Sony Xperia E1 Overview
The Xperia E1 is a compact smartphone that packs a punch at a competitive price.
It is an ideal first smartphone or one for a user that does not desire or need the absolute best of everything. The E1 has a bold design complemented with a healthy 4” display.
On top of this the E1 packs a speaker that knocks the competition aside - being the best in class is always a great coup.
Powered by Google Android 4.2, the E1's low price belies a powerful smartphone that can be easily enhanced to meet your personal style and preferences. Downloading apps from the Play Store and customise your home screens and notification tones to personalise the device.
Navigate from A to B with Google Maps, upload photos to Dropbox or create a document on Google Drive all from the E1.
Budget price, premium design
The E1 is built on a strong heritage of mobile devices from Sony and the design echoes the premium smartphones within the Xperia range. It doesn't look out of place next to the new Z2 flagship and despite the difference in price, will still provide all of the basic functionality an average user requires.
Music is a core focus of the E1. Whilst there may only be 4 GB of internal memory, support for microSD memory cards means you can always store plenty of music on the device, or use the WiFi & 3G connections to stream from your favourite services. Sony’s Music Unlimited for example is a perfect companion.
The rear mounted speaker has been designed exclusively to deliver up to 100 decibels; with this level of volume you could probably kick off an impromptu party centred around your phone! Sony's xLoud audio enhancement provides deeper and richer tones, whilst Clear Bass, Clear Phase and Clear Stereo all combine to optimise the audio experience, remove less distortion and deliver quality you would expect from a more expensive audio system.
Use the Walkman app to share you favourite tracks and create playlists. Do away with the conventional tap of the screen for changing tracks, just shake the phone to shuffles your tracks!
Control and interact with media through the 4” touchscreen. Created using technology from Sony TVs the WVGA display brings sharp images and crisp colours.
Capture images and video through the 3 megapixel camera and share on social networks with just a few clicks.
Dual core processing power ensures your device operates quickly, with little lag on more intensive tasks. Sony’s STAMINA mode is also available to eke out the optimum life from the battery, so you charge the device less and can stay powered and operational for longer.
