http://forums.androidcentral.com – Hi peeps, What is the general feedback on Sony's 2012 phones? i own an Xperia Neo V, and my personal experience is that it's -- slow: loading messages and contacts take inexplicably long -- buggy: the built-in apps hang, the audio suddenly goes out for no reason(so far i've been able to remedy it by slapping it gently), signal reception doesn't seem that good...and when it loses signal, it takes a long time for it to recover. Needless to say i'm looking for a replacement. i've initially sworn off Sony but i'd like to keep an open mind. Either that or get a Sammie. tia (HowTos)
