Are you looking for an Android Phone? Well, then you are right on time. Sony Ericsson’s Xperia range offers to its customers a varied range of options for different needs as well as budgets. We have lined up for you two of these handsets – the Sony Ericson Xperia Neo and Sony Ericson Xperia Arc.
The first time that I set my eyes on this Android-infused Xperia pair was back in Feb during the then ongoing Mobile World Congress in February and needless to say that I was mighty impressed. Both the Xperia Arc as well as the Xperia Neo has made justified use of proprietary Sony technology, for instance, the Mobile Bravia Engine and also the Exmor R image sensor.
Let’s see which is a better pick amongst the two?
Whereas the Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo has a 3.7-inch LCD ‘Reality’ display and a resolution of 854 by 480, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, on the other hand, is leaps and bounds ahead of the Xperia Neo with an amazing 4.2-inch LCD ‘Reality’ display. However, the resolution remains the same for this one too, that is 854 by 480. But then the Neo has an edge just because of its display only because the screen is small and the resolution is high it is expected to give a slightly sharper picture than the Arc.

As far as the power is concerned, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo flaunts to the user and the rest a 1GHz Scorpion processor as well as an Adreno 205 GPU. But then as far as the
Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is concerned nothing much has changed with its advent too. I mean to say that it too has 1GHz Qualcomm MSM 8255 CPU as well as an Adreno 205 GPU. To cut a long story short, they are both single-core and also both clocked in at 1GHz. Although I must say that I am not taken aback to see that the Xperia Neo is featuring this level of processing power given its slightly more mass-market focus, however, I sure am a little disappointed in the Xperia Arc which hasn’t made it into ‘superphone’ territory by lending some dual-core processing goodness
The Operating system
Whereas the Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo comes in laced with Android 2.3 with Timescape UI, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, on the other hand, features an Android 2.3 with Timescape UI. You’ll be more than glad to see that both these handsets are laced with the latest version of Android. And As far as the Android skins go, it is not the worst that I have seen, and we I like the Facebook integration and customizable home screen dock in particular.

Okay now is one of the essential features of these handsets. Even though Android phones are not famous for a great camera, Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo has an arguably lovely camera in the form of 8.1 megapixels. Not just that it is also laced with the mobile Exmore R CMOS sensor, an LED flash and also a 720p video recording. The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is even a step ahead with the 8.1 megapixels. It too has the mobile Exmor R CMOS sensor and an LED flash alongside 720p video recording
So we have given you the basics, but the choice is yours to make.
