Friens please dont buy this product. It is not at all worth for money. Though it is 3.5" display(diagnoally), for the same spec other manufacturers giving more display area(heightxwidth). In this phone the height is more and width is less which diagnollay gives more length. Bledy sony cheatting all their customer. So my personal suggestion to all is dont buy this product. I wasted my money 16k by buying this phone. Not at all worth for spending this money for small display area. I trusted sony and bought this mobile but now feel wasted my money.
Bk, 21 Sep 2012I used this handset from last 15 day's as per specification , I am not able to hear 3D sound.... moreFor me the sound quality is pretty awesome. I am using the headphone surround sound 'studio' effect. There is no hanging or lagging what so ever. Operation is smooth as silk :). May be you need to check your phone with the service center. Try removing additional applications if the RAM is used up all the time.

Turn off wi-fi, GPS, data, etc if they are turned on. Check to see what features use the battery power extensively. For me screen 35-40%, cell stand by 10-20% when idling, (if you live in a low signal area, the phone may be using higher signal power to connect with the tower). Backup and remove all custom installed live wallpapers as they drain the battery.

The L7 has a larger screen, but smaller resolution, I believe. The only downside to the Xperia U is that is is running 2.3, but since it's your first android, it probably wont matter much to you, and it's gonna get upgraded to 4.0 soon anyway.
Basically, the U is better than the L7 in every way.
i got finally Sony Xperia U, its lovely one,its design,size and weight.really i love Sony mobiles its fantastic.
but i found its get hot very rapidly and get hanging up almost of the time. i need to now this problem related to Xperia U only or included all Xperia series.
i hope find a solution to this problem.!!

Im planning to buy my first android phone, i need it basically for video calling using skype or viber to be in touch with my boyfriend. Which is better based on my demand, Xperia U or Lg Optimus L7?
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2012Can u plz tel me wats d backup u r getting???Depending on usage, between 2 and 3 days usually. That's on strong 2G (because 3G is borderline so drinks battery as explained elsewhere) with wi-fi and GPS enabled. If I watched films all day or something, it would be much lower, but this seems typical patterns for a small phone without much storage.
bala, 20 Sep 2012It is showing the Ram as only 290MB. Any specific reason?
And one more issue i faced is, batt... moreThere are various ways the RAM can be measured, and different numbers result. There is 512MB fitted, but some of this is reserved for hardware such as the high resolution display, and the Android system itself reserves a chunk for itself to ensure basic functionality.
e.g. Running services says: 190 + 120 = 310MB whereas Quadrant Standard reports: 376MB.
P.S. Don't worry about free memory being very low, since Android is based on Linux, it features Linux's very efficient memory management which keeps things in memory even when not in use, to maximise performance. If you run "cat /proc/meminfo" on a command prompt with e.g. Terminal Emulator, there will be a considerable amount of inactive and cached memory, that can essentially be added to that free.

Bk, 21 Sep 2012Guys I have doubt , In the specifiaction it shows 6GB memory for users . But after using 4Gb m... moreThe 6GB user memory is split into two chunks: 4GB which you have full USB access to, and 2GB for phone storage including many applications. Applications can also usually be stored in the 4GB part, but not always.
