Tryied different pen drives bt one of them didn't recognised by sp. If anyone have been connected a pen drive (not another mobile phn, usb mouse or game pad- they works fine with sp) plese give me a favoure ABOUT THIS NON RECOGNISING EXTERNAL USB STORAGE PROBLEM, may be its a fault with my sp or SP'S BATTERY POWER IS NOT ENOUGH TO POWERUP A PEN DRIVE... or what...?. I tryied with xperia pro, ray and miro and the result was same.
Sony i love it....... Ur xperia sp:-
*camera is superb with day and night low light shots
*fast cpu and gpu performance
*on heavy usage also,good battery backup
*plays and records full HD flawlessly.
CollGuy, 24 Sep 2013Ha Ha.. Lol.. SP is good in almost everything, except CAMERA.. Everyone knows the camera... moreFor anyone not happy with camera and willing to sacrifice battery life and a little gaming performance go for xperia T! Xperia T has far better 13mp cam and only xperienced gaming issue on asphalt 8! All other games run smooth! Xperia SP is a bargain for the price so something had to be sacrificed to keep the price down especially considering the big battery!
AnonD-160080, 24 Sep 2013For all those people looking forward buying this phone: 1 Looks: This phone has awesome looks... moreNice experience... Me also didn't find any touch issue..... Hmmmm heating and camera didn' fixed in new 254 update... May be fixed in, next update..... I want 4.4kitkat......on this
xperia l or xperis sp???? think to buy sp bt heard about touch screen problem... is it true? software prob or hardware prob???
Android Man, 24 Sep 2013i had one of these, my experience was not good, kept overheating and battery life was dire. so... moreIts true, Z is the only good Xperia phone. Maybe Z1 is better, have to wait for retail units and real life experience. So far everything after Z has been disappointing, expecially the great failure ZU, and ZR is pretty lowsy for its price, it need a major price cut asap, Z is the only one worth its price tag for now and even on Z you do get a somewhat soft-tone graininess on many photos.
For all those people looking forward buying this phone:
1 Looks: This phone has awesome looks, looks stunning especially the led strip at the bottom of the phone, when you play music, receive sms email Facebook notification,incoming call notification the glowing led is awesome. I don't know which one looks better the black or the white one, I am having the black sp. Atleast looks best than the galaxy clones.
2 CPU & GPU: Xperia sp is the midrange king packed with 1.7 ghz dual core cpu and Adreno 320 gpu. Games run awesome on this beast. I played iron man 3, rr3 asphalt 7 games were buttery smooth on this phone.
3 Display: The display is good color production is pretty good and sharp, it also has mobile Bravia Engine2. Those using Samsung might not like this display as it is TFT, neways the display is not oversaturated like amoled. Speaking about viewing angles I don't think anybody will use the phone by tilting at specific angles.
4 Battery: The phone comes with non removable battery power packed with 2350 mah. My phone lasts for a day playing games, browsing internet. If you don't play games and just use the phone for calling and browsing the battery lasts for atleast 1.5 day.
5 Walkman: As usual listening music on Sony is delight. Phone speakers are loud enough. Ear phones are not that loud but good enough didn't try using other earphones.
6 Camera: Snaps clicked are ok can say average quality might be some software issue. Hope Sony will improve in their upcoming updates. Snaps in day light are awesome, night snaps are little grainy.
My phone is updated to .254.
I purchased this phone in June and till date and haven't faced the touch issues as mentioned by many. The phone never hangs like galaxy grand.
Now coming to heating issue, yes this phone gets warm while playing games, prolonged watching YouTube videos. I feel it's because of the powerful GPU the phone has. Those facing heating issues please update your phone might help.
Coming to battery problem this is a smart phone, and like other smart phones it's battery is gonna last only for a day not like basic phone which lasts for a week. If you continuously play angry birds, temple run the battery is naturally gonna die in six - eight hours.
Wi-Fi strength is bit poor at times, often I find weak signal even if I'm in Wi-Fi range.
Hope I this helps.
Armaan, 23 Sep 2013Hii Lustra..
Wht r u saying yar ???
Sp camera is not bad.. Is actually normal and ok..
Its ... moreVery nice bro ,

Armaan, 20 Sep 2013Who said xperia SP Camera is worst ????
Stop trolling guyes..
M using this phone... moreHa Ha.. Lol..
SP is good in almost everything, except CAMERA..
Everyone knows the camera of SP sucks. Before commenting on this, please use the camera comparison in here ( GSMArena ). Best if you can compare it with S4 Mini & Lumia 720. You will know the difference..
I assume you are one among those who bought SP and you want more people to buy it, so Sony will some how rectify the mistake when sales volume increases or YOU COULD AT LEAST PE PEACEFUL IN MIND THAT, YOU ARE NOT ONLY THE ONE WHO GOT FOOLED BY SP CAMERA...
it is better than samsung s4 mini,htc one sv and these mobiles are also cost than xperia sp
Good news friends.....
Sony Xperia Smartphones
Sony Xperia phones feature combined multimedia applications and Exmor camera sensors with fast processors from Qualcomm. The Japanese tech company is now developing Android 4.3 Jelly Bean for selected Xperia phones which be pushed primarily on the Xperia Z family. Android 4.4 KitKat is expected soon to arrive to the following devices:
1. Xperia Z family: Z original, ZR, ZL, Z Ultra and Z1 Honami
2. Xperia tablet S and tablet Z
3. Xperia mid-range phones: Xperia M, C, SP, L, S, SL, U and many more
i had one of these, my experience was not good, kept overheating and battery life was dire. so i got a Z now wow factor.
AnonD-189750, 23 Sep 2013HI Everyone, I've changed over 4 phones in the last 4 days, but cannot get an android with an ... moreNo Android phone is as capable as Nokia N8 or IPhone 5 in terms of camera.
You might choose,however,between Samsung S4 Zoom or HTC One S, as both are decent, though I won't compare them to either of the early two devices.
Better camera? go for Lumia's C Zeiss 8 MP and above (925).
oh One more Pro: excellent features for this price range ( got it for 320 USD, 1239 AED)
ok here is a personal review for those who want to buy this phone:
1. premium feel and looks
2. super fast performance
3. no lags or hangs so far ( 245 software)
4. great screen ( am not impressed by over-saturated super amoleds of Samsung)
5. expandable memory
6. average-to- good battery performance
7. great video recording
1. wifi short range
2. wifi signal drop
3. average still camera shots
4. heating problem ( though not much as Galaxy S4)
5. average headphone volume level ( Sony want protect your ears from high levels perhaps)
I'm using SP since August. So far I would rate it 4/5 stars.
The cons could be solved by 4.3 JB or later firmware updates (hopefully)
Thank you all. Cheers
