Conclusion: If you are looking at purchasing a high-end Android smartphone from Verizon, your choices are currently the Samsung Galaxy S III or the Motorola DROID RAZR HD (and RAZR MAXX HD ), as they offer large 720p HD displays, and are using the 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor for fast performance. The Galaxy S III may look more stylish and “flashy”, though its plastic construction does have a cheap feeling to it and doesn’t hold up well to abuse.
Pros: Excellent build quality, 4.7” Super AMOLED HD display, Good call quality
Cons: Camera quality should be better at this price, Not running Android Jelly Bean out of the box, Obnoxious push-pin required for SIM and microSD card access
Excerpt: Do you like the Droid Razr M, but think it can use a little more screen? Then you're in luck, because that's precisely what you get with the Motorola Droid Razr HD, a high-def update to last year's popular Droid Razr. The Razr HD ups the ante with a 4.7-inch, 720p display, and a large battery that's good for more than 14 hours of talk time.
Conclusion: The Droid Razr HD is a worthy addition to the Razr family and builds on all of the good aspects of last year’s Droid Razr while bringing a few extra goodies to the table. The compact, sleek design is as strong as it is good-looking, and though it has a large screen, it’s sized with regular sized hands in mind. Keeping a big screen phone from feeling too big is a challenge, and Motorola rose to it with aplomb.
Pros: Solid, sleek and comfortable design, Beautiful display, Good performance, Semi-rugged and durable, Runs stock Android with only minor tweaks
Cons: Camera isn’t impressive, Doesn’t ship with Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), Requires special tool to access microSD slot
Summary: Not only does the Droid RAZR HD from Motorola represent a step forward in the evolution of the RAZR series, it gives the Samsung Galaxy S III a run for its money in terms of performance, 4G speeds and certainly display quality. The Motorola also offers a sturdier design. However, the S III has more innovative sharing features and motion gestures, as well as a faster camera.
Conclusion: No doubt, the Motorola Droid RAZR on Verizon is one of the most unique and sexy phones we've seen. And despite its extreme thinness, it's strong with the help of a metal frame, Corning Gorilla Glass and a Kevlar back. But it's a wide phone, and I suggest that you fondle one in person unless you have large mitts. The phone might be too wide for comfort for those who have smaller to average size hands.
Pros: Super-slim, sexy and unique design. Great quality materials, excellent voice.
Cons: Non-removable battery and LTE weren't meant to be together.
Excerpt: Even though Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has been on the market for quite some time now, manufacturers still seem to be stuck making phones with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Case in point: the Motorola RAZR HD which ships with version 4.0.4. But while the pre-installed software does leave room for improvement, there’s no denying the fact that the Droid RAZR HD manages to wow as far as hardware is concerned.
