Title says it all, Sony has announced its first ever self branded Smartphone in India, Sony Xperia U which is the cheapest dual core Smartphone from such a reputable brand. So is there any catch to it, YES there is, we are gonna tell you what it is.
Sony Xperia U will be the cheapest dual core Smartphone once it is available beside the Micromax a85 which is nothing in comparison to Sony reputation. Sony Xperia U is priced at 17399/- , so whats make sony to keep the price low, 2 things
First the display size which is 3.5 inch but still it is decent and perfect for majority of people (apple fan boys).
Second which is most disheartening, that it does not have the micro sd expandable slot, but it has a 8GB internal memory of which only 4 GB is usable so all in all you are left with 4 GB memory and nothing more.
If you can accept that then it’s the best phone out there, at 17399/- you get Dual-core 1 GHz STE U8500 processor on 3.5 inch display with whopping 480 x 854 pixels resolution giving it overall PPI of 280 which is amazing. It will come with android 2.3 gingerbread but the ICS update will soon be released for it.
It has 4 fingers multitouch support. About the camera it has 5 MP back camera with AF, LED Flash and a front VGA camera.
With all this great features, the phone has a very stylish design and illuminated transparent strip which changes it color to match the dominant color of wallpaper.
So are you ready to accept this phone despite it one big flaw ie No SD card slot, or the others attractive features and pricing got the hold on you. Whatever it is tell us by commenting below.
