Worked for a time
on 28 June 2014
I have had this phone for 10 months. To begin with it was fine and I was impressed. However I have found it to be problematic and not as easy to navigate as my previous Xperia (bottom of the range) in terms of downloading music, transferring files etc. The phone looks good and the screen is fine. It is very slow to respond but maybe you get what you pay for. When I press the home button, often it will take a good 5-10 seconds to actually get there. I am frequently turning it off, taking the battery out etc to try to solve this. It recently has gone very wrong, telling me there was no storage space, despite taking off all non-essential apps and deleting all of my texts and only using half the storage on the phone. THis meant the phone stopped working really, apart from being able to make calls; texts were not getting through and I kept getting messages to tell me there were texts waiting. I also have a 32Gb memory card in so I had PLENTY of storage. In the end I had to take the phone back to factory settings and start again. 2 weeks on and the phone is doing the same thing. The camera has been playing up for a while with lots of pictures not coming out, just a black screen when I go into gallery. At the time it looks as though they have taken but after a couple of hours they disappear and the thumbnail is just black. It has periodically decided to not allow me to make calls, so I have to take the battery out and try again and then it seems to work, but yoj shouldn't need to do this.
So the phone was OK for about 4 months and after that, it has been very frustrating and I have had enough and am off to buy a new one that will hopefully do what it says on the tin.
