A not-so heavy user, 20 Nov 2012I never was a phone gamer (I had some gaming consoles for that), I only play on my phone when ... moreBasing on your average consuption this phone will drain its battery for about 1.5 day and not more than 2 days. Just dont make the brightness settings too high and led light on when not necessary. 30% percent brightness will do, and LED light when outdoor.
SYH, 20 Nov 2012i got mine yesterday too .. but it last 4 hour after heavy use :( ... how can ur phone last 24... moreUpdate to ICS and factory reset, then download Advance tast manager. I updated mine and lasts 4hours on 3G(browsing & downloads), 5hours Music via speaker, 2hours games and still got 40% from 80% when I disconnected from charger.
Xperia P is what i thought of buying after some extensive research and since i wanted to shift to an Android phone. My 1st day experience with XP was horrible coz Battery got drained out just like a running cab meter.Then i realized that a charging technique has to be there b4 1st use. Tips: charge ur new phone for 6hrs in off condition b4 use. I got a out-of-box ICS for XP. Guys i will suggest to go for ICS O-o-Box coz my friend had probs while upgrading and even after upgrading.
I feel ICS takes some time to settle down on the phone and then battery usage improves.
Pros: features/cost - gr8 phone in this range.
dual cam, ICS, HDMI connection, feel in hand, screen-size - these r some of the things i like about it.
Cons: Internal battery - no use of keeping a spare one :( . Micro SIM- cant hv a normal ph handy incase XP is down, Speaker sound - not too gr8
The notification ringtone in my Xperia p automatically switches off after a few messages have been received and it only vibrates thereafter...Can someone please tell me what is the possible reason behind it??

Heavy usage is when you play some intensive 3D game for a couple of hours, or surf the web for 3-4 hours. Currently there is no mid-range smartphone that could provide 24 hours of heavy usage.
As I already said, I also use HTC One S with larger battery (1600 mAh) but it doesn't last longer then Xperia P battery.

phoebe, 20 Nov 2012xperiap said to be as scratch resistant glass, not true,!!!cause i only purchase my phone 2 we... moreIt's not the screen glass that is scratched, but the shatter proof foil on top of the glass.
You can remove the foil (takes some patience), look for the info on xda-developers or Sony-forum.

i have a high expectation for the scratch resistant glass and yet you disappoint me,
