Sasi 90, 19 Sep 2012Dear Friends i am facing a unique problem. my sola is giving battery backup for 14-16 hours wi... moreI guess ur problem is due to downloading of different apps and they running in the backgroubd.. When u reset ur phone the apps are deleted and hence ur phone is wasting lesser battery.. So if u close ur apps and dont keep any running in the background the phone battery will last longer..
I downloaded the latest update for sony experia sola the When i confirmed it the phone started to shut down and stell doing it for now

ireadfaces, 19 Sep 2012hello everyone, I am an android developer, so I knew all inside out about phones. I bought th... morea clean and neat review. but bad luck i bought this phone.. Can you help me to reduce usage. What ever i do it always running over 200 mb...
i bought it two days back ....
and the phone really amazed mee....its reallly a fantastic phone...just one con its no secondry camera...
for me its ok ....
the best feature of phone is floating touch display it can feel your finger 1cm away from display...
the phone processing(1ghz dual core) n graphics(mali 400) is really awesome...
and combining with sony mod its perfect..
and the is in android version 2.3.7 ugradable to ics ...
update to ics will be available from quarter 3 of 2012
(announcement by sony)...
n camera is really fantastic although its 5mp but has great quality..with face detection n all..
I am an android developer, so I knew all inside out about phones. I bought this phone after much wait and considering many other options, sinc I believed in Brand Sony, I bought this phone.
good things I found -
1.dual core 1 GHz processor,
2.lots of internal memory space to install more apps.
3.internal SD card.
4.since it was Sony, i believed camera will be good. But believe me this camera is not upto the mark when it comes to click pics in low light.
- they provided 2 GB space to install applications but only 512MB ram of which only 300MB is available at a time out of which 150MB will be consumed by its own launcher applications, so you have to deal with rest of 150 MB. Means laggy operations and hanging frequently.
- Screen is good, Bravia engine and stuff is pretty but if you check you will find that its battery is quite ineffecient, and this screen has something that consumes 50% of its battery, you may check battery consumption to verify this.
- battery can't be removed, not much of a trouble but with time you will know what troubles it could do.
- Music quality is average, not much of what used to be in Sony Ericsson phones.
- It hangs, and sometimes blackouts due to less RAM. And this is so irritating that at times I have to restart this thing to refresh my RAM.
- since I am a power user, I have installed apps worth more than one GB, so this may be problem with me but even you are not buying this phone merely for chats.
To conclude this, I would say though there are may setbacks, I am still a proud owner of this phone (cuz I spent money) but if you still haven't spent your money try to buy Samsung S Advance, for this price range, Nothing beats that.

Anonymous, 18 Sep 2012what is the available ram after os use ?generally in sola 310mb of ram is available(depends on app installed)
Dear Friends i am facing a unique problem. my sola is giving battery backup for 14-16 hours without connecting to internet with minimal usage. But if i reset or restart the phone it s giving excellent battery backup for first 2 days with minimal usage. Then day by day it is reducing to again 14-16 hours. Can anyone help me to solve the problem actually what is happening inside my sola pls help...
georgy, 18 Sep 2012neeed help plz ... wich phone do i get sola or xperia U ????? Xperia U is a stylish and good phone, BUT it has no card slot, and 4GB user available is very small nowadays. That should be the deciding factor for you, along with the slightly smaller display of the U. And the U is thicker. And older.
pranto, 18 Sep 2012which one I should choose xperia sola or neo l. Forget Neo L, the internal storage is too small, much too small. It cost a bit less than Sola but the specs are a big bit less than Sola, plus it has the old SonyEriczn design, was good at the time but now it look like something military surplus from era of the Sovjet Union.
its an awesome phone..especially with the floating touch and bravia engine....its really a worth buy
does it have GPRS and EGDE connectivity?
Pls reply soon....
which color is better?
Is it true that Sola`s back cover is squeaking and giving bad sounds when you push it, after few weeks in use?!
How to disable that cosmic flow tingy? even i click the no animation thing, it still moves!
