Sony Xperia SP: LTE Smartphone With a Long Breath

The Xperia SP can await you with HD display, Exmor-RS camera and LTE, and a giant battery is installed. Only the exterior is some getting used.

With the Sony Xperia Z has Sony bailed out this year already a proper Smartphone-blockbuster. Now, the Japanese announced a new device that represents the entry in the upper class: the Sony Xperia SP. It combines the advantages of various Xperia models, so it is equipped with the floating technology of Sony Xperia Sola , which enables operation without touching the display. The integrated transparent strip that can light up in different colors, reminiscent of the Sony Xperia U, the design a little on the Xperia Z. Finally, the display can be use, a feature that only the flagships of Nokia Lumia 920 and the new Samsung Galaxy S4 offer even when wearing gloves.

Suitable for music fans

Technically, the Smartphone is otherwise moves as of 2012-upper class models. So is a 4.6-inch-mounted display that resolves with 1,280 x 720 pixels. Individual pixels may be visible at the pixel density of 319 ppi only with a magnifying glass. To the “mobile BRAVIA Engine 2” is used, which is to provide intensive colors and high contrast. The Smartphone is powered by a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor of the type Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, which should make large memory in conjunction with the 1 GB for a liquid operation.The 8 GB small internal memory can be externally via MicroSD up to 64 GB.

Running the SP of Xperia Android in version 4.1, if and when it is the update to the current 4.2 jelly bean will be, has Sony still not announced. Usual there like at a Xperia smartphones even when the SP on the ears, so there is an own Walkman application, a xLoud audio filters, 3D surround sound and clear bass, clear stereo and clear phase (the latter for clear, natural sound). A PlayStation certification has the Smartphone also support common interfaces such as Bluetooth (4.0), dual-channel Wi-Fi, DLNA, MHL, MicroUSB, GLONASS and aGPS. The network is with LTE speed; the module sparks all frequencies used in Germany. “One Touch Mirroring” videos, games, can be etc. with the NFC chip with a touch on the (Sony BRAVIA) TV set be transferred photos.

Cameras: Mau back class, front

The lush 2,370 mAh battery should talk times of nearly 19 hours in the allow confirming the positive trend towards ever more powerful Smartphone batteries. Unfortunately, the battery can be but not change. The 8-megapixel back camera takes videos in full HD-quality and can with 16-fachem zoom, RS-CMOS-sensor LED Flash, video light, and the new Exmor, enabling HDR videos. The front-facing camera that allows only VGA video conversations and images is not so sparkling.

Also little convincing I think the exterior of the Xperia SP, because with 155 grams, it is comparatively difficult, to do so I can befriend me (the rest is plastic) really with the transparent bar or the aluminium frame. The design seems to me so when you wanted to buy absolutely something flashy without the Smartphone but thinking about whether this is also coherent. After all, goes the thickness of 9.9 mm fine.
