I got this model month and a half ago, and compared to old Xperia X8, this is really top quality as far as manufacturing is concerned. It's weight ads somehow to reliability and stable fitting in the hand.
My specific piece don't have any kind of microphone problem, but I know some people complained to that. On the other hand, my device have some issues with GPS, where it almost always needs some ~10 minutes to lock the location for a first time. After that first time, it locks relatively good, but after reboot or few days, it's the same, hard to get a fix prob... Tried many tweaks, no success...

> In reply to loughie @ 2013-10-28 03:01 from LeSr - click to readGo to engineering menu via *#*#2584560#*#*, go to AUDIO, find 1.1 Normal mode and 1.3. LoudSpeaker Mode and set its sensitivity to 200. Test it out. This helped me. Also drill bigger mic hole into the cover.

I purchased this phone about two months ago.
I like the following:
Plenty of internal memory.
What I dont like
Choose the "Settings" option hangs the phone a lot.
Takes 8 hrs to charge
You only get 6 hrs out of your charge so if you are going out in the evening, more than likely your battery will be empty by the time you are going home. So I dont find it reialbe when I am going out.
Sound: When you lower the ring tone on your phone, this also lowers the volume of a call, so you are either higher up the sound to hear your converstation and then lowering it back down so the ring tone is not to high.
Phone needed a software upgrade, when I accepted the upgrade if formatted my phone, I lost all messages, calendar events...very annoying.
For what I spent on the phone I am a little bit disaappointed in what I have got, but I am hoping that they will improve their battery time and charging time. IT might make the phone more appealing.

Regarding the mic sensitivity there are 2 ways to improve it.
1. Make the mic pinhole bigger with driller
2. Increase the mic sensitivity in the service menu.
Small service menu * # * # 4636 # * # *
Big service menu * # * # 2584560 # * # *
Mic sensitivity: 0-255
Go to AUDIO. Loot list:
1.1. Normal Mode (Normal)
1.2. Headset Mode (Mode Headset)
1.3. LoudSpeaker Mode - Setting the speaker (the one Handfree mode?)
1.4. Speech Enhancement (Improving speech)
1.5. Debug Info (debug information)
1.6. Speech Logger (logging of conversations, apparently).
1.7. Audio logger-is an audio logger (software for recording audio) with the ability to quickly find, play and save.
2. Select the mode you want.
Normal Mode, (if you want to increase the volume of the earpiece and microphone). You'll see a menu with four positions, where the first item is the number of the profile. Try to increase it to about 200.
Type "Mic" levels 112,136,160,184,208,232,255

When I "send/receive" the MMS, the issue message occur (Transmission failure. Will retry later).
The message text it's displayed correctly, but the attached "photo/video" are missed (empty).
I tried to change settings, other SIM cards, other MMS applications, etc. without no succes.
Any idea, solution? Thanks!

Hi, I have this phone around a month ago. The battery is not the best (the apps eat up it very quickly) thus I have always a charger with me. So it does not cause too much problems with me.
It is not as heavy as my prev (HTC Desire HD) was. The dual sim is OK, you can easily switch between them when you call someone/send an sms.
My only problem is with the GPS. It takes about 10 minutes to find the exact position.
Anyway, I do not want to change this telephone. :)

I'm looking for a dual sim android, and I like this one. Does anybody knows does it have LED notifications, usb otg and gorilla glass (I think it has none of those, but not sure)? And as I understand it has a radio transmitter? I loved that on one of my old symbian nokias. Ony a little concerned about the battery, cause I'm a heavy user. Any experience with this phone, more info or a suggestion would be nice. Thanx in advance!
