Cool phone for me.. So far after my update to Jellybean it becomes more responsive. Battery life is okay, well it actually depends on how you are using your phone, if you use it more on games of course it will drain your battery much faster. Also tried suing it on fresh water and Salt water, Haha! Still functioning well.

just a piece of advice if you are going to buy a phone consider the battery life and performance..

If I am using it on the beach I do not immerse it on water..sprays are tolerable but immersion, is not safe..
If you want to immerse it on salt water you can put a water resistant skin on it,just like on the s3,since it will not corrode plastic....It's like a condom for your phone...so that it will not be infected by HIV =)..immersing it on salt water without protection is a suicide.
Watch this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04fAx4hkS5o
it's a skin that makes phone water resistant
Here is my opinion (Using this phone from January) READ FOR SOME USEFUL TIPS ABOUT UPDATING TO JB AND USING THE PHONE!
One of the best device you can get on your hand! Every function is at the best level! Great finish and nice design! Black color unit is a beaty! Camera features also at the best level with good light (Coz these aren't DSLRs)! Video quality is same as described above! Even in the dark good with flash! Used this phone in a POOL more than 20mins (not completely emerged) for camera purposes! Even I wash the phone when the display becomes oily because of use! (when water goes to the earphone above the display leave it for 10 minutes because water doesn't goes in but due to wetness when calling hear a low sound than normal, so let it dry) Other than that no water problem can use in any rain without that problem!(it's not a problem) My unit have a 1 dead pixel but ok great display with BRAVIA and I can't even see the dead pixel so before you buy check it out! Some times charge the phone 2s a day because of heavy DATA TRAFFIC activities and normaly 1 charging per day is enough for my normal usage! And even I have used this phone for 3days and 6h with data traffic (just used to check fb). I dont care about using when charging and unplugging when charging and even shut down and charge, I do anything due to my need! As a habbit I always kill apps after using apps! And thats all about it! Sony, so nothing to worry about! 1 of the best phone in the market! I wanted to buy a Galaxy S4 because of its cool features but still using this because of S4 plastic played out design!waiting for S5 with a cool design! Feel confident to use this phone anywhere because of it's look and water resistance feature.! good way to update to JELLY BEAN is bellow!
