Its been a month I have used this phone and I would like to express my opinion.
I have heard that people saying that Sony Xperia SP is not a good phone, it has average processor, poor battery performance, poor camera qulaity and other things.
One thing I would like to tell everyone. I everday play asphalt 8 on this phone and it doesnt lag anywhere. The graphics in the game are awesome in this phone. There is no blurred imaging while I play.
Next camera. I took some photos in landscape mode and it produced great pictures for a 8 MP camera. At night in my room i took selfies in low light and the pictures were good with few grains.
If someone wants a much much better quality photos please switch to a DSLR camera. Overall built and design is good for this phone.
For the price sony xperia SP is providing this features and I dont think they are inadequate.
Only the front camera is VGA which is a con for this phone. But if you are not interested in taking selfies from the front camera i suggest its a really good phone.
The only thing I kindly request Sony is to bring kitkat update for this phone. And its relevant from other sorces that there are lot many people who want a kitkat update for this phone. Its a great phone and its overall fuctionality would be wasted if it doesnt get kitkat update.
Wellwisher .. ???, 25 Mar 2014I have only interest about its camera ..... I know it is a nice phone inside and out but I als... moreXperia zr and samsung grand 2 seem to be your only options......xperia sp, xperia zl and nexus 5 have non-removable batteries.......i dont know about the latter two phones, but sp does heat up a lot occasionally
james79, 25 Mar 2014Why go for Sammy tat? Nexus 5 is same price as these phones you have mentioned. Like I've said... moreNexus 5 is a great phone, but its biggest problem is that small 2000 mAh battery......stuff like a full hd screen, a snapdragon 800 chipset will hog the battery capacity very fast. Also the camera is not very impressive, in spite of being optically stabilized......s4 on the other hand has a micro sd slot, a bigger battery and a better camera......as for my choice i would not mind sacrificing a more powerful chipset in favour of these advantages of the s4
Wellwisher... :), 25 Mar 2014what you say about xperia L's camera..... i dont like the design of samsung.....they all are l... moreI don't know exactly how good xperia L camera is but from reviews and comments I think its the same as xperia SP camera.
james79, 25 Mar 2014Why go for Sammy tat? Nexus 5 is same price as these phones you have mentioned. Like I've said... moreI have only interest about its camera ..... I know it is a nice phone inside and out but I also want good camera... that can take good quality photos and shoots good quality of video.... S3 and s4 mini has nice camera.... but I hate AMOLEDS BURN IN.... my HTC SENSATION XE has a very nice camera but its battery and over heat problem annoyed me a lot... and also tell me about it non removable battery is really a CON..... so guys... I refer you to my recent post I have posted yesterday.... help me Dude...:)
k11, 24 Mar 2014Stretch your budget and go for xperia zl/xperia zr and if you can stretch it even further then... moreWhy go for Sammy tat? Nexus 5 is same price as these phones you have mentioned. Like I've said before SP is a perfectly good phone - if you don't want latest updates that is.
Khaqan Babar, 24 Mar 2014Kindly tell me Xperia C or Xperia SP????Xperia SP over xperia C. Xperia C uses same chip set as moto g. Xperia SP is a nice looking smart phone with premium looks and performance. It also has very good graphics chip. Some xperia SP have minor touchscreen sensitivity problem - stay well clear of the 4.3 update unless you want to ruin your phone - this is the reason I got a nexus 5 instead.
I am using xsp since 4 month.... I am facing so many problems... After 4.3 update it's hanging, automatic switch off, automatic touch presses, automatic screen On/of...... When I complain in Sony service centre in ameerpet/hyderabad.... They told sorry we can't do anything until next update.... And they are behaviour of taking is so bad.... So what am I doing now.... Please tell me... Please help me..
Wellwisher... :), 25 Mar 2014what you say about xperia L's camera..... i dont like the design of samsung.....they all are l... moreXperia l's camera cant even record 1080p videos.....so forget about that phone.....and it is not as good as sp in any other way also
Khaqan Babar, 24 Mar 2014Kindly tell me Xperia C or Xperia SP????With no doubt..Xperia Sp..but make sure u dont upgrade to 4.3 yet until sony release the new update..
to the one who says that the camera of xsp is sucks your wrong maybe you dont know how to use it. you can see the sample of the picture in the facebook group called xperia sp development join to that group and you will see
k11, 24 Mar 2014Stretch your budget and go for xperia zl/xperia zr and if you can stretch it even further then... morewhat you say about xperia L's camera..... i dont like the design of samsung.....they all are like twins....:)
izu, 22 Mar 2014Can this phone play 1080p movie...?Yes, it's stock player supports videos upto 1080p in many different formats like mkv, mp4, avi and ....
but the stock player could not handle AC3 audio codec and subtitles.
so if you use players such as MX Player you would be able to play almost any video and audio codecs with subtitle support.
Sony might not be thinking to bring kitkat update to xperia sp but if we users request sony to do so they can probably bring the update so everyone please either email or call sony for sp update they can bring update then.
@R.T.K i had the same problem with my old phone (xperia pro) it might be the charger problem.. just buy a new charger
Wellwisher... :), 24 Mar 2014i am new comer i sony xperia smartphones..... so any one here to answer my question please...... moreStretch your budget and go for xperia zl/xperia zr and if you can stretch it even further then go for galaxy s4 (it recently got a big price cut). There are people recommending xperia z, but go for it only if you want waterproofing as well as big screen......if you cant stretch your budget then dont go for sp (camera sucks), better go for samsung s4 mini or grand 2
