Nokia Lumia 920 vs. Motorola Droid Razr M: From the Eyes of a Lady

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.… Read the rest

Motorola Droid Razr M: Razor Sharp Features and Performance

The Razr series was one of Moto’s most popular phones ever made, and we’re so glad they’re bringing the Razr back. The Droid Razr M is the latest entrant into the ever-expanding market of Android phones, but with the Moto Razr tag, would this phone be able to make a market in the nearly saturated market? Featuring an all aluminum casing with a Kevlar backplate, the look and feel of this phone sums up all things sturdy for sure. An edge to edge AMOLED display without bezels makes for an efficient use of space on the phone, giving users maximum screen space without really increasing the dimension of the phone unnecessarily. If you keep an iPhone 4S next to the Razr M, you will see that the latter has a much bigger screen.

The Razr M is equipped with a powerful 8MP camera that can also capture video at 1080p. The camera clicks quite sharp images without too many hassles, and is as good a camera as one can expect on a phone. Powered by an amazing 2000mAh battery, the Razr M can easily run for a day on light use, and up to 15 hours during heavy usage – which is quite a lot to expect from a touchscreen phone.

On the inside, the Razr M has a dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm processor for powerful processing speed, 1GB of RAM, and storage space of up to 8GB which can be expanded using a microSD card. In terms of connectivity, the phone is equipped with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, aGPS, GPS and even has 4G connectivity giving you absolutely fast browsing speed.

The Droid Razr M runs on Android 4.0 and does not feature the oh-so-many home pages that a typical Android phone lets you have. So no more confusion about which screen has your app’s shortcut – it’s clean and simple on the Razr M’s interface. The standard browser within the phone is not surprisingly Google Chrome, which does have its benefits of speedy browsing. And the best part, Motorola has announced that users can expect a Jelly Bean update in the future as well.… Read the rest
