Bought the phone 2 years ago secondehand.
As the other comment it fell a lot, and nothing happend. But after a time the coating on the screen let lose. In the end i bricked it by turning it on with almost zero power. It crippled the boot sequence. Not even a full cold reset worked anymore.
Second phone, same type has been working now without flaws. Upgraded it from 2.3 to android 6.0 its still a fast phone. Just don't expect Mindcraft on it running smootly.
Battery relativly easy exchanged for low costs, you can do it yourself with some small tools.
Definitly a good phone.
i hate this phone very much when i upgrade it from 2.3.4 to 4.1.2.It have many problem.
1. this phone always turn off and restart when i charge this phone
2. camera cannot use since update
3. when i play the game, the phone comes too hot, battery life decrease faster and the android system automatic shut down the phone.
4 always lag on playing games.
5. Performance slow. Samsung galaxy s2 is better than this phone.
I hate this sony phone and i like the apple and samsung smartphone very much.
I have this phone for 4 years and a half and i came here to honour it.It is the best phone i ever had it never dissapointed me even if i am frequent user.Thanks Sony!
An amazing phone. I have the phone for more than four years. Zero problems. Fell hundreds of times without cover or shield and nothing has happened to it. I'm running android version 4.1.2. This device saved a lot of money. Camera button and the option to connect a strap makes the phone a real pocket camera. It has also an HDMI port that can connect to TV to see movies and pictures.
I'm onsidering rooting the device to allow room for additional applications (originally there is small partition of 2GB) . It is best not to put a screen protector since the phone comes from the factory with such protector (If you see the SONY logo it is part of this protector). Additional protector heat up the phone
In time test this phone is a big winner. Most of my friends replaced their phone more than once in the last 4 years. This phone is powerful enough for me and its GPS out perform most phones.

nicknameisme, 12 Jul 2014I want to ask what is the main reason why my sony xperia s is always turns off by itself? I do... moreIt's all because of your mobile case, being inbuilt battery with glass finishing on the outer-body it is already in an pressurized state and again by putting-up the case will produce extra temperature so it will get shutdown by a notification "PHONE SHUTDOWN DUE TO HIGH TEMPERATURE".....
