Mine's gone back to be repaired today. The dreaded touchscreen failure. Tried with both Gingerbread and ICS, I really hoped it was a software issue but it pretty clearly wasn't. Love the phone, truly hope it comes back with a new lease of life, but having to tap several times to get any response and certain areas of the screen completely non-functional wasn't helpful.

Amit, 03 Nov 2013Thanks for ur reply.
U have mentioned 4.0.3 android version. Means U have 4.0.3 ICS versio... moreyou should'nt update your phone, as i have used ICS for like a month and it made experia U quite a slow phone,mostly it freezes during incoming calls, and phone lags alot! even in basic applications such as messaging,then i asked sony customer people to again update my phone and when i got my phone back it had gingerbread AOS, and that really made me happy as this works best with gingerbread, so be happy with it, else it would be too hard to use phone.
I have been using this phone for a year now. It came with android gingerbread and I had a really nice experience with it. Highended games like Most wanted and fifa13 worked smoothly with absolutely no lag. Yes the screen size is a bit small and the video quality is also not that good. But dual core processor is an advantage which would compensate the above flaws for gamers like me. Well I upgraded it to 4.0.4 a couple of weaks back and now the phone lags even while opening contacts. Only advantage is that battery management is excellent. I would advice all the users of xperia U not to upgrade the phone and carry on with gingerbread.

U have mentioned 4.0.3 android version. Means U have 4.0.3 ICS version in ur Xperia-U? Which version is better. I m using this phone since last one year on gingerbread and not facing any issue. I went in somy shop they told me that ICS 4.0 version is better. Now I m little bit confused between 4.0 and 4.0.3. Please clarify.
Wish u Happy Diwali.

NSM, 30 Oct 2013Please do not buy this phone. The battery does not last for even a day and the software update... moreBut Xperia U has removable battery....also after the ICS update, ITs battery lasts upto 14/1 hours with mobile data on... The best way is to carry a portable charger...
slayer11, 31 Oct 2013Go for xperia P or M they are way bettter than this ! i agree with you on going on buying Xperia P....but xperia m??umm...NO..user accesible internal memory is only 1.74GB....which means...you wont be able to play great games like NFS most wanted or The dark knight Rises,etc. even though it has a memory card slot..Xperia U has OTG
mixa, 01 Nov 2013Android 4.4 KitKat update coming to XU soon.Gratz.funny :-D Sony can't even give proper ics for this phone. how they gonna give kit Kat?
