4 out of 5 eggsDecent for price

Pros: Unlocked, so you can pick choose between whatever carriers are using SIM cards. Stylish; doesn' t look all the other iphones, galaxys', tablets, etc. Upgradeable to Android 4.0 ICS: something I recommend a new owner to do so immeidiately. 8GB microSD card is included with purchase so you're essentially ready to go. 8.1MP camera is decent. Sony's Timescape feature gives me one place for all my recent messages, tweets, calls, etc. Though Sony Ericsson in the past has been on the slow side of upgrading their smartphones' OSes they've been reasonable in the time it took to get this phone ready for ICS.

Cons: This phone IS NOT 4G LTE compatible; you're going to be stuck with last gen's 3G or whatever's most likely the '2nd fastest' network your carrier is offering. Only had this phone for a few months and the display is getting scratched up; this is due to my failings but I feel that it must be brought up and I won't take off any eggs because of any cons here as I knew what I was buying. This is a Sony Ericsson, thus has a record of being fairly slow in upgrading to the newest versions of Android.

Other Thoughts: If you need to stream videos/movies or anything else that requires you to be outside a WiFi network frequently I suggest finding a different phone.
