13 July 2012 – The Motorola DROID RAZR and Sony Xperia P are both relatively high-end devices with similar specifications. Let us see how they stack up against one another.
While clearly larger at 130.7 x 68.9 x 7.1 mm, the DROID RAZR is much slimmer compared to the 122 x 59.5 x 10.5 mm Xperia P. Given its dimensions, the DROID RAZR is able to fit in a 4.3-inch screen, as opposed to the 4.0-inch display on the Xperia P. Regardless; the resolution on both devices is at 540 x 960 pixels.
Running underneath the DROID RAZR is a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, while the Xperia P clocks in at 1.0GHz dead with its dual-core chip. Given the same amount of 1GB RAM on both of them, you will not be able to notice any performance differences.
Note that while both smartphones offer 16GB of internal storage from the get go, you will not be able to expand it further on the Xperia P as it does not have a microSD slot.
The DROID RAZR is powered by a significantly larger 1780 mAh battery, while the Xperia P manages with a 1300 mAh equivalent.
Given their similar pricing and hardware specifications, the DROID RAZR has the advantage here, as it does things just a little better than the Xperia P, which fumbled in our eyes due to its lack of expandable memory.
