The RAZR Returns

February 21st, 2012 Comments off

As a devout iPhone user, I’ve always thought of Android devices as being much bulkier than most smartphones, and the Droid RAZR is no different. Though it is thinner than most, it still retains the same bulky aspect as its predecessors. At first I wasn’t entirely sure where to go with this as I’ve only encountered a few Android devices before. So, seeing as this was the first time I’d actually gotten this involved with any kind of droid, I decided to compare the RAZR to my trusty iPhone 4.

The 4.3″ RAZR screen is impressive and provides a lot more room for surfing the web, checking e-mail or opening documents, but the iPhone’s display is still noticeably superior.  From a practical standpoint, the iPhone’s display is just fine for typical usage, but if you use your smartphone to look at documents or especially spreadsheets, the RAZR’s extra large screen is quite handy.
