REVIEW: Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro Android Smartphone

Mobile Magazine
12 August 2013
  • Conclusion: Sony Ericsson is a big company, to be sure, but it’s still not among the top-tier when it comes to Android smartphones. That upper level is probably still held by HTC and Samsung, possibly with an honorable mention to Motorola. The Xperia pro continues with that kind of tradition. It’s not going to win any awards and it’s not going to floor you with its performance. What it is going to provide you is a more than adequate Android experience at a reasonable price.

Sony Ericsson Xperia pro Review

29 April 2012
  • Summary: The Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro (Now Sony) melds the best of both worlds by offering power users the full size and specs of their high-end line with the full slideout QWERTY keyboard only previously seen in their mid-range offerings.
  • Pros: Comfortable and well-backlit physical keyboard, Good call quality, Strong and clear loudspeaker
  • Cons: Mediocre 8-megapixel camera and 720p video, Too small and fidgety power/lock button, volume rocker and camera shutter key

Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro Android Smartphone Review

29 February 2012
  • Excerpt: With Sony Ericsson as a company undergoing a slight change, one would expect their devices to do so as well. Sadly that’s not the case, however, there never really was a general cause of concern for users to take up issue with too many of SE’s devices with regards to functionality or style. The same can be said about the newly launched Xperia Pro. Here’s a closer look.

Sony-Ericsson Xperia Pro

24 February 2012
  • Summary: Verdict A good handset, but no more Sony-Ericsson and better contenders make it a hard sell.
  • Pros: Full-sized keyboard is a plus, good performance overall.
  • Cons: Plastic finish lacks the luxury touch.

Sony Xperia Mini Pro Review: In Depth

23 February 2012
  • Conclusion: The Xperia Mini Pro deserves to be a success, it’s beautifully designed and well built, combining the convenience of a touchscreen for browsing with  a full Qwerty.  It's not perfect - the screen size and resolution means it isn’t probably the best choice for movie fans and the HD video camera is a disappointment.

Review: Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro — unforgettable it ain’t

21 February 2012
  • Excerpt: When I first got my hands on the Xperia Pro, I thought I was going to be pondering the merits of a slide-out keyboard in a touch-screen world. Then I started playing with it and was overwhelmed by how unimpressive it is. Sure it packs some serious fire power, but it just doesn’t leave an impression. It’s a bit like that nice couple next door, with their two mid-sized sedans.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro Review

10 February 2012
  • Conclusion: The Xperia Pro is a good buy if you are after an Android smartphone with a hardware keyboard. It has got a 3.7-inch display and a good keyboard. Music playback is excellent, while video playback and camera performances are average. There’s Stereo FM radio and a 1,500mAh battery to keep things going. In my standard setup, the Xperia Pro needs charging before the end of the day. Sometimes twice. It does not shine brightly, and that’s no issue. It is not a flagship.

  • Conclusion: I believe that the type of people who would buy this type of phone would be people buying it as a gift for a child if the price was right, and younger people themselves who maybe can’t afford an iPhone or something similar, other than that I can’t really see businesses opting for this instead of blackberry devices any time soon.

  • Conclusion: The Sony Ericsson Xperia pro is the rare sight of a good-looking Android 2.3 Gingerbread phone with a side-sliding physical keyboard, which is on top of that very comfortable to type on. It pays to optimize your handsets for a specific chipset, too, and the 1GHz Snapdragon S2 processor that runs the Xperia line proves again that it is more than enough to run the pretty Timescape UI flawlessly.
  • Pros: Comfortable and well-backlit physical keyboard, Good call quality, Strong and clear loudspeaker
  • Cons: Mediocre 8-megapixel camera and 720p video, Too small and fidgety power/lock button, volume rocker and camera shutter key

Sony Ericsson Xperia pro review: Social Inc.

GSM Arena
18 November 2011
  • Conclusion: So, the company's squad of droid smartphones is now complete with a QWERTTY messenger. It's the kind of phone that can enjoy demand from both business users and social networking fans. The entire Xperia lineup was thoroughly refreshed and ready to offer the Android experience to users of all backgrounds and ages. It was recently confirmed too that all the company’s recent smartphones would get the Ice-cream Sandwich update.
  • Pros: Four-row slide-out QWERTY keyboard, Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support, 3G with 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.8 Mbps HSUPA, 3.7" 16M-color capacitive LED-backlit LCD touchscreen of FWVGA resolution (480 x 854 pixels) with Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine, Android OS v2.3.4 Gingerbread, 1 GHz Scorpion CPU, Adreno 205 GPU, Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 chipset, 512 MB RAM, 8 MP autofocus camera with LED flash and geotagging, 720p video recording @ 30fps with continuous autofocus and stereo...
  • Cons: Display has poor viewing angles, No smart dialing, microSD card slot is not hot-swappable, Battery cover is a hassle to open, Slider a bit wobbly, Black case extremely prone to fingerprints
