im from india. i purchased this mobile and upgraded the phone to ICS right away so i had no experience on how the phone works with Gingerbread. however recently when i had a few issues with the touch screen and performance i contacted the service center regarding this. they then downgraded the phone back to gingerbread after service. now with GB running the performance is brilliant. but however the ease of use which i enjoyed in ICS missing as GB is not very user friendly. but the performance of GB is unmatched. so i suggest people not to upgrade to ics and use gingerbread to avoid poor performance and battery backup.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2013-12-06 13:17 from fnBi - click to readDont. Have had this for about a year, its one of the first versions of sony experias, its kinda heavy for such a small phone (but Ive dropped it a number of times already so I guess its durable), it slow, and freezes from time to time, and it rearanges icons on you home screen when it sees fit. Ive been used to it for a while now, so ill be sad to see it go after i upgrade, but it all in all not woth the money IMO.

> In reply to akoba @ 2013-12-06 08:55 from fsTy - click to readI have to agree. I know some people are managing to get on well with ICS, but I tried countless resets to default etc and it was still slow and buggy. I'm sure the way ahead is rooting and custom roms, but for those not so inclined, GB is solid and quick. In the end my phone had its touchscreen repaired and as part of the service process it was reverted to GB, and it's great now. Quicker camera, faster GPS lock, actually responds when a call comes in, etc etc. It is also possible to do your own downgrade without unlocking bootloader/rooting, you just need flashtool and the GB rom image to use - but do at own risk, and you may find a few quirks (e.g. system apps going into crash loops) until you do a defaults.

Phone is realy shit. It's very slow. Sometimes it is just blocking. Often you are not able to pick up, just because the slide switch does not appear on time. So you see you have a call, but you can not take it. And switching between the apps - good luck. It is realy realy bad. Just to check something in internet - take your time. Display is good.
