The entry-level Sony Xperia J has arrived on both Bell and Virgin’s shelves. This runs Android OS 4.1 Jelly Bean, has a 4-inch display, 5MP camera, 1GHz single-core processor, 1700mAh battery, measures in at 9.2mm thin, and to express yourself it sports a couple removable back covers – one in white and the other in black. The Xperia J – for the specs – is priced incredibly well. Bell has this available for $0 ona 3-year or $179.95 outright. However, Virgin on the other hand has this even cheaper at $149.99 no-term.

    Finally a nice phone for a great price! It would be nice to see something similar in portfolio of new entrants.

    Just something to note about the single core processor – it’s a Snapdragon S1 (ARM Cortex A5 – Qualcomm MSM7227A), which is slower than the Snapdragon in the HTC One V, a Snapdragon S2 (ARM Cortex A8 – Qualcomm MSM8255).

      I currently have the HTC One V and i’m getting tired of how slow it is. So its good to know the that this phone is worse! Thanks.

      No, it’s not an AWS phone.

    It is also $0 on a 2 year term with Bell, as well.

    Yeah, this thing is slow, but other than that, it’s sexy, it have a flash and Android 4.1.2.
    I still won’t recommend it over a One V but it’s hard to find better for $150 outright.

    Single core, Android 4.x, Not really compatible…

    Worth considering Virgin’s HTC 8S which was recently discounted from $289 to the current $149 outright price. Its specs are comparable with a bonus that its running a dual-core snapdragon S4 1GHz processor
