Sony U is annoying only because it's very slow, and here are few interesting things regarding this phone if you want to use it normally:
1.you'll have to unlock bootloader, 2.install CM11 android 4.4.4 3.set CPU governor to 'performance', set I/O scheduler to 'SIO' and enjoy your new old phone. Only drawback is that the battery will drain faster but phone will work great.
Just google all the steps and try it if you haven't already throw it in a trash.
I have a problem in my device,.if i open my wifi or bluetooth.always comand as error..how can i fix it,.somebody help me guyz...
I am using this mobile for about 3 years, it has Android 4.1 custom ROM, it has high sound, good camera, no problems in calls, little heating after playing games for a while.
Battery stands for 3-4 days while mid. usage level, and 5-6 days while lite usage level.
It takes about 2.5 hours to charge.
Of course, it is not the best, but it is very great.
I love Sony.

Hi everyone, I have using Xperia U for a week. I got an issues that my Phone won't receive any signal when I used Telkomsel or Indosat Service Provider. My Phone can receive signal only if I use '3 Service Provider'. Did anyone have a sugestion how to solve that issues? Thanks in advance.
I have this phone from 3 to 4 years now. Two contacts have gone to reject list, can anyone tell how to remove a contact from reject list?..i tried all settings in vain.
i bought this phone in june 2012, it was beast phone back then. i had rooted it and tweak it as my choice.I still use it as a daily driver with the kitkat custom rom on it.
It's really great phone you can take selfie with back camera easily and it has every function must purchase it.
I have been using this mobile for last four years till now its working fine
I bought this in june 2012. I regret it. Slow processing, bad camera. Lags. Hang frequently. I cant do anything with it. Just sms and making call only for now
It is looking good . but all are things like inside the phone is totally bad...
the only one thing which i like in xperia u is its look..... rest features are useless....!! and if you have to use it for more than one year then please restore it after every three month....!! otherwise it will hang and process slowly.....overall, its look in best and rest everything i hate.
