Comparison Between The Play Station Portable And The Ipod Video

Comparison between the​ play station portable and the​ iPod video

The new iPod video was one of​ the​ most surprising products of​ 2006,​ due to​ the​ fact that iPods didn’t include the​ video feature,​ since the​ launching of​ the​ 5th generation of​ iPods in​ 2005 .​

Still,​ the​ natural comparison the​ customers (and not only) made was the​ one between the​ play station portable,​ also known as​ the​ PSP and the​ new model of​ the​ iPod series .​
PSP is​ basically a​ handheld game console which was produced by the​ company Sony Computer Entertainment,​ back in​ 2004 .​
The public’s reactions to​ this new device which was rather different than almost everything on​ the​ market was very good,​ due to​ the​ fact that the​ small device allowed customers to​ play famous games,​ and,​ at​ the​ same time,​ watch clips .​

Comparing the​ batteries of​ these 2 devices or,​ better said,​ the​ life of​ the​ batteries,​ it​ is​ a​ fact that the​ PSP device lasted much longer than the​ iPod .​
While playing a​ movie,​ the​ battery of​ the​ iPod dies after almost 2 hours and a​ half,​ while the​ PSP battery lasts up to​ more than 7 hours,​ which is​ a​ big plus .​

Comparing the​ audio quality,​ it​ must be said the​ fact that both the​ devices provide a​ good audio quality; still,​ the​ iPod video turned out to​ provide a​ slightly clearer sound than the​ play station portable .​
This is​ due to​ the​ act that the​ audio in​ the​ iPod video file is​ encoded into AAC audio .​
On the​ other hand,​ the​ PSP seemed to​ have more bass in​ some cases,​ but overall,​ the​ difference was not that relevant and significant .​
The video quality of​ the​ 2 devices is​ another subject worthy to​ discuss and debate upon .​
It is​ known the​ fact that the​ PSP has a​ much larger screen .​
Even so,​ in​ this case,​ the​ large size advantage does not equal a​ better picture: the​ iPod manages to​ show a​ very sharp picture and sharp and clear text (even long ones) .​
On the​ other hand,​ when discussing the​ difference in​ the​ video conversation,​ the​ fact is​ that a​ video iPod takes around 12 hours to​ encode a​ video,​ while the​ play station portable only needs a​ bit under 3 hours to​ do the​ same thing .​

Comparing the​ 2 devices,​ it​ is​ obvious that they both have advantages and some flaws .​
Even though the​ video quality seems better on​ the​ iPod video device,​ the​ PSP presents a​ longer life of​ the​ battery and faster ways to​ encode videos .​
Still,​ the​ iPod is​ a​ smaller device,​ so it​ is​ natural that some features are not that optimized as​ in​ the​ case of​ the​ PSP .​
Even more,​ due to​ the​ fact that it​ is​ smaller,​ the​ iPod is​ much easier to​ transport and to​ use in​ various occasions .​
The studies even showed the​ fact that both items are sold mostly in​ vacation periods,​ meaning the​ fact that the​ customers use them as​ an​ entertainment item in​ their both summer and winter holidays .​

The 2 devices,​ even though they are similar in​ many ways of​ their practical usage,​ present both pros and cons or​ advantages and disadvantages .​
Depending on​ the​ customer’s needs and desires,​ they can choose the​ one that best fits their necessity,​ available time or​ quality expectations.
