Difference Between Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc and Apple iPhone 4

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc vs Apple iPhone 4

When it comes to smartphones, Apple’s iPhone 4 is tends to be on the higher end of the price range. If you want something else, you may like the Xperia Arc from Sony Ericsson as it is a bit cheaper than the iPhone 4. One major difference between the iPhone 4 and the Xperia Arc is the size of the screen. Compared to the 3.5inch screen of the iPhone 4, the Xperia Arc has a considerably larger 4.2 inch screen. Even though the Xperia Arc maximizes the use of the front, it is still necessary to increase its size to accommodate the larger screen. Despite being bigger, the Xperia Arc is lighter than the iPhone 4.

Another notable difference between the Xperia Arc and iPhone 4 is the camera. The Xperia Arc has an 8 megapixel rear facing camera. The two are both capable of recording 720p video; so the difference in the camera would only be apparent in the maximum size of the still photos you can take. What the Xperia Arc lacks is a front facing camera that can be used for video calls. The iPhone 4 has a front facing camera but restricts video calling to when you are connected via WiFi. Other phones allow video calling via a 3G connection.

Then, there is the matter of internal memory. Just like with other Apple products, the iPhone 4 comes with a fixed amount of internal memory that cannot be changed. With Android phones, there’s a variety of combinations between internal and external memory. The Xperia Arc goes close to one extreme with just over 300MBs of internal memory. The rest of your files and even apps that would not fit there, should be moved to the external memory. The Xperia Arc does ship with an 8GB memory card, which should be adequate for most people. If you want more, you can easily swap that card with another memory card of higher capacity.
