Great phone for the price
tggoulart has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I'm really happy with this phone, I think is really good for its price. Overall, there are some features that I don't think that surprises me, but I was expecting more: the dual-core processor doesn't really make a diference comparing to the 1ghz processor single-core, the display has bright colors but it is not HD and it has no sd card slot which makes a limited memory for the ones who have lots of applications and games.

Beauty and Performance, Best mid range smartphone
punisherftw has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
Xperia U has been with me for more than3 weeks. Looks like a practical midrange phone. Never hanged or caused a problem. The Photo and video quality at first was so bad but after an update it rectified.
Pros: It is very fast and response is excellent.
Display quality is excellent.
Comparatively slim and light and stays flat in your pocket (not slim and light as the Ray)
Matte finished back cover helps to get grip
Browsing web is a joy
Wifi and blutooth are very good
Video quality after the software update became very impressive
Very good photo quality
Impressive battery life (roughly 12 to 15 hrs for avg users)
3g network, video calling and browsing is impressive.
Satisfied with front camera
Cons: The glassy front portion tends to get finger prints and grease
The LED light has no notification function in the stock poduct. You havw to install it from the google play market. (free)
The 2 stage camera button needs some skill to operate. But it is manageable.
No infinite menu slide like samsung galaxy family. You have to install in separately.
Last but not the least- no SD card slot. only 4gb is available. A 50GB of free cloud space is available in "Box" and im satisfied with it. But it cannot replace an SD card.
Look Xperia ray for a phone with sd card slot. But in terms of speed and performance Ray is nothing in front of Xperia U.

XPERIA U is a great value Android phone for budget around USD 300. A fancy phone with illuminating transparent bar and exchangeable bottom caps suits best for those who like to mix and match the phone with their style. The main drawback is the limited storage and if you can't live with that better look for another phone. If you can live with that, this phone will not disappoint you either.Build quality 9/10Reception 10/10Call quality 8/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 7/10Camera 8/10UI speed 8/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 9/10Display 9/10Battery 9/10
- Attractive design with exchangeable bottom cap and transparent bar
- Very good display
- Dual core processor with affordable price
- Front facing camera for video call
- Timescape UI is good looking
- Fancy music player and gallery
- Upgradeable to ICS (as promised by Sony)
- Lack of memory expansion, Users have to stick with the 8 GB internal memory: 2 GB for system, 2 GB for applications, and 4 GB for storage.
- Average camera with stiff camera button
- Low loudspeaker volume

I love Xperia U....:D
Mohit5817 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
If u have a range of Rs16-18k then undoubtdly this is the best phone.With Dual core processor and 512 MB RAM u won't feel compromised in performance. The Nova thor chipset uses the 1320maH battery to work for at least a day.All the apps work fine and the display is the best thing in the phone(280ppi)..UI is very good and the transparent band at the bottom makes the phone super duper amazing..Music player is very similar to the WP ,so that's definitely better than the standard gingerbread.
Overall it is AWEEEESSOOOMEEEE ,,u'll love it.....!!!Build quality 9/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 9/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 9/10

- Music player is excellent
- 3D panoramic photos
- No memory slot
