Decent phone.. don't be worried.
on 21 February 2013
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)
