19 August 2011 The Samsung Galaxy Pro was announced in March 2011 and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro was announced in May 2011. 


At a glance, the Samsung Galaxy Pro is obviously bigger than the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro. This is because the Samsung Galaxy Pro has to fit in a portrait QWERTY keyboard below the screen. The Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro on the other hand is a side-slider phone, which conceals the QWERTY keyboard when the phone is closed. Despite being smaller in size, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro is slightly heavier than the Samsung Galaxy Pro by 32g (136g vs 104g). 


The Samsung Galaxy Pro has a 2.8-inch display which carries 320 x 240 resolution pixels and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro has a 3.0-inch display that carries 320 x 480 resolution pixels. Both devices are equipped with capacitive touchscreens, but the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro supports 16M colors while the Samsung Galaxy Pro only supports 256K colors. 


Powering the Samsung Galaxy Pro is an 800 MHz processor. The Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro is powered by a faster 1.0 GHz Scorpion processor with Adreno 205 GPU. The Samsung Galaxy Pro and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro have limited internal storage, having 512MB and 400MB respectively. To compensate for the lack of internal storage, these two devices support microSD card up to 32GB. 


In addition, the Samsung Galaxy Pro uses Android version 2.2 (Froyo) and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro uses Android version 2.3 (Gingerbread). Honestly, there would not be a huge difference between version 2.2 and 2.3 of the Android operating system. 


The Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro has an upper hand by offering a 5-megapixel camera compared to the Samsung Galaxy Pro which has 3-megapixel camera. In addition, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro has a front facing VGA camera which the Samsung Galaxy Pro lacks. 


Despite a minor pricing difference of about RM 25 between the Samsung Galaxy Pro and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro, we think the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro would be a better option. This is because the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro offers a bigger display, faster processor and a higher megapixel camera than the Samsung Galaxy Pro.
