Sony Xperia P Review

 

Assuming the update to Android 4.0 comes through for everyone with the P (some users have gotten it already), it could be a good option for those looking for a smaller handset.

The Xperia P is not a record-setting handset, though it’s WhiteMagic screen is certainly a winner in my book. The design is clean and the hardware is fast enough to satisfy most users. Assuming the update to Android 4.0 comes through for everyone with...

Sony Xperia P review: a solid, mid-sized smartphone waiting for Android 4.0

 

More InfoSony Xperia S reviewSony announces the Xperia P: Aluminum unibody, shipping Q2Sony pushing ICS to more devices next week, confirms

Superb screen performance outdoors ; Confident, solid design

Battery life disappoints ; Stale Gingerbread OS ; Mediocre processor ; Needs more storage space

The Xperia P stands behind the flagship S, but surprises with better build quality and a superbly visible screen. Placed squarely in the middle of Sony's smartphone line-up, its battery woes are the main concern.

Sony Xperia P review: Ironclad

 

Sealed in an aluminum unibody but still oozing the new NXT series style, the Sony Xperia P joins an elite club of metal-clad phones. And then there's the WhiteMagic screen to make it unique in the mobile world. In short, the Xperia P is one of...

Aluminum unibody ; Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support ; 3G with 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; Bright 4" 16M-color capacitive LED-backlit LCD touchscreen of qHD resolution (540 x 960 pixels) with Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine and WhiteMagic (fourth...

No Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box ; Display has poor blacks, high brightness levels result in poor color rendering and loss of contrast ; No memory card slot ; microSIM only ; Modest battery capacity of only 1305mAh results in mediocre...

In a not-so-far-fetched scenario, the Sony Xperia P struggles to emerge from the shadow of the Xperia S flagship and sees its sales eaten into by its own more affordable siblings, the Xperia U and sola. Many phones in a similar position would find it...

Sony Xperia P (unlocked) review

 

The smartphone market has grown ever tighter with even longtime electronics heavyweights finding it hard to create a hit. Sony, with its NXT line of handsets, clearly hopes that an aggressive blend of style and multimedia prowess will be enough to lure...

With a stunning, metal design, the Sony Xperia P has sophisticated style. It's also compact, boasts a bright screen, and connects to Sony's large music and video stores.

The Xperia P is held back by a weak CPU, outdated Android OS, and short battery life.

If beauty is your only priority, the Sony Xperia P will certainly satisfy, but power isn't this unlocked phone's forte.

Rock-solid build ; WhiteMagic display is a revelation ; High-quality camera

Outdated Android 2.3 OS ; Too much unwanted software ; So-so gaming performance

Were it endowed with Android 4.0 the Xperia P would be a true competitor

Sony Xperia P Review

 

The Sony Xperia P is the company's first smartphone to feature WhiteMagic technology. we are dealing with a reasonably priced mid-range Android handset with some pretty decent specs. The processor inside it has a couple of cores ticking at 1GHz, an...

Display with outstanding outdoor visibility ; Camera is really good ; Great in-call audio quality

Gingerbread at launch ; Display colors could have been more accurate

The Sony Xperia P is only an inch away from being the ultimate mid-range Android smartphone – packed with cool features, yet relatively inexpensive considering what you're getting in exchange. And what you get is a great camera, pretty interface,...

Sony Xperia P review: Pure love!

 

It is rare that I fall head over heels in love with a gadget. I fall in love with a gadget, yes. But not head over heels in love with one. The Sony Xperia P turned out to be one of those rare moments. It took a while for me to write the review as I put...

Instant photo shots ; Brilliant screen even under the sun ; Takes really nice videos even in challenging lighting ; Big internal storage

No external memory slot ; Unibody design means you can’t change the battery ; Photos could do better ; Still Gingerbread build. Hurry up with the ICS, Sony

The video capture is nothing short of amazing! I recorded an event a while back and was impressed at how the phone tries to compensate for the difficult lighting.
