Summary: The phone is small in size, good for travel. Mine came unlocked, along with accessories and instructions, new in box. It's a typical Android phone, no surprises. The screen is matt and somewhat grainy. If you are used to Iphone or Galaxy or even some of the more expensive Sony phones, you will hate the screen. Allows 2 SIM cards, but I had no use for this feature. Battery life is decent, will last 1 entire day with map app on and occasional calls, enough to travel with.
Summary: You know, I am still messing around with this phone. I wanted to rate it more because of the dual sim aspect, but here is my problem. The internal memory has 4 GB (2 GB user available) & able to add up to 32 GB on SD Card. I have yet to DL Apps from Google Play because of "insufficient space available" or so it says. Then, it is not clear how to DL Apps to SD card.
Summary: The phone works (I'm stationed in Italy). I'm able to put a european sim card in it with no problem. It's not the best phone out there, but it works as a good smart phone. I only have a short time left on my tour and I didn't want to spend a lot of money on great smart phone (ie. galaxy S5 or Note 3), so I wanted to get a budget smart phone for internet usage.
Summary: I got this smart phone from Sony showroom, as I did not want any contracts from money rippers like Verizon and other companies and wanted something in my budget. Here are my thoughts on this phone: This mobile phone is the successor of Sony Xperia Tipo. Pros:: 3.5-inch (480 x 320 pixels) TFT capacitive touch screen display and good sensitivity. Responds well to your finger tips. 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7227A processor.
A cheap replacement phone for people who are locked in by a 2 years contract.

Summary: Very slow. Display resolution is not very good. Overall quality is not like a Sony product quality. It's a good replacement phone for a broken phone (I still have 6 months to go before I can get a phone upgrade from my provider).
Summary: I would give it a 3.5. The phone is nice looking. The battery doesn't run low much fast, it's ok to be the whole day playing music and whatsapping if fully charged in the morning. But sometimes it gets really slow. It's like it wouldn't be completely awake. I downloaded a thrash cleaner and it became sort of fast again. Even though, don't recommend to use a whole bunch of applications at once.
