  • Sony Xperia SP review: SPlendid

    It took some time but Sony had the big comeback many have been waiting for. The Xperia Z is selling well and we suspect it`s been the driver for turning the company`s fortunes around in the first quarter of the year. It`s now time to carry that momentum over to the midrange and the Xperia SP looks like the right phone for the job. Sony Xperia SP official photos A nicely spec`d screen and an adequately powered chipset come together in a beautiful ...

    Verdict: 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 pe...

    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 Galaxy and One brands. The Z and its plainer ZL variant weren`t the only bullets in the Xperia revolver for 2013, though. Back in March, the company announced the Xperia SP and Xperia L handsets to fall in line behind its flagship. While the L is undoubtedly targeted at the low end of the Android...

    The market for mid-level handsets is exploding, and manufacturers are hurrying to offer even more choice for those on a stricter budget, so the Xperia SP brings a mid-range price with a lot of technology borrowed from its bigger, Xperia Z, brother. Sony has been busy since the split from Ericsson and has put out an ever-increasing number of Xperia models to try and capture customers at every conceivable price point and specs sheet. The latest is ...

    Pros: Attractive aluminium design, Full-featured camera, Media apps are a highlight, Impressive HD screen,

    Cons: Average processor, Low storage space, Battery drains quickly, Redundant Sony online services,

    Verdict: The excellent camera and range of connectivity that includes NFC and 4G go hand-in-hand with a great design and a screen size that will be just right for someone that doesn`t want a high-end 5-inch monster....

    Far too often, flagship smartphones like the Xperia Z and HTC One tend to score far more attention and interest from technology writers and enthusiasts than their mid-range and low-end counterparts. However, out in the real world, these high-end devices that represent the best that a handset maker has to offer often aren’t the ones that the vast majority of people actually end up laying down (a large chunk of) their hard-earned cash for.

    Once an underdog in the Android world, Sony Mobile put out a strong showing earlier in the year with smartphones like the Xperia Z and Xperia ZL. With these devices the Japanese manufacturer seeks to differentiate itself with high-quality materials and outstanding designs. So it’s interesting to see that in its new mid-ranger, the Xperia SP, Sony is looking back to its smartphone design heritage, resurrecting ideas like the transparent elem...

    Pros: Attractive design, good ergonomics, strong battery life and expandable storage. Impressive camera for the price. LTE on the cheap.

    Cons: Screen is a fingerprint magnet and suffers from poor viewing angles. Occasional software lag. Sony UI is starting to look a bit stale.

    Verdict: The Xperia SP is a solid mid-ranger, but we’d hesitate to praise it anymore than that. It has the beginnings of a really compelling mid-level smartphone, and we shouldn’t understate the importance of getting an LTE-cap...
