Good phone, but definitely a used one

A9okalypse, Amazon

  • Summary: Xperia SP is a good phone for those who don't want high end performance. It's hard for me to tell the difference between the 720p screen on SP and the 1080p one on HTC One. Snapdragon S4 is enough cause I never play games on a cellphone. And $319 is a good deal - BUT THIS IS DEFINITELY A USED PHONE!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't know if every phone sold from amazon is like this, but the seal on the box was broken - and the whole box was so shabby!

  • Excerpt: I've had this phone for 5 months and its a huge disappointment read all of the reviews regarding the Sony and Samsung and decided to be different and opt for the Sony , "big mistake" like some of the reviews this phone keeps on freezing ,shutting down and many many many messages that certain apps are not responding.I had many problems with my Nokia upgrade but this phone is far worse .

I want to like it more

F. Yung, Amazon

  • Summary: It's gorgeous, with the right size, and I'm not expecting a flagship phone, but... touchscreen unresponsive, slow camera, and despite advertised as supporting PS3 wireless controller it can't be used wirelessly. Doesn't live up to the expectations as a Sony mid-range phone.

  • Excerpt: My main concern with this phone is that the internal storage is a little low as most of the built in 8gb memory is already taken up by pre installed apps. So you have to be careful not to install a lot of apps onto the phone. Yes you can add an external micro SD card but not all apps will install on the card. So beware if you intend to use this phone for gaming with high memory usage.

Underwhelming

LewisH, Amazon
10 January 2014
  • Summary: It seems to be the norm with smart phones that they have dire batteries and are just bit 'meh'. The Xperia SP is no different. The phone struggles to play music and surf the web at the same time. With either deciding to crash. This could be the OS more than the phone, but you'd expect the two to work together properly. I guess this is where Apple have the upper hand.

xperia SP- not a bad mid-range tool

Mr. J. T. Nasim, Amazon
8 December 2013
  • Summary: Having just sold my 2 year old iPhone 4S, I wanted something simple to use but powerful. The SP is, for the cost, almost untouchable. The processor is powerful, the graphics are crisp and the handset is well made and attractive (the LED bar at the bottom is a nice touch). However, while it was a joy to behold and, for the most part use, sadly the 8mp camera isn't quite up to scratch.

After 4 months - it is an OK phone, but now maybe consider a Nexus 5

Great looking and fast

Ryan, Woolworths

  • Summary: Had this phone a month now and kind of regretting not getting a Nokia Lumia 920 instead and going with the new upcoming Windows OS. This phone looks great and feels good and is very quick when it comes to app's and moving about through the phone. Massively let down by its useless Camera, Wifi and Signal. The Camera is blurry and you are very lucky if you mange to get a good shot. The Wifi is useless and goes out of range soon as you go out of the room with the router in.
