The Best Of The Best - The LG Nexus 4 Vs. The Sony Xperia Z

By Rizwan Ahmad - 06 February 2013 No Comments
If you're in the market for a new cell phone, you might be wondering what the best buy is. With so many top of the line devices currently on the market, making a decision between them can be hard. Top of the range mobiles can run to hundreds of pounds and are a big investment, so it's important that you make a good decision. Today we're looking at two examples of fully featured phones, the LG Nexus 4 and the Sony Xperia Z.

Both of these are Android phones, they're both marketed as top of the line, and they both retail for around the same price with most mobile operators. So which one is best? We put them to the test to find out exactly how they perform and what their differences are. You might want to read this before you make your purchasing decision, because one of these devices definitely came out on top...

What the Sony Xperia Z Can Do for You...
The Xperia has some great advantages. Probably its best feature is its screen. The Xperia's screen is a TFT LCD display, rather than the older LCD display on the Nexus, so it already has better colour reproduction. It's larger, measuring in at a huge five inches as compared to the 4.7 inch display on the LG. Plus, the screen has double the resolution of the Nexus and has forty per cent more PPI (pixels per inch), meaning that it's brighter, crisper and more vivid than the Nexus. The camera is also higher resolution, being a massive 13 MP in built device, rather than the regular 8 MP cam on the Nexus.

That means that pictures taken with the Xperia are simply higher quality and have more fine detail than those taken on the LG. Finally, you get more internal storage on the Sony, which comes with 16 GB of internal memory as opposed to just 8 GB on the Nexus. So you can store double the amount of music, photos, games and videos on the Xperia.

What the LG Nexus 4 Does Well...
The Nexus does have a couple of advantages itself. Firstly, you get faster maximum data speeds on the Nexus, which means quicker downloading and faster opening of web pages. Secondly, you get a little more talk time on the LG. The Nexus averages around twelve hours of talk time per battery charge cycle over the Xperia's eleven hours, which leads to charging your battery slightly less often.

Which One Should I Buy?
The Sony Xperia Z is just a better phone for your money. You get a better display, a better camera and more internal storage space, all of which are important in a top of the line phone. The memory in particular is a good feature. You really shouldn't consider a top of the line phone that has less than 16 GB of internal memory, since it will limit the amount of data you can store and applications that you can run. Our recommendation goes pretty solidly to the Xperia Z over the Nexus 4.
