you wont get major updates like ics from the phones software update option itself its only possible using pc companion.
iam too from india and i already got the update but i havent updated it as i heard that phone lags a lot soo

> In reply to Charbel @ 2012-12-22 16:25 from JEuQ - click to readthe actual memory in xperia u is 8 gb out of which 4gb is acessible via connecting to a p.c , we can store music , vedios, etc in it and 2gb is saved as phone memory which is not user acessible used as storing apps nly and the rest of 2gb is pre occupied by the O.S ,so its basically like we only can use ,4gb + 2g = 6gb rest 2gb O.S occupied.
i hope ew understood !!

Its a sad thing that sony wont be giving the J.B update to xperia U , but i hope they will atleast release an update to resolve some bug issues for ics so as to make it more stable and convenient for everyday use including the lagging thing that most of the people complained about !

Ex. like you are playing Fruit ninja you can chop 4 fruits at same time using 4 fingers.It is helpful while gaming.
Hope you got it.

> In reply to Sundar Pichai @ 2012-12-21 21:00 from uwVe - click to readWhat exactly is the Project Butter based on? Number of processor cores? RAM? GPU? Screen resolution?

(1) It's safe to say that Dual-core processor of U and Sola has advantage over crappy single-core outdated processor of J.

(2) J, U, Sola all the three have got 512 MB RAM and share same screen resolution. This is where GPU comes into the play. While U and Sola have got Mali-400, J has got the shitty Adreno 200. It doesn't take a genius to conclude that Mali-400 can push all those pixels more efficiently and without any lag compared to Adreno 200.

Despite this, Sony plans to upgrade J to Jelly Bean while U and Sola are given wooden spoon.

As the main element of JB update is Project Butter which mainly focuses on interface smoothness.Now as Xperia U has a high resolution of 480*854 and just 512MB RAM it will not be able to run JB satisfactorily. None of the other phones receiving this update have 512MB RAM and this much resolution. Regarding the phones having Qualcomm processor I am not quite sure how they are managing the JB. There must be something better in Snapdragon than in the Novathor (which I am unable to find).That can only be the plausible explanation.

I can only understand that the excuse given by Sony is made in a view to boost the mediocre sales of Xperia Go and J. With U and Sola being sold like hot cakes, Sony seems to take things for granted and is assuming that people will go on to buy them despite of the lack of Jelly Bean. Such a cheap shot it is. Whatever happened to 'Providing support to all models for AT LEAST 18 months'.

One more important thing to notice here is, U and Sola, despite being 2012 phones, have been shipped with Gingerbread out of the box which was released in early 2011. Even the ICS update provided was actually released in 2011 by Google. So, as a matter of fact, Sony just provided the 2011 software to its 2012 portfolio and yet trying to showcase as if it really supported most of its models.

I have upgraded my phone o ICS. I have also done the reset. But the phone still gets slow a lot of times. A lot of time it hangs miserably and then I have to remove the battery and restart. What should be done?

> In reply to xperia U m.r.k @ 2012-12-21 11:50 from 63{B - click to readYou really need a computer to update the U to ICS. I am not sure about in other countries/regions but here in philippines for sure its not available OTA.

Its important to update the U to ICS 4.0.4 because of the Gingerbread WIFI issues this phone experiences on some wifi networks with high security. My wife was not going to upgrade her Xperia U to ICS (because its so fast and smooth on Gingerbread) but the Wifi issues gave her no choice. Lucky the upgrade didnt affect performance much, if at all, its good. Facebook Inside Xperia will be disabled after upgrade to avoid performance issues but it will ask you if you want to enable it again.
