Sony Xperia PRO Review

Score: 11.23/10

Sony Xperia PRO is a brilliantly designed phone launched this year, counting with a huge 6.5-inches screen, a very powerful 2.84 GHz Octa-Core processing unit, a 12 megapixels back side camera and an 8 MP front facing camera. Let's take a closer sight of what this device offers to us.

This time, it seems like Sony didn't care about the weight in this 7.94 ounces phone. This cellphone is a compact phone, taking into account that it presents a 6.5" screen and it's only 6.7 inches long and 3 inches wide. The Sony Xperia PRO's thickness , 0.4", is a bit far from today's standards, but it still feels in the user's hand. About its construction quality, this phone is built with Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 6) and Aluminum . Sony only sells this phone in color black.

Sony designed this cellphone with a high-tech 6.5-inches screen, and a 1644 x 3840 resolution, which makes all images and videos look beautiful and brightful.

Sony decided to power this device with a high-tech 2.84 GHz Octa-Core processor, bundled in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SM8250 chip and a great 8 GB RAM memory. This cellphone has an awesome 512 GB internal storage and an external memory slot, enough to store hundreds of apps without thinking about filling it.

This device includes wi-fi capability (and it can be shared with other devices around, acting as a modem), 5G super high bandwidth connectivity, 4G (LTE-A) really quick internet connection and also HSPA+ data connection (which is a slower 4G type) and the fastest 3G connectivity, supported by HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This phone works with a Nano SIM card to use GSM services.

This cellphone has two cameras, a 12 MP back camera and an 8 MP front camera. Its back camera lens has an aperture of f/1.7 so it can take impressive photographs even in low-light situations. It is also able to film 4K 3840x2160 videos at 60 fps, and slow-motion videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD) up to 120 fps (4 times slower than regular videos). In addition, the camera counts with auto-focus.

The Sony Xperia PRO comes with a 4000 mAh long lasting non-removable battery providing this cellphone a marvelous battery life. An issue to take into consideration is that this phone's battery isn't removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts to get older, although with such a huge battery size you will probably discard this phone before it happens.

The Sony Xperia PRO also comes with a wide variety of interesting features as Biometric fingerprint, Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth (5.1 ) and GPS Navigation, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This phone costs $ 2500, which is not cheap for a device this level. This phone is definitely a great option for you it doesn't matter whether you are looking for a phone for work, are looking for a cellphone to play tons of games, are looking for a social cellphone or are an amateur photographer.
