 -Multi touch is supported. 

 

Advice: The 480 x 320 resolution is taken into consideration while installing most of the applications & games. Almost all the medium level games will easily work. 

 

 

SOUND:

-Loud speaker is present at the back of the phone.

-3.5mm jack is present.

-SONY is well known for out of the box sound quality, given the thickness of the phone the placement of the speaker in it would enhance the sound.

-This is what the typical Ice cream sandwich music player looks like :

 

 Advice: A fresh new look for the music player is always welcome. Its official and its Ice cream sandwich.

 

 

MEMORY:

-A very large internal memory of 2.9 GB (usable 2.5 GB) for storage, considering the              under Rs. 10000  mark its the best in class.

-Micro SD card slot is present, expandable to 32 GB.

 

Advice: A large internal memory of 2.5 GB means a mega space available for installation of applications and games. Temporary files will not slow down this memory.

-NO LED flash for this phone.

-Geo tagging feature is present.

-VGA video recording can be done.

-No secondary camera.

 

Advice: For a phone under Rs. 10000 mark having all the other features, the camera could be sacrificed a bit, but in daylight a 3.15 MP camera can click quality images given the 2048x1536 resolution so don't underestimate it.

  

 

 BATTERY:

-Battery used is a high capacity Li-lon 1500 mAh.

-It should last a minimum one and a half day with medium usage and could last almost two days with low usage.

 

Advice: Best in its class battery coupled with Ice cream sandwich Android 4.0.3 should give you very good battery efficiency. But remember using many applications and playing too many games is sure to drain your battery quicker than expected so keep a watch.
