5 out of 5 eggsGoodDeal

Pros: For the price this is a Great phone!

It's Sony, and it works as advertised. Nice display. The phone Isn't too large, yet usable and it is still small enough to fit in a pocket. Sound quality is great for music playback, and the dual sim feature works well.

Cons: It could use more application memory.

4 out of 5 eggsWhyPayMore!

Pros: SONY scores with a great smartphone that does what a $600+ and bigger phone does while excaping the big Company data ripoff cellphone plans... Lets you use local wi-fi for data including Google Maps accurate and with GPS-A fast at keeping your position enroute, internet and messaging on wi-fi is free, and the phone makes internet calls automatically off any wi-fi signal available at home and in public places to save you minutes. Saves allot if you start using pay as you go minutes or just want to save data and minutes on the standard provider. All calls are clear and great strength on wi-fi and on the networks. SONY, ignored by the providers in the U.S. has hit a user homerun that even the hacker types will find has all the angles covered... and it is cheap enough to be paid for by saving two months of the provider's plans and escape of the "contract" you are now FREE to communicate for less and for very little compromise in functionality. Android is fast and beautiful running all the available apps. Great battery time. Great screen. Compact but with two finger "pinch" lets you zoom to see whatever you need to on the clear and responsive touch screen.

Cons: Not enough time to find any - compromises are minor. VERY SATISFIED with SONY - makes the quality and the inconvenience is minimal. Small and light yet rugged has enough to display and play everything available. FM is STEREO. 32 Gb micro slot and twin simcard capable matches the $700 phones. Walkman audio is slick and uses mono but loud and clear speaker built in. BlueTooth is untried but specs cover most use. Rugged glass screen but like all of them you better not drop the phone from any height or drop into water. However small and easy to pocket and keep safe. If you need it mostly for the routine calling and light data or gaming, it can't be beat. SONY will sell a ton of these here. It is the first to compete with the S. Korea HTC and Samsung that were selling heavilly in the far east where the big carrier providers are not a factor. Advantage to the thrifty... this phone is not spec by the Companies but instead meets the users that know how to save money but want a quality phone with big battery life. If you are not a heavy data user, it can last more than a week of moderate calling between charges!

Other Thoughts: Can't yet get a selection of cases for this phone here. Expect more selection soon. Can't say enough for this phone that will not disappoint you and pays for itself if you can cut the contract (or keep it expired!) with the provider companies. Why share all your money with them!

5 out of 5 eggsperrrrfect just what I needed and expected

Pros: Unlocked good price with discount. dual SIM, late Android op system and more memory than other phones in this class.
lots of good features.
long battery life been using most of day on web/email setting up everything still at 70%.
voice commands worked perfect.
loud speaker. Read the specs -- check the size know what to expect and you should be happy.

Cons: no real problems got what I expected. apps I don't but everyone is different.

Other Thoughts: I got what I needed and in my price range this phone is just right. needed to cut cost of service with a unlocked phone (how about by 2/3rd's) needed dual SIM. The GPS is better than my last phone.
