nice phone, very fast phone. but battery is not so gööđ,but I keep it with my heart,the lighting bar is so nice
i really love this phone.. been using it for about 10 months... been my sweetheart since April 2012..
but last December 2012, i accidently drop my XPU when riding motorcycle on my way back home..
some car STEP on this phone and the screen crack !!
but believe it or not, its still work and function well!! only the touchscreen not sensitive like before the incident happens..
now 3/3/2013, i still thinking wether to REPAIR this phone or buy Xperia GO/SOLA .. somebody suggest me please?
AnonD-73506, 02 Mar 2013I m also using xu...but sola price dropped ly aft one month f my purchase...so price s same...... moreI dont say floating touch and nfc are waste.I am saying that floating touch is just another gimmick and my friends having sola never ever used it...here in india,nfc is yet to pick market as its major importance is for wireless transactions which i think will be practical in india in another 5 years...but here everybody uses front cam for video chats...actually Xperia u packs a punch at its price point but sola's price actually brings it dangerously close to likes of atrix 2 and optimus 2x which i would choose anyday over sola...and the comment was my personnel opinion...your opinion may vary...

I have been using this phone since Sep 13, 2012. This phone is really awesome. No lags at all, runs smoothly.
I have played:
1. Fruit Ninja HD
2. Temple Run
3. Temple Run 2
4. Air Penguin
5. Doodle Jump
7. Raging Thunder 2
8. Subway Surf
without any lags.
Battery timing for me is 1.5 days on average.
It fell twice on cemented floor from 4-5 feet height with simple plastic cover on it but surprisingly not a single scratch on it and running perfectly.
Display is awesome and Bravia Engine adds more stars to it.
Camera quality is also very good outside.
6 GB storage i.e. 2 GB for apps and 4 GB for data is more than enough for me.
I have watched full length movies on it.
I love this phone and I love SONY...

AnonD-73506, 28 Feb 2013sola s better dan xu...I disagree...sola has expendable memory thats it..i got xu cause 8gb is enough for me with some help from usb otg...sola has nfc(no use to me),floating touch(again a market gimmic) but it skips the basic things like a removable battery and most importantly a from cam for all your video chats....xu marginally beats sola in most benchmarks too and i really like the illumination led of xu which is a real attention grabber...photos and audio quality is same because both of them use the same sensor...people prefer xu to sola and thats why the sales of xu beat that of sola...xu sold like hot cakes...finally its upto individual decision...
overall is good esp the appearance, but 1 thing ive notice is the 8gb internal 4 gb user.. what will i do to a 4gb? i think neo l is much better.
6 mnths since i got this phone. :)
awesome phone in this price range
looks pretty nice too
1 ghz DUAL CORE.. :)
runs temple run 2 easily.. as it lags in xperia pro and xperia ray.
nice crisp picture quality.. 280 ppi. :)
no phones give that in this price range.
only disadvantage is the memory..
but overall awesome phone
Joey, 01 Mar 2013For all those guys who wants to upgrade Xp U please read the comment below.....(Do not Upgrade... morei got mine XU its already ICS. i didn't update it. minor lag here and there but it ok. camera quality is so so, i have remove some unwanted apps. disable facebook, gmail, maps, gtalk, g+ etc. so my XU is smooth :)
For all those guys who wants to upgrade Xp U please read the comment below.....(Do not Upgrade)
I am a pure owner of Xperia U. An awesome phone indeed, until it is in version 2.3...Ill tell u the problems you will face in X'U once you upgrade.
1) The most important and unethical fact is you will lose the cameral clarity to the core...
Take a night photo in ver.2.3 and 4.0 you'll see the huge difference...
2) Usual problems like lagging,gets slow and some other prolems are additional.
If you can face these problems and if u can downgrade back to 2.3 go for and chek how it feels..
But if u dont know and do not have the source to downgrade pls, pls pls do not upgrade...
some nonsense Parsons making comments this mobile not quad core,not bigger display,not camera quality,low ram,no memory card.don't make again like this comments. NONSENSES. this price range yours think find S3 & iPhone5???????? this price range XPERIA U best mobile in tha world.
