Sony Xperia P- Design
Sony Xperia, at a glance may seem to appear very similar to Xperia S. It has a curved back, glowing transparent strip present at the bottom and sharp edges.

Most of the back side of the phone is covered with the aluminum shell excluding the areas where antennas are present. The thickness of this Smartphone is 10.5 mm.

The Android keys are present on the transparent band and are pretty responsive to touch. When it comes to the design, Xperia P will certainly not fail to impress you.
