I have been using this phone for 8 months now.So here is my experience:
1. Battery easily lasts for a day with data usage ON and when data is OFF it goes upto 36-40hrs.
As i have seen some users are complaining that it drains from 100 to zero during stand by only....Yes thats true..but i have faced that only once or twice and when i checked the power consumption it showed that Android OS consumed 82% of the battery.The best solution for this is to keep the DATA OFF while sleeping.Thats what i did and i never faced this again. :)
2. The camera's picture quality is average but video quality is somewhat nice.
3.Screen is the best part of this phone...you will just love it.
4. Lag issues are more frequent during Data usage...otherwise its fine.But believe me when it lags you can even slam it on the wall...but be patient and just restart it ;)
5.Gaming performance is great.In this area Mali400 has done its job nicely.
6.Till now i haven't faced any call drop or signal loss issues.Dont know why people keep saying that. or maybe its lucky me.
7.Audio quality is good.Default earphones are average...but i use Seinheisser's PMX 80 and they give me some xtraordinary results.
8. Lag problems are due to low RAM...so just root your phone and enjoy :)
Guys!! HELP ME..
My sola is getting discharged within 8 hrs from full charge that too when i haven't even unlocked it for once, yesterday before going to sleep i saw it had 100% charge but when i woke up today i say the notification blinking and only 4% left, i unlocked it to see the battery graph it had gone almost vertically down and then it just switched off showing only 1% left. How is this possible when the phone was idle for the whole time.
28% phone idle
20% android OS
Please give me some advice what to do

UN, 31 Jul 2013Sony Xperia Sola vs Nokia Lumia 620,, Who wins the battle???Definitely L620......
L620 features better processor & gpu than sola.....
I've seen proof on youtube......
Just consider benchmarks too before you buy...!!
why s0ny n0t relesing Jelly Bean for sola??
They relesed JB for xperia go..but sola is 0ne step ahead thn xperia go on performance!!
its too slow processing..........app errir occours smetimes.
ram fkd up.
clicking has to wait soo much dat d persn loses his smile n gets ib angr n blurrd image.
Very Very Slow Processing, very few apps installed in my xperia sola. Rest is OK.
If u like windows go for Nokia whereas if u like Android Sony to go.. u can feel the power of android.
And SOLA with dual performance wise its great.. the only problem is with the battery which is 1350mAH . For dual core processor inmy opinion its not enuf .

Its a good according to the features mentioned and also untill it is not upgraded once if u upgrade the mobile you will entire feel of using a smart phone and even you can't play temple run because it always hangs while you are playing
