Hey all. Am having the hardest time deciding between Xperia Pro and Galaxy Ace 2 (or maybe Galaxy S Advance). They are pretty much the same - according to reviews: no lag, brisk and smooth navigation, display etc.
Pro's big selling point for me is the qwerty keyboard but am a bit worried about the single core processor and the fact that it is over a year old and may not continue getting OS updates.
Galaxy Ace 2/S Advance: I believe they are both great phones, nice dual core processors, very likely Jelly Bean candidates etc. but NO qwerty keyboard. :( I am not too fond of typing on screen.
Anyone with useful insight? I have tried but not been able to find a decent, fairly new, dual core phone with slide out keyboard. If anyone knows of one pls let me know and, every answer/input is most appreciated.

An excellent phone for 12 K. Physical keyboard is a pleasure. Comparable to phone of 15 to 18 K range. Display is a bit dull so not very suitable for bright outdoor. Planning to go for Jelly Bean after seeing the improvement. Any major issues after updating to JB ?

To change the font size, go to
Settings -> Display
Select 'Font size' option
Here you can see 3 options
Now you can see the display font size increased in menus, messaging, contacts, etc.
I checked this option in my Xperia Pro running on Android 4.04 (ICS). I don't know this option is available in Android 2.3.4 version
Hi all, can you tell me how to increase the Front size of this phone, my eyes is bit week & i want large letters on sms , contact & notes.
kindly help me how to set the front size.
It is about 3 weeks that I'm using this cell phone, and I'm totally satisfied. I couldn't really imagine I can get sth with this high quality and state-of-the-art technologies with this cost. The quality of the display, the video recording, Qwerty, HDMI, voice noise reduction. all where good. The only cons I may hardly mention is about the quality of photos in poor illumination and moving objects, although I can not compare it to other cell phones; and that I couldn't install PC companion from my phone; so I did it from Internet.
its really awesome... no problem with the ics... every thing works fine ...heats up on continuous gaming.. but it will not be a problem as it works under thermal specifications.. great device at a very low price ..
if u want a android device at a low cost and high configuration.. go for it :)
I'm having the same problem as yours (asd) once update to ICS.
My phone reacts terribly slow each time I select or tap. Could be around 4 seconds or more per tap. Drains my patience.
Battery is worrying too. Too hot and too short life.
mkr, 18 Sep 2012i have downloaded ics file of central europe for updating my pro, will flashing with this vers... moreThe central Europe should work fine on any global Pro with a standard QWERTY key layout.
..bro ..i am facing wifi prblm on my pro aftr updating to ics ...wifi connection fail rapidly ..jst connect fr 1,2 mints ...wht should i do ??
Updated it to ICS. No qwerty to azerty issue but I think its more of a downgrade.
Some issues I found in one day usage:
Indicator light doesn't blink on missed sms but does on missed call
Some apps unsupported eg Slovoed eng to eng classic 2.1 which works with fbreader only works on GB.
Mounting through wifi is now unsupported. Now I have to use Myphoneexplorer.
Battery drains noticeably faster.
Minor UI tweaks are not worth the hassle.
In short GB is very good so don't waste time 'upgrading'.
I hope Sony will issue further ICS updates or I'll downgrade to GB.
i have downloaded ics file of central europe for updating my pro, will flashing with this version will be suitable???
madmonk, 11 Sep 2012plz can anyone tell me if the solution has been found for the ics prblm related to lagging and... moreLagging can be solved by doin factory reset.
Keypad problem of changing from qwerty to azerty is solved in August update. Thank god
All HD games lag,especially Asphalt 6,7,Shadow Gun and GTA 3. To solve this uninstall McAfee Antivirus.
The Dark Knight Rises lags even after that. It lags on all devices with Adreno 205. Newer game needs better performance i guess
