It’s raining smartphones right at the very start of the year. First it was Sony that blew us all away with its dust and water resistant flagship, the Xperia Z. While this phone boasts some terrific features, will it manage to find itself victorious against the newly launched LG Optimus G Pro and the HTC One?
HTC One: This one’s the most recent phone to be launched, and the best thing about it is its amazing resolution of 468 ppi. While its 4.7-inch display is the smallest among the three phones, no other phone even comes close to its ppi count, giving it a very strong advantage in this competitive segment. The HTC One is one hell of a good looking device, with its all aluminum casing spelling classy. It’s powered by a 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor and 2 GB of RAM. Another unique feature in the HTC One is the Ultrapixels camera, which promises better color reproduction, sharper and clearer images. This one’s sure to be a hit among the shutterbugs! Add to that the stereo speakers, and you’ve got a whole entertainment package right in this phone.
LG Optimus G Pro: LG looks all geared up to take on Samsung at the smartphone arena. Its newest flagship phone, the Optimus G Pro has a massive 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 401 ppi – the lowest among these three phones. It’s also powered by a 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor and 2 GB of RAM, so in terms of processing power, it’s quite similar to the HTC One. The Optimus G Pro comes with 32 GB of internal storage space and a jumbo 3,140 mAh battery to keep it up and running for a long time. When it comes to camera, go crazy clicking photos with its 13 MP rear camera and 2.1 MP front-facing camera. We also love that this phone comes with a microSD card slot to let us store a lot of our music and pictures on the device.
Sony Xperia Z: Let’s start with its USP – it is dust and water resistant! Who wouldn’t love a phone that’s so sturdy that it’s virtually impossible to damage it? Moving on, the Xperia Z comes with a 5-inch display with a resolution of 441 ppi and is powered by Sony’s very own Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2. It has a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and 2 GB of RAM. Like the LG flagship, this one also comes with a 13.1 MP rear camera along with a Sony Exmos RS sensor as well as a 2.2 MP front-facing camera. There’s a 2,330 mAh battery and 16 GB of internal storage, which can be expanded using a microSD card.
