Pretty good phablet

Summary: I bought this phone as I really wanted a screen size of about 6-1/2 inches, and this came closest. 7" tablets were too big to hold comfortably in one hand and the 5.7" Galaxy Note 3 I have was a might too small for reading (Kindle app) comfortably. This is my Goldilocks size, and I'm happy with that. I got the phone to use as a tablet, then today went ahead and activated it for use as a phone as well.
Summary: The phone is great! However, be advised that this phone is not the Google Play Edition, as the seller claims in the answered questions. It is indeed the Xperia edition. Fortunately, it is still loaded with the latest version of Kitkat 4.4.4 and Sony has not taken a heavy hand to the UI. It does have the usual Sony bloatware that you cannot uninstall, but since you are buying it unlocked it is blissfully free of carrier bloat.
the benefit of a giant screen outweighs the drawback of holding a giant phone

Summary: I have been using this phone for a week or so now. I have really come to love phablets. They are a little unwieldy, and if I spent alot of time making voice calls, I surely wouldn't want one. But as I use it mostly for email, browsing, apps, and messaging, having a giant screen is so much more fulfilling than a 4" screen ever could be. For those few phone calls, I bought an nfc headset to go with it. Aside from the size, the image is superb.
Yeah it's big, but it fits in my pocket just fine. No, I am not Shaq.

Summary: Inmo all phones will eventually morph into foldable tablets. I wanted to be ahead of the game with this purchase. I bought this phone elsewhere, for less $ at the time. I have had it about a week now. I run T-Mobile (no contract) on it. Yes LTE works in the Minneapolis area. Obviously this is a big phone. You wouldn't be looking at it if you wanted a 4 inch screen. No phone does everything for everyone. Not even the i versions of a phone, sorry, not hating.
Summary: The performance, feel and quality of the phone is great, I give it 4 star only because Sony should include at least the magnetic charging cable,the std usb charging cable its a pain, because of the water proofing cover, I have already dropped it and got a ugly scuff on one corner but the screen was untouched, very happy with this phone, I bought it as an Ipad mini replacement and I love it!

Summary: Hi Amazon and Justbuydealstoday! Thanks for clearing up all issues we've been thru. I don't know how but your responds were very quick and helpful(both Amazon and Justbuydealstoday). I received promtly update status and got final email said that refund from Amazon back to my credit card(I thought I can exchange another one :). This is very good customer service from you, not leaving customer behind once sold products.
Summary: It is awesome, but it is missing some standard features and needs improvements including: Flash Loud speaker is odd Button placement Camera quality is low Otherwise, its the best phone I have ever owned. I have owned many of the top phones.
Summary: The phone is gorgeous, the thinness is incredible. The best part besides the size of the screen is the speed, my last phone was a Note and this rocks. The speed is unbelievable, everything snaps. It does have a few bad things, 1. If you just stare at it, the screen and glass back get scratched. It's ridiculous how easy it scratches. 2. I had read the camera was mediocre. It's mediocre for 2005. Disgraceful would describe it. Really poor photos. I don't miss the flash.
