Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo review

 

Not every smartphone needs to be a Samsung Galaxy S II. There's plenty of room in the market for a reliable workhorse that delivers smooth productivity

Decent build quality ; Vibrant screen ; Mostly vanilla Android

Two-minute boot time ; Native camera app over-compresses images ; Hard to type accurately, especially in portrait

Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo Review

 

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo arrives with something of a personality problem. Where the XPERIA Play was resolute in its gaming ambitions, and the XPERIA Arc promised to put Sony's living room prowess into a pocket-friendly package, the Neo takes on the...

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo does most of what you’d expect from a recent Android device; the only problem is, the XPERIA Arc has already got there first, several months ahead. The Neo is fatter than the Arc but has a smaller, less impressive display,...

Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo review: More than a sequel

 

Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support, 3G with 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, 3.7" 16M-color capacitive LED-backlit LCD touchscreen of FWVGA resolution (480 x 854 pixels) on Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine, Android OS v2.3 Gingerbread, 1 GHz Scorpion CPU,...

Display has poor viewing angles, The competition has dual-core CPUs, 1080p video, No smart dialing, Loudspeaker has below average performance, No DivX/XviD support, Memory card slot under the battery cover

Sony Ericsson is introducing new additions to their refreshed Android lineup as we speak. With newly found processing power, bigger high-res screens and HD video, even the new Xperia minis are children who will prey on their parents. The difference...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo preview: First look

 

Sony Ericsson is keen to start 2011 in style with strong additions to the XPERIA lineup to please every taste. The Arc is the one true flagship, the Pro is the business messenger and the Play is the gaming smartphone. What's in there for the Neo then?

Sony Ericsson Xperia neo Review

 

The Sony Ericsson Xperia neo aims to find the sweet spot between price and functionality, but in a world crowded with Android offerings, will the 3.7-inch screen enhanced with Mobile Bravia technology and an 8.1-megapixel sensor manage to stand out?...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo Reviewed

 

A review of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo, the last of the single core phones of this age, does it have what it takes to compete with the dual core big boys? We aim to find out in our review of the Neo.

As a smartphone, the Xperia Neo is a bit on the dumb side really, considering its price tag and high end mid-range pedigree, it should have been more capable, smarter and functional, almost all of its rivals in the same category are ahead of it.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo Review

 

While we've got our hearts firmly planted in the Xperia PLAY camp, what with its lovely selection of PLAY-specific applications we love so very much to review, its tough not to see the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo as simply the non-slider version of the...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo

 

These are both Android 2.3 devices, so they are bang up-to-date as far as the OS is concerned, unlike the old X10 which launched with an out-of-date version and has lagged behind in updates ever since. Sony Ericsson have added their own software...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo review

 

Sony Ericsson has been a little behind in the Android handset race. The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 took a long time to get to market and was somewhat disappointing. The Xperia X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro were better, but still very niche handsets with...

We’re impressed with the Neo, sure the design is very last year and the screen feels a little small, but it’s well built and equipped with the latest version of Android with some user-friendly Sony Ericsson additions. It’s a well-featured handset too,...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo review

 

Mid-range Sony Ericsson Android phone packs a photographic punch

Navigation is swift and judderless ; 8MP camera ; Connectivity is fantastic and the browser loads quickly ; Mini-HDMI port connection ; Comfortable and easy to use one-handed

The 3.7-inch screen somehow feels a little smaller than it should ; Colours aren't as bright as expected and don't pop on screen ; Sound quality is poor if not using the provided headset ; Video capture isn't as high quality as expected ; Aesthetics...

Sitting pretty in the hand, the small Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo smartphone and its 8.1-megapixel camera offer photographic skills far beyond what you'd expect for its 125g weight.
