Sony Xperia SP review: lights, camera, performance


Sony's Xperia Z took the company into the big leagues this year: the company finally has a handset that turns heads and can compete with the established

Well-built, attractive design ; Good all-around camera performance ; Capable performer

Underwhelming display ; Only 8GB of internal storage ; Terrible WiFi range

An understated, but good-looking LTE device that delivers outstanding performance at a fair price.

Sony Xperia SP review: SPlendid


Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support, 3G with 42Mbps HSDPA and 5.8 Mbps HSUPA; 100Mbps LTE, 4.6" 16M-color 720p TFT capacitive touchscreen with Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 and Corning Gorilla Glass protection, Android OS v4.1.2 Jelly Bean, Dual-core 1.7 GHz...

Screen has mediocre viewing angles, Not particularly slim and quite heavy, Non user-replaceable battery, Will compete with a number of quad-core smartphones

The midrange Android market has long been a Sony stronghold, and is becoming ever more enticing with offerings like the Xperia SP. We are looking at a more than reasonably powered and competitively priced smartphone with an HD screen, whose robust...

Sony Xperia SP Review


The selection of mid-range Android smartphones is vast, which makes picking the best model a delicate task. Well, Sony wants to spare you the effort of browsing through all available options by introducing a compromise-free handset that seems to have...

Handles 3D games flawlessly ; Great call quality ; Rich in multimedia features ; Decent battery life

Not the best 8MP camera we've ever seen

There is no such thing as a perfect smartphone, and the Sony Xperia SP won't be the one to break that rule. However, looking at its pros and cons after testing it extensively, we can confidently conclude that its a mid-range smartphone worthy of...

With impressive internals and a unique design, is Sony's new mid-ranger as good as it appears on paper?Once an underdog in the Android world, Sony Mobile put out a strong showing earlier in...

Overall still photo quality from the Xperia SP’s camera is good across the board, with a few quirks. In particular, we were concerned to see a fair bit of noise in most still images, even in well-lit conditions. And it some images it was evident that...

Enter the Sony Xperia SP, a mid-ranger that looks great, at least on paper. But will customers agree? As usual, we take a look at the Sony Xperia SP's design, specifications, features, and software.

Sony Xperia SP Review


While Sony has focussed all its energies towards the flashier Xperia Z, they could have had gem on their hands with the Xperia SP. It surprised us with the sophistication of its build, and its rather capable hardware. Despite that, its pricing is still...

Very well built, Text readability is brilliant on the display, Translucent bar below the display is a neat visual element, Consistent performance as a primary phone, Battery will last a day and a half under medium usage

Very disappointing camera, particularly in low light, Tad on the heavier side

An aluminium build, clean UI and good performance make the Xperia SP one of the best phones in its class


The Sony Xperia SP is a relatively inexpensive mid-range Android phone that boasts an aluminium frame, a 4.6in screen and 4G connectivity. It has a lacklusture display but its solid aluminium build, clean UI and good all-round performance make it one...

Solid aluminium frame, Clean, intuitive UI, Good performance

Sony Xperia SP review


The Sony Xperia SP is the mid-range sibling to the high-end Xperia Z but what does it offer? T3 went hands-on for a closer look...

Solid, classy design ; Great battery life ; Good value

Average camera ; Divisive notification bar ; Not small

In terms of design, the SP isn't quite as slick as the Xperia Z, but then it won't cost you as much and the inclusion of the some of the flaghship phone's features - such as the Battery Stamina Mode and the Bravia Engine 2-powered screen - is good...
