Choosing Low to Mid-Level Phones
by Iblys - 5/3/12 11:06 AM
I want a new smartphone, I have three options. Which one should I get? Any other phones for a similar price can be suggested.
NOTE: I wont be buying another phone for several years so can you think about the, er, will the phone be OK-ish in the future?
Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc S - £250
Sony XPERIA U - £220
HTC One V - £250
My usage: I listen to a lot of music, hence I opted for the HTC (which has Beats Audio technology) but I heard it doesn't come with Beats headphones D=, can someone confirm? I am also going to use a lot of battery consuming apps and games e.g. GTA 3.
All my phones have flaws which I'm worried about:
- the XPERIA U because although it is the most powerful (1GHz dual-core processer) BUT it only has 4GB of memory which cannot be expanded.
- I'm also not confident about the One V because it's the least powerful and doesn't have Beats headphones
-the Arc S is single-core although it is 1.4GHz; can it keep up with heavy gaming? Is this more powerful than the dual-core 1GHz One V?!
