Motorola DROID RAZR HD vs HTC One X: The Other Guys

By  | 

While the iPhone vs Android smartphone battle at the moment looks geared between iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3, there are other Android devices on the market that would love to take on the iPhone 5 as well. In particular, we’re talking about the HTC One X and the Motorola DROID RAZR HD which both boast specs to rival the Samsung Galaxy S3. However how do they stand up against each other? That’s what we’re here to find out.

Motorola DROID RAZR HD vs HTC One X

When it comes to the screen the Motorola DROID RAZR HD has a Super AMOLED of 4.7 inches with Gorilla Glass protection and a resolution of 1280 x 720. The HTC One X comes with a 4.7 inch display of Super IPS also with Gorilla Glass and resolution of 1280 x 720. However the display of the HTC One X is brighter than that of the Razr HD and it also has crisper images.

Both of the devices are powered by the Snapdragon S4 dual core 1.5GHz processor along with 1GB of RAM, so they are both equally matched in this department.

The HTC One X comes with a battery of 1800mAh and the Motorola DROID RAZR HD has a 2500mAh battery which is the more powerful of the two.

Both of the handsets feature an 8 megapixel camera on the back which comes with LED flash and autofocus. There is also a 1.3 megapixel camera on the front of the devices.

The Motorola DROID RAZR HD comes with 16GB of storage on board and you can expand it with SD card by another 32GB. The HTC One X meanwhile has 32GB but it lacks SD card support, which does let it down slightly.

The HTC One X weighs in at 4.6 ounces and is 0.36 inch in thickness. The Droid Razr HD is a hefty 5.15 ounces but it is thinner at 0.33 inch.

Both of these devices come with Android Ice Cream Sandwich with promised upgrades to Jelly Bean very soon. Given their great design, your final decision of which to go with will likely come down to just a few things – how important is battery life for you (RAZR), a better screen (HTC One X), choice of skin (Sense vs BLUR) and of course storage space (RAZR HD has the edge).
