Bought the white one from Adix on 2nd May.

Apart from the screen, the battery life, responsiveness and sound is much better than my previous Xperia.

At first it wasn't really responsive, but after updating to latest version 257 it was much better.

Overall loving this beautiful phone.
Yup, just go to Download for PC - Sony Smartphones (Global UK English) download pc companion and update the lastest firmware. Make sure yr Xperia SP got at least 50% battery power to facilitate the updates!

My tip is wait for the PC show at the end of the month, get Silicon Power. Lifetime warranty.
C4/6/10 is 23.5/25/30.50 last show for 32GB.

Convergent SP Silicon Power MicroSD, SDHC IT SHOW 2013 Price List Brochure Flyer Image

STAY AWAY FROM SANDISK. RUN ROAD IF YOU MUST. THEY ENGINEER THEIR SH*T down to the bare minimum. Somemore 5 years warranty only, and more ex.
Virtualape, just to FYI, my SP mSD died, went to RMA. Was always thinking the C10 32GB had some issues... 12mbps out of the box a bit slow.. esp when my old 16GB went at 17-20mbps.

RMA-ed it, came a new one and this is the speeds that the new C10 mSD did:

Thanks for the tip. Currently using an old sandisk 8gb class 4 on the phone. Working well so far. Silicone Power very competitive pricing

Ic. Not really familiar with the speeds of sd cards. Does it mean a class 10 will write at at least 10 mb/s and read would probably be about 50 mb/s based on simple extrapolation?

Do you own a set too? Any freezes so far on your set? I intend to purchase a set this week, and trying to find out about the wifi and freeze issues beforehand...
Testing out a set of SP for the last 2 weeks.. so good so far except once screen freeze.. buttons are working but not the screen, have to open the back cover and press the reset button.. notice the wifi connectivity is a little weak though

Outside the prices have but not so enticing... Popular roadshow last year had, was like $37.50 when the ITshow 2012 was $32. Elsewhere it was $39.50 at shopping malls..

So you get the idea.

I am trying to register the phone for the online warranty but encountered problem with the serial number.

From the box, I entered the number that says "S/N: xxxxxxxx" but the system doesn't recognizes it.

Seems strange...
