Sony Xperia E dual Review
The decision to include a dedicated camera button on the Sony Xperia E dual is rather odd since the phone only has a mediocre 3.2-megapixel camera. With a snapper that modest, the resulting images are of poor quality even when taken in broad daylight – seriously lacking in detail, color saturation, and dynamics.
Videos – taken in VGA resolution (640 by 480 pixels), are usable, but don't shine with anything either.

Like all of Sony's recent Android smartphones, the Xperia E dual comes with the Walkman music player, which is among the better ones we've come across on any handset out of the box. It comes with plenty of handy features, such as the lock screen controls, home screen widget, and the ability to search and download missing song information, in case your collection isn't too organized. The built-in loudspeaker is strong enough for comfortable listening to music, as long as the xLOUD feature is enabled.
Photos and videos can be viewed from a single Album application, where they are conveniently organized in chronological order. Alternatively, there is the Movies app, which lists only stored video files and can search the internet for information about them. Not that you really want to watch an entire movie or TV show episode on a screen so poor, but it is nice to have the feature handy nonetheless. Only videos of resolution no higher than 480p are playable, so don't even bother loading any 720p video on the Sony Xperia E dual. Most popular video file formats are suppoted, but QuickTime (MOV) and MKV videos are a no go.
