To increase the battery life just kill the apps when not in use from Recent Apps by swiping then either left or right. As the recently closed apps still keep on processing even when we dont use them, they consume battery. I personally do so & get a battery life for 1 day or more with keeping mobile data continuous ON, calls & games and STAMINA MODE switched OFF.
Hope this helps quite a bit.
Shantanu, 03 Jan 2014has anyone checked a class 10 memory card in this phone ??? does it work in this H/S ???Yes..!!! I use a class 10 SanDisk 16gb mem card and it works fine .!!!!no issue at all....!!!
I just wanted to get a backup phone until I can get a Xperia Z, and bought this. A few customizations and I love it so much, I'm not sure if I want to sell it and get the Z. 2 and a half days with one charge and it's stil at 50%, with a lot of calls, some gaming, browsing, awesome phone. I have no issues at all.
Anyone who's got the Z can comment on how good is it? If it's a 'bigger SP without LED strip' I'll go for it... I'm concerned about it's battery life..
Pros : Premium build quality - great pleasure when handling this masterpiece - WOW HD screen - great audio quality - unique chipset - full connectivity options
Cons :not bad Camera with accurate colors and good at outdoor ... Just if the software of Camera is better ... this gonna destroy the competition - average wifi signal - have bugs in closing apps even my Mom's 170$ Lenovo Tab is lot better in multitasking without closing Apps
Sony Has great hardware and they are generous to give it to you at reasonable price and also they are known for their coding and software part ... If they make devices with free software problems ... its just time for them to achieve global respect
Great phone in everything except camera which is really below avrg!
I used LG,Nokia,Samsung phones but this one is ten times better than Samsung. Best features in this phone is touch,music and clarity. This phone worth buying. and best thing is battery backup is 9 hrs with full music n 3G net surfing..and on normal use its last almost 12 hrs with 30% battery u can watch review on my youtube page.
Worst company ever
I used phone only 1 week and wants to repairs
It has WiFi problame and application auto close
I do service 5 times but problame not solve and
Piece not replaced .SONY is worst company and worst service center. Who want to buy. APLEASE DONT BUY ANY SONY XPERIA PRODUCT
Hi all Gerard here, I have found this to be a great phone. its well built and very fast. The light up strip at the bottom of the phone is a nice touch. I work in a phone shop in Ireland (I wont say which ;-) ) I have set up about 50 of these for customers and have not had a single one back :-) Just wanted to add my 2 cent :-)
I am using XSP from last week. It s an awesome phone. Didn't felt any touch problems,WiFi issues, any lags, force closes etc.
the battery provides 1 day backup. (about 2 hrs gaming. 3g network, videos). front camera is not that much good. main camera is 7 MP. it took decent photos. use normal mode and do manual adjustments instead of superior auto mode. it will give you good photos. there is a lot of options in camera. cant see any pixel on screen. good brightness. I felt viewing angles are comfortable for me. LED notification bar is eye catching. Also there are small apps, so we can watch videos when browsing, it supports usb otg. you can play contents in your pendrive. headset provided is not thatmuch good. bravia engine2 does its job very well.there is a lot of options in walkman player for improve the audio quality.
