Motorola RAZR v HTC Sensation XL
Skinniness is everything these days in the world of smartphones. It's time to compare two slim but powerful devices to see what exactly they pack into their diminutive frames: The Motorola RAZR and the HTC Sensation XL.
The Motorola RAZR has a 4.3 inch screen with a 960 x 540 resolution, meaning watching videos or looking at photos is a crisp, clear and enjoyable experience. And if you like to capture moments on the go (and who doesn't?) then the powerful 8 megapixel camera with 1080p video recording will suit you perfectly. There is a front-facing camera too, for when you want to make video calls.
The Motorola RAZR runs the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, but is also compatible with the new Android Ice Cream Sandwich.
Not only does it offer the latest features of the Android operating system, but a range of features that have been developed by Motorola specifically for its own handsets.
MotoCast is a Motorola application that enables you to wirelessly stream content – music, videos, photographs and documents – from up to five computers. Whatever the format, the RAZR and Motorola's MotoCast will convert it for use on the RAZR. No longer is there a need to regularly sync your phone and computer, do it only when you need wherever you are!
For the security conscious, you can rest assured that the Motorola RAZR has government-grade security encryption to make this perfect for work or personal use: should the device be lost or stolen, remote management and control of the phone is possible.
The Motorola RAZR runs on a 1.2GHz dual core processor and comes with a 1780mAh battery to ensure everything runs smoothly. http://www.clove.co.uk
The HTC Sensation XL is a little thicker than the Motorola, but is still a sleek 9.9mm. It has a massive 1.5GHz processor and a 1600mAh battery – a very powerful device indeed.
The 4.7 inch touch screen is scratch resistant and the phone is a durable device. It's been built with multimedia in mind, and comes with Beats Audio, an excellent sound system that delivers a professional quality listening experience. This sound system is complemented by the included customised Beats headset, which is automatically detected and delivers deep, round bass and crisp, clear voices that enable you to hear the music just the way the musicians intended.
And if you like recording yourself, you are able to do so in surround sound thanks to Beats Audio and the inclusion of two microphones, which also enable you to eliminate any unwanted background noise.
There's an 8 megapixel camera, great for capturing pictures at gigs and in clubs, and the ability to record high quality HD video.
With the large, crisp screen you will enjoy watching videos and surfing the internet on a smartphone like never before.
