Sony Xperia U – Upcoming Sony Smartphone
Sony as a brand has only been in existence for a few months, but it has managed to put together a collection of impressive handsets and the cheapest one is called the Sony Xperia U. The handset takes a good deal of design elements from its more powerful brother, the Sony Xperia S, with its transparent element between the buttons and the base of the phone, providing an eye-catching feature that is sure to get many potential buyers interested.
Unfortunately, it lacks the sleekness of the Xperia S and the solid aluminum feel of the bigger Xperia P. The Xperia U is plastic all the way and it’s an acceptable compromise for the cheaper price.
A quick glance at the phone shows that there are no significant design differences between the three, as they share the same transparent element at the bottom section. The transparent part lights up based on what is displayed on the screen.The Sony Xperia U comes with a 0.3Mp (VGA) front-facing camera to complement the 5Mp shooter on the rear. Sony’s Timescape UI is once again on offer and it is certainly getting better than ever. From the well-spaced keyboard to the phone dialer, the Sony Xperia U definitely can surprise consumers more than they thought a 3.5″ screened smartphone would. Android lovers will definitely appreciate a wealth of settings the phone has to offer, meaning you can tweak the phone easily to meet your unique requirements. Performance-wise, the Sony Xperia U may compete with the likes of the Nokia Lumia 800 and Samsung Galaxy Ace 2, which definitely gives us enough reason to consider it has a good chance of succeeding.
