If you want more RAM, you can using Cook ROM (recommend using Cook ROM GB). I used it and feel good

That will depend on your place. Better you go to Sony Mobile Center.

I just read at sony website about the new android 4 for this phone and i just download the pc companion and when i try to upgrade the firm they says "your phone is up to date" but i still android 2.3 why i cant upgrade to 4.0?
juns, 26 Feb 2013the specs is spectacular. Yes, you true. the specification is very good with affordable. After many thinks I updated to ICS. It's OK the performance is slower than Gingerbread, but the information RAM, used and free is correct.
Back again to Gingerbread 2.3.4 finally is OK. I updated to 4.0.2.A.0.84 via OTA, it worked. Although the information of used RAM and free RAM not as good as in ICS (some MBs are missing). In Gingerbread, my Xperia mini shows used RAM 174 MB and free 145 MB after restart, later the free RAM will be decreased (if added some applications running in background, of course, decrease), but if we total used and free, it won't be 300 MB or more. Different when I watched running applications in ICS, where used RAM and free RAM after restart and later used for some hours, the total RAM in settings is always shows true information (total is about 335 MB).
Well, for faster performance, I still refer to Gingerbread. :-)

My Xperia mini works fine. No slow when downloading. Now I had downgraded to Gingerbread 2.3.4 again with built number 4.0.2.A.0.84.
Guys..... installing apps from play store has become very slow now..... it takes 2-3 hours for downloading details to just come to the status bar....then it starts downloading & many times it never appears in the status bar..... It was working well around 20 days back.. I don't know whether its my fone's prob or Google playstore...
It's a small device but very powerful. The hardware is the same as the HTC Desire hd but due to the lower resolution of the display is much faster because the CPU has to render many fewer pixels.
Had updated to Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 (4.1.B.0.857) again :-)
Its internal browser is good. I found my Xperia mini RAM information after in ICS was right between used and free. When was still in Gingerbread 2.3.4 rooted, the RAM was not correctly shown, there were some MB RAM (may 50 MB or more) missing.
