The Motorola Droid Razr M was announced alongside the DROID RAZR HD and MAXX HD which managed to take the spotlight away from the small Android. However it is available in stores ahead of its bigger brothers and it looks like we have underestimated the device. Receiving almost only praises from the numerous reviews of it so far, a popular question right now is how does Motorola’s sleeper hit stand up against the current bad boy of the Android world, the Samsung Galaxy S3? Let’s find out.
Verizon: Motorola DROID RAZR M vs Samsung Galaxy S3
The Motorola Droid Razr M will cost you $99.99 when you take it with a contract for two years. The Samsung Galaxy S3 on the other hand will cost you double this at $199.99. The Razr M does however have just 8 GB of internal storage and the Galaxy S3 has 16GB for its price tag.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 has the larger display at 4.8 inches and it is 3 inches wide, so you know you have your hands full. The Motorola Droid Razr M has a 4.3-inch display and has a weight difference of just half an ounce.
Both of the devices have superb display resolutions. The Samsung Galaxy S3 is 1280 x 720 pixels over its 4.8 inch display and the Razr M has 960 x 840 resolution with 326ppi. Both are AMOLED screens so you have deep colors and great blacks but it isn’t as bright in direct sunlight as are IPS displays like the iPhone 5 and HTC One X.
Both devices support 4G LTE and the speeds shouldn’t be any different on either device.
If you charge the handsets overnight then both batteries will give you a full day’s use. Over in normal use the battery on the Razr M will last longer and went 24 hours without needing to be charged. When used for navigation, the Samsung Galaxy S3 battery ran down, however it does get around 15 hours of normal use. The battery of the Razr M should last longer than the predicted 20 hours. However if you want to use the Galaxy S3 as your Sat Nav then make sure you have a car charger.
Both of the devices have great cameras once again, sitting on 8MP shooters.
One of the biggest differences between the two devices is the size. Therefore before you rush out and buy either handset based on the specs, you should hold it. The Samsung Galaxy S3 may seem like the more powerful of the duo and offer more features but at the expense of possibly being too bulky and needing to be charged more often than the Motorola DROID RAZR M.
