And despite all the negative opinions about it around ... moreHi, as you said, ICS is really crap on this phone, almost everyday i feel like throwing this away! How can I go back to Gingerbread or flash a CyanogenMod as you suggested? or how did you flash SlimCM v3? I really want to get rid of ICS from my phone. Kindly advice.
I have this phone for a few months now. And despite all the negative opinions about it around here, I consider it a great, every-day smartphone. But not with Android 4.0.4. ICS 4.0.4 it's really crap on Sola and will lag as hell. Get rid of it as soon as you get this phone and either go back to Gingerbread or flash a CyanogenMod. I flashed SlimCM v3 and works excellent. Really smooth, no lag at all. Also as others already said it, uninstall Google Play Services (or just quarantine it).
Remember this phone is not made for people who want to play games or do multitasking since it only has 512MB of RAM. But if you're a regular user who only wants a nice looking, cheap smartphone for every-day use (browsing, music, email, youtube) this might be a very good choice once you switch from ICS (which is horrible on Sola).
Very bad experience, many lags, constantly crushing apps and slow in general.

If you want to speed up your Xperia SOLA do these simple tricks!
1. Uninstall Google Play services (it is a useless app even though some apps gives you warnings to download it, don't do it because this app alone makes your phone 50% slower)
2. Avoid using facebook updated app, instead use a browser to go to FB, in this way you don't need facebook messenger.
Totally waste Xperia sola ,,,,waste my money and time ???so pls return to my money !!!sony is ____________?company so many problems ????

Phone is outdated now as it is. But if you use CM11 KitKat 4.4.4 and a ram swapper, it simply comes back to life. I was considering a new phone so i didn't see a downside of trying rooting and went for it. Now i'm happy with Sola again.
I have had this phone for over a year and suddenly the phone decided not to charge even though the charger works well on other phones.This is not to say that I've had a smooth ride with it all this while. I wouldn't recommend it because it gave me too many problems especially with battery life and memory issues.
