While Sony was able to generate some major buzz when it came to the forefront with its new flagship the Xperia Z, its mid-range line-up still needed a refresh. Although the Xperia P was a decent option from the company's Xperia NXT series, it didn't offer a large screen and had a low-capacity battery.

  • Best midrange phone ever?
    Aravinda Krishna (May 9, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Sony Xperia SP was launched in April, 2013 and I just bought it a few weeks ago, meaning that the model was almost a year old since its launch. However after going through benchmarks like Quadrant and Antutu, I was surprised to find that it performed equal or even better than the flagship models of 2013. The phone was recently updated from 4.1.2 to 4.3 JellyBean adding new features and new UI. However, I faced a lot of bugs after updating, but nothing serious that would prevent the daily usage of the phone. A KitKat update is likely given the phone's popularity, so that's good news for new buyers. The phone comes with a Dual Core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 1 GB RAM. Don't be put off by the dual core processor as it performs better than many other quad core Snapdragon processors offering a smooth as silk experience. The 1 GB RAM is sufficient for day-to-day multitasking, however, a bit more RAM would have made a tremendous difference to the overall experience of the phone. The highlight of this phone, especially for gamers, would be the Adreno 320 GPU of the phone. This will easily play the latest high-end games and Full HD videos without lag or stuttering. The battery is a 2370mAh battery, lasting an entire day easily even with heavy usage. Further, day-to -day usage with Stamina mode ON would give you a whopping two full days of usage. Verdict: The best midrange phone out there for under 20k that punches above its weight.

  • SONY XPERIA SP: M Loving it <3
    Sahil Prajapati (May 31, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    I nevr recommended sony phones before because of dull screen..but wen I saw this phone in sony's shop it changed everything..this phone pulled me towards itself. Its design, the way it is crafted its awsome. I specially love the red color. Its main highlight is its transparent illumination panel, which gives the phone a floating look. Xperia SP has properly utilised the illumination bar's color changing ability. SP has an 8mp Xmor RS sensor which is great for photography, It has 1.7 ghz dual core snapdragon chipset with 320 gpu is great for gaming. This phone can easily put most of the quadcore phones to shame. Screen is 720p which is great for watching videos. It even supports full HD videos and now it can play all video formats thnks to sony. I have played asphalt 8, real racing 3, amazing spiderman 2, dead trigger 2 all work perfectly. There's no lag while using the phone. Music quality, video quality because of Bravia engine 2 and xloud are great. You'll love this phone frm the moment you see it. Its value for money. Specially those who want to buy a phone in price range of 18-20k this the best phone avaliable in market.Even sony's new Xperia T2 and xperia M2 are same like xperia SP. Even the antutu benchmarks show that Xperia SP is superior to all the phones in price range of 20-26k. And dats why i give it 5 stars. And recommend this phone for others.

  • best graphics in affordable pricing
    Gunjan Shah (May 1, 2013) on Flipkart
    For those having second thoughts abt this phone because of its processor... This mid range device is powered by the snapdragon msm 8960 'pro' processor cloaked at good 1.7 ghz with adreno 320 graphics... The processor though dual core runs at par with the last years beasts tegra 3 and exynos 4412 and manages to even beat them in some benchmarks.... And the adreno 320 graphics is miles ahead of geforce and mali 400. To a surprise the phone beats the flagship beast xperia z and zl in some benchmarks... So this device is capable of running high graphic games like dead trigger, six guns, shadowgun, nova 3, modern combat 4..... Pretty easily at its native resolution of 720p So bottom line if you are looking for a gaming phone in low range , this should be your choice over the galaxy s3 and htc one x.....
