Decent build quality, Vibrant screen, Mostly vanilla Android.
Excellent camera with good low light performance, sleek design, responsive touch-screen, deep Facebook integration, HDMI out.
Refined, signature design, Outstanding call/audio quality, Punchy colors with the Mobile Bravia engine.
Two minute boot time, Native camera app over compresses images, Hard to type accurately, especially in portrait.
Occasional lags when switching or opening programs, touch-screen keyboard difficult to use, making a call is long-winded, Timescape widget is fiddly and only good for Facebook users.
Disappointing battery life, Below average sunlight legibility.
