i have upgrade to ICS .587 and this phone is rocks!!
much faster and stable but battery drain slightly much more than gingerbread.
design quality is good, keyboard is great. camera is good.
sony is great company! i hope sony will make the new xperia pro with more cool features, faster, bigger screen, ip57 waterproof, and bigger battery capacity..
love this phone.
I been using this phone (MK16i) for more than a year, I upgraded it on-line using 3G connectivity maybe 2 or 3 times now running ICS version. I already reset to factory settings many times. So far I don't have any problem encounter with this phone. Used it as portable Access Point for my co-workers many months (I subscribed prepaid unlimited 3G connection). I am quite satisfied with the performance of this phone. My suggestion is purchase your cellphone from authorized distributor of the unit so that you have one year warranty if you encounter any problem.
Using this phone from last one year. Used so many apps, games, launcher, torrent downloder for movies, paying all online bills, chatting gtalk watsaaps, video chatting, gmail, yahoo, picasa, synchronized company mailbox, operating LED internet TV, used HDMI, sync contacts, facebook youtube, birthdays on screen, unique timescape & so on...... Nice experience with pro. Usage of laptop at home has been reduced due to this phone. Really excellent.
Really value for money.

Eisley, 24 Mar 2013Hey! For everyone: You would like to read my "MY report on the SE Xperia Pro" Just s... moreWell,
I think you gave all your experience with the phone in those three posts .So thank U :D
I am an internet fan so I prefer non-touch QWERTY keyboard.
Let's face it, non of the so called "top mobiles" provide a non-touch QWERTY keyboard.
Lets look at the competitors, From androidauthority website :
In the end the made a conclusion that the best is A nexus with a qwerty keyboard O_O
In my opinion,
The Motorola Droid 4 is Much better in spcs, as u can see,
But SE X pro would win for two reasons :
Availability (not available in my country)
NOW, I will stick to my Nokia N79 till the next high performence QWERTY mobile is up :D
My Xperia Pro MK16i Qwerty keypad is Slovak Qwerty Keypad layout... But I update my firmware then it's Y and Z works reverse...Do you have any solution about that???
I owned a xperia mini pro. This phone (the pro) has the same hardware (only the camera and screen are better in specs).
I think that it is one of the best querty phones in the market. And cheap in Europe in costs 174€ good price for an 8mp phone with 3g and fast for a single core with android 4 (after the update).
