> In reply to tratu` @ 2015-03-23 09:59 from tU6q - click to readOfficial Sony ICS is exactly as described, in my experience. There's not a lot you can do about it, other than roll back to 2.3.7, which is officially a service centre operation, though is possible with flashtool, the appropriate rom (may depend on region) and a bit of luck (no rooting required).

It is an OK smart phone, had mine from introduction, only quibbles are :
It needs a high current (~2 amps) USB charger initially, e.g. an 'Apple triangle' to start if the battery is empty. Lots of USB chargers wont start it from flat.
I probably need a new battery now but it still holds up for a day of use.
note I inhibit the Xmas tree light to save current, too embarrassing in tube trains aside from increased battery drain.

is it posable to take my contacts out of my phone or read on a laptop via usb?
@
Probably but I convert mine to the generic format and email to myself.
from contacts select option key
send contacts
mark all
send
etc.
Otherwise you back up to internal memory and copy internal memory to PC via USB

try the google store from a PC, you log in with your Google identity (from a browser) and google will send you phone updates unless there is other damage to the phone.
Note google play was not the original name but it (the 'play' app) should be updated to current version with your first update, you need to enable the synch and back ground data traffic in settings - accounts and synch, and need to enable data or WiFi data traffic.

Crap phone Every six months it has touchscreen problems took it to service center two times once on warranty and once without, now its not even six months the touchscreen problems have resurfaced! I never upgraded it to ics its still running on GB it lags like hell! Dont go for any sony phone, their glory days ended with sony-ericsson.

> In reply to VAS @ 2015-01-28 13:22 from RK0k - click to readProbably not a good choice then. It's best on Android 2.3, and the official 4.0 is not good quality. Over the next few years more and more apps will be demanding newer versions of Android and more memory and storage. Yes, you can root and use better custom ROMs, but you will always be limited by the low amount of available system memory and (non-expandable) internal storage. Hope that helps.
