Sony Ericsson Xperia pro review: Social Inc.

 

Sony Ericsson can sit back and call it a job done. The last of the new Xperias is on the shelves and the impressive lineup gives them plenty of reasons to look forward to the holiday season.

Four-row slide-out QWERTY keyboard ; Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support ; 3G with 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.8 Mbps HSUPA ; 3.7" 16M-color capacitive LED-backlit LCD touchscreen of FWVGA resolution (480 x 854 pixels) with Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine ; Android OS...

Display has poor viewing angles ; No smart dialing ; microSD card slot is not hot-swappable ; Battery cover is a hassle to open ; Slider a bit wobbly ; Black case extremely prone to fingerprints

So, the company's squad of droid smartphones is now complete with a QWERTTY messenger. It's the kind of phone that can enjoy demand from both business users and social networking fans. The entire Xperia lineup was thoroughly refreshed and ready to...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro - Write Like a Pro

 

Sleek smartphones. PlayStation-certified Android devices. Sony Ericsson's Xperia smartphones are certainly quite varied. If you're wondering how the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro and its physical QWERTY keyboard fare, this review will shed some light.

Above average battery life ; Decent imaging quality from Exmor sensor ; Ease of use with 3.7-inch display

Stiff and flushed physical keys ; Odd placement of power and camera buttons

The thing about Android, is how manufacturers like Sony Ericsson can go full steam ahead with customizations. And that holds true for the Xperia Pro. Besides the usual Sony Ericsson user interface customization, the most identifiable being the...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro Review

 

Good, but not great.

Good camera, Decent audio quality, Good Timescape UI

Chunky compared to other smartphones, Terrible viewing angles, microSD not hot swappable

The phone runs the 2.3.4 Gingerbread variant of the Android operating system which has a few updates such as 3D sweep panorama and T9 with swipe. It uses Sony’s Bravia engine to sharpen images and improve photo quality and it does a great job here when...

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2.3 devices, so they are bang up-to-date as far as the OS is concerned, unlike the old X10 which launched with an out-of-date version and has lagged behind in updates ever since.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...
