It gets really bad..

I have it now like 3 Years, It gets really Slower and you'll get annoyed because you just can't do anything with the Phone right now, because there are now a lot better Phones with the same Price, just don't buy this Phone anymore.

One of the best Android smartphone.

Rezaul has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

Really, I like the design of Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman. No doubt, it is one of the best-looking smartphone. It is powered by a fast Qualcomm CPU with a built-in powerful GPU. It is fast, smart, compatible and comfortable. Though I used some much expensive Android and Windows smartphones from 2009, I really feel comfortable with it at 2011 to 2012. It is more than compatible with all kinds of Android games only if that game is not depends on operating system versions. It is one of the best multimedia smartphone and I found some false information in some online reviews about this issue. The true is it is capable of delivering too loud HD sounds with effects, it is really a smart device for entertainment, displays more colors with effects and plays movies without making any problem. It is a true Walkman smartphone. It comes with a camera, which is good enough for a smartphone. It has 3D camera features with built-in flash and auto focus. Its image quality is too good comparatively but sizes small. A 5 megapixels shot with auto flash and auto focus captures a photo that is very good. Even when I compared its captured images with some of the 8 megapixels powered smartphones, I found my 5 megapixels really did a great job. Unbelievably it is better than some smartphones with 8 megapixels! The actual HD video quality is very good and records rushing objects smoothly. Strong Wi-Fi, better connectivity, cool user interface, many sensors, Android 4.0 OS and too many features makes...
