You know... I told myself I would not waste my time arguing about this because of how absurd your comments are but, here goes:
RAZR VS ONE
540 x 960 < 1290X720
256ppi < 326ppi
1.2 TI OMAP < 1.5 S4 KRAIT
no NFC < yes NFC
no beats < Beats audio
Please stop wasting my time with this. Ive lost respect for your arguements they hold no weight. If your not gonna be humble and accept being corrected learn to be the bigger man and practice silence.
PS: the ATRIX HD is CURRENTLY the best Moto Handset, and no NFC support (forget beats audio) makes it NOT better than HTC. So dont even go there. This discussion is over.

why is this so hard for you to understand? the Razr was 2011's Flagship phone, the One is 2012's. the Razr wasn't relevant anymore when the One came out because it was over half a year old. i'm only comparing devices that directly compete with each other like the EVO 4G and the Droid X, the Razr and the Rezound, the One and the Razr HD. that's how this works.
95. 305Bucko (Posts: 506; Member since: 07 Aug 2011)
in your motorola brain thats how it works. in the real world HTC has a better phone out atm.
get over it.
96. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5685; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
no, i'm just staying fair. by your logic it would be okay for me to compare something like a Razr and a Thunderbolt together. that wouldn't be right and i don't have a Motorola brain, i'm just stating the truth, from generation to generation Motorola always prevails over HTC by having the more powerful handsets. that's just how it's been.
99. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4179; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
King is correct, you shouldn't be comparing a phone that came out in 2011 to one that came out in 2012. Because the Razr is now considered a mid-range because of the latest high-end offerings like the One X, Galaxy S III, etc. You shouldn't compare high-end to mid-range. The Razr is the last-gen flagship for Moto, and we shouldn't compare Moto's offering to anyone else's until they get their current gen flagship out, the Razr HD.

I know thats why I compared it to the Atrix at the end. My point with him is that he says "has NEVER beat Motorola in Specs"
They are always back to and forth one moment HTC is on top and the next moment Motorola is.
I only compared the RAZR because that was HTCs response to the RAZR and what beat them. But he wants to argue that December 31 of every year is when the winner is picked. It doesnt work that way this is a never ending race. Saying that HTC has never beat Moto is false.
103. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4179; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
Well, technically, HTC was never ahead of Moto in specs. All HTC has been ahead in is development, which just means they got their flagship out first. When you compare flagships, leaving release dates aside, Moto has been ahead of HTC. I love HTC, but Moto just typically releases better flagships specs wise. All HTC has been ahead in is development and overall design. Moto still makes some really good lookin handsets, but I just like HTC's design better.
105. 305Bucko (Posts: 506; Member since: 07 Aug 2011)
Berzerk, Your initial comment:
"That's true, the One series is better than Moto's line-up currently. But here's the thing, the One Series is HTC's flagships for the year. Moto hasn't gotten their flagship out yet. Yes, the One X and S beat the Razr, but the Razr is Moto's flagship for LAST year. When they get the Razr HD out, Moto will be on top of HTC again"
Not sure why you are disagreeing with your own comment, because it is the SAME thing Im trying to say. Since the future hasnt happened yet, currently HTC has better Specs. And just like you, I dont doubt that b4 X-mas Moto will pass them up but we cant talk about devices that are not yet released.
108. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4179; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
I'm not disagreeing with myself, my initial comment was based on release dates. HTC is ahead in development, they released their flagship for the year already at CES 2012, and Moto's current flagship the Razr was released in November of 2011, which will make it inferior to the One X for obvious reasons.
In my most recent one, I said "leaving release dates aside," which means that in perspective of the entire year, not just specific time-frames. In perspective of the entire year of 2011, Motorola had a better flagship than HTC, Razr vs. Rezound. However, in perspective of the year 2012, we can't compare until the Razr HD is released.
What me and King are trying to explain, is that in an *entire year's perspective* HTC has never been ahead in terms of specs for their flagships overall. There is no point in comparing a manufacturer's 2012 flagship (One X) to another manufacturer's 2011 flagship (Razr), because it isn't relevant anymore. You can't compare flagships until all of them are released for the year, so it makes no sense to compare the Razr to the One X. When the Razr HD comes out, it will most likely be ahead of the One X. Yes, HTC is ahead in development, but not in overall specs.
I'm not contradicting my previous comments, I'm just setting them on different perspectives, and that changes the outcome.
When talking about who got their flagship out first, HTC is the winner. When it comes to who had the best flagship for the entire year, Moto has been winning over HTC for a while. Don't compare a 2011 flagship to a 2012 flagship to see who's better, it makes no sense.
104. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5685; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
dude, if you had 7 months to come up with something to beat the Razr when there's better SoCs available then of course you're going to come out with something that can beat it.
i'm just saying when all the cards are played, when the fruits of everybody's labor for that year has been finished HTC doesn't have anything on the market that can beat a high-end Motorola. Bezerk gets this just fine, why can't you?
71. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
True agree.... But I love, like the Razor brands of Moto
, but is let down by specs.... just awaiting for there QC version S4 or the omap 4470....
Kingkourggi loves and prides his Motorola!
77. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5685; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
yeah, i mean i can agree that it would've been much better for Motorola to have gotten their 2012 act together 2 or 3 months ago so that they could be doing something bigger for the holidays (which we haven't ruled out yet) but i still think Motorola is doing relevant things now. we'll definitely affirm that when the Razr HD is announced.
67. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5685; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
dude, i'm talking about the freaking Snapdragon. Galaxy S II = SII, 2nd Generation Snapdragon = S2. this is exactly why i make that distinction.
73. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
O I'm talking about the international S2, and your. Talking about the state's S2, misundersstanding....
78. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5685; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
xD nonono, i mean the S2 processor by Qualcomm in phones like the Thunderbolt and the Droid Incredible 2. i wasn't talking about Samsung's second Galaxy phone at all.
44. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5685; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
don't forget the Atrix HD and the Photon Q, they match the One series and have a lighter UI.
47. 305Bucko (Posts: 506; Member since: 07 Aug 2011)
And both of these phones that you mentioned JUST came out. And like you said "they match", not beat, so in fact, they are catching up, which means they were behind HTC.
Not trying to fight just correcting your statement that HTC has never had better specs than Motorola.
49. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5685; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
it didn't need correcting, you just misunderstood it.
we don't compare last year's phones with this year's phones. it doesn't work like that. the Atrix HD and the Photon Q are Motorola's first next gen move in the US this year.
55. 305Bucko (Posts: 506; Member since: 07 Aug 2011)
Never is pretty clear, no misunderstanding there. If you refer to the original comment by "Troll" he was making a general statement (which I dont agree with) that took into account their history (not this year).
Again, not trying to fight here but perhaps if you werent generalizing you could've stated "this year" after "never".
BTW Atrix HD and Photon are NOT better than the ONE series

