The Sony Xperia J is considered to be the smallest and yet affordable version of the Sony Xperia T. Basically, it has the same design style as its sister but offers much less in terms of features and specifications, thus making it an affordable phone.
The handset has a small 4.0-inches TFT capacitive touchscreen display with multi-touch features. It incorporates 480 x 854 pixels with 245 pixels per inch density and protected with a Corning Gorilla Glass. However, the Xperia J is.55-inches smaller and less sensitive that the Xperia T, both are integrated with the Sony Mobile Bravia Engine system that enhances the video and display of the unit.
The Sony Xperia J looks remarkably like the Xperia T with its same arched back that is designed to feel and fit snugly in one hand. The only difference is that, with the Sony Xperia J, you can take off the back cover which gives you access to the MicroSD slot to further expand its memory, the SIM card port and the 1750 mAh Li-Ion battery.
The handset is only equipped with a 1GHz single core processor from Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S1 (MSM7227A) and a 512MB of RAM. It is powered with Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Though only functioning with a single core processor, this is not an issue with the Sony Xperia J, for it has no problem associated with the working capabilities of its processor and operating system. The unit seems to have run the OS smoothly without lag or delay.
This budget friendly Smartphone is stuffed with two snappers, one in front and the other one on the rear side. The rear camera delivers 5-Megapixel with 4x digital zoom, along with Auto focus, LED flash, Geo-tagging and a VGA video recording. Nonetheless, the Xperia J’s front camera may not be as good as the Xperia T, but it isn’t bad at all considering at how affordable the unit is.
The video playback on the phone is amazingly surprising. Thanks to the integrated Sony Mobile Bravia Engine, it gave the phone a more distinct viewing pleasure. The unit is extremely comfortable to hold while watching movies because it only weighs 124 grams and it doesn’t cause any strain on the arm.
Included with the Sony Xperia J is the enhancement of its audio playback and the Walkman application. The audio playback through the phone’s built in speaker provides louder volume without distorting the audio quality of the music played. This is all made possible with Sony’s xLoud software.
The Smartphone is powered by a Lithium Ion 1750 mAh battery which gives life to the phone for about 607 hours on 2G and 618 hours on 3G on standby mode and talk time life of 5 hours on 2G and up to 7 hours on 3G networks.
The Sony Xperia J might not be as impressive in comparison to the Sony Xperia T, but it does its job very well according to how it was designed and according to how it is supposed to function. On the other hand, it is a decent phone. However there is still no confirmed price of the said unit but it will definitely be much cheaper than its predecessors.
