Design and Body
Sola Xperia Sony NXT is not a series, so in terms of design, this phone looks different from the lines and angles of the firm and neat impression. Xperia sola has dimensions of 116 x 59 x 9.9 mm and weighs 107 grams, is quite thin and comfortable on the handheld. The phone is available in three colors namely black, red and white. Plastic material used to doff layers with reduced blotches and a steady finger on the handheld because it is not slippery.
The face looks quite unique, because there are differences in thickness between the bottom and the screen and capacitive buttons. There is a proximity sensor and light and notification light, 3.7-inch screen, as well as three physical buttons Android capacitive type. The rear lights are LED flash, resolution 5 MP camera, microphone, and speaker. The left side of the phone there is a microUSB port, volume keys and camera shutter button. The camera shutter button is the two-step, when we first tried to pressure to operate properly, but for the pressure to take a picture or loud enough to be considered mengoyangkan shooting. The right side only filled the lock / power. To the top there is a 3.5 mm headset port. Finally there is a microphone and the bottom of the hole to hang the strap / hanger.
Like the other Sony mobile smartphone, Xperia sola using capacitive type touch screen LED-backlit LCD measuring 3.7 inches 16 million colors with FWVGA resolution (480 x 854 pixels) with a depth of 265ppi. Display screen, this phone looks fine and attract the eye, but which unfortunately we are still feeling the effects of a yellowish screen that is also present in previous Sony Xperia phone. If you see a screen that displays color does not matter, but when you look at the screen with the majority of the white background, for example browser application, then the yellow effect is quite disturbing. Do not forget, the phone is also embedded in the Mobile Bravia Engine technology is said and indeed tested display images and video player in the gallery and look rich color and contrast.
One of the selling points on the Xperia sola is floating touch technology. Floating touch is a technology where you can navigate the screen without touching the screen. But we think this feature only as a gimmick, because frankly you are more comfortable with the touch screen to navigate. Especially in this phone Floating touch technology can only be used in the default theme for the effect and only to highlight the link in the browser application. So it is less useful than just for the'' wow'' factor.
Sola Xperia still use Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread is said to have an update to ICS 4.0. For business display interface, this phone uses the same interface as the Sony Xperia NXT that looks interesting.
On the main page can contain a five-page homescreen that can not be reduced and added As with a place to put items such as widgets, folders, shortcuts. There is also dock at the bottom to keep the four icons that can be customized. If you hold the home button it will show recent apps. Notification window appears smooth with no predefined shortcut to the connectivity menu.
To view the application drawer, menu icons are arranged in positions 4 x 4 with a transparent background. You can adjust the position of these icons and can perform sorting alphabetically, the most frequently used, and the last to be installed.
For the lockscreen, there is information that appears when you are in the lockscreen even if you're listening to music then you can come up with a mini music player to swipe into a large digital clock.
There are seven choices of themes that can be selected as desired. Well, as we mentioned earlier, Floating touch technology can be used in the default theme for the effect. So if you are on page homescreen, you can move your finger to float on the screen then the effect of waves on the theme will move as you do swipe homescreen page.
There is only one option in the default keyboard, the Xperia keyboard is available in Mandarin and Japanese. There is also the option settings for each language. When we tried to do the typing, this keyboard can provide a high degree of accuracy, so it feels solid and easy when it is operated.
As Android in general contact and phone menu has the same content just different sub menu highlight when entering the application. For business you can synchronize your contacts from other accounts such as Facebook account, WhatApp, Google, and other accounts.
It looks the same as the previous NXT Xperia phone. Contact names will be presented in alphabetical order and there are alphabet bar on the right to accelerate the search, can also do typing the name in column top.

To change the type of SMS message into an MMS you can just attach multimedia content by selecting a button on the right in the text editor.
Gmail app is always faithful to give you access to a Gmail email service, with the view that a simple yet powerful way to organize your email. If you use another email service, you can make arrangements via the Email menu.
Talk application is also always there to give you access to Google's instant messaging service is. Unfortunately, because it does not have a secondary camera, you can not have conversations with the Xperia sola this video.
