DROID RAZR HD MAXX vs Samsung Galaxy Note 2: Which Is Better?

By  | 

Motorola introduced the Droid Razr HD last week but if you happen to want a device with a larger battery and you don’t mind paying out more then there is also the Droid Razr Maxx HD to consider.

Motorola DROID RAZR HD (MAXX) vs Samsung Galaxy Note 2

The Maxx HD along with the Razr HD are said to be able to outpace other devices with similar specs thanks to their amazing features and battery life. But are you willing to upgrade your existing handset for a phone with just a bigger display? When the two handsets are on the shelves they will come with Android 4.0 ICS not Jelly Bean but they will get the update sometime in October. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 of course come with Jelly Bean preloaded.

Both of the Droids come with a 4.7 inch display, are powered by a 1.5GHz processor, have 1GB of RAM and an 8 megapixel camera. The Razr HD has a 2520mAh battery while the Maxx HD has the 3300mAh battery. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 trumps it with 2GB RAM, a 1.6GHz processor and a larger 5.5-inch display. While it matches the 8MP shooter, it falls slightly short on battery life (3,100mAh).

So the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 looks to have the better set of playing cards than the Motorola DROID RAZR HD MAXX overall. Furthermore, if the Galaxy Note 2 has to lose its quad-core processor in the US due to LTE compatibility, we can expect it to have at a minimum a similar processor to the RAZR since this also happens to be what the US Samsung Galaxy S3 is packing.

Do take not though that the Motoroal DROID RAZR HD phones are only going to be available on Verizon, while the Galaxy Note 2 is rumored to hit all 4 major US carriers just like its sibling the S3.
