We unbox and take a first look at the Motorola RAZR M
The Motorola RAZR M is one of two new 4G phones from the Google-owned company that features a revamped user interface. We've just got our hands on the RAZR M, so let's unbox it and take a first look!The Australian retail package of the RAZR M. Note the Telstra branding -- the RAZR M is exclusively sold through Telstra in Australia.

Motorola includes a set of headphones, a USB cable, a AC adapter and a SIM eject tool in the box.
The SIM eject tool is just a piece of plastic that helps you push the micro-SIM in and out of the RAZR M. The packet details visual instructions.
There's plenty of documentation in the box, too.
Motorola says it pushed the screen as close as possible to the edge of the RAZR M in order to maximise the screen without compromising on physical size.
The rear of the RAZR M is coated in Kevlar fibre and has a splash-guard coating that makes it water-repellent.

Motorola says that the RAZR M's home screen delivers 95 per cent of the things people look for out of the box.
The company revamped the user interface of the RAZR M because it says users find Google's mobile operating system "fairly complex".
Among the new features are a quick settings menu and detailed instructions on how to use core functions, like adding home screen widgets.
The RAZR M comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich software, but Motorola has promised it will be updated to the latest 4.1 Jelly Bean version in "early 2013".
The RAZR M is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and has 1GB of RAM.
The RAZR M has an 8-megapixel camera with a single-LED flash.
The RAZR M has a gorilla glass screen.
The RAZR M has a microSD card slot for memory expansion. There's 8GB of memory built-in.
The headphone jack is located on the top.
The Motorola RAZR M will launch later this month for $600 outright, or $0 per month on Telstra's $60 Everyday Connect plan over 24 months.
