O my god. One of the major drawback is that this phone comes with non-removeable battery. M not going to buy it.
What do you want for the price of this phone, a gold bar, i don't think so.
This phone is better value then some phones at twice the price, and the battery life dose exactly what it says on the tin, keeps going.
Well done Sony, really good value smart phone.

jameson, 13 Dec 2014Hi I bought this phone 2 months back it's good phone but it's internal memory is full everytim... moreMake sure in Google Play, auto updates are turned off.
Some,very few BTW,apps can be transferred to memory card.
Make sure all audio files/video files are moved to memory card.
Or, root your phone and install a memory partition app, that allows external memory to be used. It voids warranty.
Not what you expect from a device in almost 2015!
Anonymous, 15 Dec 2014Why are you disscussing these things here. Ask them on firstname.lastname@example.org Why?
Often their is No solution, it comes down to too much cost cutting resulting in a defunct product that is not fit for purpose!
Mac13, 16 Dec 2014Can u watch 720p movies with this phone? ThanksYes,provided you load them externally via a pc as low internal memory.
This is one unpleasant device. It is crippled by lack of internal memory. I managed to get 1.2gb, but you cannot install an update...as you will need every Mb! You cannot download a movie or game unless the internal memory is large enough. The memory card cannot be written to from a file manager, as phone has to be rooted first...so the message says on ES file manager.
Unless you find a way to copy game and data to sd card and load from, this 'smart'phone will never play a game of much use.
I am not sure if this restriction has been placed because of a lollipop update...one can live in hope!
Sony, I just feel you have gone too far this time with feeding the innocent public total junk!
I've only one thing to say...at the price I paid for this item...moto G!
Horrid device, that will indeed shut down, because it runs out of memory!
The screen is not bad, but low res,the audio is fantastic, and 4G superb...the rest junk, Avoid!
It's my humble request to you all, please don't go for this mobile. There are few reason below.
1. Phone will not switched off once in a week. it will stack and it will not switched off until battery will empty.
2. Application will automatically closed in middle of your work and middle of playing games.
3. It's non removable battery phone. so you can not change your battery whenever you want to.
Moral of the story is, Please don't buy this phone...

i used a plastic rod that is normally tied around your headphones that come with your phone just straighten that out and try and press that small button on the back with it and then it should come up with some sort of lights and charge your phone and turn it on and bang booom the phone is working like a ferrari.
