It might be a little difficult for some of the guys to believe but it is true that there is life beyond the two giants: Android and iOS. I am talking ablout the Windows Phone OS, which is quickly making strong inroads into the seroiuly thick market of both the operating systems. The super high end devices like the Nokia Lumia 900 and HTC Titan II has speeded up the process for the Windows Phone operating system.
But here we are going to talk about two of the middle range smartphones which are powered by the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango OS.They are: Acer Allegro and Samsung Omnia W. So without further ado let us get involved into a head to head comparison of both the devices.
CPU and RAM
The Samsung Omnia W has a single core processor which has a clock speed of 1.4GHz the processor is well complimented by a 512 MB RAM. In the Chipset segment the omnia W has a Qualcomm MSM8255. On the other hand the Acer Allegro has a 1GHz Scorpian processor with the same chipset and same RAM memory. Samsung Omnia W holds the edge here.
The Samsung Omnia W has an 8GB storage capacity but there is no space for memory card expansion. The same goes true with the other handset. So both of the mobile phones are at the same pedestal.
In the display section of the comparison the Omnia W has a 3.7 inch screen, which happens to be a Super AMOLED WVGA one with a resolution of 800x440p. On the other hand the Acer Allegro has a 3.6 inch TFT screen with the same pixel resolution. Here too the Samsung Omnia W holds the edge.
The Omnia W has a 5MP camera on the rear side with auto focus and LED Flash. There is a VGA camera on the front too for self portrait and video chat. The Allegro too has an auto focus camera of 5MP with auto focus but it lacks the camera on the front side. No prizes for guessing; Omnia W wins here hands down.
Dimension and Size
The Samsung Omnia W has a dimension of 115.9 x 58.8 x 10.9 mm and weight of the handset is around 115g. It has been stated that the handset has a 3.7 inch screen. The other handset in contention, the Acer Allegro has a dimension of 116 x 59 x 13 mm and the weight of the handset is 126g. Again, the Omnia W emerges victor.
Battery of a handset is as important as any of the specifications. The Omnia w sports a Li-Ion 1500mAh battery whereas the other handset has a Li-Ion 1300mAh battery.
Samsung Omnia W has Bluetooth 2.1 and Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n. There is USB 2.0. It has GPRS and EDGE to show off. Acer Allegro in the same segment has identical offerings. Both the phones support 3G data connectivity.
Both the handsets will be costing the users around twenty thousand bucks. Acer might prove to be a tad loftier than the Omnia W.
Samsung Omnia W, in all the sections of the head to head comaprison, has proved to be a little ahead than the Acer Allegro, plus the price tag is also in favor of the Omnia W. There is the reputation of Samsung which makes the Omnia W a better choice between the two handsets. But, it has to be said that Acer Allegro is, by no means, closer to being a bad handset.
