i had this phone for 3-4 years now.its not laggy at all, but the battery is draining quite fast even on stamina mode. now im thinking about changing the battery to 3000 mah or above.
Had this phone for 3 years now. Battery won't last 12 hours even on Stamina Mode. Ear phone port/jack stopped working after a month(not exaggerating). Got to use it once before malfunctioning. Camera is quite poor. Apps aren't even supported by Sony or Android anymore. Might take you a handful of times to swipe just to unlock the phone. I don't use my phone for media storage, I don't take many pictures or videos, and I don't put music on it yet the memory storage was full after a couple of months. It's the first and last Sony phone. Reading through the people praising this phone was stomach-churning. Sony's shills are very active on the web.
Utter crap phone born with Ghost-touch that neither Sony nor reseller would acknowledge despite sending video-recording of it. Sony used to be quality. Looking for other brands now.
I hated this phone. I was happy that it got defect after one year. ;-) So my parents bought a new one for me.
I had it from 2016 to 2017.
The sound was very poor, this was the main reason, why I hated this phone. It didn't look good optically, but this would'nt have been a big problem to me, if the sound had been great.
The highs were very bad and the dynamic normalizer didn't work that well as it did on older sony phones. Louder songs still were much louder (I had dynamic normalizer on) than quiet songs, it should have been nearly the same noice level.
After one year the on/off button got stuck inside the phone. I couldn't turn the screen on or off anymore. - And because I didn't like the phone either, we looked for a new one.
One of the worst phones i got, the specs were good, but the disply got burn spot, then i changed it, and it did it again, now its on 3rd diplay. Not using it for 2 years now
is the back of the phone is soft touch plastic material or hard touch plastic.?
this was such a nice little phone. I got it for my wife and she loved it. it stood out because of it's sleek design. it lasted her 2 years no problem.
It's quite durable. Mine lasted for 3 years. Though the camera is not that high-end but I managed to take good photos. I didn't like the short-lived battery and low storage capacity. Good enough for me.
Well, good phone (in my opinion). Fast, compact and better than my last phone (Huawei honor 7s). But screen is really weak :(. 8/10
Dropped out of the pocket while on toilet fell roughly 8cm and the screen shattered definetly not durable enough
My 3 year old Xperia F 3115 model disconnects from my WiFi even though settings shows it is connected. Bluetooth also disconnects in my car and will not respond. Solution to each problem is to restart, then it connects perfectly, until I move to another room and back and it once again refuses to reconnect.
Does anyone have a solution?
Have had a few sony xperias and found they all had problems with the charging port and have had to have it replaced. Current one is 3 1/2 years old and has had it replaced once and has broken again and needs replacing again at $125.00
Otherwise I liked the phones, just the charging port issues.
801, 28 Dec 2019Should I buy Xperia Z or Xperia XA????Stay away from low-mid end Sony phones, those are very unreliable and prone to malfunction, the XA have this non responsive screen problem. If you want a Sony phone i recommend a high end one like the XZ2-3 or the Compact series.
I have also the same model since 2016, it is really a good phone. it has good features, good performance, no face any issue yet, yes battery backup is little low, but no issue for me. Comfortable in hands. I like its pre-installed apps. Such a friendly phone. If you like many apps then you can quit otherwise best phone.
