I am using this phone from last one week now & its too good.. people who surf a lot or play a lot or heavy music listener should go for this phone easily because its battery backup is too good.. screen is also great.. browsing is fast.. overall i m quite happy with this phone.. I hd gone to purchase Lumia 1320 but when in same range i was getting much better camera, android, dual sim then purchasing lumia 1320 would hv been a wrong decision..
Yrr wot abt sony's aftr sale service... Nd second point s evrybdy s sayin dat dis ph s very deligate ..

Zhang Nan, 09 Apr 2014but he said, he's not a hardcore gamer who need tons of ram, and I think upgrade is not alway... moreCant deny that general usage and browsing is somewhat better on for example Galaxy Mega 5.8 with its 1.5GB RAM than on Xperias with 1GB. 2GB RAM is my minimum requirement, its really useful. For example my BlackBerry Z10 has only a 1.5GHz dual core CPU but thanx to 2GB RAM it is so smooth and fast even when browsing heavy desktop version web pages with flash content and everything.
I kindof agree with samsung on this one, midrange need at least 1.5GB RAM.
1) Excellent display
2) Very fast processor, no lag at all even with heavy multi-tasking
3) Some might tell you the RAM is insufficient but such self-professed pundits know too little themselves to make any informed opinion
4) Wifi antenna is exceptionally good, manages to latch on to very weak signals most other phones cannot.
5) The battery is the most awesome part of the phone. It lasts forever - you may even sometimes wonder if it goes below 30% so you can finally have it charged back up in time for the next day. Mine lasts typically for a full 2 days at least and my use is very HEAVY.
6) I do not use the camera much, to me all phone cameras are equally worthless, but my friends tell me the camera on this phone is quite good
(Why worthless? google: "true camera resolution" "dots per pixel and camera picture quality" "megapixel resolution versus camera sensor size"
Cons (few, but grave):
If you have no qualms about it, you may root your phone with a custom ROM and probably get around these trivial problems and the phone has nothing to be complained about (but very few might be brave enough or possess the expertise to do that and risk the warranty on a new phone)
1) Phone crashes unexpectedly over open networks and sometimes even when the network turns off due to a router reset. There seems to be a software bug with the WiFi handler application. Although it reboots really fast, something of this sort is not expected. This problem is recurring but cannot be recreated at will which makes it all the more difficult to pin-point and avoid. I have been in touch with the online Sony Customer Care Center and they don't seem to be aware of this problem. Even the guys at the Customer Care Center admitted mine was the first phone of the model to fall into their hands. I'd recommend you wait for the software updates with these bug fixes to be released before buying.
2) The Sony Walkman player that comes with it is buggy too. It causes the phone to reboot or freeze and you have to press the little blue "Power off" button with a .5 pencil head (hidden inside the SIM cover near the SIM1 slot) to turn it off since there's no option to pull out the battery. However you may circumvent this by disabling the app completely and using a 3rd party app.
Masato, 09 Apr 2014It really is impossible to reason with a rock.U hav nothing to reason here..neither do you game nor a app lover, u r one average user who jst calls n msgs presumably, so stay happy wid this box! Cheers for you..I wud suggest better switch to a Nokia GSM mobile 'Buddy' :D
This fone is a gud midrange offering for all users lyk him, for all other heavy users Nexus 5 is just around the corner.

And, he want a bigger display and then Note 3 is not much of an upgrade, plus it has region lock.
i have this phone for 15days t2 ultra is awsome no singal problem in this phone everybody must buy t2 ultra dual

Firstly, T2 UI is superb and it use much less ram than note2& note3 's touch wiz UI
Secondly, IPS display is better than Amoled screen
Amoled has oversaturated and unnatural colour and has cartoonish vision
Moreover, T2 has Ominibalance and unibody design
and a little bigger screen and camera is cool
Battery life* it lasts 3 days for normal user and 2 days for peofessional user and 1 day for heavy user and heavy gamers
You can enjoy excellent battery life

So i think i will not affect by 1GB of RAM. And i love this Unibody Design. I will not use more than 2 GB of apps (Total apps ). So internal memory also not a problem for me. Right now only my problems are 1.Whether T2 Ultra Scrren is better than note 2 or not? 2. For a heavy internet usage the battery will withstand for a day or not?
[deleted post]Dont do it, Note 2 is not a great device in any way but has the advantage of 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage, and T2 Ultra has same resolution on a bigger display, which means you are not gaining anything. Go for a 1080p phone with 2GB RAM if you are upgrading.
Its kind of unreal to think that my 4.2 inch BlackBerry has higher resolution than both Note 2 and T2 Ultra.
Anomynous, 09 Apr 2014Now that is cheap, well below Sonys suggested price here but not THAT much cheaper than expect... moreBy the way, thats the LTE version im talking about, single sim. SRP here is equal to inr 25,500, normal price is well below that, maybe 10 to 12%.
champ, 08 Apr 2014where its available at such a steal?Now that is cheap, well below Sonys suggested price here but not THAT much cheaper than expected so i have no problems believing that one could find it at that price. Good news.
Masato, 08 Apr 2014That's what task killers are for... And why are you using a device with only 1gb of RAM if you... moreTask killers arent good for anything, they cant free up RAM on newer android phones, all they do is slow things down.
This is how Android, and the Linux kernel, works, it use as much RAM as possible to make the phone faster, by keeping stuff in RAM an app can be awakened in seconds, thus making the phone MUCH faster than if it had to be loaded from flash storage. If you start a new app its all fine, the Linux kernel is free to overwrite the RAM used by those cached apps anytime without any performance hit at all.
Cache is good, task killers are bad.
Edit: Not the same type of caching but... Anyone remember the old PCs where you could disable the CPU's Level 1 cache? If ever you tried it you would get an idea on what caching means for performance, it took half an hour to boot WinXP with L1 cache disabled on a Pentium 3.
