The 10 Coolest Smartphones Of 2012


6. Motorola Razr M

Motorola staged its first major smartphone launch as a Google company this September when it introduced the Razr M, an Android-based phone that strikes a solid balance between lots of screen real estate and minimal bulk.

The Razr M measures only 4.3 inches, but it has an edge-to-edge display that makes it feel much bigger. According to Motorola, the screen on the Razr M is 40 percent larger than the screen on the iPhone 4S, despite the phone itself actually being smaller. The end result, Motorola says, is that users can actually type emails and browse the Web without having to squint.