How could u not agree 4gb ram, now imagine browsing on your phone with 1gb Android resources take up around 600mb of ram on ics, leaving you around 300, on top if you install 5 to 10 apps your
left with 200mb ram, now try and open 2 tabs loading
4page's the phone starts to lag, then you need to go to task manager every 2 minutes to clear ram. What a joke.... with 4gb ram you wouldn't need to clear ram every few minutes, but 20minutes, don't you find that
62. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5685; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
alright, look guy, the best way to look at it is to look at each company's most relevant and powerful handset from year after year. 2010 was the Droid X for Motorola and then what? HTC's EVO? the Droid X was more powerful so NEXT, 2011 was the Rezound and the Razr, Razr is the winner, next, 2012 we have the One X and the Razr HD and i'm pretty sure they're going to be equal in terms of power so considering that evidence i still wouldn't say that HTC has beaten Motorola in terms of specs, don't get confused because companies don't release their phones right when another does.
i never said they were.
74. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
I believe and think both are on par.
79. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5685; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
well that kind of goes with what i said except for the few times that Moto opted to use an OMAP instead of a Snapdragon.
58. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
King Snapdragon mpq8064 is already available, still Motorola have not starting to push S4 @ S4pro let alone the high-end mpq chipsets.....!
63. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5685; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
oh i'm sorry, where is the HTC with that again?
53. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
Motorola is still catching up with Samsung and HTC.
43. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5685; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
the Droid X came out two months after the EVO 4G and was more powerful and Motorola's OMAP4 powered devices beat the pants off of HTC's bogged down S3 powered devices, heck even their Tegra II devices were more powerful than them and that was before the Razr. the Atrix HD and the Photon Q match HTC's entire high-end line-up.
sure there is but look more closely to figure out the standings. in terms of specs between the big boys it's always been HTC, Motorola, Samsung.
60. HäckeMáte (Posts: 168; Member since: 28 Feb 2012)
Is this even debatable? HTC has historically had better specs than MOTOROLA.
I can only think of 2 times that Motorola has beat HTC: 1) When the Droid X came out HTC took a while to respond. 2) When the RAZR came out, but the ONE series ended that quick.
The Atrix HD is playing catchup and the Photon Q,,, gimme a break, EVERY site out there clasifies it as a mid-grade. I mean the display is 540 x 960 @ 256 ppi (again catching up cant beat HTC)
61. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
+1 from me hackmate. True said......!
65. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5685; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
being that the instances you're talking about are with the flagship devices for 2010 and 2011 what more do you need? since that was the case when has HTC surpassed Motorola with phones from the same generation? the Ones came to the US like 7 months after the Razr came out. that's like comparing a Thunderbolt to a Razr.

