Droid 4 Vs Droid RAZR: Ultimate specs comparison for Verizon buyers

We have just informed you about the possibility of a white Motorola Droid RAZR coming to Verizon in the near future, but now we switch our focus to the rumored Droid 4 handset. It looks like it is definitely on the way much to everyone’s surprise, but how does the handset fair against Verizon’s other Droid handsets?

If you didn’t see our initial report on the Droid 4, we can tell you that the handset is rumored for release on December 8, the same date that the highly anticipated Galaxy Nexus may also show its face on Big Red. From pictures of the device that have already leaked, the Droid 4 is looking like it will have significant similarities to the Droid RAZR, but will come equipped with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard of course – still an essential factor for many business-conscious consumers.

Thanks to a useful specs comparison flyer that Droid-Life has got their hands on, we’re pleased to say that the Droid 4 is looking like a very strong alternative to the Galaxy Nexus and Droid RAZR on Verizon. Key specs includea 1.2Ghz dual-core processor, a 4.0-inch qHD display, a 5-row slide out QWERTY keyboard with backlit keys, 1GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel camera and 4G LTE connectivity as well – a big plus.

The Droid 4 will ship with Android Gingerbread, but you can bet that the handset will definitely get an upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich next year, just like the Droid RAZR. If you are looking for the decisive factor in choosing between the RAZR and Droid 4, you just need to basically ask yourself if you prefer a virtual or physical keyboard, as the hardware specs are largely the same between the two.

The RAZR also comes with a bigger display (4.3-inch), but the Droid 4 will come with a slightly bigger battery capacity (1785 mAh). Hopefully Motorola will make this official this week at some point. If you are now interested in this handset, let us know how your thought process is going. Is the slide-out keyboard on the Droid 4 a big incentive for you?

It’s nice to see a high-end smart phone come out with a physical QWERTY keyboard. Back when touchscreens started becoming common place I told myself that I would always stick with a physical keyboard because of the tactile feed back I get from individual buttons. Christmas of last year I received a Motorola Droid X and have become quite skilled in texting with a virtual keyboard. I’m now a touchscreen only kind of guy but my former self is happy to see a top notch smartphone with a physical keyboard.
