Two super-fancy 4G enabled devices like the Motorola Droid Razr and HTC Amaze will be finding their way onto many holiday lists this year, but which one should you choose? That depends on if you are upgrading on the Verizon network or T-Mobile. Droid Razr is only on Verizon and Amaze is only on T-Mobile. So coverage and carrier will help determine which to get, but then there are the features, ah, the amazing features. It may not be widely known yet, but the Amaze has a really great camera. Both devices have an eight megapixel shooter on the back, but the Amaze is one of the best around and can handily replace your point and shoot.
Amaze's 3.69mm lens and easy to use photo software are the Amaze's best feature. There are camera shortcut keys and zero shutter lag to go with its f2.2 sensor. An amateur photog's smartphone dream. It's biggest drawback, as with many mobile devices, is the battery. But, it does also have a near field communication chip if you are into apps like Google Wallet. Amaze comes with a 4.3-inch qHD super LCD display and Gorilla Glass covering. It's also got a micro-USB port and is $260 on contract with T-Mobile.
For about $40 more, you could get the thinnest smartphone, so called, the Droid Razr. That $40 would be well spent because the Droid Razr is one of the best phones of the year and a true iPhone rival. It's also got a 4.3-inch screen, but it's of the Super AMOLED variety, Samsung style. It comes with an eight megapixel shooter, 16 gigabytes of built in storage and is made with Kevlar on the back so you don't crush the super thin design when it's in your pocket. It will also be one of the first devices to get the Android 4.0 update when it comes out. These are two premium devices, so you can't go wrong with either one. If you have the means to afford either of these devices, spend the extra couple bucks and grab a Razr. Tell us in the comments if you've ever had a Droid or HTC phone before.
