You can almost feel the pain of the thumbs which have been abused in the making of this small comparison of the Motorola Droid 4 and the Samsung Captivate Glide. We are facing two of the very finest the Android platform has to offer in terms of QWERTY sliders and not only in that category to be honest with you here folks. The specs, pricing and overall setup will make the Motorola Droid 4 vs Samsung Captivate Glide a true QWERTY sliders Clash! So let’s see which might fit your needs better!
To kick it all off, I’ve decided to set up a small comparison table to give you fine readers a quick look at the main specifications of the two Android smartphones. Both the Motorola Droid 4 and Samsung Captivate Glide come in with some pretty high end specs, so if it’s performance you are looking for, you will most likely find everything your desire with these two devices. But always note, that most of the time specs are telling only half of the story, so keep on reading here!
Motorola Droid 4 vs Samsung Captivate Glide
As you can see, we are dealing with 2 full QWERTY sliders here. Both devices come in with 4 inch displays and although the processor on the Motorola Droid 4 might be a smudge faster than the one in the Samsung Captivate Glide, there are some other issues to consider.
To “overall it up”, the Motorola Droid 4 has on the Captivate Glide adds up, as the Droid 4 is noticeably heavier and bulkier than Samsung’s device. If you are looking for a sleek and stylish device, the Samsung Captivate Glide might just have you won in this regard. If size is an issue, the Korean manufacturer has the Droid beat here.
However, seeing that the 720p recording on the Samsung Captivate Glide is iffy, we will have to give the Droid what’s his.
The 8MP shooter on the Motorola Droid 4 will get you full HD recording going, also with the added storage space, you won’t have to consider buying additional micro SD cards to supplement your need for space.
The biggest two differences are, however, the connectivity and the pricing of the two devices. You can pick up the Samsung Captivate Glide for $149 on a 2 year contract with AT&T while the Motorola Droid 4 will probably go for $249 on Verizon.
The other major difference between the Motorola Droid 4 and the Samsung Captivate Glide is the connectivity, as the Droid 4 does come with 4G LTE while the Captivate Glide comes in only with HSPA+. If anything should make you choose one over the other, then these two should be your main concerns.
Also, I do think that the Droid 4 is built in typical Droid tradition, meaning that chances are good that the device could stop a bullet in terms of build quality.
Motorola Droid 4 Release Date
If the Samsung Captivate Glide is already available on AT&T (for a few months now), the Motorola Droid 4 release date hasn’t yet been disclosed but rumor (or rather leak) has it that February 2nd is the day.
Irrespective of your choice, you are faced with two brilliant devices which I gladly recommend. If you’re on a budget and don’t need 4G LTE speeds, the Samsung Captivate Glide is the clear winner.
However, if you want to enjoy doing some small recordings, browse Flash-heavy pages and don’t mind the extra $100, then go by all means for the Motorola Droid 4.
