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

0. phoneArena posted on 17 Dec 2012, 02:46

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...

i still think anything less than 3000 mah for 1080p is cutting it very close to less than a day of usage

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

Isn't motoblur (ICS) closest to stock ?
And why their phones are still stuck on ICS ?
The Xperia T S J P should have been updated to jellybean by now

true, Motorola's UI would be a close second.

yes, Moto's UI is quite close to stock but all of their newest handsets in the US aside from the Photon Q have been updated to Jelly Bean.

I wanna sony to make their ui simple, to much of junk features makes their phone sluggish everytime... Of course I also wish sony to add some REAL AND UNGIMMICK daily features tho lol :)

Thanks for the red thumb... I'm just sharing my personal opinion tho, I'm sorry if my sentence hurt...

I personally think timescape ui is good enough to make sony a better phone, Xperia t is a very good example for me because of simplicity, if I want the special features, I will personally download from Google play tho, I personally don't like the messy ui, once I tired of that features, I can choose to uninstall...

I hope Sony fans understand me :(

I don't know , I used the old skin on the Xperia x8
But look , the skin is the same on the Arc , S , T and the newer ones .
But if they refuse to change , I am afraid they may end up like iOS which I don't want that to happen because Sony makes nice phones . Its just getting boring .

Also , on android skin , its either Sense or stock . Sony UI isn't ugly , just like iOS but it doesn't offer the simplicity of stock or the fancy animations , beauty of sense .

Actually, Timescape UI is the main reason why I keep coming back to Xperia Phones, haha.
I really don't feel like they need to change something (but I was hoping for an overhaul with JB), Facebook Inside Xperia is quite functional and neat, the music player is awesome, same for the gallery app and Timescape. The only app that I really hate because its always running in the background and I never found myself using it was the app recommender app. Besides, most of the main features from other manufacturers can be installed on GPlay, even PA covered this a month ago or so. But well, that's just me, and because of this, it's why we have different UIs to choose from. :p

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

I have to pay full retail for a cell phone to keep my unlimited plan. So I want an awesome this phone is good I have a Gnexus so not sure how Sony's UI is and want a phone with great battery life with aforementioned specs and I'll be happy.

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 .....is what i would choose :)

and besides if the battery on the dna is decent then this one could be really good :)

well..it'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)...so 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.

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.

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
