Dont update to the latest version. (4.something) it causes the device to lag. If you've already upgraded to it then you can downgrade it which is pretty simple. I did it without any previous skill or try and the phone still works fine. Just Google: Sony st27i downgrade.
Bought this phone in 2013 and still actively using it. Main usage is texting, photographing, taking notes for reminders, and listening to music. In 2016, the phone's cover for the charger broke off due to excessive opening and closing, but the phone is still going strong. Only considering another phone now because I need a front facing camera too.
I bought it 2013 still working
I change digital Screen bcz it broked
It still good phone
Sony has a super connector
small size, easy to carry, easy to root, pretty good battery life, Walkman app is kinda nice (so obviously mine is now a dumbphone turned portable MP3 player)
WAY too much bloatware, microSD card slot is recessed too far (need a stir-stick to push the card in, and tweezers to remove it)
My Sony Xperia go serves me well. But the thing is the USB and 3.5mm jack covers are easily got damage after a year. One thing i love about this phone is that you can put it inside your pocket whilst working out.

I love the size and the ease of use. Other than a newer Sony, which I cannot afford, there is no other phone that I want. Although there is no front camera (I know what I look like so why do I want a photo??) it is the best camera I have come across. Few new phones have specifications good to warrant my ditching my wonderful Sony.
best phone, bought it in 2012 and m still using it, its affordable and manageable. and it has water proof yay!!!!

Australia: Presently plan is with Optus - bad customer "service" want to change carriers- but will changing SIM mean that my stored phone numbers and calendar dates disappear ?
its a really good phone, m still using the phone since 2012-16, sound software quality is still better than any of the new high end devices
trekkan, 27 Aug 2016That is exactly my situation as well. What date did you get it in 2012?November 2012 if i'm not mistaken, battery also is an issue due to its easily drained when used in data. Wifi connectivity is good and dropped a dozen time but its durability is good.
Good phone i have since 2012 and up to now (2016) is working fine, just some minor issues with the earphone cover and charger but manageable.
I really loved this phone. The camera is very good (very good for 5mp). I changed it for a new one because when JB arrived, it was too much for a 1300 mah battery and is comprehensible.
why is this phone still running on os gingerbread, my own never updated and all the apps are outdated
It's good if you want a cheap phone for easy use. After some time of using the phone, it will lag a lot and games will crash very often. It doesn't have a secondary camera which bothers me, not a very good phone but it serves it's purpose
