Sony Xperia sola review: Light 'em up

The Sony Xperia sola is a routine exercise in midrange smartphone making but Sony won't do without those if they're to quickly get where they want to be. This isn't about HD screens, quad-core CPUs and umpteen megapixel cameras - the Xperia sola goes by the 80-20 rule. That is, it tries to deliver 80% of the functionality for 20% of the price (okay, it's more like 50% here, but that's how technology works). Competition is hot right now and even some in-house battles will be unavoidable. read more →

  • Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support
  • 3.7" 16M-color capacitive touchscreen of Full WVGA resolution (854 x 480 pixels) with Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine; Floating touch display
  • Android OS v2.3.7 Gingerbread, planned Android 4.0 ICS update
  • Dual-core 1 GHz Cortex-A9 CPU, 512 MB RAM, NovaThor U8500 chipset
  • 5 MP autofocus camera with LED flash and geo-tagging, Multi Angle shot
  • No front-facing camera
  • No Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of box
  • Display has poor viewing angles
  • Stiff and unresponsive shutter key
  • Non user-replaceable battery

Sony Xperia sola Review

After putting it through its paces, we can conclude that the Sony Xperia sola is a well-made Android smartphone. If you are looking for a decent mid-range offering that gets you a good amount of bang for the buck, do not hesitate to check it out! We would definitely recommend it over smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy Ace plus or the Motorola MOTOLUXE. Alternatively, we have the HTC One V marketed at a similar price point, and even though it does not have the performance advantage of a dual-core processor, it comes with a superior display and a slightly better camera. read more →

  • Smooth performance
  • Pretty interface
  • Dual-core processor
  • Photo quality is average
  • Front-facing cam would have been nice
  • Gingerbread at launch

Sony Xperia Sola

The Sola is a solid smartphone with a good array of features, beyond the basics. Just be sure you can't buy the better Xperia S for the same price, before you commit.

Sony's Xperia Sola is a respectable mid-tier phone, with a good smattering of features and decent performance. Some that will argue that its 3.7-inch screen is too small for various smartphone tasks and the colour banding issues we've encountered may be a deal-breaker for others. read more →

  • Great UI and performance
  • NFC
  • Decent camera
  • Limited internal storage
  • Colour banding on LCD display
  • 3.7-inch screen may be too small for some

excellent

This mobile is so good because of its proceesing, camerra quality, 3d sorround system sound. its one negative point is its batery which contain only 1350 mah battery. The battery is not so poor but i think it could be 1500 mah. But other thins are excellent. I suggest for buyers no more thinks just go for it.
