Sony Xperia M vs. Samsung Galaxy Core

Samsung Galaxy Core comes with dimensions of 129.3 x 67.56 x 8.95 mm and weighs 124 grams. The thickness and weight of the phone makes it quite handy. It has a 4.3 inch TFT LCD touch screen with 480 x 800 pixel resolution giving it a decent display.

On the other hand, the Sony Xperia M is 9.3 mm thick, 124mm high and has a width of 62mm weighing 115 grams. With some difference in its measurements, it is evident that Xperia M is a chunky phone. It has a 4 inch touchscreen with 480 x 854 pixel resolution and 16 M colors.

Running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, Sony Xperia M gets its power from Dual Core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor which has clock speed of 1 GHz. It is bundled by Aderno 305 graphics processing unit and 1 GB RAM.

The Samsung Galaxy Core is powered by 1.2 GHz Dual Core which is slightly more than Xperia M. the operating system of this phone is same as the above mentioned device i.e. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system and it also has 1 GB RAM.

So in the category of performance, these phones do not show much difference.

Sony Xperia M comes with a 4X digital zoom and features like Dual LED flash, Face detection, Auto focus, Geotagging, Red-eye reduction, Sweep Panorama and Touch focus.

Samsung Galaxy Core takes a score higher than Xperia M in this category. Galaxy core has an in built storage of 8 GB which can be expanded up to 32 GB whereas Xperia M has 4 GB memory that is also expandable up to 32 GB. But the 4GB in Xperia M, out of which the user would probably get 2 GB which is quite less when compared to the grand 8GB to Galaxy Core.

Similarly, Galaxy Core has a bigger display but Xperia M has better resolution. So snatching away crown from each other, they both remain uncrowned. The major point that differentiates these phones is the memory. So if you can mange in a 4 GB internal memory space, then Sony Xperia M is a great option. Else Samsung Galaxy core is no disappointment.
