Had this phone for 2 years now
Speaker is gone after 1 year(I never used it without headphones,easy fix)
It got slow after 1 month of just using it for calls and messaging,reset it to factory defaults didn't help
And after a year and a half,it died,and had it replaced
After 2 years,it was still slow,hardly opened anything
Got rid of it to a Samsung Galaxy J5 2016
I've been using the phone for more than a year now and it has been a very faithful companion. It still runs as quick as it did when I first bought it, I've dropped it a few times and it still looks like it's brand new, and the battery life's still pretty good for me. I've never played any games on it, but I've been using it for web-browsing, music/video/photos via Sony's apps, and obviously phonecalls and messages, and it works like a charm.
Would absolutely go for another Sony phone in the future.

using for last 746 day... played many games even modern combat 5(some frame drops though bt playable), its actually e4 dual... (using single sim last 7/8months as dual sim draining much of juice also sometimes making network issue)... battery life yet good 4hr SOT on 9-10hrs use(networking, facebooking) camera not so good, front facing camera good... music quality specially headphone and my micolab speaker is really great :) overall happy.. want to buy another sony device if sony bring larger battery...
Oh right I bought this phone like 1,5 years ago and its sound quality has gone really bad and its power button doesn't work. I use app to lock unlock this phone right now. Camera quality is quite bad too.
But when it comes to overall performance I m quite satisfied for the price.
oh this phone is really horrible charging speed less than a tortoise data speed same,grand master of hanging not chess means really this phone should be band
I am using this phone from last three years but I don't have any problem in this phone.....the music player is good in this segment
Absolutely HATE it, I would not recommend this phone, I've had mind for over a year now and it's ridiculously slow. Sending texts is a nightmare and trying to receive calls is worse, it sits on a blank screen until it reaches voice-mail and I gave to ring whoever rang me back. And half the time I have the hold down the power button just to pull up the lock screen! I feel so cheated by Sony. I wish I had my Alcatel back.
Save your money, any phone is better then this
This sony brand cheated us, costly phone with reduced features, 5mp camera with aperture f2.6 , is it a joke? Sony easily fooled people, they make cheap quality phones and sell at high price. I am dissatisfied with this phone because they overprice their cheap phones.
my phone has become made an awful noiae had to take sim out as vattery cannot be removed. wouldn't get another experia to many problems with them
I've been using this phone for 1 year,and the microphone and the earpiece is not working
Took it for repairs,they coulfn't find the problem
It's slow,not enough storage,camera is shit,although the front camera is better,it overheats in a milisecond
Switching to Samsung gor GOOD!
Dan Frederiksen, 05 Oct 2016The battery management system is very poor. I've had it about a year and mostly on the charger... moreI've got the exact same problem with my phone. I'm sending it off to be repaired now.
Decent phone for that money.
It has problems with turning back on after battery drain. It goes on and off for some time, until it stores enough power to boot properly.
It also can have problems with storage, there is a bug bug when it downloads codec for every new video seen/received by Viber/Whatsapp...
Camera is slow and bad.
Battery is excellent, in ultra stamina mode it lasts forever. (I think it can go on for about 30 days, but i didnt actually tried it, since it shuts down everything else but msgs and calls).
There is also a problem with making groups of people in your phonebook and assigning them a melody.
