Shekhu, 27 Oct 2013can any be specific about its camera,? I'm thinking of dis phone....Well...kind of long story...i have been posting a while ago about this fact, but now having my own phone, the testing goes more specific, and i will say more on this forum mostly for those who want to buy this phone for camera performance...
Overall the camera is VERY WEIRD!...and Sony offers a lot of surprises when it's about software issues. I though that was the cause of Ericsson branding but still it borrows same quite of software deals.
The camera final results ARE GOOD (to VERY GOOD in some situations in my experience)!...but...it recalls some software issues, like SE Hazel's focusing issues, and the Xperia x10 minipro automatic bluish tint, the final quality overall results, are a mix between xperia J and Hazel.
There are a few issues in my experience and i really want to share it with you and to approve who has it also:
1.on the screen, the image appears quite blurry so it's hard to notice when it is focused or not...although it is focused and the final picture is good, the screen has some issues on that (very close to my ex HAZEL, that had same deal when showing how focused the image was, but it had only 160 ppi old screen, and sometimes some details vere showed good). Also, on the macro shots, it seems that the light isn't adjusted right, and it looks like a black and white extreme overexposed picture, weirdly, the picture looks focused and lightened up efficiently, but this is so confusing! (i believe Neo L had this weirdness but i did'n owned it, so i can't tell it certain).
2.led flash it's ok, not too strong but it can handle some macro and portraits in good way (very close to SE HAZEL, kind of yellow-ish though...in low-light, mostly incandenscent white balance set can take good shot by it).
3. macro focusing is good but it requires quite more than 10 cm from the object in macro, and in low light portrait focusing, should be used with only automatic (recall Hazel when macro and mostly infite set were taking blurry shots).
4.The stock camera is very unuseful...best settings i found yet is by the Ucam (along with camera zoomfx, 360 fv-5, snapcam, hdrprocam and camerapro) third party app, that can handle very good focus, sharpness and colour reproduction on this phone processing (but again, in all cases, the screen is so confusing not adjusting light and sharpeness, when focusing macro, mostly with flash in low light it's simply just black and white).
5.And last but not least (indeed i must do more testing), like gsm arena showed in its camera testing, there are some focusing problems on le left upper corner and the right lower corner that may remain unfocused just like Z1 or lumia 1020 corner blurred zone...till now, by my comparisons, including stock camera, those zones are not permanently there, but only in some certain situations...anyway i am still testing and i will put some samples on my gmail account very soon...
So, who can offer help to my testings to see if i'm right about those above, i am here and also on email@example.com ...
I only tested 2 phones and there were the same issues...
SONY SHOULD SEE THIS IN TIME, AND DO SOMETHING WISE AND RESPECTFUL to its most beloved customers!!!
past 2 months am using this phone.i did not get any issues like hang ,lag..everything is perfect,superb performance.camera quality also good.if you want to see the real clarity of this phone please capture the picture then see.
jolly.exe, 27 Oct 2013But it hangs .my brother facing prob:(There are few important things to verify its hanging:
1.the card's age (assure if it's formatted).
2.check if it's a cutted sim to micro sim or it's a fresh new micro sim (the cut option may lead to sim irreversible damage).
3.turn off led notification (in anyway it's not that useful as one on XU at least).
4.some third music\camera\battery saver apps (like tactile player or neutron player could give errors, or skype\temaviewer not being exit).
5.the proximity sensor activity (mostly when it's used with apps that turn on\off phone).
6.try to use it with wcdma\gsm network set.
7.check by other smartphones the distributor's antenna signal.
Good luck setting it right!

Bought dual sim phonejust two days back for 11,692 from amazon.in. No words. to explain it's performance. Awesome phone in its price range. As mentioned in the specs, it's mentioned that it comes with 4.1.2. But I got 4.2.2. Screen resolution, processing speed, Internet etc.,excellent.
but a small question, how we have to set default storage to external sd card? I've searched a lot for it. Please anyone tell me?Thanks in advance
