Summary: Here's why: I bought this to have a back-up phone in the event that my primary phone is being serviced, as my cell is used primarily for business. This Sony Xperia U's touchscreen does not respond to touch (which makes answering phone calls impossible), is extremely slow to respond when it does accept touch actions, and the apps continually freeze. Don't bother with purchasing.
Summary: It's well made, compact and fast, with a great screen and impressive camera, at least in daylight. The Android 4.0 update is also welcome, as it makes the phone feel significantly faster, but at the expense of some battery life. The phone also feels like a classy bit of kit, especially considering it's currently price.
Summary: I love my phone! I had one previously, but it took an unfortunate tumble, so I had to replace it, hence ordering it here on Amazon. It's a really rad phone - the light feature on the bottom is very unique and has started many conversations with strangers. I will admit that over time, it has slowed down some, but I stand by it 100%! As an interesting side note, it's the same phone Gwen Stacey has in The Amazing Spider Man 2.
Summary: Hi there. Amazing phone, small, good looking. I bought it because I needed a new phone, and I liked this one, and the price was absolutely amazing. Probably I'm gonna buy another one to give as a gift.
