Product Description

Sony Xperia P is supposed to stand out of the crowd with its 4.0-Inch qHD display manufactured using Sony's very own WhiteMagic technology, the device's screen is capable of delivering brightness superior to that of any other smartphone on the market today, according to Sony. Thanks to that, the screen's outdoor visibility should be outstanding, to say the least. Looking further down its specs sheet, we see a dual-core chipset providing the Sony Xperia P with processing power. Responsible for capturing those special moments is an 8-megapixel camera residing on the smartphone's back. What is really cool about the camera is that it should be capable of booting really fast straight from the lock screen.

From the Manufacturer

Experience beauty. Distinctive design.

The Xperia P stands out with its distinctive, minimalistic design.

Like all phones in the Sony Xperia NXT series, Xperia P has a simple and distinctive design. The Xperia P takes it one step further with a precision crafted, full aluminum body that gives this Android phone a unique, durable and modern look.

A clear display, even in bright sunlight.

Lounging in the sun, enjoying a YouTube clip or your favorite movie.

The 4 inch Reality Display powered by the Mobile Bravia Engine also includes Sony’s unique WhiteMagic technology, making the colors in your favorite clips and pictures look as sharp and clear as if you were inside.

WhiteMagic adds a fourth white sub-pixel to the Reality Display, where traditional LCD screens have three- red, green and blue. The result is the outstanding combination of an ultra-bright screen and great power efficiency. The Xperia P is power efficient because WhiteMagic automatically adjusts the brightness of the screen to surrounding light; when the light is not strong, Sony Xperia P uses less battery power.

Experience now. Capture it all in brilliant HD.

Some things are just too good to miss.

    Vital Statistics

    The Xperia P weighs 4.23 ounces and measures 4.8 x 2.34 x 0.41 inches.




    Android Gingerbread Operating System

    Android Gingerbread

    The Xperia P runs the Android 2.3 operating system (dubbed Gingerbread). It features a cleaner, more refined interface with new icons, improved top notification bar, and more intuitive navigation.

    Multitasking in Gingerbread allows you the ability to run more than one app at a time. If you're playing a game, you can easily switch to an incoming e-mail and then switch back to the game without losing your place. And like the previous version of Android ("Froyo"), Gingerbread provides support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full Web.

    A new onscreen keyboard makes it easier to type thanks to additional spacing between the keys and larger font sizes. And the more you use the keyboard, the easier typing will be as the enhanced suggest feature records previous input history to make better suggestions.

    The Xperia P also brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services you use every day. It also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail. And through the Google Play store, you'll get access to thousands of useful applications, widgets, and fun games to download and install on your phone, with many more apps being added every day.

    Google Integration
    • Google Play store for browsing and downloading thousands of free and paid apps
    • Pre-loaded Android apps: Browser, Calculator, Calendar (Google or Corporate), Camera, Clock, Contacts, Email, Gallery, Messaging, Music, News & Weather, Phone, Settings, Video Player, Voice Dialer, Voice Search, YouTube
    • Google applications: Gmail, Google Search, Google Voice Search, Google Latitude, Google Maps, Google Places, Google Talk
    • Google Maps Navigation with spoken turn-by-turn directions showing real-time traffic and 360° views of the destination

Excellent design, great screen, great sound, good camera.
Juan Manuel Torres
Restart the phone every couple of days because the apps will drain the phone's battery life even after closing them.
Sono
It showed up already set up with Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) which is also great.

I'm a person who wants a few things from a phone.
1. Does the basics well (call, receive, messaging)
2. The equipment is quality (display, camera, speaker, gps, browser)
3. Relatively modern without the expensive price. (I could care less about the latest edge in smartphones, anything that is outdated before its warranty ends should not be a heavy investment.)
This phone fulfilled these challenges rather nicely.

