Conclusion: The Sony Xperia U rounds off our reviews of the Xperia NXT range and ends the line up on a high. It really is the little Xperia that could with its sharp LCD screen, dual-core processor and decent camera.
Pros: Sharp screen, Fast processor, Solid camera
Cons: Heavy user interface, No Ice Cream Sandwich, Poor Mac connectivity
Excerpt: The Xperia U is the final piece of Sony’s NXT series puzzle. In March came the flagship Xperia S, a good device that shipped with outdated software. It’s only just been updated to Android 4.0 . Our verdict? It’s not thinner, faster, stronger, or in any other way better than the pack.
Excerpt: When it was launched last year, the Xperia U was a favourite among the Expert Reviews staff; its slim, compact design and high-density screen made it a pleasure to use. It was also a bit of a bargain SIM-free.
Excerpt: Another time for all Ericsson lovers to cheer up, as Sony Ericsson-one of the big giants in the handset industry has recently introduced a new member i.e. Sony Xperia U in its Xperia NXT Series.
Excerpt: An Android smartphone doesn’t need to have the fastest processor, the largest touchscreen display, or the fastest mobile data speeds in order to be great. It just has to offer the right combination of hardware and software features at a price that won’t break the bank.
