Mario, 08 Mar 2013Thanks! I actually thought about buying myself a Sola, but got out of the deal just when Sony ... moreI agree with all your points, except the part when you compare Android to iOS and Symbian (platform requirements are way too different).
JB would run just fine on the 2012 midrangers with proper optimizations (I should know, there are great JB roms for our 2011 Xperias), it's just sony being lazy and not optimizing their so-called "NXT UX" crap.
Anonymous, 08 Mar 2013Oh jack go back to your beloved samsung and stop trolling here. Your bada os sucks, atleast x1... moreExcuse me, why would you bash bada in this context? Samsung uses Android too, and Sony (Ericsson) has never EVER even dared to develop a smartphone platform on their own.
Also, The X10 as one of the best? Come on! the thing released with a painfully outdated OS (1.6) and SE didn't bother to upgrade it to 2.1 till months later, and even then, the thing was still outdated. Yes, it got 2.3 a year after launch, but it runs as smooth as sandpaper. Not to mention it's flaky build quality.
Don't take me wrong, I do own an Xperia Mini Pro, but Sony just can't get their sht together. Have you seen how custom ICS roms (such as CM9) run on the original Galaxy S? And how terrible they are on the X10? That speaks volumes, doesn't it?
Talk about future-proofing.
I have check on http://www.sonymobile.com/global-en/software/phones/xperia-j/ don't have update jelly bean
JACK, 08 Mar 2013when Xperia X10i get Android 4.0 ? Oh jack go back to your beloved samsung and stop trolling here. Your bada os sucks, atleast x10 made it as one of the best during its time.
Steps to update your xperia J
AnonD-111158, 08 Mar 2013It's funny because you seriously think Adreno 200 can beat Mali-400.
There's a resong Samsu... moreI mean maybe the sola's gpu is powerful than J but the version of J can use lower RAM or something like that.
In my own opinion. =)
Reese, 08 Mar 2013I picked up my Sola for $210 a few months back and don't regret it. Its not a bad little devic... moreCompletely agreed with you, sometimes I regret updating my friend's Sola to ICS because it's performance blows when it comes to multitasking. Gingerbread was fine but it also had it's own set of issues.
JACK, 08 Mar 2013when Xperia X10i get Android 4.0 ? What if I told you 'never'?
Despite having the same chipset, Sony won't update the X10 because it's old news.
hudahel, 08 Mar 2013the reason for that is sola dont have higher gpu like j.
sony told before if theyll put jb on... moreIt's funny because you seriously think Adreno 200 can beat Mali-400.
There's a resong Samsung used Mali-400 on two flagships (S2, S3) and Adreno 200 on the mid-to-low end handsets (mini, fit, ace).
That's not fair. What about the Xperia S, SL, Acro s. They should be first.
This phone got very bad review but now with the update, I hope gsmarena will give it a quick review to see if it have improve or not!
Anonymous, 08 Mar 2013Wats d use of saying it here. Sony wouldn't hear your comments! Do something on Sony's site. ... moreI have posted there too. But if Mario's comments here are accurate there is nothing we can do to make Sony change their mind about updating all 2012 devices to JB.
Mario, 08 Mar 2013Thanks! I actually thought about buying myself a Sola, but got out of the deal just when Sony ... moreI picked up my Sola for $210 a few months back and don't regret it. Its not a bad little device, just needs constant babying with a task killer because of the poor RAM management issues. More than 2 apps open at once and you're asking for trouble - especially if one of those apps is a web browser! Aside from that it works like a champ. Even on ICS it still looks less laggy than videos I've seen of the XJ.
Which JB device do you have your eye on?
AnonD-11674, 08 Mar 2013When is the update for XPERIA P coming???I think the planned upgrade for Sony Xperia P is in April, am also waiting for it
Sparrow, 07 Mar 2013Still scratching my head as to why a crap phone like the Xperia J gets Jelly Bean, yet the Sol... morethe reason for that is sola dont have higher gpu like j.
sony told before if theyll put jb on sola it will be laggy as hell. .aw =/
