Apple iPhone or Sony Ericsson P1i

Mac OS vs Symbian

I plan to change phone at the month of May but till now still unable to make up my mind to purchase either a smartphone with Mac OS or Symbian. Just my 0.02, if you are heavier use on WiFi and Bluetooth then it sure consumes a lot of battery capacity. So if you want to go for days without recharging the battery, then you’d better go for a Symbian.

iPhone has its own uniqueness and elegant design but it is too costly. With 8GB cost approximately RM2250, 16GB cost RM2650. Whereas current market price of SE P1 is about RM1860 with Original Warranty but if goes for AP set, then price would be around RM1200. Hence, I will go for P1 temporary.

However, SE P1 is not the latest phone and it launched quite some time ago. Actually, im Sony Ericsson Fans and always opt for SE phone due to the powerful audio output and more lightweight. P1 is really well built using high quality material and it uses more expensive plastic than M600. So, I’d even say that it’s a good choice for those who like to show off. Haha…

The P1 has 160 MB of internal memory and comes with 512 MB memory card. I’d recommend to install most of 3rd party applications on the memory card and keep the internal memory free for messaging, as the messaging folder cannot be moved to the memory card.

I heard people said that the only restriction is the booting of the system takes too long, is it true?

What about you? Kindly suggest me some ideas.

Stumble it!

  1. 802.11g is backward compatible to 11b. So it’s not an issue. Y I would recommend N95?
    Rich features just lack of Touch Screen. High processor speed, 16mil colour with 2.6″ screen, 2 way speaker w/high quality, GPS, WIFI, wide softwares for install, 5MP camera with auto focus. All wat u need like a laptop. =P

    This just my opinion. BTW X1 will be coming out soon. =)

  2. wow..change phone again..i think u better buy SE phone la since that is ur most favourite phone. so how ur w800i?? got go to find buyer liao bui?

  3. P1i don have a nice qwerty keyboard..user may find trouble when press the button cos it’s too near between each keypad.

  4. Hmm….
    your choice.. ^_^
    n95 is something you can further upgrade to match your needs and etc etc… ^_^
    if you ever need to get a phone…
    let me know…
    i’ve stock… and its pretty cheap for original…

  5. hey id suggest you get the n95.

    5mpx carl zeiss lens with autofocus
    dual speakers
    2.6inch screen
    video recording at dvd quality 30fps
    3g, wifi, bluetooth, usb
    3.5mm headphone jack

    and im using it. so i know its good.

    and if ever u have trouble using symbian on the n95, you can always get tips on 😀

  6. my dept a lot of colleagues already using iphone. they bought it from US. after convert, not more than RM1700, depends on which capacity u get.

    for me, i will get the iphone.

  7. i think these two hard to tear apart one. iPhone usually held by mac enthusiastics and those who only believe in the branding for apple cos alot are brand loyalty ones. i myself is an apple fan so i turn a blindeye on any weaknesses if there it. heard it comes preloaded with virus lately.

    sony also another faithful brand loyalty ones. i’ve also been using SE several years and just feel reluctant to change to other brand becos i love it’s cybershot.

    so now i am at a loss. for practical sake is sony for me. but i also want the iPhone.. how?

  8. then again… you know… life is never fair because you don’t get to choose everything and chuck it into 1…
    if ever n95 has touch screen… probably iPhone would be left far behind… (maybe not so for mac enthusiast)
    if iPhone is to have really high processing power and a 5mp camera… n95 would have been long left in the box… ^_^

    pick something that suit your taste and your needs… don’t pick something just because you’re made to believe you want it… it should be need>wants

    i won’t recommend P1 because i’ve like 5-6 of my friends + colleagues complaining about inpraticality of the phone… lacking features that are a common daily need these days…

    with that being said, i believe it comes down to what kind of job are you in…
