4 out of 5 eggsBetter Sony Phone

Pros: Faster processor and GPU leaves 2011 the Sony Ericsson phones in the dust. Bright and accurate touch screen. Slot for uSDHC card for more media storage. This is a good choice if you don't want a tablet sized phone.

Cons: Mechanical camera shutter switch is unusable: requires too much force. There is a touch screen shutter, though. Five MP camera photos are just mediocre and low audio on video recordings. Make sure any voice recorder app can add 20 dB mike gain.

The added uSDHC card mounts as /mnt/ext_card so some apps may not be able to use it. The internal storage is the normal /mnt/sdcard. The internal storage connects only as MTP through the USB cable which may be a problem with Linux and older Windows Media Player. It appears as a camera on my XP SP2 system.

Other Thoughts: This decent phone will be sold off at discount prices due to the shutter switch defect.
