amazon Sony Xperia acro S reviews
+ Good performance
+ Waterproof and dust
+ Pre-installed operating system Ice Cream Sandwich
+ 4.3 inch screen with HD resolution brilliant
– Its interface on Android 4.0 unreasonable
– Bundled docking station can not be used with USB port
– Camera slow start
MicroUSB port, microHDMI and 3.5mm headphone jack are protected by a plastic cap, and the cap can be waterproof. IP57 standard, you can give the acro S into the water at a depth of 1 meter for 30 minutes.
The acro S has a 4.3 inch screen, 720p resolution display technology with HD Reality Display and scratch resistant. The screen is bright and viewable under direct sunlight, the colors are very bright display.
This phone uses non-removable battery with 1910mAh capacity. It has 16GB of internal memory and you can add to this memory with microSD memory card slot up to 32GB. This slot machine is placed on the left, along with the SIM slot, and both have a plastic cover.
The acro S comes pre-installed Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0), and is one of the first phones with the Sony ICS. Other phones have built-Gingerbread (Android 2.3), and only to be ICS after updating. The update to ICS on Sony’s devices are generally quite bad.
If you have seen efforts to Gingerbread ICS interface of several manufacturers is very bad, the efforts of Sony worse. Menu button does not do anything other than to call out two other buttons on the screen. A button allows you to install themes and wallpapers, and other button allows additional widgets. In general, the default way in or on the Nexus Gingerbread is still better than a useless tweak this.
Another problem is that if you want to access the widget within the application listed items, forget because Sony has disabled this function. This is absurd, especially when both Samsung and LG have their customized with ICS but retain the basic features of this operating system.
Also some strange changes mentioned above, the use of equipment quite easily. Sony’s Timescape widget still exist, even if you do not use it.
Besides water and dust resistant, screen acro S can get your fingers wet. Which means that even if your fingers are wet, you can still use the touch screen – this is different from Motorola Defy XT. As mentioned at the beginning, acro S can be below the water level of 1m for 30 minutes, so you can carry it to the bathroom.
The acro S is supplied with 1 charging docks, but unfortunately you can not use it to sync with your computer. Cai cradle charger task only when unplugged machine. The plug it into the USB port is useless.
Performance camera with 12.1 megapixel resolution only inadequate. The camera has the ability to touch the screen to select the focus point, but this capability is not present in the automatic mode. Therefore, you can use the autofocus feature on the touch screen, but you must find a way to turn it on. If use of the machine or the shutter button on the screen, you will only be able to focus on the center.
Regarding the image quality, the results showed plenty of photos to keep detailed, though somewhat snapshot indoor noise.
By using a dual processor 1.5GHz speeds, the acro S works pretty smooth. Camera startup time depending on which Test Labs longest format of Cnet Asia ever seen, but that’s when you turn on the camera with the shutter on the camera body. If you turn on the camera by photographing application startup time is quite fast.
External computer speakers is quite large, but due to be placed in the rear of the machine so sometimes can not hear sound, although at the loudest speaker out.
Time used when testing the machine’s battery is a little more than a day. Test the battery used is enabled to receive notifications immediately to your Gmail account, Twitter and Facebook.
