it's handy and pocket sized.
i'm satisfied with this phone...i surf the net,use apps...
since i bought xperia u I don't use my laptop.
but i have to say it has some disadvantages
1.when u answer ur phone it takes some mil-seconds to respond.
2.It has a small display for reading or surfing the net but the small size has positive point to do ur works in ur bed with one hand(seriously good point,u would never understand it unless u try it)
3.it becomes laggy by the time u use it more and install more apps
4.when u upgrade xperia u it gets lag.
5.u have to charge it every half of the day if u work with it 4 hours(surfing the net with data turned on)

Terrible phone, extremely laggy after ICS update. Mine is so slow and crashes so often the battery cover is loose, so many times I remove it to unfreeze it. Some calls are impossible to answer, the time for the button to show is so long the calls go to voice mail. Others don't even have time for showing person name or image. I've reseted my Xperia U more than a couple of times in a year, and a few time latter it's lousy again.

Guys, Xperia U - ST25i is best for video clarity as it has 280 PPI and sound is awesome (better than iPOD quality). Its stylish look makes you proud. But It hangs all the time if you load it with more apps..

This is my first smartphone, and despite the amazing experience in the first couple of weeks, I got to say this a pathetic buy. I bought this phone for around USD 300 about a year ago, and honestly, this phone embarrassed me many times in front of my friends with much inferior feature phones. Basic things like opening up the dialer app, making and receiving calls are like a Herculean task. The battery is shitty, the loud speaker is muffled and crappy, whole UI lags like anything, camera sometimes gives you okay-ish pics in strong light and sometimes fucks the whole thing up. It would be better if we don't talk about the low light performance. RAM was advertised to be as 512 MB, but the maximum available is around 340 MB at anytime.

The only good things are the high PPI display and the LED notification bar. My brother's Lumia 520, which costs you a cool USD 100 lesser, outperforms this garbage in almost everything.

Anyone who is reading I'm telling you now - Don't buy this. I bought this phone brand new and it's rubbish - the internet lags like crazy and simple games like candy crush allways force closesand lags. 1 massive problem is that the phone is soo small in width - Its the same as 3 pencils in width - seriously.The only thing good is for calling and messaging . You might think this is good but you will regret it so badly.

Definitely not worth buying. After using it for around 6 months i started facing problem with the touch screen which has gone totally useless now. The Sony after-sales is the worst i have come across in my life. So a strict No-no to Xperia U.
