As we have been saying the other day, the rebranded Motorola’s Droid RAZR M with a new name Motorola Luge was planned to be debuted on August 28th and it did. Previously, when the rumors spread about a possible new phone from Motorola, the brows were raised in expectation of something new and spectacular, since mobile world is surprised every year by devices that are both new and amped up with new specs. However, the mystery curtain was drawn apart and a slight “hmm” was heard. And it is all because Verizon launched a smartphone that was just merely renamed. Few touches were added to the renamed Motorola Luge, but as it appears, they were not that significant as expected.

For example, unlike the Droid RAZR M, in the new Motorola Luge supports a 4G LTE connectivity and runs on Android 4.4.4. Kitkat along with upgraded front-facing camera from the previous 0.3-megapixel to the new 0.9-megapixel one which is great for selfie lovers. Plus, there are some new apps added to the device such as: Assistant and the mysterious“Moto Aware”.
The rest of the specs stay as before as in the old Motorola Droid Razr M. As a reminder, the specs of the phone include: 4.3-inch qHD display (covered with durable Gorilla Glass), Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.0, 8GB internal memory with possible micro SD expansion, 8-megapixel rear camera, non-removable 2,000 mAh battery and NFC support.
It would be interesting to see how the Motorola Luge will perform on the latest Android 4.4.4 Kitkat software. Other than few changes on the device, the main eye grabber could be its price. Motorola Luge will be sold for $299 at full retail or $199 with prepaid service from Verizon.
Frankly speaking, compared to other mobiles, the new Moto Luge doesn’t seem to be such a bad bargain for the price and given its features. Would you go for one?
