The Excellent Samsung Galaxy Note And Eluga Power-A Look At Chipsets
Phones LimitedApr 21, 2012 12:30 BST
The Samsung Galaxy Note is regarded by many consumers and industry experts as being the best mobile handset available with a screen larger than 5 inches. Since the launch of this model we have seen a handful of new devices launched that offer similar screen sizes. The latest of these new models is the Eluga Power, a new smartphone released by Panasonic. We see what how these handsets compare for processing power and we also take a look at storage capacity on both devices.
The two phones that we are looking at both incorporate very powerful chipsets that help the phones to deliver excellent operation speeds to the user. The Samsung Galaxy Note uses the excellent Exynos chipset that has been developed by Samsung. This very fast set up includes an ARM Cortex A9 processor which is clocked at 1.4Ghz. The processor chip incorporates dual cores which help the phone to really impress when it come to multi tasking. Accompanying this processor chip is an excellent Mali 400MP graphics processing unit. This set up is the same as what can be found in the best selling Galaxy S2 device although the processor is clocked slightly higher on the Galaxy Note to compensate for the large display. The Eluga Power runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon Krait architecture. This new type of chipset is very impressive and has also been incorporated on the excellent HTC One S. The model uses a dual core 1.5Ghz processor and an Adreno 225 GPU which is one of the very best graphics processors currently available. When we tested the HTC One S this chipset impressed us and we were equally as pleased with the results on the Eluga Power. There is little to chose between the chipsets on both of these phones. The Panasonic may offer the slightly higher specification but in terms of operation speeds it is difficult to detect any difference between the phones.
Devices such as the Samsung Galaxy Noteand the Eluga Power are perfect for watching and listening to a variety of multi media content and therefore storage capacity is an important area. The Note offers internal storage of 16GB which is enough capacity to store 4000 songs or 12 hours of video footage. This should prove ample for the average phone user but for consumers who do require a little more space there is also a 32GB version of the model available. In addition to the internal storage the model also features a micro SD card slot which means a further 32GB of storage is available if required. The Eluga Power also features an external card slot but the internal storage on the phone is half of what is offered on the Galaxy Note at just 8GB. This means that the device will still hold around 2000 audio tracks but only about 6 hours of video footage which is slightly disappointing considering that this is a phone designed to excel at video playback.
The Samsung Galaxy Note and the Panasonic Eluga Power are both powerful smartphones but the Krait chipset used on the Panasonic gives it a slight edge over the Samsung in this department. The Samsung does come out on top when it comes to storage capacity by offering double the capacity of the Eluga Power.
