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.
chard, 20 Sep 2014I also have the same problem. The battery drains so fast that it wont last for an hour with da... moreMy Xperia sola failed to charge yet when I tested the charger on other phone it works. It doesn't start up.
Do not ever buy this phone....
Worst product from Sony....
Lost of users are facing issue of continues auto rebooting.....
I cannot explain how many times I have wanted to throw this phone against a wall. Luckily I haven't. Phone hangs non stop, when on certain apps it will crash, frequent restarts. Perhaps I'm a heavy user but I'm glad I finally got a new phone. Going from this to an Xperia z1 compact has bloody made me a less frustrated smart phone user that's for sure.

Those who are talking about Hang issue
i prefer you to download "Auto Memory manager" from Google Play store(better to download it from play store instead of other link) and your problem will be solved
root it and makes it RAM higher from SD card
its an awesome set sdpecially its camera,video,graphics and specially 3D sound quality

I own a xperia Sola which is updated to Android 4.0.4 my phone never hangs, but I agree the battery goes down way too fast you know why because it has a high quality display not so high. I can hardly use my phone continously for upto 5 hours when it's fully charged. So worth having this phone.

After an upgrade its not possible to use it in a usual way. it is very very slow, insufficient RAM plus some other bugs, like not possible to turn off wi-fi, loosing net signal, etc. I dont know if all Sony devices are like this, but this definitely discredited the brand...
