User opinions and reviews

I never buy Xperia again. One day it didn't light anymore. Like other Xperia, bricked.

  • Kaykay

I had such bad experience with my Sony Xperia Z1 compact that I have sworn off Sony Xperia phones for life. My phone died around 1.5 to 2 years of very careful use. Battery got swollen after a year. I think the only Sony Mobile with great reviews is ...

I used it like for 3 months and one day it just turned off and never turned on again, logic card just got damage and fixing it cost a lot. Always have been a sony cell phone but this one really disappointed me
