Android "Phone Wars" episode 2

Last time we talked about the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the Motorola Atrix 2 and the HTC Rezound. And today i will be talking about the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the Motorola Droid razr maxx, and the HTC One X.

Right off the back of your head you will say, MOTOROLA, well yes, the Motorola Droid razr maxx has a lightning fast dual core processor with a speed of 1.2 GHz, which is the same as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. But it only comes with android 2.3 and is now update-able to android 4.0. Its biggest hit is battery life, it has a 3300 mAh Li-Ion batter that can last you 15.5 days on standby and 20+ hours of talk time. But it gives off the most radiation, compared to most phones. It gives off 1.45 W/kg of radiation, which will basically give you cancer really quick. it has a Super AMOLED screen and is equipped with the following sensors: (Accelerometer (motion sensor) / Proximity Sensor / Ambient Light Sensor). It has a 8.1 mega pixel camera that take hd video and pictures and has a 1.3 mega pixel camera on the front for video chat.

The Samsung is similar yet different to the Motorola droid razr maxx. it has a 5 mega pixel camera, 1750 mAh Li-Ion battery. but it wins out against the Motorola because it has 32 gb of storage rather than 12, and comes with android 4.0 and is upgradable to 4.1, has a 1.2 GHz processor. it gives off half the radiation and it has a gyroscopic sensor (stability sensor, it can tell in what position the phone is in) and a compass.

The HTC One X, the flagship phone for HTC. has a quad (4) core 1.5 ghz proccesor, comes with android 4.0, has a 8 mp camera, has 16 gb of storage capacity. it has the same sensors as the motorola. But you can not put in a micro SD card for extra space like the rest.

So, lets count the points

Motorola Droid Razr Maxx
1 point for speed, 2 points for battery life, 1 point for Supper AMOLED screen, 1 point for camera. -1 for radiation
Total: 4

Samsung Galaxy Nexus
1 point for speed, 1 point for android 4.0, 1 point for sensors, 1 point for storage. 1 point for android 4.1

2 points for speed, 1 point for camera, 1 point for storage, 1 point for android 4., 1 point for battery life.

The HTC vs. The Samsung, which will it be. well the Samsung has more space, more sensors, better android version. Android 4.1 project butter compensates for the speed loss so the Samsung Galaxy nexus is not so slow. The Samsung wins this one gys.

So the List

1. Samsung Galaxy Nexus
2. HTC One X
3. Motorola Droid Razr Maxx
4. HTC Rezound
5. Motorola Atrix 2

( want to tell me something, have a phone to suggest to put on the list, disagree with something, post a comment here, you don't need to log in, it can just be anonymous.)

Episode 3 will include the new Samsung galaxy S3 vs the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and the iPhone 4s. will the popular iPhone beat its biggest rival yet. Read in the next episode of Phone Wars.


  1. I liked the Motorola Razor Maxx well enough that I bought one. I love the long battery life and the large screen. Still discovering all the features of 'ice cream sandwich'. Not too concerned about the radiation, I already have a watch which is slightly radioactive.
