Sony Xperia Miro Review

The problem with too many smart phones circulating in the market is that some of them are really high tech with their advances operating systems and features and connectivity, while others are a balance between all these features, trying to make their place. One such smart phone by Sony is Xperia Miro.

Sony has launched a couple of Xperia phones, all of which share a somewhat similar appearance. Even though different, the overall feel of the Xperia phones runs through the Xperia Miro also. In appearance and built, the phone is good looking, yes; and also compact and slim, with dimensions of 113 x 59.4 x 9.9 mm and a weight of 110 grams. Its front is mostly covered with its 3.5 inch touch screen that comes with LED backlit LCD capacitive touch screen, with multi touch, scratch resistant glass and anti reflective coating. However, the resolution of the display screen is lesser than the other competing phones at 320 x 480 pixels.

The good thing about the OS of the Xperia Miro is that it runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich but the slight drawback is that it is the v4.0 while there definitely has been an upgraded version after that one. The chipset of the phone as well as the CPU are also a notch behind at Qualcomm MSM7225A and 800 MHz Cortex-A5 respectively. The internal storage of the phone is a generous 4GB, however only 2.2GB is available for users; this combined with the small RAM on 512MB raises a question of the performance of the phone being fast enough or not. However, since there is a microSD card the problem of less storage space is substantially solved.

On a connectivity basis the Xperia Miro does pretty well for itself. In addition to supporting 2G and3G networks, the phone comes with GPRS, EDGE, WLAN, Bluetooth, and a USB port that come with USB on-the-go support. These additional features make it easier for users to be connected to the internet through the phone while they remain on the go.

In the multimedia aspect the Xperia Miro doesn’t go too far, even though it does come with a multiple of features. The camera of the phone is a small 5megapixel lens, still, it has features like autofocus, Led flash, geo tagging, face and smile detection, 3D sweep Panorama and touch focus. The secondary camera is VGA which is way below standard quality, as is the video capturing ability of the phone. What’s good about the phone is its TrackID music recognition and apps for YouTube, Gmail, Google Talk, Google Search etc.

Given all the features of the phone it can be said that overall the Xperia Miro does pretty well for itself. However, the only problem seems to be the fact that given its price tag which isn’t so small, even though less than the more advanced Sony Xperia phones. It seems that Sony took a little too much away from the Sony Xperia Miro while not following the same proportional decrease in price.
