The Sony Xperia P is a new smartphone in the Xperia line that gives full weight when it comes to Sony as a manufacturer. As this phone came into our offer, it would be nice for it to get a little closer in terms of what it can offer the user. For starters, we can say that it belongs to the group of mid-priced smartphones with a tendency to approach the more expensive ones, which would mean a dual-core processor and much more at the moment.
As the phones from the Xperia series are visually difficult to distinguish, the Sony Xperia P can be said to be a model that exudes attractiveness and a calm and simple design that obviously has enough quality to simply delight us. The Sony Xperia P is slightly rounded at the back and this has not been done for any reason other than practicality, and the aluminum background grips securely by hand.
The Sony Xperia P has a good screen as standard, which is understandable considering the technology that Sony uses. The LCD display produces an image with a resolution of 540 × 960 pixels, which is sharp and clear.
This screen has WhiteMagic technology that allows the so-called. “White subpixel” for each pixel in addition to the standard RGB trio for each individual pixel. This means that the screen will be much brighter in strong daylight, and it also reduces energy consumption. Compared to the Super AMOLED displays (like the one on the HTC One S), it still seems to lag behind, especially in terms of contrast and intensity of black display, which the average user will probably not be presented with any serious objections.
Sony Xperia P has a classic and micro USB port, as well as HDMI, which allows it to connect to several types of devices (from TV for example), so it can be used as a remote control. You just sit in an armchair and enjoy it.
The phone runs on the Android 2.3 operating system, which means that users will be deprived of the innovations that version 4.0 offers, which is installed on some competing models. If it is a consolation, it is expected that the upgrade to ICS will be possible sometime later.
Among the other elements of the specification, we can single out a battery that will serve you for about 6 hours of talk time, a great 8-megapixel HD camera and an auxiliary one in VGA resolution, 16 GB of internal and 1 GB of RAM.
