For some people smartphone is very complicated device. Bye dumb phone and be happy, with battery, display....low price...
I, too, made the mistake of buying this phone.
The battery started failing four months after I bought it, and I was told that it would cost $100 to replace the battery!!!!! I was supposed to send it to a Sony regional service facility.
Always, always check to see if your phone has a replaceable battery.
Instead, I bought an LG K3 Boost Mobile with one month of service - for $20 on sale at Best Buy.
Shame for Sony phone have 64bit. Processor But android kickat is 32bit.
Never more Sony

Only solution is repair/replace by your self. Even my many years old ZTE and Huawei phones are still working like charm. Sony has worse batteries than cheap Chinese brands.

After exactly 2 years and two months (2 months after warranty in my country) I'm having the same issue with battery as MarkinIreland. Battery is drained fast and after ~ 55% goes to zero % in minutes (even when I plug charged in). It was good but it changed one time to this.
But still I'm not interested in new phone so I just bought new battery for ~ 20 USD.
Bought this phone unlocked exactly 2 years ago and fine up until the last 6 months...the battery is terrible and once you reach 40% it hits 8% in seconds and then takes 2 hours to charge....a friend of mine has the exact same problem....never again buying an Xperia

Used this phone for 1,5 years, and I hate it. Freezes often, frequently doesn't react when I turn it on, and is very slow. Camera so slow I avoid using it. And if I use it, photos usually not very good. (and catching the frame two seconds after I needed it to shoot). Battery lasts a day if not much used. Worst Xperia I've had. Switching to other brand after following this one for the last few versions.
