Sony Xperia J review: no small wonder
8 July 2013
Excerpt: Sony’s Xperia J is getting on a bit, but it’s still a part of the new Xperia family, some of which I really like. The Xperia J isn’t a good phone though, and it’s pretty costly for what it offers.
Summary: Portfolio expansion. Sony is currently launching a torrent of new Xperia models on the market in order to satisfy all conceivable target groups. How will the 4-inch midrange model, featuring a clock rate of 1 GHz and a 512 MB working memory, fare in our tests and is the RRP of 239 Euros (~$323)...
Pros: Relatively inexpensive, Good workmanship, Long-lasting battery, Good screen, High contrast, Viewing angle stability, Memory expansion possible, The screen features a very high contrast at a good average brightness. Also, the screen is very stable in regards to viewing angles and provides good col...
Cons: Weak performance, Little working memory, Small internal memory, Does not render HD contents, Heavy bluish cast on pictures, A stronger SoC and a bit more working memory so that routine tasks and multimedia applications run more smoothly.
Summary: Sadly, the Sony Xperia J’s just not worth your time in late 2012: top notch phones that came out earlier this year, like the HTC One X and One S - and even last year’s Samsung Galaxy S2 - are around the same price on contract, and much more powerful, and easy on the eye.
Conclusion: Don't even bother, guys. We know that the Sony Xperia J seems like a worthy pick, especially since it carries a very reasonable price tag, but chances are you'll be disappointed by what you'll get in exchange.
Pros: Good display, Relatively decent battery life, Cheap
Cons: Performance is below par, Horrible camera, The lack of light sensor means you have to adjust the screen brightness manually, Annoying physical buttons
Conclusion: We find it hard to recommend the Xperia J despite its design, screen quality, camera and battery life. It doesn't do Android justice coupling mid-range positioning with a 1GHz single core processor.
Pros: Great screen, Long lasting battery, Beautiful design
Cons: Underpowered for price, Stuttery user interface, Camera exposure issues
Summary: Sony and Samsung have got their names over so many electronics it’s fascinating. They make music players, televisions, computer and yeah one of the best smart phones too. Sony’s phones might not be as innovative but they are up there in style-design, built and being powerful.
Excerpt: In its new series of Smartphones, Sony has come-up Xperia J - an Android touch screen phone, which is based on the Sony Ericsson's 'Xperia Arc and Xperia Arc S' design. The phone is a striking combination of stylish design and stand-out screen size with clarity and affordability.
Conclusion: The Xperia J from Sony is a great phone in Xperia series and will satisfy one with its features, technicalities and pre installed applications. This is a one of the good mid range smartphone of these days. But, few more advancements could have made it the best among others.
Pros: Xperia J offers some good features such as; 4 inch screen with Gorilla glass, Android 4.0 ICS, dual camera and 1700 mAh strong battery.
Cons: Sony should be offering atleast 756 MB RAM for this powerful device.
Summary: • Impressive design • Decent camera • Excellent battery life • Affordable • Good screen • Non-hot-swappable microSD slot • Does not include hardware shutter key • No DivX/XviD support • Few glitches • Supports Mini-SIM Since long, Sony has been in a habit of launching its torrent of new Xperia...
