Re: razr v3 or v551
- lighter and thinner
- slightly larger screen
- better sound quality?
- better camera (RAZR awful)
- easier to press the keys
- EDGE is faster (more below)
- battery life
I ran data transfer speed tests. Using the built-in browser and email clients in the phones, they performed the same, probably because latency dominates. Then I ran some tests using both phones as modems for my laptop. The v551 was about 50% faster, even though the specs state 3 times faster.
Moving on to the subjective level, I like the RAZR better. But being an engineer, it's hard to keep the RAZR given that the v551 has a much better camera, it is quite a bit faster transfering sizable chunks of data and it's easier to press the keys.
The new RAZR V3x is probably the answer, but it isn't out yet. Plus it will probably be very expensive right after its launch.
So I'll probably keep the RAZR but the v551 is a better value.
Hope that helps.
