Unboxing the Sony Xperia P

Among the Sony NXT phones, the one that I think fits my needs is the 4-inch Sony Xperia P. We didn’t see this phone during the launch and there was a bit of delay bringing this in but the Sony Xperia P is now here with us ready to be played with.

But first, let’s do a short unboxing.

Sony Xperia P

Similar to other Sony Xperia phones, you’ll get a big, flat, square box for its packaging. A bit more complicated packaging inside will reveal the contents aside from the Xperia P itself.

You’ll get a USB power adapter which you can also use to power other USB devices, the USB cable to charge the phone, a generic in-ear earphone with 2 other different-sized pairs of silicon tips, and a shirt clip for the earphone.

The phone itself looks really nice in an industrial-looking way. Love the silver, grainy finish which gives the phone a rugged, manly look. You’ll see the transparent strip element found in all Sony NXT phones.

Not included in the box but should be included when you purchase this phone on authorized resellers are the 2 NFC Smart Tags, an HDMI cable, screen protector, and a fast charger.

Sony Xperia P

A little about the phone. The Sony Xperia P is powered by the NovaThor U8500 1GHz dual-core processor. It has a 4-inch screen with a Bravia display plus a technology Sony calls WhiteMagic for a brighter screen with good contrast as evident from the first time I fired it up. Do note that it has a 16GB storage but without a microSD slot.

The Sony Xperia P has a suggested retail price of Php22,990. We’ll post our review of this phone after we’re done playing with it.

    No microSD is a dealbreaker for me. Too bad ’cause I love their designs.

  • cretot

    Alin kaya mas OK GSII o Sony Xperia P halos pareho sila ng presyo

  • sgs2 = better performance hands down
    xperia p = better design, resolution, with nfc

    go for sgs2 if you want winner specs. style for xperia p.

    Also, check out some deals on stuff.

    Hi! Thank you for posting these info!
    I think this will be my next phone but I’m concerned the corners will be too sharp and pointy for long one-handed texting moments for me. Kindly mention this in your review.
    Pati na rin yung performance nya pagdating sa graphics-heavy games.
    I think it will also be nice if you’ll review its USB on the go capability kasi isa yan sa nakikita kong useful sakanya.
    Thanks! More power!
    I’ll be waiting for your review.

    • edges aren’t that sharp… mukha lang. hehehe. would love to try the USB on the go but we don’t have such cable and there’s none included in the box. according to others, not all USB OTG cables will work here so try daw muna if you’re gonna buy such cable.
