Despite what is said in the review, Sony Xperia P has no lanyard eyelet ! The hole at the bottom is certainly for the microphone.

What matters is it function efficiently regardless of whats in it then its good. SX-P fits very well in my hand and pocket, screen display is ideal, the feel of premium aluminun is just great. ICS is almost the same with JB . And SX-p ICS update is great according to some users. I have not update yet, im still cautious about it.

the only thing that i dont like is 16gb storage
if they use 32gb that will be so great or add external micro SD. =(

I just bought my Xperia P and I'm pretty happy with it. Although battery kills me coz I'm a heavy user for games and internet, it got a really fast-charging charger anyways, so it's not really a big deal for me.. I chose it over sola and U because it has front face cam which is really good for video calls (which sola lacks) and has a larger storage capacity than the non expandable storage of Xperia U (though it has a front face cam) and it's slightly cheaper than the Xperia S. It's a pretty decent phone for me who had been using the obsolete iPhone 3g.. I LOVE SONY! I LOVE XPERIA P!

Anyone here who been using the Xperia P for months? I'm rather captivated by the metal unibody.. Is it painted/anodized? Will it have peeling paints issues much like the iphone5's back? Cos if it does, well, I'd rather stick to high quality Xperia plastic. Or keep praying for metal Lumia..

Love this phone, good industrial design, solid build with aluminium unibody, good camera, great mp3 audio quality, good sharp resolution on the display, would buy again! ICS is quite good on it too!

I have the same question here with Genesis!

Samsung Galaxy Sii with Ice Cream Sandwitch has better results in benchmarks and especially in Browser Mark.

How about Sony Xperia P?I am confused between Samsung Sii and Sony Xperia P.I have both seen hands on.Also with Asus Nexus 7 as my tablet.I know pros and cons about these phones...Sii is a monster Sony P is a beauty...

Sony should think over to replace/provide the big battery of xperia P. The only drawback of xperia P is the small battery only 1305 mah. This will also enhance the sale of Sony xperia P. Is it possible SONY.......................

Texting and internet doesn't matter to me its all the same But I think this phone has delivery messages which I like, and the current iPhone 4 does not. For gaming come on. It is quite obvous that this is the best choice for gaming
