Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo

Looks: Is a good looking phone. Draws attention everytime.
Speed: gets everything done fast. one of fastest phones out there. You gotta try it if you looking for a fast phone. Also u get the newer android version 2.3.4.
As most androids out there you get more and more apps available each passing day.
Sound: loudspeaker sound is not very loud but is clear enough. For headphones things get better as the sound you get is rich and punchy. Headphones that come with package are fine, similar in quality to the ones older walkman came with.
Video: make it to the pros by small margin. Are on par with other devices but nothing too spectacular. AF does a good job most of the times.
Display: is a great looking display and has very nice colours and contrast.

Camera: stills lack detail and dont look too crisp. Flash offers typical results: bluish pics, also is not very powerful.Macro is not very attractive either.
Battery: 1 day tops 1,5. Could be better, specially since the display is a joy to use.

Call quality is good although there is some robotic sounding caller effect. Reception has no issues.
Overall is a good phone. On par with the competition. Looks are the strong point.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo or the Android Vivaz

*I'm going to start with the obvious: stylish. Yes, it's a matter of taste, but most people I've met feel the same - the Neo is "quite the looker".
*The OS - It comes packed with Android 2.3.4 and all it's features. Goodbye Symbian.
*High PPI (265) Reality Display 3.7 inch screen. I've heard reviewers say that compared to a 4.2 inch screen, the Neo is in disadvantage. But that's just it! If you want a bigger screen, get one. I for one (and many other people) like a screen that's big enough to fit your needs and yet keeps the phone at a reasonable size to not bulge your jeans when it's placed in your front pocket.
*8MP Rear camera - it's not the best camera out there, but it's definitely a good one. And the high ISO low light shots are really impressive for a mobile cam.
*What you get for the price you pay. It's got the same hardware as the Arc, and a smaller screen which for some is an advantage, but the price tag is considerably lower.
*Bundle accessories. You get an 8GB microSD card, a micro HDMI cable, decent quality headset. For me the HDMI cable was great as i had previously found it hard to find in shops around me.

*Build materials definitely could have been of higher quality. It's still priced high enough to expect it NOT to squeak when you grab it.
*Battery life could have been better. You get one full day with internet browsing, gaming and some music listening, but we could have gotten a bit more from this battery to really love it.

I love this phone. The design is beautiful, the OS is packed with features, the market is full of apps and so many of them are free, the camera is more than good for a mobile device and you also get a front camera for video calls. The display, though clearly inferior to an Super AMOLED featured by the Samsung line-up, is still very sharp, bright and pleasing to look at. It does struggle in direct sunlight though. I've found no apps that don't run fluidly on the phone, so for the moment, the hardware is more than enough. If you can get past the occasional squeak when you grab the phone a bit tighter, and you're not hyped about the bigger screen phones as you prefer to have a balanced phone in your pocket, the Xperia Neo just might do the trick for you.
