jeans pocket, the screen is quite clear, screen set to auto brightness, 8-9 hours battery life with (3 hour opera mini browsing with 3G, half hour opera mini browsing with wifi, download 300 mb of video file with wifi about 2 hours, 2 hours of video but with 3G and wifi off, 5 sms, no calling,1-2 hour not doing anything), fast charging, it only took 1.5 hours to charge from 0, very fast there is no lag at all, capasitive buttons very responsive, not able to play heavy game like doraemon fishing ....
It's priced very competitively but at the same time leaves some things to be desired.
For instance 1 ghz dual core cpu is very gud for midrange devices like xperia u or sola but for a device like p which is kind of upper midrange it's nothing extrordinary.(though i m not saying it's bad).
Then we have the battery.i didn't try to find any logic behind a 1305 mah battery for a 4" dual core droid coz there wasn't any sensible one.yes p has white magic technology that takes the advantage of predominantly white background webpages and save certain % of battery.but then again we'll not browse everytime there r other tasks too.it failed miserably on video playback (@gsmarena) giving less than 4 hrs which is really pathetic. browsing webpages with white magic technology wasn't that useful too as xperia p performed below average in browsing too.
Afterall what can u expect from such a small battery.

m not a heavy user-around 2 hrs of music play, 2 hours of surfing and occasional game playing like angry birds and an hour of talking per day- thats about it. no 3g calls or video playback for me(at least currently!!).
i think battery life will last for a day wit this usage...right??
RAKEB, 15 Jan 2012why no card slot ???? card slot is very important this time ?? special for android and windows Trust me it's not, just look at apple iphone and HTC one x, one s, one xl, all of this is because a dedicated interior memory is far better than an exterior one cuz the speed rate of interior is far better.

Still have not played with the phone, so cannot comment too much.
Regarding Samsung, Ace 2 and S Advanced are much cheaper than Xperia P. So it may be better to spend a little more money and get a GS2, thoroughly tested and improved for more than a year now.
riff, 01 Jun 2012I'm ready to buy new phone...so this phone xperia P or galaxy s 2...??hey...same problem that i have....!! please tell me which cell u will buy....!!

What Samsung phone? The two Samsung phones that are the same size are the Ace 2 and the S Advance, they fit 40 to 50% less rgb subpixels into that same physical size. I call that the opposite of compact. Good luck looking at web pages with your 50% less rgb subpixels.
Never ever buy this phone. Battery life is bad. Can never last you for a full day. Without WiFi and 3G.
gsmreader, 04 Jun 2012i appreciate ur opinion and i was in the past interested in this phone but now never so if you... moreLOL! You really think Whitemagic is of no use? So, what do you say about the excellent viewing angles and sunlight legibility of Xperia P then?!
After seeing the phone in real i am disappointed. The plastic bottom cap is just ugly, and the phone is quite thick. Too much space wasted on the front, could have been much smaller. Back to Samsung...or maybe they could bring the nice SX but i doubt it...

When reading the review battery results remember that the screen is far brighter than other phones. At the tested 50% level setting the Xperia P is 50% brighter than a Galaxy S2 and 100% brighter than a Sensation.
The Xperia P battery should actually outlast the Galaxy S2 both on phone calls and on web browsing. It's just poor testing and display of results that are deceptive.
i almost always put my S Note on 0% brightness so I imagine that with the P, you can make it last longer than tested ....
Anonymous, 02 Jun 2012The phone is great, and according to you guys it battery doesn't last long but again according... moreTrust me this phone's lowest brightness is much more brighter than your HTC Desire ;)
sony plz design a 2000mah battery for this beast n roll out ics update fast...
