Processor, OS and Memory
This Sony handset is loaded with a dual core (STE U8500) processor (this is not a Communal processor) clocked at 1 GHz along with a GPU (DB8500). A powerful processor along with 512 MB RAM is a good combination for a smoother performance.
Android 2.3 OS comes pre-loaded but Sony will soon release the ICS firmware upgrade. There is a built in 8 GB internal memory of which 4G is for your storage and for downloading additional apps from Google Play. The 8 GB is a good option especially when there is no further support for external storage, yes the 8 GB is all that you have got on this phone and there are no slots for adding external memory.
The capacities touchscreen display is 3.5 inches with resolution of 854 by 480 pixels with 16 m colors which is just too good. Add to it the Mobile Bravia Engine further adds that extra sharpness and clarity to the images. You will not need any protective film as the display screen comes coated with mineral glass with anti-reflection and is scratch resistant.
