User opinions and reviews

My 5th phone and my first smartphone, I use it for 6 years since I bought it new in 2012. The only reason I replaced it with my Xperia Z3 Compact was because life has badly battered it. I love this phone.

I bought mine new in 2012, used it until 2018. The only reason I stop using it because it is badly battered by life. It still works though.

i used this phone for 7 years and its being used by my dad its a durable phone but not that much reliable the OS lags alot I had to get a custom rom for it to work properly the GPS takes 1 hour to work and thats a design flaw in all of Sony's mobile ...
