Choosing between a Motorola and an iPhone may seem like a no brainer, after all, Motorola haven’t made anything good since the flip phone, right? But the new Motorola RAZR MAXX HD might be about to change your mind.
Sure, even the name is vaguely reminiscent of something that should be a flip phone, but the RAZR MAXX HD is a powerhouse of a phone.
We pitted it against the iPhone 4s to see how it would fare, and it did us proud. Maybe it’s about time you jumped off the Apple bandwagon and flipped to a Motorola.
Check out exactly why the RAZR MAXX HD made us drool…
What the MAXX Has Got (that the iPhone hasn’t…)
First, we’ve got to talk about speed. The Motorola RAZR MAXX HD is lightning fast, as it should be with these specs. It’s running a 1500 MHz processor (the Apple comes with a tiny 800 MHz), making the RAZR MAXX significantly snappier and more responsive than the iPhone. The max data speeds are around forty per cent faster too, meaning you get quicker downloads and speedier web page loading.
You get double the RAM, which also helps with responsiveness, but also makes the phone better at handling multiple tasks at the same time.
This is a huge bonus, because like most Android phones, the MAXX is capable of running different applications at exactly the same time, meaning you can web browse and talk on Skype without losing your connection. Apple phones have never been able to handle this right.
At 4.7 inches, the MAXX’s screen is larger than the iPhone’s (3.5 inches). And what a screen it is, a Super AMOLED screen, as compared to the iPhone’s old fashioned LCD screen, you get brighter, better colours and picture quality. Plus, the screen has fifty per cent better resolution too. Pictures on the MAXX HD are stunning, and reading anything from email to web pages is simply a better experience than on the iPhone.
What the iPhone’s Got…
In comparison, the iPhone really doesn’t have that much to offer. It can come with more internal storage, depending on the model you buy. The maximum storage for an iPhone is 64 GB, as compared to the RAZR’s 32 GB, which could mean double the amount of pictures and videos on your phone.
The screen does have a higher PPI, which should mean a crisper picture, but since that picture is being displayed on a regular LCD screen it’s still not as good as the RAZR. And the iPhone is around ten per cent smaller and lighter than the RAZR, but that really isn’t that much.
So Motorola Takes It?
In a word, yes. The faster phone with the better screen wins, it’s as simple as that.
Add to that the ease and adaptability of the Android operating system, and we’ve got a clear winner. The iPhone 4s just can’t stand up to the onslaught of the Motorola RAZR MAXX HD.
So give up your Apple, and get yourself a Motorola, they don’t just make flip phones anymore…
