For those who have lag issues with the ICS I have the solution... download on your computer the official sony software named sony pc companion.. Upgrade your sola using pc companion and follow the instructions.. once you have finished the upgrade turn on your phone... if it lags then shut. it down, connect again your phone on your pc and start again the sony companion software and click on repair button and follow the instructions. Finished! now the phone will run smoothly now as well as mine! for those who already have the ICS and experiencing lags just do the last step that I wrote above. I hope I helped. Have a nice day and enjoy your sola!!

Vek, 02 Jan 2013Hello Frnds, Plz any1 can help me??? I m little confuce between Sola and Xperia J, Plz... moreHi, you should base your decision in 5 points. 1)memory 2)video recording 3)secondary camera 4)cpu and 5)battery. My xperia sola is working very well, only the battery is an important issue. I think a modern phone should record at least 720p videos nowadays. I do not need the front camera and I must say a dual core cpu makes a difference comparing to a single 1GHz core. I would choose the xperia sola again. The battery on the xperia J seems to me the only advantage, however a very important one. Good luck.
Vek, 02 Jan 2013Hello Frnds, Plz any1 can help me??? I m little confuce between Sola and Xperia J, Plz... moreYou should base your decision in 1)internal memory 2) video recording 3)secondary camera 4)single/dual core and 5)battery. My xperia sola runs very well, but I have big battery issues. I do not need a front camera. Dual core makes a difference. 720p video recording is normal nowadays. So looking at the xperia J only the battery capacity seems to be a a big factor against the sola. Good luck.
Plz any1 can help me???
I m little confuce between Sola and Xperia J,

jed, 01 Jan 2013 I was really excited to see the update for the Sony Xperia Sola so I rushed and updated and I... moreand did you do factory reset after update to ics i read on some pages that its need to be done and its heps and your ics version was 4.0.4?
jed, 01 Jan 2013 I was really excited to see the update for the Sony Xperia Sola so I rushed and updated and I... moreyeah, thats a lesson for you go to service center tell them that you want gb back and you'll be happy again man,i nevel liked ics so much because gb is the best for games ics was never created for games i they want to create it for games ics be to times faster then gb but its not, and there is nothing new exept glove mode it looks the same but it has more dissadvantages then advantages :) i'm having v6.0.B.3.184 and no problems like other saying phone runs fast battery last two days on hard using, i only update to ics if they release version of update in witch you can move games to real sd card - ONLY then :)
I've used this phone for nearly 4 months, both with Gingerbread and ICS.
Battery moderate use - 3G about 20 hours and 2G 1.5 days. If you turn off mobile data, battery easily last for 2 days
ICS bit laggy but UI is better than gingerbread. I have some issues with answering calls, it stucks sometimes. I dont hear anything for 1st 2,3 seconds which is annoying.
Had some issues with google play connectivity after updating to ICS, but it solved with the next minor upgrade.
Screen is superb. Scratch free guard in stock
Phone speaker is not in a good place. When i kept it on a soft surface (like on my bed), the volume drastically reduces.
Some files stored in the phone memory may affect PC connectivity. I had problem of not detecting the phone in Media Transfer Mode. Had to wipe out all the data in phone memory to make it working again. That sucks
Finally, I'm happy with the phone. Good for the price range. But im missing my old Nokia Symbian OS which is far more stable than Android...
