According to Sony, the Xperia range offers slim-form smartphones with an emphasis on display for excellent viewing. With a pixel density of ppi, colours look punchy and vibrant. Nothing is too bright or too dull, and one is easily able to use the device in broad daylight. One downside is the omission of an ambient light sensor, meaning users have to adjust the display manually should the light level change drastically. The handset houses 4GB of flash memory, about half of which is used by the operating system, making a microSD card an absolute must.
Although the smartphone does feature a microSD slot, supporting up to 32GB, users will have to pay a little extra for this, as one is not included. It is a social media addict's dream with various widgets facilitating the aggregation of social media feeds into a single stream. This keeps users up to date with what their friends and followers have been up to. Apps can be moved around depending on preference or frequency of use.
Perhaps Sony thought this kind of tracker would be relevant for smartphone users with limited budgets? I guess it could be handy for the handful of people on the planet who still send SMSes to each other. I was very impressed with the Walkman-brandedmusic player and the TrackID app. Using the music player, one can Google song lyrics, search for music videos on YouTube and even learn more about a band or artist with a direct link to Wikipedia. This is complemented by TrackID, a music recognition app that identifies the music playing around you.
How to take a panorama sweep shot on my Sony Xperia J
I tested the app and it worked remarkably well. The standard browser works well, but Chrome comes preloaded should users prefer a Google browser. If taking great images is what you are looking for, then I'm afraid the Sony Xperia J may not be the handset for you. The 5MP rear camera boasts 4x digital zoom.
There is also a front-facing VGA camera. The photos are adequate at best and often come out blurry unless taken up close or in very favourable lighting conditions. I also found the colours a little off and there seemed to be a slight delay after pushing the capture button, so don't try to snap any pictures in a hurry. Although the smartphone has Sony's Sweep Panorama feature something I really enjoyed on other Xperia handsets , on the Xperia J, the poor resolution and noisy images fail to do these wide-angled images any justice.
