Have been using it since June 2011 and it's still working fabulously except for slight sluggishness that has creeped in in the last few months. But, the most amazing story is that it's still working even after falling two floors down defying the usual conception that Sony phones are fragile. Have always loved Sony but would like to buy something else next time just for the sake of it

Root the phone, delete all of the bloatware and move everything you can to SD and integrate all the recent apps updates into the rom and you will get a far better performance.

Must people don't care about having the latest OS (I would love KitKat, but I am perfectly fine with ICS) but would love to be able to have more apps on board.
Root and cleaning up junk apps helps a bit

well, for me, we cannot blame any product that have small built in RAM (256MB or 512MB). it's actually base on operating system which need more RAM (same as microsoft windows). in this case is Android. updated version will need more RAM but if u use ios or bb os, 512MB RAM is enough to run smoothly on their device. that is why nowadays, most of brands produce new android device with bigger RAM.

I loved my Arc, it was slim, lightweight (nice looking), had a nice screen & camera. Only downside was the serious lack of memory - needed a lot of management - even although I don't play any games.

Upgraded to an SP. It's chunky and much less user friendly - is it Jelly Bean or the Sony UI, or maybe both? The upside is it has enough memory and double the screen resolution.

I'm selling one oddly enough. Midnight blue LT15i. A bit too complicated for my other half so buying a basic PAYG for her. Found this post by accident when looking up the spec prior to placing it on ebay.

It may lag if it is turned on for 2 or 3 weeks without restarting it or if internal memory which is kind of short is too full.
But obviously, if you keep that in mind or do a root you will be just fine.
Love mine and have had it for about 3 years and lots of heavy usage.
