Yes, its a great mobile, but not compatible with Android 4.0, I have updated it and it gives me a new feel and look and graphics, but whenever I turn on my bluetooth for sharing, it started its erratic behavior. it will not respond, it will turn off and turn back on automatically, but I am not aware it is because of Bluetooth, but finally one fine day, it turns off, but did n't turn on, it shows SONY and then Experia in flashing lights and Sony an Experia and goes on an on, when I called Sony Support, they finally revealed that this phone is not supported for Android 4.0, it is only compatible with 2.3.4., so I downgraded back and now feeling comfortable., asked about the sony's annoucement to upgrade to 4.0, they told that if Sony says don't upgrade, then there will a huge problem, so they won't publish it in public, but it is the fact.

i've updated my live with walkman to ics 4.0. the performance drops and then i noticed some lags when navigating the menu.. also some applications or games may not work properly . i thought updates make the phone better but it's the other way. it drains more battery than before and it become slower.. arggh. i like the UI but the performance ,, no, i am now plannning to go to service centre to downgrade it to 2.3

i just updated my Live with Walkman to ICS and it was a bit laggy at first but then i did a factory reset and set it all up again. That made it quite faster, not as GB but fast enough. As fot gaming, i was still able to play angry birds, temple run, fruit ninja etc. with good performance, i would say 5 fps less, and in benchmarks it says tha GPU performance is better.
CONCLUSION:i am satisfied and i didnt regret the update :)
