For some reason, Motorola thought it’s better to compare in an ad posted on its Facebook page on Saturday the Droid RAZR Maxx HD, a phone that was recently released on Verizon, with the iPhone 4S, a handset that hit stores about a year earlier.
The ad, hilarious by the way, reminds potential buyers about one of the main characteristics of this Android LTE device, its gigantic 3300mAh battery. The Droid RAZR Maxx HD has enough battery life to jump start an iPhone 4S that’s about to die, the clever ad says. But why isn’t Motorola comparing one of its new devices with the newest iPhone out there, the iPhone 5?
Just like the Droid RAZR Maxx HD, the iPhone 5 offers 4G LTE support, and has a much smaller battery, at 1440mAh, so a comparison between the two seems more logical. As for the iPhone 4S, the device has a 1432mAh battery and doesn’t offer 4G LTE support.
Even though the ad isn’t showing any scientific data, it’s more than obvious that the Droid RAZR Maxx HD has a battery ready to offer longer life to users than the old and new iPhone models. In fact, it has a bigger battery than most of its rivals.
As for more thorough tests, this isn’t the first time we see battery life compared, with the more recently performed tests looking at Google’s and Apple’s 2012 flagship devices, the Nexus 4 and the iPhone 5, respectively.
Droid RAZR Maxx HD owners, let us know how your battery fares? Does it meet your needs?

odd choice since the icrap 5 has a worse battery life
*iFail 5 :D
I guess they wanted to make sure people recognize what device that is, since most people who own an iPhone still have the 4/4S
I think it hits at the “are you tired of your 4S battery, upgrade to the Razr” as opposed to those that have already purchased a i5 who will not be purchasing a new phone any time soon.
I agree. These ads are targeted at 4s owners looking to upgrade rather than converting iPhone 5 owners. Not only this ad, but many ads comparing a current android phone with an iPhone use the 4s for that same reason.
Exactly what I was thinking. Why target consumers who already upgraded when you can target the ones who still have a choice.
Simple, more people own the 4S than the 5.
lets put in medical situation…Razr is like the DEFIBRILATOR and the iphone”X” is the patient who is DYING in the Emergency or Operation Room….tsk3.. =D
