So this is a 1 week user review.
Am directly posting what matter to me most... these posts are based on my own preference and interest...
1)So talking about the phone design 9/10. easy to use and handle. have a sturdy build quality to the whole phone except the back cover which feels flimsy.
The LED light notification running beneath the handset is an attention grabber, it will make you phone stand out from the Samsung clones!!!... and other brand phones.
2)Display looks good 7.5/10, it have the natural contrast and the brightness of the LCD units. And the washing out of image is not as intense as some people say. I have a suggestion that Sony must enable their bravia engine to whole ecosystem not just confine it to movies and album then the display becomes a stunning unit..
Touch sensitivity is not that great as an Iphone but after enabling the glove mode it is ultra responsive..
u just need to hover above the screen to get it done.
Sound 8/10- good when you switch on the X loud Feature otherwise it is a low volume unit You even can't hear the phone ringing outdoors...
Camera 7/10- as review suggest not a good low light shooter the pictures have grains and over saturates the RGB colors.
No comment on video as i didnt test it.. sorry..
could have the done better with a powerful led light which is the tiniest and not that powerful to light up a dark room .
Connectivity- 9/10 have good reception earpiece is good sound clarity is good.. covers the basic stuff
3G is good.
Battery 9/10 - The single most important USP of this product is the BIG 2300mah battery, the only reason why i extended my budget. Till now i haven't enabled the STAMINA mode of battery even then i get 15hrs of battery backup. I am a medium user.
Songs for almost 3hrs, browsing net 3hrs a day, not on stretch and watching music videos 10nos, and playing games for an hour.
am waiting for completion of the 10 battery cycles then only i will enable the stamina mode. other battery saving options are enabled..
These are solely based on my preference and usage.
non removable battery is goog or bad
after 1year .. Does the performance of the battery is going to decrease

Here's how to install huge games without filling up the internal storage:
1 - Root the phone using DoomKernel's toolkit, no need to unlock bootloader hence his method doesn't void your warranty.
2 - Install app FolderMount (google the apk ;)
3 - Install games, follow the game's instructions to make sure it's installed and run correctly
4 - Use FolderMount to move the game's Obb directory to external SD Card
Camera deterioration focus problem?
Here's some few tips.
Setting > apps> all> camera > clear cache.
Open camera, set to normal mode, change metering to average.
