could you please please tell me how can I degrade it to GB??? Thank you very much for your kind help
Anonymous, 06 Dec 2013how does it work thinking of getting one Dont. Have had this for about a year, its one of the first versions of sony experias, its kinda heavy for such a small phone (but Ive dropped it a number of times already so I guess its durable), it slow, and freezes from time to time, and it rearanges icons on you home screen when it sees fit. Ive been used to it for a while now, so ill be sad to see it go after i upgrade, but it all in all not woth the money IMO.

I know some people are managing to get on well with ICS, but I tried countless resets to default etc and it was still slow and buggy. I'm sure the way ahead is rooting and custom roms, but for those not so inclined, GB is solid and quick. In the end my phone had its touchscreen repaired and as part of the service process it was reverted to GB, and it's great now. Quicker camera, faster GPS lock, actually responds when a call comes in, etc etc. It is also possible to do your own downgrade without unlocking bootloader/rooting, you just need flashtool and the GB rom image to use - but do at own risk, and you may find a few quirks (e.g. system apps going into crash loops) until you do a defaults.

This will save you from the headache. If it is GB 2.3.7 then kindly go for warranty. This phone works great on GB not ICS.
Phone is realy shit. It's very slow. Sometimes it is just blocking. Often you are not able to pick up, just because the slide switch does not appear on time. So you see you have a call, but you can not take it. And switching between the apps - good luck. It is realy realy bad. Just to check something in internet - take your time. Display is good.
Hi, i m using this phone since 1 year. i love this phone.Display clarity is awesome ,support high graphics games which is tremendous. Video clarity also awesome with Bravia engine which increase quality of images and Videos. Battery backup is enough for one day. i think this is a good valuable phone in such a cheap price.

I have used this phone for the past 4 months and can assure you from my experience that the phone is superb. The problem is don't upgrade the OS.
