However it is a phone and that part at least works so doea the qwerty... Camera is pretty awesome as well...
I've never purchased a Sony product that I've been happy with. Ever.

Summary: I bought this phone based on size, keyboard, other reviews. Looked like a winner. Be warned! There is a known problem with this phone where the mini USB port goes bad and prevents the phone from charging. Apparently Sony will not fix the phone under warranty (not that these phones have warranties) and it will cost too much to pay for a repair. My phone stopped charging after plugging it in 3 or 4 times. Seeing if I can exchange it with the seller right now.
Summary: this cute luking smartphone is definetely meant for all those who are luking for a handy sleek classy n a palm sized android phone..but surely the battery is sumthing 2 complain about.. wid 1 minute of usage it reduces by 1 percent..what can be worse..i wonder if amazon has supplied me the original one..hopping to get a favourable response..
Nice looking phone, but a pathetic excuse for a battery!

Summary: First off, I love the style and feel of this phone. Android is an awesome OS (sorry Apple, I am a PC guy). The slide QWERTY keyboard is actually pretty easy to use, considering the size of the phone. I have fairly large fingers. Downside.... BATTERY SUCKS!!! I understand that there are higher capacity batteries out there that will extend the standby time of this phone, but it shouldn't be coming out of the box with such a pathetic excuse of battery standby time.
Summary: I bought this phone because of some of the positive reviews. I wish people were more critical when writing their reviews. I must say I would not want a phone like this even if it is free. I returned the phone the 2nd day I received it. Short battery life, hard to use, low ring tone volume, low phone voice volume. The wifi does not work, the internet is slllllloow. A piece of junk.
Summary: I am actually shopping for a replacement for this phone, it's just too annoying. It is a nice looking phone, small enough to be practical and is capable of running lots of interesting apps and whatnot, but it has a few fatal flaws that spoil it: I only use my phone casually, a few texts and maybe a short call a day are all I really ask of it. Despite this, the battery only lasts me one day between charges.
good features but reliability and Sony service in question

Summary: Update as of 10/18/2013. Tried solving the sliding keyboard issue with a new flex cable. Didn't work. Moved on to another phone, will probably euthanize this one. Too bad, I really liked it's size and features, just not built for the long haul. Update as of 6/2012. More sliding keyboard issues. This time, the screen goes blank any time I open the slider to use the keyboard.
Summary: hi, when i ordered this item i exept more things.i like it because is the same style like the iphone but it is far away from it.the touch screen is not very good sensity,the analyze of screen its very poor as the camera.some programs have chinese menu,the battery keep 20hours only after from a full charging.you want more????i'm not very happy from this buy...
Summary: What brand of SIM card do I buy for this phone ? I inserted my Boost Mobile SIM but I can't make any calls . I also inserted a 4g memory card but can't surf the web. I can't find anything on the specs for this phone I've had it for a month now and still haven't been able to use it
