Amazing phone for the price so its worth sacrificing the memory.
2 January 2013
Summary: Amazing phone for the price so its worth sacrificing the small internal storage. Android clutters the phone with way too much apps and software so its a pain to sort through but I love the android OS overall. The phone takes great pictures and video, and the small screen is just the perfect size.
Excerpt: I finally managed my mom to buy a smartphone. It was getting tasky on her to operate the webcam and turn on Skype every time she had to video chat with me abroad. So this time I was around, I got her a Sony Xperia U. I used it for about two weeks as my own cell phone to get acclimatized to the feel. The other reason being I had to teach my mom how to use all the features in a jargon free language.
Excerpt: I'm really happy with this phone, I think is really good for its price. Overall, there are some features that I don't think that surprises me, but I was expecting more: the dual-core processor doesn't really make a diference comparing to the 1ghz processor single-core, the display has bright colors but it is not HD and it has no sd card slot which makes a limited memory for the ones who have lots of applications and games.
Summary: I have been using it as my main phone for year and a half, and I am very happy overall. Depending on use the battery lasts between 1 or 2 days. The screen is responsive. The phone can be fast depending on the SO. Good camera. Keep it on stock (2.3.7). Don't update unless you plan using a custom rom.
Summary: The Sony U is actually a good, little Android powered phone. It fits in the palm of my hand so I don't have to fear that it will slip. It also looks good - it's eye catching. Also, with the phone you can also always change the bottom bar. Thus if you feel bored with your phone, you can change the bottom bar. There are many colours, such as, pink or yellow. It makes your phone look brighter and generally more eye-catching. However, I dislike the constant flashing bar.
Pros: Good small phone, great keypad and able to change how phone looks
Summary: I bought this Sony Xperia and a lot of people told me to ICS, but I stuck to Gingerbread and I think it works best. A friend who upgraded his phone to IceCream Sandwich said that the phone faces too much lags and hangs. Even while making or receiving calls there is a lag time. So, don't fiddle too much with the technical aspects of this phone and it will serve you very well. That is what the c....
Summary: This phone is great for light usage of music and social media. Mine overheats a lot and crashes. The camera is simple and great for simple shots. Mine lasts about 12 hours on heavy use and 18 on low to moderate use. Great if you want a phone that will sit and lay down but not beg and jump.
Pros: Great for calls, emails and social media.
Cons: Difficult to use on full websites, can crash a lot and overheat.
Excerpt: "The Xperia U is a good phone for the price it is a good smart phone, I also found an application that lets you choose to have the bar at the bottom light up when you get a message, missed call, notifications and a few others that will pulse, which is very useful. It is a great size, fits in your hand perfect, there are lots of nice cases for this phone, it is also very secure and practical. The camera was really good at first but for some reason mine ...
Pros: good phone, secure, practical, good for the price .
Cons: does freeze and I have to force close some apps could be to do with memory or the app .
