It’s an unlikely combination, some might say, that we’ve decided to compare. Even more so when we think of these newly launched smartphones from the ladies’ perspective. To compare Android with Windows Mobile from an OS aspect is worse than comparing apples with oranges, each side having its own staunch supporters and critics. So what do the ladies need more – wireless charging or just ultra sleek looks?
Tech Specs: In terms of processing power, both phones are well matched, equipped with a dual-core 1.5GHz processor and Adreno 225 GPU. While the Nokia Lumia boasts of a nascent version of Windows 8 Phone OS, which is expected to offer good performance and a host of features like Live Tile Information, Skydrive, sync capabilities using Office 365, an integrated social networking experience using the People hub, the Motorola Droid Razr M comes with Android 4.0 or Ice Cream Sandwich which has the pure Android experience to offer for complete mobillity, and can be upgraded to the latest Jelly Bean version too. This is one of the most significant factors to consider when picking sides, although ladies, don’t judge just yet. We think there are many other factors that might sway your mind to either side.
Dimensions: Now this one’s quite obvious – the Lumia handset does appear clunkier that the super sleek Moto Razr M, designed to be thinner and lighter than the former. However, the Lumia has a slightly bigger screen with PureMotion HD+ technology, measuring 4.5 inches, in comparison with the Razr M’s 4.3 inch AMOLED touch screen interface. Also, the Lumia’s screen offers a more vivid display, with a higher pixel density.
Camera: This is definitely quite the deciding factor as far as us ladies are concerned. And in this regards too, the Lumia 920 does not disappoint. Sporting a 8.7MP PureView camera which also has an LED flash letting us take pictures in low light conditions, it is far more advanced than the Razr M’s 8MP camera. Even in terms of front facing camera, the Lumia has a 1.2MP camera, as opposed to Razr M’s 0.3MP camera.
Battery: There is not much to compare in this category as both phones are powered by a 2000 mAh Li-ion battery. Nokia claims that its phone offers 10 hours of talk time, while Motorola claims its phone can last up to 24 hours on a single charge.
Storage: In terms of storage, the Lumia 920 has 32GB of internal storage space, while the Razr M has only 8GB of internal space. This means, for more data on the Moto phone, you will have to invest in a microSD card, which you might not need on the Nokia model, not unless you have a ton of music and photos to store.
