Anonymous, 29 Jan 2016I am using Sony Xperia SP for about 2 years. This phone is the worst I ever had. There are so ... moreI wouldn't ban Sony just because XSP was a failure. However, the issues with this phone did tech me a lesson, that any flagship of yesterday is more capable and durable than a newly released mid-range phone.

I am using Sony Xperia SP for about 2 years. This phone is the worst I ever had. There are so many issues with it I don't even no where to start. The phone overheat itself and need to restart many time to get any reaction from it. The switch on button sometimes (often) doesn't act, so it takes minutes to actually restart the phone. Also the touchscreen doesn't seem to react and on a lot of occasion I couldn't hang up before it went to voicemail, or other time I couldn't pick up the call as the screen wasn't responding. Few times I had to charge it while it was switched off, as the battery wasn't charging fast enough,and still had low battery after 4 hours charging. I checked and no apps were open, so probably something else run in the background. Also simple apps are not responding like album, camera or even contacts. I have now literally deleted everything from the phone to try to make it work,but it is slow and rubbish. Cannot wait to get a new phone soon. It won't be a Sony for sure. If my life would depend on this phone to call help, I would be dead.
I've used this phone for 2 years, and it still work perfect in every aspect. Thank you Sony.

Hemy, 10 Nov 2015There are any custom roms available? http://download.cyanogenmod.org/?type=nightly&device=huashan
Link for Custom ROM CyanogenMod 12.1
I am using this ROM since a month and the phone works fine! Much much better than Jellybean 4.3
Bala , 03 Jan 2016Can anyone say?? Whether xperia sp can be upgraded to os version 5.0You can install CyanogenMod CM12.1 (Android 5.1.1) if your phone's warranty is over. There is no over the air update for Xperia SP after Jellybean 4.3. I have been using Cyanogenmod 12.1 since a month and the phone is working awesome!
I bought a broken sp from eBay to fix. Having disassembled it I replaced the screen, then later I bought a new battery for under £5.00. You can replace the battery but you do have to take the back cover off and get in there. There are videos on YouTube to guide you through a complete rebuild.i would advise a micro toolkit and have a magnifying glass. I've now had this phone for over a year and it's really good. About once a month it throws a hissy fit and wants a reboot and the camera is disappointing tinging the picture yellow although you can use the editor to get past that. The cheap battery from eBay lasts a very long time. Stamina mode gets me nearly 3 days if I don't use video and music. And heavy use still manages most of the day, ie, watching TV for 4 hrs on the Internet. I have around 80 apps and it runs fine, I have a 64gb sd card in it but it won't read my sandisk 128gb. I think the screen is brilliant, colours are vibrant but again the camera is poor, in fact my old samsung 5 mp is better than the 8 mp in the sp. Sound quality is great through decent headphones and the Sony Walkman app is very good. The sp has illumination on the bottom that lights up when playing music, a bit pointless but I like it.
First of all, I am a huge Sony fan. I read a lot of negative comments about this device but I just assumed it couldn't be that bad. Now two days after I bought it I've realized just how bad it is........the touch is just the biggest nightmare. My advice: don't even think of buying.
