price N/A launch Dec, 2011

phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 4 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Compact size, and good build quality
  • Good touch responsiveness
  • Sony's Timescape UI over Android is attractive, feature-packed and quick
  • Good stereo speakers
  • Decent camera

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • No special music focus, apart from a special Walkman shortcut button
  • Bundled headphones could have been better considering the music oriented branding of the phone (in-line remote control is limited to one button)
  • Average screen contrast and viewing angles
  • Occasional reboot issues
