Looking For A Bargain Phone? The Sony Xperia U Vs. The Motorola Motosmart

Not everyone is looking for a super-smart cell phone that does absolutely everything. For a start not everyone needs all the features on a top of the line cell phone, sometimes we just want to send messages, make calls and maybe check our emails. Secondly, top of the line cell phones come at top of the line prices, and not everyone is willing or able to make that kind of investment. However, there are plenty of decent mid-range phones out there that can be a bargain. Today we’re looking at the Sony Xperia U and the Motorola Motosmart. Both of these are Android phones, running the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system. They’re also both low price devices with most mobile phone service providers. So how exactly do they compare? And which one is the better bargain? That’s exactly what we put them to the test to find out. Read on to find which phone is the better hand set…

Why the Sony Xperia U Might be the Phone for You…

The Xperia has a few advantages over the Motorola. Firstly, it has a better screen. The display on the Xperia has two and a half times higher resolution, as well as seventy per cent more PPI (pixels per inch). These two things combined make for a screen that is noticeably brighter, clearer and better defined than that of the Motosmart. The camera is also higher resolution, being a 5 MP built in device, rather than the lower 3 MP camera on the Motorola. That means that photos taken on the Xperia are better quality and have more fine detail. You get a lot more internal storage on the Sony, which comes with 4 GB of internal memory as opposed to the mere 168 MB on the Motorola. That results in an awful lot more music, photos, videos and games that you can store on your phone. Finally, the Xperia comes in a little smaller than the Motorola, but only by around ten per cent.

Why You Might Want to Consider the Motorola Motosmart…

But the Motosmart has a couple of tricks up its sleeve too. Firstly, the battery power is better on the Motorola. You get around ten per cent more talk time and ten per cent more stand by time per battery charge cycle on the Motosmart. The result of that is that you need to charge your battery less often. You also get better Bluetooth support. The Motosmart comes equipped with Bluetooth 3.0, rather than the older 2.1 version supported on the Xperia. If you connect frequently to Bluetooth devices, such as hands free, the newer version means that you get faster data transfer and that your phone uses less battery power when connecting. The Motorola is also around ten per cent thinner than the Xperia.

And the Better Deal is…

Both phones have their advantages, and they’re both decent quality mid-range devices. However, the better screen and the increased memory on the Sony Xperia U persuade us that it’s the better phone.
