I found this phone yesterday (it was my first android phone) ,i rooted it, uninstalled bloatware, installed custom rom (it works good with original rom but with cyanogenmod...) and now i use it as my secondary phone. Only thing that i have to complain is bad screen resolution and low storage space.
This is my first android smartphone in 2014. This smartphone is in middle-end spec during 2013/2014. The performance quite good during that year. I am still using until now, even though I have new smartphone. The only problem with this experia miro is, it is lagging too much..haha..

Can anyone tell me how to enter USB host mode..?

I'm using my xperia miro since April 2013 .
It is still pretty good .
It is not much of a high performance device yet great for day to day work .
Battery life is still so good after 2 years .
Camera works well in day time but not at night .
Audio out put is mediocre ,
Good phone for someone to start with .
Sony has done a good job with this phone :)

My first smartphone , a good smartphone.
It's nice if you want a smartphone to start.
It takes nice pictures with 5MP.

I am using this phone for about two years. These have been great two years with this phone.
The quality of pictures in daylight is great. I like the music player. The battery is strong - if I am not playing games, just some talks or sms, the battery holds about 5 days. With intensive gaming it holds 2 days. The phone memory is quiet small. As I need to have about 50 songs in my phone so I am using memory card.
About minuses - sometimes the phone restarts by itself. And I had some problems by installing apps, when the phone says that the mamory is full, but the memory has quiet enough free space.
The phone is great, but it gets too old and slow. Maybe in nowadays it is great for my mum, dad or for some 7-year-old pupil. Because the phone won't be able to do all the things the teenagers and young people need.
I have Sony xperia miro.when running time it automatically shutdown.and it was too hanged and irritating me. can u suggest what can I do for this problem...

I've had this phone since roughly its release and can say that it has served me generally well, however, as the phone is now over 3 years old, its' age is showing dramatically. With current smartphones now becoming forever more competitive, it's easy to see where and how the Xperia Miro is slowly falling behind.
Here is my experience of it so far in accordance to its' specifications:
- Body and Display
The body of the Xperia Miro is somewhat comfortable and finger friendly in the sense that, if you have small fingers, then the 3.5 inch screen caters comfortably for screen reaching. The overall size of the phone doesn't feel chunky and fits in your pocket well. As for the build, I have lost count on how many times I have dropped this phone and the worst that has happened is receiving a few tiny chips in the case - screen never broken or serious repair damage with the screen having minor scratches.
When first buying this phone, I thought that the response speed and reliability of supporting apps was great. However, a few years on, the phone has a tendency to either freeze, crash, or both when searching the internet or having an app open. At some points, I open the internet search, type two letters and the phone crashes - hardly ideal. I'm no phone guru by any means but I believe that this is simply due to the phone itself being somewhat old.
General app using is not so bad on it, if the app itself is not requiring massive amounts of memory, such as; WhatsApp. That tends to be ok for general use but anything else like having skype, I wouldn't bother.
This is one of my pet peeves about this phone. The phone only has 4GB (of which, the user is only able to access 2.2GB). This proves to be incredibly painful as this doesn't allow for many apps to be downloaded (I literally have 5, maybe up to 7 at a push if I still want my phone to work and not consistently crash).
Another pet peeve is the camera on this phone. It holds a 5 megapixel camera with a pointless 0.3 megapixel camera on the front. I virtually can not take a picture with the front camera. So if you're looking for a selfie phone - this isn't the phone to get.
The sound has been generally good on this. Loud and clear from music to ringtones
Battery on this was great at first, but like anything, with age comes deterioration. The battery life is still good, however, after a full days use, the battery is near enough gone where when it was first purchased, the battery life would only be half.
Would I recommend this phone? Yes, but to someone who is not too bothered about having an outstanding phone and would be happy with the basics of phone, text and light app usage. Ideal for a younger person who may be heavy handed and to introduce into the smartphone world.
