Sony XPERIA P
Advantages: Great camera , loads of power under the hood ,awesome build quality , brilliant display
Disadvantages: only micro sim support ,poor battery life and no card slot (limited memory)
I recently bought the Sony Xperia p and it's just too awesome to use !!!!! Although this is a mid range smartphone , sony has packed in a lot of amazing features and made it join the elite club of smartphones .
Design and build quality
When you look at the phone, you will definitely fall in love with it!!!!! Thanks to the aluminum unibody construction and sleek design . I like the design of the phone . Its handy and fits perfectly in my palm . I dint like the dimensions of the phone as its length is greater than its breadth unlike other smartphones which have a normal length to breadth ratio . The illuminated touch buttons at the bottom are easy to use but sometimes become unresponsive (you have to touch it twice or thrice to perform the action ) .
The Xperia p boasts a qHD display with mobile bravia engine. The display is stunningly awesome with a resolution of 540*960 pixels and 16m colors. The 4 inch capacitive multi-touch screen is ultra responsive and offers enough room to swipe, flip, pinch and perform other multi touch gestures with ease.
The 8mp autofocus camera captures high resolution (3264*2448 pixels) photos and does a pretty decent video recording at 30 frames per second (1080p) .The video quality is sluggish when you capture fast moving objects . It also has a secondary front facing VGA camera which is used for 3G video calls . Some of the other notable features include geo tagging , smile shutter , image stabilization and face detection . The phone also has a HDMI port .
OS and Technical data
The Sony Xperia P runs the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system with Sony's Timescape UI . The Timescape UI is impressive and offers more fluidness to the operating system . The phone packs in a Dual core 1GHZ cortex A9 chip which can handle any application and multitask with ease . There's also a 1GB RAM complementing the processor while handling high power applications . I played a couple of graphic rich games like Asphalt , Temple run & Max Payne and i could hardly find any hiccup or lag during the gameplay. The headset also plays a host to lots of other features like GPS,Accelerometer ,Proximity sensor and NFC .
Although the phone claims to have a 1300mAh battery , I'm very disappointed with the battery life . The phone clocks just 9 hrs on extensive internet usage and lasts a day with moderate usage .
Summary: Go in for this phone of you want a stylish premium smartphone with a great camera . Definitely BANG
