    I never thought I would be comparing two technology giants that are, letís be honest, best known for their achievements in other fields of technology. But today, everyone needs to keep doing new things if they are to remain on top. Innovation is the name of the game and that includes entering new markets as well. While Sony entered the cell phone market on its own in 2011, LG has been making smart phones for quite a while now. Here I will be comparing a couple of the best smart phones both these manufacturers offer, the Sony Xperia Z and the LG G2. So letís not waste any more time and get straight to it.

    Size and weight

    The Xperia Z measures 139 x 71 x 7.9 mm while the LG G2 measures 138.5 x 70.9 x 8.9 mm. So while the Xperia Z is thinner, it is definitely longer and wider. Add to this the fact that the LG G2 has a larger screen and you have one more reason to hate the huge size of the Xperia Z. Even when it comes to weight, Sony seems to be far behind LG. The Xperia Z weighs 146 g while the LG G2 weighs 143 g. Even though its only 3 g, something no one will ever notice, if LG can take out a smart phone with a bigger display and battery which is just 3 g heavier than the Xperia Z, Sony have some serious thinking to do.

    This point clearly goes to LG.

    Display

    The LG G2 comes with a 5.2Ē IPS LCD touch screen while the Xperia Z comes with a 5.0Ē TFT touch screen. Arenít TFT displayís a little old now? How can you expect the Xperia Z to put up a fight when it is using old technology? But if you compare the pixel density between both smart phones, itís a whole new story. The Xperia Z actually has 20 ppi more than the LG G2 at 443 ppi to the 423 ppi of the LG G2. What does that mean? It means that the Xperia Z has a more detailed display while the LG G2 has a larger one.

    This one is going to be a draw.

    Memory & Storage

    This is one point which Sony did manage to get right even if they didnít hit the nail on the head. The Xperia Z comes with 16 GB of internal memory and allows memory expansion up to 32 GB. But, when you are using expandable memory, you are basically given access to unlimited memory. All you have to do is replace the memory card. This is one feature that the LG G2 severely lacks. It is only available in 2 versions that come with 16 or 32 GB of internal memory. Both smart phones have 2 GB of RAM though and you can expect pretty much the same from both smart phones in terms of speed.

    Even though I donít quite understand what one would do with more than 32 GB on a smart phone this point goes to Sony, simply because it offers expandable memory.

    Camera

    Both smart phones are pretty similar when it comes to the camera. The Xperia Z comes with a 13.1 MP camera while the LG G2 comes with a 13 MP camera. While both smart phones offer full HD recording, one advantage with the LG G2 is that it offers full HD recording at 60 fps. The Xperia Z has a 2.2 MP front camera while the LG G2 has a 2.1 MP front camera. Both smart phones offer full HD video recording through the front camera as well.

    This point can only be considered a draw.

    OS & Performance

    This is the point where the LG G2 has impressed us all so much in the past few days. Both smart phones come with the latest Android operating system 4.2.2 JellyBean but that isnít why LG has been impressing. The LG G2 comes with a Quad Core, 2260 MHz, Krait 400 processor and Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 chip which is not available in any other smart phone today. On the other hand, the Xperia Z comes with a Quad Core, 1500 MHz, Krait processor and Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 chip. Even heavy weights like the Samsung Galaxy S4 couldnít stand up to the hardware of the LG G2 and there is absolutely no way that the technology in the Xperia Z is even in the same league.

    This point definitely goes to the LG G2.

    Battery

    The 2,230 mAh battery in the Xperia Z has impressed with its stand by time of 22 days. But considering the fact that the LG G2 comes with a 3,000 mAh battery, is that really enough? I donít think so. I feel the battery life of the LG G2 will be far superior to the Xperia Z.

    But still, there is no information currently available for the LG G2 battery and taking that into consideration I will have to call this one a draw.

    Price

    The LG G2 is rumored to be priced somewhere between $ 600 and $ 630. If that is true, all I can say is that itís pretty reasonably priced. The Xperia Z can be picked up free of contract for $ 645 though. When compared with leading smart phones like the Apple iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S4, you could say that the Xperia Z provides better value for money, but when compared with the LG G2 which is just so much better and cheaper, can you expect the Xperia Z to win?

    This point goes to the LG G2.

    Conclusion

    The LG G2 previously knocked down the Samsung Galaxy S4, the Motorola Moto X and the Nokia Lumia 1020. And now it has knocked down the Sony Xperia Z. While these smart phones might pick up a point or so, when you compare them with the LG G2 as a whole they donít really stand a chance. Until someone can come up with a better smart phone, the LG G2 is definitely going to rule the market.
