I have this phone since 2013. It's really good. It was a bit slow, but since most of the useless apps are either uninstalled or disabled, it works properly.

Sony is the best..^_^

I am using this phone since 1 and half year....with gb.
yesterday i updated it to ics.. (even after reading all negative reviews).
ICS Rocks!!! But phone was slow compared to gb but there are many solution to fix this problem.
go to settings-apps-all and disable applications which are useless for u.. Like- Google Plus, and some sony's apps like live ware manager etc..

i will recommend ics, its a must update for xu..:)

I have this phone for almost two years,but had two problems with this one...
First problem was after that phone calls took long time to call someone,like 30 seconds before this phone starts calling and same SMS beeing recieved like 50 times...Warranty service changed phones antena and now its ok,but after less then month i got 2nd problem...Wi-Fi and mobile network is way to slow,taking ages to download small app from appstore and this phone is ALMOST two years old,since i bought it... I love this phone,but two problems in almost two years are quite annoying...

I will describe this phone after one week of usage from perspective of normal user.
This phone feels comfortable in hands and has very good design including bottom LED light so it is original and stands out from some models.
Unfortunately this phone needs user knowledge of maintaining upgraded ICS as Sony made very bad decision of allowing upgrade to ICS. Keep in mind that phone works better on old version (GB) than on newer (ICS).ICS on U has big problem in keeping activities and handling simple apps even system ones like dialer or messenger.It becomes slow and reduces potential of A9 and it feels like 500Mhz rather than dual core 1GHZ. Solution for speeding up a phone is reducing processes and shutting activities with no animations in developer mode. Touch screen may seem a manufacturer faulty and user who think so, is right as phone struggles with registering touch in some places or you may have to tap twice or three times before phone responds however you can quickly get use to it and you will tap screen a bit harder. Screen display is stunning for this price range and I can give 8/10 stars for screen display which is supported by bravia engine(similar to development of Bravia in Sony TVs). I think battery is well enough to keep your phone on e.g. from 7 am to 9 pm. For people who uses phone very frequently it should me not much problem as weak batteries can be later replaced due to repracable battery. Camera is good but not for mass photo capture and I do not recomend using this camera for dark places even if LED flashlight is reduced.

Generaly you can only have best use of that phone if you remove ICS stock (you need to flash recovery and root your device) and install stock Kitakat ROMs or Zperience ROMs otherwise you may get frustrated.
Overall rank is 6.5/10

Maintenance is the Key! install Clean Master, disable unused modules, press 1 Tap Boost before starting any heavy app / game, keep only limited amount of apps at a time meaning don't press 'Install' next to every colorful icon on Play Store, restart once a week...
