LG L70 D320N : Android 4.4.2 (kitkat),
Sony Xperia E1 : Android 4.3 (Jelly bean) upgradable to Android 4.4.2 (KitKat).

After taking a glance above, it is quite clear that LG L70 D320N is taking a lead with factory version of Android 4.4.2 kitkat. It has got the most updated version of android factory installed. Sony Xperia E1 also gets upgraded to the same version but It makes a big difference to get it upgraded lat.It might create some issues after getting upgraded.Samsung Galaxy Neo and HTC Desire 501 are resting on the same Jellybean platform which is little older but still used by majority of Smartphone manufacturers.HTC Desire 501 has even bit more older version of jellybean installed which makes it the least updated OS smartphone among this criteria.

2. Lets Take a Look at the Display:

Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo features 5.01 inches TFT capacitive touch screen along with pixel density of ~186 ppi.
HTC Desire 501 features 4.3 inch capacitive touchscreen with high pixel density of ~217 ppi.
LG L70 D320N features 4.5 inch IPS LCD capacitive touch screen with better pixel density of ~207ppi.It’s display is sheltered with latest corning gorilla glass 2, LG UI v3.0.
Sony Xperia E1 features 4.0 inch TFT capacitive touchscreen with so far highest pixel density of 233 ppi. Its screen is also guarded with scratch resistant glass- Timescape UI.
Taking a look at the information provided to you above, it might be clear to you now that Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo has got that big display but not that good resolution, if you are looking for the best quality graphics then other three are the best option. LG L70 D320N is more preferable because of it’s fair pixel density and extra added protection. But if you are quality lover and really don’t care about size of display then you should got for Sony Xperia E1.

3. Time to check Processing Speed:

Samsung Galaxy grand neo has got 1.2 GHZ Cortex A7 Quadcore processor along with chipset BCM23550.
HTC desire 501 has got 1.2GHZ dual core NovaThor U8520 process.
LG L70 D320N has got Qualcomm MSM8210 snapdragon 200 1.2 GHZ A7 Cortex dual core processor.
Sony Xperia E1 has also got Qualcomm MSM8210 snapdragon 200 1.2 GHZ A7 Cortex dual core processor but a long with Adreno 302 GPU.

Samsung Galaxy Grand neo with Quadcore processor will work much more smoothly and make multi tasking easy but the rest also have got well known Snapdragon processors and this won’t usually make a much great impact on them because all these have got same 1.2GHZ speed. Samsung Galaxy Grand neo makes a difference with its quad core and Sony Xperia has got Andreno 302 GPU for assistance to its processor.

4. Efficiency of the Smartphone in multi-tasking and loading up an application:

Samsung Galaxy grand neo,HTC desire 501 and LG L70 D320N are all provided with 1GB RAM for fast running of applications and to overcome hanging of OS but Sony Xperia E1 has unfortunately not been able to make 1GB RAM possible for this smartphone. It’s a very intelligent move here made by Sony, they have provided GPU for efficient running of games instead of providing extra 512 MB RAM.This brilliant step might have also helped them in reducing its cost a bit.

5. Lets see Which smartphone can store maximum stuff:

Samsung Galaxy grand neo has got internal memory of 8GB an 16GB in two different variants which is nice step because users can select their own model depending upon their need of internal memory.

HTC desire 501 has got internal memory of 8GB which is quite good for mid range phones.You can store a lot of stuff in 8GB bu because of advancement of technology even 8GB internal memory looks small.

LG L70 D320N and Sony Xperia E1 has got internal memory of only 4GB which is too low. You cannot store all your HD video’s, images, songs and apps in just 4GB internal memory. It is suggested to use an sd card with these Smartphones.

These two smartphone brands might be of the idea that internal memory doesn’t affect overall performance of the smartphone but surely does provide users with extra amount of storage to keep all their stuff fully loaded and secure. This problem can be solved by using external sd card with good amount of space but it won’t neglect that these two smartphones lack in good internal memory.

6. Who takes better snapshots?

Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo features a 5MP camera (2592*1944) pixels with autofocus and LED Flash.Other features include geo tagging only.
HTC desire 501 features a 8MP camera (3264*2448) pixels with auto focus and LED Flash. Other features include geo tagging, face and smile detection, etc.
LG L70 D320N features a 5MP camera (2592*1944) pixels with autofocus and LED Flash. Other features include geo-tagging, panorama, touch focus and face detection.
Sony Xperia E1 features a 3.15MP camera (2048*1536) pixels. Other features include geo tagging, face and smile detection, HDR, image stabilization and panorama.

Here’s time to think for camera lovers, they have to either go for better camera quality or better processing speed. 5MP camera provided by Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo and LG L70 D320N isn’t bad but 8MP camera of HTC desire 501 is the best among all. It’s very disappointing from Sony Xperia E1 to have only 3.15MP camera with no autofocus and no Flash. Obviously HTC Desire 501 has made a big lead here.Talking about the front camera HTC desire has got 2.1MP camera while Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo and LG L70 D320N has got VGA camera. Sony Xperia lacks front camera that’s quite disappointing. So,far HTC desire 501 is value for money bcause Samsung has concentrated very less in the campera qualities of this smartphone at this price.

7. Which Smartphone lasts longer?

Samsung Galaxy grand neo, HTC desire 501 and LG L70 D320N has got Li-ion 2100mAh battery and Sony Xperia E1 has got only 1700 mAh battery. Look at the stiff cold war between the developers about battery life of Android phones. Many claims have been made before that Android os drain battery life very rapidly so every manufacturere is trying to give better battery life in their smartphones. Sony Xperia is lagging behind here also and others maintained their importance here. But 1700mAh battery isnt too bad for smartphone of lower price group.

8. Network And Connectivity:

Samsung Galaxy grand neo is a dual sim smartphone and supports both 2G and 3G networks.HTC Desire 501, LG L70 D320N and Sony Xperia E1 also support 2G and 3G networks but are single sim smartphones. All these smartphones are wifi and bluetooth enabled and it doesn’t need to be discussed too much because it is alvailable all over the market. We have to take into account what makes difference not what is same between these smartphones. HTC Desire 501 and LG L70 D320N both support least 2G and 3G frequencies while as Samsung Galaxy grand neo and Sony Xperia E1 support maximum 2G and 3G frequencies.
