With the release of Apple iPhone 4, the search for the iPhone Killer has again started. The fourth version of iPhone is faster and sleeker than earlier versions and again other cellphone manufacturer companies are forced to look for its alternative phone.
Motorola DROID, Android powered Smartphone, has been seen as the top contender of iPhone from the day of its launch. Motorola DROID X is the latest version and we are trying to do a comparison of the features offered by the two best phones in the mobile market.
|Apple iPhone 4
|Motorola DROID X
|4.5 x 2.3 x 0.37 inches
|5 x 2.6 x 0.4 inches
|Motorola DROID X is slightly bigger than iPhone 4
|3.5-inch display with 960×640 pixel resoltion
|4.3-inch display with 854×480 pixel resolution
|DROID X screen size is bigger than iPhone 4 but slightly less in resolution
|DROID is slightly heavy but that’s due to slightly bigger size.
|iOS4 Apple Proprietary
|Android 2.1 OS with MotoBlur technology
|iPhone OS comes with multitasking and great user interface but still it doesn’t support email-attachments and built-in photo editing feature. However these features are common in Android OS.
|iPhone 4 is finally capable of multitasking whereas it’s common in DROID earlier version phones also.
|16GB and 32GB options
|8GB internal memory and microSD card support up to 32 GB
|DROID maximum memory support is 40GB. Also iPhone 4 lacks a memory expansion slot.
|5 MP camera with LED flash
|8 MP camera with Dual LED flash, auto focus and image editing tools
|DROID is certainly the winner in this category
|iPhone 4 comes with a VGA camera for video conferencing
|DROID doesn’t have a video call camera
|iPhone 4 is the phone to go if you use video conferencing calls
|Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, HDMI and GPS
|Bluetooth 1.5, Wi-Fi, USB 2.0, HDMI and GPS
|Both offers similar features
|iPhone 4 battery offers 7 hours of 3G talk time
|DROID X offers 8 hours of talk time
|Both of them are packed with good power backup
|Games and Apps
|Apple’s App Store
|Apple’s App Store offers almost 5 times more games than Android Market but most widely used apps are easily found for both OS
|Offered through AT&T, 16GB@199 USD and 32GB@299USD
|Offered through Verizon Network at a price tag of 199 USD
|The prices are very competitive and it depends on the network provider you want to use
Both of the phones are new in market and user reviews will certainly come in few days. However we have seen the reception issue already reported by iPhone 4 users but Droid X is almost similar to its earlier version. Personally, I would go for Droid X for it’s being more features packed than iPhone 4.
