Review Sony Xperia J Smartphone

 

Portfolio expansion. Sony is currently launching a torrent of new

Relatively inexpensive; Good workmanship; Long-lasting battery; Good screen; High contrast; Viewing angle stability; Memory expansion possible

Weak performance; Little working memory; Small internal memory; Does not render HD contents; Heavy bluish cast on pictures

The very long battery runtime that is almost on a par with the iPhone 5. It lasts much longer than competing models with the same hardware.

Sony Xperia J review: Junior league

 

A trimmed-down version of the Bond phone or a remake of the Xperia Arc, the Sony Xperia J knows looks are important to reasonable spenders, too, and doesn't get carried away with the level of equipment. What it offers over a very similarly equipped...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and dual-band UMTS support ; 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; 4.0" 16M-color TFT capacitive touchscreen of FWVGA resolution (480 x 854 pixels) at around 245 ppi ; Android OS v4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich ; 1 GHz Cortex-A5 CPU,...

Noticeable lag ; Non-hot-swappable microSD slot ; Image quality a bit of a letdown ; No hardware shutter key ; No DivX/XviD support ; Feeble loudspeaker

The styling of the company's flagship smartphone and a screen with more pixels than most people expect for the price give the Sony Xperia J a headstart over the competition. On the other hand, Sony had to make a lot of hard decisions to stay within...

Sony Xperia J Review

 

Sony has a good track record for delivering decent mid-range Android smartphones at very competitive price points, and the Xperia J is the latest handset to join the party. Its 4-inch display and beefy battery are among the features that make it stand...

Good display ; Relatively decent battery life ; Cheap

Performance is below par ; Horrible camera ; The lack of light sensor means you have to adjust the screen brightness manually ; Annoying physical buttons

Don't even bother, guys. We know that the Sony Xperia J seems like a worthy pick, especially since it carries a very reasonable price tag, but chances are you'll be disappointed by what you'll get in exchange. For a lower mid-range smartphone, the...

Can the Sony Ericsson inspired J jump in and make a splash?

Nice design ; Good battery life ; Decent price

Very laggy ; Poor camera ; Awful keyboard

If we're honest, we were a little disappointed with the Sony Xperia J. Sure, it looks great and will last a few days on one charge, but the sluggishness of the Android operating system makes us feel like we've gone back a few years.

The Xperia J has a slick design, but does it have the performance to match?

Good screen ; Long battery life ; Stylish design

Sluggish performance ; Poor camera ; Jelly Bean update won’t arrive until next year

Nevertheless, there are a few things missing. For example, it's annoying that Sony hasn't added quick switches for features such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS into the notifications menus -- something that most other manufacturers now do.

Despite its uncanny resemblance to the high-end Xperia T, the Xperia J offers an underwhelming user experience and is outclassed by similarly priced Android handsets.

Appealing design ; Decent screen ; Impressive battery life

Sluggish performance ; Terrible camera ; Not much internal storage

At first glance it's devilishly hard to tell the Xperia T and the Xperia J apart, but the difference in raw specifications and overall user experience is as vast as the quality gap between GoldenEye and Die Another Day -- while the former is a relative...

"USING THIS CELL CURRENTLY AWSOME FEATURES GOOD BATTERY LIFE VALUE FOR MANEY PRODUCT"

Great screen ; Long lasting battery ; Beautiful design

Underpowered for price ; Stuttery user interface ; Camera exposure issues

We find it hard to recommend the Xperia J despite its design, screen quality, camera and battery life. It doesn't do Android justice coupling mid-range positioning with a 1GHz single core processor. Even the highlights - screen quality for example -...

The Sony Xperia J brings the styling and software of Sony's top notch Xperia T phone downmarket. Like its Bond-backed bigger brother, it packs a curved plastic shell, but there's a smaller four-inch screen and a lower power 1GHz processor and five...

Sadly, the Sony Xperia J’s just not worth your time in late 2012: top notch phones that came out earlier this year, like the HTC One X and One S - and even last year’s Samsung Galaxy S2 - are around the same price on contract, and much more powerful,...
