The Xperia neo is an bargain Android 2.3 buzz which is advised for imaging; the 8-megapixel camera uses Sony Ericsson's new Exmor R sensor tech, which moves the base to the aback of the sensor and so frees up amplitude for added ablaze to ability the sensor's surface.
Pictures taken with the camera are excellent. While abounding phones' cameras aftermath murky, asleep shots, the neo captures colours accurately, and images had affluence of detail. Low-light shots had beneath babble than those from best handsets and there's an LED beam to help, but adusk shots were still decidedly worse affection than those you'd get from a appropriate bunched camera.
Daylight photos attending abundant on the 3.7-inch touchscreen - which has an 854x480 resolution. Colours are ablaze and there's abundant amplitude for web pages, images and videos. If you demand added space, you can consistently bung the buzz into your TV with the supplied HDMI cable, and appearance your photos or comedy 720p videos on the big screen. Alongside that awning is a front-facing camera for Skype babble sessions or cocky portraits.
The neo has a 1GHz single-core processor. It's a adequately bargain phone, so this is to be accepted - we tend to alone see dual-core processors on higher-end handsets. It still runs Android 2.3 calmly and Sony Ericsson's interface tweaks don’t assume to appulse its performance. These tweaks are about welcome, but we're not so agog on the Timescape amusing networking app, which displays updates on your home awning and makes it a bit of a mess. This is accessible to about-face off, though.
