First time user of an Android device from another mobile phone manufacturer.
Hello, Sony Xperia V!
The screen’s clear and crisp, expected of Sony devices. I remember that first time when I unboxed my PSP and was wowed by the screen.
It also features LTE but the owner of this phone doesn’t really connect to the internet via data plan. Can’t use my SIM on it because of the SIM slot size so I don’t think I’ll ever get to test it unless I use a phone that also has that slot.
What I really like about this phone is the 12-megapixel camera. I know it’s not about the megapixels, but I took it for a spin and it is a great shooter. This month was a Sony camera appreciation month for me (will share more about it in the coming posts). Will post sample pics of this phone soon.
Aside from LTE, it also has NFC. The package came with two chips for that feature but I don’t think it’ll be useful in the long run. Basically, when you place the phone near the chip, it does a particular action that you assign. I guess it really depends on how this technology can be improved in the coming months or years.
I have yet to splash it with water because they say it’s waterproof, but no techie can ever do that intentionally, even otherwise, to gadgets for that matter.
