I wonder how people don't appreciate this phone... this is a middle to low end phone nowadays .. as for the lagging of screen touch problem i think sony admitted that it is due to the coating made to the screen to avoid scratches makes the screen hard to touch.. as for the lagging of system problem well what do you expect from a 512 memory anyways?.. you better buy a high-end phone if you got the money and stop whining here it won't trick anybody.. the phone already served me for 2 years and still kicking though i had to root the phone and change the screen responsiveness and stuffs like overclocking the cpu. this is a great device and will remain as it is
Guys do not I repeat do not but this phone I have has it for a year and 2 months and it has already been in for repairs twice.The screen is slow and unresponsive and there is barely any storage I'm constantly having to delete stuff to make space.
I now have a IPhone 5s which I can only sing high praises for!
This is one of the phones with the most issues I have ever had. I am often unable to answer calls, the phone becomes EXTREMELY slow after time - even after factory resets. My phone regularly reboots on its own etc. etc. etc. My advice is to not buy this phone, as I know I wouldnt have if I could go back. Mind you, due to the lack of support from Sony, nor will they see me again either.
Just after a short time period ,it has become sluggish.Even when i was precautionary about the downloading and apps

Some batches might be affected more than others, due to manufacturing methods and parts suppliers. Mine was faulty. I was just unlucky. It's impossible to predict.
May vary by region, but should be a free repair under warranty though.

Xperia U,P, SD card (OTG mod,otg in verysmall
Such devices like Xperia U,P.... iPhones,
and some other devices which have no
external storage but USB OTG supported,
can use SD card or pen drive with OTG.
There are many kind of OTG cables, but it
is very hard to carry an OTG cable & a card
reader all the time, so i am thinking of an
OTG with card reader in a very small (as
small as it can be) form which can be carried
all the time.
the card reader will b stored(may be fixed)
with the back cover(as shown in the pictures)
i am usuing very small card reader slot, thin
wire(like insulated copper coil wire), a tiny
As we know, in OTG pin 4 and 5 are
shorted so i am usuing a tiny switch, when i
switch on, the pin 4 & 5 are shorted & the
cable will work as OTG, & when i switch off
it will turn as a normal USB cable, so there
will be no Battery Drain.
i am trying to configure it ,but having
problem when soldering the wires with the
micro usb male port.
The connections are so tiny, so it is very
hard to make it alone, i tested it in a bit
large form & it workes, but in small size as
shown in figure it becomes very hard to make
i am requesting you all to try it & make it
if we can make it personally i think one day
such cables will b available in market in very
stable form for all usurs.
Kevin, 03 Feb 2014You do not under any circumstances, want to upgrade the software on this phone. I did, despite... moreI would agree. Unless you have a pressing need and/or are willing to experiment with custom firmwares, leave it well be. Stock ICS basically works, but there are lots of performance issues around it that will almost certainly mean you regret upgrading. Mine got officially reverted by Sony when it went back to have its touchscreen replaced, and it's never been happier. You can also revert with Flashtool, at your own risk (root/bootloader unlock NOT required), so long as you can find the correct stock firmware for your region.
If you MUST upgrade, best use Sony Update Service software. Note that you might not be alerted on your phone when ICS update is available in your region. You have to plug it into SUS or similar to check for certain.
Kevin, 03 Feb 2014You do not under any circumstances, want to upgrade the software on this phone. I did, despite... moreThe official upgrade to android 4.0 turns the phone to a real shit.
The solution is to flash the smartphone with a fresh official android 4 rom or a cyanogenmode 11 rom. You will not loose your data but make a safe copy!
Now my xperia U is as fast as it was and I am happy with. I installed a fresh official sony android 4 rom
You do not under any circumstances, want to upgrade the software on this phone. I did, despite there not being any issues with performance and it turned into an expensive paper weight. It lagged badly and I couldn't pick up calls or be heard by callers amongst other problems. Had the original software restored and the phone is back to where it was. Good value device but leave it be.
How to upgrade my Sony Xperia U into ice cream sandwich version currently i am using the version is 2.3Version so kindly assist
