All you need is a USB OTG Cable and you can connect it to any Pen Drive :) something other smart phones cannot easily do and considering we get huge capacity pen drives today storage is not actually a problem...
P.S. DO NOT CONNECT WITH EXTERNAL DRIVES OR DEVICES THAT CONSUME EXCESS POWER!!!

It took a little longer than it might have done, because they had to order in a new touchscreen, but they processed it as priority when it was in. Of course will remain to be seen whether the replacement shows the same problems in a few months' time!

got this from an online store initial impression was great.had a little problem earlier while typing sms as it's size is only 3.5inch screen but i got used to very soon so not a big problem,sound quality is cool.but the main reason for which i have decided to write a review is that after a casual use for only a few months or so that touch sensitivity of the set is gone.the touch sensitivity from the left side of the phone is gone.for example if playing chess the pieces on the left side of the board cannot be moved,or when typing a msg the letters on the left side of the hand set doesn't work.i don't know what to do..?now thinking of visiting the sony care centre don't know if they can help me.

Don't ever buy sony phones. Biggest cheaters in the earth. Bought this phone in 2011. Suddenly switched off now. Without SIM card it works flawlessly. When I insert sim, it reboots and screen turns blur. When I approached service center, they said the amount to repair equivalent to 50% of the phone price. Now I'm using it as MP3 player.

You may find you get stuck in crash loop with some apps, but this is fixed with a factory reset. Obviously done at own risk - this is officially a service centre operation.

> In reply to sidhartha657 @ 2014-01-04 13:42 from utCB - click to readsorry to say you are clueless. Its not the number of apps but the type of apps, and how much advertizing they do by running in the background, or daemons installed. My daughter can install only 20 apps on her tablet or phone before bogging down, while i can easily have 50+ and same performance as when it was brand new.

I have a friend who installed all the chat and free calls apps on her phone, Skype, Viber, Yahoo messenger, WeChat, Line, Kakaotalk, Watsapp, you name it. Of course her phone wasnt working well, barely working at all, all those apps run constantly in the background, you cant blame the phone for that.

First rule for hanging/crashing phones is to uninstall antivirus and anti malware, and do not install from downloaded APKs. If you do then blame yourself for being less gifted, not the phone.

This model of xperia u is going smoothly till 3-4 months with low installation of applications.
But if u install more then 50 applications and if it is older then 6-7 it will go dead,means it will go hang repeatedly for sure until unless u format it periodically.
i will give 2 rating out of 5.
