Please give me tips of how to manage battery on the Neo V. I have reduced brightness to least, disabled all radios (except mobile cellular data) which i need for my whatsapp. I have also disabled all auto-sync and have my advanced task killer app to kill apps always. Yet, 40mins of light usage and my battery is at 90% already! GPS too is off. Any ideas? Apps suggestions?!

Prasanth, 23 Jun 2012Please Dont upgrade to ICS, It is Not smooth. Cant play HD or SD video well. It lags. Games ar... firstname.lastname@example.org u talking about?we not buy phone for playing HD games and spent much money only to play "HD GAMES "on this phone.How much % peoples need HD games playingin phone?10%? 20%? u know how much battery use HD playing games? ..hahaha im not sure that we will put charger in pocket and walking around to charge neo every 2 hours playing HD GAMES...Another games working excellent without any problems ...and picture on games is clear and very bright thx for sony mobile bravia engine..this is 3,7 screen this is not 42 full HD TV. Not all here have this phone to play games.We all was buy this phone first bcz is phone and cam with 5 MP and recording movies with 720p.and also to listening radio and music and surfing net ... First time i see that someone have problems with playing SD videos!HD videos on720p working perfectly.not any problem. if u was play video on 1080 HD that's why neo not support this resolution and can not play and its normally. .mp4 working excelent why to use divx files if is not HD on 720p.and thats not FULL HD bcz not have 720p/1080p.are u sure yours net or yours phone have enough memory free?or virus free/? someone who is gamer and want all HD to working excellent then must to put much money for HD games consoles.t so this is PHONE FIRST not gaming console.all features inside is FIRST FOR PHONE USING,then Cam,then internet. If u was not try new ICS then u not speaking bad about 4.0.4.If yours phone lags on playing HD games you buy playing console and save yours eyes healthy.on HD TV.for this money of phone we get from sony much more thanx to sony we love. for yours information,sony servers for downloading new ics working with 110% of capability that's enough prove why all need to install 4.0.4...and millions users across world can not get new software in same time bcz not exist server in this world which will send new software on millions users in same time....that's why sony acepting step by step for downloading new ics....for different parts of world.so you not need to advicing that guys here not instaling new ics "bcz not playing HD games"....smile & regards
StanleyKayCee, 23 Jun 2012Should i upgrade using the normal update service? Will i get the 4.0.4? And agin, is it stable... morePlease Dont upgrade to ICS, It is Not smooth. Cant play HD or SD video well. It lags. Games are slow. if game sound is some more slow.
All other options are bit slow. Since Neo V has single core. ICS work perfectly on Dual core processor OR JUST WAIT UNTIL SONY FIX ALL ISSUE WITH NEO V ICS.
Only the advantage, I can see in ICS is: You will get better battery backup. But I think Neo V already has Good battery back up.
well I have got a temporary solution by arranging playlist thru winamp app,although I like d stock player better for playing music than any other app.
im having a problem to choose between neo v n xperia ray..can u all tell me what is the special about neo v than ray???
Interesting... While reordering songs in playlist on stock music player, I am able to drag a song to a 2desired position but it goes back to its original position...am I doing something wrongly?
PS neo v is on GB
Should i upgrade using the normal update service? Will i get the 4.0.4? And agin, is it stable?! And HD games now work fine?!

Mohd, 22 Jun 2012Why sometimes it says limited network in the browser on WiFi?@mohd:check yuors wifi router and pasword protection on it,try another one,or make again new settings in router and are you sure router working good? what software u have on phone? gingerbread or ics?
StanleyKayCee, 22 Jun 2012Also, please, what is rooting? Advantages and disadvantages/Side effects. Thanks?@Stan @another users about ROOTING: What is Rooting?
Rooting is a process allowing users of mobile phones, tablet PCs, and other devices running the Android operating system to attain privileged control (known as “root access”) within Android’s subsystem. Rooting is often performed with the goal of overcoming limitations that carriers and hardware manufacturers put on some devices, resulting in the ability to alter or replace system applications and settings, run specialized apps that require administrator-level permissions, or perform other operations that are otherwise inaccessible to a normal Android user.
WHY ROOTING:Why Rooting?
Full control over your system, Remove unwanted system apps.
Add linux binaries
Superuser (lets you approve or deny the use of root access to any program.
Root-apps wich requires root-access (example: task-killer/call-blocker/root-explorer
Better to backup your system.
Relocate your (browser/maps/market) cache to your /sdcard
Relocate your installed applications to your /sdcard
There are two main disadvantages to rooting and Android phone;
1. Rooting immediately voids your phone's warranty-Once rooted, don't try to bring your phone back for service or warranty work. You are on your own!
2. Rooting involves the risk of "bricking" your phone-In essence, a "bricked" phone is no better than carrying around a brick in your pocket. The phone is dead when it has been "bricked."
Other potential disadvantages, though less severe, are still worthy of consideration;
1. Poor performance-Though the intention of "rooting" a phone is to give the phone more performance, several users have found that, in their attempts to speed up the phone or add additional features, that their phones lost both performance speed and features. Remember that when you "root" your Android phone, you are making changes to the stock operating system.
2. Viruses-Yes, even phones can get viruses. A common practice that people do with "rooted" phones is to flash their ROM's with custom programs. Whenever you make changes to the code of a software, you run the risk of introducing a virus.
SO ROOTING IS NOT NEEDED !!!
