Looks astonishingly fabulous. Music output is top notch. Aluminium back makes it strong, yet it looks so delicate that you'll hardly take any chances and will take extra care in advance - which is worth the looks.
OS can be upgraded to ICS. Plus the additional sony's interface is amazing. The themes are just magical.
Call quality is normal. Internet speed is better than the other phones in this price.
The best part is the display, its more than amazing - watch movies, or view images, or play games, this one leaves no stones unturned.
The inbuild capacity is around 16gigs which as per me is good enough. You don't play all the games all together, once you are bored with a game uninstall and get a new one. If the garbage is collected properly, space shouldn't be an issue.
The RAM, 1GB - again if the garbage is collected properly, even this is not an issue, my phone has never hung, nor any app had faced a slow down yet. But to get this performance I regularly stop the unwanted services and kill running processes that are not required.
The worst part - Battery. This one part can make you dislike this wonderful device. It requires charging atleast 2 times in a day. So if you travel a lot or are away from an electric source for entire day and are a decent user with 1-2 hours calling, an hour of internet browsing with 24*7 sync on you email and chat accounts, be sure that you'll end up with a dead battery before you reach home at the end of the day. There are many ways to reduce battery consumption, but its a drop in the ocean.
Being aware of the battery issue I yet chose this phone because the other tremendous features cannot be side lined just because of battery - I use a travel charger. The saviour is the original sony charger, it actually fuels up the phone to 100% within an hour. Hence its worth going for this phone if you don't mind shelling some extra bucks on a travel charger.

Leonard, 20 Apr 2013My aluminum bar is having some kind of scratch and spot lines how to remove themWhat aluminium bar, there is no aluminium bar on Xperia P, only aluminium case, transparent plastic bar and plastic cap.
Scratches on aluminium cannot be removed because it is brushed, so it will always be visible difference between that, and the part you repaired (with sandpaper).
Little john, 20 Apr 2013Hey maxy bro, I haven't seen a 'repair' option! Where is it?Little john,
You have to go to System update section, and choose Update button. After you finish procedure You will get message that there is no firmware update available and you will get option to repair your installation.
Take care to backup all important data although everything stored on /sdcad/ will not be touched.
Also, don't forget to check Away bar, ICS is notorious to have Deep Sleep problem on some smartphones.
I love it, love it badly loving it :)
My dream phone finally its in my hands ;)
i used HTC Desire S & HTC EVO Design 4G... nw finally bought XP, great for camera lovers, works fast.
perfect & Economical comparable with any Big Cell :)
