Shankar, 22 Oct 2012Hi Friends
Which phone is good...
1. Galaxy S Advance
2. Sony Xperia Sola
3. Sony Xperia... morehere is my take on mid range dual core android phones
ie under 20000rs the phones available are
1>LG optimus 2X (2X)
2>Samsung Galaxy S Advance(SGA)
3>Sony Xperia Sola
4>HTC Desire X
According to the release date
1>lg 2X has dual core nvedia tegra 2 processor
since this phone was a flagship device in its heyday it comes with more bells & whistles (like HDMI port,8mp camera,1080p recording & playback) when compared to rest of the competition even though the processor is old it trashes samsung galaxy s2 in 3d graphics & gaming benchmarks according to samrtbench 2011games, it even has ips lcd which is found in high end phones like htc onex ,one x+,optimus 4X etc
this phone is a gamer's phone affordable the only draw back is its battery life
2> SGA is a good phone well built its performance is similar to that of 2X but looses out in gaming
department for normal casual usage this phone is no different than galaxy s2 the main draw back is its camera it has no zooming option otherwise it's a good phone
3>sony Xperia sola even this phone's performance is similar to SGA it has the same processor & chip set of SGA the main draw back is its subparr battery performance , no secondary camera & has ordinary s lcd display which is not bright or colorful enough
4>HTC desire x it is the new phone & the most expensive ofem all it is very well built houses a new
snapdragon s4 processor
But it lacks many features no secondary camera.No hd video recording this is because of old chipset & old gpu. even this phone has ordinary s lcd display & has the least performance ofem all
so if i want to select from these phones i would select SGA or 2X (mainly SGA it has better battery)
Which phone is good...
1. Galaxy S Advance
2. Sony Xperia Sola
3. Sony Xperia go
in confusion which one to buy....
Arnel, 21 Oct 2012Hi Bittu
1) 2GB ROM means 1.97 of space which is user accessible, which means you can insta... morei don't think so guys. ROM is read only memory, and read only means that we may view or read its content but we can't modified it (add or remove, except via recovery mode)
mine is 8gb version and here is detailed memory:
- 4gb (3,9gb usable) called sd card memory, which you may use it to store common data like musics, videos, pictures or any other files including sd data when we install any hd games
- 2gb (1,91gb usable) called internal memory, which you can only use this to install apk files (games and application installer)
- 2gb (mine shows only 631mb usable via titanium backup) called ROM, which can only be used to install the OS, including build in / default application like messaging, contact, camera, browser for example
normally we can only install any application to the 2nd memory i mentioned. we can, yes we can install any application to ROM, but we must do it through recovery mode and the applications we will install are not apk, but zip.
to prove whether my statements are right or not, use any file manager to see them.
Please help which better
I want mobile just good in viber , Skype and Internet good camera vedio call
Raj, 21 Oct 2012In this phone ,in india now available jelly bean? Pls reply....nope buddy,i came with gingerbread!!but samsung promised to upgrade it to jelly bean!!
sam, 19 Oct 2012I want buy ths . Can i buy or not plz tell me frndU can buy it.
i am using S advance last one month. my experience this mobile is too valued for money. no any type of lagging and i didn't face network problem. performance very good. disadvantage that no camera zooming and os gingerbread. am waiting for higher version of android version.....
Oh my, it is not possible to zoom while capturing photos even with 3rd party camera app, i'm just wondering is it hardware's limitation or it is up to OS? let's wait Jelly Bean update and we'll see
bittu, 21 Oct 2012Hi frnds...I am planning to buy this device.. going thru all the reviews n all... still I have... moreHi Bittu
1) 2GB ROM means 1.97 of space which is user accessible, which means you can install applications upto 2 giga bytes.
2) I never had a network problem, though the problem exists in the devices that are currently in the market. However my SGSA had an issue wherein the GPRS connectivity was intermittent which was sbsequently resolved after the OTA update(to GINGERBREAD.DDL1 I'm sure you too can do it after you buy this device)
3) Remember Smart phones always have digital zoom and not optical zoom... Digital zoom is not a true form of a zoom function. The image itself doesn't actually come any closer as the optics in the phone camera stay the same. The way the digital zoom works is much the same way as it does on your PC at home. It takes a portion of the image and expands it to the full size of the picture. What happens here is that the section of image that you are looking at becomes bigger, not closer thereby reducing the image quality......SO FOR ME ZOOM REALLY DOESN'T MATTER AT ALL UNLESS IT SAMSUNG COMES UP WITH SOME OPTICAL ZOOM TECHNOLOGY IN ITS COMING PHONES....
Hope this answers all your concerns....
