Terrible phone, extremely laggy after ICS update. Mine is so slow and crashes so often the battery cover is loose, so many times I remove it to unfreeze it. Some calls are impossible to answer, the time for the button to show is so long the calls go to voice mail. Others don't even have time for showing person name or image. I've reseted my Xperia U more than a couple of times in a year, and a few time latter it's lousy again.

Guys, Xperia U - ST25i is best for video clarity as it has 280 PPI and sound is awesome (better than iPOD quality). Its stylish look makes you proud. But It hangs all the time if you load it with more apps..
sonia, 24 Dec 2013so guys, which one is better Samsung or Sony? i'm so confuse about itSony M or Sony L
could any one tell me if i should buy this phone or not because i am confused of the mixed comments. One more thing am going to be a first for ths smart phone world. please tell me which phone to buy is xu or other
This is my first smartphone, and despite the amazing experience in the first couple of weeks, I got to say this a pathetic buy. I bought this phone for around USD 300 about a year ago, and honestly, this phone embarrassed me many times in front of my friends with much inferior feature phones. Basic things like opening up the dialer app, making and receiving calls are like a Herculean task. The battery is shitty, the loud speaker is muffled and crappy, whole UI lags like anything, camera sometimes gives you okay-ish pics in strong light and sometimes fucks the whole thing up. It would be better if we don't talk about the low light performance. RAM was advertised to be as 512 MB, but the maximum available is around 340 MB at anytime.
The only good things are the high PPI display and the LED notification bar. My brother's Lumia 520, which costs you a cool USD 100 lesser, outperforms this garbage in almost everything.
nick, 22 Dec 2013best phone for me. good battery clear cam and good in gaming tooGood for gaming? Even temple run lags in my xperia u!
Anyone who is reading I'm telling you now - Don't buy this. I bought this phone brand new and it's rubbish - the internet lags like crazy and simple games like candy crush allways force closesand lags. 1 massive problem is that the phone is soo small in width - Its the same as 3 pencils in width - seriously.The only thing good is for calling and messaging . You might think this is good but you will regret it so badly.
Definitely not worth buying. After using it for around 6 months i started facing problem with the touch screen which has gone totally useless now. The Sony after-sales is the worst i have come across in my life. So a strict No-no to Xperia U.
That was my first smartphone,an despite some initial happiness, a buy that i regretted much. My advice is to stay away from it! I have used it for a while on android2.3 and i think it was the time i was getting used to the smartphone idea, i believe that worked reasonably. But then i was happy to see the official ics 4.0,update (one of the reasons i bought this phone was the promise of the upgrade), and i readily joined the new android version. It was a hell:immediately a bug in the wifi would make it stuck to on so that very often the only way to connect to wifi was doing a reboot;maybe i had never used much gps before, but when comparing to my friend's i was often laugh because mine took hours longer to make the fix; Then over time phone became unusable even for basics tasks like calling or sending sms. I found then it was lack of ram causing the issue, and the facebook application growing demand; battery duration which has never been great, fell under the 8hours threshold: i had to start recharging it at work. Fed up with those limitations, i started to play with custom roms, and i finally found experience2.0 which at least fixed the wifi bug and improved response of the launcher. Disabling widgets, facebook, whatsapp, google+ and all other thing could pop notifications, the system became reasonably useful... Still my friends were si fed up with my complaints that they gave me a nexus4... Then the xperia u was relegated to backup device. I have finally stopped using it for anything "smart", and that's
