5.0 out of 5 stars Great little device!, July 20, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a full fledged computer! Before criticizing it, I think you should understand what it is, and how to use it the best way possible. For instance, don't expect to run Vmware Vcenter or Microsoft Exchange on this! The purpose of this little wonder is to make highly portable PC that can handle *average* usage for non techy/non heavy users. It is more than sufficient as a TV PC for browsing the web, streaming Netflix/Hulu/Amazon, watching family photos/videos etc. It barely uses any power at all. Therefore can be plugged in 24/7.

5.0 out of 5 stars pretty darn good phone!, November 28, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I want to start by saying, please pay attention to the reviews from people who actually bought the device, look for "verified purchase" sign!

This is a fantastic phone for the price. Points to note below:

- factory unlocked
- tons of LTE bands
- pretty decent camera

Not having Google Play store is not a bad thing. You don't hear complaints about Google Play store being missing on iphone review. Do you? Why can't people accept this fact that this is a phone made by Amazon and Amazon is providing you a marketplace for apps? Amazon Fire phone isn't "just another Android" handset made by htc|samsung|motorola|LG etc. So whining about Google Play store is pretty immature.

1.0 out of 5 stars awful performance / possibly fake, February 4, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Mine was indicating class 10, I should have been suspicious. Writing speed is terrible, devices do not even recognize this card properly. I have nothing but problems. I bought two of these and wasted 34 dollars. As many reviewers already mentioned, there are tons of fake cards everywhere. So just be aware if price is too good to be true and buy from a reputable seller.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty decent, could be better., January 16, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Italian Recipes from Italyum (App)
Few areas need improvement. I'd prefer some more pictures, but then again app size would be increased. I suppose it's okay now. Layout could be improved a little bit. Overall I can't really complain about a pretty decent free app.

Lastly, one word about Adobe AIR requirement, trust me, it's of no concern. AIR is a good plugin to have anyway as many other Android apps utilize it. So really pay no attention to the fuss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Freedom and customization of Android, November 9, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm a tech geek and have used many mobiles over the years. I've used Palm, Blackberry, WinMobile, Webos, Ios, Meego, WP7 and Android. So I know the differences. Having used many of them, I have made Android my primary phone. The reasons for me are simple - I like to be in charge of my device. Customization is a choice, it is not mandatory. Many iphone owners will say oh you have to tweak your Android phone to make it useful. Nothing can be further from truth. It is entirely up to the user. There are many cool things you can do with Android that you never can on any iphone.

- A proper file manager/USB storage: what is it and why it matters? If you used any USB flash drive, you know how it works. You just plug it in and it shows up as a drive and you can drag and drop ANY file in it. Android works the same way. There is no special itunes/zune-like software you need to manage your phone. It's sad that Apple charges so much for higher capacity iphones yet the storage can not be managed in any way YOU please. It's strictly designed to be a consume devices - music and video.

- "AirDroid" - simple and free app for Android that allows you to do nearly everything from a browser interface without even touching your phone. this includes file transfer, app management, send/receive txts and much more. this is very convenient because you can have your phone in your pocket.

- "mysms" or "mighty text" - these are also handy as they allow you to send/receive sms without even touching your phone as long as your phone has working signal. pretty awesome in office environment.

Mind you, 90% of Android customization can be done by anyone irrespective of tech knowledge. There is no rooting(aka jailbreaking in Ios world) needed. Iphone users will tell you once you jailbreak an iphone, it can be made to work like Android. Again that's completely false. Jailbreaking idevice allows a little customization but it's nowhere near Android. And you still can't do anything you want. For instance- you still can't properly manage that storage on your idevice even after jailbreaking. Because jailbreaking doesn't change the core OS or how it behaves.

Great battery life. Charges pretty fast. Mine charges fully in roughly about an hour.
Highly portable. very lightweight.
Openness + Customization of Android.
Better reception - I've tried using my SIM card on my LG phone which drops signal but Sony was able to retain at least one bar.
Stylish - sure it's not made of aluminum but still looks and feels great on hand.

No expandable storage. Again if you are a light user, it should not bother you. Mind you all iphones never offered expandable storage yet they are very popular. So it really depends on your usage. I'm a heavy user and for me, the device must be flexible. And this is the only con I can mention about this device.

