Using XperiaS since 2013
I'll post a simple Review:
Great HD Screen/ Beautiful 12mp Back Camera !! But very slow at focussing / Bad front camera (if you're addicted to selfies dont buy this phone) / Good Internal memory but not enough. Had to delete some apps and files from time to time / Calling and texting is all fine / The Speaker's are excellent. I like the way my phone rings / Good at gaming but it heats so fast (just like other android phones,normal) / The BATTERY... A normal battery, just like other batteries, it lasts 6 to 8 hrs, sometimes 4-3 hrs (if i'm playing a game). Charger problems, bought a new one. But the battery is good (I recommend buying a Portable Power Bank) / The plastic external phone cover can be sometimes easily scratched (cover needed). And oh yes, i hate the fact that i can't find covers for my lovely phone :(
Finally, i really love my phone. I listen to music all day long, capture and edit some pictures, watch some youtube video's,i play one game (i dont like games). Instagram,Whatsapp,Snapchat,Viber,Facebook,Messe­nger,Picsart and a few small apps are all on my phone.But i've got to say, If you're a very excessive phone user, mmmm not very recommended, you will suffer with this phone.
I think this phone can really last for years, at least with me.
THANKS (& Sorry for my english)

Have been using this device since 2 and half year....the overall device experience is good
But as the device is outdated it lags when running new games because of its old chip set and 1gb RAM
camera quality during night is shit. But the same camera during daylight performs like hell. I have click awesome pics through this phone cam.
The loudspeaker is not that loud enough. In-call voice is low.
Apart from this the phone is awesome for a moderate user. I have rooted the device and flashing different custom ROMs, and device runs very good and smooth. Whichever lags I came across were ROM related. So changing ROM helped. Best ROM I found on XDA for this phone is ParanoidAndroid BETA4 (Don't use BETA6 as it has bugs). You can try it yourself

Not a bad phone at all. Good HW, terrible SW support from Qualcomm and Sony, but thanks to XDA I am now enjoying Lollipop. :)
