> In reply to nick @ 2013-12-22 10:59 from sBSv - click to readGood for gaming? Even temple run lags in my xperia u!
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.

That was my first smartphone,an despite some initial happiness, a buy that i regretted much. My advice is to stay away from it! I have used it for a while on android2.3 and i think it was the time i was getting used to the smartphone idea, i believe that worked reasonably. But then i was happy to see the official ics 4.0,update (one of the reasons i bought this phone was the promise of the upgrade), and i readily joined the new android version. It was a hell:immediately a bug in the wifi would make it stuck to on so that very often the only way to connect to wifi was doing a reboot;maybe i had never used much gps before, but when comparing to my friend's i was often laugh because mine took hours longer to make the fix; Then over time phone became unusable even for basics tasks like calling or sending sms. I found then it was lack of ram causing the issue, and the facebook application growing demand; battery duration which has never been great, fell under the 8hours threshold: i had to start recharging it at work. Fed up with those limitations, i started to play with custom roms, and i finally found experience2.0 which at least fixed the wifi bug and improved response of the launcher. Disabling widgets, facebook, whatsapp, google+ and all other thing could pop notifications, the system became reasonably useful... Still my friends were si fed up with my complaints that they gave me a nexus4... Then the xperia u was relegated to backup device. I have finally stopped using it for anything "smart", and that's

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.
