v., 29 Feb 2016Worst front camera ever.VGA Camera tf.by the time of this phone came out,
there is no such a social media trend called "Selfie"
front camera mainly used for video call.
* this is my thought
I use this phone over for 2 years, still run great and give a good fight with other product, its own every feature except
Underwater living ability
somehow its water resist in some case, i have recordings of my phone holding out in a car while going in a light misty rain.
I love my Phone
love Xperia !!!
great ph, love it. no lag, no faced any problem using the ph. it got fall couple times but still work properly no scratch. but a week ago, the ph fall on the road when I was in car, fortunatelly it just got litle scratch, and still in good perform. love sony brand.
An awfully bad phone. Avoid it at all costs and don't believe the hype. It lags a lot, the walkman is killed automatically because of memory issues, the camera is severely mediocre and its battery life lasts less than three hours on continuous usage.
fajarmayn, 12 Mar 2016I have had this device for 2 years now, and the biggest problem is the battery. I don't even k... morehey when your battery came below 25 percent then after click on the stamina mode then your battery will work normally without switching it off..... try it i hope u will get rid of this issues.
I have had this device for 2 years now, and the biggest problem is the battery. I don't even know why, but when the battery is on 20% it dies. Then i charge may phone, and it is 0%... So 20% is the new zero of my phone. I don't know how to fix this bug. The other thing that i dissapoint is the many of crash of any apps. Maybe it's because the RAM only 1GB so when i go multitasking it crash over and over... So i think when i want to buy new phone maybe i don't want to buy this brand again
I have this phone for more than 2 years now. It has had its own problems but now its okay-ish. Using cyanogenmod (CM 12.1) on unlocked bootloader, cm11 is more stable choice perhaps. Just make sure not to overwhelm your phone with apps that require lots of ram. Camera is average but im used to it. (grainy pictures). BUT battery it came with - is still good after 2 years so I can see why it is built-in. Been using screen protector and a case around it and ive dropped it many times from low height but its all good! It hasnt visited warranty/repair shop.
OK, listen up.
The phone itself is OK. The problem is that you people don't know how to update the software (from 4.1 to 4.3)
1. You make a factory reset with an option to delete all files on the phone (make sure to transfer all your images, music etc on your PC first)
2. You plug in your phone to a PC and ONLY THAT WAY you make the update, via the PC Suite.
3. After the update you make another factory reset with an option to delete all files on the phone
Do this, and you will have a great Xperia SP.
Personally, I am happy with the phone. It has been my best Android so far.
Where do I start with this phone... I got it a couple of years ago and when I first got the XSP it was fine, it was running 4.1 everything was good... Until Sony unleashed the 4.3 update. Since then I have had to wipe the phone clean 3 times and do factory resets. The phone likes to crash A LOT! Every time I pick up the phone I get "Facebook has crashed wait report or close", "Browser has crashed wait report or close", "Snapchat has crashed wait report or close", "System UI has crashed wait report or close" Texting crashes it ...Phone calls crashes it and turns it in to a useless brick where then I have to scramble to find a pen, fork, toothpick or something to hit the reset button under the back cover. I do not recommend this phone at all! If a friend tries to give you this phone..unfriend them.
I have upgraded from Sony xperia sp to Lenova VIBE P1m, trust me, I mean it, an update worth doing.
Sony asked me to replace motherboard by paying 7k(rs) when I asked them to repair the my phone which stopped charging.
After buying this I was prepared to accept poor performance in Lenova vibe p1m, but it was not as bad as xperia so was in terms of battery back up which was exceptional when compared with'SP', and gaming performance was also far better since it had 2gb of ram(I learned that adreno 320 is not the only thing required for smooth gaming), and even multi tasking seems way out of the league of xperia Sp.
I loved xperia sp and is still thankful for the device, but as time moves on, you got to see what's best for you.
For nearly 8k I bought it.
DEEPAK, 15 Feb 2016My phone C5302 switches off automatically, even in full charge. Sony care told me to change mo... moreI had the same problem. My phone once died and I had to change the motherboard. Luckily it was still under warranty. Paying out of your pocket to change motherboard is too expensive, it costs almost as much as new Xperia SP. It has nothing to do with sealed battery though, I have had failing motherboard on a phone with user-replaceable battery.
i have this phone and i like it. simple design, disco led, powerfull performance. i can play so many HD games. no lagg no hang, that was great phone :) faster, smoother, powerfull
masai, 11 Feb 2016Have read your positive comments about Sony Xperia SP and am now encouraged to get mine. Kindl... moreDo not buy this phone, it sucks big time. Have been using it lots of software bugs and the phone hangs & switches off in between regularly. There are better phones available in this cost. Had been using sony since the time i started using mobile but this is my last sony phone
