The device features a 4.3 inch IPS LCD, capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. It runs on Android v 4.1.2 (JellyBean), which is backed by 1.0 GHz Dual-Core Qualcomm MSM8225 Snapdragon processor and 768 MB of RAM. Sony Xperia P features a 4-inch TFT touch screen that allows up to 4-touch capabilities. The screen is scratch resistant and has a shatter proof coating. The touch screen provides approximately 275 ppi pixel density along with WhiteMagic technology, which adds an extra white pixel with the already present red, blue and green.

LG Electronics is a business segment of LG Corporation. LG Corporation is the fourth-largest conglomerate in South Korea. It is known for its various products, such as home appliances, TV and Home Entertainment products, computer products, etc. One of these product segments includes mobile phones, namely the LG Optimus series. Some of the newer phones under this brand include LG Optimus G, LG Optimus L5, LG Optimus L7, etc. LG also recently announced the LG Optimus L7 II Dual.

The LG Optimus L7 II Dual is a mid-segment phone from LG. The phone is a dual SIM phone. The device features a 4.3 inch IPS LCD, capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. It runs on Android v 4.1.2 (JellyBean), which is backed by 1.0 GHz Dual-Core Qualcomm MSM8225 Snapdragon processor and 768 MB of RAM. The phone also has Adreno 203 for graphics support. The phone comes with a 2460 mAh Li-Ion battery.

The phone features an 8-megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash, as well as a secondary VGA camera for video calling and self shots. The primary camera can record videos at 720p resolution with 30fps frame rate, which is quite a decent video resolution. The phone also supports various camera features such as geo-tagging, zoom, Normal shot, Panorama, Continuous shot, Portrait, Landscape, Sports, Night, Sunset, etc.

Some of the unique features on the phone are the Quick Switch Dual SIM Hot Key, which is a dedicated hot key allowing the user to switch between SIM 1 and SIM 2 with the push of a button. The phone also has a Real-Time Quicktranslator, which allows the user to scan a sign, a menu or anything else and translate it into another language. The feature recognizes 44 languages and translates into 64 languages. The LG Optimus L7 II Dual also has Cross-Tasking QSlide feature, which allows the user to simultaneously run two functions on transparent layer on the phone. The device also has an exterior Quick Button that provides quick access to the user’s favorite features and apps.

Sony is a prominent technology company and is known best for its electronics such as phones, TVs, gaming systems, etc. The constant dynamic nature of technology ensures that we always have a better and more forward technology than the one we had a month ago. The price of this dynamic technology is also high, the constant updating of technology requires people have that much cash on hand. However, many companies such as Sony know that not many people have that much cash on hand for disposal, hence has launched mid-range phones such as Xperia P that allows the people to experience the best of both worlds: technology and affordable pricing. The Xperia P was launched in May 2012 and continues to be a major player in the market.

Sony Xperia P features a 4-inch TFT touch screen that allows up to 4-touch capabilities. The screen is scratch resistant and has a shatter proof coating, allowing the screen to endure minor scratches and everyday scuffs without sacrificing on the quality. The touch screen provides approximately 275 ppi pixel density, though not the best ppi compared to the heavy contenders but the quality of the screen is not sacrificed. This is mostly because of the company’s WhiteMagic technology, which adds an extra white pixel with the already present red, blue and green. The extra pixel generates a higher level of brightness that does not cloud the phone when using it under direct sunlight.

The phone is a little bulky in nature, but it is easy to become accustomed to when holding it for longer periods of time. The phone is also a little heavier compared to similar phones, but again not something that lets the user forget of the other great features of the phone. The phone is encased in a plastic chassis, which is quite smooth to hold but is also prone to many visible scratches and chips. The device has a clear plastic border on the front that also doubles as buttons Home button, back button and Menu button. The power button, the volume rocker and the physical camera button is on the right side of the device, while the left sides hosts a variety of ports including the SIM card slot.

Under the hood, the device is powered by 1 GHz Dual-core processor and hosts the company’s Timescape UI. The user interface is quite smooth and does not glitch when shifting between the screens and the apps. The device runs on 1 GB RAM and comes with an internal storage capacity of 16 GB. Of the 16 GB, only 13 GB is available to the user and it is not expandable. The device houses an 8 MP Autofocus rear camera and a VGA (0.3 MP) front camera, which is a little bit of a letdown. The Exmor R technology ensures that the rear camera provides sharp, clear images, while the front camera does not live up to the same quality.  Though initially powered by Android v2.3, the device is now available with Android v4.0, which no status as of yet for v4.1 upgrades. The phone also comes with additional features such as Motion gaming, MobiSystems’ OfficeSuite 5, Wi-Fi hotspot, DLNA, USB On-the-go, Native USB tethering and NFC capabilities. The Xperia P houses a non-removable 1305 mAh battery, which provides a decent battery life and lasts almost a day. With the amount of features that are offered with the phone, the price tag is expected to be quite high; however, the price is quite affordable and will not make that much of a dent in the user’s pocket.
