I bought this phone with the same worries others probably had such as,
1. Will it lag with it's single core CPU?
2. Will it freeze if i run more than one application at a time?
3. Will it have an obvious problem that irritates me?

I can safely say that none of these things pose any problem with this phone. The single core cpu that worried me so much actually does a very good job at running the phone very smoothly. I know some people on the older reviews have complained of some lag, but i think Sony updated the software since and it has sorted that issue out nicely. The phone browses around its menus and home screens without any glitches and i can also confirm that apps such as facebook, youtube, twitter and Chrome etc also work nicely without any freezing. I must say this phone has excellent battery life (rare with smartphones these days) battery life similar to the old 2G phones that would last several days.

The camera: Completely rubbish, I actually laughed when i tried it out it's comical. Supposed to be 5MP but my tablets 3MP camera puts this one to shame. It's more like one of the older 1.3MP cameras. Not a phone for the people who care about their picture taking. Loses 1 star for this.

The Walkman and sound quality from headphones is very good. Loud speaker is fairly decent in this price range too.
Also the 4 inch screen looks fantastic. Really bright and clear.

If your looking for a good android on a budget that just works an allows you to do most things a smartphone does then i think this phone suits your needs well enough. (Have not tested it's performance on demanding games)

I like Sony handsets, they tend to do a good job and look a little different. The Xperia J has a nice, curved, design which is let down a little by it feeling a bit on the plastic side. It's a nice size and will fit well in most peoples hand.

The screen is nice and crisp to look at, but is let down by being a bit unresponsive (for example when swiping menus it doesn't seem as instant as it should). The camera is OK, but a bit of a let down considering cameras are something Sony generally do well. It's fine for the odd snap, but if you're looking for a handset that can also be a dedicated camera this is probably not the handset for you.

If you're looking for a budget Android handset that has a nice style to it then you'll likely be very happy with this phone. Would suggest seeing if you can play with one in a phone store first to make sure you're happy with it in the hand.

Compared to I phones and top end htc or Sony etc this cannot compare. But for a cheaper smartphone with nice size screen and functionality it's great. Looks the business and 1ghz processor seems quite nippy to me. No problems here and camera seems decent enough for our general use. Anyway this will be mainly used as a phone not a plaything. If you can accept the slight compromises of a cheaper smartphone I don't think you will be in any way disappointed

After reading the reviews of this phone - good, bad and indifferent, I decided to trust the brand and hope that this mobile would work for me. And it certainly does! It is much faster than my previous one (HTC Wildfire S), has much sharper definition on the screen and looks good. I particularly like the intuitive way the phone operates - I've never had a Sony mobile before (and I'm not a techie) but I found it easy to work out how it operates on a basic level. It also has a far better battery life than my last one (but that wouldn't be hard!) with it needing to be charged every 2 / 3 days, although I am a light user.

There is a great deal more the phone does - more than I need - but I will explore these extras over time.

For now I'm just pleased I bought this particular phone and model because it more than satisfies my needs and wasn't too expensive.

I have now had this phone for 2 months on contract.

I got it silly cheap on voda, less than 20 notes a month, so i am not that bothered about the price if im honest.

I upgraded from a blackberry bold and let me tell you, wow what a difference.

The 1st month i had it, i absolutely hated it. I still hate texting on it, in fact i have found i despise touch screens entirely and i miss my qwerty keyboard, but that is a personal preference, nothing to do with the phone.

So then, response times.

Turning on the phone, pain in the neck, you press and hold the power button until it vibrates and then it takes 30 seconds to load. I don't know why i find this frustrating but i do.

The screen for me also is unresponsive at times, i have found the trick to it when it wont do anything is to just press the power button to hibernate the screen for 30 seconds and then turn it back on. Job done. No problems at all.

Music, some people have complained that their music isn't loud enough and for that reason alone have given the phone 1 star. Ridiculous.

There is a trick to making it louder but the problem isn't with the phone but with the headphones which are absolutely awful. They are stiff, not comfortable and tend to sit outside of the ear, even though they are supposed to be in ear headphones.

I replaced my headphones with some ones I had bought to go with my iPod and they work perfectly. They are not a hands free headset though so you need to take them out of your ears to answer calls, but personally i don't mind doing that as I detest the spaciness of hands free voice calls.
