Good: sleek, easy to use
Bad: front camera sucks!
Comment: i like it!
Good: Has android market place - lots of good apps. Music quality decent, organised layout
Bad: sometimes doesnt respond when i swipe to unlock, poor camera and video quality. Broke when i did the worm once, Weak screen
Comment: I've had this phone for about 3 weeks, it was serving its purpose fine. I then went out and had it in my pocket while i did 'the worm' This proved to be a bad idea, seeing as it completely smashed up the screen, so it lagged even more than before. I wouldnt have had this problem with an iphone, if only i could afford one!
Good: Battery Saver
Bad: EVERYTHING ELSE!!!
Comment: OK where to begin... ABSOLUTELY HATE IT!!!
- Rarely detects im swiping the phone
- Apps and standard software overload the processors causeing it to "lag".
- Cosmetics are very flimsy
- Charger port wobbles
- Battery life is awful, if you listen to music for an hour you'll be at about 50% battery AT MAX!
- Audio when using headphoens is awful, i turn it up as much as it will go and its still about 50% of what i want, sometimes spikes for about a millisecond at the volume i want but then goes back down
- Apps crash 7 times out of 10
- Camera quality is appauling!!!
- Phones comes will pointless apps that take up space
So much is bad about this phone i don't know where to stop!
Comment: phones fantastic i would buy it over a iPhone any day
Good: Everything but the video recording.
Bad: Quality of video recording.
Comment: Perfect phone, excellent gaming, lot's of really cool features, quite fast internet and perfect definition when watching youtube videos. And really pretty.
Good: screen, looks
Bad: spec, price, sony software upgrade system
Comment: under the hood Its looks like the spec of my xperia mini pro but with a bigger better screen. hard to justify paying that much for a 2 year old phone. also when the jelly bean roll out happens users will be find out how frustrating sonys android upgrade rollout is. Im still waiting for 4.0 to come out for my phone and I have been told that no 4.1 will not be released to my phone due to the spec of my phone being not high enough. So how does that work sony when this phone is the same as mine (apart from the screen), and this will be getting 4.1 (allegedly). I cant see why mine cant?!?!
Good: screensize and design
Bad: else everything but good
Comment: I own an Xperia U and it outclass the J.
Good: Slim,Easy to use,fast,Screen Size, OS, Jelly Bean coming
Bad: Apps slow to load
Comment: AWESOME, I Love this phone. I got it for my 14th birthday(7th November) On contract with orange uk, it is a good 4'' screen and an easy to use handset due to the OS (currently on android ICS 4.0.1) and i cannot wait for the jelly bean update..... hopefully.
Good: It's bright and easy to work.
Bad: Lost senser
Comment: I've had this phone for less than a week and already my touch screen is gone, It's brilliant if you have a slow type, The camera is a little slow. I wouldn't recommend this phone at all, Not unless you're slow, patient and careful with the touch.
Good: smart, sleek, responsive to touch, good loud sound
Bad: slow on internet at first
Comment: Im very happy with my new phone. So much more then I realised to it! very good for the price too!
