Difference between Samsung Galaxy Win and Sony Xperia P

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. Sony Xperia P features a 4-inch TFT touch screen that allows up to 4-touch capabilities. The screen is scratch resistant and has a shatter proof coating. The touch screen provides approximately 275 ppi pixel density along with WhiteMagic technology, which adds an extra white pixel with the already present red, blue and green.


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.

 Sony Xperia P features a 4-inch TFT touch screen that allows up to 4-touch capabilities. The screen is scratch resistant and has a shatter proof coating, allowing the screen to endure minor scratches and everyday scuffs without sacrificing on the quality. The touch screen provides approximately 275 ppi pixel density, though not the best ppi compared to the heavy contenders but the quality of the screen is not sacrificed. This is mostly because of the company’s WhiteMagic technology, which adds an extra white pixel with the already present red, blue and green. The extra pixel generates a higher level of brightness that does not cloud the phone when using it under direct sunlight.

The phone is a little bulky in nature, but it is easy to become accustomed to when holding it for longer periods of time. The phone is also a little heavier compared to similar phones, but again not something that lets the user forget of the other great features of the phone. The phone is encased in a plastic chassis, which is quite smooth to hold but is also prone to many visible scratches and chips. The device has a clear plastic border on the front that also doubles as buttons Home button, back button and Menu button. The power button, the volume rocker and the physical camera button is on the right side of the device, while the left sides hosts a variety of ports including the SIM card slot.

Under the hood, the device is powered by 1 GHz Dual-core processor and hosts the company’s Timescape UI. The user interface is quite smooth and does not glitch when shifting between the screens and the apps. The device runs on 1 GB RAM and comes with an internal storage capacity of 16 GB. Of the 16 GB, only 13 GB is available to the user and it is not expandable. The device houses an 8 MP Autofocus rear camera and a VGA (0.3 MP) front camera, which is a little bit of a letdown. The Exmor R technology ensures that the rear camera provides sharp, clear images, while the front camera does not live up to the same quality.  Though initially powered by Android v2.3, the device is now available with Android v4.0, which no status as of yet for v4.1 upgrades. The phone also comes with additional features such as Motion gaming, MobiSystems’ OfficeSuite 5, Wi-Fi hotspot, DLNA, USB On-the-go, Native USB tethering and NFC capabilities. The Xperia P houses a non-removable 1305 mAh battery, which provides a decent battery life and lasts almost a day. With the amount of features that are offered with the phone, the price tag is expected to be quite high; however, the price is quite affordable and will not make that much of a dent in the user’s pocket.
