Sony Xperia P review: Ironclad

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 hard to rise to the challenge. Not the Sony Xperia P. This metal-clad warrior wants to be the maker of its own future.

One is a good camera that can stand its own against pricier devices and will satisfy most people's need for still imaging and video capture. read more →

  • 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

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

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.

The Xperia P is a confident, middle-sized handset, but new smartphone shoppers may find it difficult to spend £340 (around $530; off-contract) on it. While the Xperia P has more design charm and better build quality, the Xperia S is already being substantially discounted in the UK, with a grander camera, larger screen and more capable processor. read more →

  • Superb screen performance outdoors
  • Confident, solid design
  • Battery life disappoints
  • Stale Gingerbread OS
  • Mediocre processor
  • Needs more storage space

A feature-packed mid-range Android smartphone

A handset that will have owners planning for the future, the Sony Xperia P is packed with enough high-end specs to ensure it remains one of the most impressive devices within its price bracket for a long time to come, and will keep users appeased and free from handset envy for the foreseeable future.

Add to this the inbuilt NFC capabilities - a feature that is to become increasingly prominent in the near future - and the Sony Xperia P quickly marks itself out as a standout performer that is bridging the expectations and blurring the boundaries of mid and high-end handsets. read more →

  • Sleek, unique design
  • 1GHz dual-core CPU
  • 4-inch display
  • Impressive rear camera
  • NFC capabilities
  • Sloppy front camera
  • Scratch-prone body
  • Poor multi-tabbed browsing
  • Stiff camera button
  • Fiddly micro SIM holder

Sony Xperia P Review

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, snappy dual-core processor, and one of the brightest smartphone displays to date, all encased inside of a solid aluminum package. The only things that drag the smartphone down are its imperfect color representation and the aging Android 2.3 Gingerbread. read more →

  • Display with outstanding outdoor visibility
  • Camera is really good
  • Great in-call audio quality
  • Gingerbread at launch
  • Display colors could have been more accurate

Sony Xperia P review

Despite needing a few improvements, the Sony Xperia P is one of the better handsets from Sony this year.

Strangely, the Sony Xperia P is a more compelling device than the Xperia S, especially when it comes to build and battery life. Also, though the screen resolution is not as high as on the Xperia S, it remains bright and vibrant and you'll have no problems using it outdoors. read more →

With one negative point stands a tower of fabulous functionalities.

Looks astonishingly fabulous. Music output is top notch. Aluminium back makes it strong, yet it looks so delicate that you'll hardly take any chances and will take extra care in advance - which is worth the looks.
OS can be upgraded to ICS. Plus the additional sony's interface is amazing. The themes are just magical.
Call quality is normal. Internet speed is better than the other phones in this price.
The best part is the display, its more than amazing - watch movies, or view images, or play games, this one leaves no stones unturned.
The inbuild capacity is around 16gigs which as per me is good enough. You don't play all the games all together, once you are bored with a game uninstall and get a new one. If the garbage is collected properly, space shouldn't be an issue.
The RAM, 1GB - again if the garbage is collected properly, even this is not an issue, my phone has never hung, nor any app had faced a slow down yet. But to get this performance I regularly stop the unwanted services and kill running processes that are not required.
The worst part - Battery. This one part can make you dislike this wonderful device. It requires charging atleast 2 times in a day. So if you travel a lot or are away from an electric source for entire day and are a decent user with 1-2 hours calling, an hour of internet browsing with 24*7 sync on you email and chat accounts, be sure that you'll end up with a dead battery before you reach home at the end of the day. There are many ways to reduce battery consumption, but its a drop in the ocean.
Being aware of the battery issue I yet chose this phone because the other tremendous features cannot be side lined just because of battery - I use a travel charger. The saviour is the original sony charger, it actually fuels up the phone to 100% within an hour. Hence its worth going for this phone if you don't mind shelling some extra bucks on a travel charger.

  • Processor
  • Sony Charger - for ultra fast charging
