I have this phone. For gaming, it consumes my battery quickly. Lags a lot, it made the internal memory useless no matter how big it is (32g) because most of the downloads go straight to the 1.5g phone memory yet some are non transferable to internal memory.

The problem with most sony phones is the frequent lagging. I have friends who used sony phones in the past and had this same regrettable experience with them. Apparently they transferred to samsung and iphone. I'll prolly do the same thing soon.

This phone has amazing specs on paper and affordability in contrast to its head to head competitors but when you use it you encounter too many problems that would really have you regretting ever choosing a sony phone. Buy at your own risk.

Got something to say about this phone. After 2 years of using it, it still works fine for me. All I do to make SL work is to configure it like flash roms or use mods. I'm currently using Honami Style v4 and Im running on doomlord kernel. I use xposed installer for the mods. And I also overclocked the CPU to make it faster. Im playing Gangstar Vegas and got no probs sure it lags sometimes but what to expect its a old phone.

the phone hangs often since the time I have brought it. Same with a friend having SL. Other features are very good. Camera is too good.

This is the best phone I used, it is very fast and the 32 GBs gives you the ability to download whatever comes to your mind moreover, the 12 mp camera works really fantastic,it's touch screen is one of the best I saw. I advice you guys to use it.

When I run ANTUTU Benchmark or CPU-Z app on my
Xperia SL, Total RAM shows only ~670-680 MB.

I seriously doubt that the phone comes with just 756MB RAM whereas the specifications mention 1GB.
Sony is giving either wrong or incomplete information to mislead the buyers...!!!

That might be the way SONY selected to boost up sales of Xperia Mobiles, rather than considering better handsets with good hardware n features...!
