fake you
geekaphone and other sincere users, i have heard that if the memory of xperia p is nearly full it starts to slow down is it true??PLZ help me buddies
xperia P also have Panorama and the s2 dont have that dont know how s2 won this
Sony Xperia P is the winner because, higher pixel density (275ppi), higher screen resolution(540 x 960 px), Sony WhiteMagic technology, Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine; clearly Sony wines the screen part and also Xperia P's download speed is 7.8mbps i don't know how s2 won the screen part
i agree.samsung hangs if get little bit too virus while sony is a strong phone n is reliable for elegance n software designation
hi geekaphone....hope u doing well.....frnd i am unable to choose between the phones. Please suggest me one out of Sony Xperia P, Samsung S II and Samsung S III....
"The S II has an OLED screen which are generally very bright and vivid, the Xperia P doesn't" Hahhahhahahaaaaa... the Xperia P has this new White Magic display with an additional white subpixel. It is much brighter than the S2, in fact it is glaring. And in comparison to the S2 it has a real white, not this annoying blueish cast like all amoleds have. This comparison is ridiculous, because it is very obvious that it bases just on specifications, not on real tests.
@Geekaphone could you plz help me i'm thinking of taking the xperia p back as i dont know if it is better than this .. The galaxy s. What do yous think is the better phone. Galaxy s xperia p xperia s.. Thank yous
I have just bought the xperia p... Going from the galaxy s you wouldn't think that going from a 4.3" screen to 4.0" would be much different but you do notice it. but still a great phone
Hmm that looks like a bug in our system. We will look into it, but for right now you can check out the <a href=" http://sortable.com/phone/Samsung-Galaxy-Ace-2 ">Galaxy Ace 2</a> on our sister site <a href=" http://sortable.com/phone/Samsung-Galaxy-Ace-2 ">Sortable</a>
i want to compare Samsung galaxy ace 2 but it is not found in your site  ,so please update ! 
Hey @868dd53b416e158d0e78b2af955a43df:disqus , looks like the specs have been updated since it was announced, thanks for letting us know, we will update that soon.
