Vaio Phone Biz

Design and Display

Unlike most phones running on Windows, including the new Microsoft Lumia flagships, the Phone Biz flaunts solid, premium construction fitting of a high-end device. Its body is made of aluminium with its appeal enhanced by a chic silver finish.

The build quality is comparable to that of laptops in the popular Vaio range. In terms of the display, you get a huge 5.5-inch LCD display with a resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels for great colour reproduction.

Camera and Storage

On the camera front, the Vaio Phone Biz offers basically the minimum you’d expect to see on a midrange device these days. It rocks a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.

You get 16 GB onboard storage for keeping your photos, videos and songs – the storage capacity could have been better for the price, though. If it is any more cheering, the phablet can take microSD cards with up to 64GB capacity.

Processor and Other Features

The Vaio Phone Biz will be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, whose speed tops out at 1.2 GHz. Being paired with 3 GB of RAM, the CPU should ensure enjoyable performance, but probably not enough to justify its price tag.

Windows 10 Mobile is the platform on which the Phone Biz will run. Users will benefit from the Continuum feature of the operating system which allows the phablet to be transformed into a computer by connecting it to a monitor, display, or TV.

Connectivity features on the Vaio Phone Biz include lightning-fast 4G LTE as well as 3G, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi and other standard options.

Pricing and Availability

Vaio Phone Biz is not yet available in Nigeria. When available, you can buy it at leading online stores in the country. Vaio Phone Biz Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N85,000 to N110,000 depending on your location in Nigeria.
