Summary: Pros: Waterproof and dustproof (not verified by me) Sleek Official Android 4 upgrade Cons: Low Res display Desktop sync software doesn't sync properly with Outlook. Clueless customer service agents Other Thoughts: I never actually used this phone to place a call. I couldn't get it to sync with outlook contacts and calendar and I must have this in my smartphone.
Summary: I bought this phone primarily because it was advertised as being waterproof and drop-proof. Unfortunately, I can tell you that the phone is not waterproof. My cat decided to take a partial dump on the phone and I ran it under a slow stream of water to wash it clean but it ruined the call volume such that I can't understand callers unless the room provides complete silence. If the phone can't deliver the primary points of sell, i.e.
Summary: This is my 2nd purchase and both phones so far have the light leak issue. Basically, at an angle, you can see a horizontal light leaking at the top edge of the screen. According to Sony support, this isn't normal BUT several other users have noticed this issue with the screen. Sony really needs to focus on quality control instead of releasing 10 different phones every few months. The phone itself is pretty good for what it is. Perfect "fit in your pocket" phone.
Summary: I really loved my first Sony phone - the W810i, which is like the Windows Millennium Edition of phones. It was the only model at the time that didn't have A2DP Bluetooth Streaming Audio, but I liked everything else about it, so I kept it. Fast forward four years and I finally upgraded to another Sony - the Xperia Mini Pro. It was great for about three months then the keyboard died.
Summary: Initially pleased until dropped on the floor, then disappointed by significant damage resulting from a three foot fall as well as Sony customer service. Like the idea of a nice looking rugged phone but this phone definitely does not live up to expectations. Would not recommend.
Summary: Having bought the phone we were forced to ditch it as it was extremely difficult hear conversations on it. Whether it is the aerial (we live in a poorish reception area) or just the phone itself was not clear.
Summary: As I said above, the phone can be very slow, and certain things it does drive me nuts, such as the fact that every time I exit Facebook, the phone will open the camera app, then if I press the back button, the phone opens Google Chrome, so I press the back button again, and it opens the camera app, and it results in this cycle many times. I have to press the home button to get out of it. Also, it is fantastically prone to freezing.
Pros: It is actually waterproof. I accidentally dropped it into a (clean, luckily) toilet, and I've dropped it into a river, and it works still.
Cons: It can be incredibly slow at times, especially opening the camera app and Google Chrome.
