I bought xperia u a week ago and I'm very satisfied. The 2 core CPU allows it to work quickly and it doesn't lag. Video and camera quality are superb. The music player is very good and the sound quality great. There's only an issue with its storage space. I haven't understood if it is possible to expand it.
4 gb is enough for normal user like me. this phone is realy awosme as i am using it.
it is the best phone in the price range of about 16,000.guys don't worry that the internal memory is low,wake up guys it has the usb otg feature via which u can use 8gb or 16gb pen drive in just seconds...
guys this is the nxt smartphone from sony which is powerful as samsung galaxy r or probably more than that...
It looks good at the beginning until I used it for about a week and discovered all the bugs like:
1.getting blank and hanging for without reason and I had to force shutoff or take out the battery!
2.encrypted pictures that you cannot delete..I did not even took those pics.
3.contacts in the sim card that I cannot transfer to phone memory..it always says "no stored contacts in the sim" and even when I used the sony companion it still cannot detect the contacts from the computer or from the other phones.
4.not having its own file manager/explorer though of course you can download from the playstore
5. homepages that I cannot delete! I only want 2 homepages..it has 5.
6. and lastly, it slipped on my hand, landed on the floor and boom! it has the crack at the corner just after 3 days after buying.
I think Samsung costs higher for a reason.
what is this at some sites the camera of this phone is 8mp but at this site it is only5mp
Well, I can do many things here, I put music, games, applications, etc.Yes, honestly I prevent to save video in this phone. but it supports OTG, I hope you understand what it means. 6 GB (2 apps + 4 user accessible) is not a problem for me. also the price..
What is the use of this phone? same question to you, what the use of you? depends on the user, doesnt it?

sam, 28 Jun 2012hey guys plz help me!!!! i hav a budget of rs. 15000-19000 n m looking for an android phone...... moreHi Sam! I am also doing research in similar budget phones few last few days. The phones I short listed were Ace II, Xperia U and One V. I rejected One V as it has very negative reviews. Poor battery, continuous hangs, poor after sales service from HTC. Now comparing Ace II and Xperia U. Ace II is a trusted phone and has been in the market for a long time now. People who are using it are pretty much satisfied. On the other hand I will personally chose Xperia U. The reason I say is both are running on Android (Sony will also get update of ICS very soon), so they both are on the same track. Now lets compare the hardware of Sony vs Samsung, thats where I rate U above Ace II. Be it HDMI screen, sound or camera, Samsung can not beat Sony. Sony is known for all this since we were born. So my recommendation is go for Xperia U. And if you want to play very safe then Ace II is the choice.
can you tell me whats the total phone storage capacity is . is it entirely 4 gb. or its gonna be used by the the internal memory of the phone too
sam, 28 Jun 2012hey guys plz help me!!!! i hav a budget of rs. 15000-19000 n m looking for an android phone...... moreif u need front camera go 4 xperia u, if u need sd card slot go 4 sola. Dont prefer samsung.
ViTALiTY, 29 Jun 2012Hey Guys...I need to know that , does it have only 4Gb memory for total use? or there is anoth... moreThis must be about the most frequently asked and answered question here :)
2GB for apps and SMS etc, 4GB for media (mp3, images etc) and compatible apps*, 2GB for Android system.
* That's to say, apps that are allowed to run from external memory, equivalent of SD card on other phones
