Hi Guys i am on the the xperia P users, I have been using this phone since last two years. Prominently the worst experience ever in my life check the list of the problems that i have faced using this phone:
1) The battery needs to be charged at least twice a day
2) When you answer the phone it takes about 10 secs for to connect whilst the other person on the line is enjoying your ringtone ridiculous
3) I have encountered a new problem now-a-days my phone wont switch on even if it is being charged for more than a day and.
4) it is so slow that you will be forced to uninstall the apps that you like the most
there are alot of problems in this phone
I feel so sad for myself and for all the xperia P users

Sony should launch high end version of this phone (Xperia P2).

Combine WhiteMagic Screen Technology and design of this phone with Power of Z2.

I have it for almost a year and it's been my worst experience.
I have loaded the most common apps (skype, viber, etc) but it is extremely slow. I cannot even receive calls. It rings, I slide my finger to answer but it still rings for 10-20 seconds. The other party listens my phone vibrating but I hear nothing. After 10-20 seconds I can speak. It is ridiculous.

On the other hand, the battery is a real joke. It doesn't last even for a single day.

Another amazing thing, its gps. It needs almost a minute to lock and its average error is around 20-30 meters. In other words it doesn't have a clue which quarter I am on.

Bottom line, if you need a feature phone buy a real feature phone (it will be fast, easy to use and its battery will last for enough days).
If you need a smartphone buy a real smartphone which can run your apps properly and its battery can last at least one day. It can server you as a phone too.

A piece of advice to everyone using this phone. Throw away the sony stock rom and install a custom rom. You will feel the difference once you use a custom rom. I'm currently using CM11 rom and its AWESOME. It is a lot smoother than the original stock rom.

> In reply to Johnny @ 2014-09-05 10:41 from JE{s - click to readI tried to do that, in the Network, there is no 3G in the preferred network mode. Only WCMDA Only , GSM Only, WCMDA (Preferred)/GSM.

and the third one already choose, i choose the other two, still same issue.

I called Sony this morning they advised me the delete the APN settings, then add it again through the network provider, if it didn't work call them again, will call them again tomorrow because i did that all, still same issue !

Hi Guys,

I do face a very weird problem these days with my Xperia P.
I had this phone long time ago, but in USA i had it with Metro PCS provider 4 months ago,it's already unlocked phone, it was working perfectly,all the functions,internet and phone,everything.
recently it starting to have internet problems.
Works fine when it's WI-FI, internet browsing,facebook,messengers and e-mails, everything perfect.
When i use the normal Metro PCS network ,the internet goes like BLOCK, it shows the E network appears normally in the right top corner beside the signal, but for some reason when i try to search in the website, no network,when i try to play online radio,no network,when i try to load facebook, network error, and so,but at the same time, i receive facebook notifications normally, and receive e-mails normally,even ppl can call me and text me through messenger as i appear online to them. but i can't send anything or use the internet to do anything, it's sounds weird, and it's really crazy.
I reset the phone to factory settings ,deleted everything from it, and it didn't work,then one day it works perfect,for only one day, & then came back not working.
I have 2 friends, one of them has Xperia E and the other one has Samsung Galaxy S4, happened the exact issue with them, and both of them two different phone providers, they even in different countries.
I really don't know what the hell is going on,the Metro PCS support said it's a phone issue.
do you guys think it's an UPDATING issue or something?
Please advice.

Thank you

It has unibody designed case which is opened by unscrewing two screws on the bottom of left and right sides.

There is no higher capacity battery available for Xperia P.
