Been using this for more than a year now! updated to ICS.

In my opinion this is the best phone in this range. But the newer model(like the one im using) may b the latest manufactured model has the problem with the touch screen, so its has become a shit phone. I am using the 3rd touch screen now. (replaced 2 touch screens before)

other than that theres a huge lagg when using google maps in ICS( has to root the frakking thing)

SONY buggers made this 4n and now I have a doubt even to try hi-end Sony 4ns.

PS: there's also the same touch screen problem with Sony neo v series (one of my frnds)

hope this helps guys

been using this phone for more than a year now i just gotta tell you guys this phone is one of the best model at this price range it has a lot of additional features compare to that contenders. yep it has some problems but which phone does'nt? major problem it has no card slot- but it has 6gb memory it's enough i think to day to day activity 2nd problem it can lags frequently but once you root this model you can have numerous custom rom available which runs more than smoothly compared to stock rom. so my verdict it's a awesome phone to be a 1st android title.....

I have this phone for more then a year and I have to say there was a massive problem with it.
The problem is that it lags all the time , its unbelievable . The amount of times it has lagged was just a nightmare I could not believe it. i had to keep on restarting the phone due to the lag that the phone had.

I won't recommend this to anyone.

It's been 2 years since i bought it its working fine. The problem that occurred to me is with the memory I've had to format it several times because there's no room left for new stuff other than that I haven't had any problems other that it lags while gaming so I'm the moto g but its still a great phone

Hello guys, am using xperia U from last 2 years, it is working fine on gingerbread, after upgrading to ICS it become slower, this is not because of mobile. it is due to ICS. phones which are having ICS in that apps will never goto sleep, all the apps will run in background and it is the feature of ICS. based on the app usage RAM memory will be get alloted to each app and it will keep on updating the RAM size. to solve this issue i found 1 solution. goto setting->developer options-> background process select 1 process at most. when ever u switch on ur mobile keep practice of doing this setting. this will solve all the issues. initially i faced battery heating up issue. this i shown to service centre, they said it is some software issue and they fixed it. after that till now i havnt faced any issue my phone working fine.
This is a good mobile in this price range. am suggesting not to use chrome or web browser bcoz these will consume lots of RAM size. ucbrower is good to use on this mobile.

Hello guys, am using this phone from last 2 years. It is good mobile. It works good on gingerbread, after upgrading to ICS phone become slower and this issue not because of mobile. It is due to the ICS, phones which are having ICS in that mobile all apps which ever installed will never go to sleep, all the apps will run in background. based on the usage of apps RAM memory will be alloted to that app. xpria U having lesser RAM size. hanging problem is mainly due to lots of app opened in background. i found 1 solution to solve this hanging issue. go to setting-> developer options->background process limit-> select 1 process at most and when ever u switch on ur moible u make practice of doing this setting. Many issues will be solved. As per my exprnce this is good mobile in this price range.

Why Android OS, v2.3 (Gingerbread)not upgradable to v4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)by using Sony PC companion ?
It is showing always that my device has the latest android.
Also in this mobile, and maybe in all Sony mobiles the sound is very low, and I'm always having miss calls,because of low sound
Sony mobiles only have a beautiful design.
