One manufacturer who has been very active in the Smartphone boom of recent days is Motorola. The brand which has a very well established name for itself in the global mobile handset industry is making rapid strides in the Smartphone segment. Today we compare and contrast two of Motorola's Smartphone models that you could soon set your hands on. The models are Motorola XT 531 and Motorola MT 870.
But the display size is different as MT 870 has a larger 4 inch screen as compared to the 3.5 inches of Motorola XT 531. The larger screen size helps the MT 870 to offer greater video playback clarity and good visual experiences.
On the multimedia and entertainment specs, both the new Motorola phones will not be anywhere near disappointment as they both offer multi format video and audio player software that will provide playback of even high definition h263 and h264 video formats. But the interesting fact to note here is that Motorola XT 531 has an FM radio whereas MT 870 does not. They both have a 3.5 mm universal audio jack in common.
On the camera section it is MT 870 that scores with a powerful 8 Mega pixel camera that offers high definition video recording in comparison to the 5 mega pixel of XT 531. Both the phones have a front VGA camera that enables them to facilitate video calling on high speed 3G networks.
On the communication and connectivity side both XT 531 and MT 870 offer 3G, Wi-Fi, GPRS and EDGE internet connectivity as well as USB and Bluetooth connectivity options.
Both have good battery backup and come with expandable memory slots for expansion up to 16 GB of memory via Micro SD cards.
The pricing and release date of Motorola XT 531 and Motorola MT 870 are yet to be finalised but as the demand grows for Smartphones we don't expect Motorola to delay them by too much.
