Sony Xperia U Hands-on Review


Interface and Processor Capabilities

Sony Xperia U was initially released with Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread OS, but, received the Ice Cream Sandwich update within a few months. Moreover, the handset is powered by a dual core 1GHz processor accompanied with 512 MB RAM and mali 400 GPU. 

The Sony Xperia U, further has an internal of 8GB of memory with only 4GB of user accessible and it lacks expansion slot for micro SD card, meanwhile Sony offers 50GB free Cloud storage for life. Internal memory is allocated equally with 2GB space for Android System, 2GB for Apps storage and last 4GB for Media storage which is accessible by user. 

Moving ahead on checking the performance of the handset it can be said that the handset has enough power to handle most everyday mobile tasks. It's not an Android powerhouse like high end Sony smartphone range including the Xperia S. But its 1GHz dual-core chip delivers a decent performance. Indeed, it's the same as the engine inside its other more expensive stablemate, the Xperia P, its just that, it is paired with a smaller screen.

Further, Sony has included a Swype-style interface in the Xperia U, with which the user will be able to drag finger over letters to form words, instead of typing individual letters on the keyboard. However, one major trouble found was tha t the handset typically faster input system will require the user to tap the space bar after the formation of each word – rather than lifting off or going straight on to the next word – which slows things down.

But overall, the Xperia U seems stable and reliable.
