Jelly Bean upgrade= More Bugs!!!
on January 17, 2013
First of all do yourself a favor and enter to gsmarenadotcom or another place where you can compare phones and you will see that this phone gives you more than what you are paying for. Please compare the phone with the iphone, galaxy, htc etc.
-Price is great compared to other phones with same features.
-Great looking, not as stylish as iphone but is good
-Timeline feature is great if you like facebook.
-It was very easy to setup the mobile internet connection, it has a feature in mobile network setting when you choose your service provider and the phone is ready to use. I bought this phone to use with t mobile and i getting the H(HSDPA = 3G) and edge speed, i am in New York.
-Crystal clear calls
-Another feature is that you can see flash content on web pages, like watching NBA videos.
-Ice Cream sandwich
This update was full of bugs: Lag, camera bug, etc...
-Jelly Bean: see bottom page.
-Cable from wall charger is too short
-No HDMI cable
-There are just a few covers and accessories for this phone
-Cheap plastic on the lower part of the phone.
Final: i spent hours looking for the perfect unlocked phone and for the money this phone was the best that i found. Hope this help you.
Update 1/25/2013: After i remove the charger from the phone the charging notification still there, the only solution for me right now is to restart the phone. I'll keep you posted!
Update 1/26/2013: The phone is back to normal, I just restarted the phone and I used the phone until the charge was in 30 % and tried again to charge the phone and the problem went away.
Update 4/2/2013: Whenever I try to take a picture with flash at 8MP half of the picture becomes black. It seems that this is a common problem after update the phone to ICS. Many users are waiting for the Jelly Bean Update to fix the problem. This update is schedule for April. I'll keep you posted!
Update 4/25/2013: JB is here and all the bugs were fixed, right now the phone is perfect for me. These are some features about the update:
- Updated, more intuitive versions of Sony Media apps: WALKMAN, Album and Movies
- Lets you view and access all your photos, videos and tunes in one place.
-Increased options for personalisation
-A revamped home screen experience for handling widgets, apps and shortcuts... With up to 7 desktop panes, widgets that auto-resize and actionable notifications, you have complete flexibility to create the interface you want / need with a few simple touches!
-Improved app organisation and search
- Application tray sorting is that bit breezier - just press and hold on any app - move, add it to your desktop or create a folder within the tray by dropping it on top of another! We've also added a new search function within the application tray that makes it easy to locate your loceal apps
-IBattery STAMINA mode
-Make your battery last longer with the new and improved Battery Stamina mode.

Worst phone I ever buy. The phone has more bugs with jelly bean upgrade than before with ICS. The worst bug is dialer lagging, you cannot even call on this phone. This is not the only one, you can check sony's forum and see others phones from sony having the same issues. BUGS BUGS BUGS!
Sony 's phones are just a disgrace for android community. You should be ashamed Sony!!
