Had this handset for about a month now (shipped in from Japan).

Hate to say it but the phone is trash, the processor has not been optimized at all.

Pretty much all the problems on the sony forum I've got but I decided to take the risk anyway.

A quick review

Positives
- Screen
- Camera
- Design

Negatives
- Walkman Player Crashing
- Battery life originally lasting a few days now no more than a day
- Memory leakage
- Laggy
- Strange bugs such as Walkman player assigning my own pictures as album covers
- Chrome crashing or keyboard not launching when pressing search

To get anything out of this junk several restarts are required. When the Walkman player crashes it no longer plays music so you have to reset the phone.

To begin with the phone was great which probably explains the positive reviews. I'm thinking of re-flashing the software every two weeks using Sony -Update service to try and get some stable use.

Guys, need more input on this phone. I'm planning to upgrade to this phone from Asus Zenfone 5 because of the wild nature of the Intel processor (mostly about apps incompatibility). I like the big screen, but just wondering about the RAM, is 1 GB enough? I'm quite a heavy user on my phone. I use it to type on Microsoft Mobile, and do presentation via miracast, play some games, browse and read pdf. At max I'm already down to 400 MB of RAM left on random check.

I'm fresh out of Windows Phone, so just wondering if Android is still a resource hog after all these updates.

I wouldn't touch anything with less than 1.5GB RAM at this point in Android unless it's a Motorola Moto or a Google One device.

Thanks, I think I might just hold it off for a moment first.

Forget T2! Go and catch the Z Ultra! Much better, a real highend flagship! And it costs sooooo cheapppp now!!!

T2 has no 1080p, no Snapdragon 800, only 1GB RAM, only 8GB ROM, plastic body, no waterproof...

I have two Ultras, my brother also got one. I'm very happy.

I tried many many new other devices but no one has a chance vs the Ultra! I always came back to Ultra. Had Z2, OneplusOne and many more...

If you don't need a good cam and can live with the size then its perfect for you!

When I buy a new device then only the Ultra successor, nothing else!

Sadly I need the dual sim... From Sony, the T2 Ultra seems the best choice around from any angle (battery life, camera, screen size, specs).
