Sony Xperia™ P is the latest addition to the Xperia™ NXT series of next generation smartphones from Sony. Xperia™ P offers an ultra-bright viewing experience thanks to the introduction of WhiteMagic™ screen technology, and comes with a 4" Reality Display housed in aluminium, unibody design for a sleek look and feel.
Xperia™ P also introduces the new ST-Ericsson U8500 platform, which provides a 1 GHz dual core processor with SMP technology for high-end performance. Plus, Xperia™ P gives you an 8MP capture camera, full 1080p HD recording & front camera, NFC, and a ton of other features.
The Xperia P is the first handset to include Sony’s WhiteMagic tech, which adds an extra white subpixel to each pixel on the screen, making for a horizontally-aligned RGBW pixel layout. for the less technically inclined, what this means is better screen visibility when outdoors. The difference compared to standard LCD and SuperAMOLED displays is quite striking -- the Xperia P's screen remains clear and usable even in very bright conditions.
On the inside, there’s a dual-core 1GHz ST-Ericsson NovaThor chip running the show, backed up by 1GB of RAM. We’ve already seen NovaThors in a couple of entry-level Android smartphones, and while it’s not the fastest dual-core chip around, it delivers plenty of horsepower for a phone like the Xperia P. As we already mentioned, there’s no removable storage to be found in the Xperia P, but the 16GB of on-board memory is a reasonable amount for this kind of device. It’s split into 2GB for apps and 11GB for media, with the rest being taken up by the OS. So overall it’s a reasonable hardware package, and a decent step up from the Xperia U, which offered 512MB of RAM and a dismal 4GB of non-expandable media storage.

Sony Xperia P Battery
The combination of a 1305mAh battery and Sony’s new super-bright display tech makes for battery life that’s decidedly average (though not entirely terrible). With our regular usage patterns consisting of web browsing, snapping a few photos, a little music playback and the occasional voice call, use we got 13-14 hours on the Xperia P before that battery warning light started to flash.
The Xperia P’s screen was the device’s biggest battery hog, as we noticed the phone’s longevity decreased rapidly the more we used it outdoors, forcing that brightness to crank up further. Fortunately there are two auto-brightness settings on the device -- one for max brightness, one for power saving. The bottom line is that Sony’s mid-range offering delivers battery life that’s generally acceptable, though if you’re a heavy user you may need to allow for a midday charge.
Sony Xperia P Camera
The Xperia P’s rear shooter produces great-looking 8MP shots in a wide range of conditions. Photo capture speeds aren’t the fastest we’ve seen on a phone by any means, but you can’t argue with the resulting images. Macro shots in particular are a strength of Sony’s 8MP EXMOR R camera, and the f/2.4 lens means it does reasonably well in low-light too, though the device does struggle to focus in such conditions.
Like other Xperia phones, the Xperia P supports 3D panoramic recording, though you'll need a 3D TV to play back content recorded in this phone.
