Apple is soaking up all the adoration right now, but the iPhone 5 will soon be doing battle with a host of competitors.
A serious contender is the Verizon Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD which hit stores just this week. The “Google-owned” phone has a 4.7”, nearly edge-to-edge screen and a massive battery. This phone is destined for greatness. So how will the iPhone 5 react to this newcomer? To find out, let’s check on the specs (chart at the bottom).
Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD vs iPhone 5
So, these figures tell us that the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD and the iPhone 5 have many likeness such as the upgraded HD displays over their predecessors, improved battery life, slim profiles, LTE support, 8MP shooters and the usage of unique materials for exterior styling.
But there are significant differences too. They run different OSs for one thing, and the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD has a bigger screen and different screen tech than the iPhone 5. Its AMOLED screen tech gives intense blacks and zinging colors, but it can look false and artificial next to the iPhone 5 IPS screen, which gives bright, yet natural whites.
The Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD battery is miles better than the iPhone 5, and there’s also the microSD option. If you’re not with Verizon, though, you can’t get a Maxx HD. You can, however, get the iPhone 5 from AT&T, Verizon or Sprint.
The MAXX HD rivals the iPhone 5 in lots of ways – it’s light, thin and uses high-end materials – Kevlar – for its exterior. And I have a feeling these features will push on the buttons of Verizon users who were contemplating getting the iPhone 5 or an Android device.
