well isn't it rather more amusing to see that all these Sony Fanboys can be proud of their neo V is the exterior looks of the phone. Seriously guys, this is a comparison between two SMARTphones, not handsomephones. If I want to make my GW exterior look awesome, i'll put a Barney Stinson sticker at the back of my phone and then problem solved. 3D graphics and processor speed are way better in GW than Neo V. HDMI port? Yea we gonna need that to view pictures and videos on our HDTV, but there's one tiny problem; IMAGE and VIDEO QUALITY of Neo V sucks!!! Just my opinion guys.
One aspect people tend to forget about phones is the ergonomics.
The NeoV is the more comfortable phone to hold in the hand, which counts for something in the long run.
The lack of an airgap between the screen's glass and the LCD matrix makes for better readability under stronger lighting conditions as well.
Lack of internal memory? Get a 32GB card and just Link2SD.
Neo V is a true fighter: great specs, gorgeous design, cool-looking Sony Ericsson UI, stunning screen, QWERTY keyboard which I love + HD camera and many more. Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo V rocks :-).
but samsung is not looking smart.....not looking special like Sony Ericsson Xperia phones........
neo v design looks terible. most people hate when it comes to thicker body. looks cheap too
been using neo v for a month now. yes it is compatible with almost all hd games available in the market, (i currently have asphalt 5, dead space) but the thing I hate is that it doesn't run as smooth as i have expected. it doesn't lag but i can notice that fps drops down after playing for quite some time. i saw a video on youtube of a Galaxy W playing dead space and damn it was smooth! wish i could have gotten the galaxy w instead.
so neo v wins.
why neo v? why not xperia arc s?
in my country galaxy W has almost the same price as arc s/play/pro . neo v has the same price as galaxy ace.
or xperia neo, it still cheaper than W but has better specs(camera) SE rocks . samsung overpriced.
im currently using neo V... there are no problem framerate while playing HD games such as modern combat 3, Shadowgun and backstab. no worries. 205 adreano GPU support high gaming peformance. no lags and smooth.
it would be better to put Galaxy W and Neo inside the ring. In Indonesia, both cost the same: 2.999.000 (USD$ 333). Neo V is slightly cheaper (2.749.000 = USD$ 305). But due to the lack of stock, you will need extra time to find Neo on the market.
Of course if you compare W and Neo, Neo has the advantages of better camera (8 MP exmor R). As for the design and body built, i prefer Neo than the so-plastic-look galaxy W.
where is the battery test?? it is said that galaxy W has more talk time (17h) compared to neo V (7h) in 2G mode.. actually when you use juice defender, your galaxy W will last for more than one day!
Lol at people saying the Neo is bad for gaming...
Neo V is the absolute winner here.
ofcourse i choose se neo because it has a way better design.by the way se phones usually have the best cameras.
bragger, 14 Feb 2012I dont understand the section that the Neo V wouldnt handle games very well? I have a couple o... moreYes, the comment on games is silly because the Neo has exactly the same internal hardware as the Xperia Play! Game developers specifically target the Xperia Play, therefore the Neo will also have a massive catalogue of games available.
The QWERTY keyboard on the Xperia Pro is also a great controller for emulator games.
I dont understand the section that the Neo V wouldnt handle games very well? I have a couple of cracking games on my Neo V and they all run smoothly. Grand Theft Auto, Mystique Chapter 3, Modern Combat, Pro Evo Soccer, N64, Snes, Megadrive, Amiga, PC, Mame to name a few emulators, again all run smoothly and no glitches so really they should of ran a couple of top notch games and see they would be identical, these tests i dont think i believe them!
For just a few bucks more than the Neo V you could also have an Xperia Pro with full hardware QWERTY keyboard, better camera, and better speakerphone than Neo. QWERTY rules!
3,5,7 years ago almost all people in almaty used nokia, now i see the rising trend of samsung, a bit boring, w is good but rather an ordinary model, se neo much better, samsung became a rubber stump company where some models compete each other like nokia ten years ago
Neo V wins!
It's not just all about the gaming features.
And i agree the Galaxy W looks BORING,i have seen it on stores. And Galaxy W's lightness make me feel that it is not real, like a play toy phone.
