Great phone, big but thin

Summary: Great phone, big but thin. Processor is fast and screen is beautiful. The only downside is that it does not have a flash. I should have researched a little better. Still a great phone at a great price.
Excerpt: The slick look of the phone looks great. The large screen makes online shopping a joy. Only thing about the phone that I don't like is the size. If it is a little smaller, that would be perfect.
Excerpt: fast delivery, ordered yesterday and was delivered today. The box was opened and sealed by seller, also the unit upon checking was already running/updated to kitkat 4.4.4. So far the unit is just working fine (day 1).
Pros: so far okay
Cons: open box and the unit was already running kitkat 4.4.4
Summary: This is certainly the best phone I have ever owned. It is snappy, especially on Wifi, beautiful and built solidly. Sony does not cut corners when they are making their phones ala Apple. I love the glass frame, which gives it its sophisticated and distinguished look; however, I find myself cleaning up the phone a lot because it attracts fingerprints so much. One thing you need to know is the phone is really really big.

Summary: Caught a great deal on a "used -- like new" phone from a third-party seller. Phone was in brand-new condition with the original protective wrap still around the phone. I use the phone with T-Mobile LTE and in my area I am getting speeds of 25Mb - 30Mb download -- very nice. Screen is bright and Sony's software does not interfere with the Android experience to the degree that skins like TouchWiz are notorious for.
Summary: Seemed ridiculously large at first but it grows on you. This is a very high spec device for the price if you don't mind last years tech. The downside was the screen shattered after a fall most of my other phones would have survived and Sony aren't interested in fixing it. In all fairness the description does say no warranty and Sony don't repair breakage caused by falls. The quote to repair the screen is $350 which is more than a new phone at current prices.
Summary: The screen is sharp. The design is slim. I get a lot of compliments. It does everything I need and then some. I no longer need a cell phone plus a tablet. If I had small hands, this phone might seem bulky but I have a slim case on it and it rocks. I just wish the camera was better and it needs a flash for low light performance. I would buy this phone again.
