Apple iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S3 and Motorola DROID RAZR HD, all of the said smartphones are currently in the list of fastest mobile phones ever built, however, it would really be interesting to see where do these smartphones stand when compared to each other.
Design And Bodybuild
Apple iPhone 5 is a little taller and slimmer than the current iPhone 4S, it has a few minor design changes and a new Aluminum back cover instead of glass which we have seen before. An Aluminum back cover ensures durability and better signal perception.
Samsung Galaxy S3 is a little thicker and is noticeably taller and wider than the iPhone 5, however unlike the former, the S3 is made completely of plastic and at some point you might wonder if the phone is too plasticky or not.
Motorola DROID RAZR HD on the other hand has a Kevlar back cover(yes the same material Batman uses) and has about the same dimensions as the Samsung Galaxy S3. However, the diamond stripes at the back of the phone make the phone a real eye candy.
The Apple iPhone 5 now comes with a larger 4 inch display as opposed to the 3.5 inch displays of the earlier iPhones. The screen is equipped with retina display technology and has a resolution of 640 x 1136 pixels and 326 ppi pixel density.
Samsung Galaxy S3 features a monstrous display of 4.8 inches which is larger than most of the phones available in the marker. The Super AMOLED display of S3 has a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels and nearly 306 ppi pixel density.
As for Motorola DROID RAZR HD, it sports a 4.7 inch display which is also Super Amoled and comes with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels and 312 ppi pixel density.
The Apple iPhone 5 sports an Apple A6 processor making it the fastest iPhone ever. As a matter of fact, Apple claims that the Apple A6 processor is twice faster than the processor of iPad 2 and the iPhone 4S.
Samsung Galaxy S3 comes in two flavors, one is the international version which sports a Exynos 4412 Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A9 processor while the other one is the US 4G LTE compatible version which has a Qualcomm 1.5GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 processor.
Motorola DROID RAZR HD, on the other hand has been confirmed to have a Dual-core 1.5 GHz beating inside it.
Just like its predecessor, the Apple iPhone 5 also comes with 16/32/64 GB of internal storage and 1 GB RAM and just like any other Apple product, there is no support for microSD cards in iPhone 5 too.
Samsung Galaxy S3 is also available with 16/32/64 GB storage however, with support for microSD cards(up to 64 GB) and a RAM of 1 GB(US version) and 2GB( international version), it definitely has an upper hand.
As for Motorola DROID RAZR HD, it was a little disappointing that such a nice phone has only 12GB of internal memory and support for microSD card for only up to 32 GB. However, it does have 1 GB RAM which is more than enough.
Other Tech Specs
Apart from the tech specs discussed above, the Apple iPhone 5 also have 3G/4G LTE connectivity, Bluetooth v4.0, 8MP rear and 1.2 MP front camera, Li-Po 1440 mAh battery and iOS 6 right out of the box.
Samsung Galaxy S3 features 3G/4G LTE connectivity, NFC, Bluetooth v4.0, 8MP rear and 1.9 MP front camera, Li-Ion 2100 mAh battery and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the box.
Motorola DROID RAZR HD is also having similar tech specs with 3G/4G LTE connectivity, Bluetooth v4.0, 8MP rear and 1.3 MP front camera, Li-Ion 2530 mAh battery and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the box.
As already told earlier, Apple iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S3 and Motorola DROID RAZR HD, all are considered among the fastest smartphones available in the US, however, when it comes to buying we would definitely prefer you to choose Samsung Galaxy S3 over all these phones and there are many reasons to support that for instance NFC support, in case of international version Quad core processor, better internal memory and microSD card support, better front camera, bigger and better screen, and the list goes on.
