Gallery: Sony Xperia P

I find the Sony Xperia P a nicely designed smartphone. The size is just right for one-handed use without the display being too small (4.0 inches). The body is plastic, but does not feel or look cheap. The P is also quite lightweight, clocking at 120g. The review unit here is black.

The display is quite sharp and beautiful for all tasks – whether it is for image and video viewing or web browsing. Sunlight legibility is very good. Much better than what obtains on the Samsung Galaxy Note II or the Nokia Lumia 610.

The transparent horizontal strip below the display is a touch of class. This is where the three standard Android buttons are located, and the buttons work well despite this unique approach.

The Xperia P casing is sealed. That means that the battery is non-removable. There is also no microSD card slot. However, there is a HDMI port on the left side, a 3.5mm audio port at the top, and a hardware camera button on the right alongside volume and power keys.

at the back is the 8 megapixel camera, which takes stunning pictures in good lighting. However, so far, my opinion of the LED flash is that it is weak. Below the camera is the NFC label, so you never forget that this mid-range Android smartphone is NFC-enabled.

This is a smartphone designed with lots of attention to details. I will publish more articles about the Xperia P in daily use. However, I can already say that Android fans should pay the Xperia range some more attention, as they pack a wallop and in some cases outdo devices from competing manufacturers. More to come.

    the great sunlight legibility is probably the greatest feature I appreciate on my own Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro .

    perhaps it runs in the Sony smartphone family?

    “However, I can already say that Android fans should pay the Xperia range some more attention, as they pack a wallop and in some cases outdo devices from competing manufacturers”.

    Hard to pay attention to this when samsung is churning wicked products like The samsung Galaxy Camera (a honest to earth camera attached to a “mobile device”) and Galaxy Grand Duos (19082) (a budget 5.0 dual sim device with jelly bean, 8mp, removable battery with micro sd expansion up to 64GB and several of their flagship-S3 selling points). Sony should step it up already, all ’em tame approach is what secured them a back-seat with no popcorn in my opinion. wait, they made that HD water resistant screen? Yay! Like that is ground-breaking.

    I rest my case, I’m hungry.
