Created date: 02/24/2018, 23:17:49, Updated date: 04/04/2020, 10:54:38

We've conducted a detailed review of the Xperia acro SO-02C docomo, looking into its battery, how easy it is to use the camera, and whether the CPU performance is high or low. Not only that, but we've also evaluated how portable and easy to hold it is, as well as how nice the display is.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Xperia acro SO-02C docomo

Xperia acro SO-02C docomo's size

The Xperia acro SO-02C docomo is 2.5 inches (63 mm) wide, 5 inches (127 mm) tall, and 0.5 inches (11.8 mm) thick. At this size, a man with large hands would be able to operate it comfortably with one hand, but it may feel a bit large for a woman with small hands. In the case of the Xperia acro SO-02C docomo, it weighs about 135 oz (135 g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

Both the size and weight of the Xperia acro SO-02C docomo make it easy to hold in your hand and are unlikely to cause any trouble when you use it normally.

The CPU performance of Xperia acro SO-02C docomo

The processing performance of the Xperia acro SO-02C docomo is quite low at 1.5GHz×1(Single core), and you may find minor issues even while browsing the internet or Twitter.

The Xperia acro SO-02C docomo only has 512.0MB of RAM, which is fairly low. The RAM is regularly insufficient, so operation gets unstable and jerky even when using apps that are not resource intensive.

In rating the Xperia acro SO-02C docomo's overall operational speed, it ranks at the low end of smartphones. It will lag and feel sluggish even during normal use. In most cases, users will feel the performance to be lacking.

Xperia acro SO-02C docomo's storage capacity

The Xperia acro SO-02C docomo has 1GB of data storage. This is fine if you mainly use email or social media sites, but if you plan to take photos and videos or play games, you should buy an upgrade.

Since the Xperia acro SO-02C docomo is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Xperia acro SO-02C docomo's screen

The Xperia acro SO-02C docomo has a 4.2 inch screen. The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The screen quality of the Xperia acro SO-02C docomo is such that images and videos can occasionally be somewhat blurry. For general usage however, it's largely not a problem.

The camera function of Xperia acro SO-02C docomo

The main camera of the Xperia acro SO-02C docomo has a capacity of 8.1 MP pixels, and is adequate for normal use. But some users may feel dissatisfied with the picture quality.

The Xperia acro SO-02C docomo comes equipped with a 0 MP pixel front-facing camera, which is very low resolution. If you aren't particular about your videos or photos, it might be fine, but otherwise, we recommend a smartphone at least one tier higher.

The battery performance of Xperia acro SO-02C docomo

The battery of the Xperia acro SO-02C docomo has a capacity of 1500 mAh, which is rather low. Compared to other smartphones, the battery life of the Xperia acro SO-02C docomo is not very good. It's okay if you're just using it for calls and the occasional bit of browsing, but if you're going to browse for extended periods, play games or watch videos, you want a reserve battery pack.

Overall assessment of Xperia acro SO-02C docomo

The Xperia acro SO-02C docomo's performance level is that of a budget smartphone. It's a bit too weak to use as a main smartphone, so if possible you should consider something slightly more powerful. However, it should be sufficient for people that only want to use the most basic functions, like making calls and browsing the internet, and for people that don't really use smartphones much.

The merits and demerits of Xperia acro SO-02C docomo

The merits of Xperia acro SO-02C docomo

  • It's easy to hold and you can even comfortably use it with one hand.
  • It feels comparably light.

The demerits of Xperia acro SO-02C docomo

  • The CPU performance is not very good, and will become operationally sluggish when using apps.
  • The rear-facing camera is very low resolution, so you should not think of using this smartphone as your main camera.
