Sony's BEST Mobile and the MIDRANGE KING
09 May 2013 By Anish Pimpley On flipkart.com

For about 2 yrs Sony's hold on the mid-range market has been strong and Xperia SP makes the 20-30k range a one horse race.nnHere is a concise review covering all grounds.nScores:(Compared with the best offerings)nScreen: 9/10 (mediocre viewing angles the rest is Splendid) nMusic : 9/10 (Not too loud but great music quality)nBattery: 10/10 (Will last around 2 days under average use)nPerformance*:11/10(You don't get an 11 for being just excellent) nBrowsing speed: 10/10(Beats One and S4 on many occasions) nCamera: 7.5/10 (good 8mp shooter but Don't expect miracles) nVideo recording :10/10 (impressive 30fps@1080p with HDR videos)nUI :9.5/10(mini-apps,Not bloated,Awesome lock-screen and looks)nSoftware: 9.25/10 (On 4.1.2,Will get 4.2 soon)nLooks:10/10 (Gorgeous looks and Premium Metal Body)nAesthetics:9/10 (Comfortable, little heavy cuz of METAL body)n................................................................nMORE ON PERFORMANCE*:nThis phone is unbelievably fast for it's price.nHere are some benchmarks:nn*NOTE:for B-pi:(Lower is better) nnPhone......General speed.....Gaming.........Net surfingn..............B-pi*.....LP........EC........B-mark.....VellamonXperia.SP...184......348.......58.0*......2263......2497*nGalaxy.S3...359......175.......41.3.......1247......1641nGalaxy.S4...132......788.......57.1.......2438......2060nNexus..4....431......213.......53.9.......1794......1310nnConclusions:nXperia SP is faster than s3 and Nexus 4 on all grounds.nXperia SP is THE BEST GAMING DEVICE and among the best Browsing devices on market right now and a battery king.n...............................................................nThis is attributed to the adreno 320 GPU that has to run on a smaller 720p screen.nnIf you are ready to settle for a mediocre camera (only IMAGING..recording is phenomenal), The Xperia SP is a NO-BRAINER.nnTo put it bluntly: THE COMPETITION DOESN'T STAND A CHANCE.

Bang For Buck Android Phone
06 May 2013 By Anand Kamath On flipkart.com

Have been using the phone for a little over a week and i have had the time of my life. nI got it on the day of launch on the 24th of april with Sony MW600 bluetooth headphones and a Class10 32gb sandisk sd card.nnPros=nGIGANTIC BATTERYnS4PRO ProcessornAdreno 320nBravia Engine2nLED StripnPrice PointnSD Card SlotnSizennCons=nBad CameranViewing AnglesnWeightnnFirst impression of the phone is killer, the black model looks like a class apart and the led strip is a cherry on the cake when it comes to looks. The Iconic power button is really tiny as compared to the emphasis they have on it, but thats not a problem, the build is just fine. The aluminum body does make it sturdy but heavier than many of the phones, however most of the phones are plasticy, so i wont hold it against Sony, i don't mind the extra 30 gms. nnThe screen is beautiful, saturated as a LCD must be, people shifting from AMOLEDS will be disappointed, but the excellent performance makes up for that. The viewing angles could have been better, not an issue when you are watching something, but sharing a video with your friends can be a problem because of the very limited viewing angle. nA lot of buyers have complained about a yellow tint on the screen. That is because, sony has set the default value to "warm" very easy to change it from Display>White balance. Take the color to blue and saturation to 30% you will get the whites to be white again and not yellowish. Make sure you do use a good scratch guard, since nothing is available in the market i have not put one yet and have already scratched the screen in one corner. nThe processor is a beast. It can eat any other device from 2012 and miserably insult it. Games like Call of mini zombies, Asphalt 7, Temple run oz work very smoothly. nScrolling between the screens and menu is absolutely stutter free. No lag at all, loading times for apps is lightning fast. Browsing is superior because of a good 4.6 screen with pixel density of 319 ppi, which is excellent. reading texts is very easy for the eyes and the brightness levels are good, but nothing to be spoken about, very decent for a 24K phone. The adreno 320 and bravia engine makes watching videos a delightful experience, the quality is way better than my full HD samsung smart tv. nThe multimedia features are excellent, the walkman UI is upgraded and if you are a music lover you will fall in love with it, the layout and simplicity, full marks to nSony. Make sure you buy good after market earphones the one provided are the worst, dont expect to ENJOY music with those.nThe sound quality is good, not great. internal speaker is good too, i would rate it 7/10 you can hear a little but of bass and great mids. You wont need portable speakers for a night out with your friends for sure. The led strip, adds a whole visual element to "listening" music, and is a welcome change. nnThe Album and Movie apps are pretty great too. Pictures look stunning on the app and you can resize the whole gallery with pinch zoom, exceptional to look at the transition animation. The Movie app is wonderful simple and will get you info about the songs and artists on one touch, directly from Wiki and tag cloud. Excellent feature called "Look up"n 10/10 for multimedianThe battery is superb. I have had to sit and hope for it run out so that i can complete 0-100 cycle 2-3 times. Guys it just wont die not for a good 18-20 hours of moderate usage. With heavy use it will easily last 12 hours make sure you dont push the screen above 60% brightness for optimum battery. nThe processor seems to be very efficient. nI seem to like the part that the battery does not come off as if you drop the phone all parts are not going to come popping out. FYI- The battery is replaceable at the service center, so there is nothing to worry in case of a problem.nnComing to the camera, yes its the only one drawback, but with right settings you can still extract a few good pictures with it. Sadly it does not have the capacity to replace your point and shoot camera, if you are looking for that. It will come in handy i would give it 6/10nMaybe an upgrade could extract more out of the sensor. There is too much noise indoors and low light, might as well not click at all. I am not a fan of flash photography, but the flash is powerful enough to help you in darker situations. nnOver all a great buy. If the camera had been a tad bit better i'd have given it 5 starts, but yeah there has to be a trade off somewhere since its not a flagship. Thats is business. nIn my opinion, this is a best buy right now and would be a sweet deal when the price drops to 23 it could well bring back the charm sony lost in the last few years. The device has immense potential and i sure am very glad that i purchased it.
