Sony Xperia sola is one of the three devices to be launched in India recently. Priced at Rs 20,449, it brings 1GHz dual-core processor, 3.7-inch Floating Touch display (more on this later), 5MP camera and Android 2.3 to the table, but is this enough to make the consumers go for it over the competition in the market? We will find out in this review.
Sony has gone for a 3.7-inch display for Xperia sola with 854x480p resolution. The display size is perfect for basic web-browsing, playing casual games and other daily chores, but multimedia junkies and heavy gamers might find it a little small for their taste.
The Xperia sola’s 5MP camera performs quite well. Thanks to the dedicated camera button, you don’t even have to unlock the device to click an image.
The smartphone camera supports up to 720p video recording and the results were fairly decent.
In the world of smartphones filled with Qualcomm and NVIDIA chips, Sony Xperia sola runs on ST-Ericsson NovaThor U8500 dual-core processor. Don’t worry, it performs quite well, and we did not experience any hiccups during our time with the smartphone.
