I was excited to own this little piece of fairly good looking touch screen smartphone.


Pros:




  • Brand equity of Sony




  • Sub 10K deal for the entry level smartphone






Cons




  • Bulkiness of the phone




  • Chunky design




  • Extremely difficult to use Message Pad; even to On the phone and call up the numbers




  • Freaky touch screen: perhaps its something to deal with the phone cover on the new instrument; the touchscreen is intuitive and smooth.




  • Features usage: its not intuitive: meaning phone doesnt take up the touch properly leading to multiple attempts to use any of the features




  • Worst: to send the sms






Havent tried out the net connectivity and other aspects; but its real big pain to use this phone. Perhaps would have tried out a HTC or so.am not sure


But after using the phone for a while and after installing a particular patch the phone works superbly. Its definitely a value item in sub10K category of smartphones. Wonder why this recurring issue of touch screen on Xperia platform is not attended by Sony itself so far.
