Verizon Rebrands A Two Year Old Phone And Sells It For $199 – No We’re Not Kidding

Two years ago, Verizon and Motorola announced the DROID RAZR M. At the time, that was a pretty mid-range device. It had a small, qHD display with decent enough performance and pretty good battery life. I actually considered buying it a short time after it came out. So why are we talking about it? Because it’s back, sort of.

The Motorola Luge, which has just launched today on Verizon’s prepaid lineup is quite literally the DROID RAZR M with a new name. The phone carries the same software, specs, and comes with no design tweaks. Those specs include a 4.3″ inch qHD display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8MP rear camera, 2,000 mAh battery, Android 4.4.2, and 8GB of internal storage. Full price this phone is $299 and with a prepaid plan you can knock $100 off of that to bring it down to $199. While this isn’t a great option, the phone does run near stock Android with a few Motorola and Verizon tweaks.
