Good: decent phone decent price
Comment: this phone sounds really good
Good: Best phone for network reception I have ever had at least 60% improvement on any phone I have had
Bad: Nothing yet
Comment: This phone is the best I have ever owned, its fast has fantastic screen vivid colours and clarity, its so responsive its almost instant no lag when using in everyday tasks.
But for me its the network reception that is amazing, my house has solid walls and all the phones I have owned before I had to leave right up against the window this one I can now sit on my computer desk 3 or 4 ft away from the window! Its also one of the best looking and high quality phones I have seen.
Comment: So it isn't the flagship, this phone is awesome. I've had it 3 weeks now & still finding features not yet explored. The battery lasts me a good 2 days with normal useage. Maximum internet & music use just a little under a day but what do you expect from a handheld device.
Sony all the way.
Good: Display, 1080p video shooter, Performance, LED Bar, Multimedia experience, Battery Life
Bad: Probably the worst 8mp camera but acceptable for normal use
Comment: Probably the best midrange phone in the market at the moment.
But if you are after a good camera phone this is not for you!
Good: Good quality mid range solid and smooth operation
Comment: Am very impressed with the operation and Sony's quality and style shine through
Good: Ich finde es einfach gut, das es ein Handy für ca 350 € ist und dafür trotzdem LTE, HD-Display usw. hat
Bad: Nichts bis jetzt einfach nur geil
Comment: Nichts mehr zu sagen
Good: Almost its a very good phone gpu is superb .
Bad: some times it freezes & hangs..why..
Comment: some times it freezes & hangs..why..
Good: screen resolution
Comment: if I connect a diffrent headphone then the speaker volume goes have to reset my phone settings which is realy buggin. Other
than that no problems so far
Good: build quality
Bad: too easy to smear screen
Comment: disappointed find that 4.1.2 as installed by Sony doesn't allow for installing apps to sd card whereas it works fine on my Galaxy s2 also running jb 4.1.2
Good: Looks great, large battery
Bad: dark lit photo's
Comment: I disagree with this review's Bad points as it is a large phone but it has a comfortable fit in the hand and isn't extremely heavy. The camera is not bad but unless you are a professional you wont notice anything bad about it except for a little grain in dark area's. The sony app stores are just a additional extra and having them there or not doesn't make a difference.
