The expandable memory is useful and having been Blackberry for a year beforehand
on 23 February 2016
after initial setup issues, the phone has been reliable and quick since the start. The expandable memory is useful and having been Blackberry for a year beforehand, the android world is a welcome return.
A couple of issues -
1) I took it underwater for less than 20secs. The phone stopped working for a day and would not boot up. I left it off for a long while and it started to work again. I would not recommend taking it under water.
2)The charging port cover gasket has been peeling off and twists so it doesnt close properly. It is fiddly and annoying but necessary if it is to be water proof - which it isnt, so would rather another way of dealing with it.
3) Its not on EEs listed wi-fi calling phones - not Sony's fault but annoying nonetheless.
4) The biggest issue for me is typing. The keyboard is tiny and I often hit the wrong keys rendering it useless of emails of any substance.
I do like the display, and performance. I like the expandable memory and the camera is pretty good - only let down by the screen (but only a little).
Overall, i am happy with it and prefer it to an iPhone. It was not as clear or smart as my BB Passport, but is has been reliable and easy to use - not to mention pretty robust!
