The Samsung Galaxy S3 was arguably the most hyped Android smartphone of the year, with rumors running from as far back as October 2011. Now that Samsung has gone ahead and squashed these speculations by officially unveiling the specs, some fans can’t help but feel disappointed.
Samsung Galaxy S3 vs Motorola DROID RAZR HD
There’s no doubt that it stands alongside the most powerful Android smartphone on the market right now, the HTC One X, but the absence of the rumored 12-megapixel rear camera, 2GB RAM and ‘Plus’ display has prevented it from being a huge step above the rest. In fact, many folks have criticized it for being no more than an incremental upgrade and taken aim at its somewhat questionable exterior design cues and choice of materials.
If you’re like me and underwhelmed by Samsung Galaxy S3, the next question that comes to mind is what the next best upcoming smartphone tipped for 2012? The answer is the Motorola DROID RAZR HD.
The upcoming Droid RAZR HD smartphone is shaping up to be a heavyweight in the smartphone arena. Adding further to this is that most of the intel about it appears to be reliable (leaked images, benchmarks purportedly by Motorola employees, EXIF data) compared to the ‘pen to paper’ rumors of the Samsung Galaxy S3 specs.
Now if you’re late to the party and are not sure what the Motorola DROID RAZR HD is all about, here is a quick refresher of the circulating rumors: Motorola DROID RAZR HD MAXX exterior styling, larger 4.7-inch HD display without any physical button up front (utilizes Ice Cream Sandwich on-screen keys in order to keep overall phone dimensions in check), 13-megapixel rear camera and that juicy 3,300mAh battery which has made the RAZR MAXX so popular.
If all rumors serve true and the Motorola DROID RAZR HD lives up to these speculations, would you pick it over the Samsung Galaxy S3? Sound off in the comments below.
