It was a wild and memorable NFL season, and it was even more memorable for me thanks to the wonderful folks at Verizon. I’m writing you all to let you know that they were nice enough to grant Stripe Hype the opportunity to test its Droid RAZR M phone for the entire NFL season. I’ve tested the phone for the past six months now, and I must say I am very impressed with the performance and reliability of this phone. It’s withstood nearly everything I could throw at it.
To date, I have been using an iPhone 4, and have been using the iPhone series for the past 4 years. When I laid my hands on the RAZR, I was stunned by how small and compact it was, yet just how powerful this little fireball was.
The google play store made downloading all of the latest and greatest video games and applications a breeze. The screen displays games beautifully with vivid colors and perfect contrast. Playing games doesn’t eat up the battery either.
The screen size is bigger than what I thought it would be, yet it is lighter than the iPhone, and the screen is crystal clear and has a perfect brightness and contrast level.
The biggest reason I was excited to use this phone was to watch NFL games using the Verizon NFL app. It also allows me to watch the NFL Network anytime, anywhere, so I’m never in the dark on the latest NFL news. This is especially beneficial for a college student and National Guard grunt like me who is constantly away from home, but have plenty of breaks to check my phone. Now I have the ability to watch the NFL Network if I’m at a place that does not have a TV.
One might think a phone wouldn’t be capable of allowing you to stream live TV with very good quality, as most phones struggle to play quality video. That’s not the case with the RAZR. IT streams the NFL Network very well, and it doesn’t get laggy or choppy like every other phone I’ve ever had does when streaming video. This is do inlarge part to the phone utilizing Verizon’s 4G LTE network. Using the internet on this phone is as fast as any computer internet I’ve ever used, and pages load almost instantly, and videos and podcasts download quickly and without a hitch.
There are very few places the RAZR can’t pick up a signal, while I will often find spots my i phone simply can’t seem to find one. Whenever I’m in large buildings, it’s very hard for my i phone to pick up a consistent signal, while the RAZR is more reliable at keeping one, though the difference is only about one bar.
It’s been an amazing NFL season that has been even better because of this phone. I highly recommend this for anyone who strongly follows the NFL.
The apps work fast and flawlessly compared to that of the i phone. The RAZR almost never has an app crash, and twittter works notably faster on the RAZR than on my Iphone.
For anyone looking to upgrade their current phone, the RAZR has to be considered, as it is one of the best phones I’ve ever used, and yuo’d be doing yourself a disservice not to at least try one out.
