review

Video and music playback quality is good, just what a media savvy customer should expect from a smartphone. We particularly liked Play Books. Perusing a sample of J.K. Rowling's "The Casual Vacancy," the page turns were fast and animated, like on an iPad or Kindle Fire.

Through the Play Store, there's support for Amazon's Kindle ecosystem, as well as a Widget for streaming from your Amazon MP3 collection. You can also download albums you own when you don't feel like streaming them.

Overall, it's a diverse, reliable set of media features. Also, since Google Play recently hit 25 billion downloads, its confirmed its place as a serious player in the smartphone app and media game.


Like any good Android phone, the Razr M uses Google Maps to help get you around town. It provides accurate data, and combined with Telstra's 4G service, we never lost our way when using it.

It's buoyed by Google Navigation, which provides turn by turn voice direction to to guide you around town and keep your eyes on the road.
