    Overall: The Sony Xperia E1 dual is the worst phone that you get after paying your hard earned money. There are lots of problems in the phone with only few advantages, but the advantages fades with the long list of issues. The issues are listed below. This is review is after using the phone for 3 months

    Lack of RAM makes multitasking a headache. The performance went worst after the KitKat Update.
    Heating Issue while connected to 3G network.
    Freezes randomly.
    Random restart during call, standby, using app. No change even after KitKat Update
    Call log takes a minute to load.
    Google chrome just washes out to white screen in between browsing and then the phone freezes.

    Overall: I bought E1 dual about 1 week... Before rewiewing , Know this ,"BE SURE WHAT YOU WANT IN A PHONE AND WHAT YOU DON'T" Here is what i liked about it.
    1. The dedicated walkman key can be used to open music player, play pause next and play a random song right away without taking phone out of your pocket .
    2. Feels good... review says its flipcover is cheap plastic... yes its cheap but not that much that you would notice...
    3. Good music enhancements with clear audio equalizer....etc
    4. you can download original songs for free from sony jive.
    5.Display is average
    6. "Quick" is the word best suited for the phone
    7. Plays 720p at a good speed and 1080 at equal speed but might lag depending on the ram free in the phone
    8. Snapdraqon 200 is good
    9. Dual sim of this phone can make you use 3g from either of the sims at a time.
    and Here is what i don't like about the phone.
    10. It's SONY!!!!!!
    1. Ram is 512 mb so there are little problems when you install lots of app(personal experience, when you open chrome to browse, when ever you open a new tab, phone slows a little down... and if you lock the screen then, phone wont again unless you take the battery off... so be patient).
    2. Though snapdragon 200, long time playing game (2-3 hour) can make your phone lag(personal experience, i played a 47mb game and after 2.5 hours playing, the game speed slowed down 1 sec... with constant lag. i tried to lock the screen and unlock it again but failed to unlock it so took off the battery... dont know if i should take it to service center... suggest me solution.
    3. No mods or custom rom released yet
    4. headphone with the phone is not that good but you can adjust...
    5. My friend sometimes says my voice is getting faint...
    6. 3mp camera is average but i dont consider it as a camera and i don't consider using it

    Tips:-
    Try to use 1 app at a time and be sure you exit every app after use
    I bought this as I am a music lover and no phone can be compared to sony in terms of music "yet"(i feel it) and you might not feel the same while buying the phone... you may say snapdragon is good for games so you will play games flawlessly.. yes you can play but the low ram will hit hard on your head if you play for a long time. So again Be sSure what you want in a phone and what you dont.. cuz it's sony and you cant get everything in a phone of that budget(actually you can... go for chinese phones like Gionee Pioneer P3 or try Lava Iris 406q{my personal opinion... just check the specs from flipkart). but if you want the same things in a phone as i did,(MUSIC!!!!) then go for this phone.
    See ya!!! and congratz on your purchase in advance!
