I am using Nokia USB cable,will it be inferior as compared to the Sony one?
Actually all branded cables in the market can supply the ~1A current needed to charge smartphones at normal speeds. Some of them don't work on other brands because of the lack of standardization of how the pins in the connector are wired between brand to brand.

What you can do is go to Settings -> About Device -> Status, look under Battery status. If charging at normal speed, you should see Charging (AC).

Few issues: how to stop vibration when using keyboard? I go to setting->sound->untick vibrate on touch oso no avail.
2ndly: how to turn off the last 15% batt on red intermittent blinking light from flashing?

thanks in advance.
setting->sound->untick vibrate on touch --> yes, this is correct. Maybe you try to off and on the handset.

2nd part, not too sure.

Is there a setting to enable vibration for incoming watsapp sms? Can't find the setting --> managed to solve it.

approximately 20mins to full charge at 75%. Im using original charger and cable. I notice it takes longer if I am using a 3rd party cable. Maybe cos I am using a cheapo cable.

Not surprising it takes longer to charge than iphone as the battery capacity is much larger. iphone 4s is 1450mAh vs SP 2370mAh.
Thanks. Was thinking why it is so slow. Bought this Nillkin Leather Cover at 33 Yen (~7 SGD). Free screen protector and pen.

The left and right sides of the phone is actually slightly tapered in if you view from the top/bottom of the phone thus the power button isn't exactly flat or parallel to the sides of the phone. I thought my power button was crooked also at first. haa.

Same situation as you here... phone cannot be used properly since buying it on 10 May due to the touchscreen issue. No 1-1 exchange even though it was a 6 day old set. Went into service centre for 2nd time on 23 May, still there now. Complained to them via multiple emails, and all they did was to get the service centre to call me to send in the phone again for "inspection".

First Sony I bought and it turns out to be a damn sour lemon - and the worst part is that it's meant as a gift. Imagine having to keep taking back a gift due to it malfunctioning, and you will know how I am feeling. Seriously expected better service and support after all the praises of Japanese brand here.

I must be lucky then after seeing people have problems with touchscreen(my main concern)

Anyway...is it ok to uninstall the mcafee antivirus on xperia sp?
I'm not a fan of mcafee **** brand of anti virus.

Also any free and good antivirus on google app store?

All apps you can see in the Downloaded list can be uninstalled.

Generally the most praised free android antivirus app is Avast Antivirus. Personally using Comodo Antivirus on my Sony phone because I need the SMS keyword spam filter.

Some sample shots from the SP. Normal mode with HDR on. Decent for the 8mp cam for day shots with abit of noise in the shadowy sections.
