Sony launched its flagship Xperia S in March. Then the phone had been shipped to customers with outmoded software. Only the Xperia S has been updated to Android 4.0. Second was Xperia P, better than Xperia S. It is a mid-level smartphone that obviously will impress you. It was preloaded with Android 2.3. Next is Xperia U that is apparently no exception. This phone is presenting itself as an entry-level option. The Xperia U is one of latest products of the Sony’s NXT series that had been released this May.

Design & Display

Xperia U‘s pretty design is one of the strongest advantages against the contest. At the bottom, the phone has transparent strip with an enlightened light bar that lets you view pictures or music by picking up the dominant color in the picture. At the bottom, it has exchangeable caps below to the enlightened strip. Four colors are available such as Pink, Black, White and Yellow at the bottol caps.

The Xperia U has a 5 MP camera that supports autofocus and LED flash. By using this camera, you can record video at 720p High Definition. The camera’s daylight view is clear and bright and it has a very spongy two-stage shutter key.
