I've been using a 64GB microSD card on stock Android 4.3 on my Xperia SP C5303, file system is still exFAT no formatting and changing to FAT32 done for 2 months now & it works brilliantly. This is despite the 32GB cap stated on the specifications. I'm kicking myself for not doing it earlier, quite frankly. So go ahead and pop in that 64GB microSD card.

On the build quality of my Xperia SP C5303, I won't complain, neither will I praise Sony Corp. I'm an advent user of the bedevilled pudding case cushions against knocks, light falls & protects the co-moulded aluminium strip from eventual chipping. It does increase the phone's size though but you get used to it. A quick Google search & the chipped & flaking Xperia SP co-moulded aluminium strip doesn't look pretty, use a protective case. The first generation Gorilla glass holds its mantle pretty well, no cracks or chips on the screen after 1yr 7months with the Xperia SP C5303.

Connect your phone to pc and open Sony pc companion.
Upper left corner there will be a option available besides of sp photo.
That your phone is up to date, but you have to click on it. Then there will be statement that if you are facing any problems or issues then please reinstall your firmware, click on it and next will be option of backup etc . Then 800+mb firmware will be download and install to your phone, time depends upon your intent connection speed. Keep in mind all brothers who are facing any issue use this technique its official.

One year 7 months later and the only complaint I have of my Sony Xperia SP C5303 is the fact that it's not upgradeable beyond Android 4.3. I honestly haven't experienced hanging or freezing partly due to the fact that I clear unnecessary clutter from the 1GB RAM & make use of the hard reset button once a month, otherwise relatively heavy games Dead Trigger 2, NFS, FIFA handle perfectly well, the Adreno 320 chip handles itself like a charm. The 8MP camera is just above average compared to the extensive options out there but it takes excellent photos in well lit environs & good photos in dimly lit ones. I have a digital camera so I'm satisfied with the Xperia SP phone camera. Battery is 2370mAh and it's battery life is still a reasonable 16hrs daily with moderate use, ie 4G, emails, Twitter, WhatsApp and reading the e-paper. Heavy usage gets me an average of 9-10 hrs, switch off 4G & 3G gets me to 12hrs while wifi gives me 13-14 hrs. This is despite the phone being slightly over 18 months old & everything is still stock Android 4.3. Handles my apps smoothly, I can't complain. Speaker is loud enough to enjoy music or a handsfree call with ease, it's no BoomSound, neither is it front facing but it gets the job done. I think my Xperia SP C5303 has another year and a half in it, I'll be sure to post my review in January 2017 regarding the same.
Would I suggest it to anyone in the market for a phone, quite frankly no. The Ram is limited at 1GB, which as we know is never exactly 1GB, there are better options out there and the fact that I have to get stuck with Android 4.3 is greatly annoying. The Adreno 320 chip though powerful, is now outdated by a couple of new generation chips. The screen has huge bezels & is 720p, though the 720p screen uses less battery power compared to higher resolution ones hence the great battery life plus you can't really tell the difference between a 720p & 1080p screen, maybe on the quadHD screens. if none of this things bother you, then go ahead and get onboard with the Xperia SP.

This is one regrettable purchase.
MItP was excellent for just about 1yr. After this it started to play up such as freeze or wouldn't charge.
Things went worse very quickly and phone would start and restart, then the only way to use it was to keep in on charge, then it won't start at all.
From my extensive research, it's a common problem with Sony. The Stamina batteries are poorly made. Sony has a reputation for making things that fall apart just outside of warranty.
I'm totally disappointed especially as my older Lenovo mobile which the Xperia SP was meant to replace, is still going strong
