The screen works at a resolution of 16 million colors and gives 480 by 854 pixels. The device has sharp edges and is rectangular in shape and curvy from behind which is attractive to look at but not as easy to hold like the new Samsung Galaxy SIII or the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 which is inspired by a pebble and is constructed to fit the palms of the user. It is available in the colors of black and white where the bottom part of the device being exchangeable with pink, black, white and yellow. Apart from the look, the technical specifications of the device are decent too with the camera being pretty good offering a resolution of 5 megapixels.

*        Primary 5-megapixel camera with auto focus and LED flash

*        Secondary VGA camera

*        Mail-400 GPU

Sony Xperia U is one of the mid range experia devices and has been reasonably successful in the Indian market. Earlier it was Samsung Galaxy Ace and Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus that was taking the majority of market but with Xperia U, customers have a wide pool of choices. The device is pretty attractive and is actually better looking than Samsung Galaxy Ace and Ace plus.  

Sony mobiles have a very strong portfolio in the mobile market, but lately, the company has been working on its Xperia range of smartphones. In the Xperia menu, Sony Xperia U is one of the most impressive devices that have been released by Sony mobiles so far. This phone sports striking features that are not only user friendly, but are also attractive. Starting with the major features, Sony Xperia U comes with 3.5 inches Reality Display that has been powered with well-known Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine. This screen is utterly ideal for watching movies and images in sharp clarity. This 3.5 inches of LED-backlit LCD, capacitive touch screen has a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels and support multitouch of up to four fingers, which is impressive. The Timescape user interface further enhances the working experience for the user on Xperia U.

Under the hood, Sony Xperia U comes with a dynamic dual core processor running at a fast speed of 1.5 GHz and powered by the Android OS, Android 2.3 Gingerbread planning to be upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The dual core processor is supported by STE U8500 Chipset and DB8500 GPU. The 512 MB of RAM supports the smooth functioning Android operating system. On the other hand, the 4 GB of internal memory space could be used for storing huge amount of games, songs, videos, images and applications. But sadly, Sony Xperia U misses out on microSD card slot. Therefore, the user won’t be able to expand the memory any further. The remarkable 5 megapixels of rear camera is accompanied by autofocus, LED flash, geo-tagging, touch focus, face and smile detection and 3D sweep panorama, image stabilization, while secondary VGA camera is perfect for making video calls and clicking self-portraits without any trouble. The rear camera is also capable of recording 720p of videos at the rate of 30 frames per second with continuous video light facility.

The connectivity features of Sony Xperia U don’t disappoint the user at all. The handset comes with Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPRS (up to 107 kbps speed) and EDGE (up to 296 kbps speed). The users can also transfer the data to and fro to other corresponding devices without any trouble via Bluetooth with A2DP and microUSB port version 2.0. On the whole, Sony Xperia U is an impressive Android smartphone, but the only disappointment here is the lack of microSD card slot and high pricing.
