Im using this, its not scratch resistant, i placed it in the safest part of my bag and still it has scratches on it. I didnt put screen protector because it says it is scratch resistant. I hate it when they say it is but it is not... Battery life sucks (well maybe because my data connection is always on) .. It is so light. It's lighter than an iphone. The screen was great and everything. In my area it's so hard to look for phone cases for this :(
I heard some issues about waterproof and ruggedness ..I mean xperia V won't survive any water test after a couple of months ....
Is this true ?
Xperia L or Xperia V ? I know that overall V wins ...but look at users votes on both devices L has popularity more than V and don't know the reason ????
I'm confused ?
Sony Xperia V owner, 02 Oct 2013Camera is good and overall the phone is good except for the battery which is really really dis... moreit is very strange. The works that most energy require are to watch video in internet (streaming), gps and blotooh, and to make photos.
In my xv (streaming in 3g)requires 24,82% during 40 minutes with bravia 2 and everything on. In stand-by with 3g on during 11,6 hours requires 3,31%. The total is 28,13!!! not 90% like you!!
It goes without saying that if you only use internet, without streaming, the draining is much less, around 8-9% in 3g during 40 minutes. In this case, the total should be 12,31% and you should have 87% left.
Leave your phone in stand-by with 3g on, take a screenshoot before going to bed and take another when you get up, as you know the consume per hour is (%before going to bed - % after)/number of hours. Check that and tell me.
The normal is draining 1% in around 3,5 hours if you have Extended Standby Mode on.
If your phone drains 1% per hour or more you have a problem with the battery, with the phone or with the apps you have installed.

ABO AmmaR, 01 Oct 2013hi can you tell me about camera please? (everything)Camera is good and overall the phone is good except for the battery which is really really disappointing for me. Today I used it for around 12 hrs with only 1 hrs of screen usage (around 40 mins max browsing) and the battery is down to 10%.
Sony Xperia V owner, 01 Oct 2013Yes the phone is updated. Does the calendar storage has any impact to the phone. What does it ... morei have no idea. Go to applications and ban every applicantions you dont like. Dont be afraid, if something stop working, enable the apllication again.
I have disable all relatived with facebook, gmail, maps, etc, and now i have more free RAM and maybe more battery. If some day i wanted to use facebook, i would enable it.

ABO AmmaR, 01 Oct 2013hi can you tell me about camera please? (everything)Its a good camera (13 megapixel, R sendor, and nice lents) if you compare with similar smartphones. Of course it cant fight with the Lumia 1020 or the xperia Z1 becouse they are from a new generation, but it still can fight with samsumg S2,S3, S4, HTC one and xperia Z. During the day the photos are nice without any noise, and with the same quality of xperia Z for example. At night the automatic mode its worse than xperia Z because z has sensor rs that catch better the light. However using manual mode the quality at night improves and its better than automatic mode of xperia z, but yo have to learn to adjust the colour, the iso and the exposure.
It is a nice camera, but remember that if you have to get the best results, you will have to learn the manual mode.
If i have 3 seconds, i prefer to use always manual mode, because the automatic mode , for my taste, makes too warm photos.
One advise, disable bravia engine 2 if you dont want to watch people as if they were the simpson.
Summing up, its a good camera, even for perfectionist people like me.

Try to disable blootooh and hungried apps, reduce brightness to 25%. It is like if you had been making potos during 2 hours. maybe the battery is in bad mood.
Anyway. To improve the battery, get root. Install NO-Frills CPU and set the processor to 702 mh. Gobernator: ondemand and noob. YOu will have around 25% more of battery.
m22, 01 Oct 2013does jellybean update eliminate sleep of death, battery draining and heating problems ?sleep of death sure. Heating and battery drain a Little. To solve heating and battery drain forever you have to get root and reduce the speed of the processor to 702.
