I bought this phone back in 2012 to be my backup phone and it worked well..... as long as you don't install anything.
1. Phone is just too slow
2. The screen, started to act up 3 months in. It started to become unresponsive to touch in one part of the screen
3. The screen unresponsiveness became a very big issue after a few more days. almost the entire screen could not recognize touch/clicks
4. I contacted SONY support - what they told me will shock you!
5. They told me that if I bring the phone to the SONY service center, it will take 6-12 months to repair due to lack of parts needed to fix the phone
6. I ended up throwing the phone in the garbage in just 3 months.
This phone is basically a garbage SONY tried to sell for money. Because you know, SONY!

My J couldn´t even run any other app. Worst phone i´ve ever owned.
Absolutely terrible phone. Was the first smartphone I owned. I can't remember a single positve thing about this phone - actually, the battery was ok, but since the phone isn't capable of running literally any app without lagging, that's only an upside if you only use your phone as a phone.

the display is great...bold color and accuracy...it's bright...the ram is slow.. only runs 512gb ram at that time but I'm don't find any problems with it aside that I cant runs game pretty well on it (I don't really play game on mobiles that much though)...
aside from taking picture or multitasking, this phone is great when i use it to watch movies and listening to songs...since it only support 2g/3g i cant get my connection speed above 10mbps but wifi connection is great...
Bluetooth is great too, i can get it connected to my i mac and transferring files between these 2 machine is easy.. on the other hand the internal storage is small, so small that i kinda get annoyed and had to install micro sd card on it...
what striking me the most about this phone is the design. which is unique to me cuz i never seen any other company had create this kind of design...
i hope that they upgrade the phones though...make the display 5 inch(Bezel-less if possible), bigger ram, quad core chips, better camera mp, bigger storage, bigger battery, USB-C for charging.. keep the design though and NEVER ever remove the headphones jack :)
For all those who hate this phone can you read its name J (as in DJ) every xperia has its codename or for what purpouse was made .
This was my dream phone when I was a kid. I never took it since I couldn't afford it. I loved it and I still love it.
mine uses wi-fi alone how d i change this coz i want to use bandles

This smartphone has unique design and it would be nice to upgrade to a new 2017 model (with all necessary characteristics).....!
I do not know what is worse - branded phone or android spy-system itself :(
In hospital/airline mode You can not look at SMS/MMS counter, radio FM(?) also could not work in that mode... FAIL. Only Chrome as browser "option" preinstalled...

Not happy with phone, had it a few months and it has major software issues. Doesn't connect to any other computer when trying to transfer pictures, doesn't connect or recognize Bluetooth devices, and when I put on Data, my phone service is unavailable, so I get no texts or phone calls!! Piece of crap, had a better Sony phone before, this model sux.
I like the shape design very much, however the storage n memory make this phone retired
Guys, i read a article saying there is a Android 7.0 custom rom for xperia J. Maybe u guys can try to flash the rom and sharing ur experience with me? Appreciate!
