Whatsapp need to be connected to the Internet first before using it, it doesn't work well when it is in the process of connecting. So wait for the Internet to be connected first for awhile, it may have some new incoming messages that whatsapp is trying to receive. Or maybe you are on stamina mode, the Internet disconnects when the screen is off and when you on back it connects again. When the Internet connection is connecting, u click whatsapp, whatsapp will say not responding. Try not to use stamina mode, set it to on when battery reaches 20% or less.

Well, it's almost 2 years since i bought my C5302, very satisfied with it's performance. Not the best 8mp camera i know..but music is good in term of speaker and earphone , beat LED = amazing..performance ?? Well it's dual core beast, mine clocked almost 27k in antutu benchmark...rarely it gets lag on heavy game. If you compare with Xiaomi redmi 2 , lenovo a6000 or galaxy e7, grand 2..clearly XSP above those 4 in term of performance. But maybe i have to make an upgrade since only vga front camera, TFT display and android stuck on 4.3..so bye SP..thank you

I've had this phone for near enough 18 months now and whilst it may not be the best in-class, it certainly makes it a great mid-range phone.
The standout feature is the camera. The 8MB "box" view and 5MB "panoramic" view are brilliant and crisp.
It also holds a lot of music where the Walkman app is more than enough.
What doesn't do it justice is the lag when you start to fill the device up. So continually you have to keep transferring between the internal storage and the SD card. This is a bit tedious.
In terms of functionality, its great.
All the apps that are compatible with your device are listed easily on the Google Play Store.
I would avoid their "Socialife" app as it's naff.
I am a big fan of this brand as it has always made me enjoy my mobile.
If you are looking for the most up-to-date and best phone on the market, this isn't it.
If you are looking for an inexpensive way with good camera and picture features, then this is worth a shout.
Make sure you use a case, its physically stronger than an iPhone but its still a touchscreen at the end of the day.

My SP (up-to-date with latest firmware and software available) started playing music through the speaker during a lecture today. What a piece of garbage.. Phony must be proud of it.

> In reply to Anant @ 2015-04-05 10:53 from rJQq - click to readI will not recommend this phone as it is old now. It runs on android 4.3. It is better to get a phone with Kit Kat or Lollipop. It has a VGA front facing camera which can't use it for selfie, is blurry. The phone will get hot if u play games and surf the internet. The screen and camera is not as good as many new phones nowadays.

If you are on a budget, you can take alook at some other brands like Xiaomi, One Plus One, Meizu, Vivo, Oppo, Lenovo and much other phones which has better camera and display.

*BUY this phone only if you want it as a COLLECTION or LIMITED EDITION phone to keep it. It is a good phone, I'm using it, but for 2015, it may not meet your expectation.

1 )You can try turning off your phone once a week for 10 minutes. So that it will clear up memory and fixed errors. Is like restarting your Computer and turning it off to rest.

2) You can use Sony's default theme, it may help.

3) Go to settings, click About Phone, scroll down to build number, tap it many times until it says "you are now a developer" After that, that is a new option above About Phone which is call "Developer option" press it and turn it on, scroll down to "transition animation" and change the 1.0x to 0.5x. There are 3 option, but change only "Transition" It will make your phone smoother.

Try out this steps :)

If you are planning to get this phone in 2015. I will not recommend it as you won't be satisfied for the specs in 2015. The front facing camera is only VGA(0.3mp) so you won't be able to get a decent selfie. They are plenty of newer devices which are better with better screen and camera. This device only runs on 4.3 Jelly Bean. Is better to get a phone with Kit Kat or Lollipop.

If you have bought this device or have been using it for 1-2 years. It is a solid and good phone. If you are facing any problems. Feel free to ask, I will help.
