4.0 out of 5 stars Decent phone.. don't be worried. 21 Feb 2013
Colour Name:Black
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)

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice style, shame about the lag 18 Sep 2013
By Reviewify.co.uk HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Colour Name:Black
Length: 2:31 Mins
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Got this for the wife and she loves it. 23 Nov 2012
Colour Name:Black
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

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent phone, with a few tweaks... 17 Dec 2012
Colour Name:Black
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good and cheap phone 25 Nov 2012
By Zanis
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
Recently get this nice phone. It's stylish,slim and great build phone. I was looking for a cheap smartphone on Android for calls,messages and wifi.

Pros: (just in my opinion)
+Great quality screen
+Gorilla Glass
+Size and weight
+Good sound quality (it's loud enough for me)

-Not fastest CPU and RAM (just 1Ghz)
-Does not support 720p videos even with another player from GooglePlay (it plays 480p clips-no big difference between 720p)
-Sometimes it's laggy (thanks to slow CPU)

Would not reccomend this phone for them who are looking for a powerful phone for HD games,HD videos and many many multiple tasks. This one is basic smartphone for a people who wants to get big and quality screen,for a good sound and cheap price. It could be your best first Android phone for a basic tasks!
