DROIDs will be DROIDs, right? Well, as we’ve come to see with Motorola’s set of DROID branded devices, they encompass a wide array of form factors – with each offering their own characteristic traits. Spitting out devices like no other, Motorola has blessed Verizon’s lineup very recently with venerable devices in the DROID 4 and DROID RAZR MAXX. On one hand, you have a device with a killer keyboard for messaging, while the other relies on its generous battery life to woe consumers, but ultimately there’s only one that’ll stand head above water in being regarded as today’s DROID of choice.
Initially, the two bear very similar designs with their tapered corners, which has been long established by the Motorola PHOTON 4G, but that’s where the similarities end as the DROID 4 is considerably thicker and heavier – to its credit though, it does pack one killer landscape style QWERTY keyboard. Thankfully, both are still extremely solid with their build quality, however, it’s the DROID RAZR MAXX’s premium choice of materials that enables it to stand out much more in instilling us that it’s a top-shelf smartphone. Not only is the DROID RAZR MAXX sleeker, but overall, it has this polished appeal that makes it the more favorable looking handset.
