GSMarena Xperia P review (yes the vids are always on youtube before the writeup is ready)
I am thinking of getting this phone and also buying an external USB battery pack. Probably get one about 6000mAh size (which ends up being about the same size as the phone. That will hold 4.5 complete phone charges.
That easily covers me for long travel (flights and bus trips etc).
Anyone using an external battery with the Xperia P at the moment.

With all it's very nice specs i was going to buy this one. Except when i noticed there is NO slot for a memory card. That was a MAJOR downer. Won't buy this one. The internal memory is not big enough. Almost. But not quite.
but its whitepaper says it has a adreno 205 gpu ...not a nail 400gpu...
hi friends, first think i want to say about inbuilt battary that's not good beause u don't have option to change it when it's got weak or hang and second think it has adreno 205 not maali 400.better to go for live walkman WT19i.

Can the battery be replaced by the Sony service center? Or the mobile is dead once the battery is dead?
Sony provide good mobiles with excellent features but some drawbacks like memory card slot, front cam. why sony?

Now if you compared the Xperia S to the S2...or 3, then the Xperia S would win. Its the first fully decent smart phone of this generation to have a 12megapixel camera and the first smart phone to be HD everywhere. Its also got more Pixel density aaand looks much sexier. Its even got a Bravia TV engine in the screen. The Amoled screen makes colours look unnatural but yes, very bright. Ive seem pictures on many of my friends phoned with radioactive grass lol.
For a mid ranged phone at £20-£25pm is incredible.
Can anyone answer if Xperia P has a "lanyard inlet" for using straps like the Xperia S and Xperua U?
Thank you :)

Thing is, taking a live demo will only help in resolving the display tinge issues, which if you have seen the image comparisons on the link i give, is pretty serious. But that I assume can be resolved by keeping the brightness at low, I seriously don't need the highest brightness level that the xperia p's got.
Battery on the other hand is something that can be talked about only people who use the phone. Now a lot of reviews have talked about 2 days of battery life with moderate use so till yesterday, I was sure that I would buy this phone... But now i will wait for more word of mouth about the battery. Apart from the battery, the specs and aesthetics of this phone is spot on!

assuming u frm india itz better if u visit the sony experience or exclusive store because they have a live demo model ! i live in mumbai and will be visiting the sony store 2mmorrow and can provide u further details after dat ! till nw im firm on buying this phone !letz wait and watch!
this site showing this phone has FM Transmitter & Removable battery....is it true?
gsmreader, 31 May 2012won't go for this phone. a more freightning thing about battery, sorry sony but this is unacc... moreReally upsetting. I was looking forward to buying this phone. If battery lasts for only 10-12 hours with low usage, then it's a deal breaker. If it's a software related issue, it can be fixed, I hope it is. I will hold on buying a phone till I hear more. I am now tilting between sola and p.
