Sony Yuga 5" Full HD phone gets previewed, your microSD prayers are answered

0. phoneArena 18 Dec 2012, 02:38 posted on

Sony managed to find place for a microSD card slot on the side of the unibody chassis, and even threw in a microHDMI port for hooking it up to a TV, how's that for a well-rounded device...

Why would you view it sideway ?

Watching videos/photos are better viewed in all angles. Don't get me wrong I have an Experia Arc, the screen on that phones is awesome when viewed head on, but when watching movies with someone else, a slight tilting and the colors and contrast washes out thus making it dull to look at. Also I'm not buying the "why would you view it sideway when you can view it head on" crap anymore. Since it's a high end phone I don't want to see any compromise attach to it. That's just my opinion btw.

Sony needs to sacrifice some parts on the phone so that you wont brag about the price. One thing this is the only high end phone for 2013 that support waterproof. Can u just be happy and no need to worry about ur phone gettin wet.

Xperia P users :) on any angle of screen

Sacrifice some parts of the phone? Yet they price it comparatively with Samsung's high ends? Me brag about the price? Hell no, I'll buy a phone for personal entertainment and not to brag it (I ain't a shallow person). I thought to myself that I should reserve judgement when the final unit is officially release but after reading recent SONY articles both here and over at Xperiablog I got discouraged to buy any SONY phone come 2013 because of the BS they're makin' in regards to updating their 2012 devices. . . Looks like Samsung has a new customer in me. . .

Once again PhoneArena makes the phone sounds less amazing than in the actual review.
The reviewer was more enthusiast than stated in this article.

Seriuosly PhoneArena is getting worse day by day and misinforming about Sony all the time... Eldar never mentioned that it has 16GB internal storage... He has no idea how much memory it has... Most likely it'll be 32GB... Then... He had stated Yuga's camera is much more impressive than Xperia T's and HDR mode is amazing... Night mode is not bad but gives less details... Overall camera is excellent... And it can accept micro SD card upto 128GB... PhoneArena You're either spreading false infos about Sony or bad at translating...
Fix things up....

PhoneArena, read the translaction carefully! ;)
Murtazin said that the camera goes down to 12 MP from the 13 MP of the T, but the output is better with more detail and better colors. That's what he says.
So, since the T camera is at least on par with the best smartphones of the other manufacturers, I think we can expect excellent results.
What's more we have HDR, HDR in videos (!), unlimited burst shot...
I think you should amend the article! ;)

So, is the screen really full HD (1920 x 1080) or is it some other variation of a 1080p display (as indicated by the AnTuTu System Info screen shot), namely 1776 x 1080? Since Sony presumably makes their own display, it could be non-standard "full HD". If one scales the screenshot, the aspect ratio of the display is ~1.644, which is 1776 x 1080.

It's a 13MP Exmor RS camera, just a quick note from XperiaBlog:

"Regarding the camera, whilst the preview says it has a 12MP camera, we believe the author is misinformed and most likely the handset is running in Superior Auto mode, limiting the resolution to 12MP (which is why you see this resolution in the screencaps below). The camera is in fact using a 13MP Exmor RS stacked CMOS sensor."

Who the F*** did the translation? Mobile-review.com states that the camera is much better on Yuga than on Xperia T.

Knowing Sony, they'd probably launch this phone only AFTER Tegra 4 and Snapdragon S5 devices are all over the market.
