I have this mobile since june 2012. Aside from the usual Sony low level camera video audio sound photos quality, it works ok on Gingerbread not ICS which is beyond its powers. Doesn't have any unusual simptoms or flaws. It only has 512MB RAM so don't expect miracles. Anyway, it's an old story by now so forget it. Many apps aren't even compatible with GB anymore so...check newer models.

*sigh* I don't even know where to start from......my sister checked the quality of this phone and told me the reviews said it spoils after 6months, I dint believe! lo and behold within 4 months the screen stopped working, it started getting hot and freezing, it goes off by itself for days....my advice is...if you buy it spoil it and return it before your one year guarantee is over

> In reply to tratu` @ 2015-03-23 09:59 from tU6q - click to readOfficial Sony ICS is exactly as described, in my experience. There's not a lot you can do about it, other than roll back to 2.3.7, which is officially a service centre operation, though is possible with flashtool, the appropriate rom (may depend on region) and a bit of luck (no rooting required).

It is an OK smart phone, had mine from introduction, only quibbles are :
It needs a high current (~2 amps) USB charger initially, e.g. an 'Apple triangle' to start if the battery is empty. Lots of USB chargers wont start it from flat.
I probably need a new battery now but it still holds up for a day of use.
note I inhibit the Xmas tree light to save current, too embarrassing in tube trains aside from increased battery drain.

is it posable to take my contacts out of my phone or read on a laptop via usb?
@
Probably but I convert mine to the generic format and email to myself.
from contacts select option key
send contacts
mark all
send
etc.
Otherwise you back up to internal memory and copy internal memory to PC via USB

try the google store from a PC, you log in with your Google identity (from a browser) and google will send you phone updates unless there is other damage to the phone.
Note google play was not the original name but it (the 'play' app) should be updated to current version with your first update, you need to enable the synch and back ground data traffic in settings - accounts and synch, and need to enable data or WiFi data traffic.
