Motorola compares its Droid Razr HD to Samsung’s Galaxy S III
Motorola is now directly attacking the Galaxy S III, claiming that you’d be wiser to choose the Droid Razr HD instead of Samsung’s smartphone.
First of all, according to an image (seen below) posted by Motorola on its official Facebook page, the Droid Razr HD offers 49% faster download speeds compared to the S III. I’m not sure why that is (if true), since both devices feature LTE, using the same Qualcomm internals.
Anyway. Motorola also reminds us – here – that the Razr HD offers up to 20% more battery life, and provides a higher grade of protection thanks to its Kevlar fiber back.
Launched by Verizon in October, alongside the Droid Razr Maxx HD, the Razr HD costs $199 at Verizon (on contract) – just like the Galaxy S III.
Of course, one of the important differences between the Galaxy S III and Motorola Razr HD is that Samsung’s handset – sold in more than 30 million units around the world – is available via all major US carriers, while Motorola’s is a Verizon-exclusive device. Still, it’s worth mentioning that Verizon has updated the Droid Rarz HD (and Razr Maxx HD) to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, while its Galaxy S III is still running Ice Cream Sandwich – despite the fact that AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile have already rolled out JB to their S III models.
