By Tan Ming Sin
14 March 2012 – At CES 2012, Motorola announced two Droid handsets - the Motorola Droid 4 and the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx. Let's take a look at both of them, and see what the differences are.
From the exterior, both the devices have a cutting-edge look which makes them look very similar. They are pre-installed with 1.2GHz dual-core processors running on Android 2.3.5, Gingerbread. They are also using the same PowerVR SGX540 Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). Both devices support 8-megapixels for the main camera; capable of 1080p video recording, and 1.3-megapixels for front-camera. The last similarity is that they are both only available in black color.
The main difference between the Motorola Droid 4 and the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx is that the Motorola Droid 4 comes with a QWERTY keypad while the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx is fully touchscreen.
The Motorola Droid 4 has a smaller display compare to the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx (4.0-inch vs 4.3-inch). However, since both of them are offering the same 540x960 pixels, the Motorola Droid 4 has higher pixel density compare to the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx (~275ppi vs ~256ppi).
On the other hand, the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx offers a 30% slimmer chassis compare to Motorola Droid 4 (9mm vs 12.9mm). It is also 19% lighter than the Motorola Droid 4 (145grams vs 179grams). The display provided by the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx uses the Super AMOLED Advanced capacitive touchscreen while the Motorola Droid 4 uses TFT capacitive touchscreen.
The Motorola Droid Razr Maxx has a Li-Ion 3300 mAH battery while the Motorola Droid 4 uses a Li-Ion 1785 mAH battery. From the figures, it is obvious that the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx has the advantage.
There is still no price mentioned for either model, so we can’t compare which of the two will offer better value for your money. However, for users who prefer to use keypad for typing might want to go for the Motorola Droid 4. And for those who prefer slim and light smartphone can go for the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx.
