Features Of Sony Xperia P
The 4-inch Reality Display of Sony Xperia P is based on the proprietary WhiteMagic technology. As against conventional LCD screens that have 3 sub-pixels – green, blue and red, Xperia P’s display has an extra white sub-pixel. This makes the screen not only ultra bright but also more power efficient. WhiteMagic technology enables the phone to adjust the battery power according to the surrounding light.
Hence, in case of not-so-strong light the phone consumes less battery power and lasts longer. As the name itself suggests, the technology enables the display to render clear, precise and sharp output even under bright sunlight. It offers a little less (0.3 inches) screen real estate in comparison to the Xperia S. That also makes the Sony Xperia P handier. Mobile Bravia Engine, proprietary to Sony, powers the display of Sony Xperia P. It is the same technology that is found in Sony TVs.

The transparent bar at the bottom that gave a distinguished look to the Xperia S is also found in Sony Xperia P. The transparent bar alerts incoming messages and calls. The Xperia P dons the standard slab form factor. It is cased in aluminum unibody unlike the Xperia S or Xperia U. Despite the use of aluminum, Sony Xperia P is incredibly light, slim and yet sturdy.
Sony Xperia P is based on Android Gingerbread, which makes it look outdated in front of the new handsets offering Ice Cream Sandwich. However, Sony will make the ICS update available for the Xperia P very soon. The smartphone runs on dual-core 1GHz processor. Although the clock speed is lesser than that of the 1.5GHz processor of Xperia S, users would not complain of any time lag. Sony Xperia P offers smooth switching of menus.

Sony Xperia P offers HDMI connectivity to enable the users to connect to a HDTV and enjoy pictures and videos on a bigger screen. With the SmartDock peripheral, proprietary to Sony, users can attach a keyboard as well as a mouse to the Xperia P to turn it into a PC. It also supports NFC, the next level of sharing information.
