Sony Xperia Sola – Review

London, Mar 18 (): The Xperia Sola comes with a 3.7-inch TFT (854 x 480) Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine. It has a “floating touch” display instead of the touch screen.

Its 128x64x10.6mm dimensions make it longer and narrower than many other handsets on the market. In thinness and weight, the new Xperia phone does well against many of its contemporaries. The phone advanced up in three colors, black, white and red.

Equipped with an impressive gaming pad, the phone allows you to expand its memory to a massive 32GB in order to store all the games you want right on your phone.

The phone is powered by a speedy dual-core 1.5GHz processor which matches that of the HTC Sensation XE and new HTC One X.

A power button and 3.5mm headphones input reside at the top of the device, with a USB port for charging and link-up on the right hand side, and a HDMI out socket on the left. The solid plastic casing makes it a top-heavy handset, not ideal to balance in-hand when texting on the go, yet by no means uncomfortable

The camera is a real selling point of the Xperia S. It offers a 12.1-megapixel camera with 16x digital zoom, facial recognition and auto focus. There are several shooting modes to choose from, including a 3D or normal panoramic image, allowing you to slowly pan around a scene and create extra wide shots. There’s also a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.

The Xperia Sola is to hit stores with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but is upgradable to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Customers are in look for more ICS-featured phones in coming months and so they will be frustrated to hear that the Sola is to come with the Gingerbread.

The Sony Xperia features Bluetooth, DLNA CertifiedR, microUSB port, Media Go Media, native USB tethering, NFC (Near Filed Communication), USB High speed 2.0 support, USB Host, Wi-FiR , Wi-FiR Hotspot functionality, 3.5 mm audio jack (CTIA) and GPS.

The Sola packs 1320 mAh (built-in) typical, 1265 mAh minimum battery, which will run the phone up to six hours (talk time) and up to 470 hours on standby.
