Summary: Overall I had an extremely good experience with this seller. The phone that I ordered came over A MONTH before the estimated arrival date. The phone came in its original packaging with many goodies. It would have been a 5-star rating, but the phone didn't come with a Micro SD card, which is essential for storing anything on the phone. Luckily I have my old phone with its Micro SD card.
Excerpt: I'm posting this review, after using this phone for over 2 years. Not sure anyone will ever read this but I feel I might as well contribute to the website. This was my first smartphone, and phone for that matter, still I feel that after having it for so long I know what I'm talking about. This phone has definitely got an interesting design, a great camera (for it's time) and beautiful display (even though it's not HD of FHD like newer phones).
Pros: Camera, Design, Screen, Lightweight, Xperia UI (clean, no real bloatware)
Cons: Performance, 3G speed (7Mbps max), Build quality, Power button (poor location and small), Audio jack doesn't work with headsets with remotes that are Apple compatible (different arrangement of the connectors), Lack of a front facing camera, Poor Wifi connectivity
Summary: Great product since Sony ericsson no longer produce the phone, it is the last call. Not only for using communication, but also can be a sentimental value for anyone who is the Fan of Sony Ercisson
Summary: It's older, but so far it has served me better than my Lg p999. The p999 was fine once I'd installed a good OS, as is this unit after a few updates. It takes great pictures and is an excellent hotspot, which has saved my life on more than one occasion, in Italy and in Honolulu. I've seen Naples and the whole of Rome through the lens of the xperia. My best photos came from the lens of this Sony device.
This Smartphone is only a 3G phone that why it is a 4 star!

Summary: This Smartphone is amazing slim & a very good long hour of use before i need to recharge it. The camera on this is very sharp, and don't need much light. the sound is crytal clear on the speaker when i'm play my mp3. great phone but it would be better if it was a 4G.
