Today, we are having a comparison of 2 of the most powerful smartphones officially announced until now. The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc and LG Optimus 2X. Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc will have 1GHz Scorpion processor with Android 2.3 Gingerbread preloaded in it. While LG Optimus 2X will have Dual-core 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 proccessor but with Android 2.2 Froyo which is upgradable to 2.3 Gingerbread.
Firstly, have a look at the picture and main specs of Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc
HDMI, microUSB v2.0, A-GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, DLNA, Bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP
Radio: Stereo FM radio with RDS
Physical size: 123.9 x 63.2 x 10.9 mm
There is no doubt that the Xperia Arc looks and feels far more refined and attractive than LG’s well designed Optimus 2X. The Arc’s curvature obviously makes it feel like the thinnest phone we’ve ever seen and its weight is also incredibly minimal. Another note of import is that the 2X comes with a 4-inch screen whereas the Arc offers a more generous 4.2-inch display, yet their overall dimensions are nearly identical. All in all, we’d hardly object to having either one in our pockets, but the Arc wins it for us in terms of aesthetic appeal. Of course, the Optimus 2X has a dual-core Tegra 2 heart beating within, it’s not all about looks, though in the case of this face-2-face comparison, it kind of was.
