Great phone, totally me proof!
i've done it all with this phone, dropped it on the floor on water, kids played with it, gone to the beach, my dog even bite it just like the commercial, and still nothing wrong with it, beautiful resilient piece of technology that swept me away and puts me in awe, love Sony!

Miss leading Phone
Lots of issues with phone.
1. Misleading advertise that it comes with in-box 2 GB microSD Card., When you open a box no microSD card found in it.
2. It will show battery full 100 % but cannot last for more than half hour.
4. When called customer care, they have worst customer service in retail and very very un-professional
After this back experience its better to return phone back to SONY.

Good phone with terrible battery life.
It was my second phone from Sony. My first Xperia X1 was balanced and reliable. At first I really liked the new phone, fine design, high contrast screen, great sound.
But the battery is discharged in a few hours. I did everything that was recommended for the support page.
Thereafter I had only one short (5 min) call, and a couple of SMS and the battery is completely discharged in a day, without the Internet, music, video, photos, games, reading books.
I did not expect this is crude product from my favorite brand and upset about it.

I bought this phone for work and I am glad I did. The phone is smaller than I thought it would be but big enough to enjoy the screen. It is thin and light - about half the thickness and weight of my iPhone 4. The screen is fantastic and durability is good. I think the screen on my Xperia Advance is equal to or greater than the iPhone 4 even though the phone itself is smaller. The phone is well constructed.
Having said all that, one of the issues I have with the phone is the battery is totally unpredictable. All things being roughly equal the battery is quirky. Some days it will use 20% of the battery, other days it will use 100% of the battery - doing roughly the same tasks and for about the same amount of usage. Sometimes I have 80% battery at night when I go to bed and then only 25% when I wake up and not enough time to charge it before I go to work.
Also, there is no mute switch like the iPhone. Sony should put that into every Xperia phone.
One more thing - you can only turn it on by hitting the "on" button on the top of the phone. I would like to be able to turn it on with another point of contact on the phone.
Other than that, I love this phone. Very cool, stylish, durable, great screen and colors, lots of ringtones. I don't need the water resistant functions but it is nice to be able to have it near my sink when I am in the bathroom shaving or brushing my teeth and not have to worry about my phone.
Well done, but Sony can make it better pretty easily. I think they will. I recommend it in spite of the few flaws. I would buy it again.
