Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo review: More than a sequel

Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo review: More than a sequel - read the full textIts a sequel. Same cast and the same story but with a new lead and a new director. Shot in HD. The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo is to settle some unfinished business at the box office. A year stands between the Vivaz and the Neo and Android does make all the difference...

The Arc looking great is another plus.

The Arc delivers what it promises, in the end it's not about the specs alone, it's how much you get satisfied whenever using the phone, that is what counts.

Two compeletely weird things in Xperia Neo's review ->
1. Camera quality is a mixed bag(but in preview Gsmarena said that neo's cam quality is awesome)
2. Gsmarena said that Neo's loudspeaker is not loud while Phone-arena in their review told that sound through loudspeaker of Neo is very loud......
Why so many diff. opinions regarding the same phone ???

Comparing this Phone to SGS is a joke! the only SGS outperform Neo is only Amoled Display, not to mention that the SGS design like chinese version of iPhone LOL ^^.

Any explanation to why would the camera on the Neo be inferior to that on the Arc?!!

Both the enjoy the same 8MP sensor, and obviously the same optical system and driver!
Can't get it really..

Anyway, still: Neo > Desire S > Ace

Desire S is really not a direct competitor since it costs ~150 more than Neo

I'm the only one who didn't understand the review title? The original Vivaz also shots HD videos.

Personally i can't find anything wrong in Neo at least it's much better than Samsung i9003 and Samsung Ace, beautiful design Android 2.3 out of the box the video sample is impressive, Flash support i think it's time to sold my Xperia X10 (Xperia Godfather) and get the grandson Neo lol

couldn't agree more. Samsung Galaxy S is far better than this, in fact, it is even better than the Arc. Arc should have been released last year and compete with Galaxy S and Desire HD. SE should be ashamed of themselves, by the time they release their dual core phones, Samsung, HTC, etc will release their quad core or 2GHz dual core phones. SE cant keep up.

SE were kings before, now they are slaves. It's just their hardware design that is helping them save face. Arc is arguably the best looking smartphone on the market right now, at least in my opinion.

There was no mention of BATTERY LIFE in this review! How can you leave out something so important?!

Also, for many of us a screen with a lower viewing angle is a GOOD thing, not bad - who wants people looking at your messages across your shoulder?
