Quality product in cheap price
Phone owned for more than a year

One of the sexiest design like those Nokia Lumia 800 or N9.
Camera is just amazing. I dont feel like to hang my camera around my neck now.
I saw my clicks on HDTV Via DLNA and results were not at all disappointing Neither they were on Mac Book Pro(Retina Display).

I switched from iPhone to Xperia Neo - No Regrets!
Phone owned for less than a year

Previously owned 2 iPhones (3G and 4S) I couldn't take the poor phone reception quality (constantly dropped calls) any more but most of all I found that having to use iTunes for everything very slow and restricting...Apple seemed to dictate my every move!

I got an Xperia Neo and soon decided that this mid-range smartphone from Sony is so much better than the top of the range iPhone. I am baffled how so many people still think iPhone is so great when there are companies like Sony coming up with such amazing products!

The Neo is great and never fails, camera shoots stunning pics and with 'Media Go' I can just drag & drop large files and music into the phone in minutes (takes hours with iTunes).

All in all this is a great phone. The only slight disapointment is the small internal storage, but I installed a 32GB Micro SD card and now it is fine.

The Neo is also tough and i have dropped it a few times without any problems.

It is also a beautiful design and looks great.

My next phone will definetly be a Sony....probably the Xperia S.
