Xperia SP unboxing video

in Videos, Xperia SP


Xperia SP unboxing_1The Sony Xperia SP (C530X) is due to launch towards the end of this month, so perhaps it is no surprise to come across the first unboxing video. The retail box reminds of the Xperia go and Xperia U from last year, opening from a slit on the back to reveal the phone and contents. You don’t get anything exciting in the box (at least for this SKU) just the typical charger & cable, stereo headset and documentation.

The video also includes a quick hardware tour of the device and we have to say it does look very nice. We have also attached a few pictures below of the phone sized up against the Xperia Z and HTC One and you’ll notice that the Xperia SP body is not too far off in size terms. We’ve also attached another video showing the transparent bar in action while playing music. See both videos below.

    Why are sony releasing another xperia t/s similarly specked phone instead they should be far more committed to their existing customers Why am I still waiting for Jelly bean on my 8 month old xperia s all Samsung and HTC flagships have it?

    TN lcd panel :) i dont care about viewing angels, it is mobile device….:)

  • galafix

    Double post sorry.

  • galafix

    Not just the viewing angles, the blacks are obviously grayish and colors looked washed out. Bad for a mid-range device. :(

  • Dima

    I need JB update on my SXS!!! Its my first and the last Sony smartphone bacause their update politics.

  • Ryan

    Yup, they (Sony) need to improve their screen. Use something better (IPS or Super LCD).

  • afzal

    The wallpaper image itself not a black color. Its a grey color.

  • afzal

    Something wrong with ur current ics? Have you seeing any major different between samsung n htc after upgrading to jelly bean? Does samsung n htc provide newest interface after being upgrade? Sony takes one step ahead making all new user xperiance from ics to jb to their user. Not just adapting project butter but also give new camera xperiance, new layout skin, new bravia engine version and more in audio section. Its just being late not entirely being abandon. Do you prefer your xperia s upgrading faith just like xperia j where everything look the same but come only with a small make-over?

    So what?

    I really like the design of the SP. I have the Xperia Z already, so I think I will be buying this for my dad, since he wants to upgrade his Xperia ion.

    All these “unboxing videos” are imo for hipsters and douchebags. It’s like licking icecream through the store window.

  • hamboy

    That’s because brightness is set to max out of the box. Check this video for a better idea http://youtu.be/qLYqYbyXJi4

    Hi guys! I’m Alvin from UnleashThePhones. Well it’s hard to really gauge the quality of the display out of the box because Sony has coloured the default wallpaper and most of their UI elements in grey. While I’d rate the display’s viewing angles as being on par with the Xperia Z, the black levels and saturation are what I’d expect from a standard LCD screen.

  • anonymous xperia S owner

    First of all I do value the sony additions the Walkman player is amazing. However that does not remove the fact that my greatest gripe is that Sony is releasing a newer model which has a very similar in spec to the S and T. As this is the case when Key Lime Pie is outed in May at Google 1/0 it reduces the likely hood that Sony will release another update for the xperia S as there will now be 2 newer 720p dual core phones. Why didn’t they make there life easier and make a xperia tz or something as it would have been easier to update and wouldn’t result in an good previous flagship falling into insignificance only a year after launch. Do remember that the s2 got a Jellybean update almost 2 years after launch this was because when s3 was released the following year the s2 acted as a good mid range device. Will sony being updating the S for as long? Not as likely when so many similar phones are being outed when the previous ones are still quality mid range devices
