Droid Razr vs iPhone 4S: Verizon super-phone showdown


Motorola announced yesterday the super-thin and extra-durable Droid Razr smartphone. Armed with Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, a 4.3-inch super AMOLED display, and solid maximum battery life, the device has the potential to be one of the most popular handsets available on Verizon Wireless. But no phone can go without standing against Apple’s new iPhone 4S, which has already broken sales records less than a week after it officially went on sale. So, how does Motorola’s latest offering compare to Apple’s? Let’s break it down in this spec showdown.
