LG Optimus 2X vs Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc: On looks alone

There are some great new phones coming to the arena over the next few months and two that have been talked about very favorably are the LG Optimus 2X and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc. We’ve been posting many articles about both of these upcoming handsets and just recently have posted a comprehensive look at the Xperia Arc with video and also news on a release date in April for the Arc.

To keep things balanced 2 of our recent articles on the LG Optimus 2X include some pricing news and also a hands-on video. Both the Optimus 2X and the Xperia Arc look set to lead the way in the latest wave of Android handsets and so it’s natural that we’d like to make a comparison of some kind. Vlad Savov over on Engadget notes that LG and Sony look ready to really compete in the top flight of Android handsets in 2011 and Engadget has managed to get the Optimus 2X and Arc to have a good look at how they compare, at least looks-wise, with more detailed reviews to come later.

The Optimus 2X has a 4-inch screen whereas the Arc has a 4.2-inch screen although the handset size is about the same. The Optimus 2X though, has a Tegra 2 dual-core processor so that could sway it for some. On looks alone though, which is what this hands-on focused on, Savov noted that aesthetically it’s the Xperia Arc that is the more pleasing and also pointed out how light the device was. We noted in one of our first articles about the Xperia Arc, just how very beautiful this super-slim handset is and it seems that we’re not the only ones to think so. Although Savov notes that the Optimus 2X is also well-designed he felt that the Xperia Arc “looks and feels more refined.”

If you want to see more of these two handsets side-by-side Savov’s article also has a video so head to the Engadget link above for more.
