I just bought this phone few hours back, pure white one. Set is very good, but the packaging is kinda poor. Components wrapped with very cheap looking plastic poly-pack. I only got HDMI cable, there's no USB cable in it, though it came with charger. I got intact sealed pack. Only thing I don't like is chrome finish on all sides. Because it's very scratch prone, and it's gonna peel off soon. Also, there's no front facing camera.

I owned this phone 3 months ago. It's nice. It's just that sometimes the phone gone quiet laggy with the display and the camera decreases a lil quality after upgrade to ICS 4.0.4. Anyway, it's far better than GB as it has nothing to worry with the apps. You'll never have to worries abt running out of memory. The battery is also improve a lot in ICS, standby for more than 5 days.....Hmmm, i love thi phone.

The battery is not very good you are right and I think thats the case with all sony phones right now. But mainly this is due the the widgets. After I reduced it I am getting some decent battery on it.

Currently i'm using Xperia Ray,but having a major problem with the battery,it doesn't even lasts for a day,i use my phone just to make and receive calls,txts don't use the internet much,have downloaded Juice Defender also,but even that didn't help,was planning to buy Arc S but the negative reviews about it changed my mind,xperia phones look good but don't have good battery life.
I'm from the Philippines and I got this phone for 12,700php. It's a great phone with great looks! I didn't upgrade to ICS since it has lots of issues but mine is with GingerBread and rooted so I can kill apps that uses too much battery and memory. Heating at the back of the phone is normal and I can live with it. For me, this phone is awesome!
Is this the last Sony Ericsson branded handset? Every handset that came after this is now a plain "Sony"?
