Jay, 01 Mar 2014updated to 4.3 jelly bean.The battery problem and heat up problem will solve.:)I've already got it updated to 4.3 via SONY's authorised service centre. Heat up problem has only increased after that.
AnonD-115547, 28 Feb 2014After using it for over 2 months now, I'm here with its pros and cons.. PROS: 1. Great mov... moreupdated to 4.3 jelly bean.The battery problem and heat up problem will solve.:)
After using it for over 2 months now, I'm here with its pros and cons..
1. Great movie watching experience due to its clear audio feature for audio and mobile Bravia engine for video. Full HD Video playback is hassle free. Thanks to its 1.5 GHz quad core processor.
2. Quality of HD and Full HD video recording is quite good. Features like video stabilisation make it even better.
3. Good sunlight legibility. Viewing under bright sunlight is not a problem.
4. Great multitasking capabilities. The credit goes to its 2 GB RAM.
1. Heating problem... The temperature goes even beyond 50 degree Celsius at times when its cores are put to task.
2. Its display goes blank sometimes and then you have to wait for it to come back on its own as you have no other option because of its non-removable battery.
3. Still camera image capture is not upto the mark. There's lot of noise and graininess in still images.
4. Battery backup is quite low. It lasts merely for 8-9 hours with about half an hour each of phone calls, music listening, video playback, and an hour each of web browsing and light gaming.
Now something that I would neither like to keep in pros and nor in cons.. It's just thatthat these things could have been better for this price range.
1. Viewing angles could have been much better. It feels especially while playing games like Temple Run, Rail Rush etc.
2. Despite great benchmark scores, its gaming performance is not upto the mark. Games like Subway Surfers and RipTide, etc run better in phones that are half-priced in comparison (like Micromax Canvas HD)..
3. Music quality, though good, could have been much better, as expectations from a brand like SONY are quite high when it comes to music. Nowadays, Samsung phones are offering a better music listening experience.

Should I go for this?? I have heard good reviews about this and equally bad ones. Please help!!
I love this phone.It has really narrow bezels which makes it much more compact to hold than Galaxy S4 and HTC One.And about processor well I managed to overclock it safely to 2Ghz using Doom kernel so it runs faster now.
