Is user available so how can you expect it to run fast....whereas z1 & z2 have 2g.b & 3 g.b ram respectively so they will run smoothly...& all Sony phones are not the same. The speed of the phone depend's upon it's ram & multitasking depend's upon the processor & not upon the Company or the brand.

I've used my sola for 2 years. After ICS upgrade, I had a disappointing period. But I've installed CM11 KitKat 4.4.2 custom ROM and now my sola is a really smartphone.. I suggest this for every sola users.

ICS works perfectly on my sola. Just remove all transition effects, widgets, live wallpaper.

I have been used this phone for 2 and half year. It was good about one year. After upgrading to ICS it went terrible. It lags and crashes all the time. I am dissapointed in Sony. Plan to buy Xperia Z1 or Z2 but not sure in Sony anymore :(

why is it, that the phone loose signal and then you have to switch the phone off completely and then restart? it is frustrating because you don't know when the phone lost its signal. only time is when you pick up your phone and see that their is a red X top right side of hand set? is their a setting? What is the airplane mode, Must it be on or off?

regards

Emile

How can I go back to Gingerbread or flash a CyanogenMod as you suggested? or how did you flash SlimCM v3? I really want to get rid of ICS from my phone. Kindly advice.

I have this phone for a few months now. And despite all the negative opinions about it around here, I consider it a great, every-day smartphone. But not with Android 4.0.4. ICS 4.0.4 it's really crap on Sola and will lag as hell. Get rid of it as soon as you get this phone and either go back to Gingerbread or flash a CyanogenMod. I flashed SlimCM v3 and works excellent. Really smooth, no lag at all. Also as others already said it, uninstall Google Play Services (or just quarantine it).
Remember this phone is not made for people who want to play games or do multitasking since it only has 512MB of RAM. But if you're a regular user who only wants a nice looking, cheap smartphone for every-day use (browsing, music, email, youtube) this might be a very good choice once you switch from ICS (which is horrible on Sola).

Very bad experience, many lags, constantly crushing apps and slow in general.
