This Phone Never Breaks Lul. ive dropped it like more than 90 times now..,had it since relaese, and still solid, but it needs android 4.4
The only gripe I have with this phone is that it doesn't have Android 4.4 or above. That's it. Apart from that, solid phone. Plus it looks better than most Samsungs imo xD
P.S: Seeing some people compare this to flagship phones is just stupid. This was designed as a midrange phone. It isn't designed to compete with an S4 or S3 or any Galaxy S number. It was competing with things like the Acer 3, and the Lumias, and the HTC Desires. Essentially, it's the Xperia Z's smaller sibling. Not an equal.
I believe my opinion will be the most honest one in this comment section.
I've owned this since it's release and it has went through alot in its journey with me. I've dropped this phone like 20+ times from a height of 1m, came out with scratches on the edges of the phone but amazingly no damage to the screen so far. The mobile experienced a permanent freeze/ only once after a year of owning it possibly due to my habit of exposing it to water vapors in showers lol, but nevertheless it kept on going after I got it fixed and it is still running as of now.
This is a pretty awesome phone for a midrange tier, it's like the Huracan of Lamborghini because it was one of the first mid range phone to have 4G built in.
I used this phone as my main phone since it's release and everything still functions properly. Although the keyboard GUI is starting to lag a bit.
Possibly one of the best midrange phone, I'm planning to retire it by the end of 2015 and hopefully treat myself with the new Z5
Haters gonna hate so don't believe them, most of I have seen that people complaining about Sony phones are Samsung users seems that they are only ones in the world getting dissatisfaction and then moving to Samsung to get satisfied. Personally I have used xperia sp for more than 2 years and it rocked like anything, it played all games without lags fluently so people complaining about performance get a life for yourself, battery life is average like all smartphones, camera is very good in daylight and not that good at night but still can click nice photos, I and still a current Sony user and have used phones of all companies and after that I have concluded that Sony and HTC mid range phones are a whole a he'll lot better than that chap Samsung mid range and even some high range phones, also comparing camera of sp with S6 or other high range phones will make you look stupid cause you are comparing a 15k phone with a 55k one. So shut up haters and stop lieing
This phone is so good, strong and reliable, very sharp screen, camera ok. i won't replace mine for 5 years i think :-)
Good phone for perfect gaming.it doesn''t hang though it is dual core.i used to enjoy playing asphalt without hang.
Battery is weak and gets heated.soon.
is xperia sp display is sharp I don't care about viewing angles
is the camera is so bad or bad or average or good I just need to take a clear photos not professional photos

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.
