  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Purvesh Soni

    Was having doubts while purchasing this phone but somewhere in my mind i was sure that my 16K will not be wasted. And after testing the phone thoroughly for 20 days, I m happy that I invested my valuable 16K in this piece of art.
    Without much ado, i will now directly jump to
    PROS: A lot that are exclusive only to 25K+ high end phones
    1. Amazing combo of a 1 GHz Dual Core CPU and Mali-400MP Graphics GPU, gives superb output in games and playing videos. Xperia U is in the club of Samsung Galaxy S2, S3 and Note N7000 which are also having Mali-400 MP GPU.
    2. Superb HD Display, any video above 480p will blow away your mind.
    3. USB OTG (on the go) supports most of the pendrives, mouse, keyboard etc, a feature of advanced phones available in price range above 30K. (u need a Micro USB to USB Female, buy it fm EBAY, i did)
    4. Superb camera result, the autofocus does its job well.
    5. Ultra light, just 110 GMS.
    6. Very very responsive touch.
    7. Lightening fast 3G speed, I have got a max of 2 MBPS download speed from Vodafone 3G
    CONS: Things that you can live with
    1. 8 GB memory (Not Expandable) – [Solution – USB OTG, use pendrive if required]
    2. Keyboard having small keys when phone is vertical – [Solution – type with phone horizontal]
    3. Excessive battery drain while using Highend 3D games and downloading via 3G – [Solution – play with a charger plugged-in and download “BATTERY SAVER” app from Google Play] If your phone starts heating up from the back side, you are using too many apps at the same time which is eating away your battery very fast. Take a break, Let the phone cool down first and then use it again!! These are the only cons of this phone.
    In a nutshell, the conclusion is that THERE IS MUCH TO GAIN AND LESS TO LOSE AT THIS PRICE just go for it if you have a budget upto 18K

    I dont why this hoopla is being created around the 4GB of memory provided for user storage.
    See as simple as that, its not for those high-ended people who like to keep tons of data on their fone for which they are crying foul over the less storage.
    I personally find 4 gb more than enough for my file storage on top of it Sony provides additional 2Gb sorage for applictaions, which, in other fones is around 170-200MB approx.
    So, guys other than that “alleged” flaw there’s nothing bad in this fone. I got mine yesterday itself & it works like a Charm and it has SO MANY amazing qualities like :

    1. SUPERB CAMERA QUALITY (really mindblowing)
    2. 1Ghz Dual-Core Processor (works amazingly fast)
    3. The TimeScape UI is just Awesome!!
    4. xLoud Audio Filter, 3D surround Sound & Equalizer.
    5. The Screen Resolution is so Bright n Crisp its just out of this world.
    6. Sound quality is also brilliant.
    7. THE BEST at this price around 16K.
    8. Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 Update in 2nd Quarter of 2012.
    9. Supports OTG(OnTheGo), i.e, u can add externl device mediums like Pendrive, Hard 10. Disk, etc. For this u have to buy a cable which is cheaply accessible around Rs.200 on eBay.

    So guys if ur budget is around 16-18K this is THE BEST deal u can get in fones in the present market.
    U wont be disappointed at all.
    Seriously, as Satya Keerthy said, sum1 must be a fool to opt out of buying this fone just becoz of the petty Memory Issue.

    The battery also lasts easily 1 to 1.5 days with saome basic tweaks for power consumption.
    And another good news that when it’ll get its update to ICS Android 4.0, its battery performance will increase furthermore, so nothing to worry abot regarding the battery too.

    Go for it guys, u’ll love it.

    First of all I REALLY GOTTA BOW DOWN TO THIS PHONE!!! All other features apart… (Everything has been discussed so far).. So no point in making this review even more BOOOOOORING!!! 😀 😀


    * * * Have everyone forgotten OTG??ON THE GO USB (which i am damn sure most(almost none) of the phones features this!!! ) !!! 🙂



    (SAMSUNG GALAXY ACE + – Are u kidding me??The display is horrible)
    (HTC ONE v – Worth the try but where is dual core processor and OTG??)

    ALL THE PHONE MAKERS PROVIDE ANDROID PHONES!! But its SONY which has the edge with “THE BEST INNOVATIVE” Design… Its just LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT !!! (BTW THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I AM REVIEWING A PRODUCT and you would know how much i am in love with my phone!! ) ADIOS AMIGOS!! 🙂

    I will start with the main point everyone is mentioning.
    But before you deduct 1 or more stars for this, know about its OTG (On The Go) feature.
    You can connect any pendrive of any size to it just via a small cable. This indirectly means you are adding external storage.
    This also means due to less data actually stored on phone & all your heavy data outside on a pendrive, the phone will process even faster & smoother.
    A pendrive weighs like what 20gms?

