Description

Sony Ericsson Xperia neo V is a new phone with a catch as it actually closely resembles the Xperia neo, save for the fact that it runs with an updated version of Android Gingerbread, 2.3.4. Design wise the device is virtually the same, but when it comes to the specs it looks more like a downgrade as the camera now only has 5 megapixels with support for 720p videos on the neo V, while the original Sony Ericsson Xperia neo featured an 8-megapixel snapper. The novelties arriving with Gingerbread 2.3.4 include Google Talk with video chats, Facebook inside Xperia, 3D sweep panorama, swipe input and support for screenshots. The update also brings extended connectivity with USB peripherals as well as the Sony Ericsson LiveDock station.

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
