Well, guys what do you think about these two brands when it comes to performance and look, personally I like Sony however Samsung is not that bad but still I would like to go with Sony. Sony provides very good sound quality and interface and unique look of the Smartphones, although if you see the all models by Sony. Sony lunched every time something different they bring something innovative look wise and technologies wise. Sony Xperia has became the famous series not even this but also first water proof smartphones came in Xperia series by Sony. There is one thing which I have noticed between Samsung and Sony and that's the Color factor, however both phones provide 16M color's but still if you see the Samsung phones you will find much difference may they use OMLED Screen that could be the reason. Sony shows natural color while Samsung show saturated colors I mean to say, its natural but with saturated effect. I like Sony because of look, and second performance.
