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.
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
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. Like its 512 MB RAM can be questionable to many and we also wonder why Sony is stick to 512 only. Atleast 756 MB RAM should be offered in their phones.
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.

Excerpt: The Sony Xperia J is the smaller and cheaper brother to James Bond's Xperia T , but don't expect to find this handset mingling with scantily clad women - the Xperia J is far more reserved, less flamboyant, happier to stay out of the limelight and just get on with life without frenzied car chases through the French Riviera.
Summary: Не скрою, что Sony XPERIA J не вызвал во мне особой симпатии, в отличие от большинства других смартфонов Sony. В первую очередь из-за низкой производительности и плохой эргономики корпуса в паре с высокой ценой, а во вторую – из-за того, что данное устройство конкурирует со своими же соседями по линейке, и так сразу понять его место и предназначение сложно.
