Sony E2003 Xperia E4G Noir

Sony Xperia E4g is a fascinating Android cellphone, with a 4.7 inches touch-screen, a very powerful 64-bits Quad-Core CPU ticking at 1.5 GHz, and 2 cameras, a 5 megapixels back camera and a 2 megapixels front camera.

Sony ships this cellphone with a Mediatek MT6732 chip, holding a high-tech 64-bits Quad-Core processor speeding at 1.5 gigahertz with only 1 GB RAM which is a little disappointing for such a powerful cellphone. Graphic calculations usually eats lots of CPU processing time, so the Sony Xperia E4g counts with an ARM Mali-T760 MP2 GPU working at 416 megahertz to help handle those graphic tasks. This phone counts with aquite big 8 GB internal memory and an external memory slot, allowing the user to store hundreds of applications and games without running out of space.

Sony made the Sony Xperia E4gavailable only in 2 colors: black and white. Even though this phone is quite slim and comfortable it's not close to being one of the thinnest phones nowadays, with a thickness of 0.43 inches. Although this cellphone is just 5.24 inches long, it's able to fit a a 4.7 inches screen. This cellphone feels much lighter than what one would expect from a cellphone of this size.

The Sony Xperia E4g includes a interesting 960 x 540 4.7 inches screen, giving this phone a very nice graphical experience. Its screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.

This phone includes WiFi capability (which can be provided to other devices acting as a modem), LTE 4G fast data connection and also HSPA+ internet connection, that is a bit slower 4G network or 3G fast connectivity, supported by HSDPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies. This device works with a Micro SIM card to connect to GSM networks.

This phone features two cameras, a 5 MP back facing camera and a 2 mega-pixels front camera. The Sony Xperia E4g also shoots 1920x1080 Full HD videos at 30 fps. This device also has a large number of valuable features: auto-focus, flash, fast burst mode, face detection shooting, digital image stabilization, geo tagging and HDR mode.

This cellphone also comes with some interesting features like Bluetooth (4.1), GPS and NFC (Near Field Communication), and some sensors likeLight Sensor, Proximity Sensor and Accelerometer.

This phone has a 2300 mAh high capacity Li-Ion non-replaceable battery that would have been great if this device wasn't so energy consuming. Sony afirms this device has a talk time of 12.2 hs and a stand by time of 696 hours. A big issue to evaluate is that this cellphone's battery is non-replaceable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it begins to lose its charge, leaving no choice but to buy a new cellphone.

This phone costs only 129 dollars, an incredible price comparing with similar phones. No matter if you are looking for a social phone, are looking for a phone for work or want a gaming cellphone, you will definitely love this cellphone.
