I have updated with 205 and the phone is a beast! The battery is a monster! Disable the stupid background data. This is all I have disabled so far and the phone goes 2 days without a problem, with wifi, browsing, gaming, calling, etc.
But before you update make a full factory reset with an option to delete all files, and one more after you update.
The phone flies afterwards. Cheers.
Battery Draining..... !
.205 fixed all the bugs and introduced a new headache, battery draining. Come on Sony. Fix this too !
At last May be I found the battery draining solution after doing some experiment...Now I am updated with latest 205...The main culprit for battery draining iz mediaserver..U will find it in battery usage section.....Now I am happy with my SP..It iz doing great :) ..Battery backup iz now awesome .To control this mediaserver I found some possible ways..I am sharing it....
# Stop touch tones and any kind of vibrations.
# Use xperia home screen.
# Use Greenify app to handle auto start apps. Just select all apps those it recommends to hibernate.
# If u use LTE version then use only GSM in network section.
# Force stop or Disable google services , google play store , location services etc from -->apps-->all.
# Setting-->more--->media server setting-->disable it.
# Disable nfc.
# Stamina mode On.
# Keep ur brightness as low as possible.
# Sleep time 15 seconds.
# Dont use any unnecessary apps.
Greenify app iz just awesome :).Usually it works great in rooted phones ..U will get the full service of this app in rooted devices..However mine iz not a rooted phone yet it iz performing itz best ..:)
Dont forget to share ur opinins sp warriors :)..Thanxxxx :)

Omar AbdELHak, 27 Jun 2014i just wanna ask is ram 1gb good or not ? plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz replyyyy ???... more1GB of ram is good enough for midrange phones, it should be enough for moderate users, but 2GB/1.5GB of ram is of course BETTER, you won't have problems/lag at switching between apps. more ram means you can open apps without worrying each time to close them down because it won't slow down your phone. Xperia Z and Zr has 2GB of ram and they had their prices cut down too.

Feel that it lacks screen quality. I'm using clear type. Search in ebay for better brands like 'gearmax' they may cost higher but give premium quality for ur phn.

A big waste of money. I liked the red color so I bought it. But 1 week in my hands and I already regretted spending about US$299 for it. It heats up like a flat iron, restarts on its own, and just lags all the time. I thought I could sell it for half the original price and then the red color chipped. Finally I was able to sell it for US$90, even explaining that I sold it real cheap because of the problems. My buyer said he'll bear with it since it was very cheap LTE device he got from me. And XPERIA service in the Philippines is no service at all..
