I love this phone I got it just US$130
this is the best phone ive had i would always have xperia phone they are better than samsungs the battery lasts longer
Xperia sp is still amazing
Highly reliable, thanks for its specs
Certainly a mobile worth buying
If you experience any problem like lagging, or any other please mention in comments section above,
For solving issues pls follow these steps
Select only either gsm or wcdma,but not wdcma preffered (this i found in comments by some other users thanks)
Unistall or disable apps and services of little or no use to you(highly recommended - a must do thing for all android and even all smartphone users)
Switch off your device for some time once in every three days or every night if possible.
Enabling stamina mode is useful but wont affect performance in any way-this is to say it is still butter smooth.
To get the best performance use it when it is cool, disabling apps unused apps could be handy.
However better you take care of the mobile, so better will be how the performance.
If you take care of this mobile with extreme level of care, it still wont give you ultra high definition selfie images, not even a decent selfie for social media purpose,...yes you cannot override the limitations, so dont expect for the user experience even apple users or top end mobile still dream of.
Being an satisfied xperia user for more than 3years, i would not recommend this mobile to anyone, because there are better equipped mobiles at even cheaper price.But for me, i bought this mobile during a time when xperia sp was one of the only few mid-ranged devices that outperformed even flagship devices(performs better than iPhone 4s,nokia lumia 920, etc) -oh xperia sp even outranked xperia zr,zl in few few areas(please refer youtube)............................i still get the best out of it with no lag and WOULD NOT consider UPGRADING in the near future.
That is because i learned one thing by being an XPERIAN."I HAVE WHAT I WANTED, ITS ENOUGH than wating for every upgrade that becomes a reality in every two months".
And yes i use QUORA app.
Thanks in advance, resources are limited in this world, it takes persistence to keep minimal use of everything in this MATERIALISTIC WORLD.
Love you all.
You all suck,I had my Xperia SP c5303 for about 1 year and it was fantastic especially playing all kind of games like Wild Blood,GTA SA,Clash of Clans etc.
currently owning this phone, it has serve me well this since 2013. but due to its old dual core processor and small internal memory, i will upgrade this phone within this month.
So, for those who might considerto buy this phone, choose other phone please. it may have a fancy light, but thats only it. for the same price you can find other quad core, recent version of android, higher internal memory, better secondary camera or even waterproof.
may this help you guys in the future.
dont buy this smartphones, cheaper smartphones phones are better than any branded smartphones.
i am using sony xperia sp last 2.5 years, i am very happy by using this smartphones, but recently i purchased infocus m350, and now think that xperia sp is worst smartphone compare to cheaper phones, please dont go through the branded name,
Anonymous, 07 Aug 2015sony xperia sp will support 4g sim??Yes it supports LTE network

saravanan111086@gmai, 26 Jul 2015my phone is not working in WCDMA/GSM MODE. so that I Can't access 3g network in my phone. but ... moreFriend the xperia sp's internal radio reception is much weaker. If GSM is OK then the radio is fine. I have an Xperia SP and Moto E2 LTE. On Moto I get good 4G & WiFi reception, but on Xperia it really weak one bar max sometimes no LTE at all. Even WiFi reception is poor. Keeps disconnecting a lot.
I like the Sony brands. My phone is C5303. The camera is good.but Battery life is very low. If used Internet it has very heat. That's not suitable for heat countries. And microphone is very low sound. The phone is not work from low coverage areas.
Xperia sp is getting too hot too fast and the battery is not lasting more than 2hrs is i use Internet.
sony brand i verry like. my phone sony xperia sp c5302. phone is good,but, my talking problem is inner voice speaker is 5 seconds late hearing, so what do the suggetion please tell me.
my phone xperia sp c5302. i like sony. so myphone is inner mic is slowly voice 5 seconnds late hearing.so what about you please tell me suggetion. (my problem is answer voice speaker is 5 seconds late hearing.)
Camera quality is not up to the mark for an 8 MP camera. Samsung Galaxy S4 mini has far better picture quality in same range. Touch sensor is not stable. I had to use it in glove mode for better sensitivity sometimes.
Audio and display quality is very good. Good part is that it comes with NFC which wasn't available in other phones in same range till last year(Not sure about now) and most importantly(for me) keypad is very user friendly and easy to use.
