I bought it just when it was lauched in India.
The phone could be a excellent one unless thie sony guys had put atleast a 2000mAh battery. This is not a good one for even normal use. The battery sucks!!! The battery drains even after you dont use it for hours. BATTERY SUCKS..How an SONY makes such a blunder?????

Good day everyone.

I need some opinion and recommendation.
Currently I'm in a very deep dilemma on whether to buy Xperia P or Xperia S.
I really love the NXT design of both phone.
I'm more to Xperia P as the 3 capacitive keys are built on the transparent strip itself, unlike the Xperia S which got 3 small dots above the strip instead.
This design consideration is very important to me, as much as I love the HD screen and the superior chipset, but only due to this design quirk makes me choose Xperia P.

Price is not a factor as I can get both at roughly the same price in my place which is around 200USD.

All of your input are greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance :)

I like Sony Xperia P for many reasons like white magic,mobile bravia engine,walkman,light in weight.The things that really makes me upset are mobile data traffic rate and tethering hotspot error.While I use mobile data traffic,I realize that other phones are better than mine.I wish Sony will produce better mobile data traffic rated phones.

What's the price of your XP when you bought it that time? And in what country?

  • MM

I'd say it's has awesome and unique features but then the problem is the BATTERY :))

BTW, just wanted to ask for those people who have already purchased it and has been using it, what was the original price of XP when it was newly released? And the price today? :)
