Motorola skips Apple iPhone 5, compares Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD to Apple iPhone 4S
posted by Alan F. / Nov 11, 2012, 7:06 PM
Apple iPhone 4S instead of the newer Apple iPhone 5. You can tell that it is not the newer model in the ad because of the older 30 pin connector seen on the bottom of the phone, instead of the newer lightening connector. Also, the Apple iPhone 5 has the earphone jack on the bottom, which is missing from the phone used in the Facebook spot.
The truth is, the Apple iPhone 4S isn't necessarily the easier phone for the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD to compete with. Even though it has a smaller 1432 mAh cell than the 1440 battery in the Apple iPhone 5, the latter's LTE connectivity could give the older iPhone a slightly longer average talk time than the newer model.
Motorola certainly wasn't trying to fudge the ad by using the Apple iPhone 4S instead of the Apple iPhone 5. After all, the 32 hours talk time on the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD is longer than the talk time of the Apple iPhone 4S and Apple iPhone 5 added together. All we can think is that maybe the iPhone 4S was the only model available at the time of the photo shoot. Or perhaps Motorola, like everyone else in the country, had to wait a few weeks for the phone to be delivered.

its cool...personal opinions :) i havent had any iphones though but a lot of my cousins(we're a BIG family) have had both and I have had plenty of time to play with both...It just seemed to me that iOS 6 especially is tailor-made for iPhone 4s as it functions much better on the 4S...but then again thats my personal opinion

I guess if you really read into it, it really doesn't matter because as admitted in the article above the only two noticeable differences between the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5, respectively, are that the latter has a different cutting-edge connector that allows time travel and a revolutionary headphone jack ('on the bottom....'). I doubt marketing execs' at Motorola were as concerned with the triVial and miNute iNsiGniFiCant differences on essentially the same ole' iPhone as the writer of this article. Who, by the vay', forgot to mention that one sure definitive way to tell the two models apart is to look at the iPhone's Camera Gallery; if you see purple pictures then it's an iPhone 5 and if you see "No Service" or "2G" it's either an iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S.

That's a funny ad!... but maybe that's an iphone 4 in that image... because, you know... from 4 to 5 they´re the same... one is a rectangle with circular edges, the other has got a S in the name and the 5 is longer, but basically the same overpriced phone :p

maybe it doesnt matter which model it is and maybe they are saying the Maxx HD is simply better than the iphone as a whole!! whether new or old.........jus a thought

Every phone has their strengths and weaknesses... Moto just wanna position himself to be a high battery phone compares to other... Yup I confess moto is better on that, but still doesn't change my mind to pick iPhone tho :)

Yeah your right, I think phonearena is misunderstood the adv... I know that mate :) Moto pick iphone4/4s is that the combination of these two make themselves mainstream IDK... And moto is trying to say the battery is best among the mainstream phone and not just iPhone tho... I assume this is your thought, no? Lol

Well if it were me and my company i would be saying what they are saying, which is my battery is bigger than yours and last longer!.......And i would also be trying to promote my phone in every other catergory as well.........and while the maxx may not be better than iphone in every category you still have to point out WHAT is better than the competition in order to gain an advantage over them.......So personally I would just flat out say my phone is better than yours.......maybe just to spark a war between peoples thoughts and opinions on the products, FORCING them to gain more interest in both the Maxx HD and the Iphone 5 as well.......which will ultimately end up with them gaining more sales than usual.........Its No different from what Samsung and Apple is doing right now........Which is a big part of why Samsung has sold so many phones thus far.......not the main reason why......But a big part of the reason why...... :)
