Sony Xperia U is one of the latest titles coming from the Japanese company, which confirms some earlier allegations that Sony has been tested in almost all segments of smartphones in a short time. The Sony Xperia U is a lower-priced phone but beware. This is Sony, and there’s nothing wrong with Sony, or at least it shouldn’t be. Still, the Sony Xperia U is a model that has taken a lot from the Sony Xperia S.
The design is primarily something that combines the two mentioned models from the Xperia series. As expected, the Sony Xperia U looks really sleek. With its sharp edges and harmoniously integrated parts, this phone is a real hand decoration. Unlike the Sony Xperia S and Sony Xperia P, Sony Xperia U has a plastic body but this in no way diminishes its value.
The special stamp of this phone gives a transparent part between the lower keys and the screen which really gives a special note to this phone, while its owners will surely enjoy using it. Of additional interest is the fact that this thin part of the phone will glow in different colors, depending on what function the phone is performing at that moment. Thus, for example, blue is reserved for photography, while multimedia “searches” for red.
The Sony Xperia U has a 5-megapixel camera and a VGA front one. The main camera is equipped with a quality LED flash, which may not be the practice when it comes to cheaper phones.
The Sony Xperia U runs on Android which looks great on a 3.5-inch screen with a resolution of 480 × 854 pixels, all powered by a 1 GHz dual-core processor. The phone is responsible for the 1,320 mAh battery, which allows up to six and a half hours of talk time.
Sony Xperia U has quite a good 4 GB of internal memory, with 512 MB of RAM. The remark that this phone does not have the possibility of using memory cards does not really stand because this is a low-budget model. This, in addition to the dimensions and hardware characteristics, is also reflected in terms of software, because Android 2.3 is installed, and not 4.0 in the new fancy models.
However, the Sony Xperia U has everything an average smartphone user needs, who is not ready to cash over 400,500 euros for a phone. Primarily, because the Sony Xperia U has almost all types of connections, navigation, and at the same time it looks really nice. And yes, we almost forget Sony Xperia U offers customers a choice between multiple colors of the lower part of the phone itself.
Now the question arises with whom the Sony Xperia U will cross spears. The answer could be found in the Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus and Nokia Lumia 800 models. It is slightly more expensive than the first model, and much cheaper than the second, and that is the chance that this phone has.
