Excerpt: Really happy with this phone. Even though it's S3 processor it performs like a champ. I have a HTC with same processor clocked at a higher speed and Sony still outperforms it which shows hardware and software are top notch. Built like a tank, handles drops no problem. HDMI output is really fun. You can control the phone with the factory TV remote and works with almost all new TV's even cheap brand ones like Vizio, Insignia, etc. 720p display looks amazing.
Pros: Fast, Build quality, HDMI output with TV control, Nice UI, Screen, Camera, Battery life, Comfortable to hold, MicroSD card slot, works with 64GB card, USB OTG compatible, NFC, Extremely fast LTE (on compatible networks)
Cons: Internal speakerphone, Not gorilla glass, scratches VERY easily, Audio output to speakers quieter then other phones, but headphones output seems louder then other phones, Uses MicroSIM, even though slot will fit MiniSIM perfectly fine, Non removable battery, USB+HDMI port flap/cover broke off after a week
Summary: It is my first phone from Sony. It is stylish, durable, and reliable. I love this phone very much. The only concern is the RAM of this phone is 1gb, however, the original ROM uses up more than 700mb when the phone starts up, that is, only left 300mb for the user. You can install unofficial ROM from Google, that makes this phone more responsive.
Summary: I like it, the camera don't do good on all the megapixels but take good pics at 9 mp its, the speaker it's no really good on music it's not that loud or even talk but works so it's average cell phone
Summary: This is my first smart phone. Didn't know what to expect. I , no we love the phones. So many features. The size is perfect resolution even better. Sometimes when I don't feel like booting my laptop I use my phone. As a matter of fact I forget we even have a desktop and laptop in the house. When I upgrade I'll stick with the Xperia family.
