User opinions and reviews

  • Phone guy

Yeah that’s because Sony uses their update centre, Sony removed the services for I think it was android 5.0 and above and now uses android’s updater

  • PhoneLover

I like this phone ... the battery is long lasting even though I have used it for 10 years ... but the RAM is very small .. only 512MB so when playing the game it will lag badly ... the game I installed is First Touch Soccer 2015. .. only a few games ...
