Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Upgradable To Android 4.0 ICS
5 MP Autofocus Camera With LED Flash, 512 MB RAM
1 GHz Dual-Core Cortex-A9 Processor
Dense, bright display, Low Price Tag
The third and final phone of the Xperia’s new NXT lineup, Xperia U, is more of a shrunken down version of the Xperia S and P. For one thing, it has the same minimalistic design and feel. One great addition is the ability to change the colors of the transparent segment that holds the back, home and menu buttons. The screen used by this phone is a 3.5 Inch 480 x 854 TFT-capacitive touchscreen which is considerably dense in terms of pixel density with a ppi of 280. In general use, the screen seemed to output pretty detailed and crips results and the display turned out to be very bright.
It runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread but an Android 4.0 ICS upgrade has been made available by Sony. For a phone in this price range, this is the best you’ll get.
There are also two cameras on this phone: A 5 MP Autofocus Camera With LED Flash and a VGA front camera and it won’t be wrong to say that these are the best camera for a phone of this price tag.
The Xperia U boasts a 1 GHz Dual-Core Cortex-A9 processor coupled with 512 MB of RAM which will prove to be good enough for all your basic Android tasks. All this is powered by a 1320 mAh battery which can provide you with a standby time of 260 hours and a talk time of 6 hours and 36 mins on 2G/5 hours 36 mins on 3G.
Connectivity wise, the Xperia U has EDGE, GPRS, GPS, 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and uses Mini-SIM.
