Sony Xperia E1 Smartphone Review

Notebookcheck
14 June 2014
  • Summary: It's got the beat. Sony's Xperia E1 is a Walkman with many settings options. It comes in a flashy plastic casing, a 4-inch TFT screen, and an entry-level SoC from Qualcomm besides 4 GB of flash memory. An included headset reinforces the portable jukebox claim.
  • Pros: Sharp and responsive screen, Speech quality, Headset included, Battery power saving mechanisms + runtimes, Build, Though the speaker is very loud..., The good music player with direct access via a dedicated button, and the battery runtime.
  • Cons: ...it soon overdrives and is treble-heavy, Tight internal storage, Not App2SD capable, Moderate camera unit, No front-facing camera, Slightly cheap-looking plastic, but very robust, A higher-quality appearance and a better camera.

  • Summary: Having a Walkman on board is this phone’s strong suit, so if you have 1300 EGP to spare and you were on the hunt for a mid-range Android smartphone and you’re nostalgic for the days when Walkmans were in, then definitely consider the Xperia E1
  • Pros: Has a built in Walkman, decent performance, Android JellyBean and cheap price.
  • Cons: Basic display, no front camera and limited internal memory.

  • Summary: Having a walkman on board is this phone’s strong suit, so if you have 1300 EGP to spare, two SIM cards and you were on the hunt for a mid-range Android smartphone and you’re nostalgic for the days when walkmans were in, then definitely consider the Xperia E1.
  • Pros: Has a built in Walkman, decent performance, Android JellyBean, dual SIM and cheap price.

  • Summary: Sony's made a valiant effort for the low-end market with its E1, but it just doesn't match up to either of Motorola's budget blowers. Even compared to the cheap Moto E, Sony's low-cost smartphone doesn't quite match-up, while you can even find the superior Moto G on sale for around the same price if...

  • Summary: The Sony Xperia E1 is an excellent budget smartphone and a big step up from last year's Xperia E . It's compact but with a good-sized screen. It has a moderately fast processor, sufficient memory and outstanding battery life. If there's one flaw, it's the camera.

Sony Xperia E1 review: Enter Walkman

GSM Arena
15 April 2014
  • Conclusion: What's not to love about well-made affordable smartphones with a distinct feature that's not only marketable but adds character too? We don't mind aggressively priced either. Which the Sony Xperia E1 clearly is.
  • Pros: Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and -band UMTS support, 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, 4" 16M-color capacitive TFT touchscreen of WVGA resolution (480 x 800), Android OS v4.3 Jelly Bean, KitKat confirmed but not yet scheduled, Dual-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 CPU, Adreno 302 GPU, Qualcomm SM8210 chipset,...
  • Cons: Fixed-focus camera, No LED flash, Poor video recording, No front-facing camera, 512 MB of RAM

2 April 2014
  • Conclusion: All in all, the Sony Xperia E1 turns out to be a device that is affordable, yet offering an above average performance for its class. It will appeal to music lovers with its dedicated key for controlling music playback, but it does not offer much in terms of loudspeaker sound quality.
  • Pros: New 28nm Snapdragon 200 chip is fast for its class, Dedicated Walkman key is a nice touch for music lovers, LED light below display adds a fun effect, Xperia E1 is very compact and lightweight, Sony’s skin looks good and works smoothly, Phone support expandable storage via microSD cards
  • Cons: Underwhelming display with washed out colors, poor contrast and awful viewing angles, Camera is sub-par, sorely lacking in detail, Video recording borders with unusable, appears choppy, Phone is made of very cheap plastic, 512MB of RAM (and no KitKat on board) limit multi-tasking

  • Summary: Introduction It has been a long struggle for Sony to match with its competitors. The phones offered were never at par with competition with respect to configurations and other specifications. That perception is slowly changing with a couple of top class models launched by Sony.
  • Pros: Good Build Quality, Excellent music player and sound quality, Budget phone
  • Cons: Less than impressive camera, Average battery life, Low RAM mars the performance
