I am using this phone from last few days. I got ICS out of the box. Its pretty cool phone. People are complaining about battery life but I don't find its battery that bad. I have activated extended standby mode and have selected power saver in settings > display > brightness and I have not installed any battery saver. I am using WiFi nearly 4 hours a day and calls and messages are also a lot in a day. My phone lasts more than 24 hours easily and I get enough chance to charge it before battery drains.

been using this phone for the past week.. Excellent screen ! Trust me on this, you wont get a better screen in another phones. The Sony white magic technology really makes it happen ! I have kept my brightness to zero and still it's so much better than any other phones display. Plays high graphic games too. 1 gb ram and a dual core processor does the job efficiently.. running more than 1 application without any lags. Sound quality is good on the earphones. But not that great on the speaker but manageable. About the battery life, yes the battery is not that great. Not enough for a phone which has a 4 inch display. I have to charge it twice a day but it's only because I am constantly chatting and playing games on the phones.. If only the battery life was great, it would have been awesome ! but I have installed Juice defender ultimate and it does improve your battery life. Also note that the first few days the battery will get over instantly. I dont know why this happens but after a week of using it I have seen an improvement in the battery life. I am running ICS on this phone and not problems till now. Very good phone.

Hi guys, this phone is cool. all of this phone are excellent. about the memory, 12 GB is enough for you. But there is something problem on this phone wich you must know. life battery is quite poor. you can realize, the screen is 4.0inch then the battery capacity just 1320Mah. you should prepare to buy power bank for this phone. thanks

I have a problem moving files thru Bluetooth - its either not detecting devices or even if detected it does not transfer files.

Also Its only 12 gb whereas it is expected to be 16 GB

I just bought this phone a few days ago, and my only concern is the battery life, it barely lasts a day... Really disappointed with that, because what's the use of a phone if it doesn't have charge. Im only running on 2g andi dont even use the WiFi and music all time. Can you guys give me some tips to extend my battery life, I'm already using juice defender.

But here are also the things that I liked about this phone.
1. The screen is really really bright, right now I'm using 0% and its still brighter than my friends S2
2. Never lags, the phone is really fast and smooth. (I'm running ice cream sandwich already by three way)
3. The 4"display is perfect fit
4. Very elegant design
