The HTC One S And The Sony Xperia P - A Look At Processing Power And Storage Options

Some of the biggest smartphone manufacturers on the planet have recently unveiled brand new ranges and two of the most impressive that we have seen come from HTC and Sony. These line ups both feature flagship models and also more budget devices aimed at first time smartphone users. We take a look at the two mid range devices in each range, the HTC One S and the Sony Xperia P, and see what the handsets offer in terms of processing power and storage capacity.

Both of these two models incorporate chipsets that could have graced many flagship models 12 months ago. The HTC One S features a dual core processor that forms part of the new Snapdragon S4 Krait chipset. The processor itself is clocked at a very powerful 1.5Ghz and delivers excellent operation speeds to the user while the dual cores mean that the device handles multi tasking features with ease. Accompanying this processor is an Adreno 225 graphics processing unit which boast enough power to handle the most demanding games titles currently available. Considering that this is a mid range device we were very impressed with what the model offers in this area. We experienced no problems when testing the phone and we really did find it hard to differentiate between this model and the premium HTC One X in this department. The Sony Xperia P also boasts a dual core processor but one that is clocked at just 1Ghz. Despite the chip being considerably less powerful we found that its performance was still impressive. Sony have always included high quality single core chips on their older devices and it is evident that this quality extends to the new dual core processors that the company are using. A DB8500 graphics processing unit is also used on the phone which should prove more than adequate for any games that are downloaded although it does lack the performance that the Adreno chip used on the HTC device can deliver.
HTC One S And The Sony Xperia P
The HTC One S comes with 16GB of internal storage capacity. This should prove more than ample for the majority of phones users and should provide enough capacity for over 4000 audio tracks or up to 16 hours of video footage. Unfortunately the handset does not feature a micro SD card slot so there is now way of expanding this capacity but users can opt for one of the various cloud storage services available which provide additional storage. HTC have arranged a deal with cloud storage provider Dropbox and all users of this phone have access to 25GB of free storage. The Sony Xperia P offers exactly the same internal storage as the One S and also does not feature a micro SD card. Users of this phone can opt for an additional cloud storage service although Sony have yet to arrange a deal that allocates users of their devices free storage. Both models are almost identical in this department but the free Dropbox option gives the HTC model the edge.

The HTC One S and the Sony Xperia P are both exceptional mid range devices that actually compare very well with many premium handsets. Both phones include excellent dual core chipsets but the HTC offers a little more in terms of processing power. In terms of storage both units are evenly matched but users of the One S are provided with free cloud storage which is very appealing.
