Anonymous, 16 Jul 2012I wish if there was someone who experienced this phone and told us everything about issues wit... moreMan first of all keep in mind that its a mid range phone. so keep your expectations level at optimum. Let me try to clarify your confusion. In my view Xperia U is one of the best mid range phone in this range. Its main features that I considered while buying this phone are:
1. Dual Core processor
2. Front facing camera (in addition to the conventional back camera of 5MP)
3. 512 MB RAM (enough to avoid irritating lags for a mid range phone)
4. Good screen resolution (again in mid range)
5. Good looks (looks sophisticated)
Lets compare it with the competition. HTC One V has single core processor and does not come with front facing camera and that is also bit costly. Galaxy Ace 2 is good but again costlier and old fashioned. Xperia Ray is old and smaller. Neo V has very limited internal storage. Arc S does not have a front facing cam.
Now some drawbacks of this phone are:
1. the screen is not as wide as other 3.5" screens available in the market (e.g. Iphone, Galaxy Ace)
2. Somewhat Limited internal storage (Well for me 4Gb is enough though)
3. Battery backup is not long enough (you can cater to that upto some extent by keeping GPS, Wifi, Bluetooth off while not needed. Further Live wallpapers also drain battery faster)
Rest depends upon personal preference. Brands and priority for individual features.
pls. reply me about battery problem ... it wont last a day it drained to fast! even though i adjust screen display/wifi, even on standby mode.? pls. any idea? tnx. firstname.lastname@example.org

I wish if there was someone who experienced this phone and told us everything about issues with this phone.
I don't know what to believe. One says the phone is perfect, another says the phone is just a crab.
One says there are not many issues with this phone(just a few minor ones), another says there are a lot of issues(with signal, camera, photos, upgrading it to android 4, etc.)
Please someone with enough knowledge about smartphones and of course, experienced this phone tell me(and everyone else) about the phone issues, phone speed(games, etc) to avoid confusing people.
Thanks in advance for your great help.

Hey guys. Anybody tested HD games on this phone?
(I mean HD games around 1GB size). If you've tested HD games on this phone, please answer the following Questions:
1)Isn't there any problem with this abnormal screen resolution?(since I've only seen 800×480 not 854×480)
Does in require individual games or it supports all games which require Mali-400MP GPU?
2)How about speed? Does it run games on OK FPS(frames per sec)?
Thanks in advance.
Hey guys. I know this question is a bit crazy but, anybody can tell me that if it's possible to store games data on a Flash Memory instead of phone internal memory using USB On-the-go?(I mean for playing games not just storing it!). 'cause most of HD games require about 1GB free space and it's too much for this phone.
Thanks in advance folks!
