The Xperia J is Sony's new budget-focused Android handset for late 2012. Unveiled alongside Xperias T, TX and V the IFA show in August, the Xperia J sports Sony's trademark "arc" chassis design, but with less meaty hardware. It's powered by a 1GHz single-core processor, with 4GB of internal storage and a 5MP camera. On the software side, it's on-par with other Sony handsets, running a skinned version of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
That's more than can be said for Alcatel's One Touch, however, which ships with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a 2MP camera and a 650MHz CPU. It's a pretty basic smartphone experience, but the starting price of £49.99 (plus top-up) on PAYG doesn't leave much room for fancy hardware. (On-contract prices start at £10 per month, with the phone given away for free)
Meanwhile, Three's Sony Xperia J sells for £149.99 on PAYG, and is given away for free on contracts starting at just £13 per month. That's not a bad deal if you're not after the very latest hardware.
