Hey guys need help for my first smartphone! Its between xperia p or galaxy s advance.. Ive been in dilemma for a month now and these are my opinions of the pros and cons of these two phones.
Pros: slightly above average8mp camera with 1080p vid rec, ics is available, sleek design, aluminium unibody, box 50gb free storage, mobile bravia engine, beautifull display, 1gb ram, scratch resistant glass slighlty cheaper price tag than gs advance (SGD350) within my budget..
Cons: no sd slot, ui and browser lags a bit, non removable below average battery, small internal storage, slow jb update next year.
Galaxy s advance
Pros: sd slot, removable average battery, decent 5mp cam with 720p vid rec, super AMOLED display, gorilla glass, no major drawbacks
Cons: bad design and quality, 5mp cam, average display, jb update next year still running gb, slightly expensive than XP (SGD380) over the budget.
The xperia p has more to offer with a slightly cheaper price tag (8mp with 1080p rec, 1gb ram) though there are major draw backs such as a below average non removable batt life. and the galaxy advance is slightly more expensive and over my budget and im not really a fan of design and build quality either, though less to offer than xperia p but the remvable batt with average life is worryless, gorilla glass is a plus! And no major drawback whatsoever.
Pls respond Whats your opinion in this? And will updating to ics or jb reduce the batt life? Thanks in advance!
orine, 28 Nov 2012I've bought it 2 days back and Charged the battery only 1 hr as it shown 100% charged and then... moreNot at all. It's perfectly normal. Sony uses boost charging technology in their chargers and it can fill up the phones battery in just 1 hour. It's a very good thing about sony smartphones. Xperia p is an awesome looking phone with some very good things but it is let down by non user replaceable 1305mah battery. It is my third choice after Nexus 4 and Xperia S. And it has a strong alternative. That would be Lg Optimus L9.
Xperia P is Better than Samsung Galaxy S III in my opinion.. Everything is damm good.
I want to ask one thing..
I connected to my Office Wifi once and I used internet for about regular 3 days. But after 3 days , I am unable to connect to the wifi. The password is not changed. And also I can connect to other wifi's (home, friends home, etc ) But I can't connect to office wifi only. I type the password and it says Password saved. And it doesnot connect.
I searched in internet about this.. Answers were like Try resetting router. But I dont have access to office router. How can i solve my problem ??
Please suggest me some answers..!!
AnonD-82936, 28 Nov 2012Silver looks classy. Red looks Girly.no doubt about it this is the best looking phone for its price. Silver is elegance but the Red looks stunning.
I am using XP since month.
Things i liked about P
- Gorgeous display
- Sleek design
- Snappy performance.
Things that i don't like
- Mirco sim card slot is really pain. I have faced spring hook failure issue.
- Lower plastic cap doesn't fit well.(i owned black model)
- Not terrible, but mediocre battery life, but i can live with that.
- Linux flavors doesn't detect my phone storage, I have tried on Fedora, Ubuntu.
As sony slashes the price(Atleast in India INR - 22,000) I feel that XP will be better choice against its rivals like SG Advance, HTC One V, intel Xolo,
I've bought it 2 days back and Charged the battery only 1 hr as it shown 100% charged and then unplugged the charger..have i done anything wrong?should i charge it 3/4 hrs like other cell phones?

Insert your mobile phones usb cord to the computer and connect it to the phone. while connecting the cord into phone , push the volume rocker button up simultaneously. Your phone will switch on in few minutes. you can again try power on button after this procedure.
