Thanks
Please don't buy....its to much lagging issues...
application are unfortunately stops due to low RAM space...google maps also stop working...
how it runs with jelly bean ?????? plz tell ... its lagging very much on ICS
The sola is a gud phone and I recommend many pipo 2 purchase it though it has no front camera. dats the problem with it,otherwise its kul.....
For me sola is perfect phone, small but not too small, perfect pocket size, fast and responsive, very stable software, great camera and picture quality, timeless design.
My current software: GB 2.3.7 (6.0.B.3.184)
There are few things with it's use.
First, stick with GB and not upgrade to ICS. ICS had few bugs in my case, brake up during calls, when receiving call after answering phone would still ring, sloooow at opening programs, especially phone app, SMS led notification not working, simple terrible. With GB all above works fine.
Second. I'm using phone just for calls few times a day. Sometimes GPS and internet also. Battery lasts in standby 7-10 days! On heavy use 2-3 days. How is that possible?
Well, there are few things to consider: you need new and latest SIM card, sola doesn't like microSD cards so if you don't need it get it out cause some SD cards do draw battery, in network setting set it to work in GSM mode only, turn off animations, last and important, before putting the phone on charger to fill up the battery, TURN IT OFF AND THAN CHARGE IT or IF LEAVING PHONE ON, AFTER CHARGING TURN IT OFF, WAIT A MINUTE OR TWO THAN TURN ON.
That's it. Before battery would last 3 days tops, on heavy use just 1 day! It took me 2 months of experimenting and reading comments to solve battery drain problem.
I have all other usual apps and of course wifi, GPS turn off.
Forget all task killers, battery calibrations, rooting and God knows what else. Stock GB works just fine.
danny, 26 Dec 2013How to fix it when sola is being a ' hyper battery consumer'Its simple....
just go to power options and activate the extended battery standby time mode....
Hope that will help........ :)
qahara, 26 Dec 2013if I use Samsung usb cable. will it save to user it to upgrade my solaWell Sir Qahara,I have no full garantee that using a Samsung USB cable will be safe.I strongly recommend you use the original sony xperia sola USB cable for a full and safe update to andriod ICS version.Because according to one of the cautions that was mentioned on the sony pc guide,it strongly warned that xperia sola users must use the original usb cable for its update.
Bro,i probably think you should try looking for the original cable to buy from a legal phone shop... Because even if you use the samsung usb cable to update your xperia sola successfully,you cannot risk to have severe bugs and problems after your update to ICS on your phone and aside all,it goes totally against your phone's warranty
So please bro sorry if you lost your usb cable but i am sure you can get a brand new one from legal phone shops or you can even borrow a friend's sony xperia sola usb cable to update successfully.So what trying to do by updating with a sumsung usb cable is unknowingly quite risky.......Hope you totally agree with me???.........Thanks for your concern............

But because of your upgrade to the ICS version the location has been changed....
This is where you can find the 3D panorama camera...
1.Tap or Open the camera.
2.On your camera screen you will see a list of options for example;Capture,lightening,shooting mode etc.
3.Simply choose or tap the shooting mode...please if you can't find it,it is on far top left side of the screen when you turn the phone horizontally or landscape......The icon looks like a small box in a big box...
4.Tap it and it will open a slash menu indicating different types of camera modes namely;SCENE RECOGNITION,NORMAL,3D SWEEP PANORAMA,3D SWEEP MULTI ANGLE and SWEEP PANORAMA.
5.Good,well enjoy your new ICS version...........cause a lot of super features has been added to enhance the phone enjoyment and confort,like the talk back service which enables the phone to talk or mention anything your hand touches on the screen,floating touch,super gaming controls and graphic enhancer,super bravia video and image enhancer engine,the best update for walkman and more................Explore the new possiblities of your sony xperia sola with the ICS version...............ENJOY......................
xperia sola king bro thnx for telling us how to update ics but after upgrading my phone,the option of 3d camera is not there can u help me in this problem?
Is there a fix to touchscreen not responding issues? Specifically, the top left corner icons not responding while others do respond but takes a little effort (a single touch, soft or hard, may not help the first time). Any suggestions, please update.
Sony Xperia Sola has a known issue with touch screen not responding. Most notably, the top left corner icons on any screen does not respond at all (Eg. : Contacts icon in Applications screen; Gmail icon in the next screen; Google+ icon in the third screen; Liveware Manager in the fourth screen.) Touch is as it is pathetic; trying to unlock by swiping the finger is a very difficult task; once unlocked, using any icon is difficult, specifically the top left icons not responding at all - even after updating the software to the latest, doing reset procedures, etc. A simple search in the Internet gives a plenty of users facing this issue and also demonstrating the same by videos of the phone. Very upsetting.
1. Sometimes wifi cannot be turned off (power off - power on - turn wifi OFF is the only way that works).
2. A battery saving setting makes your calls drop and your phone unreachable, turning it off fixes that... (Battery saving function that supposedly turns off data connection when you´r screen is off or something like that)
These problems seems to be pretty widely known, but unfixed by SONY. I am really disappointed in them and wouldn´t recommend sony to anyone.....
how floating touch is activated in sola and is there gyro sensor in this phone??
