Hi. I'm from Indonesia. I've using SP for 2 months. I've updated it to 4.3 (the latest one). Overall, I think it's a great phone. I've rarely found any lags at all. From the design to the battery is undeniable. On AnTuTu benchmark, I've score about 2200, up above Xperia Z and Note 2. Some minus points were I think is on the memory. It has 8 GB Internal Storage, but only available in about 5 GB. Yes it can be up to 32 GB by microSD. But it's just for the media, like music, photos or videos only. All apps are cannot be moved to SD card. Especially some ultra heavy like N.O.V
A 3 or GTA. It's very disappointing remember that only 5 GB of storage left. But, besides the memory issues, it's an amazing phone. And if you're not a heavy gaming typical, it's still would be perfect for you. It's the best mid-range Android smartphone I can find. From 1-10, I'll give it 9.
Thank you, I hope this will help you :)
Anonymous, 10 Apr 2014I like this phone but really afraid of its non-removeable battery..... i've been using it for a year now. trust me, its the best phone in this price bracket.
After thinking and keeping in mind the point of Chai Ki Tray i updated my phone to 4.3 Jelly Bean.....! After update do a factory reset because previous apps definitely conflict with current OS. I did a reset after update and following is the result after update.
This relates to new firmware i.e 12.1.A.1.201
1) Lag free user interface with enhanced ppi.
2) New themes, wallpapers and widgets.
3) Illuminating bar works fine and now it blinks on unread sms and miscall. It blink only when i connect the charger on 4.1.2 but this works great now.
4) Camera quality is enhanced greatly specially front facing camera.
5) Mobile bravia engine works fine and picture quality is better than 4.1.2 atleast according to my point of view.
6) You can now change and set lock screen wallpapers which was not possible on 4.1.2 in my set.
7) Lock screen now support widgets.
8) Wifi reception has improved a lot not facing any disconnection now even at 3rd floor of my house.
9) Battery timing remains same after one day continous use still have 20% left
1) Too much useless apps which takes internal storage and you can't uninstall them. If you try it says cannot uninstall builtin apps.
2) Front camers quality is reduced a little in low light.
In what battery percent level do I have to charge my Sony Xperia SP and for how long do I have to charge it? Thanks.

Really awesome phone with awesome price..zr is good, but in my country the difference between the price is to much..its about 200 USD..so i definitely go for sp..also zr has 4G, and that is useless because in my country there s no 4G connection..
Aerodisaster, 10 Apr 2014zr or sp?
please explaini'll say go for xperia ZR, ZR has quad core processor of a higher tier. evnthough sp has a higher clock speed you won't hardly notice the difference between 1.5Ghz to 1.7Ghz. also ZR has 2GB or ram combine that with quadcore processor you will not notice lag when multi tasking,
so to sum it up ZR is better because it has better processor, better ram and better camera. it is also water proof. if only i had extra cash during the time that i bought my xperia sp, I would have gone for Xperia ZR because the price difference is not that much.
Any1 told me that if the battery is damaged when us reinstall new battery in it or not . Pls reply me as soon as possible. Or email us at. email@example.com
Thanks a lot.
