Which Is The Better Reasonably Priced Phone – The Sony Xperia J Vs. The Samsung Galaxy Ace
If you’re on the lookout for best pay as you go phone then you may have already crossed Sony and Samsung off your list. They’re both big brand names that definitely make expensive, top of the line products. However, they also have lines of budget phones too. Sometimes, buying a cheaper brand name phone is a good idea, because you get a reliable, well made, high quality device. Today we’re looking at two phones, the Sony Xperia J and Samsung’s Galaxy Ace. Both of these are Android models, and they are both frequently offered by mobile service providers either for free or steeply discounted. But which is better? We put them to the test, head to head, to find out exactly how they compare and what their differences are. So if you want to get a new, but reasonable, mobile device then keep reading to find out how these two models stack up and which one gets our recommendation.
Why You Should Buy a Sony Xperia J…
The Xperia really has a lot going for it. It’s the faster phone, coming with a 1000 MHz processor rather than the slower 800 MHz processor on the Samsung, making it more powerful and snappier. It also runs around ninety per cent more RAM, making it more responsive and better able to handle multi-tasking or running more than one process at a time. The screen on the Xperia is larger, measuring in at a full four inches as opposed to the three and a half inch screen on the Galaxy. But the display is also better quality, having 2.5 times higher screen resolution and fifty per cent more PPI (pixels per inch). This means that the picture on the Xperia is noticeably brighter, crisper and clearer than that of the Galaxy. There’s a lot more internal storage on the Xperia, which has 4 GB of memory as compared to just 158 MB on the Samsung, that’s an awful lot more music, photos, data and games that can be stored on your device. Plus, the Xperia is running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, rather than the older 2.3 Gingerbread system on the Galaxy. Generally, a newer operating system version means a little more speed and a lot more stability, with less chance of your phone crashing or freezing. Finally, the Xperia does also come in thinner and generally smaller than the Samsung.
What the Samsung Galaxy Ace Can Do…
Not too much, though it does have a better battery life. The Samsung averages thirty per cent more talk time and stand by time per battery charge cycle than the Xperia does, meaning you have to charge your phone less often. But given how much less power it has, and that it has a smaller screen, it’s to be expected that it would use less battery.
Which One Should I Get?
Obviously, our recommendation this time is going with the Sony Xperia J. You get an awful lot more phone for your money with the Xperia than you do with the Samsung Galaxy Ace.
