Not bad.. The battery life is lasting for a day.
I've upgraded my xperia U to ICS and experienced some lags. Quarantine some bloatwares and use Nova launcher as default launcher will be helping.
Sms, camera and contact were taking ages to open. Haven't solution for this problem yet.
It's easier to root this phone if you already upgraded to ics.
And the last but not least, it's worth to buy.. :D
[deleted post]Here in Pakistan it is available for Rs. 17,500. It shud b available around Rs. 10k in India.
naim, 07 Dec 2012how to use otg cable?
does it need any installation?
No need to install anything. Just connect otg cable and then connect ur pen drive, you are ready to go.
But you can only listen music and watch videos thru otg. If you want to access other files install latest version of Astro file manager. Then you will be able to access other files as well.

Good reasons to buy xperia u
HQ Display/High 280 pixel density/Text Clarity/Reality Display/
2x Dual Core Processor/Fast Response/Zooming in real time/
Playing YouTube in HD/Do video calls
Nice UI/Gingerbread is stable
Good call quality
USB Charger 1 hour charging = 90% battery
Very Accurate Touch/keyboard even it has small screen
3D Surround Bass
Cool Transparent strip
Camera-soft pictures/noises in low light/Flash is too white
4 gb only for multimedia?
2 gb for apps
Xloud is mediocre produces crackle sounds in high volume
Dedicated Camera key is hard to press
Heavy Usage last a day
Bulky not as slim w/ xperia Ray
MTP not mass storage mode unable to transfer media to PC
PC Companion is pretty heavy and Useless
Transferring media by via bluetooth
ASTRO file manager
Gingerbread is STABLE please dont use ICS It is for 1gb RAM thats why there are still many low-mid droids uses
Xperia U is a Good Buy...
Ercelan Ensari, 06 Dec 2012Swiping right close the apps? I think it's to just shorten the list. Researching this, it's not 100% agreed what happens, but the nett result is that swiped applications are generally closed, and memory/resources released - but not necessarily for any great benefit (with well behaved applications anyway!) for the memory management reasons already discussed.

Anyway, you shud reset your phone it will bring ICS settings for you, and yes it shud increase your phone's performance.
