maxym, 14 Apr 2013You are talking about unreleased high-class smartphone, so it's normal to be better then Xperi... moreU seem to be obsessed with Xperia P I have seeing u posting n commenting about Xperia P for a long time
I have recently bought a new set of Xperia P and initially seems to like it. But i have my remarks on three things that i consider major defects.
#1: In dialing a number the process in too long and boring. One has to go to contacts and look up for the name tap the name then appears another screen with the phone sign, tap it then you get the number pad at last you have to tap dial to get through. which i find too unnecessary, long and diverting to attention if one is walking.
#2: The typing pad and it's letters are too small, one usually type the wrong letter, so you have to rotate the phone and consequently rotating the letter pad. Only then you can type in comfortably.
#3: Sometimes i get the feeling that the battery is some how punctured and that the power leaks out of it for no reason. Honestly this is the biggest and most major defect in this phone....BATTERY DRAINS OUT of power sooooo quick.
Apart from that the phone is OK and i seem to like it.
When is jelly bean rolling out for xperia p n will it solve camera problems?
Just few comments, cause Im an satisfied xp user. Great phone in every segment, fast, reliable all packed in quality alu case. I've been using xp for 7 months now and I will talk only about downsides and they are plastic part down the phone with xperia logo, and the fact that 4.1 jelly bean is still missing. Other than that, I can tell this is best buy for an mid-range phone.
[deleted post]You are talking about unreleased high-class smartphone, so it's normal to be better then Xperia P, but don't worry price will be accordingly higher.
And as it is still not released, so You cannot buy it, in India, or anywhere else.
Very good specs.
Battery has its cons, but happy with its performance.

because i really cant increase my budget..
Can the battery be replaced by service centre once it gets old and with low backup

Check if your Awake bar in Battery usage history graph is full blue (without any interruptions) if that's the case, then some app is preventing your phone to go to Deep Sleep, you need to find it and deinstall it.
Without any additional programs, using Extended Stand-by Mode, and GSM data turned on/of via Notification bar, your Xperia P battery should last for a day on normal usage, and for two days on moderate usage.
[deleted post]its correct that u have only 2 gb of phone memory for apps on xperia p and all other phones , but the games u r talking about have the apk file of a few mbs generally less than 10 mb , which are installed in the phone memory and rest of the game data goes to sdcard memory , or in ur case , the internal storage . so i that 2 gb phone memory u can install 100s of apps .
i just bought it 3days ago.It is clearly a good phone,except for the battery,it drains so quickly,well..it is an android right(popular for it poor battery).For a solution,i have download some battery saver application from play store plus lower it brightness and disable data traffic whenever i not use it and problem solved,it can survive a little bit longer.
Aion, 11 Apr 2013So according to u'r info,JB will be releasing on monday! Is it true???Yes the update will be rolling out starting from Monday.
Disagree with the last opinion... Unlike other users I find d this phone with a tremendous battery capacity! I can achieve at least one day and a half with moderate usage, a couple of calls and Internet. Did you upgrade to the ICS?? If you use with auto brightness and eco usage and often killing unnecessary apps in background. I achieved almost 2 full days which for any standard phone nowadays is rather impressive!
Nice job Sony, hope you keep up the good work with jb.
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.
lae games, 12 Apr 2013battery life is not a problem.. my questions is can high graphic games run on this phones with... moreMost of the games will not lag, but most demanding will probably lag. Mini Motor lag when there are lots of cars and graphic effects, but it lags on faster CPU&GPU, so you probably need top-class smartphone for lag-free gaming.
all original theme for xperia is dark. is a light theme original but dont change menu?
Cris.Austria, 12 Apr 2013I have GTA Vice City, NFS Most Wanted, Shadowgun, Modern Combat 4 and lots of apps installed i... moreYou can install up to 11 GB of programs (and data) on your Internal memory, so 9 GB is no big deal. Games can be transfered to Internal memory without problems, only utilities (that run during Xperia P power-up) and widgets won't run properly if not installed on Phone memory (2GB).
FYI This post is written on Xperia P (SI 1262-0930 - S/N CB511Z1UMD) - visible under the plastic cap beneath transparent strip.
I have GTA Vice City, NFS Most Wanted, Shadowgun, Modern Combat 4 and lots of apps installed in my Internal Memory in my Xperia P. That's more than 9GB in total. Now explain what you have said that only 2GB of memory can be used for apps in Internal Memory? LOL. Go buy an Xperia P before posting such misleading posts.. XD
