JB would run just fine on the 2012 midrangers with proper optimizations (I should know, there are great JB roms for our 2011 Xperias), it's just sony being lazy and not optimizing their so-called "NXT UX" crap.

Also, The X10 as one of the best? Come on! the thing released with a painfully outdated OS (1.6) and SE didn't bother to upgrade it to 2.1 till months later, and even then, the thing was still outdated. Yes, it got 2.3 a year after launch, but it runs as smooth as sandpaper. Not to mention it's flaky build quality.

Don't take me wrong, I do own an Xperia Mini Pro, but Sony just can't get their sht together. Have you seen how custom ICS roms (such as CM9) run on the original Galaxy S? And how terrible they are on the X10? That speaks volumes, doesn't it?

Talk about future-proofing.

In my own opinion. =)

Despite having the same chipset, Sony won't update the X10 because it's old news.

There's a resong Samsung used Mali-400 on two flagships (S2, S3) and Adreno 200 on the mid-to-low end handsets (mini, fit, ace).

That's not fair. What about the Xperia S, SL, Acro s. They should be first.

> In reply to Mario @ 2013-03-08 02:36 from JIwI - click to readI picked up my Sola for $210 a few months back and don't regret it. Its not a bad little device, just needs constant babying with a task killer because of the poor RAM management issues. More than 2 apps open at once and you're asking for trouble - especially if one of those apps is a web browser! Aside from that it works like a champ. Even on ICS it still looks less laggy than videos I've seen of the XJ.

Which JB device do you have your eye on?
