Over all Review of Sony Xperia Sola

Sony Xperia Sola Price

Overall Review

Sony Xperia Sola gives enough reasons to b applauded, as it is an exquisite device with some real novel inclusions. Sony has put in a lot of effort to make this otherwise mid-range and affordable handset, truly a worthy one. The most magnificent is the touchscreen of Sony Xperia Sola. It has 3.7 inch touch display that comes with floating touch technology. For those unfamiliar with this, must understand that this is the latest technology that Sony has introduced in Xperia Sola to amuse the buyers. This magical technological intervention has made this device capable of taking inputs over the screen without touching it. The navigation just has to be done by hovering the fingers over the screen and it right away opens the desired applications and files. The finger hovering over the screen isn't the only hoax that this phone has, in fact, Sola holds up its sleeve because the screen is also capable of detecting touches through non-conductive fabric. One can work with Sony Xperia Sola wearing hand gloves also. This smartphone device support NFC SmartTags too. This amazing piece of unique technology comes with a size of 116 mm x 59 mm x 9.9 mm and is very light and easy to carry with a weight of 107 grams. The soft finish of the back makes it stick to the palm and the hand-fit is surprisingly comfortable and this compact and lightweight handset can be easily controlled with a single hand. Although technically not a part of the NXT series, Sony Xperia Sola shares some of the design choices of its other Xperia siblings. It offers a few notable features to make up for its lack of Ice Cream Sandwich and these include a super-crisp reality display with Floating Touch and a powerful dual-core processor, which promises to run Gingerbread platform perfectly smooth. It also has NFC, and the retail package comes with a couple of NFC tags to play around with. Below the capacitive screen, there are three capacitive keys for Back, Home and Menu, which become backlit, based upon what the ambient sensor detects. The left side has the power/lock key located near the top whereas the right part of the device holds the USB port for charging and transferring files, followed by the volume rocker and camera shutter key right next to one another. On the other hand, the 3.5 mm audio jack is the only thing on the top, while on the bottom there is just a primary mic pinhole and a lanyard eyelet. The back is the home for the 5 MP camera along with LED flash and a secondary mic for stereo recording and the speaker grill is situated at the bottom. There is a charge/event indicator which glows in red or green depending on charge status and blinks whenever there is something that requires the users attention. On the whole, Sony Xperia Sola is a different kind of gadget which doesn’t seem to resemble the most other Android smartphones in the market. It packs in its own punch and is genuinely innovative piece of gadget that will make its own set of devotees across the globe.
