i have purchased this phone yesterday at 9.30 PM,my eagerness to look into it made me to put an alarm n get up at 5 a.m(after 8 hrs of charging), for the past 5 hrs i have downloaded nearly 40 apps at great speed, no hanging at all and battery is down only 18%, i have used samsung S3, eventhough xperia sl doesnt features everything in S3, i feel like it have much better battery life ,speed (1.7) ,cam and screen clarity. I just love it, a great phone

Next to no one knows of these phones and everyone is impressed that I show it too. great picture, easily synced to my pc via wifi so I can watch all my movies and hear all my tunes. I can't stand ios and the regular droids were getting boring and samsungs are just ugly... this phone is a beath of fresh air.
The only minro thing is that the icon buttons on the bottom of the phone go dim after a few seconds of using them so if you are using the phone in darkness its hard to tell which button is which at first. But im sure ill get used to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TalesofGraces Fantastic phone, with few hiccups.
I've had this phone for little over a month, running with Straight Talk through AT&T and I really enjoy the phone. Coming from Windows Phone Android was a different experience. This phone tickled my fancy because I really enjoy Sony products and the price was right for a new Unlocked Phone.
The screen is beautiful, I'll say that. With the crisp resolution and beautiful colors, it really does a great job at showing everything. The speaker on the back with the xLoud technology does get very loud, however I worry about blowing it out occasionally.
The front and rear facing camera both work really well for taking pictures, and Google+ hangouts work perfectly with the front facing camera (Just don't expect the battery to last too terribly long while video chatting).
Everything works really well, and the PSM store, while still new, works great! Haven't downloaded any games yet, but I will once some look appetizing.
The screen scratches a little too easily. You can't see the scratches unless you look really closely, but just putting the phone in and out of my jeans pocket has left two scratches, or it could have been from a cleaning cloth.
The capacitive buttons on the strip work when you exactly(!) tap them on the dot, otherwise they sorta kinda don't work. It would have been great had a larger area been used for recognizing your finger, but you'll get used to it eventually.
The auto-correct is pretty underwhelming, coming from Windows Phone it saddens me. (This may just be a fluke of Android, and not the phone itself though).
I still haven't found a way to set a ringtone or music clip for a text message sound, and notice that since these phones are not from a carrier, the selection of ringtones or text blips are only about 6 or so total.
This is a great phone, yes it's not the fastest or best newest phone model, but it really does well with what it has to offer. Incredibly stable, with only a few weird audio problems (Will occasionally cause music to pause while loading pages), but other than that no problems at all!

I am concerned about the battery drain on all smart phone. I was very pleased to find in this model the programmable feature for energy saving (ex. for activation at night, with automatic turning off data or wifi transmission and other energy consuming operations that are not really needed at night). That's smart and a nice work around to weak batteries on phones.

I got this phone two months back(after much thinking of other phones like s3 or iphone), I slowly started to feel some problems with my phone but that's not worrying me . the image quality and the battery life is much better than the other xperia family. the only things which worry in the phone is when you play games it get heated very soon.. Its normal in this phone.
Overall an excellent phone you can rely on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ARefaat love this phone
this phone is awesome. the pink color matches pretty close to my sony vaio s 13.3 lap top. the phone looks great very cool looking the clear bar at the bottom really sets it apart from all other phones. works great. only bad thing is the screen lock / power button is in a bad position at the top right edge of the phone so need to use both hands to press it. would have been better to put that button on the right middle edge for ease.
