Sony's Xperia Companion is a useful and official tool for Sony cell phones which provides access to many useful tools.
The main layout of the application gives quick access to tools such as software update, refreshing the firmware on the device; software repair which can help resolve bricking issues by reinstalling firmware; backup and restore tools which can help prevent data loss and file transfer for sharing files between your PC and phone.
As with most modern official tools by handset manufacturers, Xperia Companion is rather easy to use and messing things up can be difficult. The speed of the software isn't bad by any stretch and its clean layout makes for an easy task of keeping a copy of your files on your PC in case you happen to get some corrupted.
One of the most useful tools is of course the possibility of using Xperia Companion to update your phone firmware or performing a software repair in case you've had an aborted update.
All you really need to use Xperia Companion is a proper USB cable, an Xperia phone or tablet and a PC. That's it, you're set to go.Xperia Companion features and highlights:
