31 May 2013
  • Summary: A mid-range marvel with a massively impressive spec list
  • Pros: Attractive aluminium design, Full-featured camera, Media apps are a highlight, Impressive HD screen, Top marks go to the Sony Xperia SP's camera.

  • Pros: Decent screen, fast processor, solid build
  • Cons: Have to wait for 4.2 Jelly Bean, no HDMI port, camera could be better
