you guys do realize that Sony Xperia P is running at a higher resolution?
540 x 960
additional how can u compare 3 devices all of which are running at very different CPU frequencies?
Xperia P ---> 1.0 Ghz
Galaxy S2 ---> 1.2 Ghz
Galaxy Note ---> 1.4 Ghz
xperia p and s and u bad smart phone
samsung galaxy nexus and s2 is best smart phone
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...
from what i know samsungs exynos has modified instruction set and that's why cpu is sometimes faster (sammy hired some special company to do that), and whole soc is superb designed
The mistake Sony has made is ditching the SE Arc
styling. If they used the same body & put in a dual/quad
AnonD-52974, 02 May 2012Well there you have it fokes, get a galaxy!and pay more for a device made of plastic.
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
Go Sony!, 02 May 2012This will be a performance to price ratio battle. Sony taking baby steps. I just hope you'll d... moreI don't think it is all about performance to price. Many people want performance in a phone that is not too big. This phone is a great option for power in a smaller than flagship device.
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.
AnonD-52974, 02 May 2012Well there you have it fokes, get a galaxy!You referring to a Galaxy W, S2 ....
There are about 100 Galaxy models. Seems you are a fanboy who knows very little and contributes even less.
AnonD-52974, 02 May 2012Well there you have it fokes, get a galaxy!Yep, get a Galaxy with a lower resolution, crappier design, no NFC, un realistic screen, worse camera and for a higher price.
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!
The galaxy advanced has the same chip. Complete to that one.
This is not a super phone. Nit meant to be either .
AnonD-52974, 02 May 2012Well there you have it fokes, get a galaxy!Specially Galaxy Note
Novathor U8500 Mali-400MP1 single core GPU not Quad-core like Galaxy SII or Galaxy Note.
U8500 GPU configured with Mali-400MP1 (single core),
S2 Exynos 4210 has Mali-400MP4 (quad core)
