I'm very pleased with the phone, except minor camera bugs etc. the battery is not very good, it's weak to average, but overall it's a great, stylish phone that i recommend to everyone who wants a quality phone, quality camera and quality screen.Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 9/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 6/10

I would recomend this phone to anyone who is looking for a reliable phone that has got NFC and a good screen and who likes to play a lot of media.And best of all it is very attractive.
It is exremely good looking and everyone asks me what have I got in my hand.The 16Gb memory is enough but if you want more you can get the Xperia S.Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 9/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 8/10

Own this phone for half a year, been doing great, and no major problem with it so far.
I do recommend this mid-range smartphone if you are tight on your budget but wanna enjoy a high-end-like smartphone, You should definitely get the Xperia P! not to forget it's great design.Build quality 9/10Reception 8/10Call quality 9/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 9/10UI speed 8/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 8/10Display 9/10Battery 7/10

Great smartphone, but poor scratch ressistance
Goximus has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I have Nokia N8, and have had a Galaxy SII. This is a great phone for its price, and is the right size, not to small or to big. Camera is not as good as N8 or SII, display is not amoled, so black is not black in the dark. Everything else is as good, or better. Except, it's screen is not scratch resistant at all. I have it for 2 weeks (bought it new), and it already has a lot of scratches. I use it normally, i don't carry it with keys in my pocket. I use it as I use my N8, and have used SII. Nokia N8 is two years old, while I had Samsung for about a year, and screen of Xperia p now looks worse then them. No wonder that the leather bag is in the box.Build quality 8/10Reception 9/10Call quality 9/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 8/10UI speed 8/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 7/10Display 6/10Battery 7/10

Best Android I've used
ryanaryee has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
I have had the Sony Xperia P since about October 2012 and it is the best Android smartphone I have ever used. Before the Xperia P I had 2 Samsung's which were of the low range of the Android Market so having the Xperia P is a big step up. I got it with the ICS update already installed which was handy. The design definitely stands out from many of its other rivals. It is an overall fantastic phone and I would recommend it to anyone looking at itBuild quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 9/10Display 10/10Battery 8/10
- bright display (whitemagic display)
- stand out design (really catches my eye)
- 8mp camera and 1080p recording
- powereful dual core processor
- runs apps with high graphics and has no problem
- HDMI connection to HD dispaly
- great set of specs for it's price
- is compatible with many different media formats
- battery (could've been bigger)
- no SD slot for expanding memory
- would've liked burst shot for camera

it exceeds my expectation
REYNER has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
i just got this phone with ICS in it so i was not able to experience the battery life that is said to be pathetic.. the update seems to be very very helpful esp. in battery department. i am a power user so i always see to it that i have a spare battery on my phone that has a removable battery but in the case of xperia p for me it always last for almost a day in 3g network with active mail and notification but my advice is to turn off the data consumption when your not using it for it will even extend the battery lif of your xperia p..
next build was fantastic its eyepopping and most of the people who are not familiar with this phone leave breathless. UI is good and snappy lag can be found at some area but it will not ruin the entire experience still its a breeze and blazing fast
camera and multimedia was fantastic sounds and camera resolution and clarity exceeds my expectation text input at some point are frustrating coming from lumia 800 but i started to get use to it.. everyday use will not worry you for it performs better that any other mid range phone at this point
this phone is good 16 gb is enough for me and i thing with the price tag in it and the quality of specs its a win-win to any buyer i consider this phone as an upper mid range.Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 8/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 7/10Display 10/10Battery 9/10
- impressive and stylish build!
- white magic display!
- ui speed and experience ( for the price of it its really not that bad!)
- snappy cpu
- auto focus at night or when dark
- no burst shot
- text input
- call reception when calling abroad
- front facing cam how i hope they use at least 1.3mp not vga
