5.0 out of 5 stars Good solid smartphone 2 Aug 2012
Colour Name:Silver|Verified Purchase
I recently purchased this device direct from Amazon.
The item came as stated by Amazon, within two working days. I have several smartphones, simply because get bored & like to swap around.
I was using my Galaxy Nexus until the xperia P arrived, so I will base my findings against the nexus.
Statement I am over the moon with the xperia P device. I saw the good reviews but had not even seen the phone for real until it arrived.
To start the phone has very clean lines & a nice feel with the metal design. The phone uses a micro sim, inserted left side of the phone, gold contact down & removed corner first. Thought would get that in because instructions not too clear.
Started up the phone & like advertised it was any network & the phone set itself up & only needed click install settings & off it went. E-mail, calender sync all perfect, something that has not always gone well with other phones.
The phone is running gingerbread, not ICS & my nexus is running jelly bean but to be honest the gingerbread os has nothing really wrong with it, so very happy with it.
The screen quality blows the nexus out of the water & the 4" screen is a far better size in my eyes than the 4.65 of the nexus. With this the phone is more pocket friendly & does feel & appear a more professional device to use. The call quality is probably the best I have had on a mobile phone ever & I've had mobiles since the mid 90's & I've owned many phones.
I never really thought of call quality until I used this device & realised how well it preformed.
The 8meg camera is a treat to use, & I'm very impressed with how the phone renders web pages. For some reason thought it would not be very quick but when putting it besides the nexus, can't notice any significant difference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! 7 Jun 2012
By Lee
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I love this phone. Came from a HTC Desire Z and was glad to have the Xperia P as my new smartphone.
The 8 megapixel camera is excellent (3D panorama mode ftw!) and the whole design is stunning.
Downloaded a ton of apps and games on this phone and although there is some lag, it's rare. 16GB storage is actually 11GB but that's well enough for me.

-Sexy design :)
-Good camera
-Nice easy-to-hold 4" screen
-100% Brightness is REALLY bright!
-Good call quality
-Fast charger; around 2 hour charge for 100%
-Battery is OK but it has been improved by recent updates (I can now use my phone for the whole day and charge it overnight)
-Now upgradable to Jelly Bean 4.1

-Front camera is VGA but at least there is one
-Transparent strip can only light up in white and it doesn't look as good or bright as Xperia S\U's
-Aluminium can chip off so it'd be a good idea to buy a case/cover
-Bottom part is made out of plastic but you can't really tell unless you touch it

Although it's not the best smartphone out in the market right now in terms of specs, it's definitely worth the price it is now. All in all, I recommend this phone if you want an all around good value mid-ranged smartphone. If you'd rather get the latest smartphone with quadcore and a massive screen, then ignore this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal if you want a mid-sized smartphone 2 July 2012
By Colin
Colour Name:Black
I'm very happy with my Xperia P. It sits nicely in the hand, has a good screen that works well in direct sunlight, has a fast enough chip that rarely lags and it looks a little different to the many other smartphones out there.
The screen and buttons on the transparent strip are responsive. The camera is rather good. Build quality is great.

Cons: too many Sony bloatware apps pre-installed that you can't remove (eg. Music Unlimited, Video Unlimited, TrackID, etc.). It comes with Android 2.3.7, and although Sony have created an Android 4 update for the Xperia S, I am still waiting for a similar update for the Xperia P. There is no support for SD cards of any size. Finally the battery runs down fairly quickly (it can lose 10% overnight with WiFi, GPS, etc. disabled).

I was aware of most of the cons before I bought the phone, so I'm not disappointed with it.
Overall, recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Xperia P: Great phone. 13 May 2013
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I bought this product quite a while ago now, and I am still impressed with how balanced it is; size for power, and power for price.

The's processor is capable for most tasks, it's GPU is perhaps not as strong, but it's still good for all but the most demanding games and apps.

It's display is gorgeous.
Bright and sharp; but the brightness is met with a trade off of poorer colour reproduction; over all though I am impressed with it.

The battery, unfortunately has too small a capacity.
It's power saving features must be taken full advantage of to achieve a passable standby battery life.
Only five hours can be expected from a full charge with heavy use of the phone.(gaming/videos)

The camera is a very capable 8MP snapper producing good quality images above par for most phones.
HD video capture is passable.

Externally, the phone has a premium look an feel which Sony is only just starting to match again.
It's comfortable to hold and suitable for one hand use.

I would still recommend this phone even with it's weaknesses, which primarily is battery life.
If you can live with a short battery life, you can't go wrong with this midrange phone.

If the battery issue is not acceptable, I would recommend either the Samsung Galaxy SIII Mini or, if you're willing to pay more, the Motorola Razr i; though I have not used either of these phones.
