I like that phone, Only front camera is terrible.
I did not face other problems except one with battery.
I'm not using phone frequently. Anyway phone battery get empty after about 13h. I did try everything:
- reset to factory settings
- reinstall android
- replace battery with new one
- uninstall, disable some applications...
it did not help
One interesting fact!
I did charge battery to 100%, switch off phone, while OS is down (nothing should run at all), after 7h I switch no phone, battery is on 50%!!!???
That problem appeared after 6months of usage.
I got my phone as "new" from Amazon

Hi! I'm the one that posted comment on 2015-03-26 21:56. I managed to save my phone and I will tell you how I did that. Firstly, when pressing the power button, the phone blinked a red light. It would not
turn on. I wanted to flash stock ROM, but the phone would not be detected most of the time. When I got green light sometimes, after a while, the phone would disconnect and reboot. So this morning I tried again and got a blue light (phone was in fastboot mode). I flashed the boot.img file of CyanogenMod with Flashtool. The phone would still not turn on. So then I reconnected the phone to my PC and leave it. Didn't know what to do anymore. After a while I noticed a pattern: green light, Sony logo, reboot, red light. This process kept repeating. I remembered about recovery mode and I took my chance. From there, I did the usual wipe/reset and installed from sideload a new version of CyanogenMod. Now my phone is working again.

I do not recommend buying this. Phone easily overheats and lags. Front camera is terrible. The back cover is very flimsy. No upgrade to Android KitKat or later. I unlocked the bootloader and tested different ROMs. Not one stable version of Android did I found. After flashing and using CyanogenMod Nightly, my phone is bricked. It turned off by itself and now won't even charge. It just not worth it. I should have bought Moto G instead.
The front camera is reaaalllyy bad...the rear one is pretty good thou...its a little slow but stil awesome

Nice phone I wanted to get one for a while but then I found out that it is stuck on Android 4.3 and it's not upgradable anymore. Android 4.3 is the worst Android version.
