Sony Xperia SP

By Niall Magennis



Our Score:


Sony Xperia SP 2

The SP's camera captures very vivid colours, but even on a sunny day like this there's noise in the blue of the sky.

Sony Xperia SP

The colours of the flowers are nicely reproduced here.

Sony Xperia SP 1

The camera does a good job of capturing the details of Yeti's fur, but again there's a lot of noise in the surrounding parts of the image.

Can feel a bit laggy to use at times, screen's viewing angles aren’t that wide, camera pictures tend to suffer from image noise, distinctly average battery life...With all these drawbacks in mind, aren't the 8/10 score a little too high?

I got the phone on Friday and it stopped working today. The screen went black and I can't turn it on. Anyone knows what's going on?

I have just bought a sony xperia sp, and I think its a very stylish phone and is a really good phone and easy to use and would recommend it to friends.

The Sony Xperia SP is the worst phone I have owned. I am not a phone Geek, but have been around a few years and had a few phones in my time. I just want a phone to do its main job and thats to talk to people?. This phone cant even do that. I will phone someone I can hear them but they cant hear me, can anybody help pleeeease before I decorate the wall with it.

Actually it's quite a good phone and great value when purchased from EE on PAYG for £159.99 + £20 top-up. Sadly the camera is not that good but everything else is fine.

Your phone is clearly broken. Xperia SP has second microphone that helps to filter out background noises - I can talk even in a noisy subway and people will hear me as if I was in a room.

Screen viewing angles and camera issues is true, lagging and battery life is a bull***t.

Got this product as an upgrade on T-mobile on 2nd January 2014 and was straight away thrilled by it its easy to use android software with hundreds of free games, fast browsing and stunning picture quality, as well as the illuminating transparent band that flashes when you have a call, text ect. And also flashes to the beat of your music (which I thought was super cool). Now I've had it just under 2 weeks and the touchscreen isn't working AT ALL! I have not dropped or damaged the phone in anyway as soon as I got the phone I brought a hard flip case for it and have never taken off the screen protector. I have also tried to reset the phone but it hasn't changed a thing. Needless to say I am not a happy bunny and have been totally put off all Sony phones as I now don't trust them. REALLY SONY, 2 WEEKS?!

I bought this product to give as a gift for my son's birthday and it is nothing but a disappointment! It's a brand new phone and yet it only worked for a day and it went straight to the repair center. And when I finally got it back after three weeks, the back lid cover is BROKEN!! This so unbelievable and so maddening!! I can't even believe that they still have to send it back to me even when it's so obvious that they broke it!! One thing is for sure..I AM NEVER BUYING ANY SONY CELLPHONE PRODUCTS EVER AGAIN! Just that I thought I have saved some money for not buying an IPhone5, but the hassle is definitely not worth it! My son's birthday was last March, it`s already mid May and I am still dealing with so much crap with this product!!! GRRRR....
