For the first time, Apple is about to lose the top dog spot at Verizon Wireless as Motorola Droid Razr Maxx has crossed iPhone 4S to become the top selling smartphone at the carrier for second quarter of 2012.
According to market analyst Anil Doradla, Motorola Droid Razr Maxx has outperformed Apple iPhone 4S at the big red in the quarter ending this month. Doradla explains Verizon's massive 4G LTE network campaign as a major reason behind the success of Droid Razr Maxx as iPhone 4S is not LTE compatible. The analyst also believes that the next iPhone, which is expected to 4G LTE compatible, will help Apple in regaining the top spot.
So far, Apple iPhone has defended its title successfully as the best selling smartphone on every U.S. carrier it landed on. Unfortunately, the success of fifth generation iPhone has been outmatched by an Android Phone this time. In case you are looking for an alternative to iPhone 4S at Verizon, this 4G smartphone is best option to consider for, especially now as the 32GB model of Droid Razr Maxx is selling for just $99 at Amazon Wireless.
Recently, Verizon slashed prices of the Droid Razr Maxx to $199. But Amazon Wireless has made buying this smartphone affordable. The $99 offer only stands for those who are ready to open a new line into Verizon Wireless network.
Motorola Droid Razr Maxx packs a 4.3-inch qHD display. The device has 1GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage with microSD card support up to 32GB. There is a 8-megapixel shooter at the back and 1.3-megapixel camera in the front. Another big deal in buying the Droid Razr Maxx is its monstrous 3,300 mAh battery which helped the smartphone in gaining a lot of positive review in terms of battery performance.
Motorola' bet has outperformed Apple at Verizon. However, at AT&T and Sprint, Apple iPhone 4S has been able to maintain its top position. On the other hand, Samsung's new flagship smartphone - the Galaxy S3 - is landing at both AT&T and Sprint this month. According to an estimate, the device has already gained 10 million preorders worldwide. It looks like the success of iPhone will be short-lived this time.
