Anonymous, 05 Mar 2017Terrible phone. Cannot wait to upgrade. It disconnects from our 24/7 WiFi every few minutes.... moreAwesome phone. I bought it a year ago for 180 euros and so far it has proven itself as a great phone in the matter of price. Has fallen on the ground many times and survived. No lags, no technical issues, everything works fine. I have a good experience with it and would recommend it to everyone.
teaman, 20 Feb 2017great phone
until it updated to 6 and then decided to brick itself.
gps no longer works, pho... moreTerrible phone. Cannot wait to upgrade. It disconnects from our 24/7 WiFi every few minutes. When on a whatsapp call, it changes to aeroplane mode and cuts the call off. It has also, on occasion just dialled one of the numbers from my contact list. This while on the table next to me with nobody anywhere near the phone.

Ray, 08 Feb 2017Comparing with HTC Desire 826 dual, which one is the winner?Neither, buy an older used high end phone, which is always better than new mid range phones. iPhone 5s is good, Galaxy S5, HTC One M8, Xperia Z3 and all this stuff.
I had the phone for over a year, with an over all great experience, although I have a couple comments on it:
It gets REALLY hot on the back close to the charging port.
Camera is really slow to pop-up when you select the camera app
Overall audio of the phone (When listening music, videos, or on a call, weather using speaker or not) is very low.
Back cover scratches really easy, unless you use a cover, but since the phone heats really easily and high, it is not recommended to use one.
Frontal camera is quite bad.
System still works good for me. Barely no crashes or whatsoever. Definitely a great brand but looking forward to a change in the near future.
Well, i had this for one year, never dropped it and, then one rainy day i fell on pocket where i had phone, from outside of it nothing happened, but inside it's mobo just died. So yeah rip cheap plastic potato.
until it updated to 6 and then decided to brick itself.
gps no longer works, phone and wifi signal drops all the time.
apparently a common problem.
no room for apps either but some you can at least move to sd card.
if you root the phone and enable adoptive storage it come a very good phone. Else not.
Wouldn't recommend it at all honestly; just a waste of money on my part. It's worth a mention that I don't really take a lot of care when it comes to tech; I keep dropping it and such. I've had this phone for about a year now.
+Nice build; pretty sturdy from what I've experienced. I drop my phone A LOT and it has only gotten 1 crack from over a year. It's worth a mention that I have a crappy bendable plastic case for it; saves the back from any scratches.
+Main cam is great. Captures the detain very well, even in dim light.
+Waterproofing is p well done for a low-end phone. Makes showers and walks in the rain a better experience.
-There are a ton of built in apps that you can't uninstall, you can only disable them. Takes up MOST of the built in storage. You have to constantly "clear cache" to free built in space. And you can only transfer a handful of apps to your SD card. Getting the 16GB version doesn't help.
-Front cam sucks under anything that isn't wonderful/natural lighting. Shutter on both cameras are slow as hell, hardly use it because of this.
-The back part, near the camera, gets hot really fast, especially if you're using a lot of apps, playing a game, or watching a movie. And not the "normal" kind of hot. I mean "it becomes too hot to touch" kinda hot.
-Gets really laggy over time
-When immersed in water, the touch sensitivity gets really messed up, also the audio jack takes a few tries to work after that. After a while though, it fixes itself.
-Take note of the low RAM; you think you might be okay with it, but you won't.
-Audio jack doesn't work sometimes; gotta take a lot of tries before it works properly again.
-Crashes/resets for no apparent reason; this also includes apps.
-Battery. Takes a while to charge; turning it off doesn't really help
TL;DR: Not a good phone. You can buy a high end phone from ASUS/OPPO/HUAWEI for the same price, even cheaper, and have an infinitely better experience. Waste of money. Only good thing about it is its waterproofing, and it doesn't even do it very well.
Does anyone know how to make that all my files go automatically on my memory card?
Not any better than early galaxy.

This is a good budget midrange smartphone with the durability of Sony. I've tested this on water for 11 mins and guess what? All went out good. Only the speaker became a bit low, but after an hour the normal loudness came back. Headphone jack and charging port worked as they should be-- even without those flaps. There's also no moisture build up in the camera front and back. Sony did a very good job with this phone although the storage is what brings it down. Make sure to get the 16gb version and your money is worth it.
The phone gets very hot in the hand and the battery life is poor. Build quality is pow which is unlike Sony. My headphone jack stopped wotking and also the camera sometimes didnt work. I would not recommend this phone.
this phone is not so good, low internal memory,i put 32 giga memory card i move all the 8 apps into the card and says that i have no internal memory. the housing is poor quality easy brakes .one day it just stop working ...
Sluggish at times and gets hot when used over long period. Impossible to get quality and affordable replacement for LCD/digitizer when damaged. Local shops refuse to repair Sony screen issues.
MEMSY, 03 Feb 2017Best phone ever, this phone has everything that I need it to have. Picture quality and speaker... morei would say: try iPhone 4s, you will be amazed by how stable it is and how good it camera is.
Best phone ever, this phone has everything that I need it to have. Picture quality and speakers, good for gaming as well, battery life is fairly good. Although sometimes it really heats up a lot and has only crashed 4 times ever since I got it in 2015. I can say that I am truly pleased with this phone.
My screen cracked though, so I cant get it fixed cos its expensive so I got body glove glass protector so works fine for me.
I am however still trying to get an upgrade for Marshmallow version 6.0
