Galaxy Nexus Vs Droid RAZR: Winner of specs battle is?

 

By Posted 2 Nov 2011, 11:05

If you often have a hard time deciding which smartphones to buy, a visual specification comparison is a good place to start. We have one to show you now for the easily most anticipated Android handsets on the planet, the Galaxy Nexus and Droid Razr.

Both handsets will be landing on Verizon shortly as you’re well aware, with the Droid RAZR first to hit Verizon on November 10th. Sadly, the same cannot be said for the Galaxy Nexus, as we just told you recently that there’s still no solid US release date for the Ice Cream Sandwich handset, despite the fact that the handset will arrive in Europe on November 17.

With those formalities aside, let’s get down to the specs comparison, and courtesy of Droid-Life, we have a very useful specs chart which lists all the vital statistics for each device giving you a good insight as to whether the handset is the right choice for you or not.

There are some notable differences as you can imagine, and as you’ll see in the chart below, the HTC Rezound is also included as well for further comparison purposes since HTC’s new flagship handset will also arrive on Big Red soon. It’s the Rezound that has the ‘better’ (arguable) processor on paper with a dual-core 1.5Ghz Snapdragon S3 chip, but the Galaxy Nexus will have the much better display with a huge 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED screen and 1280 x 720 resolution.

The Galaxy Nexus will also come with Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 of course, whereas the Droid RAZR will ship with the latest version of Android Gingerbread 2.3.5, maybe even the Rezound too. However, if you treasure external memory on a physical format, you’ll be disappointed to hear that the Galaxy Nexus will not come with a MicroSD card, and it comes with just a 5 megapixel camera compared to the RAZR and Rezound which both ship with an 8 megapixel camera and external memory card support.

What factors will prove to be crucial for you? There’s also a look at what battery is contained in each smartphone too, so don’t forget that important aspect. Have you already decided which handset you are getting out of the three?

    Youre infographic is inaccurate

      You can’t just say something like that without backing your point. I am still torn between the Nexus (Because of the delayed release) and the Razr and I’d like to know what is inaccurate here so I can make a better decision

    Should add a “HDMI PORT” row (Razr has, Samsung does not, HTC ???)

    Also the Razr has Bluetooth 4.0 which has been confirmed by Motorola.

    To me, Rezound is the best of all three.

    • Mathelli

      Disagree. The battery on it is going to be terrible like most htc phones with high specs, and small batteries.

  • Droid King

    The rezound is a repackaged thunderbolt with beats audio. The nexus has no sd expansion but the ics is a way more refined OS, I played with razr yesterday and other than the Verizon bloatware its very impressive the screen resolution is like that of the Samsung infuse. Thou I know the specs I am still torn. I have a 32gb sd card that I do not want to give up yet I hate waiting 6/7 months for OS upgrades.
