Sony Xperia V review: Bond’s wetsuit

 

It won't be long before those full-HD five-inchers start stealing the show and the older Xperia generation should be preparing for life in their shadow. It doesn't mean though that the Xperia V cannot hope for a good time.

Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support ; 3G with 42.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; LTE Cat3 DL 100 Mbps UL 50 Mbps ; 4.3" 16M-color capacitive LED-backlit Reality LCD touchscreen of 720p resolution (720 x 1280 pixels) with Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine 2;...

No JellyBean at launch ; Relatively modest battery capacity ; Video recording fails to impress ; No hardware shutter key ; Comes across as overpriced

We're obviously reviewing the Xperia V at a time when the eyes of the Sony faithful are set elsewhere. It's been a year since the Japanese went solo and, although they've blown hot and cold thus far, they seem to have found their pace. With a couple of...

Sony Xperia Z - The 5-inch Contender

 

The Sony Xperia Z is Sony Mobile's first in many areas - first quad-core, first 5.0-inch device, first full HD display, first to support HDR video recording and so on. Will the latest Android 4.1 flagship device revive the company's flogging sales? We...

Adequate 1920p display ; Classy design ; Buttery performance ; Dust and water resistance ; Almost Vanilla Android UI

Major fingerprint magnet ; Below average battery life ; 13-megapixel camera not up to expectations

The Sony Xperia Z might very well be the best Sony Mobile phone thus far - powerful with a speedy quad-core Snapdragon processor, solid build quality, angular design and a competent 5-inch display. Of course, this is topped with LTE and NFC...

Sony Xperia V review

 

A water-resistant, 4G capable smartphone

Decent screen ; Playstation certified ; NFC ; 4G

ICS not the slickest ; Not available in UK ; Waterproof worry

The Sony Xperia V is a respectable mid- to high-end smartphone and as long as the 4G connectivity doesn't drain the battery and the water resistance tag doesn't let us down in our full review, it looks set to be a strong contender in the LTE market.

The specs and waterproofing of the Xperia V make it very difficult to fault this phone. We might mention that Sony includes the Android navigation buttons (Back, Home and Running apps) in the screen itself, effectively eating into the 4.3" screen real...
