Preliminary Review on Rumoured Phone: Sony Ericsson MT27i Pepper

30 September 2012
  • Summary: Overall opinion: Probably a mid-priced mobile phone, and within that standard and unknown battery life, we’ll give it a preliminary 7.5 out of 10. It’d be higher if there was an option for external memory. This is becoming an important user option as smartphone multi-use grows, but SE missed it on this model.

Expert Review

23 September 2012
  • Summary: While this isn’t the first Sony phone I’ve used, it’s the first I’ve actually enjoyed using. Would I buy one? No! Would I recommend my “techie” friends buy one? No! Would I recommend to my friends and relatives who want an Android phone but don’t want the top end phones ? No! While it’s certainly a nice phone, I’m not sure where this phone fit’s in the Android world.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Responsive, Nice looking device
  • Cons: Screen quality is sub standard, Gingerbread, Sound quality in call is poor, Camera quality is poor, reacts badly in low light

Reviewed: Sony Xperia Sola — mid-range onslaught

17 August 2012
  • Excerpt: There was much speculation about Sony’s survival in the cellphone market after losing its Ericsson connection, but it’s come up with an excellent range of phones to make their own mark. The Xperia Sola comes as an added option in the mid-range Android market in order for Sony to strengthen its onslaught. The phone is somewhat smaller than the Xperia S and, weighing in at 107 grams, fits nicely into the hand and has a good solid feel.

Sony Xperia sola review: Light 'em up

GSM Arena
29 May 2012
  • Conclusion: The Sony Xperia sola is a routine exercise in midrange smartphone making but Sony won't do without those if they're to quickly get where they want to be. This isn't about HD screens, quad-core CPUs and umpteen megapixel cameras - the Xperia sola goes by the 80-20 rule. That is, it tries to deliver 80% of the functionality for 20% of the price (okay, it's more like 50% here, but that's how technology works).
  • Pros: Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support, 3.7" 16M-color capacitive touchscreen of Full WVGA resolution (854 x 480 pixels) with Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine; Floating touch display, Android OS v2.3.7 Gingerbread, planned Android 4.0 ICS update, Dual-core 1 GHz Cortex-A9 CPU, 512 MB RAM, NovaThor U8500 chipset, 5 MP autofocus camera with LED flash and geo-tagging, Multi Angle shot, 720p video recording @ 30fps with continuous autofocus and stereo sound, Wi-Fi b/g/n and DLNA, GPS ...
  • Cons: No front-facing camera, No Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of box, Display has poor viewing angles, Stiff and unresponsive shutter key, Non user-replaceable battery

Sony Xperia Sola – Floating Touch, rectangular shape and NFC technology

25 May 2012
  • Conclusion: Sony Xperia Sola is one of the best midrange handsets we’ve reviewed. It combines innovative features and hardware that ranges from satisfying to impressive yet it doesn’t come out as an expensive option. If you’re looking to buy an affordable smartphone that goes beyond the limitations of low-end choices, you won’t regret grabbing one.
