I am telling the truth here.i've been using this phone for awhile and i really like it...the front camera is not good..so if ur like a selfie lover it wud not work well..but the camera in the back is good..u could take a few colored pictures with good quality and use some photo editor available in google playstore to get that finishing touch u want(thats what i do)...u can download songs and the apps work well.i really like this phone and would recommend it IF this phone is NOT intended only for selfies..and it also came with this app called file commander which had made my life easier..if u are planning to buy a phone go thru gsmarena or techradar for specs..watch youtube videos and have an idea about it and go to the store and inspect it..if u lIke it after that u buy it...i spent the money i collected for some years on this..and it was necessary i spent this hard earned money on a phone that fit my expectations every way possible..i got everything i wanted in a phone from SONY xperia V(except the selfie cam-front cam)...i hope to use it untill it wears out and the best thing is..no matter how many times i've dropped it the screen didnt break plus i but a silicon hard case to it the day i brought it and it makes it all comfortable to hold the ultra flat phone(cuz of the cover its plumped up like an iphone).so what i say is before u buy a phone(unless you are filthy rich) to make a list of all the thingz you look in a phone..then search online..and when u find the one you want inquire from your friends or a tech-geekish-friend how that phone would work for you..you see BIG phones are yes,good for showing off but harder to hold and do evrything with one hand..for anyone who wants to buy a phone i RECOMMEND SONY XPERIA V.Thank you..and i SWEAR i'm not lying...infact i wrote this thru my xperia V:)..Goodluck in finding a phone that fits ur tastes and ur pockets.:)
Had major issues with signal strength and "sleep of death" syndrome on this phone. I guess I just got a dud handset but I don't know if I will ever go Sony again.
Anonymous, 17 Jun 2015hi guys last year i got the sony xperia v lt25i, great phone. my problem is that a month back... morepullout the battery and then back again then charge it, after 1 minute turn on the phone
Mine almost 3 years old now. and i love to take picture underwater, so after a while i get watermark on 3 corners of the LCD but its working just fine. The only issue i got is the phone running a bit slow now.

how can i resolve this,id love 2 continue using my phone.
Had this phone for two years now and it's solid, only has a small 1700+mah battery but it lasts for a long time on standby (2days with only few short calls a day) Still using the battery that came with it, tread your things right and they will last (unless you where unlucky and got a faulty unit) It charges really fast with the charger it came with. Many times at 1% in the morning and charge it for 10 min and it holds out the day, 40 min and it's at 100%. Dropped the phone few times now and nothing broke, one minor scratch on screen witch is amazing due to the fact that I never had on it any kind of protection nether a case. It does heat up a bit after long usage but would't say its overheating. Maybe I got really lucky with the unit at least it keeps impressing my how fast it charges and how little it uses. The screen is a total overkill but obviously nothing to complain about

Hoax. Overheating problem. Mobile data got damaged. Front camera is VGA. Low quality battery.
keep away from Sony.
I have send my phone for repairs to Vodacom for its charging port is damaged. They return it to me and said its behond repairs. Is it possible?
Had the phone for about 6 months - really liked it. But apparently 1 month ago the battery just exploded inside for no apparent reason. I was aware that the phone itself was water-proof but I have never tested that ability so the battery wasn't wet nor did it overheat. But the funniest thing in this story that Sony support told me that it was users fault for exploding batteries (phone still had a warranty on it). So no SONY product for me anymore ever :).
Anonymous, 19 Feb 2015thanks for saying the truth about the battery This problema has an easy solution. Just buy another battery and take it in your wallet. I am used to it and i forgot all problems. To open the case you can use a credit card
