Sony Xperia C3 vs Samsung Grand 2
Design and Display:
ThÂ Sony Experia C3Â features a 5-inch display with a 720 x 1280-pixel resolution with a pixel density of 267Â ppi. While the other hand rival, The Grand 2Â features a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED with sameÂ 720 x 1280-pixel resolution with the pixel density of 267 ppi. That meansÂ that both the gadgets have same screen size with the same pixel density and the image resolution.
The C3 experiaÂ gives you slightly more screen space, not only because it’s fractionally larger, but because theÂ 816Â has on-screen controls.
The C3 experia features a 1.2GHzÂ Quad coreÂ Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8928Â with ARM Cortex-A7 chips inside and a Adreno 305Â GPU with a 1535 MB of RAM. While the Grand 2Â NeoÂ features a 1.7 GHz 6Â core, ARM Cortex A-7 Â chip Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 8226 with the sameÂ Adreno 305 GPU Â as well as 2048Â MB of RAM. Which means that the GrandÂ 2Â has moreÂ RAM than its rival 816 and offers more space than the other one. But when we work on the phones then we found that the 816Â takes a lead in terms of processor speed. So the 816Â has an advantage over GrandÂ 2.
The C3 experia features 8Â GB of on-board ROM. AndÂ the phone is Â supported with a external SD card Slot with 128GB of expendability. A 12 GB and 60 GB of free Google Drive space is also given along with the ROM options. While the grandÂ NeoÂ features 16Â GB on-board storage and with an external storage of 64 GB via external SD card slot. A 50GB of free cloud storage through Dropbox for 2 years is also provided. This means that both the phones have same internal storage and areÂ compatible for an external SD card slot.
The C3 experiaÂ features the same UltraPixel sensor (f/2.0 aperture) found in the original desireÂ phones, although it’s a better all-round performer than before. It also has a Duo Camera for depth perception which means that there’s a range of fancy features on offer and 2-megapixel (f/2.0 aperture) front-facing camera which is goodÂ for selfies. But the front camera is not an HD version.
On the second half, the grand 2Â features a 8-megapixel sensor with fast 0.8 second capture speed. The grandÂ NeoÂ camera is alsoÂ known for the best photography so the grand 2Â takes the lead in terms of camera. TheÂ Note 3 Neo smartphone can also capture Ultra HD video, something the C3 experiaÂ is incapable of and there are a range of smart functions, including “selective focus” which produces similar to C3 experiaÂ without the additional lens. This new added features lets you choose over grand 2.
The C3 experiaÂ features Android 4.4 KitKat and Sense 5.5. The grand 2Â features Android 4.4 KitKat and a new version of TouchWiz. Both have same operating systems but the grand 2Â has a bigger advantage of the Android 5.0 lollipop update. So the Grand 2 leads in operating system over HTC Desire 816.
The C3 experiaÂ features a 2100Â mAh battery that is supposedly 40 per cent more efficient than the first xperiaÂ phone, which could last up to two days with 2G services. However experia c3Â has added aggressive power saver options to make sure your device lasts the distance and it’s very impressive.
The grand 2Â features a 3000Â mAh battery that will get you through the day. It also offers power saving features to match those of NoteÂ series phones. Both devices are a step above the previous generation, giving much better endurance. But in Â battery terms the grand 2Â takes the lead as it has additional features than xperia.
Conclusion whether which one is the best:
The C3 experiaÂ features a machined aluminium body that wraps around the sides making for a 90 per cent metal finish. There will be manyÂ colors available: Black, Gray, Pink, Yellow, Green, Blue, Red, White. It’s a triumph of design, it looks stunning and feels sensational to hold.
The grand 2Â is mainly plastic, sticking to familiar design, but with a more tactile back for better grip. The big positives are that it is dust proof and resistant in liquid down to a metre in depth, and it’ll be available in colours of-Black, Pink, White, Gold.
The C3 experiaÂ feels like the slicker device in daily use. The user interface is faster and although it has less options and features, the interface feels more sophisticated and mature. It offers class-leading sound quality, a great display, but the real winner is the design. In the battle of these two giants, grandÂ NeoÂ takes it, but only just.
The Grand 2Â offers a wider range of features and comes with great connectivity, a stunning display, plenty of power and a camera that performs well. However it feels like it could be faster in daily use and the unique features of the heart rate sensor and fingerprint scanner may well get turned off and ignored.
As per price, the C3 experiaÂ is available at Rs 16,990Â INR and the Samsung grand 2Â is available in India at a price tag of 12,000Â INR.
