Comparing The Key Features Of The HTC One S And Sony Xperia P

April 20, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 125

The HTC One S is a new handset in HTC's 'One' range, which showcases the manufacturer's first batch of Android 'Ice Cream Sandwich' powered smartphones. In this article I will compare the key features of this handset with those of the Sony Xperia P, one of the latest additions to the popular Xperia range.

Both of these handsets are essentially the mid range offerings in their manufacturer's respective ranges, so you can use this article to help you decide which handset comes out on top.

Screen

The HTC One S has one of the best screens to date from HTC. Measuring 4.3 inches and sporting a resolution of 540x 690 it is also the first Super AMOLED screen from the manufacturer. This means that it benefits from the wide viewing angles, great brightness and colour rendering that the Samsung Galaxy S2 is well known for, with the added bonus of sporting a higher qHD resolution. The Sony Xperia P has an equally impressive screen; with the same resolution albeit slightly smaller at 4 inches. Also, the screen utilises LED-backlit LCD technology rather than the AMOLED panel of the HTC One S. both screens are good, but I would say the HTC One S comes out slightly ahead thanks to its larger dimensions and multiple benefits of its AMOLED panel.

Camera

Both these phones are well equipped as camera phones, and offer similar specifications in this department. Both have a camera with a resolution of 8 megapixels, so the resulting still images are of very good quality. Of course, both have all the usual features you would expect from a higher end camera phone, including LED flash, touch focus, geo-tagging, face & smile detection and image stabilisation to name but a few. The HTC One S has the ability to simultaneously capture still images while recording HD video footage, whereas the party piece of the Sony Xperia P is the ability to capture panoramic shots. Both cameras can of course capture video footage, with resolution settings of up to 1080p full high definition included.

Processor

Often overlooked by many when choosing a new smartphone, the processor is the unsung hero responsible for the performance from all manner of the phones features, regarding both hardware and software. The processor essentially provides the computing power necessary to carry out tasks ranging from the responsiveness of the touchscreen, the speed at which the camera responds, the efficiency of multitasking (running two or more apps at the same time), and the speed at which data is downloaded from the internet or Google Play. Both of these phones have dual-core processors; however the HTC One S comes out on top with a 1.5 GHz clockspeed compared to the 1GHz provided by the processor of the Sony Xperia P. Although the HTC One S is superior in this department on paper, in reality you are unlikely to notice the difference unless you are well versed in the intricacies of this technology.

As you can see, the HTC One S and the Sony Xperia P have some very impressive features, and each one comes highly recommended. In my opinion, the HTC One S comes out slightly ahead with its larger screen, and my own preference from the HTC Sense UI, however aesthetically I would say the Sony is the better looking phone. Either way both are great examples of new Android smartphones.
