Motorola skips Apple iPhone 5, compares Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD to Apple iPhone 4S

0. phoneArena posted on 11 Nov 2012, 19:06

For a reason known only to those in charge of Motorola's marketing, the wholly owned Google subsidiary put up a Facebook ad showing its new Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD with an Apple iPhone 4S ; the question is, why not use the newer Apple iPhone 5 in the ad?...

It just goes to show that iPhone 5 is a debacle and the 4s is defintely a better phone despite being older but not even the 4S holds a candle to the MAXX HD...there I shortened the title for you :)

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

Razr Maxx HD, iPhone 5 lol only a difference of 3 letters.

Motorola doesn't need to be included its like saying the Apple iPhone 5.

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.

The metal-band design is more recognizable than the boring monochromatic slab of the 5. It still isn't a GOOD design, but just more recognizeable.

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 :)

I was not giving my personal opinion on the matter wendy friend i was just pointing out what Moto may be trying to "completely" say with this ad so maybe phone arena could see more than just one side of the coin :)

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...... :)

Probably didn't use the 5 because even with lte it gets significantly (some reports indicate almost twice)... better battery life than the 4/4S.

The amount of bias towards android is ridiculous. The Iphone 5 MIGHT have had better scores, so they compared it to the year old model.
