Sony Xperia U review

theverge.com
7 January 2014
  • Summary: 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 In March came the flagship Xperia S, a good device that shipped with outdated software.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. Next up was the Xperia P, a mid-range device that really impressed, but was difficult to recommend running Android 2.3.
  • Pros: Dense, bright display, Snappy, agile performance, Enduring battery life, Great call quality
  • Cons: Ships with Android 2.3, not 4.0, Chubby design feels a little awkward, LED lights not for everyone

Sony Xperia U Review: In Depth

Recombu

  • 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. While the screen might be too small for some, at 3.5-inches, it's iPhone sized which seems to work for millions. Our only two major gripes with the Sony Xperia U are internal storage and gone off Gingerbread.
  • Pros: Sharp screen, Fast processor, Solid camera
  • Cons: Heavy user interface, No Ice Cream Sandwich, Poor Mac connectivity

Sony Xperia U

  • 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. That’s essentially what the Sony Xperia U is all about. It’s a phone that doesn’t look like much but actually packs quite a punch.

Sony Xperia U

  • Conclusion: The Xperia U is quite possibly the best-value phone in Sony's latest Xperia range. This doesn't say an awful lot necessarily, given that the Xperia S is a mid-range phone with a pretty high-range price tag. The Xperia U just misses out on greatness through its poor memory capacity, which means you won't be making the most of its fine processing power as you simply can't keep that much on it.

Sony Xperia U review

itproportal.com
26 June 2012
  • Conclusion: It is hard not to be impressed by the Xperia U's screen resolution or by Sony's efforts to squeeze in a dual-core processor. But on the other hand, Sony's failure to allow for memory expansion and the old hat Android 2.3 are downers, and overall the handset is a bit too small for my liking. You, however, might disagree, and if the design works for you, the Xperia U is worth considering.
  • Pros: Distinctive design, Sharp if small screen, Capable processor, Front camera
  • Cons: No memory expansion, A bit too small overall

Sony Xperia U

CNET
18 June 2012
  • Summary: The Android-powered Sony Xperia U is cheap, cheerful, cute as a button and -- provided you're not too demanding of it -- fleet of foot. Large-handed folk may find it fiddly though.
  • Pros: Dual-core power in a pocket-friendly package; Snazzy coloured mood lights.
  • Cons: Not everyone will dig the mood lighting; No microSD card slot.
