UPDATED Sony Xperia U™ – available now on Three.

With an illuminating strip at the base of the phone which changes colour to match the dominant colour in photos and music album covers, this unique phone is great for people who want to stand out from the crowd. The phone also comes with customisable caps that slot on to the bottom of the phone and add an extra level of personalisation.
