This helps in creating a quality aural experience that is vastly improved from what users have encountered previously with both mobile and traditional fixed line telephony.

Sony claims that the Xperia E has also been designed to allow consumers stay on top of cost and power consumption. The data usage application monitors how much is being spent and the extended standby mode increases the standby time up to 4 times.
