    • Good but is slow

      I use for more than one year, it's a beautiful and hard to brake but the processor and front facing camera is very poor, the battery can last sometimes less than one day.

    • Nice and curvy design handy phone.

      Nice and curvy design handy phone.
      Main shooter was awesome.
      Selfie cam was useless.
      Internal memory was too low, just 4 Gb
      Ram was average for this type of phone but its kind of smooth, just 1 gb
      I would like to buy it again if it comes with 3gb minimum ram, 64 gb internal and good bright selfie camera.

    • Good smartphone for undemanding

      I buy used for 270 PLN (about 65€). I not demand from it too much, but it has one main weakness: memory for application which is only 1,56 GB. If I update all applicattions i can't download anything. But if I not do this I can download about 20 apps.
      Another weakness of this phone are that it sometimes laggy. Almost everytime when i launch Messenger it comes with Application not responding and want's me to write an opinion. It get's annoying.
      Positives are the music in this phone. I listen to music from this phone everytime I can. Equalizer is very good, but ClearAudio+ function works only in Music/Walkman app from Sony (I using Google Music). I also like design of this phone.

      Limited but functional

      Despite the fact that in its day it had a standard configuration, it fell somewhat short for intensive use, which made it an ideal mobile for older people, children or people who generally make very superficial use of the functions of a smartphone. The design, characteristic of the Xperia of the time, was not particularly beautiful, but it helped the terminal to resist bumps and falls, provided they were not excessively strong.

      Pros
      • Resistance
      • Simplicity
      Cons

      good old sony

      I liked the fact that the phone has not the usual design (curved shape), not a bad camera for 2013. compact, the shell is not loaded too much. barely enough for a day.

    What is a Ki score?
    Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
    How do we calculate the Ki?

    In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

    • Design and screen
    • Hardware and performance
    • Camera
    • Connectivity
    • Battery

    Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.

    Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.

    Does the Ki score change?

    The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
