We did a quick comparison of the top Android smartphones of three handset manufacturers last month (Samsung, Sony-Ericsson, HTC) and I thought might as well do the same with their mid-class handsets.
The same 3 handset-makers have their mid-range models available locally this month — the Samsung Spica i5700, the HTC Legend and the Sony-Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini.
Here’s the chart comparing their specs side by side:
The indicated prices above are SRP so they actually vary from store to store but for the sake of this comparison, the recommended retail price is a good starting point.
Samsung and HTC (Desire vs. Galaxy S) had it neck-in-neck in the round-up of their flagship smartphones. In the mid-class category, Samsung’s Android phone is a clear winner in the price positioning although it lacks a few features compared to the others. The X10 Mini has a good price-specs combination and could steal the spotlight while the Legend is so way up there for a lot of people to be reachable.
Again, design and build is another story altogether and can be very subjective.
So, which of the 3 Android smartphones is a winner for you?
