Review of Sony Xperia Miro-Super Teen Phone

Entry-level smartphone from Sony that appeal to the young, first-time buyer who will have Facebook integration.

First impressions – Small and stylish

Sony Xperia Miro is a small nifty smartphone that lies well in the hand. The size is good and fits nicely into a trouser pocket.

Miro is a classic Android phone, with the obligatory buttons Back, Home, and settings on the front. On the right side are volume-control and at the top a combined power on/off, and unlock button. There is also the option of connecting headset via the jack plug at the top.

Sony has chosen to give Miro a different look than the many other like-colored smartphones on the market. The lower part of the front is available in four different colours: Gold, silver, pink or black.

Unlike URf.eks. Sony Xperia U, where the lower part is made of plastic that can be bright, is Miro far more stylish and looks in no way cheap addition. Our test specimen is pink on the bottom and is clearly a phone that caters to the first-time purchasing teenage girl.

Popped light indicator

Xperia Miro has, however, like URf.eks. Xperia U a light indicator that can light in different ways, depending on the type of message that has come to the phone.

The light indicator is hidden on the front of the phone, between the colored bottom piece and touch buttons. The light indicator is, however, slightly popped, and the question is whether it will be used in practice, or it’s just a game of “bling bling”.

On the front of Miro is a spectacular and surprising detail, which until now has not been standard on phones in the low price range.

Sony Xperia Miro has a front camera, which makes the user able to make video calls or quickly take pictures of themselves, to upload on URf.eks. Facebook or Twitter.

Screen – Nice, but with little annoyances

Sony can just something with screens. Even though the screen does not have the Bravia Engine technology, is it definitely good – especially when there skæves for the price of less than 1,500 dollars without subscription.

Miro has a 3.5 “TFT display with 16 million colors and a resolution of 320 x 480. Despite the relatively low resolution, delivers Miro a really nice result.

The image is sharp and have nice saturated colours. The contrast is good, but it squints to read the screen outdoors in full sunlight. Although Sony says that the screen is anti-glare treated, it is not quite enough to avoid glare and reflection in the screen.

Xperia Miro is a touch phone, but the screen does not respond always on first contact. Unfortunately, it gives rise to irritation, as it often is necessary, press several times to get started an application.

During the testing period, however, I have only seen pressure problems when applications should be started. the screen has responded well and without problems when URf.eks. applications or the Internet first started.

The sound is average

The sound by calling is very average. The sound is good, without having to stow it super good or less good. Both the receiver and sender of a call, the sound is fine, without too much noise. Background noise is present, but is clearly at an acceptable level.

Do you hear for those who use the built-in speaker to make calls or listen to music, then you will run into a problem.

The speaker is on the back of the phone, and that means that if you put your phone from you on a table while listening to music, the sound will be considerably reduced.

Sony Xperia Miro is equipped with XLoud technology, which makes the phone able to play extra high. However, this does not mean that quality comes with sound will be slightly degraded. actually, when XLoud is turned on, and that screwed up too much volume.

Internet-speed drawers

Sony phones usually have a fairly high speed, when it comes to the internet. It can, however, do not say is the case with Miro.

Pretty much every time a Web page to load via 3 g, appears a white screen for a few seconds and then the website begins to emerge.

It does not feel quite like the speeds we’re used to from Sony. And it goes really slow when it comes to full website and not just mobile-customized pages.

The speed is acceptable, but do you spend a lot of time to surf around the net, you’ll probably make you your considerations about Miro is the right choice.

You on the other hand, is just a major consumer of Facebook, twitter, and other social services, so will be Miro is really good first-time selections.

Are you on the Internet via WiFi, works the speed higher, and the experience will be more fluid. HD video is streamed without problems to the phone, and displayed without the notch and lag.

 

Camera and video – value for money

Sony has a good reputation when it comes to mobile cameras. And although Xperia Miro only has a built-in camera with 5 megapixels, so the result is quite nice.

The images are sharp and with nice crisp colors. In other words, it can be, if we bother to sit down a bit into the camera’s functions.

It is of great importance for the image’s color, which “Motives” to choose. Are you taking pictures of nature, it is a good idea to select the option “landscape” motif – this option highlights green and blue colors found in nature.

Are you on a beach, then select “Beach and snow”, because this option takes into account the strong light that most often reflected on a beach and in snow.

The camera in Miro, however, is not only a positive experience. By close-ups, the phone may have a hard time to figure out what to be sharp on.

Kept the phone close to a leaf that hangs on a tree branch, in many cases you will find that the phone focuses on the background instead of the blade. Therefore, it often requires several attempts before a close-up will be as one could wish for.

Under weak light conditions have Xperia Miro the same challenges as many other smartphones. It can be incredibly hard to focus. That being said, the result is actually slightly above the average – when it finally managed to obtain crisp and taken a picture.

When we now describe the camera, would it also be appropriate to mention the camera’s ability to capture video. Miro records video in VGA format, perhaps just in the bottom edge. However, it should be mentioned that as long as the videos just to be seen on the phone and share with friends on social networks are all plentiful.

Keyboard and messages – lacks customization options

Miro has a small keyboard. The size is of course limited to the size of the screen, but still it feels very small and I have often had to delete error entries and write again, because I hit the wrong keys.

I use mostly full QWERTY keyboard and hold the phone in portrait position. Here you need to be aware that a large mens hand maybe is not quite optimal.

In a standing position can also select T9 phone keypad.

I miss a little more options, customizing the keyboard for my individual wishes. Among other things, I have become completely dependent on the “.com” button, which can insert on the keyboard on most phones, but which are not to find on Miro.

In General, there is no right-sized opportunities, to select individual settings on the keyboard, as it URf.eks.is possible on Sony Xperia Acro S.

Battery life – reasonable battery life

In Miro sits a battery that, unlike many other new phones, can be taken out. Battery is at 1,500 mAh and according to Sony could keep power for 5 hours talk or 470 hours of standby.

In the test period, I managed to keep the power on the phone for about one and a half days, which is more than what many other smartphones can perform.

Conclusion – good first-time teen phone

Sony Xperia Miro is all in all a phone, which is above average for a potential first-time phone.

The appeal quite clearly to the younger audience with its integration of Facebook, small format and coloured bottom piece.

Generally is a very good phone, Xperia Miro with many good moments, but also its small-bugs and annoyances.

When one skives to price less than 1,500 dollars lifted the however, significantly above the average for phones in the same class. Here there is really “value for money.”

However, suffering from the same illness Miro as many other smartphones: there are too many pre-installed applications that can easily be dispensed with. Most users will probably download the applications they need.

Before the final verdict on the Sony Xperia Miro, you will get here a few technical details about the phone:

  • Android 4.0 – Ice Cream Sandwich
  • 3.5 “screen, with a resolution of 320 x 480 megapixels
  • 800 MHz CPU
  • 110 grams
  • 4 GB memory, 2 GB can be used by the user – can expand with microSD
  • 512 MB RAM
  • 5 megapixels camera
  • 1,500 mAh battery

The price is at less than 1,500 SEK.

Here is a quick look at some of the good and less good things about Xperia Miro:

PLUS

  • The screen is good
  • The camera is good for the price
  • Good price

MINUS

  • Slow internet via 3 g
  • Not always react on the first press on the screen
  • Speaker located on the back gives bad sound

When everything is taken into account and when all are counted together I’ll give Sony Xperia Miro 4 out of 6 stars. A phone that is just above average with many good moments.
