I'd like to mention some disadvantages of Sony Xperia SP :
1-The applications can't be transferred to the SD card which is making the phone slower and hangs after installing many apps.
2-The internal storage isn't 8GB as mentioned, it's 5.37GB including the phone apps which is decreasing the storage capacity for the users to install more apps and games on the phone.
3-After activating the mobile apps, it'll be loading over the ram which is decreasing the capacity of it, plus the ram capacity is less than 1GB.
4-There's no use of SD card in SP cause it has been designed to handle the videos and images and music only.
kiokomei, 17 Dec 2014im in a big confusion, what do you think is best xperia sp, zenfone 5 or moto g2.I agree with @XperiaSp that SP does have a better GPU, but Moto G 2014 manages its RAM better and should do better at games (I have played real racing 3 and asphalt 8 on both phones). The zenfone 5, according to me, is your best option since it has 2GB RAM, the GPU is as good as the Moto G and the CPU is also as good as the Moto. If audio and fast updates are important then the Moto G makes more sense, otherwise I would say the zenfone 5 is your best option.
this is very good,performance n stylish phone i have ever used.a notification led light are awesome.....please 4.4 kitkat or 5.0 lollipop for xperia SP(c5303)

kiokomei, 17 Dec 2014im in a big confusion, what do you think is best xperia sp, zenfone 5 or moto g2.Go for either moto or SP. Xperia SP has a better GPU and CPU however Moto G 2014 has an overall smoother performance. Zenfone 5 should be your last option.

I have bought Sony Xperia sp C5302 in rs 15000, I love this phone too much, it's never hangs while playing games or browsing net,and it's design is too much beautiful,there is only one demerit of this phone is it update on 4.4 kitbag otherwise this phone is very good
mag c, 12 Dec 2014Hey, r u serious? I'm from sri lanka too. I got the update few weeks back from the internatio... moreI have the C5306 and no, I didn't get a notification saying the update is available. I checked it using the phone's updating feature and PC Companion, but non shows me an update :(
what i love about this phone: the size, the notification light strip (though it doesnt last long, one of the LEDs had already gone cuckoo by only displaying green light all the time), and i love most: THE BATTERY CAPACITY
what i hate about this phone: SLOW SLOW SLOW!!!!! LAG like **** especially after wifi is turned on. even if wifi is not on, it takes hella long to even open up message.if i lock it when it's lagging, it wont turn back on if i press the lock button again. it requires a few tries of lock button spamming -_- the camera sucks too. the back camera focusing just sucks big time. the quality of pic captured wasn't detailed enough compared to my old xperia go. color wasn't nice and the details blurry. and the front cam... it's just VGA so it sucks very badly. also, the loudspeaker wasn't as loud as xperia go. a turn off for music lover like me.
i really love sony phones for the design and shape, but the usability of the phone sucks. my previous phone, xperia go, which i loved for the water-resistant quality and the loudspeaker and the camera (though the focusing is damned slow but the picture quality always comes out nice), unfortunately had some problems with the touch screen: the left and right sides (q/1 and p/0 of the keyboard) couldn't be detected. the touchscreen was a fail.
conclusion: i guess i should stop using sony... but samsung, htc, lenovo or whatsoever aren't my choice. i'll probably go for iphone though much pricier that what i usually get but it's probably gonna be worth it
Good bye Sony back to Samsung. I go as Sony obviously don't give a hoot about its customers.I had. Sony Ericsson vivaz looked great was terrible was told Sony by themselves are better so gave them a go what a mistake after the first update phone useless do slow my old Samsung S2 even better!!!!

This phone is the worst smartphone I have ever had. It is beautiful, looks solid, and has a nice screen.
After 2 updates by Sony, it has become very slow. When the screen is in standby, it takes approx 1 minute to wake it up. Start up sms: 40 to 50 seconds. Start Facebook : 1 to 2 minutes. It is a shame that Sony puts such horrendously slow mobile on the market. And my phone is only 2 months old !! Deleting all unwished apps did not change anything. This phone is not work 100 dollars. To be avoided at all costs.
