Difference between Spice Stellar Pinnacle Pro and Sony Xperia P

Key difference: The Spice Stellar Pinnacle Pro Mi-535 is a mid-range budget quad-core phone with a speed of 1.2 GHz. It runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and is powered by 1 GB of RAM. The phone features an 8 MP camera with auto focus and LED Flash. The phone also features a 5 MP front-facing wide angle secondary camera, also with auto focus. 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.

Spice Mobiles is an Indian-based mobile company that is part of S Mobility Ltd., which is in turn part of the Spice Group. The company has since expanded its operation to Nepal, Bangladesh, Uganda, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka. It aims to expand its geographical presence from Ivory Coast to Indonesia. However, as a mobile phone company based primarily in India, the company has to keep in mind the dynamic nature of their targeted market in mind. The Indian market is very price sensitive. Hence, the company has to be able to provide new and more or less the latest technology in a phone that is budget friendly. The Spice Stellar Pinnacle Pro Mi-535 is a phone that attempts to do just that.

The Spice Stellar Pinnacle Pro Mi-535 is a mid-range budget quad-core phone with a speed of 1.2 GHz. It runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and is powered by 1 GB of RAM. The phone features a 5.3-inch qHD IPS display with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. It is a dual-SIM phone and is 3G enabled on both SIMs, which is new.

However, the phone’s defining feature has to be its cameras. The phone features an 8 MP camera with auto focus and LED Flash. The phone also features a 5 MP front-facing wide angle secondary camera, also with auto focus. The Spice Stellar Pinnacle Pro is one of the first phones to feature such a powerful secondary camera especially in a budget smartphone category.

Another first in the budget smartphone category is that the phone features a 16 GB internal storage, in addition to external storage which is expandable up to 32 GB.

Sony is a prominent technology company and is known best for its electronics such as phones, TVs, gaming systems, etc. The constant dynamic nature of technology ensures that we always have a better and more forward technology than the one we had a month ago. The price of this dynamic technology is also high, the constant updating of technology requires people have that much cash on hand. However, many companies such as Sony know that not many people have that much cash on hand for disposal, hence has launched mid-range phones such as Xperia P that allows the people to experience the best of both worlds: technology and affordable pricing. The Xperia P was launched in May 2012 and continues to be a major player in the market.

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.
