Comparison - LG Optimus 3D vs Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S

October 3, 2011
by Jonathan Cheah

03 October 2011 – The LG Optimus 3D was announced during Mobile World Congress in February and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S was announced in September 2011 as an improvement to the original Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc. 


Both the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc s and the LG Optimus 3D are quad-band devices. The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S weighs 117g and the LG Optimus 3D weighs 168g. The LG Optimus 3D weighs almost one and the half times the weight of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc. 


The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S displays 480 x 854 pixels onto a 4.2-inch screen and the LG Optimus 3D displays 480 x 800 pixels onto a 4.3-inch screen. The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S appears to have the better resolution from these specifications. 


The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S uses a 1.4 GHz single-core Qualcomm processor to drive Android OS 2.3 (Gingerbread). The LG Optimus 3D uses a dual-core 1GHz TI OMAP4 processor to drive Android OS 2.2 (Froyo). 


The LG Optimus 3D has a 5-megapixel main camera and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S has an 8-megapixel main camera. The LG Optimus 3D has a front-facing camera. The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S now also has a front-facing camera, something which the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc did not have. The LG Optimus 3D is capable of recording video at 1920x1080 (1080p HD). The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is capable of recording video at 1280x720 (720p HD). 


The LG Optimus 3D has a dual-lens camera that is capable of recording 3-megapixel 3D photos and 720p (30 fps) 3D videos. 


The LG Optimus 3D has 8 GBs of storage and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc has a paltry 512 MBs of storage. Both the LG Optimus 3D and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc can accept microSD cards of up to 32 GBs. 


It would appear that the LG Optimus 3D and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S have their own respective strengths and weaknesses. The LG Optimus 3D has a fancy 3D camera, better video recording resolution and more storage in the device but the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S has a better-rated camera and a faster processor. 


The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S is also a lot smaller and lighter, and it has better screen resolution. The faster processor of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S gives it a bit more consideration, but I still wager that it is still less of a draw than a 3D phone. Let us wait for a pricing announcement for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S before deciding.
