Another Difficult Choice – The Huawei Ascend P1 S Vs. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus
The decision to buy a new 3 g mobile phone is never an easy one. For some people, this can be a hefty investment, and you want to make sure that your money is being used sensibly on a product that you’re not going to regret buying. But with so many makes and models on the market, it can be truly difficult to know which one is the best phone for you. Today we’re looking at two models. The Huawei Ascend P1 S, a lesser known brand name, perhaps, but one with a growing reputation of producing good quality, decently priced, handsets; and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, part of Samsung’s best-selling Galaxy range. These are both great handsets, but we wanted to know which is better. So we put them to the test, head to head, to find out exactly how they compare and what their differences are. If you’re in the market for a new hand set, then you might want to read on to find out which of these two models gets our seal of approval.
What the Huawei Ascend P1 S Has to Offer…
The Huawei is the faster phone. It comes running a 1500 MHz processor, rather than the slightly slower 1200 MHz processor on the Nexus, making it more powerful, snappier and more responsive. It also has a much better camera. The in built camera on the Ascend is an 8 MP device, rather than the 5 MP cam on the Nexus, meaning that photos taken on the Ascend are better quality and have more fine details than those taken by the Nexus. Finally, the Ascend does come in thinner, smaller and lighter than the Nexus, making it that much more portable.
What the Samsung Galaxy Nexus Has to Offer…
The main benefit of the Nexus lies in its screen. It does have a slightly larger screen, measuring in at 4.6 inches over the Ascend’s 4.3 inches. But it’s also better quality. The display on the Nexus has eighty per cent higher resolution coupled with twenty per cent more PPI (pixels per inch), these two things combined make the picture quality on the Nexus brighter, crisper and cleaner than that of the Ascend. You also get a lot more internal storage on the Nexus, which comes with 16 GB of internal memory as compared to just 4 GB on the Ascend. For you, this means four times more music, photos, videos and data that can be stored on your phone.
What’s the Better Buy?
These are both great phones for great prices. When it comes down to making a decision, it probably depends on what you’re going to use your phone for. For those people who take a lot of photos, the Ascend is really the way to go, with its better camera. On the other hand, if you’re more into using your phone as a music player than a camera, the extra storage space on the Nexus will make it a better buy for you. They are both solid, good looking devices though, so we don’t hesitate to recommend either of them.
