I have been using this phone since January, so i know how it works in and out.. hopefully this review will be of help for all those who are confused..
Performance- Since it has 512mb RAM and a 1ghz single-core processor, you cant expect too much from it. given the specifications, it is an amazing phone. Not advisable to buy if you are a heavy gamer or user for that matter. It can handle couple of apps at the same time, but a noticeable lag will definitely b seen.
Camera- During the day the camera clicks amazing pics, but at night it is not good. flash doesnt help much and pics at night do not look nice. for day pics, it is nice!
Screen and Clarity- It has a 4-inch screen with rich colors. Definitely more superior than similar phones in the same price range. It is quite big too and playing games and watching videos is quite a good experience.
Sound Quality- The speakers are not very loud and the headphones given with the handset do not sound great either. this is one major downfall of this phone. you can always use another headset and the sound quality will be perfect.
Overall Performance- Overall i would say this is a decent phone for its price. you cant get too much in 15k anyways! main downfall is the processor and sound, but apart from that it is quite a good piece. And one more thing, do not forget to upgrade to JellyBean! it makes the phone much smoother and reduces the lag upto quite an extent. I am quite happy with this phone and i hope this review has cleared quite a few doubts from the minds of those who are confused.
boss, 01 Jun 2013I've bought the device on 10 of may. so I have 3 weeks of experience with the device. 1st bac... moreAfter i read about ur problem, i'm very sure that you had bought the fake one. And in my opinion to solve your problem, you can throw that piece of junk anywhere else or just blend in a blender.Too many complaint on lower-class smartphone.

1st back camera is the same 5M pixel camera from experia mini 10 pro. It is very old and what is more interesting the camera does not make a pictures for full screen. The camera makes pictures for experia mini 10 pro. So 3 years ago it was a greate camera, but today it is not good enough. When you hold the phone to make a picture the lack of special button for it is very obvious. You need to hold the device with left (in most cases) hand and with right touch the screen or touch button on the screen. Hello!, Sony guys not all solution from Apple home are good and convenient.
There are many programs of daily that does not work: Waze. Waze - does not work on the device. It crashes every time. All other GPS applications experience long delay between showing your location on screen and your actual location.
Try to play Fruit Ninja. First every circle on screen of Sony J became eliptic. Second it takes 5 seconds to devies to react on your swipe and present it on a screen. So almost all fruits goes done.
Try to play in other Subway surfer. Same problems. There is delay between your touch and reaction of the device.
3. Size. For me the size of the screen is too big and I cannot work with one hand for all functionalities.
4. BlueTooth work well
5. pictures are nice (when there is good light conditions)
6. Google talks works fine
Design is good. It is really nice to hold the device.
In general do not buy it. Spent more money for iPhone.

myh, 30 May 2013guys there is a new software update releace on yesterday for xperia j from sony after jelly be... moreLet me try with this new updates...
I don't think it may resolve any major issues currently faced by this phone.
I purchased 2 xperia J in Nov-2012, For me & my Bro. Both are giving very poor and Sluggish performance. Lags on every touch & type. Couldn't run even a simple applications. Poor Sound Quality. Even camera is too slow. ... and on and on... there are lists of poor issues in this cell.
I had been to sony service center for 5 times, & every time they took a week & month for service, but worthless & Waste of time.
I recommend not to go for any SONY phones, coz of poor services and poor cell performance....
update to 11.2.A.0.31... top contacts included , album keyboard bugs fixed... n modified notifications
