Advantages: Very good camera quality.
Disadvantages: Too much apps can cause the phone freezing and slowing down.
I think it was around September last year when i decided to buy this phone. I loved the way you get to change the bottom bar to many colors: White, yellow, pink and black. I got given the pink and the black one when i bought the phone. I first used the pink one for a bit then decided to change it to a black.
One of the things that i really love about this phone is that when your listening to music and you press the unlock button it straight slides to a widget on the lock screen that allows you to pause the music and change it. Talking about music, i also love the way they set the music gallery out. You can also add favorites etc.
The camera is one of the best things about this phone although the front camera is not as good unless your outside, which your always not. The normal view camera is very detailed and is High Quality (HQ). Same for video's, again the front camera is not as good and the normal view camera. There is also 2 3D-camera's which i really could not find the time to use yet but I'm guessing its good.
Another thing about this phone that really made me buy this phone is the fact that it is waterproof. If you are the kind of person that isn't responsible for handling phone's and you drop them frequently then i suggest this because you never know were exactly you are going to drop it. I dropped it in a puddle like a couple of months ago and i was glad that nothing happened.
It is an android phone so you get to take the advantage of Google play store, now android used to have its own market but thank god that Google bought it. There is most apps you can probably find in the apple play store however one very popular iPhone(iPod and Ipad) app that android yet does not have is 'Cam Wow' and that's a shame. Be careful, too much apps can mess up the phone, by that i mean freezing and slowing down, my phone only freezed 2 times since iv got it and i used to have a hell load of games.
You can shot pictures even quicker with the Sony xperia. when your phone is locked, simply press hold of the camera button and it will open up the camera and take a picture for you.
Another very cool thing is that while your talking with someone on the phone, you can 'Multi-task' basically when your talking on the phone you can press the home or back button and it will go to the main screen. You can even play games whilst your taking, baring in mind that you wont be able to hear the person your talking with unless there on loud speaker or earphones. Another thing is that you can also turn the lock button to a 'hang up' button when you are talking with someone on the phone. You will be able to find it in the call settings.
On the bottom of the front screen you have 4 slots to put things that you want to access quickly the things you use the most.
The color of the led bar changes, for example when your on pictures, i think it just picks out the main color from there and uses it in the led bar. However if you get annoyed of the led bar then simply download 'screen filter' from app store make sure the 'enable soft-key backlight' (on the app) is without a tick. Then you just have to press 'enable screen filter' and then your done. But, you still get the light on pictures and when your on the music application.
Summary: It is an amazing phone.
