Verizon has quietly repackaged one of our favorite little smartphones as its latest prepaid offering. The RAZR M released almost two years ago as a budget-friendly LTE handset and it’s now being rebranded as the Motorola Luge, with a $200 off-contract price tag. Maybe Verizon is trying to clear out its old inventory while marketing its new prepaid LTE services, because other than a name and software change, this handset is pretty much what the carrier released two Septembers ago.

That means prepaid customers will be treated to a 4.3-inch qHD display, a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage space, a 2,000mAh battery, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and Android 4.4 KitKat.

It’s hard to make a case for this device when comparing it Big Red’s 3G only $80 Moto G. However, if you absolutely, positively need to have LTE, the Motorola RAZR M Luge is one of Verizon’s cheaper prepaid options.
