Very bad phone. Constantly cutting off calls due to face touching screen whilst talking or touching one of the many buttons which surround the phone. Also, and this is a major problem, my screen will either work with the lightest of touches, requires a major push or just refuses to react at all. It will do this randomly and often all three within the same operating process. Many times I have received a call and the phone will not let me answer it. With the alarm, if I touch anything other than the screen slide to switch it off I cannot access the alarm, which continues to ring, and the only solution is to remove the battery.
Thank goodness I am now out of contract and can dump the thing. And yes is has been back for repair.
AnonD-126550, 19 Jul 2014I am using this phone since 1 and half year....with gb.
yesterday i updated it to ics.. (even... morehi how did you upgrade your OS?
could you tell me the step by step procedure thanks!
Shapik the don, 30 Jul 2014Ics is very slow should I install some accelerating apps if so which app!Adding memory management apps wont help. It is actually reverse of what ur thinking. Uninstall fb (use your browser) it eats about 45mb of your ram. And uninstall fb app updates and disable it. (all fb components). Disable all buildin apps your not using. In developer options limits running apps into 2 or less. If your not using google services like youtube you can uninstall google play services. (this is only optional) goodluck.
arun, 28 Jul 2014Touch always complaintWhy? Touch OK va ? Handling OK va ? Apps installed OK va ? Tell me ..

You can do it if you go google search xda developers - unlocking bootloader xperia st25i and rooting it.Follow instructions (very friendly rooting guide) and i am pretty sure you will be happy. Then you go on xda xperia u android development where you can download and flash ROMs. Good Luck!!!
