Sony Xperia Neo Review: In Depth
28 March 2014
Conclusion: If you’re in the market for an inexpensive phone with a good camera then Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Neo does the job and then some. We like the integration of Facebook, particularly the tagged picture syncing feature and how you can organise your apps into handy folders on the touchscreen.
Summary: A great phone for those not yet ready to take the step up to the enormous 4″ handsets, the Xperia Neo is solid, glitch-free in use, with a very good camera that won’t embarrass you when you upload the results to your desktop. It’s not an exciting dual-core beast, just a reliable, usable, everyday smartphone.
Conclusion: The Xperia neo comes with a retail price of just above $500 in Europe. For nearly $150 less than the Xperia arc , it delivers most of the functionality of Sony Ericsson's flagship including an along with outstanding calling and audio quality. Unfortunately, the camera doesn't meet Sony Ericsson's promise of superior low-light quality and is rather average.
Pros: Refined, signature design, Outstanding call/audio quality, Punchy colors with the Mobile Bravia engine
Cons: Sub-par camera, Disappointing battery life, Below average sunlight legibility
Excerpt: Smartphones might work well as communication and internet devices, but camera performance typically isn’t strong. Sony Ericsson seeks to change this with the Xperia Neo, a phone packed with Sony CyberShot technology and ambitions of replacing the need for a standalone camera. Sony Ericsson's customisations of Android are very nice, including a pinch to zoom that consolidates all of your widgets on the one screen.
Pros: Above average came, ra performance, Great voice quality, Nice Android customisations
Cons: Chunky design, Low-light performance not up to expectations
Excerpt: When Sony Ericsson launched the Xperia Arc earlier this year it showed the smart phone world that it was still a force to be reckoned with. The Xperia Neo keeps many of the features, but drops a few of the more expensive elements so it's still a quality phone, but at a more affordable price.

Summary: The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo can't claim the XPERIA Arc's unique design, or the XPERIA Play's dedicated gaming controls, but it offers a similar feature set including an excellent camera and a HDMI-out port.
Pros: Concaved design, Excellent camera, HDMI-out port
Cons: Plastic build feels like a cheap toy, Poor default keyboard, Thin external buttons
Excerpt: The Xperia neo is an inexpensive Android 2.3 phone which is designed for imaging; the 8-megapixel camera uses Sony Ericsson's new Exmor R sensor tech, which moves the wiring to the back of the sensor and so frees up space for more light to reach the sensor's surface. Pictures taken with the camera are excellent. While many phones' cameras produce murky, lifeless shots, the neo captures colours accurately, and images had plenty of detail.