King use changed ur Avatar, where's your, or what happened to your, kid, boyface Avatar.....the old one was better!

oh but this is the Slenderman! this will scare a bunch more people! xD
16. bubbadoes (Posts: 567; Member since: 03 May 2012)
whats so dfferent...about this phone....bionic.razr..razr maxx.droid hd...give or take one feafure for each phone but nothing epic
24. nyuvo (Posts: 72; Member since: 10 May 2012)
Well, what about the iPhone 1/3/3g or 4/4s? Same situation there mate and people seem to go crazy about it.
It's what a lot of companies do..
Just like Motorola in the old days with its original RAZR series of flip phones.. There were plenty of versions of the V3, released at later stages with better specs but almost the same look.
A 720p screen and s4 processor are leading tech in the industry right now. Yes some manufacturers have already got phones on the market with these internals but as of today it will be just as powerful as everything else (except for the Galaxy S3 which is slightly better in most aspects).
18. master0fursinz (Posts: 104; Member since: 26 Apr 2010)
i just want quad core 4gb ram 1080p hd display 4g 5 inch screen 16GB internal External Slot and a 3000 mAh Batt, 8MP+ cam with better light senors for better pictures.. not too much to ask for moto
HTC, Sammy and Apple are whoopin your tail in the camera area badly.
19. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4179; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
That is way too much to ask... 4 GB RAM? Really? 2 is enough for pretty decent multi-tasking and updates. Moto hasn't made plans for a phablet device, at least to my knowledge, and even if they did make one, having it at 1080p would be 440 ppi, which is much more than your eye can even see, and will just kill battery life and waste your graphics. The quad-core, 4G LTE, and 3000 mAH battery are feasible (though would probably be fairly thick); and yes Moto should improve their cameras. But the 4GB RAM and 1080p phablet is just out of reach, without making it a brick. Quit asking for more when what is offered now is quite enough.
We should keep the 2 GB RAM and A-15 processors with LTE for a while, because that is more than enough to be updated and run effortlessly for a few years. All that needs to be improved in the mobile industry are batteries and cameras. Though we're all still waiting for Sammy to come out with their SA+ HD display...
21. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5685; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
maybe you should go get yourself a Laptop buddy. xD
54. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
Nope laptop features on a phone would be incredible.
Nowadays everyone is looking and going after specs.
28. nyuvo (Posts: 72; Member since: 10 May 2012)
If you were using the full 4Gb of ram, how fast would your battery decrease?
And what is the point in having 1080p display when 720p is in the territory where you can't even see individual pixels... You are just going to end up using more battery than you need to by pushing all those extra pixels onto the screen.
36. 305Bucko (Posts: 506; Member since: 07 Aug 2011)
umm?? Youll be lucky to find a Laptop with those specs let alone a smartphone.
Its still 2012, you will probably see those specs in 2014, hopefully you are eligible for an upgrade then.
I do agree with the camera comment. It is currently the only thing holding Motorola back.
23. qwertypoor (Posts: 72; Member since: 09 Jun 2012)
Most likely come with just jb and big @%# battery might be surprised with something else
25. InspectorGadget80 (Posts: 7035; Member since: 26 Mar 2011)
What's the point? This phone is only made for verizon. We will never see a HUMUNGOUS battery life phone like this on any other carrier or region
56. roldefol (Posts: 3260; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
Samsung finally "made it" this year in the US because they offer their big flagship phone with the same specs and the same name (finally!) on all 4 carriers....and we didn't have to wait 6 months after it was released overseas. That says a lot about Samsung's clout in the market and with the carriers. Moto (and HTC) doesn't have that power yet, so instead we'll see variations of the same phone - Photon Q, Atrix HD, Razr HD. Just like last year's Atrix/Photon/Bionic triplets.
As long as Verizon owns the Razr brand in the US, Moto won't catch up to the Big Two. That said, if I were buying a phone this year, I'd want a Razr HD.

they were up the day they were posted here and i think the day after but after that they were taken down.
