> In reply to steve @ 2014-12-30 18:08 from 47Ig - click to readMy mistake, first paragraph of my post should read:

"Well, one of the the only weak points I've found with this phone was the RAM. This has 1 GB of RAM (686 MB accessible for applications) and was the flagship phone from Sony in 2012, now the flagship has 3 GB of RAM. This phone should have had 1.5 GB of RAM or more, but no cell phones did that I know of in 2012."

I had just woke up and gave the wrong specifications on a site listing relatively every specification you could ask for. Everything else in my reply is accurate to the best of my knowledge.

> In reply to joe @ 2014-12-30 09:20 from LbHf - click to readWell, one of the the only weak points I've found with this phone was the RAM. This has 512 MB and was the flagship phone from Sony in 2012, now the flagship has 3 GB of RAM. This phone should have had 1 GB or RAM, but no phones did that I know of in 2012.

To compensate for the lack of RAM (you can't upgrade it), there's a few things you can do:

1. Fully power it down every seven days or less to wipe the cache.

2. Delete or disable any apps you don't need. This phone arrives to the consumer with quite a few apps you'll probably never use. In its factory configuration (before you even download your first app) after being on for three days straight, it'll be consuming 75%-80% of the ram causing lag on movement and studders on video.

3. Make sure you don't have two programs that do the same function. Two of the most common complaints about this phone is "It just shut off on me" and that's from being out of RAM and crashing. The other is "After a couple days of use the keyboard lags" and that one is because of the limited RAM and factory settings. Meaning, this phone has its own factory texting features and because its an Android phone (and they're attached to Google) so it has "WhatsApp" which updates into "Hangouts". If you don't use that program then delete "Hangouts" and disable "WhatsApp" (you can't delete it). Then you should never have keyboard lag.

I've had my Acro S for two years now and its never shut off on me and after removing the programs I've mentioned it can run for weeks at a time and I've never encountered keyboard lag since.

Buying this phone was a big mistake, the only thing that's good in it is the camera to be honest.. The phone is so slow and battery drains fast although I don't download games and I only download the necessary apps but it's still slow it kinda changed my whole opinion of Sony :(

Its Bn longer than a year to have acro s
To B honest d phone isn't that impressive at all!

***D best feature is d camera, d qualiT of d photos r awesome, unfortunely d focusing pricess sometimes takes ages, therefore while filming blur parts r so possible.

- due to very little RAM, only 600 something, d phone gets too slow, eespecially when ur online. Furthermore d battery gets hot. D problem runs after using instagram for instance.

- Another problem is that there is no way to get a backup!!!eachtime i wanted to do so, it was said there was apassword set somewhere so NO backup happens!!!

Hope sony does improve and solve these issues as soon as possible because customers can B d best way to advertise for the company.

Acro s is a device with various complaints and the above mentioned problems are common to all acro s.
My acro turned out to be the worst phone I ever used. In case of hanging delete most apps on your phone and make sure lot of ram left to run ur fone
