I am thinking of buying this phone but I am wondering about battery problems. I am not a heavy user and hardly surf the net or play games for an hour a day. My current usage on my Nokia 603 lasts for 2-3 days. So will I experience much issues ? Is the non replaceable battery a major headache for 1-2 years Thanks for answering my questions. Also on the internet, the phone is available with gingerbread os but in stores in ics, it is costlier in stores so where should I buy it from, I've been hearing ics update messes up with wifi ? Thanks for answering my question. Cheers!
bone, 18 Nov 2012How to improve the battery perfomance of this phone??? Pls help me out The battery is 1305mAh. So by theory , the screen in Xperia P ib most likely to consume the battery. This is true , as i HAD one Xperia P. The battery depletes every minute. It was quite painful to see that. While outdoors, or even in the office also, it is a headache to maintain the battery life. Again, the battery cover is non-removable, making the case worse that you can't even keep a spare battery. But if you are happy with the external batteries available in today's market, then its your choice to buy Xperia P.
www , 17 Nov 2012i was intended to buy Xperia P . But the poor battery backup issue ( user comments ) halted me... moreThe mobile hardly lasts 3 hrs on continuous browsing. It is the best midrange android device while it comes to the features. But again the BATTERY life is so so poor that I sold my Xperia P within 10 days from buying. It was disgusting and shame to the company that has fit the poor BATTERY into it.
anik32, 18 Nov 2012last day i but sony xperia p , but i not happy with it because poor battery , so give me sugge... moreDude ! I had bought a Xperia P and sold it within 10 days due to its sucking battery life. SL is a better option as the battery is a little poserful than P, but again its battery is non-removable as I checked the disassembly procedure. So if you are happy with this option, go for SL or else go for a Galaxy S series which has much better battery life.

Bane, 17 Nov 2012Hi, I own Xperia P (with ICS), and I think this phone will not fulfill your demands. In my cas... moreHi, i am planning to buy Sony Xperia P, my usage is Voice Calls and Messaging only mostly, with 2 hrs of music and minimal browsing for 10-15 mins, no gaming.
Can i face less battery back up in this case ?
last day i but sony xperia p , but i not happy with it because poor battery , so give me suggestion which one better sony xperia P or sony xperia SL may be i'll change it .
www , 18 Nov 2012thanx a lot .sony / sony ericsson phone are better than samsung in midrange section.but batter... moreWell, if browsing is your main requirement, you should go for device with 5:3 aspect ratio (or bigger 16:9 screen). Xperia P is a great multimedia phone with exceptional design (things I was looking for..:) Also AMOLED screens consume less energy, so if I were you, I would go for samsung galaxy s2 or s3 mini (wait for the price drop). If you want to go for cheaper option, HTC One V has good rep in my country, great sound and battery backup (CPU is not crucial for web browsing). Huawei P1 is a cool phone too.. If you're still thinking about Xperia P, battery life really improves with ICS (5h screen time today:), and it charges really really fast.
Hah, maybe the best option is to keep the Nokia and get the Nexus 7 tablet. It's within your budget;) Anyway, I hope I helped you.. Good luck!
julee, 18 Nov 2012till now im facing problem with my wifi connection after i upgrade it ics , im so dissapointed... moreHi you dont have to worry and even i was worried about wifi problem before updating to ICS. I have no problem with wifi after updating and i did it this way and you may also try the same procedure. Use SUS to update to ICS and select Factory Reset and Update option in SUS. Everything will work fine. Give it a try.
dreamchild, 18 Nov 2012Got this baby last week. I got ICS out of the box. I unlocked and rooted the device with ease.... moreplease paste the link you referred for rooting..i have unlocked the bootloader..dont know what to do next..
thanks in advance...
Akshat S, 17 Nov 2012I am planning to buy Xperia P, my basic usage is only Calls, SMS, Whatspp and listening music... moreAs far as my experience with calls and heavy messaging, a few minutes of wifi browsing/play store exploring, and an hour of games playing. My battery lasts for 2 days. I disabled auto-sync, facebook integration and remove weather and social media feeds widgets.
till now im facing problem with my wifi connection after i upgrade it ics , im so dissapointed. i want to downgrade my xperia p to gb.. or wait until the this will be upgrade to jb.
this phone is supported the usb otg so is this phone capable in using a broadband stick? can i use a broadband stick in the usb otg?
This is great phone, butterly smooth with ICS update. Battery performance is good, remove stock widgets like weather widgets etc. they sucks battry, also disable facebook integration and auto sync etc.
I love this phone, this is best product in mid-range smart phones.
