Motorola Razr i vs LG Optimus G prompts choice time

The processor allows for the instant launching of the eight megapixel camera, which is capable of taking 10 shots in less than a second. At launch the handset will come running the Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, but will be upgraded to Android Jelly Bean in due course.
Corning Gorilla Glass will help protect the handsets display from the bumps and scratches that life can throw at it. The Motorola RAZR i will be available in a number of regions in black from next month, but rival handset maker LG has officially announced the upcoming LG Optimus G the company’s newest flagship smartphone.
This features a 4.7-inch True HD IPS Plus display with 1280 x 768 pixel resolution, while under the hood is a quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor clocked at 1.5GHz.
