M.G, 23 Aug 2012now you have started speaking nonsense!!! when did I say Sony does not produce decent phone??... moreIt has a better walkman player than live. So with sense me and graphic eq clear bass you expect sound to be good. I said I wasafter replacement for lww and xu is the same price new as lww was. Look on lww blog and you will see nothing but satisfaction. In xperia u review it even says that ics needs to be released soon after launch for u to be a success. If xu gets all problems fixed then I would consider it. Have you ever tryed taking a phone back to a shop that youre not happy with? It aint easy. Hope sony doesnt give xu dodgy buggy laggy ics software like they have done 2011 range. Gingerbread live is awsome but ics live is annoyingly slow. Gingerbread xu is good phone if you get one without any faults. I would get sola if they did it in uk because of micro sd. Love my gaming and I cant believe people are saying hd games lag on xu. Why did sony put such a nice screen on xu that makes hd games look awsome and not put sd slot in so people can take full advantage? Does the screen res and bravia drain the processor? Maybe I should go for xperia p? It doesn't look as nice as u though. If galaxy s2 had a sony sticker on I would save up for that. Quad core monsters dont bother me as I want a phone I can put in my pocket. All the things ive said about xu have come off this blog not from user experience so I do apologise if ive got anything wrong.
XU is good :)
- Problem with pink spot for newer product of xperia is none (solved)
- Sound quality is the best one, small sound can be handle with 3rd party software (solved)
- GPS will easyly solved if you rooted your phone and edit some GPS files, and also you have the best internet connection (in my country 3G 3,6 full speed) lock in less than 15 sc. Offline map is very usefull when u have a bad internet connection
- Wifi can easyly connect if u have Wifi manager
- everything good in my XU
hope so far so good also in the future :)
it s the best phone at this range in features and look. but it having less storage. my friend told that it s having pen drive option. is it true..?
james79, 23 Aug 2012So you're saying that to get a decent phone I need to spend three times the price of xperia u?... morenow you have started speaking nonsense!!!
when did I say Sony does not produce decent phone??? I have always been a Sony user and they provide good phones in every price range!!!
now coming back to XU, its surely the best phone in the price range.. so beside complaining we should also consider this!!!
and u shouldn't have compared XU's sound quality with a walkman phone!! its hard to match it up.. (but it should have been a bit better)!
the software provided is just great.. everyone knows this!!
but hardware provided could have been better... they could have increased the price of phone by 40$-50$ and provided better hardware to match quality of a dual-core phone!!
but still its not that bad how much you are complaining... coz at this range you will have to manage this!!!!
Overall the phone seems okay compared with the price tag, however the sound quality is a bit on low end but one can live on it.
They big issue however is the camera, which shows a pink spot on all the pictures. I am not sure if this is the issue with my phone only or it is a manufacture issue. This spot can been easily if you take a closeup picture of anything, in particular with a light background color. Please share your feedback of this issue.

M.G, 22 Aug 2012I think you are complaining toooo much and your type of people can't get satisfied at all!!! s... moreSo you're saying that to get a decent phone I need to spend three times the price of xperia u? Sony doesnt do a phone that expensive so your saying sony doesnt do decent phones? Think what you're saying daft man!
M.G, 22 Aug 2012I think you are complaining toooo much and your type of people can't get satisfied at all!!! s... moreI have live walkman that im totally satisfied with. Just its damaged and we cant get it no more in uk. So I need a replacement and xperia u falls into same price range. Surely when buying a phone you expect it to work properly. Live walkman raised the standard in this price range so yes I do expect at least the same and xperia u doesnt meet the same high standard. Poor sound output- poor multitask poor memory and people saying it has problems on gingerbread so how will it handle ics? Thats when it finally gets it! Had ics since june on live! Whats the point in dual core with poor multitask? Some people like me cant afford 3 times the price of xperia u.
Maddy, 22 Aug 2012hi All i got this phone one month back can any one tell how to connect with my pc as i am u... moreGo to the settings and put ur phone in mass storage mode ( like USB flash ) and ur comp will see it like USB flash.U can copy and paste what ever u want.C U
Maddy, 22 Aug 2012hi All i got this phone one month back can any one tell how to connect with my pc as i am u... moreIf you use Windows, it SHOULD invite you to install PC Companion when you plug it in. However for a simple connection to e.g. transfer music or photos, that's not necessary. All you need is to install Windows Media Player 11 or higher, and the MTP drivers (sorry, no USB mass storage available on Xperia U) will be available. It can sometimes take up to a couple of minutes to recognise the phone is plugged in, but usually it's seconds. You will be able to access the main 4GB media flash.
i got this phone one month back can any one tell how to connect with my pc as i am unable to connect it so many times always it shows not connected. Please help me thanks in advance

can we use samsung USB Connector ET-R205UBEGINU for xperia U for USB-OTG support so that pendrives can be inserted into it and can njoy viewing media(videos,photos,etc) on sony xperia U?
Link of samsung usb connector: https://www.samsungindiaestore.com/products/ProductDetails?X00O000V1764UtGkkXXX10O14Z872395030agsft5f6dhdj557jkslf3627fhd3g3gh34dsrie378037hU7hu9pppTYNjfflRnmk3g==BxJIIIIX987fs62h0yr9df4g380ty0tt32r45en674Oty00ui0
Buy this phone only if you can compromise on WiFi. WiFi is pathetic, it keeps on showing connecting..disconnection. I have to reset my WiFi every time I need to connect.
I have been using Xperia U from the past 2 weeks and I can say that this is the best phone one can get at this price.
-Excellent Display - with 280 ppi this phone has the best display you can get at this price. Documents and webpages are crisp and clear.
-Compact - with a 3.5 inch screen this phone is very compact and just slips into your pocket comfortably
-Sound - audio quality through ear phones is excellent
-Battery - Very good battery life considering it is a smartphone
-Camera - Excellent pics in good lighting conditions
-looks- NXT design and no other words,the best looking phone in this price range
-1GHz dual core processor, 512MB ram are enough for the phone to run without any lags
-speakers not up to the mark even though the quality
of sound is good
-low light performance of the camera is not good
And coming to the memory issue you get a 4GB user accessible memory for your media files and 2GB for apps and it is more than enough for me. You can always get a USB OTG cable and connect a pen drive if you feel the memory is not enough.
So I recommend everyone to buy this phone because you can't get a better phone at this price.
