If rumors prove true, Google’s mobile phone division, Motorola Mobility, is about to announce its first HD screen Verizon Android. So can Motorola’s as-yet unannounced Droid RAZR HD outstrip the king of smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S3?
Samsung Galaxy S3 vs Motorola DROID RAZR HD
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is available on all major US networks – AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile USA and Verizon Wireless, as well as smaller, regional networks. This multiple carrier advantage is getting millions of customers in the US alone.
Motorola’s Droid RAZR Maxx with Ice Cream Sandwich, exclusive to Verizon, has proven that Motorola can still trump the iPhone. BGR recently had reported that the RAZR Maxx was Verizon’s best seller, while the iPhone still tops the tree at Sprint, AT&T and regional carriers. So can the Droid RAZR HD follow suit with Big Red’s subscribers?
It’s thought that the RAZR HD will be similar to the Droid RAZR Maxx and to the original RAZR, but with a better display, a dual-core Qualcomm chip, better build and a 2,500mAh battery.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 in comparison, has a 4.8” Pentile HD AMOLED display, Ice Cream Sandwich, a 2,100mAh battery, a dual-core chip and two high end cameras.
Robert W Baird’s analyst William Power was reported by Barron’s as saying that the Samsung Galaxy S3 is still the “most recommended” smartphone on Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile USA. On Verizon, the RAZR Maxx is the second most recommended. So while the Motorola DROID RAZR HD may match the Samsung Galaxy S3 in terms of its processor, LTE connectivity, camera, HD resolution and Android ICS, it may have a tough time catching up to the Samsung Galaxy S3 which has already been set in the minds of consumers as the must-have Android smartphone of 2012.