Final words about Android. As Android is platform agnostic, you will find low end to high end Android device. You can't really judge an OS by using a crappy Android device. Xperia U is above average/mid-range phone. It's of course unlocked so you can use AT&t 3G in the usa and worlwide.

5.0 out of 5 stars android navigation for cheap, only 15 Euro, August 18, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sygic: GPS Navigation (App)
for 15 EURO (about $24) Sygic is the best navigation package for Android. You might say copilot basic version is only $5. but guess what? many useful features are blocked in that version. in order to have a fully functioning gps, you must buy the copilot premium which is also $25. now we can compare the two. also other alternatives such as Ndrive and Navigon are more expensive.

Except for Sygic, none of the alternatives are visually pleasing. It is the best looking software. For only $24, I highly recommend this. You need a gps package if you don't have data service. Maps are stored on your memory card. Therefore it saves your precious data bits. another good thing about Sygic is that you can download each state individually. This saves your memory card space. I did not have any map download issues.

It is a free trial on both Amazon and android market. YOu have to purchase license key from Sygic's website.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you're interested in Android, avoid the hype, get a Nexus device, August 11, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Nexus S is a great phone. What makes it unique than the rest of the android phones is that you will always get your updates directly from Google instead of relying on the mercy of the manufacturer. In terms of hardware, most phones have similar specs. so what distinguishes is the software on them. For example the Nexus One is now nearly 2 years old YET it is officially running the latest Gingerbread update which is absent in many hyped and high end Android devices released in the last few months. Sadly many of these devices will probably never get a gingerbread update. A certain group would call this "fragmentation". It's not. You buy a device AS IS. The manufacturer is not required to provide the latest update. Yes it would be nice of them if they did. I 'm just saying they do not have a legal obligation. So you may be behind in terms of software update but your phone will continue to function the same way when you bought it. "fragmentation" is just a buzz word that a certain camp created.

why android?
- you are not tied to one computer AND one specific software to manage your phone and the content. you can use any computer, anywhere, with or WITHOUT a cable to manage your files and contents (use "File expert" from market). if you like having freedom/option/flexibility, then Android is for you.
- lots of free utilities and application
- free navigation by google (assuming you have data service)
- full web browsing with Flash. I'd like to point out regarding Flash, that certain group claims that Flash is a battery drainer. Well, what doesn't drain batter on a phone? When you use facebook on your phone, it drains battery. when you skype call on phone, it drains battery. when you watch youtube, it drains battery. So what's the problem? Why single out Flash? Allowing Flash on a certain platform will make a big dent in that platforms profit. Therefore they have made up silly reasons as a justification. Interestingly the same camp can't enjoy Blu-Ray movies. Web experience without Flash player is incomplete. I will not be told what is good for me. I would like to decide on my own. Thank you.

Some cool apps to have:
- File Expert (wireless file manager)
- Remote Desktop (send, receive sms, manage your phone over wifi)
- Auto Answer (auto call answer in speaker mode. highly useful when driving, never have to touch or look at your phone!)
- Gesture Search (by google. quickly search entire phone for contact, music, files etc, very accurate)
- ZDbox (multi purpose utility, app locker, info etc)
- and much more!

just few things:

- unlocked. you can use it worldwide, with any gsm. 3G speeds will vary.
- AWS/1700 band for 3g. Because at&t will acquire tmobile, it remains uncertain as to what at&t will do with that band. At&t uses 850 for 3G. This phone will work with at&t, just not at 3G.

The only thing I didn't like was the lack of sd card slot. You're stuck with 16GB built-in storage. I personally like having the option to expand my memory.

If you must have the latest and the greatest, you may want to wait a few months as a new Nexus PRIME will be released with ICE-cream sandwich! but if you want to enjoy the experience right now, this is the phone to get.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent entry level phone, May 3, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Nokia X3 slider is a great entry level phone. It is already unlocked so it can be used with ANY GSM service provider in the USA as well as in other countries. I actually bought two of these!

Can listen to FM radio without headphone plugged in.
Takes decent pictures.
