The phone is good. But something I hated in this package was all the extras:-
1. Charger: Wire is so small that if the charger is plugged on floor, a six feet tall man can not use the phone in standing position while charging.
2. Ear Phones: For the first time I experienced the vacuum ear phone was on Sony Erricson's Walkman Series phone and the experience was amazing. But now you spend so much on the phone, but what you get is cheap (I can not even call it budget or economical) ear phones.
3. User Manual: There is practically no user manual in the box. All you get is Start Up guide which teaches you how to put sim card and put the battery, Waranty card and few more useless manuals.
4. Cover: I spend Rs.15000 on a phone, I atleast expect a branded cover in the box which will cost company maximum Rs. 150. That is maximum. Oh yes they have given the screen guard which the shopkeeper said is a substandard.
But the phone is good without a doubt.
Lot of people are curious about Temple Run on this phone. I am playing this game since I bought this phone around a month back. The game is working well. To know the difference between Xperia U and I Phone 4S Temple Run difference, I played it on my friend's 4S and he played on my Xperia U. Frankly I didnt notice any serious difference. Screen size is same, so no problem. Touch of U is equally responsive as 4S. My friend said that there is a little difference in graphics quality of U but I didnt notice. Anyways the point I want to make is this is a good phone. Even I Pads and S-IIIs have so many negative points. So if you look at overall package, Xperia U is also a good value for money phone.
Anonymous, 27 Oct 2012DO NOT UPGRADE TO ICS! worst decision ive made. I was excited to upgrade to ICS without readin... moreInitially I also behaved the same way you did. Dont get so much upset. Reset your phone. Restart it a few times. The problem will be solved. I have done the same thing. If the problem doesnt get solved go to the service centre, I am sure they will be able to solve your problem.

DO NOT UPGRADE TO ICS! worst decision ive made. I was excited to upgrade to ICS without reading the review first, now I am regretting it. before ICS i am very happy with my xperia U, no problems whatsoever, after updating my phone is such a mess! so many problems, lagging, signal lost, occasional restart, and many others!
Now i am desperately trying to find ways to downgrade to gingerbread
since i upgraded to ICS i have problems with random signal loss! how can i go back to gingerbread?
