Save all your photos and videos in one place

Carry all your pictures without using up the Sony Xperia™ E's storage. Photos upload automatically from the Xperia™ E to PlayMemories Online over wifi, and you can then view them across any device.

Get the most out of your phone

Stay on top your phone’s battery life with the power management app and make your Xperia™ E your own with the customisable home screen. And with Xperia™ Local connectivity you can control how you transfer and store media so that you do what’s right for you.

Have the best basics

As well as having a quality camera, long-lasting battery and an easy set-up guide, the Sony Xperia™ E comes with a noise cancellation option that helps block out background noises like traffic when you're out and about.

Make the most of your apps

With the Xperia™ Timescape application you can see all your communications with one person in one place. It works across Twitter, Facebook and your texts (via the Infinite™ button) to put everything in chronological order. So there's no longer a need to keep switching between apps to see what's been going on.

Get the latest phone whenever you want with O2 Refresh

Image of lock

Don't get locked into a contract – get a new phone whenever you want.

Image of Refresh plans

O2 Refresh splits your contract into 2 parts – Airtime Plan and Phone Plan. So that you know exactly what you're paying for.

Image of Refresh plans

You choose the right Airtime Plan (minutes, texts & data) for you, and how you want to pay for your Phone plan – whether more upfront or spread over 24 months.

And because you pay for them separately, you can pay off your Phone plan whenever you want and get yourself the latest smartphone.
