Notebookcheck's Best of January 2013 ? Smartphone and Tablet Edition

 

Slow start. December 2012 was led by the search engine giant Google. The beginning of the New Year was however a bit quieter. Tablets from some low-cost suppliers found their way to our test lab and presented very mixed results. January was themed...

The offered concept. A coherent overall package for a midrange smartphone although the screen's low resolution spoils the fun

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...

Sony Xperia J review

 

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

The Sony Xperia J is the smaller and cheaper brother to James Bond's Xperia T, but don't expect to find this handset mingling with scantily clad women - the Xperia J is far more reserved, less flamboyant, happier to stay out of the limelight and just...
