Motorola hopes to take a rumble from a multi-million selling iPhone 4S with a new flagship device, the Droid RAZR.
Arriving in Nov (pre-orders start Oct 27), a Droid RAZR will cost $299 with a two-year agreement and a explain to celebrity is that it’s a thinnest smartphone around. With 4G LTE connectivity and a punchy dual-core processor, here’s how a Droid RAZR stacks adult opposite Android rivals and, of course, a iPhone 4S.
The Droid RAZR is no slouch: it runs on a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM, a same as a Samsung Galaxy S II variants for both ATT and Sprint (the T-Mobile indication has a 1.5 dual-core chip), while a iPhone 4S has a 1GHz dual-core processor.
The Droid RAZR also has 1GB of RAM (again, like a Galaxy S II), while a iPhone 4S usually has 512MB of RAM.
The Droid RAZR has a Super AMOLED arrangement with qHD fortitude (960 by 540 pixels). By comparison, a “Retina display” on a iPhone 4S has a fortitude of 960 by 640 pixels. Still, a RAZR has a 4.3-inch screen, that is incomparable than a iPhone‘s 3.5-inch screen–that means that a RAZR still has a reduce pixel density.
The camera on a Droid RAZR is an 8-megapixel shooter with 1080p recording, on standard with a Galaxy S II line and a iPhone 4S, as good as a arriving Windows Phone 7 HTC Titan. The RAZR also has a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera for video calls, improved than a VGA front camera on a 4S, though reduction than a S II’s 2-megapixel video discuss camera.
Motorola unequivocally wants a Droid RAZR to surpass a competitors in slenderness. The association says a RAZR is a “world’s thinnest 4G LTE smartphone.” Indeed, a RAZR is really thin–7.1mm, to be precise. That’s thinner than a Droid Bionic (11mm), a HTC Thunderbolt (13mm), and a S II Epic 4G Touch (9.59mm). If we omit a RAZR‘s camera bulge, it’s also thinner than a iPhone 4S, that has a uniform density of 9.3mm.
The Motorola Droid RAZR is a plain further to Verizon’s Droid line-up, and it’s positively a thinnest 4G device. However, it’s not so skinny when it comes to price–at $299, it’s about $100 some-more than you’re used to profitable for a top-of-the-line smartphone. However, if we cruise that a RAZR comes with 32GB of storage (16GB built in, and an enclosed 16GB MicroSD card), afterwards it’s a same cost as a homogeneous iPhone 4S indication with 32GB of storage.
