Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro - Expert Reviews

Introduction

 

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro is a Smartphone that is competent enough to handle your complex business needs and satisfy your personal requirements efficiently. The Sony phone runs on Android v2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system and possesses a 1 GHzprocessor under its hood. The Sony Ericsson Xperia pro is loaded with 512MB RAM. The Xperia pro from Sony Ericsson has a 3.7-inch TFT FWVGA capacitivetouch screen with a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels that gives you visual clarity while using the phone. This stylish phone gives you a choice of touch or type with a full QWERTY keypad that slides out from the side. The device is preinstalled with the Timescape UI that gives you an immersive experience. The Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA engine makes your screen images look sharp and crisp. The gestureinput feature makes texting and typing convenient. This Sony Ericson Smartphone is equipped with a powerful 8.1 megapixel camera with 16x zoom and a powerful LED flash.

Operating system and UI

 

Running under the hood of the Xperia Pro is a 1GHz Snapdragon processor that SE has managed to put to extremely effective use. The UI is super fluid with apps that will literally open up instantaneously with the slightest tap of your finger or gesture. Screen rotation was sooth and lag free and so were gesture control based parts of the UI and Android 2.3 also known as Gingerbread. It scored very well in benchmarks as well with a LINPAC scoring of 37.5 in a Single Thread run and 33.8 in the Multi Thread run. Sony Ericsson’s customized Android UI, although seemingly well designed has never been to smooth on quite a few of the Smartphone we’ve tested. However that was not the case with the Xperia Pro. Of course running alternative UI’s like Launcher Pro etc. worked out much better in terms of usability. TimeScape is also part of the UI package and a new widget called Type and Send that allows a user  to do exactly what it says and even post your message to social networks or send an email is quite handy. Adao File Manager is also provided to access directories.

Other Features

 

The phone has a 5 mp camera which is capable of recording videos at 720p resolution. The camera app is pretty basic and simple to use and only has the standard options and thanks to the shutter button on the phone the experience is alright. Overall quality for the pictures is good/average, although I found the ones taken in low light conditions to be pathetic. Here are some test shots. The music player is simple and easy to use with basic features. It has an equalizer and Sony Ericsson’s so called Infinity button. The infinity button is basically a cool name for a really common feature; it just searches the artist’s name in YouTube and Wikipedia. The sound quality is satisfactory and the given earphones are of average quality. As for the radio it needs a pair of headphones/earphones to work. As usual the interface is just basic. User can use TrackID and find the current playing song which is pretty cool.

Camera

 

As for actual quality, photos taken in low-light conditions are seem to have a lot of noise but otherwise are pretty good. Video recording supports 720p HD resolution, continuous auto-focus and also does a fairly good job overall. As I mentioned earlier, the biggest issue while using the camera is the ridiculously small and stiff camera shutter button, so the touch-to-capture feature might be better way of taking shots. The camera in the Xperia Pro is actually pretty good overall but it isn't amazing. Overall quality for the pictures is good/average, although I found the ones taken in low light conditions to be pathetic.

Connectivity

The Sony Ericsson Xperia pro can support Internet connectivity needs efficiently. User can use GPRS, EDGE, Wi-Fi and 3G platforms to connect the Internet. A Wi-Fi hotspot feature on this mobile lets user connect to other devices even without a modem. AGPS and Google Maps help user explore a world without boundaries by guiding the path at all times. Email andPush Email along with Document Viewer and Document Editor ensures the user that the office is with them at all times.

Memory

 

This Smartphone has an internal memory of 320 MB and is expandable up to 32GB using microSD, micro SDHC cards. It is featured with 512 RAM.

 

Other Features

 

Social networking applications like Facebook and Twitter are supported on theSony Ericsson Xperia pro. The mobile is enabled with YouTube, Google Talk, Google Mail and a host of other applications to keep you entertained and connected at all times. A DLNA port on this Sony Ericsson Handset lets user to connect to the TV and enjoy entertainment life size. The Sony Ericsson Xperia pro supports a Type and Send feature that integrates your messages, mails and social networking from a single screen. The screen capture application lets you capture your screen images and texts to share with friends. The Android Market on the Xperia pro lets user to download and use all the applications needed on the phone to make life easier.


 

 

Battery

 

A Li-Po 1500 mAh battery powers this mobile phone. The battery when fully charged is capable of giving talk time of up to 6 hours on 2G and 7 hours on 3G. The battery can give you a standby time of 430 hours on 2G and 400 hours on 3G.

Connectivity

 

The USB port is placed squarely at the top of the handset with a micro HDMI port on the right side above the camera shutter release (bottom) and the volume rocker. It gets the usual smattering of Stereo FM, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, GPS with aGPS, and HSDPA 7.2 along with HSUPA 5.8.

Other Features

 

Sony Ericsson is a big company, to be sure, but it’s still not among the top-tier when it comes to Android smart phones. That upper level is probably still held by HTC and Samsung, possibly with an honorable mention to Motorola.

The Xperia pro continues with that kind of tradition. It’s not going to win any awards and it’s not going to floor you with its performance. What it is going to provide you is a more than adequate Android experience at a reasonable price. The 1GHz processor feels dated compared to its current dual core (and soon to be quad core) competition, but it gets the job done. The keyboard is a plus, for people who like keyboards, and the camera is very good too.

Other Features

 

 

Sony has just released the Android 4.0 ICS update for the Xperia mini pro. It is available almost everywhere already, so if you own one of those – go ahead and check for an OTA update. Slide out the perfectly designed keyboard and write away. This QWERTY Android phone makes typing a breeze, and the Type & Send function lets write all your messages directly on the home screen.

Sony Ericsson as a company undergoing a slight change, one would expect their devices to do so as well. Sadly that’s not the case, however, there never really was a generalcause of concern for users
