Sony Xperia J

4 October 2014
  • 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. If you’re a die-hard Sony fan, go right ahead, but know that there are better options out there.

Sony Xperia J review: no small wonder

8 March 2014
  • 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. For US$209 , you’re saddled with a plastic lump that’s as ugly to look at, as it is awful to interact with. I dunno, sometimes this job just feels like a job when I have to waste my time with phones like the Xperia J.

Sony Xperia J Review: In Depth

5 December 2013
  • 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. Even the highlights - screen quality for example - are let down by the stuttery UI and general lacklustre performance. We're not confident it will cope with a 24 month contract.
  • Pros: Great screen, Long lasting battery, Beautiful design
  • Cons: Underpowered for price, Stuttery user interface, Camera exposure issues

Review Sony Xperia J Smartphone

1 February 2013
  • 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) reasonable?
  • 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 color reproduction even in the slightest angles.
  • 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.

Sony Xperia J review: Junior league

GSM Arena
22 November 2012
  • Conclusion: The styling of the company's flagship smartphone and a screen with more pixels than most people expect for the price give the Sony Xperia J a headstart over the competition. On the other hand, Sony had to make a lot of hard decisions to stay within budget. It's beyond doubt that many users will be drawn by the resolution and the price. And to be honest, the Xperia J isn't the kind of phone people would research at length.
  • Pros: Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and dual-band UMTS support, 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, 4.0" 16M-color TFT capacitive touchscreen of FWVGA resolution (480 x 854 pixels) at around 245 ppi, Android OS v4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, 1 GHz Cortex-A5 CPU, Adreno 200 GPU, Qualcomm MSM7227A chipset, 512 MB of RAM, 4GB of inbuilt storage (2GB user available), microSD slot (32GB supported), 5 MP autofocus camera, single LED flashlight, geotagging, touch focus, VGA video @ 30fps, S...
  • Cons: Noticeable lag, Non-hot-swappable microSD slot, Image quality a bit of a letdown, No hardware shutter key, No DivX/XviD support, Feeble loudspeaker

  • 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. For a lower mid-range smartphone, the device has a decent battery life and a good-looking display, but that's pretty much it. The sub-par performance is really the deal breaker in this case, so our advise is to start looking for an alternative.
  • 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

20 November 2014
  • Summary: The basics The Sony Xperia J brings the styling and software of Sony’s top notch Xperia T phone downmarket. Like its Bond-backed bigger brother, it packs a curved plastic shell, but there’s a smaller four-inch screen and a lower power 1GHz processor and five megapixel camera. But can its Android 4.0 software stand its ground a year since release? The good There’s a lot to be said for the Sony Xperia J’s screen size - four inches, just like the iPhone 5.
  • Pros: There’s a lot to be said for the Sony Xperia J’s screen size - four inches, just like the iPhone 5. It’s not humongous, as many flagship Android phone displays now are (The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 stretches a barely practical 5.5-inches across) - you can reach across it with one hand, and for many that’s a real plus. The same can be said for Sony’s friendly take on Android, which is easy to use, and comes with some handy extras for technophobes, like TimeScape, which pu...
  • Cons: While Apple, HTC and Nokia crack on with curvaceous, beautiful designs, Sony’s smartphone hardware is starting to feel a little lacklustre. The smeary black plastic looks and feels cheap, and though arced at the back, the 9.2mm deep phone seems very chunky indeed. In fact, it looks much too much like Sony’s very first Android effort, 2010’s Sony Xperia X10. The Sony Xperia J also runs Android 4.0 - it’s feature-packed and supports most apps, but Google’s now two versi...

  • 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. Sony Xperia J is another one from Sony’s bag of smart phones which has an amazing finish and performs really well. It came with the wave of the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich phones.
