Sony continues to extend its Xperia line since buying off its partner Ericsson. There is no more Sony Ericsson so Sony calls the shot as to how the Xperia models are crafted. So far, feedbacks have been great and this Sony range is much loved by their users. Let’s find out which are the Best 5 Sony Xperia Smartphone Models for 2012 that run the Android OS.
Sony Xperia S
We start with the best of the best. The Xperia S leads the NXT series from Sony. First off, you get a 720p display and a 12-megapixels camera. Moreover, you get a 342ppi pixel density that is hard to match with any other handset. As with all Sony handsets, it runs the Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine and has a scratch resistant glass. The phone will soon get the 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade as it currently runs 2.3.7 Gingerbread Android version. With its camera, you can record true HD 1080p videos at 30fps.
Sony Xperia U
The Xperia U is a mini gadget that does wonders for its class. It has a 3.5″ 16million color capacitive touch screen. Video recording is at 720p with 30fps and you get a continuous autofocus and capture stereo sound. The phone has an attractive transparent strip that changes color with the change of the screen. The phone is so well designed that it beats some smartphones that are twice as expensive!
Sony Xperia P
This is an elite phone coming with a metallic unibody. The phone features an additional white subpixel to complement the normal RBG color. The extra ensure s that you get a super high brightness and lower power consumption. It has a 4 inch display with Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine and scratch resistant glass. It supports Adobe Flash 11 and NFC connectivity. There is a microHDMI output and it runs Android Gingerbread.
Sony Xperia Sola
Sola comes close to the NXT series of the S, U and P. You get all the functionality on the 1Ghz Dual-core Coretex-A9 chipset and the 3.7” capacitive touch screen. Internal storage is 8GB with the user having access to 5GB. NFC connectivity is present but there is no front facing camera. The super-crisp reality display works wonders in the absence of Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine.
Sony Xperia Neo L
The Neo L may seem to be a little late for the party but it surely enters with a bang! It comes with Ice Cream Sandwich so that’s a real head turner. The handset has a 1GHz Scorpion CPU and the Adreno 205 GPU running with the Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset. You get a front facing camera that works perfectly with Skype and Google. The 5MP camera can also perform 3D Sweep Panorama. It is a mid range phone, but it certainly sits on the top of its class!