Description:
This phone has a 4" display, finished with a rounded aluminum backing in matte black. The bar that contains the android's back, home, and menu keys is transparent. The top of the phone has the 3.5mm jack. The bottom piece is a removable plastic cap. Removing it will expose a label that shows the serial/manufacturer info. The speakerphone is on the right side of the phone, below that is the power/unlock screen button, below that button is the volume adjustment, and ends with a 2-stage dedicated camera button. There is a front facing camera for skype and a rear facing 8mp camera (6mp when used in 16:9 widescreen) equipped with a bright LED flash. On the left side of the phone there is the micro-usb charging port, the micro hdmi ouput, the slot for microsim. The micro usb and hdmi ports are uncovered whereas the microsim port is covered. Comes with in-ear headphones w/ microphone as linked here Sony MH750 Stereo Headset with Microphone and Answer/End Button for Cell Phones - Black (Bulk Packaging) Factory unlocked with 1 year manufacturer warranty.

The good:
-Screen quality and brightness. Big and bright with 960x540 resolution. The indoor/outdoor visibility of the screen is just phenomenal.

I think that it is important to state I have never owned a smartphone prior to this purchase. I never thought it practical to own one on the premise that I'd be stuck in a contract with some lousy company and spend $130 per month (college student/part-time work). Unlocked = no contract? Hell yeah. Tech awareness level: I OWN an ASUS g75V, 12 Gb RAM, nVidia GTX 670M, it's pretty cool but that's a different story, I emphasize own because I don't want you to think that I chisel designs in rocks for fun.

Anyway, enough pre-review ramble there is plenty review ramble to kill a few minutes of your time. Sorry, non-refundable. Take it for what it's worth: If you want to skip the specifics of my review, go to the end and I will briefly restate the points made throughout in the last paragraph. Thanks :)

The OS needs an update upon delivery. This is, apparently, important to do with ALL Android phones upon update: you must do a factory reset after you update your phone to 4.0 (ice cream sandwich), or else you will have APN issues, and certainly other software incompatibilities. This will mess with your multimedia message delivery and probably some other important things I can't fathom. Make sure you factory reset the phone before you do anything after the update, because you will inevitably reset it at one point and lose this info. Don't back up anything until you reset, unless you have rooted chances are you didn't remove the default APN t-mobile settings. (Trust me it is in this order.) In order to set the APN to your carrier, I think installing the micro SIM card, update the phone software through WiFi or internet, and a factory reset in that order would be the solution. (I run AT&T and spent quite a bit of time trying to swap out of the t-mobile default before resetting.

Color Name: Silver
I have the Sony Xperia P a month ago. The experience is amazing. Screen is 4" clear and Brilliant, Excellent manufacturing, updated to Android ICS. The features that I love are the Walkman (included in the ICS update), TimeScape, TrackID, the 8 MP Camera with outstanding video recording and the console for conectivity that used with smart tags do the transition between office and my home an smooth experience.

This console permit me to save battery adjusting the synchro time of my apps and the use of the screen (all time in top brilliant adjust), it last two days without recharge using 3G net and WiFi connections for a lot of service. Maybe could be better.

If you are looking for a midrange Cellular with a high quality-price ratio, the choice is Sony Xperia P.

READ BOTTON!

First of all do yourself a favor and enter to gsmarenadotcom or another place where you can compare phones and you will see that this phone gives you more than what you are paying for. Please compare the phone with the iphone, galaxy, htc etc.

Pros:
-Price is great compared to other phones with same features.
-Great looking, not as stylish as iphone but is good
-Timeline feature is great if you like facebook.
-It was very easy to setup the mobile internet connection, it has a feature in mobile network setting when you choose your service provider and the phone is ready to use. I bought this phone to use with t mobile and i getting the H(HSDPA = 3G) and edge speed, i am in New York.

-Great photos

-Crystal clear calls

-Another feature is that you can see flash content on web pages, like watching NBA videos.

-Ice Cream sandwich

This update was full of bugs: Lag, camera bug, etc...

-Jelly Bean: see bottom page.

Cons:

-Cable from wall charger is too short
-No HDMI cable
-There are just a few covers and accessories for this phone
-Cheap plastic on the lower part of the phone.

Final: i spent hours looking for the perfect unlocked phone and for the money this phone was the best that i found. Hope this help you.

Update 1/25/2013: After i remove the charger from the phone the charging notification still there, the only solution for me right now is to restart the phone. I'll keep you posted!

Update 1/26/2013: The phone is back to normal, I just restarted the phone and I used the phone until the charge was in 30 % and tried again to charge the phone and the problem went away.
