Sony Yuga visits the FCC with 2,330 mAh battery onboard

Sony Yuga visits the FCC with 2,330 mAh battery onboard
Turns out that the Sony Yuga 5-incher is not vaporware or wishful thinking, after all, as it just passed the FCC under the internal coding of S0-02E, destined for Japan's DoCoMo, which maintains a US subsidiary this side of the pond.

The handset's design sketches look very much consistent with the leaks we've had so far, and the battery is listed with 2,330 mAh capacity, which is pretty good, considering that the Droid DNA battery life is pretty good, also with 5" 1080x1920 display, but a smaller 2,020 mAh unit.

The Sony Yuga is expected to sport a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro, 2GB of RAM, and a 5" Full HD display with eventually the brightness-boosting WhiteMagic technology of Sony. It is also rumored to be waterproof, as any self-respecting Japanese high-end should.

Simply do not like, and now every day thinking about the human mind that only Samsung and Apple, you say that this world is so realistic, so other brands have been plunged into the suffered, the product is not always easy, and sometimes good sometimes poor, when everyone in the moto, nokia brand praise difficulties, everyone put it to forget to say that this product is not good this product would be bad simply f**king s**t lies! ! !With your human brain to think about your mother or father beginning with the year is to use the phone only to comment! ! ! I use the phone and close friends or others do not like this is a reason not to share, I use the phone RAZR MAXX, because he brought me a lot of joy and enjoyment of the battery feels there is designed perfectlyalmost off the hook you look at the Samsung s 2 plastic f**k s**t rotten shell

my MAXX HD and I laugh at the notion that a 2330mAh battery is pretty good.

Soon the Xperia Yuga and one of its owners would laugh at your phone's display, mediocre camera and the list goes on. Pretty soon, boy.

haha, well i don't want a 1080p display on my phone, it makes no sense to me. 720p on a 4.7" display is Retina territory, i don't see pixels, it's still mega sharp and it doesn't drain as much battery power or work the GPU as much as a 1080p display. the Yuga's Camera probably would make mine look like a joke but i'd take the battery life over it any day.

The 1080p Display with a mediocre viewing angles? The camera that produces overly compressed photos? It's 2013 dude any phone that has a battery below 2500mAh is a big no.

sorry bro but playstation certified, great camera, cool ui, nice design, s4 pro and waterproof what i would choose :) and besides if the battery on the dna is decent then this one could be really good :)

13. half_21

Posts: 44; Member since: Nov 16, 2012's still a matter of personal preference..i would choose a newer phone over a maxx HD but if that dude is happy with his phone there's really no sense to buy another phone and pay for it for like $600 or more...what matters also is a phone fits the user with it's features, not all wants a 1080p screen(but i do),and not everyone needs a great camera more than 8MP( like me) choosing a phone all comes down to the user itself...besides the dude above only mentioned the battery and nothing else, so no need to bash him with the camera,screen resolution,UI, design, CPU..and other features, cause he's just referring to the battery life..^^

that's true and it's okay, i don't mind anyone countering the points made in my posts as long as it's based on an actual plane of logic.

14. XPERIA-KNIGHT unregistered

but also i bet the Maxx HD is still a hell of a phone :)

it sure is. i went to a party tonight and a good many of us were using this app called "Snapchat" throughout the night and thanks to that i had one friend who's Galaxy SIII died on her a little over halfway through the night and another friend who couldn't download the Jelly Bean update on his EVO 4G LTE that i told him about because his battery was too low. #justanotherMAXXWIN ;D

Playstation certification doesn't really mean anything with all of the third party fixes there are. it's kind of like Beats Audio in that regard, i can flash it whenever i want to, i did it on my Galaxy Nexus but i didn't find it to be worth doing on my MAXX HD. indeed, i'll expect a great Camera in this, in fact Sony produces the best smartphone cameras i think. i'm actually in the category of people that believes Sony's UI needs a refresh. i have OCD like obsession when it comes to these things and Sony's UI is just too disproportionate to me as is, i think they can pull off some great changes as soon as they set their mind to it though. yes, the S4 Pro is an important factor and the MAXX HD's lack of this SoC is one of the very few downsides to the device however my remedy for the MAXX HD's lack of horsepower will be supplementing it with the Nexus 10 which is equipped with a more impressive Exynos 5250 and will have Verizon's blazing fast 4G LTE to use on command thanks to the MAXX HD and it's longevity even while using the hotspot functionality persistently and remember the Razr series is damn near close to being water-proof themselves, i'd drop this thing into a deep body of water without much regret, i did it plenty of times with my original Droid Razr. i considered a lot before i bought the MAXX HD and i still believe i made the right choice but i do genuinely believe that the Yuga here is one to look out for if your idea of the right phone differs from the one i have based on my philosophy of having a good power/battery life ratio along with supplementing shortcomings with what i'll get from my Tablet in this case being the Nexus 10.

welp, sounds like you're good to go :)

28. thelegend6657 unregistered

You're rooted right if I'm not mistaken ? Why you don't want to flash beats audio on there ? No offense Nexus 10 isn't a bad tablet , but if you take the price out of the question I think iPad 4 is still a better tablet overall . I hate the new UI I prefer the honeycombish UI like in the Asus TF700 . Also the design if the the tablet isn't very pretty . I think the combination of an android phone withan iiPad is perfect you get the best of both worlds

yeah, i'm rooted and tbh Motorola's own Equalizer presets sound better than what i was getting from the Beats software. i use 2 different pairs of headphones, a pair of Mixrs from Beats by Dre and a pair of Heavy Medals by Skullcandy. i think i prefer the Tablet UI more too but i'll give the new one a fair shake and this is still a Nexus so i have no doubt that i'll be able to flash a Hybrid ROM before long. i'm way too invested into Android to ever justify getting an iPad even if i did want one and what i mean by that is say a new Angry Birds game came out and i wanted to get it. if i had a Nexus 10 i'd just pay once for the phone and the tablet whereas if i had an iPad i'd have to pay once for the phone and again for the iPad.

I own a galaxy s2, yeah a 2nd class phone by this time already, i planned on getting a new phone few months ago but instead i bought a nexus 7 which i use mainly for browsing web and watching movies, and last a day at med-heavy usage..and also i bought a ps vita which i use for gaming...and as of now im pretty satisfied with my galaxy s2, planning on using it for atleast half year more before buying a new one, besides i only use it for call and texting and some email on the go, so atleast itcserves it purpose for now...i use my gadgets for atleast 2 years, before buying a new one...still waiting until 3rd quarter of nxt year for new phone which i would really have no regrets of buying early 2013..

the SII isn't so behind the curb, it still has very capable hardware for sure. i'd love to have a Vita but i'd never be able to justify that purchase to myself. i usually don't keep phones very long because i'll either trade them for something different or sell them to bury the cost of getting something new before the value drops much by doing baby steps i've really minimized my spending on phones but i'm so spoiled to MAXX battery life now that Moto may just have me tied around their pinky until another variant is released.

Sony should bump up the battery capacity even just a bit so it can last longer than its competitors

2. thelegend6657 unregistered

Just like IOS , sony's ui needs an overhaul While Sense and touchwiz changed a lot , Sony ui still looks the same
