When it comes to compact smartphones Sony Ericsson are a manufacturer who really seem to excel in this area of the market. With larger screened devices the brand has acheived somewhat varied success yet with the smaller phones the models are of a consistently great standard. The latest handset they have released is the Xperia Mini, an update from last years Xperia X10 Mini Device. There is new competition in this area however in the form of the Samsung Galaxy Mini which is part of the Korean firms popular Galaxy range of models. So which compact phone comes out on top when we compare these two excellent little models?

Traditionally compact mobile phones lose a little of the style that their larger counterparts boast but the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini is refreshing in that it actually stands out and takes on a whole new identity of its own. The phone boasts an attractive blend of sharp angles and neat curves that keep it looking both modern and expensive. The Galaxy Mini is also an appealing handset but certainly not as instantly eye catching as the Sony Ericsson. The phone is much more curvy in its design and can ...
... almost be described as pebble like in terms of its appearance. These two phones are both very lightweight with the Sony weighing in at a tiny 88 grammes which is a full 18 grammes less than the Samsung. Despite this impressive figure the phone is still not the slimmest at 16mm which is 4mm thicker than the Galaxy Mini. The Sony certainly comes out on top in the design department just as it does when we take a look at the screens on both devices. Despite sporting the larger of the two screens the resolution on the Samsung means that when you break the figures down to a dots per inch rating the figure is just 127 rather than the impressive 156 that Sony Ericsson pack into their 2.55 inch display.

Both the Samsung Galaxy Mini and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini use relatively high powered 600Mhz processors within their small frames. Of the two devices the Xperia Mini sports superior performance thanks to the excellent Qualcomm MSM7227 chip that used. The Samsung Galaxy Mini is still incredibly snappy and it is doubtful whether anybody could question the phones performance. Where the Galaxy does make up some lost ground however is when it comes to to operating systems. Boasting the Android 2.2 platform the phones developers have promised that it can be updated to 2.3 together with the improved graphics and enhanced multitasking facilities. The Xperia Mini uses only Android 2.1 Eclair with no option to update so in this area Samsung seem to be well on top.

Undoubtedly these are two of the better compact handsets available but the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini comes out on top in this dual. It is a shame however about the operating system because if Sony could just match the Samsung in this department then we may well be looking at the best phone of its kind ever released.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini is coming soon and the Samsung Galaxy Mini is available now
