HOT RIM Or Droid? The Blackberry Z10 Vs. The Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX HD
Deciding between a Blackberry and an Android phone is usually a pretty easy decision. After all, Blackberrys are old fashioned with their physical keyboards and small screens, who wants one? But the newest Blackberry reincarnation, the Z10, is actually a pretty stunning looking device. There’s no physical keyboard, it’s slim, sleek and sexy; both are touch screen mobile phone.
But does it have the functionality to stand up against its Android competition? We wanted to know if this new Blackberry is really all it’s cracked up to be, so we decided to put it to the test. And what better way of testing it than putting it head to head against a great Android phone? The Android in question is Motorola’s Droid RAZR MAXX HD, and with a name like that, it’d better be good. If you want to know how these two models stand up against each other, how they compare and what their differences are, then you’d better keep reading…
What the Blackberry Z10 Does Better…
Alright, the Blackberry actually has some really nice features. It is the faster phone. It runs double the amount of RAM of the Droid, making it more responsive and better able to handle multi-tasking or running more than one process at a time. It also gets faster maximum data speeds, meaning you get quicker downloading and faster opening of web pages. The screen on the Blackberry is better quality. It has around ten per cent higher screen resolution as well as about ten per cent more PPI (pixels per inch), making the display brighter, crisper and clearer than that of the Droid. Finally, it comes in around ten per cent smaller and more than ten per cent lighter than the Motorola, making it that much more portable.
What the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX HD Can Do for You…
Of course, the Droid has some advantages of its own. It has the larger screen, for example, measuring in at 4.7 inches as opposed to 4.2 inches on the Z10. You also get a lot more internal storage on the Droid, which comes with 32 GB of internal memory versus 16 GB on the Z10. That means that you can store double the amount of music, videos, photos and data on your device. You get double the talk time per battery charge cycle on the Droid, which averages around 21 hours compared to just ten hours on the Z10. That results in a lot less battery charging for you. Finally, because the Droid is an Android phone, you get access to a lot more apps. The Android App Market has around seven times more available apps to download than the Blackberry App World, giving you that much more choice.
Which One Should I Get?
It’s a tough choice; they’re both pretty solidly built devices. However, we do have to choose, so in the end we’re going to go for the Motorola Droid. The bigger screen and better battery life as well as more internal storage, just really persuade us that the Droid is a better buy.
