Sony Ericsson G900 Vs Sony Ericsson G502: a Sibling Rivalry

Sony Ericsson makes its presence felt with its mobile phones displaying grandeur and elegance of the highest degree. These phones are the favourites of the contemporary generation who aim to get their heads turned with their flashy accessories. These phones, particularly the Sony Ericsson G900 and Sony Ericsson G502 , bring with them the freshness of every season.

With every new release, Sony Ericsson introduces fresh, urbane features to attract the prospective customers. With the advent of the new G-series, the illustrious brand has set a benchmark for the mobile phone industry. These phones have an exemplary style and unique add-on features in addition to all the advanced features without which a phone is considered below par. The Sony Ericsson G900 is one such creation which is itself a surprise package. Within a not-so-flamboyant frame, it carries all the features that can tag it as a smartphone. It took not more than a month for another star of this galaxy to show up, The Sony Ericsson G502 which gives a stark commitment for an unbeatable performance and deliverance. A comparison between the two is not an easy task as both did well in the market due to their own qualities and assets. To start with, let’s explore the elder of the two siblings- The Sony Ericsson G900. It cannot be contradicted that this phone doesn’t look like a high-end device. It looks decent and withdrawn which actually surprised everyone because style and grandeur had been Sony Ericsson’s prime motto. But just after the phone was switched on, its charm got every one praising. It is one of those phones that doesn’t look like a smartphone but has everything which makes an ordinary mobile phone a smartphone.

It comes with UMTS network, WLAN – Wi-Fi 802.11b/g, and USB 2.0. Sending and receiving large files from your phone to the PC is a child’s play with them. The 5 MP camera does everything that a veteran photographer’s kit does, right from autofocus to image stabilisation. Your pictures will look even livelier than the real object with that ultra clarity, high resolution (2592 x 1944 pixels) camera. The user friendly interface of this phone makes browsing easy and enjoyable. Unfortunately, it has some demerits too. It missed out the HSDPA; almost every high-end mobile comes with it to curb out any hassles in connectivity. So the network reception strength falls short of expectation. GPS is absent. The connectivity will lose strength the moment you cross the boundaries. The Bluetooth transfer speed is not up to the mark. It has an internal memory of 160 MB and a Memory Stick Micro (M2) card slot. However, it doesn’t bring with it a memory card. Still, this phone is a value for money. Now moving to its younger sister (sister, because Sony Ericsson G502′s codename is Emelie), this Symbian Operated device weighs merely 83.5 grams. It has a Bluetooth v2.0 with A2DP and USB for data sharing. The G502 is a web-centric device with WAP 2.0/HTML (NetFront 3.4) browser so that you never get put off by connection problems. Access your web mail and POP3/IMAP client email accounts as well from your G502 which supports Exchange ActiveSync for complete mobility. The RSS desktop makes sure you get the latest news and updates from your favourite websites on your phone. The G502 is a sure update as it comes with 3G and HSDPA for serious download speed, which the G900 didn’t have. Now, you don’t need your PC to print your pictures. The G502 comes with a PictBridge which helps you print pictures straight fro your phone.

Sadly, the phrase ‘ Not everyone is perfect’ holds even for mobile phones. The G502 has a 2 MP camera as against the 5 MP camera of G900. Hence, produces mediocre pictures. The display of this phone has poor legibility under direct sunlight. It doesn’t come with a secondary video call camera. The G502 has a very uncomfortable D-pad. In short, both the mobile phones are veterans in their own areas (G900 for camera and G502 for Internet), but lack in some features here and there. Undoubtedly, both the phones are true value for money
