Sony Xperia U review: Fun united

So, Sony know what they're doing in the midrange. The Xperia U is so comfortably ahead of similarly priced smartphones that it's one of the easiest to recommend.

And as if that's not enough, the Xperia U is perhaps the most affordable dual-core droid. It's the cheapest way to get a FWVGA display too, and the build and finish are worthy of a flagship. You wouldn't normally expect to get anything else on this kind of budget, but you are in for another surprise. read more →

  • Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support
  • 3.5" 16M-color capacitive touchscreen of Full WVGA resolution (854 x 480 pixels) with Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine
  • 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 geotagging, Multi Angle shot
  • Limited storage with no expansion options
  • No Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of box
  • Some competitors are slimmer

Sony Xperia U review: a little slice of Android that punches above its weight

While the Xperia U might appear to be the next one down from the P, better battery life and general performance make this a worthy consideration if you have an eye for a smaller phone.

We admit that we've spent a lot of time talking about what this phone is not. So, now we'll sum up exactly what it is. The Sony Xperia U is a good phone, if you are looking for something a little smaller. It is perfectly capable for most daily-use situations. read more →

  • Smooth performance
  • Bright screen
  • Comfortable to use
  • Limited storage space
  • Old Gingerbread OS
  • Some minor software quirks

Sony's small Android smartphone offers a dual-core processor and plenty of charm

If you're not caught up in today's obsession with enormous display sizes, the Sony Xperia U is a great choice of smartphone.

It has all the speed, power and features of the larger Android phones that cost two or three times as much - your only compromise here is seeing it all through a smaller display. read more →

  • Solid construction
  • Clear display
  • Fast, smooth Android
  • Clever Facebook integration
  • Nice music player
  • Awful 720p video
  • No SD card slot
  • Only 4GB storage
  • Browser looks dated
  • Stiff camera button

Sony Xperia U Review

Sony has cut a few corners to achieve the very affordable price of the Xperia U , like the lack of oleophobic coating and microSD slot, but these are still overshadowed by the cool design and the contemporary specs like a dual-core processor and screen with good pixel density. Where it really dropped the ball, however, is the camera module - we’ve seen better 5MP shooters in Sony handsets dating back to 2010, especially in the video capture department. read more →

  • Very good specs and design for the price
  • Two seconds sleep-to-snap camera mode
  • Good call quality
  • Strong and clear loudspeaker
  • Transparent strip illuminates with different colors
  • Subpar video quality
  • No microSD slot
  • Lack of oleophobic coating

Sony Xperia U Review

The Xperia U is decent, but we can’t look past the two glaring issues. The first is the screen: maybe we’re nitpicking, but we wouldn’t be able to live with it for an extended period of time without becoming extremely irritated. Secondly, the omission of a microSD card slot, especially with the limited internal storage space, is a crying shame. Everyone may be quick to promote the cloud for content storage, but high-speed internet isn’t as ubiquitous as some may think.

What saves the phone is the price: there’s really not much else out there at this price bracket that combines the specs with overall performance. read more →
