Sony Xperia E1: Sony First Budget, Music Smartphone with Powerful Speakers.

Sony Xperia E1, the most affordable smartphone released by Sony in January 2014 comes with a lot of features more than just an attractive price.  This smartphone has a lot to offer to the consumers, especially the party heads. As the title goes, having the most powerful speakers is what attracts the users. A smart, good looking handset comes with a charger, earphones and a manual. Initially released with a single SIM slot but, soon the manufacturers released Sony Xperia E1 Dual with dual SIM slots.  Sony is quite competitive and giving a tough competition to other brands with its new and innovative features which are quite interesting and attracts the masses especially because of its cost effectiveness. 

Features and Specifications

This single SIM smartphone comes with a TFT capacitive touchscreen with a multi-touch feature (2 fingers). 4.0 inches screen and a resolution of WVGA(480x800 pixels), gesture input and shake control. It has a touch panel cover glass PMMA. Built on the widely used Android operating system having the v4.3 (Jelly Bean), 1.2 GHz Qualcomm MSM8210, dual core processor, 512 MB RAM and 4GB internal memory which can be expanded up to 32 GB using a microSD card. The screen displays 16 M colors and it has a primary camera of 3.15 MP with HDR, geo-tagging and face detection. Its battery has a standby of 55 hours (2G) and 454 hours on (3G). As far as the connectivity goes, it comes with Bluetooth 4.0, WLAN (Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi Hotspot), 3G and 2G. It includes some other very prominent and quite interesting features which might be a reason for a great attraction of the users such as 3D and motion gaming, audio recording, smart connect, handwriting recognition and voice input. This smartphone also has some basic handy features which are a necessity for any kind of cellphone like calculator, calendar, timer and MMS enabled.

Design and Quality

This ultra-affordable, super stylish smartphone comes in mainly three colors white, black and purple. It is rectangular shaped and a little curved at edges which make it easy to hold and the corners don’t hurt the palm. Dimensions are 118x62.4x12 mm. It’s quite light and easy to handle and weighs only 120 grams. The whole case is made up of rather very light plastic material and the back cover pops off easily and we can see the battery, SIM, and SD card slot. The logo of Sony is in the center on the back of the case beneath the camera and the speakers are located at the bottom of the back case. Most functions work from the touchscreen but a circular power button is located on the left side of the case and rectangular shaped volume keys are just above the power button. Another button is on the top of the cellphone which is the Walkman app button and pressing it launches directly the Walkman app, the ultimate music experience.

Operating System (O.S.) and Tech

When Google launched Android operating system, it took the whole operating system market by a storm because of its user-friendly interface, performance and a wide range of applications for every category. Sony Xperia E1 is also built on the most popular operating system Android. It has the version 4.3 (Jelly Bean) and runs smoothly all the compatible applications.  It has JAVA support which is still a requirement for most of the browsers and websites. This phone has built-in Android (HTML 5) browser and Google Chrome.

Camera and Multimedia

The camera is an essential part for every smartphone out there because of the social networking era that we are living in. This smartphone has a 3.15 MP rear camera and does not have a front camera which is a set back because now mostly people want a front camera in their cellphones for selfies and video calls. But, its rear camera is loaded with features such as HDR mode, face detection, image stabilization and pulsed LED flash, red eye reduction, geo-tagging and white balance. You can also record videos with its rear camera of WVGA@30fps. It plays the video files in Mp4, 3GPP, XViD and M4v format etc. This phone is packed with tremendously powerful speakers which can play music at 100 decibels. It also has the Walkman app which gives you the ultimate music experience you want and you can change the tunes with shake control.  It plays music files in Mp3, AMR, and WAV format etc. It also has FM radio in case you don’t want to miss your favorite RJ’s show. 

Battery and Memory

The battery life of Xperia E1 is about 1700mAh, talk time of 9 hours on 2G and 8 hours on 3G whereas standby time is 551 hours on 2G and 454 hours on 3G. Sony introduced the battery stamina mode for this smartphone to increase battery time which is quite effective because it saves battery drain by turning off the apps not being used in the background which causes a lot of battery drainage. 512 MB RAM in Xperia E1 causes the handset to work and process things a little slow but in a manageable way. The internal memory is 4GB which is expandable up to 32 GB using a micro SD card. The internal is quite enough for a 512 MB RAM smartphone.
