We have already discussed at length why the Sony Xperia V is the real new flagship and one of the reasons for this is the new features it supports such as Mobile Bravia Engine 2. We haven’t seen any real evidence of what improvements BE2 offers over the original Bravia Engine, but Sony’s marketing blurb points to “new real-time contrast optimisation and improving sharpness enhancement”.
Now that the Xperia V’s Japanese variants have been released, the system dumps for the phone have leaked, allowing certain exclusive features to be ported to other Sony Xperia handsets. Over at xda-developers, one of the mods that devs have been able to port includes Bravia Engine 2. Your phone will need to be running stock ICS and it will need to be rooted. You then have to edit your build.prop to complete the procedure. Users aren’t reporting a massive difference, although we’ll reserve judgement until we get eyes on ourselves.
