    Droid RAZR

    Android Market hit over 500,000 apps last October. If you can't find what you need with 500,000 apps, you're simply not looking hard enough.

    The advantages of Android over iOS are significant and many. The specific advantages of the RAZR over the iPhone 4S are at least as many. Here's my short, off the top of my head list:

    Better Screen
    The iPhone 4S has the same screen as the iPhone 4: a 3.5" IPS LCD screen made by LG. The RAZR uses a newer, better tech: sAMOLED. Basically, think of it like the difference between an LCD TV and an LED TV, because that's exactly what it is. The RAZR is not only 4.3" to the iPhone's 3.5" (night and day), but has more vivid colours and darker blacks. Watch Netflix on both and you be the judge.

    Cooler Form Factor
    Glass back and metal sides? A little "late 90s cool," don't you think? Despite it's 4.3" screen size, the RAZR disappears into my pocket due to it's 7.1mm thinness. No, seriously; I have to check to make sure it's still there half the time.

    4G LTE
    4G can suck battery life; that's true. So just turn it off when you're not using it. When you are using it, expect speeds from 5-10x faster than 3G. iPhone 5 may have the newer LTE chip that saps less battery (along with everyone else, including Moto), but for right now they won't even give you the option. RAZR has 3G only for battery life, 4G when you want the latest, next-gen mobile speed. I don't know about you, but I can manage my device all by myself and I don't need Daddy Apple slapping my hand away "for my own good." Check out this app (free) for an easy shortcut to the menu for switching modes:
    https://market.android.com/details?i...Gdmb3JyYXpyIl0.

    Better Radios
    Motorola invented the cell phone and still makes the best reception devices. iPhone uses a Qualcomm radio, like Moto, but Moto also uses their own proprietary ones so you get a nice edge.

    Expandable Memory
    Self explanatory, but I'll elaborate anyway. 16GB iPhone 4S: $199. 16GB RAZR: $199. Bump your iPhone up to 32GB: $100 more (and you must do it when you purchase only). Bump your RAZR up to 48GB? $30. Do it whenever. Bump your RAZR up to 80GB? ~$120. iPhone can't even do that. Their most is 64GB for $200 more (again, you must make this decision when you purchase).

    Android OS
    Widgets, live wallpapers, homescreen replacements, Swype, other keyboard options, app theming; the list goes on and on. Android is the modern OS. iOS is a UI from a 2002 Nokia dumphone. True story.

    Let's not even start on who started the patent war lawsuits and is trying to stifle all competition, thinking they have the sole rights to a capacitive, touchscreen phone with a rectangle screen. (That would be Apple, by the way.) This list of Android advantages could go on all day.

    Still not convinced? Then maybe you ought to get an iPhone. Here are its advantages:

    Better GPU
    If you do a lot of mobile gaming, the iPhone 4S has a slightly better GPU. Of course, the RAZR has the better processor and clock speed, so I doubt you could tell the difference; but it'll make you feel better about having to cover your iPhone in a case because the fragile back-glass shattered from a piece of sand in your pocket.

    Looks Better to Fellow Hipsters
    Have trendy friends who are really superficial and judge you by the gadgets you own (though not by the gadget's worth; just it's "cool factor")? The iPhone is the phone for you! Specs don' matter when it comes to impressing people whose opinions ought not matter in the first place.

    That's all of 'em.

    The iPhone 5 had better have LTE and a bigger screen or it will lose out to Android devices. Primary reasons why I went with the Bionic when I upgraded, rather than waiting for the 4s.

And this coming from a household that uses only macs. But never an Iphone.

    It's not how many apps, but the ones I use and love.

    Congrats on the Razr & I hope you enjoy it! But in the end, you have to choose what fits you best and functions/ performs like you want...

    fun fact:

    i was looking between the 2 phones too. but i picked RAZR coz it has bigger screen, friendlier market, more customizations, faster CPU, and thinner. and prettier too. true story. i played around a bit with both in costco.



    the next day i stopped by a different costco and they had a big sign "NEWEST BLACKBERRY!"..... so i thought, while waiting for my wife to pick up some beef, let me see what the fuzz is all about. i mean, last time i tried BB was 4-yr ago, and never saw the touchscreen (Torch?) version. so who knows, right?

    wrong. first i tried torch. smaller screen. clunky size. slow performance. ugly UI. ugh. then tried their latest n greatest, the 9900..... even smaller... err... can't even call that small. TINY screen. same ugly UI. ugly Maps app. small market. bulky design and heavy.
    though i have to say, typing on a real keyboard can be a little more comfortable. i do less mistakes.



    morale of the story: Apple and Android should stop fighting over which has better, nicer, smoother, prettier phones.


    ...ur gonna make BB feels worse.

    Seems I was right, according to this CNN story:

    Apple's subsidy makes iPhone a nightmare for carriers - Feb. 8, 2012

    Basically, the iPhone has a lot less profit for the carriers than other phones.

    VZW should just drop the iPhone. There were plenty of people that was signed up on the carrier pre-iPhone, and there will be a lot more afterwards. Use the money you are saving to get better phones and invest in better coverage/features (haha) than worrying about the apple fans.
    Don't get your tightie whities in a bunch if you don't like my humor or get offended when I skip putting smiley faces all over. IF you cannot handle online comments and get bent out of shape, go home.

    Droid Bionic and Droid 3
    #30
    Hulu is already available in the market. It on my bionic, droid 3 and droid 2. The razr is relatively new so its just a matter of the hulu app developers updating the hulu app to make it compatible with the razr. When netflix first came to android and hulu for that matter the apps were only compatible with a handful of phones. Give it time i would bet hulu will be compatible with the razr at some point. In the mean time for your hulu fix try 'video flash browser' in the market.
