It is now availble for just 4 dollars in pakistan. I am looking for a secondary phone only for call and sms. I really like xperia phone from 2012-2013 is it good choice for sms and call.

Well, first time posting here. My smartphone venture started with the Xperia Ray, great little device sadly capabilities were very slow. SX was a breath of fresh air, I have been using the SX since it's release in 2012 and I have to say it's been a very reliable phone and it still is. Fast forward 6 years to present, I'm finally retiring it in favor of probably the last truly compact flagship phone the Xperia XZ1 Compact, had Sony kept releasing the compact series the way it was i would have probably waited a bit longer. The SX and I had a very good run.

1 year since my last comment, and I was the last person to comment here. One my last trip to Japan I noticed a lady still using this phone. The phone is still actually usable in 2017, though app compatibility is getting worse for android 4.1.

This era of this phone is coming to an end. While the size and convience, and superior one handed use will never go out of date - the battery, camera and android version are pushing this phone to irrelavancy. Modern apps which can still run on Android 4.1 are getting heavier - and while they still run ok - they drain the battery faster than ever. While the phone is definitly not dead yet. I think its probably in its last year of usefulness now. Though carefull planning, rooting, selective app use , maybe longer.

Felas pls confirm that the infrared port can be used with dedicated apk as a TV remote. Has anyone ever checked that?
Help me find a shop where I can buy this handset for less then 300€? Where did you get yours from?

Cyanogenmod is not possible - though Android 4.1 is not bad, still very usable and compatible in 2015/2016

Amazingly small and light, but still packs enough punch to be useable even today. It's a shame the smartphone industry seems to be running in the complete opposite direction, with oversized, heavy phablets dominating the top end, and cheap junk with garbage specs populating the lower end.

Its funny that after 3years this is still the best small phone you can buy with decent specs, only the iphone4/5 come close but they are still bigger and heavier. I'm still using this as my daily driver. i tried a Z1 compact to replace this, but it feels giant compared to the SX. Battery life on the SX is pretty bad and you really have to modify the stock Android os with rooting and exposed framework to make it run smooth, but its worth it.

Thanks for your answer about the usage in germany!

what does "DD" "using it for >1 year as DD" mean?

Does it HSDA HSUPA in 3G ?

  • Anonymous

Yes it works in Germany; but it needs to be unlocked by Docomo. Data is limited to 3G since it only has antennas for the Japanese LTE band.
AFAIK there is no update available aside from the Docomo ROMs (Android 4.1.2). Upside: the phone is still reasonably fast. Been using it for >1 year as DD, I still like it.
