> In reply to JellaGarnet @ 2013-02-03 14:48 from t7U1 - click to readAbsolutely... P is WAY better than those two.
1. Higher resolution screen.
2. 8MP Exmor R camera (superb photos and 1080p videos)
3. 1Gb RAM.
4. Metal body (feels very expensive)
5. Will get JellyBean update on March end. Being a dual core phone plus have 1GB Ram..... makes it just perfect for almost everything.
TIP: If you are from India, buy from eBay. Xperia P is 17K there instead of 23. Unless you want original Sony india warranty I suggest you to get it for 17K (warranty is handled by the seller). Once you learn how to use FlashTool, you won't even need that.....

Hello! I'm planning to buy this phone. Is this phone have better features than Xperia J or Xperia Neo L? What can you say about its features especially the camera's quality, battery and is the OS fast? and besides I'm not a heavy user of phone. I just want to take clear pictures and listen to music. So, can you recommend me to buy this phone? :D Thank you!

Picture size is normal. Usually bigger size than normal photo is due to higher ISO settings, i.e Night time pictures (lower compression to help reduce noise, hence the bigger size). It's nothing odd. P has a 8MP camera, what can you expect?

Those of you here who know the custom rom 'ParanoidAndroid' probably know that it has a unique feature that allows to change the DPI of applications on our phone. That too set separate settings for each app. Changing DPI (say, lowering the value) will make the letters and UI elements of an app seem smaller, hence allowing it to display more info on the same screen area. But many guys are unable to enjoy it because that Rom needs an unlocked bootloader, which is something that can't be achieved without ruining warranty.
Anyways, there is an alternative solution. All one needs is a rooted device. Rooting is easy, I have rooted my P recently. Follow this guide on xda after rooting to install the necessary framework and apk that allows us to custom change per app dpi settings.

But if you are Facebook addict it won't help much.

If you meant 6 hours of intensive usage, then go buy yourself iPhone 5 or Motorola Razr Maxx, because Xperia P or any other smartphone in its class cannot give you more then 4-5 hours of battery life on intensive usage (3d gameplay, constant WiFi web surfing, etc.).
