The Bottom Line Despite needing a few improvements, the Sony Xperia P is one of the better handsets from Sony this year. Unfortunately, that's not saying a lot. A few quibbles notwithstanding, the powerhouse HTC One is a beautifully crafted, near-ideal smartphone. If you can get past its steep price, the massive-screened Motorola Droid Maxx is currently Verizon’s best Android smartphone. If beauty is your only priority, the Sony Xperia P will certainly satisfy, but power isn't this unlocked phone's forte. Sony's pricey, stylish Xperia S is packed with multimedia tricks but is undone by a slow processor and lackluster display.
