Review Sony Xperia E Dual Smartphone

Sony Xperia E review: E-lementary

 

Well, this sounds like an apt title really. The Sony Xperia E is among the cheapest packages on offer from Sony, second to only the Tipo. From the design theme of the first generation of Sony smartphones, to the familiar internals, the Sony Xperia E...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and -band UMTS support ; 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; 3.5" 256K-color capacitive TFT touchscreen of HVGA resolution (320 x 480) ; Android OS v4.1.1 Jelly Bean ; 1 GHz Cortex-A5 CPU, Adreno 200 GPU, Qualcomm MSM7227A...

Feeble chipset and uninspiring performance ; Mediocre screen quality ; Fixed-focus camera, No LED flash ; Video recording No front-facing camera

Like its dual-SIM counterpart, the Sony Xperia E offers quite the feature set for such a conservative price point. It's currently available for under €130 in most markets - about €10 less than the E dual, and is the one of the very few smartphones from...

Sony Xperia E dual review: Something extra

 

In 2012, Sony decided to alter its smartphone strategy and launched numerous affordable entry level smartphones, aiming to bring solid Android at prices close to those of some featurephones.

Dual-SIM (dual stand-by) ; Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and dual-band UMTS support ; 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; 3.5" 256K-color capacitive TFT touchscreen of HVGA resolution (320 x 480) ; Android OS v4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich ; 1 GHz Cortex-A5 CPU,...

Feeble chipset ; Poor screen quality ; Fixed-focus camera with poor image quality, No LED flash ; No front-facing camera ; Mediocre audio output

The Sony Xperia E dual offers quite the feature package for such a conservative price point. It's a very well built dual-SIM smartphone from a tier-one manufacturer that is powered by the really functional Android Ice Cream Sandwich.

Sony Xperia E Dual Review

 

The combination of a low price and dual-SIM capabilities has the possibility to make the Sony Xperia E Dual very popular in certain parts of the world. That is, as long as it's actually a decent phone. So, is it?

We did use the phone for a few days as our primary handset and found no flaws with the operating system or the user interface. The only complaint we have is that the user interface seems a tad sluggish or slow, but since we are used to faster phones,...

Sony Xperia E Review: First Look

 

Sony have introduced the Xperia E as a new entry-level handset with HD Voice plus data and power-saving tools for new smartphone users.

We’re still not sure of an exact arrival time for the Sony Xperia E, but it’ll be arriving within Q1 2013, which pins its touchdown anywhere between January and March.
