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.
Randy V, 23 Jul 2014Whenever I try to open a program,it just shows the program name and then automatically exits..... moreHi Randy V,
This could be the probable cause,
1.An internal display and compactability program in the phone is not working or responding.....
2.The program you are running is not compactible with the phone.....
IF YOU PROBLEM LIES IN THE FIRST REASON THEN HERE ARE PROBABLE SOLUTIONS TO FIX IT...
Step 1: Give your phone a hard restart by holding down the power button key and the volume up key all together at the same,Keep holding until the phone goes completely off.Once it goes off,switch on your phone and try running any of the programs to see if it now works...
IF THAT DOES NOT HELP THEN TRY STEP 2
Step 2: You should try resetting your phone completely.
go to (SETTINGS>BACKUP AND RESET>FACTORY DATA RESET>then proceed)
(WARNING!! PLEASE BACKUP ALL YOUR VALUABLE INFORMATION SUCH AS YOUR CONTACTS,MEDIA,PROGRAM APKS AND etc,BEFORE YOU PROCEED TO RESETTING YOUR PHONE)

Thanks for your concern,hope this solution works for you ;)

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...
Everything started out great when I bought Xperia sola in the first place. But then it keeps hang and whenever I tried to screenshort, all of my album disappeared or sometimes just a few of my photo appeared! Im so dissapointed!!
Worst phone ever , I would exchange this shit with a kit kat bar with a smile on my face . 1 million hangs & freez per minute , u better throw this phone in the toilet n flush it quickly
Whenever I try to open a program,it just shows the program name and then automatically exits... What can I do?
never read the user opinion pls....who like us then after purchase any mobile..and i say that everyone mobile has something problem..so we liked any type of mobile we should purchase it...
This phone is baaad. It was woking fine when i got about in early 2013. Reviews then were very favourable. l liked what this phone had to offer. Not the best phone even then but it was great value for money and better specs than samsung for the same price point. Then bang! It just started crawl and hang!?!? Reading from the reviews just now, I realise and understand that it was the upgrade that did it in. This phone is a goner. Not buying nor recommending to people to buy sony phones.
LEE10114, 07 Jul 2014don't update!!!... I saw reviews saying that updating the system form Gingerbread to ICS slowe... moreI can confirm this. Sony messed up big time by releasing ICS for the Sola. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think 512MB is sufficient for ICS to run properly.
I've hated my phone ever since I mistakenly "updated" to ICS. I thought it was just an update to GB. BIG mistake. My Sola is going to be replaced soon.
don't update!!!... I saw reviews saying that updating the system form Gingerbread to ICS slowed the phone down but I did not listen... It would've been a great phone if I left it alone...
chinnu, 20 Jun 2014my cell sony xperia sola is hang due to usage of internet connectionsMa phne is also the xperia sola and i havn't any hang in the phone then y u guys hf that.? iz bcz of ur incorrect usage thaiz y ur ph getting hang
bad phone.. its hangs all d time.. sometimes or rather everytime u get a call, u cant recieve it for 1 min inspite of answering d call.. all bcz of low ram
also u cnt just do many activities at a time.. it hangs..
better opt for a phn with atleast 1gb ram
this phn is great bt due to its hanging nature, u hardly cn use its best features!!
Well, the prone is pretty messed up by the developers - Sony.
If you're on low budget, and you can get Sola with Gingerbread, then go for it and never update it to Ice cream sandwich.
Trust me, just don't. No matter how you want it. It will mess up the phone.
I can't tell how great it would be with GB, cuz I updated the first day I got the phone, but, reading a lot of forums, I came to the conclusion, that ICS is one, that killed the phone.
^That's just for some, who didn't know.
Other than that, just like others said - RAM is too small, battery life is not so great either (Though it charges relatively fast), multitasking is quite hard thing to do... but yeah if you're just going to use it for calls, SMS, some web browsing - you'll have no problem with that.
Can you please let me know how to boot Sola MT 27i so that I can increase the ram size.
Also it discharges very quick. Quick like within 4 Hours the mobile dies.... without any usage of it......
If used, I cannot even use it for more than 1.5 hours... Please let me know how to correct this things.
You help will be appreciated a lot.
My phone sony solo, I bout it year ago , the problem is that discharge very fast after disconnect from electric supply, what I will do?
