Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great for one-handed use
Because of the compact size and the rounded sides, the phone feels very comfortable even if you have small hands. The 4.6-inch screen is just the right size for one-handed use.
Pro Performance is good enough for average use
The performance is on par with most mid range phones today, meaning it should be enough for everyday uses.
Pro Able to shoot really high quality pictures
The 23 MP sensor, wide lens and laser autofocus system brings very impressive results. The camera captures plenty of detail, but may lack some saturation (though it’s easy enough to fix in post-processing).
The auto mode nails the settings correctly most of the time. The autofocus works great even with moving objects, as the camera continuously tracks the object to maintain a sharp image.
Con Glossy exterior attracts fingerprints
The phone’s outer case is made with a glossy plastic that mimics a ceramic look. Unfortunately, the glossy finish is a fingerprint magnet and scratches easily over time.
Con Comes with pre-installed bloatware
Bloatware from Sony pre-installed, but you can disable and remove most of them.
