Sony Xperia P caught in the wild, benchmarked too

Sony Xperia P caught in the wild, benchmarked too - read the full textGreek tech site DigitalLife got hold of an Xperia P ahead of its launch and decided to put it through a number of benchmarks to see what its chipset is made of. The ST-Ericsson U8500 chipset should, in theory, be quite similar to the Exynos 4210 found inside the Samsung Galaxy Note and Samsung...

you guys do realize that Sony Xperia P is running at a higher resolution?
540 x 960

Xperia P ---> 1.0 Ghz
Galaxy S2 ---> 1.2 Ghz
Galaxy Note ---> 1.4 Ghz

Who cares about performance? Phones today have more than enough performance - a 1GHz single core is good enough.

What matters power is POWER CONSUMPTION and BATTERY LIFE. The NovaThor is meant to be a very power-efficient chip; unfortunately Sony gimped the Xperia P with a small battery.

We shall have to wait and see the effect of the NovaThor SoC and WhiteMagic display in the full Xperia P review...

The mistake Sony has made is ditching the SE Arc
styling. If they used the same body & put in a dual/quad

Gsmarena shouldn't blindly blame sony for gpu driver issues..., the actual reason for lessor gpu performance is the single core MALI400 gpu in this st-ericsson processor as opposed to dual core in exynos

That is what I am after :)

To put it in perspective this phone is roughly the same size as an HTC One V. The One V has a smaller and lower pixel display with only a single core processor. Compare it with Samsung's best small devices the Galaxcy Ace 2 and Galaxcy S Advance and the Xperia P still comes out on top.
For power in a small size the Xperia P and Sola both look pretty good.
The Panasonic Eluga is probably the other device packing a lot into a smaller size. Both the Xperia P and Eluga may live and die on their battery tests though.

There are about 100 Galaxy models. Seems you are a fanboy who knows very little and contributes even less.

This will be a performance to price ratio battle. Sony taking baby steps. I just hope you'll destroy them with a surprise atomic device that will completely obliterate the competition and leave them with mouths hanging wide open in disbelief. DO. IT. SONY. MOBILE. NOW!
