I have Xperia V last March 16, 2013. I had SOD last March 22, 2013 I called Xperia Hotline then told me to uninstall the Update Service in my PC then reinstall it again then reinstall the SW to my phone. After 2 weeks the SOD happened again now my phone is really hot. I called them again then they told me to just wait for the next update and this is pure SW issue. You may check this problem on talk.sonymobile.com I also have post there and updates. BTW I'm from the Philippines. All regions experience this SOD bug but with a small percentage.
SHRUÐE, 03 Apr 2013Great phone. Dont worry about battery life. While it is new you will be playing with all the f... morehey where did you bought this mobile.. i think still it didnot hit the market rite..?
Which one is best between xperia v and x acro s in terms of music, camera and battery, plus i know the x v is also water resistant, due 2 the fact that you can open the back, can water go in?
Great phone. Dont worry about battery life. While it is new you will be playing with all the features hence battery life seems low. I bought Higher capacity battery on Ebay, cheap, so i always have a couple spare and fully charged.
Great camera, excellent photos, better than a friends iPhone 5.
Nice to know it is waterproof as well.
I looked at many phones before settling on this one. HTC, Samsung, etc I tried to avoid a large phone but couldnt. This had the best camera and chip.
I luv this phone, but the battery is sucks!
drain so fast, otherwise is good

Synonymous, 30 Mar 2013Yes, its true. But not just on XperiaV but all (if not, most of) android devices running v4.0 ... moreHey thanks for your reply! :) I am using ICS on the Xperia Ray. N I can move some parts of the application to the SD coz I have the "Move to SD card" option...

Will be compatible battery BA900 (1900mAh) with this phone? Thx for reply.
Decide to buy this one after a really deep thought.first you all must be insane to pass this masterpiece.sound is great if you combine the phone with Bluetooth like Sony MDR 1 you can even asked more tweak to the sound.display is awesome yes it bit below amoled but still great.the camera is OK it need a bit tweak here and there to get best picture.a sleek body.and yes it is true v owner have to compromise with battery.this one is a beauty and it throw black color more crisp than z.I really glad I got this one
why worry about battery life when you can carry along your charger or buy your self a soler battry charger.
Mel, 28 Mar 2013I've read some of the comments here that say that applications cant be moved to the SD card.
... moreYes, its true. But not just on XperiaV but all (if not, most of) android devices running v4.0 (ICS) and up. If you want to move your apps & games on the microSD, you have to root it.
P.S. I guess you're still on Gingerbread. :-P
Xperia V full battery only last up to 6hrs for heavy users. With games, wifi, movies, messaging/calls, etc. (brightness is set to 1/4). I hope Sony make at least 2300mAh for this phone cause this is a LTE phone & 4.3" screen.
But overall performance it was great! I love it.
The display is sharp/clear, fast UI, fast Mobile Data even just HSPA+ (cause we don't have yet LTE in our area), great for watching 1080p movies, thanks to Bravia Engine 2. To those who cannot afford xperia Z, this is the best phone for you!
Check out guys , Why did Sony changes that Sony Xperia V will come with Jelly Bean...
Is there will be any re-release ,That preinstalled with Jelly bean
