I bought this phone a week back !! The phone is amazing to use ... No problems at all while playing games or viewing HD videos.

I have only 2 issues overall :
--- Battery life is terrible
--- In call volume is less

Can anyone suggest me how to improve my battery life? Is it possible to replace it with a better powered battery? and any way to fix the ear speaker issue?

Plzz help !!!

Hey guys, on the capture mode option, it only shows 4 things (Normal, Sweep Panorama, Sweep Multi Angle and 3D Sweep Panorama).

How come i don't have the Scene Recognition one?

Thanks

If you are looking at a budget phone, you can consider the below. They are in no specific order.
Xperia Ray
Xperia U
Xperia Sola
HTC One V
Samsung Galaxy Ace 2

Disadvantages
Xperia Ray has a smaller screen. If you are a multimedia user that is one drawback you want to avoid.

Xperia U - Small storage. You need OTG cable and an external disk for more storage. Camera is a big NO-NO. You can compare the pics from the review with HTC One V.

Xperia Sola - All the hardware looks great on paper, users have complained about wifi, call quality, software hangs.

HTC One V - Lot of negativity surrounding the quality. HTC One S users in India are being deceived by shipping phones with S3 processor instead of the advertized S4.
HTC One V has its own share of problems with the display turning yellowish, display going blank, problem with the chipset to name a few.


Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 - No ICS 4.0 update yet from Samsung.

I have stalled my purchase and will check back again after couple of months to see the next batch of budget phones.

Hi to all,

Here in greece we have sony xperia sole. I found some comments that sony xperia sole or sola has allready a scratch resistance zelatin on the display (from the factory) and you dont need to put another except if you remove it. Does enyone know if this is true because i dont want to have two zelatins on my phone!!!!!!! Also they say that is difficult to remove it!!

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2012-06-14 03:24 from UD{T - click to readYeah but it loses where everything matters most *ehem* RAM Ace 2 768mb > Sola 512mb, Secondary Camera Ace 2 while sola has none, Battery Ace2 has 1500, Sola has 1350 or something, and about the so called disadvantages, the sola only has 5gb user available while the ace 2 has 4gb, why was external storage invented in the first place? Ice Cream sandwich upgrade and the underclocked processor, its nothing alittle dev work cant fix. before you do a comparo, try to dig deeper and without bias.
