Sony Xperia Yuga Reviewed

Just when we guessing about the specs of Sony C660X Xperia Yuga, a Russian webpage did a full review on it. So, let see how does Sony's 2013 flagship perform with a Full HD 5" display.

The design of Xperia Yuga is very different from today's device. The phone has sharp corners, clean lines, slim profile, and the almost complete absence of conspicuous elements of the case on both the front and the back.

The design of the phone used expensive materials, which is not lacking in recent years call from Sony - both sides of the machine, use plastic with a glossy finish that looks like glass and the machine gives a chic, makes you feel that the price is high. Build quality is perfect, all the parts fit tightly, which gives extra points this unit compared to other brands.

The front of the phone has a large screen. It does not find touch or hardware keys, as in the Xperia T, using on-screen buttons Android. Grate the earpiece above the screen is the only visible element, while the proximity sensor, light is hidden behind the black plastic.Below the screen you can find one of the microphones, in fact, that's all.

The back of the phone is decorated simply, module 12-megapixel camera at the top, he did not speak, and merges with the surface. Immediately - LED flash and second microphone hole.

On the left side of the phone is microHDMI-jack and microUSB, they are covered with plastic plugs attached to the hull and quite good looking. Remain uncovered several contacts, apparently, they can be used with a desktop stand, or other accessories.

Unfortunately, on the right side of the phone has flaws, so on / off button gray and distracting from the overall design. Volume control buttons are located below the same location in the Xperia T, but because of the size of this machine are easier to use.Jack micro SIM-cards is above the power switch.

The screen is amazingly sharp with its 440ppi pixel density and image quality is great, particularly for apps that can make use of the Bravia Engine.

The phone also boasts a microUSB port with host mode, microHDMI port, microSD card slot (with SDXC support). On the communication side, there's LTE, Bluetooth 4.0 and dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n.

The Sony Xperia Yuga runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with the latest customizations from Sony and is powered by Qualcomm's APQ8064 Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset with four 1.7GHz Krait cores, 2GB of RAM and Adreno 320 GPU. The chipset's performance was found to be very good, even with the high 1080p resolution that the GPU needs to deal with.


Here some screenshot about it user interface:


Change the program to launch applications, you can choose how many screens in the standby mode, you want to see more refined application menu. In the dialer and messages now use a white background, but the functions they have not changed, even though they look nicer.


The camera is a 12MP shooter, which reportedly performs better than the 13MP camera of the Xperia T. It features HDR mode for both stills and video (that's a first on a phone)Another major change, a mode Photo Burst, you can do an unlimited number of series of images. The only limitation may be overheating the phone, but out of curiosity. The last significant change, a mode Superior Auto, phone it can simultaneously capture video and photos, while the screen shows the controls for both video and for photos. Also in this mode, automatic detects the scene, including the macro includes the approach to the subject or night mode in low light conditions. Function is well thought out and implemented.

At the end, we have to say that Xperia Yuga consumes a lot of power, however, and the Sony Xperia Yuga drained its battery pretty quick and got hot in the process. It got to the point where the camera wouldn’t snap photos until the phone cooled down. At this point it's good to remember that the Yuga is not ready for mass production yet as it hasn’t even been announced, so the final product might be doing a whole lot better. Expect this device launch in next year CES or MWC.
