The new Sony Xperia S was released almost a year apart from competitor Samsung Galaxy S II, but their characteristics are very similar: both are Android devices with dual core processor and 4.3-inch screen. The main difference is the photographic industry on the latest Xperia is a 12 megapixels and the screen has 720p HD resolution.
The Japanese product is now the flagship of the house, like the Galaxy S II is Samsung, but being out so late must then face the competition from next-generation smartphone with quad-core processors. Note that the test is in favor of its dual core 1.5GHz CPU and GPU Adreno 220 has fought most of the smartphone now on the market.
But leaving aside the question CPU Japanese product also carries a very high density of pixels (720p) for its 4.3 inch screen with Bravia technology. Then as stated above its 12-megapixel camera can record video at 1080p, a major advantage since the majority of products on the market and those soon to be released, have an 8 megapixel camera. We compare the two products in the second part of the post.
- 4.3 inch screen at 720p (342ppi) improved by 4.3-inch WVGA resolution (217ppi)
- 12MP camera better than 8MP camera
- Scorpion 1.5GHz processor, dual core 1.2GHz processor improved the Cortex-A9
- Standard door microHDMI best MHL door that requires an adapter
- Support of GLONASS in addition to A-GPS is not present in Samsung
- Better battery 1750mAh battery 1650mAh of GS2
Samsung Galaxy S II better than Sony Xperia S:
- Screen technology SuperAMOLED Plus with an excellent view of the Black
- Greater expandability with SD external storage
- Thickness of only 8.5mm 10.6mm of the best thickness of the Sony
- Weight less than 116g of 144, Sony
- Bluetooth 3.0 Bluetooth 2.1 better than
- Front camera better than Sony’s 2MP 1.3MP only
The conclusion does not lead to any winner by comparing the specifications on paper; they both have something the other lacks. When we have the opportunity MobileBlog perform a thorough test of performance on the field, including a video recording capabilities and how the two processors react to the workload. On paper the Japanese model should have more autonomy with the bigger battery, but in contrast has a processor with more frequency.
