USD, Peso, Yen, Rs etc. You must also check similar phones depending on what's available in your country, older high end phones similar to this might already dropped prices there.
Do you need a smart phone primarily for? camera, or games, or utility apps, or music player, video player, internet browsing? or you need something all around at the price that you need, but what is your priority?
I want to buy Android Phone within 20k. I had checked Sola in store and its look are really nice. So please tell me that this phone is worthed or not and is there any problem or constraint.
Thanks in Advance for providing your feedback ASAP
@in9013 your asking for performance on ICS, we still can't tell because Sony hasn't released the update yet. But they promised to release it.
ICS is already released for other phones, but it's not the same, Sony will add their customization like bravia engine to it and make sure the hardware is compatible in the OS. That's why it will take sometime
actually you are correct about the storage and some of it being used by the OS etc.
xperia sola's memory is actually divided like this.
phone memory = almost 2gig free space(user accessible)
internal memory = 4gig free space (user accessible)
external memory = up to 32 gig (user accessible)
that's why I say 5-6 gig is really user accessible
@sam hi sam, why does it restart, could it be because of apps installed or too many apps running in background at the same time? try installing a task manager , like "go task manager" and kill all apps when not in use. It could also save you battery. Is it the same case even if you haven't installed anything? it can be a software problem? if you don't mind, you can probably restore your phones factory settings in the settings->privacy->"factory data reset" but it will delete everything and return your phone to brand new state.
itz mee, 17 Jul 2012thanx for ur reply dude
yeah that's true it has sd card support. I just want to make sure wh... moresrry, i fogot 2 mention about how much of internal memory is user available!!!, its around 5-6GB i guess.
Or as u tol it myt be evn 4GB.
Sometimes the sleep/wake doesn't response.
phone switched off automatic 2/3 times (Couldn't detect it why)
most disappointed when i m done and disconnect from my PC it re connect again it recommend to restart the phone and after when i restart then its connect with my PC through wifi or usb cable.. this is very depressed me.... need to update from 2.3.7 to ICS 4.xx when SONY officially gives me the update i hope these problms will be solved....
@mark sola or arc s?
Both almost have the same price in our country.
Arc S has better camera(8mp) and larger screen 4.2 inches. But sola has Dual core processor and and a slightly better GPU. Not to mention also that Sola is a newer release.
On my needs I would choose Sola because I want a phone that can run most apps and will be able to run more resource hungry applications in the future(it's dual core and better GPU).
But if you want a better camera(which I don't need since I use a real digi cam for picture) or a bigger screen, for better video streaming and movie watch and also larger keyboard for a more accurate typing. Then choose Arc S. Honestly its 1.4ghz core and adreno 205 gpu can run most existing apps in the market. But a day can come that there will be apps/specially games that will run or will only smoothly run on dual core processors above. specially now that there are already quadcore phones
@paul The network doesnt drop in my unit during calls, if you have signal. it's just similar to my other phones. I don't have any network problems.
to others. it says 8gig but around 5gig to 6gig only available to users in internal memory. Also added info to be honest, you can only store Apps on the 5-6gig internal memory(except if you root your phone). the 32gig sdcard may be used for storing songs, videos, ebooks, gba games, ps1 iso/cd , etc. if you want to use 32gig for apps also, only way is to root it. but I tell you, the 5-6gig internal for apps is already enough.apps usually have small sizes like 5mb or highest 40mb for games. although some 3D games such as GTA, NOVA 2, Plants vs Zombies are like 200MB each. still with 5gig internal you can already install alot. But sure you can still exhaust and need more than 5 gig for apps. so this is to help you decide (specially if you dont want to root your phone)
@paul , usb on the go is like you can have the ability to access files in a usb/flash drive. I really don't use it since the box doesn't include a cable/port for usb on the go. But it is supported, since I can also see it on my storage manager. It's just like being able to connect and copy paste or access files on flash disk, similar on how you access flash disk on PC. aside from that it can support up to 32gig micro sd, so you can really store alot here.
