About Sony Xperia U

Introduced to the market in May 2012, the Sony Xperia U is another Android-based smartphone which was designed to blow the low-end competition away. It is built with the classy Sony look and performs decently considering its not-so-impressive specifications.

Popularity in the Philippines

The low end smartphone market has been growing steadily for the past years in response to the local demand for affordable yet solidly built phones. Competition is quite tough with the local brands gaining attention. The Sony Xperia U managed to get a foothold by offering the Filipinos with an excellent quality smartphone designed for durability and decent performance. Good thing the brand name Sony has always maintained a great reputation and this is probably the reason why this device is among the top sellers in the country.

Product Description

The Sony Xperia U is a 3.5 inch smartphone with TFT capacitive touchscreen display and 854X480 pixel resolution. The device runs on a 1GHz Nova Thor dual core processor with 512 MB RAM and built in storage of 8GB. This Sony device is supplied with Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread during its launch but upgradeable to the 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich version.

There is a 5MP camera at the rear with LED flash and a VGA front camera. The back camera comes with auto focus and takes HDR photos and other features such as 16x digital zoom, face detection, HD video recording, image capture, image and video playback and sweep panorama. There is also a dedicated shutter key for fast capture.

In terms of design, the Xperia U features the popular Sony curved back form. It also has a scratch resistant glass with the bar at the button lighting up when viewing photos and a transparent strip hiding the antenna. There are also exchangeable bottom caps which come in four colours: Pink, Black, Yellow and White. Its screen also boasts of Reality Display powered by Mobile BRAVIA Engine, on screen QWERTY keyboard and screenshot capturing. It has a 1320mAh battery with a talk time of 6 hours and 36 minutes and standby time of up to 472 hours.

The Sony Xperia U smartphone also comes with a host of impressive connectivity and synchronization features. For starters, it works with 2G and 3G networks and connects via WiFi, Bluetooth, DLNA and WiFi Hotspot. Users are also delighted with the Native USB Tethering, aGPS and WebKit web browser with Pan & Zoom. Synchronize with your Facebook, Google Sync and Exchange ActiveSync.

Being a Sony device, you can expect it to be loaded with the company's media applications. It also comes with Google Services such as Google Voice Search, Google Talk with Video Chat, Google Maps with Street View and Latitude, Google Gallery 3D Google Mail and Google Calendar.

Music lovers will love the many features which make listening to your favorite songs a great experience. They include, Clear base and clear stereo, TrackID and the xLoud Experience. Messaging is possible with MMS, SMS, Push Email and other third party apps that can be downloaded such as Skype and Viber. It is available in Black and White colours and priced between PhP8000 to Php15 700.


The Sony Xperia U has a lot of things going for it to make it a smart buy. For starters, it has a solid construction which means comfortable use. It also has a clear display and decent operating system during its time. The clever Facebook integration has endeared it to many consumers. The same goes for the music player.


The Sony Xperia U only comes with an internal storage of 4 GB and the lack of micro SD expansion slot leaves you with no option but to delete content all the time. The cameras are also not quite as impressive as the other brands of the same price and you will most likely be disappointed with the low screen resolution and the poor 720p video. Still, it is a decent smartphone and a reliable one at that.

Recommendation/ Conclusion

The decision to buy the Sony Xperia U will rely solely on the fact that you are investing your money well on a brand that has always been reliable. The upside is, the device comes with good specs for its price.
