Third class phone....guys don't ever buy this phone....it has a common issue of getting restarted every now and then in ICS update...in many cases this problem has no solution except getting a new motherboard for it....and a new motherboard is too costly...I m quite disappointed from this phone...it is quite better to buy Micromax....getting no issues at all....be carefullllllllll!!!!!!!
pritesh, 25 Dec 2013The set is pathetic, what is that, the build quality, for 18,000 bucks, you can at least give ... moreThis is called comparing Apples with Oranges.
Your review is not valid at present time. Neo V is one of the best devices launched around its time. Please learn to compare well.
PS: I am using Neo V for 2 yrs now, running Jelly Bean with much better performance than your Neo V. So learn to unleash the beast than getting run over by it.
Ever heard of XDA Developers?
The set is pathetic, what is that, the build quality, for 18,000 bucks, you can at least give a decent cover,512 mb ram, what the hell am i suppose to do with that,battery pathetic, for 18,000 bucks today in the market I can get a ferrari, in comparison, Sony Neo V is what a maruti 800. Micromax, lava , zolo, they kick sony's ass man. Once I get over with this set, I am never even going to look at Sony again.
Neo V ics official without root is better than with root, phone restart also on root conditions and problem battery level charging on 100% only.
asit, 16 Dec 2013`can i upgrade jelly bean in my neo v Yes,you can.But on 4.1.2 version you will have some bugs(Video camera doesn't record at 720p,only vga and HDMI doesn't work).Also you can use KitKat(4.4) but this is full of bugs in this moment.
Can anyone tell me if this phone supports Razer Moray+ Headphones, planning to buy them, and this is my phone. plz help
how i get latest android in my phone please tell me pls some body pls help me iam falior to using sony comapnion
Best rom ever brothers,try this:Gin2JellyBean(2.5.2) or Gin2Kitkat(3.0).It's stable,no bugs like others roms,all functions worked,and have a lot of free RAM,around 200 MB free Ram.Also this is based on stock GB with a combination between AOSP and Cyanogenmod!
gay, 15 Nov 2013can neo v be rooted on ginger bread without upgrading to ICS???????????????????
pls advise me......Yes you can.Just make sure your buildl versioners is 4.0.2.A.0.62. Then download the eroot application on your pc from the net and connect your phone to the pc using usb and run the application on your pc. Now it will detect your phone and show an option to root.Click on that and in a few minutes your phone will be rooted.For more information see this thread
Robs, 18 Nov 2013Is der any possibility Sony wud upgrade Neo V with Kitkat... as kitkat requires 512mb Sony has already ceased development for the 2011 Xperias post the ICS update.So no question of updating neoV.And as far as android 4.4 is concerned Google has already stated support for devices with minimum 512mb ram.But it doesn't mean that its possible for an OEM to include support for it's entry level devices with 512 mb RAM since a lot of bloatware and custom skin is added for every other OEM device unlike Google's nexus phones which comes with stock android.
So your only hope of getting android 4.4 is to install a custom ROM from cyanogenmod or from XDA.
