Xperia P: Great phone.
on 13 May 2013
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.
