The last of Sony's trio of new phones, unveiled at IFA, is another budget deal from the big S. The Xperia J forgoes the top-notch screen on the better

Sony Xperia J review

 

Can the Sony Ericsson inspired J jump in and make a splash?

Nice design ; Good battery life ; Decent price

Very laggy ; Poor camera ; Awful keyboard

The Sony Xperia J is the smaller and cheaper brother to James Bond's Xperia T, but don't expect to find this handset mingling with scantily clad women - the Xperia J is far more reserved, less flamboyant, happier to stay out of the limelight and just...

The Xperia J has a slick design, but does it have the performance to match?

Good screen, Long battery life, Stylish design

Sluggish performance, Poor camera, Jelly Bean update won’t arrive until next year

Sony Xperia J Review: In Depth

 

The Sony Xperia J takes on the mid-range smartphone market head-on with its £200 pricepoint, but don't curb your expectations - £200 can get you quite a lot these days. What does the Xperia J bring…

Great screen ; Long lasting battery ; Beautiful design

Underpowered for price ; Stuttery user interface ; Camera exposure issues

Sony Xperia J

 

The Sony Xperia J brings the styling and software of Sony's top notch Xperia T phone downmarket. Like its Bond-backed bigger brother, it packs a curved plastic shell, but there's a smaller four-inch screen and a lower power 1GHz processor and five...

Sadly, the Sony Xperia J’s just not worth your time in late 2012: top notch phones that came out earlier this year, like the HTC One X and One S - and even last year’s Samsung Galaxy S2 - are around the same price on contract, and much more powerful,...

Sony Xperia J

 

Affordable and stylish, the Xperia J is a mid-range Android smartphone from Sony with a compelling set of premium features. With a sleek design and handy notification light, the Xperia J has the look of a more expensive phone and offers solid performance.

Stylish, modern design, Sharp 4” display , 5 megapixel camera

Mid-range 1 GHz processor, Doesn´t ship with Android Jelly Bean

Notebookcheck's Best of January 2013 ? Smartphone and Tablet Edition

 

Slow start. December 2012 was led by the search engine giant Google. The beginning of the New Year was however a bit quieter. Tablets from some low-cost suppliers found their way to our test lab and presented very mixed results. January was themed...

The offered concept. A coherent overall package for a midrange smartphone although the screen's low resolution spoils the fun
