Beautiful phone (everybody is mentioning the pink, people, the bottom bar is changeable, black phone comes with the pink and a black bar, the white phone comes with a yellow and a wahite bar). Good specs for it's price (259€), it's a downgrade of Xperia S/P, aiming younger buyers, so it's size is, in my opinion, the perfect one, and it's thickness does not bother me since in my opinion it's easier and safer do grab that way.
Now the cons, the battery could be a little better, and 4gb of usable memory??? Dafuq... That's really far too low nowadays. I was really considering buying Xperia U (when I tought it was 8gb), but when I saw 4gb and no SdCard support I got really sad, maybe Sony will consider this before they launch it oficialy, because if not, they better low it's price :s
shaanu, 28 Feb 2012what is the meaning of 16gb flash memory?? Is it like sky drive or what?? my music alone can easily take 16gb
That is right, only 4 Gb for the user. What a joke !!!
Again, the official web page: http://www.sonymobile.com/cws/corporate/products/phoneportfolio/specification/xperia-u
but now only 8GB of eMMC flash memory! And only 4GB is user-accessible memory. Means the other 4GB is for android os and system ??!
i think xperia ray is more stylish and fashionable!
and very important thing is: have micro sd slotL"
not just only 4gb internal memory!!!!!
love sony xperia u, and it has clear audio experience like walkman series ! Great ! Audio quality should be excellent guys, xperia u rocks !!!
don't worry, the bottom cover can be replaced easily, I think the real device is nice look than that pics, and I prefer this design than Ray (but Ray still awesome).
agree with Pyro! the avatar should be white or black

(from Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MultiMediaCard)
heyyyyy,,,, its 8Gb .!!!! check "watch?feature=player_embedded&v=YyA0-y33bjE#!" on youtube :)
4GB memory might suck but USB-OTG kinda makes up(but not completely). Plus, that is one of main reasons that this is priced so reasonably. Especially compared to HTC's One V.
upgrade the storage to 8gigs and this one's gonna sell like hotcakes at the price!
