I love a good dogfight battle, and I know you do too.  This time around, I'm throwing the Google Nexus 4 and Motorola DROID RAZR HD together into the field.  The Nexus 4 packs a 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 4.7-inch HD display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, 2,100 mAh battery, HSPA+ (on T-Mobile and AT&T in the US), and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.  Verizon's Motorola DROID RAZR HD offers a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, 2,530 mAh battery, 4G LTE, and Android 4.1 with Motorola's UI.

It seems like every day involves a battle between Android phones, but there are a ton of options to choose from.  I love 4G LTE and Motorola's doing well in the design department, but the Nexus 4 offers a better specifications list and is priced incredibly well.  Which one is the better Android smartphone?  Part 1 of 2.
