Showdown: Galaxy Nexus vs Rezound vs Droid RAZR


With 2011 coming to a close, Android and so phone companies launch their secret tooth-candies, Samsung in collaboration with Google launching most awaited Galaxy Nexus, HTC closing in the race with HTC Rezound and last but not the least, Motorola coming up with Droid RAZR to complete the three-tiers.  So, let’s get ahead with the ultimate showdown of 2011.

First we start with the Moto Droid RAZR. Motorola first start producing premium phones under the name RAZR, and after much time, it picks up with the Droid RAZR.

The DROID RAZR by Motorola is the thinnest smartphone in the world at only 7.1 mm thick at its thinnest point (it does, however, have a “bump” on top that’s approximately 11.1mm thick.), beating Galaxy S II by a margin. It is powered by a OMAP 4430 SoC with dual 1.2 GHz ARM-Cortex A9 processor cores. Its 8 megapixel rear facing camera can record 1080p HD videos. It comes with 1 GB of RAM and runs version 2.3.5 of the Android OS. It though has a Super-Amoled layer on the display which still doesn’t disappoints on many matters, but due to the non-HD packing of the screen, the display-part quite disappoints.

Droid RAZR comes with the best build quality anyone can expect from a smartphone. Covered with diamond-cut aluminium, Gorilla glass display and a sheet of Kevlar. Yes, you heard it right, Kevlar. So much to satisfy the hyper smartphone nerds. All in all, it is a phone for people who are too lazy and drop their phones everywhere they go and it is a phone also for hardcore geeks when it comes to software part.

Moving on to HTC Rezound, the Taiwanese handset maker recently in a flurry, has released many new smartphones, largest of the herd, the HTC Rezound, releasing around 14th November, that was yesterday and is now available from Verizon Wireless for $300 on a two-year contract.

Onto the specs, HTC Rezound packs in a powerful 1.5-Ghz MSM8660 dual-core, paired with Adreno 220 GPU, 1GB of memory and 16GB of storage due to which any extreme stress on the hardware part is easy enough for the mighty dual cores to handle. HTC packs in its Sense 3.5 and Beats Audio, a reason why people relying on eye-candiness and audiophiles would hook up on this particular baby. The phone also satisfies the 8 megapixel camera bottom line enough for any gadget-freak to buy the Rezound.
