Soon after Apple released iPhone 4 in US, Motorola brought up the new Android smartphone - Droid X as a rival to iPhone 4. Now with the international launch of iPhone 4, more and more iPhone 4 smartphones are available on market for immediate sales. If you locate in Australia, you may notice that iPhone 4 is available in local stores from the morning of July 30, 2010. Which smartphone would you choose? Before buying a new smartphone, we shall have a look at the comparison: iPhone 4 vs Droid X.
The Droid X offers a dual-flash and 8-megapixel camera and record 720p HD video. While iPhone 4 with 5MP camera also records 720p videos. The Droid X has a 4.3-inch screen with 854x480, while iPhone 4 has a smaller screen at 3.5-inch but a higher display resolution at 960x640. iPhone 4 could be one of the slimmest smarphones with so much functionalities.
Even though the iOS 4 in iPhone 4 is different from Google Android in the Droid X, both operating systems support multitasking and extensive app stores. It is difficult to say which OS is better. The Droid X is attached to Verizon, and iPhone 4 with AT&T in US and Vodafone in UK and Australia. There might be slight price differences among network service providers.
It is necessary to compare the storage of Droid X to iPhone 4, as we would use the camera for HD recording. iPhone 4 with 16GB is $200, which is the same price for Motorola Droid X with 8GB built-in storage and 16GB memory card. For 32GB iPhone 4, the price is $300. A 32GB memory card is needed to increase storage in the Droid X.
