I love this phone, one of the best I've had so far.
I purchased about 1 month ago and I'm very satisfied.
- Neat camera with a very good resolution
- I love the design and quality built, it doesn't feel cheap in your hands. Also the size is perfect, not as big as a Galaxy s3 and not as small as an iPhone.
- Very decent specs (processor and RAM), very fast, never lags and you can have many apps open with no crashes.
- Water resistent! what a big plus.
- Awesome screen resolution, it has the same resolution of other bigger screens phones in the market.
- Very good price for the qualit and specs.
- Great sound quality
- Screen view-angles are not perfect
- Battery life is not as good as Samsung/Apple phones (but it's ok for me)
- Screen brightness is not very good in daylight/outdoors.
- I don't like very much the android skin design of Xperia, but I solved it installing Nova launcher and some beautiful skins.
Xperia V is a middle-end smarthphone with really good specs and design, that easily beats iPhone 5 for a much more friendly price, and it's a perfect on-the-go solution for photography aficionados and pros.
marthin, 29 Oct 2013is it okay to remove the shutter film?you'll compromise the survivability of the phone's screen on accidental drops.
Rooting in six steps:
1)In your phone enable "USB DEBUGGING" from (Menu\Settings\Applications\Development)and enable "UNKNOWN SOURCES" from (Menu\Settings\Applications)
2)connect USB cable to PHONE and then connect to PC
3)Download DooMLoRD_Easy-Rooting-Toolkit_v17_perf-event-exploit.zip from http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2366579
4) extract it completely using winzip/winrar,
go to the folder where its extracted and execute "RUNME.bat"
5)Press any key
6)The xperia V Smartphone will be rebooted and you will have it rooted
Why are you always complaining about battery?

Do you seriously want me to answer in behalf of the admin? LOL. Back read again dear, i didn't call you a fool. I just told you not to make a fool out of yourself here. I was stopping you actually to become one. :D..
OMG!it wasn't me, its shinitz. Why take it against me when its wasn't me who claimed that V can play 20hours straight HD Games?? I am not willing to take responsible for the things i never posted. And fyi,i never mentioned anything about the battery in my first post.
Ok what xperia phone specifically?
Well based on my experience, as a certified xperia V user and not just someone who cherry-picked information from any website, i can honestly tell you that this phone is great for its price range. I didn't experience SOD and overheating. Yes admittedly battery is not that great but definitely its not as bad as you assumed. Ok for argument sake, lets say i got a faulty sony xperia phone, then why in the world would i defend it? Where's the logic? Would you defend someone or something that ruined your trust? It doesn't make sense at all. LOL. And sorry to disappoint you dear but i got the best one. Thanks Sony!
I used only 17 days my new xperia v, but when I power on with sim card it shows "emergency call only" after trying again and again(switch on and off) then got network but other phone all time got full network .
Whats the problem?????????????
