Difference between Samsung Galaxy Win and Sony Xperia J

Key difference: The Samsung Galaxy Win is yet another phone by the Samsung Corporation. The Samsung Galaxy Win comes in two variants: Single-SIM and Dual-SIM. The Samsung Galaxy Win is also sold as Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro in certain markets. The phone is a quad-core smartphone aimed at the budget segment.  Samsung Galaxy Win or Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro runs on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) which is powered by 1.2GHz Quad core Qualcomm MSM8625Q Snapdragon 200 Processor and 1 GB of RAM. Xperia J was announced in October 2012 as a cheaper variant of the Xperia T, resulting in the phone sporting a similar design to the T. The Xperia J features a 4-inch scratch-resistant TFT touchscreen that offers a pixel density of 245.


The Samsung Galaxy Win is yet another phone by the Samsung Corporation. Samsung seems to want to flood the market with its own products. In fact, it seems that Samsung’s biggest competitor will soon be Samsung itself. This seems even more likely as despite numerous phones in the market, Samsung also releases variants of those phones. The Samsung Galaxy Win comes in two variants: Single-SIM and Dual-SIM. The Samsung Galaxy Win is also sold as Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro in certain markets.

The phone is a quad-core smartphone aimed at the budget segment.  Samsung Galaxy Win or Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro runs on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) which is powered by 1.2GHz Quad core Qualcomm MSM8625Q Snapdragon 200 Processor and 1 GB of RAM.

The user interface is that usual Samsung TouchWiz, however it has the additional Motion UI. The Motion UI allows user to control certain features on the phone by moving the phone a certain way. An example would be flipping the phone to face downward will mute the incoming call. The device also has an Easy Mode that helps the user access key functions such as favorite contacts, apps, dialer, etc on the homescreen with ease.

The device features a 4.7 inch WVGA TFT LCD screen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. It also has a 5 Mega pixel rear-facing camera with LED Flash and auto focus, as well as a VGA front facing camera. The phone also has additional camera features such as Continuous Shot, Best Photo, Color Effect and Scene Mode.

Xperia is a well known brand of smartphones that are a part of the Sony Mobile. The Xperia brand was initially a collaboration with Ericsson but has since then been dissolved. Now, Sony has single handedly taken it upon itself to ship out new phones, while maintaining the level of quality and design of the older versions.

The Xperia J was announced in October 2012 as a cheaper variant of the Xperia T, resulting in the phone sporting a similar design to the T. The Xperia J features a 4-inch scratch-resistant TFT touchscreen that offers a pixel density of 245. The pixel density is the not the best among the contenders, but that does not hinder the high-res display that is visible on the phone. The display shows quite smart and sharp images, with very accurate color representation. The display also has excellent viewing angles and does is less reflective under sunlight.

The design of the phone is also quite similar to Xperia T. The phone comes with a plastic chassis that has a sturdy built. The Xperia J has an arched back similar to Xperia Arc series, which is pleasing to hold and grip. The silver plastic lining that graces the other Xperia series has been shifted to the bottom and acts as a second LED indicator during calls. The phone is also quite light, weighing only 124 grams. The Timescape UI is very similar to the original Google Android UI and basically seems like cheap imitations. The phone has three capacitive buttons on the bottom of the screen, Back, Home and Menu buttons. The buttons are placed on the far bottom of the device, making it more prone for the user to drop the device. The top of the device houses the 3.5mm jack, while the left side has the USB/charging port. The right side of the device is quite busy with the power/lock key on the top right hand and the volume rocker just below the power key.

The device is powered by 1 GHz Qualcomm processor and only 512 MB, which makes the device a little glitch and lagging when trying to shift screens as well as switch apps. The device, when not multitasking and doing basic functions, still lags a little. The device comes with 4 GB of internal space, of which only 2 GB is available to the user. This is very little compared to phones that are offering 8/16/32 and even 64 GB. However, the company has provided a SD card slot that allows users to expand memory by another 32 GB.

The device houses a 5 MP rear camera with autofocus feature. Just above it, a LED flash light can also be found. However, the front camera and the video recording capabilities are a little disappointing. Both, the front camera and video recording are VGA, which does provide the best resolution. The 5 MP camera is pretty decent, but if you have gotten used to the high-res 8 and 12 MP cameras, this camera will not at all be pleasing. The camera takes decent photos, but it isn’t sharp, clear or even HD for that matter. However, the phone does come with juice, 1750 mAh to be exact. This ensures that the phone last a couple of days when not in constant use and at least a full day when working with it all day. The company does offer features such as Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth and USB, but it does not offer NFC capabilities.