Sola Xperia has a resolution of 5 MP camera (2592 x 1944 pixels) with autofocus and LED flash accompanied by to assist shooting in low light conditions. There are many features on this camera menu as 3D Sweep Panorama (panoramic photos with 3D effects), 3D Sweep Angle (object images with 3D effects), Sweep Panorama (a 180 degree panorama photo mode), scene mode, Smile Shutter, and others.
One of the advantages of this phone is the camera in the shooting method is rapid, even you do not need to open the first lockscreen. Only by directly holding the camera shutter button about two seconds you will immediately be able to take pictures.
The results for the indoor shots look good, though less sharp, but for the presence of noise and the brightness is better. For outdoors, the result looks quite detailed and bright. To see the original results can be downloaded via this link.
With Xperia sola you can do recording of up to 720p HD resolution. There are some menu settings to customize your recording conditions such as scene modes, exposure, photo light, image stabilizer, and others.
Gallery where a collection of photographs and videos you perform standard Android wrote. Comes with a classification based on the folder and accompanied by a distinctive 3D effect. Because the Mobile Bravia Engine technology embedded, then the collection of photos and video you'll look good eye for contrast and color combinations to minimize noise in the picture.
To view the 3D content you must select the icon to the right of the tab adjacent to the camera icon. Here you are provided back to the choice of two buttons to view 3D content and the second panorama to view the content Sweep Multi Angle.
With the integration of the Facebook service, then all your photo collection at the service will be displayed in this gallery, and you can also comment and like.
By default there is no dedicated application to play videos, so you have to play the video content via the gallery menu. Sola video player on the Xperia is not able to playback video with resolution up to 1080p so only in 720p only. Recorded only MP4, MKV that can be played, we tried to insert FLV video content with the format, AVI, WMV, but does not play. For the subtitle also can not be displayed.
Display interface is simple video player like the stock Android. There are only three buttons which button previous, play / pause, and the next button. Once again it features Mobile Bravia Engine, then display your video on this phone will look colorful and bright. There are also menus for simple editing (crop video).
Perhaps this is where the advantage of Sony's Xperia mobile phone. Xperia sola and other NXT series is equipped with a feature-rich music player and has a good performance. Inter face look attractive denggan good effects, and there are features such as information search, lyrics, video, edit information, with clear bass equalizer, surround, and do not miss xLOUD prevailing feature in speaker to produce sound output in the absence of tight distortion. Unfortunately the speaker was laying on the back, so if the phone is placed on the front surface of the above, the output of automated voice silenced.
This classic features remain present in the Xperia sola, as usual it takes a headset plugged in to be able to enjoy your favorite radio station broadcasts. Inter-face look too appealing to the presence of such a frequency bar so that you simply do is swipe the bar to find the frequency of radio stations, you can also search the current track information through the integrated application TrackID, and also you can give your thumbs on the song being played. You also can save the radio stations of your choice.
Browser on the Xperia sola can already be said to be a vehicle capable skating in cyberspace. Standards stock Android looks. This browser can make the process of rendering web pages fairly quickly and is much less pronounced lag is annoying. To make browsing mutitab can do up to eight tabs simultaneously. Flash content can also be displayed in this browser.
Floating touch technology applies here, unfortunately the technology only serves to highlight the link without can be used to make a selection or move the page. We can say Floating touch functionality in the browser is less useful.

Sola Xperia phone has a battery that can not be removed / is embedded in the phone body. Type of battery used Lithium Ion 1320 mAh capacity. Despite its size fairly standard, but to support you on this phone feels quite minimal, so that we can only expect to accompany you in the morning until the afternoon only with arrangements and normal usage. But back again depending on the network operator and the frequency of use of mobile phones.
Is predicted to have excess Floating touch feature, Xperia sola we think you deserve to have. Because the price of 3 million you will get a middle-class mobile phone with good performance overall. NFC features that you can actually use as provided SmartTags accessories. Especially with a design that we think is stylish as well as the weights are quite thin and light. For comparison we mennyarankan you to consider the HTC phones HTC's middle class is One V. One V also has a good performance, immediately get the Android 4.0 ICS, a larger battery capacity, and better screen quality than Xperia sola, but you have to sacrifice a dual core processor, a unique feature Floating touch, and NFC connectivity.
A good performance
There is no secondary camera
Battery capacity is less qualified
