    Kati ya hivyo viwili hapo juu miye nachukua Sony Ericsson... hata kama haina TV tuner, imekomaa kisawa sawa kwa ajili ya shughuli. N96 iko bomba, but inaonekana inamwelekeo wa entertainment zaidi ya shughuli pevu.

    Kwenye maswala ya battery ndipo hapo tutawa-judge vizuri... maana makorombwezo yakizidi battery nazo huwa shida tupu.

    All in all, kwangu mimi Xperia X1 hapo ni winner!!

    Sony Ericsson's 1st Windows Mobile smart phone (Windows Mobile 6). 3-inch touch-screen with a whopping 800 x 480 resolution, 3G, HSDPA, HSUPA (faster uploads), A-GPS, WLAN and slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

    Looks like the first UK phone to have HSUPA - get fast Internet upload speeds, along with fast download speeds (HSDPA). HSUPA speed likely 0.73 Mbps.


    Where the Nokia N96 really makes its mark is with the multimedia features. The N96 is designed to be mainly a video and mobile TV phone and the video and audio performance is top notch. Improved video performance is achieved by using the N96’s hardware video acceleration, which supports H264 video. Previous Nseries models used software to decode this and the improvements mean higher bitrates can now be played back more smoothly giving far better video quality. With a reduced power requirement needed during playback the N96 has a longer video playback capability than previous Nseries devices.

    Mimi nachagua Sony kama simu ya shughuli kwa kigezo cha performance, durability na na nawaachia wale watu wa burudani hio Nokia N96.

    Mkulu Invisible, majibu yangu nimeyaweka ndani ya quotes.

    Ni kwamba, chaguo langu limeelemea kwenye form factor. Xperia1 ni more adaptable kwa vitu vingi, hali ya N96 ni form factor inayo nyima future expansion.

    Kingine ni kwamba, vitu vingi unavyoonekana kuvizimia ambavyo ni multimedia ni vitu ambavyo hata kama unaishia kuvipata kwenye handheld device, bado utaenda kumalizia dukuduku la hamu yako nyumbani kwenye bigger screen au kwenye music system kubwa... TV kwenye mobile will never be a big deal... kumbuka handheld tv zimekuwepo miaka nenda rudi. isitoshe. hdtv bado itakuwa kitu cha kuchemsha kukiweka kwenye device ambayo battery yake haikai muda mrefu halafu screen yake ni mchemsho pia! what is the point... kingine nikiendelea kufikiria zaidi hapa naona naanza kuhisi na kuishuku hiyo output to tv yake... je ina output katika resolution ipi?! Output to tv naona hapa watakuwa wamefanya kitu kizuri as long as hiyo output ina support resolution kubwa. Anyway, hata hivyo Xperia1 ina usb tayari...so that becomes even again! Nyongeza... hapa bongo hdtv ni lini kweli?!!!!

    Invisible, features nyingi kwenye hizi device ni software based, and that being the case, it means either of the devices can have them... however the winner will be the one with high resolution and fidelity output with regard to audiovisual features. And ultimately the one with higher processing capability to which battery life is not a hindrence.
    Baadae mkuu.... labda ulete sababu nyingine:)!! N96 kama chaguo haiipiku Xperia1. Kama napewa kuchagua kati ya kimoja tu, nachukua Xperia1. Lakini kama binadamu ningependa kuwa navyo vyote viwili!!! Na kama kununua na nina budget ya kimoja tu, basi Xperia1 ndiyo nitanunua!!

    Baadae, lol

    SteveD.

    N96 will run on fewer 3G bands(2100/900) than Xperia X1(850/1900/2100).
    although N96 colors would look nice in its comparable smaller screen with higher resolution.N96 have 16M colors compare to 65K colors for X1.
    and if you happen to live in Japan or other High speed internet country then you can't tell the difference data rate transfer btn 7.2Mbps Xperia packs to the almost common 3.6Mbps from N96.and if you live in TZ or US then all of the above speeds are just as irrelevant,since u would never enjoy then fully.But 7.2Mbps is Geeks new best summer love story.
    Xperia definitely packs a faster RAM around 256MB..,actually twice the size of N96..,which happens to be 128MB.
    this goes together with a super cool 512MB storage space that nokia N96 decided to provide only half of that..,(256MB).
    Nokia compensated that with a whooping 16GB internal memory,compare to X1's mere 400MB.
    taking consideration of powerful Qualcom Processor at 528MHZ then Xperia is definitely going to Perform way better than N96.
    Both have good wireless connectivity But X1 being a WM phone have the edge in functionality..,
    and the page rendering is way better and faster in X1 than any Symbian phone.of course X1 is a smart phone,you can always expect that.
    Due to a slower Processor..i.e,N96 will take longer time Btn operations hence dwindle battery life.and the Dual Processor makes things even worse battery wise.
    something that X1 walks away with very easily.
    I personally work on the go and Connectivity and Performance can never be replaced by anything.
    I also think that it's a bit wrong to compare a smart phone with a normal phone.
    a BIT unfair.

    Otherwise they are Both very good phones in their own class.
