Motorola Razr vs.Huawei Ascend P1S

By -

The smartphones tend to become larger and larger from the massive introduction of touch screens,contrary to what happened years ago when the trend was more miniaturization. In addition to large screens,users are very sensitive to design and tend to be viewed positively by thin clients and thin.

Precisely the thinness is one of the main claims of the two phones that we analyze in this comparison: theMotorola Razr and the Huawei Ascend S P1 . The thickness may seem a minor issue but the fact is that it is a very valued by users and contributes to the terminal looks more stylish and attractive , plus it reduces weight. In addition to its extreme thinness, these two phones boast a very tip sheet with the most advanced features.

The battle between these two smartphones is quite close, we analyze the differences in a comparison .

Design and Display

The external appearance is one of the most different between these phones. The  Huawei Ascend P1 Sopts for a simpler form , free of superfluous elements, and is available in pink, black or white. For its part, Motorola Razr has a more aggressive design with cutting straight lines futuristic and the whole is more ornate than his opponent. In this case the available colors are black and white . Note that theMotorola Razr is much more resistant because their housing is made of Kevlar , a material strong and light at once.

Let us highlight the issue of design: the thinness . Both manufacturers have used this argument to try to create a claim that would appeal to users. The Motorola Razr measured 7.1 mm and at the time was the world’s thinnest smartphone. But months after Huawei fulminated record with this  Huawei Ascend P1 Sthat measures just 6.7 millimeters thick. However it should be noted that neither has a regular profile, ie, that have a thicker area and this figure refers to the thinnest part.

The screen is another study in these two terminals, in fact it is striking that fitted exactly the same screen at the same resolution. This is a Super AMOLED panel of 4.3 inches, which develops a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels . This concentration will be of 256 pixels per inch, which ensures crisp, sharp images. In both cases the screen is covered by a sheet of glass resistant signature Gorilla Corning.

How could it be otherwise, the connections are a key aspect in a smartphone. The two systems have wireless Wi-Fi, 3G, GPS, Bluetooth and DLNA -standard multimedia files to other compatible devices.

The physical connections are also present and, in addition to the classic MicroUSB and minijack for headphones, the Motorola Razr equipped with a port microHDMI to launch a high definition signal to a TV or monitor. The  Huawei Ascend P1 S also allows you to view content in full HD on a monitor when using a special cable (MHL).

Camera and Multimedia

Again, things are tight in the section of the camera, although in this case the  Huawei Ascend S P1 is ahead because equips a backlight sensor that takes advantage of more light and results in sharper images. In both cases the resolution of the sensor is eight megapixels and is supported by several features such as LED flash, autofocus, digital zoom, geo-tagging, face detection, image stabilizerand several shooting modes. The  Huawei Ascend P1 S excels again because it allows the system to take pictures with HDR (High Dynamic Range) and LED flash is twofold.

As good high-end smartphones, the two can record video with resolution 1,920 x 1,080 pixels (full HD)at a frequency of 30 frames per second for the motion observed is natural. They also have a secondary camera for video calls in front of 1.3 megapixels.

The media profile is also an important point when playing various formats of audio, video or images. Both the Motorola Razr as the  Huawei Ascend P1 S offers support for formats used in mobile so no problems viewing videos or listening to music.

Processor, memory and operating system

In mobile of this size the power of its processors must be sufficient to run the system and applications smoothly. The  Huawei Ascend P1 S carries a chip a little more powerful, dual core at 1.5 GHzfrequency, and the Motorola Razr has a dual core processor at 1.2 gigahertz clock speed. Both are supported by a GB of RAM to ensure a smooth performance.

The internal memory also plays an important role because it depends on the number of files you can store. In this case the Motorola Razr will be advanced to equip a pool of 16 GB expandable with MicroSDThe  Huawei Ascend P1 S complies with 4 GB of capacity and also accept microSD of up to 32 GB

The two mobile bet on the mobile operating system Google as their platform header. Android is a free system that offers many advantages such as access to Google Play store with a catalog of over half a million songs. The Huawei Ascend S P1 is shipped with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the most current version at the time of submission. The Motorola Razr had to make do with Android 3.2 Gingerbread it was presented before, but recently Motorola has released an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich.

Autonomy and price

The two analyzed models have a battery of similar capacity – 1,800 milliamps for  Huawei Ascend P1 S and 1780 for Motorola Razr – yet it is impossible to compare the runtime because Huawei has not provided the necessary information.

The price is certainly a turning point when opting for a smartphone. In this case the Motorola Razr is older and therefore more affordable , can be purchased for about $ 350 in free format . The price of Huawei Ascend P1 S amounts to 430 euros without a contract with any operator.

As the input overtook l to battle has been very balanced, there are even identical sections as in the case of the screen. However, given the choice a winner, the  Huawei Ascend P1 S has some advantagesas it leaves the factory with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, your processor is a bit more powerfuland the sensor of your camera type is backlit . But especially notable for its extreme thinness of only 6.7 mm , after all thin is one of the main attractions of these models and here Huawei approved with flying colors. But the price plays against to be more expensive than the flagship of Motorola.
