I've had mine for a few weeks now and I'm impressed with it. One thing to watch out for is the internal storage. It is advertised as 4GB but only 1GB is available to the user. This seriously limits how many apps you can use especially because Jelly Bean does not allow moving apps to the SD card. Also note that this phone has no ambient light sensor and no LED notification light, not a deal breaker but odd things to leave out. The phone also does not come with headphones. I still think it is the best water proof phone in the price range. Otherwise its an excellent phone. I got mine to replace my Sony Xperia Go and it beats the Go in all respects except possibly looks. I like Sony's software better too.
