I expect more from Sony..
The phone is really stylish and nice to look at and hold, but start using it and you change your mind. The screen is not brilliant, lacks smoothness and feels as if it is easily scratchable, but no scratchs so far. it is a good size though and things look good on it. The real problem is certain lack of responsiveness and stuttering during operation. It certainly can use a more powerful CPU or more RAM or both. I had a much lower spec HTC explorer with only 600 Mhz CPU and much less RAM, but it was running much more smoothly on Android 3.6 (I think it's gingerbread). I thought that this one with 1Ghz processor and 512Mb RAM would be much better, but it's running android Ice Cream Sandwich v4.0.4 which is just barely able to cope with.The front cam, the micro SD slot and normal size SIM slot are all bonuses. I am keeping it as my son is happy with it, but can't recommend it really.Not sure whether future upgrade to Jelly Bean is on the cards and if it would improve responsiveness, I guess not. If anything, newer OSs are usually more, not less, demanding on the hardware.
