Sony Xperia U review: Fun united

8 June 2012
The Xperia S has all the spotlight to itself in the NXT series, but history has taught us that Sony (and previously Sony Ericsson) can do wonders in the compact class. In two generations of minis and the Xperia ray, the Japanese have delivered packages that no one in the same price range can beat...

Worst phone making product of Sony xperia u last one year I'm using the model water and not any damages but not working WiFi Bluetooth and fm mother board so waste so please don't buying the model

I have a love / hate relationship with this phone. Generally it works pretty well however every month or so I need to do a total reset on it so that it can re-connect with wifi. The reset involves backing everything up and then resetting the OS to the factory state. It does not seem to have enough ram to run the current google maps app reliably. It seems unlikely that sony will update the OS past 4.0.3.

Slightly bigger screen but same resolution and still a budget-to-midrange model. Some aspects are a sidegrade or even downgrade though - e.g. colour rendition, and internal storage available given that apps are not able to be stored on microSD. Update to 4.3 currently being rolled out.

Sony did a big mistake by closing the manufacturing of xperia uu they should update it by providing facilities of external memory and its new android version with 1 gb ram

In the Above link it has a Back side image of Sony Xperia U.

On the bottom of a Phone there is a port which is covered by cap.

Anyone please tell me for what that port is used.

DAS, 08 Oct 2013How can I make a video call?3G video calling is a network specific function, and not supported on the Xperia U. However Skype and other preinstalled and downloadable applications allow video calling via the secondary front-facing camera to others with compatible software installed on their phone, laptop or desktop.

abck, 16 Jan 2014 Its got external memory or not (previous attempt to reply got moderated, perhaps due to weblink to FAQ)

The Xperia U has 8GB of built-in flash memory, and is not internally expandable. Of that, 4GB is available via USB (MTP protocol) for music, video, images etc. 2GB is reserved for phone storage, such as text messages and some applications - many applications are able also to use the main 4GB area. The remaining 2GB is hidden and used exclusively by the Android operating system. So the total memory available to users is 6GB, though only 4GB of that is directly accessible. Mentions of 56GB refer to the availability of an additional 50GB free on-line "cloud" storage.

How to make video call or 3G????

  • userXperia

Love this phone!!!! No lags after all and performance is awesome. Those people who are complaining, get your phone rooted and install roms and autokiller memory optimizers. If you can't stand your phone being lag then go buy HTC desire c or wildfire s. Then see their worst performance. Kthxbai
