Sony Xperia E Dual Review
1 May 2013
Summary: The Xperia E Dual is a great phone for those looking for an entry-level Android smartphone on a budget. The build quality is excellent and the performance is decent. The dual-SIM feature offers the option to keep your professional and personal life separate. In short, if you want a market-tested brand with the features of a smartphone, the Xperia E Dual Android phone is a good choice.
Conclusion: Like its dual-SIM counterpart, the Sony Xperia E offers quite the feature set for such a conservative price point. It's currently available for under €130 in most markets - about €10 less than the E dual, and is the one of the very few smartphones from top-tier manufacturers that run Jelly Bean in this segment. Despite the less than stellar hardware, the Xperia E provides performance that isn't too bothering with little lag and acceptable app loading times.
Pros: Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and -band UMTS support, 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, 3.5" 256K-color capacitive TFT touchscreen of HVGA resolution (320 x 480), Android OS v4.1.1 Jelly Bean, 1 GHz Cortex-A5 CPU, Adreno 200 GPU, Qualcomm MSM7227A chipset, 512 MB of RAM, 2GB of user-accessible built-in storage (4GB total), microSD slot (32GB supported), 3.15 MP fixed-focus camera, geo-tagging, VGA video @ 30fps, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Wi-Fi hotspot, GPS with A-GPS, Accelerometer an...
Cons: Feeble chipset and uninspiring performance, Mediocre screen quality, Fixed-focus camera, No LED flash, Video recording No front-facing camera
Summary: If you want a smartphone that doesn't cost much, then the Xperia E looks like a good choice. Sony is in danger of overcrowding the budget Android market by releasing a large number of very similar phones. Picking out the best model isn't easy, as they are very similar but have different strengths and weaknesses. The Xperia E has the advantage of Android Jelly Bean, a memory card slot and strong battery life. Its weakness is the sub-standard camera.
Conclusion: The Sony Xperia E dual offers quite the feature package for such a conservative price point. It's a very well built dual-SIM smartphone from a tier-one manufacturer that is powered by the really functional Android Ice Cream Sandwich. ICS is no longer the best Android out there, but it gives you pretty much everything you may need for your daily routine.
Pros: Dual-SIM (dual stand-by), Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and dual-band UMTS support, 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, 3.5" 256K-color capacitive TFT touchscreen of HVGA resolution (320 x 480), Android OS v4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, 1 GHz Cortex-A5 CPU, Adreno 200 GPU, Qualcomm MSM7227A chipset, 512 MB of RAM, 2GB of user-accessible built-in storage (4GB total), microSD slot (32GB supported), 3.15 MP fixed-focus camera, geo-tagging, VGA video @ 30fps, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Wi-Fi hot...
Cons: Feeble chipset, Poor screen quality, Fixed-focus camera with poor image quality, No LED flash, No front-facing camera, Mediocre audio output
Conclusion: This time, it seems that the company is focusing more on the value seeker. That is why the brand endeavored to make it completely user-friendly. The price range is like the cherry on the cake counting the enticing features inside this small box of happiness. So it won?t be wrong to say that its users will always have a smile on their face!
Excerpt: Im Sony Xperia E dual Test fällt nach dem Auspacken als Erstes auf, dass kaum ein Unterschied zwischen dem Xperai E dual und dem “normalen” Xperia E mit nur einer SIM-Karte zu erkennen ist. Damit liegt das E dual im aktuellen Trend, bei dem immer mehr Hersteller ihre erfolgreichen Modelle quasi identisch auch als Dual-SIM ..
Excerpt: Sony Xperia E er en billig smartphone fra Sony, der passer perfekt til førstegangskøbere af smartphones. Du skal naturligvis være opmærksom på, at der - set ud fra et specifikationsmæssigt synspunkt - er langt til toppen, men den passer særdeles godt til eksempelvis ældre eller børn.
Conclusion: Il Sony Xperia E è uno smartphone di fascia medio-bassa destinato a chi cerca l’essenzialità unita a un design comunque elegante e accattivante. Il telefono in sé non presenta caratteristiche particolari da menzionare, tranne forse l'audio, che resta sempre il cavallo di battaglia di tutti i Sony. Per il resto, processore lento, fotocamera scadente, versione Android vecchia e autonomia al limite.
