Sony Xperia Miro Android Smartphone Review

The Sony Xperia Miro


Sony Xperia miro front view

Shown above is the Xperia Miro, an 113x59.4x9.9mm device with 3.5inch display. This is a 110g handset which uses a 320x480 resolution display (165pixels per inch) with LED backlit LCD technology. Two finger capacitive use is supported and scratch resistant glass with antireflective coating is present.

The Miro is available in black, pink, white with silver and white with gold and above the screen we have the Sony logo, speaker and front camera (VGA resolution). Below the screen is the Xperia logo along with a set of capacitive buttons for back, home and menu. It is also worth noting a rather cool notification LED between the Xperia text and buttons which lights up blue from beneath when we receive messages etc.

Turning round to the back of the device we find a flat back with curved edges. The Miro uses a rubberised back panel which lifts off completely to reveal the battery, SIM slot and MicroSD card slot. Towards the bottom is the Xperia logo along with a speaker and up at the top corner is a 5MP camera with LED flash. This is a 2592x1944pixel sensor and features auto/touch focus, geo-tagging, face/smile detection and 3D sweep panorama. Video can be recorded at VGA resolution with 30fps speed and continuous autofocus/stabilisation.

Turning to the sides of the device on the right we find the volume keys. On the left we simply have the micro-USB connector for charge/data use.

Inside the Miro is an 800MHz single core CPU, Adreno 200 GPU (Qualcomm MSM7225A chipset) and 512MB of RAM. Storage is 4GB and for sensors we have proximity, compass and accelerometer with connectivity featuring Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP/EDR, A-GPS, FM Radio and WiFi-N. Finally the battery is a 1500mAh model.
