Final words

Sony Ericsson is introducing recent additions to their refreshed Android lineup as we speak. With newly found processing power, bigger high-res screens and HD video, even the recent Xperia minis are children who will prey on their parents. The incompatibility between recent and recent Xperia just cannot be overstated. And the Neo is certainly a part of that.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo has the latest features of the house. Equally vital – it’s the same features that they thought worthy of the flagship. Of course, the Neo will at some point have to worry about the lack of dual core and 1080p video. But it will be a while before they start to create a real difference. And when they will, the Arc will be standing in front to cushion the blow.

There’ll be enough room for the Xperia Neo to cover behind its bigger sibling’s back. The Arc flaunts a massive 4.2” screen. It’s one of the prettiest phones lately but all the coolness will cost you more.

The XPERIA Neo’s more likely rivals are nowhere near the description of a flagship. But with enough Gingerbread phones around, the competition is pretty strong. Let’s have a look.

The Samsung I9000 Galaxy S is a bestseller with loyal fans around the world. The 4” SuperAMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) classy screen and the 1Giga Hertz (GHz) processor have just received a boost from Gingerbread. An excellent package has just got better but it’s an older phone that will be gradually weaned off Operating System (OS) support. Price is in the Galaxy’s favor, and so is the SuperAMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) classy screen (if you’re lucky). It’s a tie in terms of video, the Neo getting the upper hand in still imaging.

The HTC Desire S is friendly and compact but you’d be incorrect to underestimate its ability. Gingerbread-powered, beautifully built and HTC-Sensed, the Desire S is a viable alternative except in the imaging department. The 720p videos are quite fine but stills are obviously no match for the Xperia Neo’s 8MP photos.

If you need a real contender for imaging skills, it must be no other than the Nokia N8. The bigger 12 MegaPixel (MP) sensor, the Xenon flash and the 3x zoom in video capture leave small doubt as to which one is the superior cameraphone. With Gingerbread inside though, the Xperia Neo is the better smartphone.

A smartphone and a cameraphone, the XPERIA Neo promises solid all-round experience, which it readily delivers. It won’t slit it as a flagship but fortunately that’s not part of the job description. The Xperia Neo will like the sense of space and safety in the upper midrange. And it will certainly hold pride in being an option some users will gladly consider ahead of the Xperia Arc.
