First time i read the comments are : oh come on man.. what do you expect from this prize? Read the spec carefully..

i just bought 2 days ago and actually i'm pretty pleased bcoz i used my phone only for whatsapp,browsing,social media, text&calls, and sometimes playing games.. and it runs pretty well on XJ

for the sensitivity i think it's nice just like my Xperia Ray, of course it's lag but thats not something that hapenned all the time just like Ray,
for the camera i think it's not satisfied me but i'm not using the camera very often so it doesn't bother me, SD card is not for app just for music, pict, vids etc, but the internal has 2 GB for user so it's enough for me

so if you are looking for design, browsing, chat&social media thing and not a gamer.. it's really worth for it's prize.. just my opinion
PS: has gorilla glass on it

Bad sound quality during conversation (some resonance occur), stupid phone book search without alphanumeric keyboard and T9. Mostly useless external SD card because you can't install apps on it, only multimedia, etc.etc.etc .....
BTW tethering is not working since ICS update and there is no fedback from Sony will it work in a near future, so be warned !!
Only what is good on that phone is battery and screen, everything else is useless.
My suggestion, don't go even near that phone, keep a safe distance at least 1km.

I hv dought it try it and now I have sold it in just 15 days.because of its poor performence.
hmmm if u just want to see this phone then its good, but if u want to work on this phone as browsing, gaming, photograpgy. videography etc so this phone will be a nightmare for u.
so my advise is not to buy xperia j.

1. Sony Xperia J this mobile is not impres.
2.720p videos not work in this mobile. Camera photographs is not good,templerun game very slow working, no Bravia engine. The display is good and so are its other features like the music player.
3. The Xperia J features a 4-inch LCD of FWVGA resolution (854 x 480 pixels), and pixel density of 245ppi. It's not a Reality display though, which means that it comes without the Mobile BRAVIA Engine. That may be a software tweak but it has its impact on photo browsing and video watching.Auto brightness is not available.
4. The CPU performance is quite poor. That also results in a rather choppy UI navigation, which is probably the worst thing about the Xperia J. The Xperia J CPU does better than lower-clocked Cortex-A5 designs, if that's any consolation.
5. Well...its gud unable to play hd videos...othrwise smwat resembles galaxy s duos
6.this phone does'nt take 720p videos and has a problem when playing 720 videos

Hi, i got this phone around 2 weeks ago. The design is superb, the style everything, the light at the bottom it's awesome to gaze at. But i have this enormous problem of lag. It's laggy when swiping through different home screens and especially on applications! to give a great example when running temple run it's a nightmare. I don't know is there a way to fix this???? i would really appreciate an way through because this mobile looks awesome and it's such a downturn.

Danielle, i recommend you look at Galaxy Ace 2, its very powerful and is a great phone, just it doesnt look that good. Ace 2 is really the best in this class, saw it in SM Marilao for less than 11,500, thats VERY cheap.

Saw one in the mall today, wow it looks so good, impressive big display for its class, its easy to forget that its underpowered when you see it, its a real beauty. Now i am sure the Xperia J will be a success for sony, its very hard to not chose this over the powerful but unimpressive looking Galaxy Ace 2.
