4 out of 5 eggsC5306

Pros: Feels solid in hand excellent quality Nice design , Fast CPU no lag amazing respond , scores 8000-8099 in (Quadrant Standard V:2.1.1) .
Sound is very good from both speakers and the headset , call quality is superb.
Software is unlocked not rooted you will get last updates from SONY , comes with Android Jelly bean 4.1.2 (12.0.A.1.211). updated to 12.0.A.2.245 when you connect to WiFi .
Signal is great on T-Mobile network , 3G and LTE work perfectly .
Battery life is amazing charge it at night use it normally sometimes heavy use till next night and i still have 35-25% , charging is fast ,I am so happy with the battery and the performance .
The phone size is perfect to my mid hand , full control in one hand .
wireless is good no problems at all with a good range .
the phone never gets hot even with heavy load or heavy LTE download or streaming it gets a little worm .
good brightness easy to use in day light .

Cons: I didn't like the display the viewing angles are poor the colors will washed also the contrast will fade , the colors are not vivid (i moved form SGS2 with Super AMOLED Plus) .
The 8 MP camera not that good i saw a much better 8 MP pic from older phones , the front camera is so bad .
The usable RAM is ~766 MB .
The notification LED are cool but will not last long after notified even the battery is high and there is no option to change that .
Sony UI need some time to get use to it (IMO) .
The power button is blocked when use it in car phone holder that annoys me a lot .

Other Thoughts: So unhappy customer with the Delivery I ordered the phone with 2nd day Air (+$) Shipped in10/30/2013 Delivered in 11/04/2013 6:59 P.M (End of the day) ,
5 day from TN to NC !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That is so unacceptable newegg ,0 egg for that service .
I think i will never go with your FAST delivery options .

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Sony Product

Pros: Responsive. Good Battery Life. Just about the right size for a phone. LED flash for the camera.

I like the notification LEDs at the bottom of the phone.

Cons: The on/off button is placed right in the middle on the side. Pretty much where you would hold the phone. I'm getting used to avoiding inadvertently pressing the button when I holding the phone but they could've placed this in a better spot. I use Strava when I jog and not pressing the button while jogging takes a bit of getting used to.

Other Thoughts: This phone is a little heavier than other similar phones but I find that as a positive. Many of my friends have Samsungs and those phone are breaking down like crazy. One of the reasons why I bought a Sony is because I've always like the quality and longevity of their products. The weight of the phone to me tells my it's not a toy nor shoddy. Feels durable.

I'm moving up from the Samsung galaxy S phone that was almost 3 years old. This phone is obviously in a different world as far as performance so I'm very very happy in that respect. That Samsung was falling apart. Hoping Sony put the same quality in this phone as they do with all their other products...

I'm currently on Straight Talk so I'm not using the LTE or 4G yet... Kindof bought it looking forward to using these speeds...
