I bought it two days ago. The phone is absolutely brilliant. I previously owned an LG Optimus GT540 and SE X10 mini. It's incredibly well designed, it looks beautiful and it's an average weight. Performance is brilliant -- incredibly swift and highly responsive. The system itself looks beautifuly polished, and the display is crisp and is on par with the iPhone 4. The battery lasts a day, maybe a day and a half at it's best ( I wouldn't know, really). The "no memory slot" issue is not much of an issue to me as the highest capacity I ever owned was 4 GB. To make it clear, You have 4 GB of space for your media plus 2 GB for the apps. The 4 GB of internal memory emulate an SD card, even though there is none. Camera works great, the "one second picture taking when the phone is locked" works as advertised. The pics look beautiful with the Bravia Engine. Games run fast, browsing is really comfortable. Call quality is excellent, the sound is satisfying. There, I think this is enough for now.
an excellent phone..the display being superb makes u luk at it all and again...specs are good and the limited space makes u think of alternatives sometimes..but dats something u can get in this price & u should be satisfied with it..
d only prblm I'm facing is its signal reception...as soon as I enter a roaming location or some low network area, the "No service" thing comes up and the signal is lost...it regains only if the phone is rebooted..is anyone else facing dis problm..kindly post sm solution if any...
an excellent phone...loving my first droid!
the display of any phone is something u r going to look at it all d time..and its totally superb here with 280 ppi..just godly feeling holding the phone!
d only problem I'm experiencing is the network signal...it goes off as soon i enter a roaming location or a low network area, and does nt turn up with the signal even though the network is full..the phone has to be rebooted to regain the signal...is anyone else having dis problem..kindly help me with the solution if any..
Nilesh, 04 Jun 2012which is better xperia u or desire s both price is same now.desire s is also a good phone
when compared to xperia u
it has following
bigger screen 3.7"
more ram 768mb
sd card slot
bt xperia u has
dual core processor
better gpu ( mali 400 vs adreno 205)
better pixel density ( sharper n better display)
so if 512mb of ram and 6gb of storage is sufficient for u
go for xperia u
mind u both can run android 4.0
besides xperia u is better looking woth transparent element lighting
but desire s has sense ui which is better than timescape
breakup with ericsson is big loss for sony because sony nxt series is very bad series phones and all xperia phones sucks
Hai xperia u user's
Please tell about the battery status of xperia u...
please tell it clearly..
sanket pandey, 04 Jun 2012there is absolutely no problem in the loud speaker the only problem is that the loudspeaker i... moresuperbbbbbbbbbb ......phone..am completely agreed to sanket........u r r8 wat u said abt xperia u...really gud phone for dis price...only one negative no memory card slot and no high sound...wen we listen music....bt i had a pbm on my phone loud speaker was not working aftdat i reset my settings aftdat it cleared....
there is absolutely no problem in the loud speaker
the only problem is that the loudspeaker is on the back side of phone
so when u keep it on soft surfaces ( bed or sofa) the loudspeaker gets covered
yes its still audible but only if u r adjacent to the phone
so I have practicised keeping my phone upside down( I have the screen protector) when I leave it
6 gb memory is sufficient for me
excellent display ( way better than iphone 3gs)
superb processing owing to dual core
512mb ram is sufficient who says its not sufficient
superb touch screen response
battery is good by far ( yes u need to charge it everyday)
transparent element light can be turned off using an app named screen filter ( m using it)
real cons of this phone -
keyboard in portrait mode is difficult to type ( I still make mistakes after 8 days of purchasing)
sometimes u may feel conservative due to limited storage :-p
those who are thinking to buy this phone., go for it., u wont regret ur decision
those who find so many weakness in this phone
keep finding more coz u dun have one xperia u to fiddle wid so are kinda free to find more
this phone is worth having
5 stars to Sony
zamid, 04 Jun 2012no i am not dumb, i think you are. people are complaining that they cant hear the ringtone whe... moreactualy i own the device myself...
and the speaker IS loud enough to here for ringing..
and i know its not that bad because i also have a htc one v and a samsung galaxy 3, and the xperia and the one v are about the same in volume. my galaxy 3 being louder at the cost of the sound distorting.
like i said it isnt the loudest, but still loud enough.
and yes i have read all the forum posts on most websites.
In specifications sar EU (head) is 1.62??? In card on the box sar is 1.26. What is the realy sar about this phone?
if u r thinking to buy this phone plz don't buy it...
u can also see samsung galaxy ace plus it is a good phone
Anonymous, 04 Jun 2012Good phone worth it...:)Not a good phone, not worth it. 8GB with no SD card is too small. And 512MB RAM is barely enough. Sony Ericsson knew how to make good phones (I own Xperia Arc S), but Sony doesn't. Only Sony phone with a potential is Sony Xperia Acro S.
BinKo, 28 May 2012No memory card, only 4Gb user available memory, less than average camera and video...Here in T... moreyou're the one whos crazy then if youre gonna buy this for an 11 year old girl just because of the pink bottom cap!!
This is a mind blowing mobile....only drawback is,dont have expandable memory.
i bought yesterday xperia u 12,590 pesos at sm north cyberzone. so far it works good i never experienced lag, the sound is superb especially when it is connected to my computer speakers, clear videos (downloads), responsive touch screen. i have no idea why other people say that they cant hear its ringtone??? coz i can hear mine!!! downside: doesnt have memory card slot, battery is weak (i have to recharge the phone evry 2 days). if you are into tons of mp3s, app games and movies buy the higher xperia model coz this phone has only 4gb internal memory. p.s. at the back of the phone remove the plastic cover on its camera to get a better picture. i have read a lot of complains that they get unwanted color or white balance on their pictures. overall i'm satisfied and happy on my xperia u.
