i'm using it since last 4 days and i'm enjoying it but on back, it back cover gets heated but overall it is very nice phone it is my first android and i'm enjoying it,, i will definitely recommend this to everyone who are planning to buy this phone believe me it's awesome!!!!!!
This phones awesome... i love the way the transparent bar changes color ..I like sonys innovative ideas..and the camera is amazing..its a base phone but the pic quality is too good..i took a pic in a dark room and the pic was just awesome. n the plastic quality is top notch ..Im happy that i bought the Xperia U:)
I am new to Android smartphones. How many hours this mobile has to be charged after I buy the mobile? I mean, the first charge.
Also I read that mobile has to be switched off when charging for the first time. Please advise on the same.
Menu, back and home key are soft touch or press button type? What about SAR of this mobile? any one reply. thanks in advance.

Anuj, 22 May 2012Hello everyone... This of you wondering whether to go for Neo V or Htc One V or Xperia U, A... moreDoes it really matter about viewing angles?? Seriously who looks at their phones screen from the side?? Think you need to get out more. As for force closing that's down to apps not the phone
there is no memory card slot hard to understand this would have been killer mobile if it had a card slot sony have missed a trick .android platform needs a lot of memory apps games are very huge.and hd videos take alot if space
Wow, lots of lovers and haters of the Xperia U...
I'v heard that there have been compatibility problems in the past between the Sony's Timescape UI and Android, has this problem been fixed with the Xperia U?
Is the lagging just when watching HD movies? How about web browsing/running apps/sound quality?
Xperia U & USB OTG---
USB OTG - the next level of technology....
Recently, I had bought Xperia U and as known there is limited memory with no memory card slot...so I was missing the expansion of the memory...then I was through the user's opinion here in Gsmarena...and came to find out thru web friends (Sandeep & Sanj94) that there is a support for USB OTG in Xperia U....
I bought a cable and tried following things....and it worked fine... :-)
1) We can use pendrive/memory card readers etc... with Xperia U thru USB OTG cable...and now the limited memory problem is solved....
2) We can connect a USB mouse directly to phone thru USB OTG cable ...it works fine!!!...We can use mouse with phone - just for fun!!! left clicks selects an app...double click opens app...scroll works fine..scroll click opens (android) menu....right clicks makes us return to previous screen.
3) I am missing USB keyboard since I use a laptop...
but I have wireless mouse and keyboard....I had attached wireless transmitter to phone using USB OTG cable....and I was able to use mouse and keyboard with my phone....made my feel like I am using tiny computer.....computer keyboard made the input to phone much faster and easier.....I can use it for chatting, blogging, emailing...and guess what not!!
In future I think devices with USB OTG facility and alike phone are going to replace heavy computers CPUs from our homes....
Three cheers for USB OTG support!!!
AnonD-55240, 18 May 2012 here s the proof i contacted sony and they said tat xperia u wil support usb OTG facili... moreDear Sanj 94....thanks a ton man.....based on your comments....I got the USB OTG cable and ohh man my problem of limited memory is solved like breeze....and not only this but now I am able to connect several usb devices to my phone.....rock solid!!! Thanks man!!!
