I sold my iphone 5 back in September to get this phone, but Sony can learn a thing or two from Apple regarding after sales care.
Rings have fallen off buttons and headphone jacks and on my phone my speaker grille curled up and fell off - yes believe it or not, but it's a piece of plastic mesh and it will show it's disdain to the waterproofing quality of the phone as soon as it's had one too many skinny dips in the bath with you...
My screen cracked spontaneously out on an extended holiday in South Africa and unlike an IPhone the few hairline cracks made the screen go mad so it was unusable and u like Apple the service centre simply refused to even look at it unless I paid R4,000 which is £280.
Sony refused to fix it under warranty as the phone was a UK model and I had to courier it back to the UK then wait ages for somebody to bring it along again.
So yes... I love the phone but it's made really poorly of what seems like good materials but not really.
Although I won't ever go back to Apple, when a compliment is due it's due. No phone's construction was ever as good as the iPhone 4/4S...
