One of the best products available out there,that to available at this price is a bang for your buck!This along with SE xperia ray and SE xperia arc have been a ticket for SE to get back in smartphone market.Okay enough of this market comments, lets get back to product.
First the looks,well just one word-GREAT.If you guys want to know how this device looks and feels, just have a look at SE vivaz(you will be able to get a dummy model at your local vendor.)
The charger is standard micro usb charger, which now-a-days you can get in every phone, avery good point,now i dont have to carry my charger as i find this charger almost everywhere,and i can also charge with a laptop!Charging port and headset insertion point is on top.One more thing that you will find on top is HDMI port!very few phones have this feature.
It has a decent camera of 8MP capable of taking wonderful pictures.I also have a N8 and i can actually compare pics of both the phones.Camera is placed in the center so you have a digital camera feel and it comes handy when taking photos of yourself.It is a exmor r camera so no problems with low light.flash light is very powerful.A terrific feature of this phone is 3D sweep panaroma which enables one to take 3D pics with just one camera(generally 2 cameras are required to take a 3D photo).Video camera is very very good.Continuous auto focus is available, a very rare feature especially in this price range.It is capable of recording videos in HD
Android 2.3.4 comes preloaded in the phone,this means you don’t have to wait for a update,though the latest update is ice cream sandwich but no phones are yet available with that update so one is not missing out on anything!Sony’s own UI is very good.Especially the facebook integration,if you are a facebook user like me,a very big plus.
3G connectivity is also very nice.if you are not a 3G user, let me tell you EDGE is also very good.
Display is one of the best LCD displays in the market.Though it is not SuperAMOLED(found in Galaxy SII)but it is close.Sony has introduced BRAVIA in phones whit mobile BRAVIA engine.It is a LED back lit LCD screen(same as LED TV),so it is very good.
It is powered with 1GHz processor with a GPU and 512 MB RAM,means no problem while browsing or playing games.The multitasking is also very good with no delays.Though this phone is not a dual core phone but practically speaking, an average user does not need one.
The GPS is very responsive and you can practically use it.
