Sony Ericsson & LG Viewty & Samsung G800

By: Mark Hirst

Sony Ericsson managed to make a whirlwind of promotion on their latest Cyber-shot the C905. This is largely due to the fact that it carries 8.1 megapixel camera within that finely tuned case. And it can contend with LG Viewty and Samsung G800, both are appealing camera phones that were launched in the last twelve months.

Dimension Story

Well anyways, here is the competition with their specifications. In terms of dimensions, LG Viewty weights 112 g, 54.4mm wide x 103.5mm tall x 14.8mm deep. Samsung G800 weighs 129g, 52mm wide x 101.5mm tall x 18.88mm deep. And Sony Ericsson C905 weighs 136g, 49mm wide x 104mm tall x 18 mm deep. Looks to me that LG Viewty has won this round, both Sony Ericsson C905 and Samsung G800 are a little too chucky.

Display Story

With display LG Viewty has 240x400 pixels in its touch screen. Samsung G800 and Sony Ericsson C905 have 320x240 pixels. That's was another point for LG, and a draw between Sony Ericsson and Samsung.

Storage Capacity

In terms of storage capacity, LG Viewty has 100 MB internal memory, bundled with microSD slot for a 2GB expandable memory, Samsung 6800 has 110MB internal memory, and 4GB expandable memory, Sony Ericsson C905 has 160MB internal memory and 2GB expandable memory. A sure win for Samsung 6800.

Camera Powers

Now with their built in camera, LG Viewty has 5.0 megapixel sensor, Digital stabilisation, Schneider-Kreuznach lens, Video at 120fps and Xenon flash. Samsung G800 has 5.0 megapixel sensor, Auto focus and LED flash, 4x digital zoom and 3x optical zoom. Sony Ericsson C905 has 8.1 megapixel sensors, Bestpic, 16x digital zoom, autofocus, Photofix, Image stabilizer, Picture blogging and Red-eye reduction. Surely Sony Ericsson has won this fight.

Connectivity and other features

Moving on to connectivity, it's a win for Sony Ericsson having an added aGPS, compared to LG Viewty and Samsung G800 who both solely have HSDPA and Bluetooth.

Battery Life, LG Viewty : 434 hours on standby and 355 minutes talk time. Samsung G800 has 220 hours on standby and 200 minutes talk time. Sony Ericsson C905 has 380 hours on standby and talk time of up to 9 hours.

Lastly with pricing and availability LG Viewty is at ?179.99 SIM-free, Samsung G800 is at ?239.99 SIM-free and for Sony Ericsson C905, pricing and availability is still at the last quarter of this year.

That wasn't too bad a performance of Sony Ericsson C905...especially at the Camera specs round.?
