Performance:

Chatterboxes out there will surely appreciate the calling quality performance with both smartphones, well, that’s because they’re nearly identical good. Thanks to their powerful earpieces, voices resonate with enough robust tones to make them easily heard on our end – and there is no background noise or static. Meanwhile, our callers are exposed to similar results as they’re greeted with clear and distinctive voices. Turning our attention to their speakerphones, they’re indeed powerful with their output, but there’s a subtle amount of crackling heard with the Rezound.

Additionally, signal strength is the same with both devices as they display an average amount of bars in high coverage areas. Still, it seems that 4G LTE penetration is rather weak indoors, which causes them to drop to 3G connectivity instead – albeit, it’s not a problem outdoors.

If we look at their spec sheets, one might be puzzled by the underwhelming 1,620 mAh battery packaged along with the HTC Rezound – whereas, the DROID RAZR is hiding away a larger 1,780 mAh one under its slim figure. Nonetheless, their battery life performance on an everyday basis seems to be similar to one another, as we’re able to get roughly 10 hours of juice on a single charge. However, it seems that the DROID RAZR’s tank is still left with a bit of juice left – though, it’s not that much. Despite that, they’re nothing stellar in this department, but rather, they’re vociferous in appetite and require constant charging.

Conclusion:

When you’re paying the same $299.99 price for each device with a 2-year contract, we’re left to meticulously find out which one is going to offer the most value for the buck to gather which is the superior one. As we’ve come to expect, both handsets have their own unique perks and characteristics that make them so beloved in the eyes of the consumer, but it's the Motorola DROID RAZR that’s able to impress us most. Sure we adore the HTC Rezound’s resounding 720p display and Beats Audio support, but it lacks that one element to exude the aura of being regarded as a benchmark device – rather, it’s merely your typical incremental step up device. In contrast, the Motorola DROID RAZR might not have a pixel crunching display, but instead, it’s able to capture our attention more thanks to the Super AMOLED panel it’s packing. Moreover, its design is truly unique on so many levels, which ultimately enables it to be an attention grabber right from the get-go.  Add in its Motorola Webtop functionality, smooth overall performance, and considerably premium feel, it embodies all of the lovable aspects of a phone that’s priced at the highest-end of the spectrum. Of course, your personal preference may vary, but we may assure you that you will not go wrong with any of the two.
