I never thought that i will be using this unit again as my primary phone for calls, texts, and casual internet browsing. Good thing that there are devs @xda who are still working for custom roms to keep this unit up to date. I'm now enjoying my updated xperia sp with the latest cm13 nightly, and so far, everything is working fine. Hoping for that dev to finish his current project cm14 for this phone. 😉

I just got one of these and took a quick photo inside the lounge and have to day it is very impressive quality. I am surprised therefore by others saying this phone has a rubbish camera. Having had an M4 Aqua in the past I do know that it has a tendency to shut down also a problem with video recording where all of a sudden it records only blackness, however a restart always resolves this.
why does the phone sticks on the screen for example when typing or selecting, and why does the camera pictures so bad. The megapixel of the camera and pictures produced aren't even
Please people we are in end of 2016 and this phone released in 1q 2013, so we must thank this phone, if you want sp stable root the phone and install greenfiy and freeze all app im using sp about 3 years ago so i think the phone are very good for his date release, if you want more ram and stability install ram expender but you must have agood sd card..... Thank you for reading

Best Smart phone I've ever had! - If you are heavy handed and have a habit of dropping your phone or things in general... This phone will be for you!
Great phone, only problem is the camera. The quality of pics is very poor, like a 2mp camera

I am really not a picky person when it comes to phones - I really just want to be able to call and text - but this one is crap. Mine might be a dud, but I cannot recommend this phone to anyone, EVEN IF YOU GOT IT FOR FREE.
It's slow and will simply shut itself off when it can't handle basic tasks (even the text messaging app will crash). Using wi-fi requires a warm up period of about 5 minutes before it will work at a reasonable speed. I now use it as an mp3 player, which is mostly okay, but it takes 5 minutes to start working and sometimes will disconnect from my bluetooth headphones for no reason.
Call quality is pretty good, occasionally disconnects. Like I said, text messaging will sometimes shut down randomly. The camera is a complete joke. The screen and the phone's design are beautiful, which makes it a real shame that the interior is so ugly. I think Sony tried to make a fancy phone at a low price and ended up pushing out a lemon. They've definitely convinced me to never buy a Sony phone again, even though I consider Sony a good brand in general.
Do NOT get this phone, let it slowly fade into history.
DMDazz, 06 Aug 2016How do you download pokemon go on this phone?... I've tried and it fails so many timesI play Pokemon Go without any trouble BUT i have Cyanogenmod installed which requires unlocked bootloader (you lose warranty), so no pain no gain...
DMDazz, 06 Aug 2016How do you download pokemon go on this phone?... I've tried and it fails so many timesPokemon Go is compatible only to Android 4.4 and up and to devices with 2gb ram. Sad to say, you can only legally update to 4.3 and the phone only has 1gb ram.

Recently,I did a system update (13 June 2016) and the phone suddenly froze for 6 hours then my SIM cards could not be recognised.every time I switch it on, it shows "bug crash report failed,no new crash data in dropbox" Anyone knows what I can do