    & 4GB is like a black hole for photos & games.. :p
    You will never fall short of it.
    But still if you feel its not right, you should go write a review for Sola & not review this product before buying it.

    Write a bad review only if you have bought it & are facing a problem.
    And if you cry about expandable storage after buying it, I and everyone would laugh at your face.. xD

    Guys I Bought This Phone 2 Days Back From Sony Store In Noida and Believe me , i have been continuously using the device since then and the phone just doesn’t lag at all. The Dual Core Performs in a Splendid Way and the screen is just marvelous , The Games run superbly without any lag and the Browser experience is Superb as well. Yes , People might argue with 4Gb memory , Guys it has a total of 6 Gb with 2Gb reserved for Apps and 4Gb completely available for Users , 2Gb is reserved for OS . Now I Suppose Iphone 3GS and Iphone 4 also comes with 8Gb of Storage , No One Complains there,………..It is just that People who Don’t Like Sony Products and Hate Sony are complaining . Guys I would Request each one Of u to go to a Sony Store and Try the Phone first as they all have a Demo with them. Then compare with what rubbish Samsung and HTC are giving at this price range then , you yourself will feel the difference. So , I would suggest each one of You to First Try The Phone and then Buy It. You Will Feel The Power Of The Phone Yourself.

    @Yuvananda Praveen I must tell you, you are one of those people who are blinded by rumors and space issues. First thing, it doesnt have an embedded battery, it is user removable. Then the 4GB problem. No one, and I mean No one will store 10HD videos. And one more thing, 5-6mins of HD videos dont have 300mb. Movies, 3hr movies, that are HD, come upto a size of just over 890mb. Dont say things you dont know about. Also the 1300mAH battery is enough as, people who know the technical aspects of a processor and all, know that the NOVATHOR chipset in this phone is the most fuel efficient chipset out there.
    And for people worrying about the limited space, there is always cloud storage. Some of you think that cloud storage is yet to come to india, well guess what, India was one of the first countries to get it, through Microsoft. And in January everyother company as well adopted it. So there is no problem in that aspect. Also, none of you(and I mean every single one of you) wont use more than 4gb, I can guarantee you that.(I have an iPod 16gb and with about 30apps, 100 songs and 1movie, I have used up 2gb)Trust me, 4GB is heaven.
    And also no other phone in this price range gives you a Dual core chipset, a front facing camera.
    Please dont think about the storage, if you dont like, say the looks of the device, dont buy it. But believe me if you dont buy this saying you dont have enough space, you are missing out the Future of Android(ICS upgradable!)
    I know this from personal experience that is a good phone, i had this for a month, I am a reviewer(not a big company or anything) but i got this phone for reviewing and it was great!

    Aman Alam

    Don’t have much to say about many other things, but to those of you who are complaining about fixed internal memory, let me tell you that it IS beneficial.

    The MicroSD cards that are used in the phones, come in 3 classes (wikipedia it) and normally the ones which are sold in the market for phones or are supplied in the pack are the ones with least speed.

    An internal memory, on the other hand, increases the speed, lowers the amount of effort that processor needs to make to access a removable and slower media, that too is hot swappable.

    And, if you’re about to store freaking movies in it to watch on a 3.5″ screen, get a life or buy another phone.

    It connects to your pendrive only because it is trying to let you transfer your heavy stuff to another storage so that you can use this “mobile” device more effectively and fill it up with more content “on the go”

    Its a mobile phone, not a computer to store all of your videos photos and what not.

    But, it supports USB OTG.
    Over all good.If u Have 17k to buy a phone go for it.

    The specs cant justify how “”sweet love”” this phone is.
    I’ve been power-using this phone for 13days and hell yeah its Awesome..
    1. Display is FRIGGING AWESOME !!!
    2. Up-gradable to ICS which works like a CHARM !!
    3. STILL CAMERA is INCREDIBLE… (tweet me at @apurvsaraf if u want samples)
    4. Video Recording in 720p HD is Breathtakingly amazing. (I have samples)
    5. Video Playback is…. “Well Its SONY BRAVIA”, so its Beautiful
    6. Most in-built apps are good and those which are not so good can be easily removed.
    7. Games and all apss work INSANELY WELL..

    1. Storage. Well This is the age of Cloud computing but if you’re still stuck in the early 2000’s then, GOD BLESS YOUR BRAINS.. Its good enough for me.
    2. Battery just like most smartphones lasts a day. (not a con actually)

    VERY VERY ADDICTING Phone… Love at First Sight is Inevitable…

    DONT’T THINK TWICE…. iPhone ka mazaa jab Xperia U mein mile to koi iPhone kyun le.. ????
