Chart: Nexus 4 vs. DROID DNA vs. Galaxy Note 2 vs. RAZR MAXX HD


Verizon customers with upgrades or a craving for a new smartphone are going to have a tough decision to make as we head into the holiday shopping season. The HTC DROID DNA hits stores next week on the 21st, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 shouldn’t be far behind it on the 29th, and the DROID RAZR MAXX HD with its mega-battery is already available. Making matters even more complicated, you also can’t ignore Google’s new Nexus 4, even if it would take you off of Verizon and into the land of unlocked GSM phones.

So how do they stack up against each other? To hopefully help answer that question, the chart below was put together as a breakdown of all of the major specs, plus pricing. You should also check out our Galaxy Note 2 review and RAZR MAXX HD review while we work our reviews for both the DNA and Nexus 4. 

Well, have you decided?

    I chose to get the Droid DNA over the Note 2, RAZR MAXX and Nexus 4
    mainly because of the screens. The other two weren’t bad, but they weren’t as
    good as the 1080p display on the DNA. Screen appearance is important to me. For
    one, I use the DISH Remote Access app on my phone so that I can stream live TV
    through the Sling Adapter that I have connected to my receiver at home. The app
    is really useful when I can’t be at home to watch my shows, and having a
    display like this is fantastic. One of my DISH coworkers also bought a DNA and
    they are in love with it just as much as I am.


    The DNA really is not a Note 2 competitor, it is a S G SIII competitor. It is just a little taller than the SGSIII, and not wider or thicker.

    Awesome battery review for the DNA. Makes me even more excited for when my bundle of joy arrives next week!


  • New idea, going to strap a car battery and transformer to my back. No more battery worries.

  • The Razr Maxx HD can take 64GB SD cards.
