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.
