Sony Xperia P. I really dont recommend this smartphone. I bought this 6 months ago. It comes with android ICS - later can be upgraded to JB. 8 mp camera is average with a weak led flash. Music player is weak. Battery drains fast. And a lot of bugs. Dont waste your money on this one, even a second hand Xperia P, or Xperia. Sony smartphones made in china are craps.

SUS = Sony Update Service
Repair is done by choosing System update, and going through process until you got the message that your System is already updated. Then You will get additional button for Repairing installation.
Do backup your phone before the process.
After repair, do 2-3 full battery cycles (after update use your phone until battery goes under 10% then charge to 100%, and use again until under 10%, also make sure that you don't 'fill up' the battery i.e. don't charge it partially in between 100% and 10%).

But I think after a repair I should manage some full charge cycles, am I correct? So after you answered that, I'll try repairing. Thanks a lot for the quick reply maxym.
nazi, 05 Oct 2013sir please dont say like this.I checked Xperia m and Xperia L,but I cant take a final decision... moreOK then.
Take Xperia M if you want longer use on single battery charge and don't mind smaller memory for user programs and smaller screen (but higher DPI), or take Xperia L if you need a little better specced smartphone with bigger user programs memory, at the expence of shorter battery life per charge.

When my phone's battery power is at 15 or below, and when ... moreI have similar situations like yours, but I use my Xperia in different way, since it's my second smartphone (first is HTC One S, my business phone), and I use it for 3-4 phone calls per day, and occasional mail and web surfing. This way my battery last for 3-4 days, but if I start using power intensive operation when battery is under 20%, battery percentage start to drop fast (about 1% per minute or even faster, but when I stop it and go to stand-by, battery percentage goes up for 2-3%
Problem arise because battery percentage is calculated by actual battery capacity (measured in mAh) and its quite high when there is small battery drain (in stand-by, or without using data), but when high battery drain starts, capacity drops down.
It usually happens when battery is old (lots of full battery charge cycles), or when battery calibration is messed up.
So, give it a try with repair, and send us back a feedback.
Does anyone have this problem??
When my phone's battery power is at 15 or below, and when I turned on data and start browsing, all the battery power drops to 0 in a sudden and phone turns off. But I can turn it on after few minutes. And then it displays the setup guide in the status bar and it feels like some settings had reset. Can I fix this after a repair or what should I do?
Thanks for anyone who gives a solution.
jamir420, 06 Oct 2013I am sorry I did not communicate very well. Get Exdialer for contact loading issue and HD call... morenope... failed.. the hd caller itself does not hang.. but in the background it is still using the native semc.phone. the only difference in using the app is, it shows that the call has been picked up, shows you the time elapsed from start.. but in actual the call hasnt been connected.. cuz voice does not go through..
conclusion: SONY JB sucks.... big time.. never SONY again.

ok i will give it a try..
Mahfuj, 07 Oct 2013Hi, i m using xperia p for almost 3month. nw i m confused abt upgrading to JB. Should i upgrad... moredo not update to JB.. reason:
even though every bit of user experience is much better in JB, the downside will be just one: the basic purpose of your devise will be ****ed up!! when you will receive call, it will take atleast 6 seconds for the call to conect after you have accepted the call!! same with placing calls!! phonebook will lag as hell!! if you do not have these issues now, i suggest dont update, just throw away ur sony and choose from any other brand.. i am so pissed at SONY for making suhch shitty software!! what good is a phone when you cant even make and receive calls without loosing your mind!!
Hi, i m using xperia p for almost 3month. nw i m confused abt upgrading to JB. Should i upgrade or shouldnt? i want suggestion. And wht will be the advantages and disadvantages of upgrading to JB. if anyone kindly give me some suggestions, i will be thankfulll to him...

I Just got my old neo v repaired. Anyways Xperia p I would say is the best 4" phone ever. The 13gig useable memory have a lot of advantage, the screen is still the best and can go head to head with any phones available right now. Down side is the battery. Cams are not the best but ok for a midrange. Another option is s3 mini, they go head to head. S duos too. But if you want a premium phone at midrange xp is the one for you. Also if you Windows os is your consideration, you might try to see HTC win 8s and Nokia 720.
