Verizon apparently started selling a ‘new’ device for the prepaid sector of the company, the Motorola Luge. It features a 4.3″ Super AMOLED qHD 960 x 540 screen, with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8MP rear camera and a 0.3 MP front shooter. It lands with 8GB of internal storage (minus OS) and offers an expandable SD card slot. The back is Kevlar and the device is water resistant.
Man, a lot of that sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Oh ya, it is the Motorola DROID Razr M. Literally, word for word. Seriously, if you compare the spec sheets of the DROID Razr M to the new Motorola Luge, everything reads identical minus the device name and a few missing lines from the ‘Web’ section.
Seems Verizon thought it would be cool to rebrand a device they already have and drop the price. I can’t say that I am all that mad about it though. The DROID Razr M will set a customer back $299 where as the Motorola Luge will only set you back $199. (That is with service) If you get technical though, the spec sheets do offer different Android OS versions though, but to the best of my knowledge, the Razr M is on Android 4.4.2 as of May-ish.
If a Droid Razr M was a device you were looking at for the prepaid side of things, you may as well save yourself $100 and get the Luge instead. Silly Verizon.
