JB update now available in manila...
love the UI, particularly the cam interface.
Everything seems fine for me except for the Full HD recording.
it lags or theres some sort of a delay when you capture a video and play it.
anyone experience the same prob? or what can you say after you updated your units to JB?
For the ones who didn't upgrade: I didnt make any backup but did it thru the pc copanion. All my data is preserved. In order to get the update I chanded my dns UK server works fine). I had issues with the camera and I was just going to buy a Samsung. But because I like the interface of Sony I did gave a last chance changing the dns. The upgrade takes time. It took 1.5 hours (I belive that the backup was included). No faster battery drainage after jb. But there is a new setting to preserve the battery. Use it...
I've recently upgraded to jb 4.2.1. No more camera issues + picture during video + super interface + faster + energy saver + better bluetooth. Before the update I wanted to sale it. Now I will definetly stay with Sony. Loyal customer need more often updates. If not will say just bye. Sony should invest more on the software development. And last thing... Native video still missing.

Even though I am a Lumia 920 user, I have to say, Xperia Acro S is the most balanced and long term Android phone out there in practical usage scenario.
You can get a better CPU + RAM in other phones but this phone is really balanced.
It has a retina quality screen which gives really good legibility when using. Bravia engine won't be visible to a lot of users.
Big battery which will last one day easily on moderate usage with 3G connected all the time.
Water and dust proof which actually comes handy in cities where it rains a lot unexpectedly. I have real world experience with this.
16 GB inbuilt memory is a lot for installing apps on Android for most users. Not everyone install heavy games etc. Another 16 GB can be used in MicroSD slot for saving pictures, music and videos only.
720p front camera is very handy for skype.
If you don't like the OS, install a custom ROM.
can you say which phone is better sony xperia acro s,xperia t,xperia v or tx .i am an average user
james, 01 Jun 2013-open backup and restore, select the backup destination(internal if you want to store it on th... moreThanks for thaT bro! thanks so much for that =) this helped me alot and now i can enjoy what i was enjoying on my acro S but this time with JB! ,,, AWSOME =)
-open backup and restore, select the backup destination(internal if you want to store it on the internal sd card the 11gb partition, if you use sd card it will be stored to your external sd card)
- select data types, and mark everything.
-hit backup and wait for it to finish
after you update your phone
-open backup and restore again and then select the "record you want to restore" and select your saved backup the name of the saved backup is the date you created it
-hit restore and wait for it to finish.
BTW you must have enough space on your storage because it will take a lot of space if you have a lot of apps.it can take up to 2gb of space(maximum), since it will only backup the 2gb partition on your internal memory.
If u store it on internal memory it will be stored to the internal memory card..but if u use but if you use rhe sd card it will go to the external mmc.just use it and mark everything...all your contacts,messages and apps will be fine..after u backup just restore from your backup.. When you update your phone or flash it only the 2gb partition will be wiped everything fron the internal sd card will remain...
GUYS, FOR THOSE WHO UPDATED VIA SUS:
on the step CONNECT, does it really take a lot of time before proceeding to the CONFIRM part? Been on this part for more than an hour already...
Damn. After the Jelly Bean update, the battery keeps on draining faster than before.
Just updated Acro S in Sri Lanka and quite satisfied.
Recommend to use "SONY Update Service" PC program to update rather than PCC. I've been using that to update my Xperia phones for several years and its fast and reliable.If anyone having trouble updating with PCC try SUS.Once you update, factory resetting and formatting internal storage will further optimize the phone.Make sure to keep backup of your contacts and files in SD card.(if necessary.
james, 31 May 2013just use the backup and restore by sony..everything will be fine....but do not wipe anything f... moreok but where do i back it up to?,, To the SD card or internal memory?, how do i use Restore and Back up?,, pls help ,, i already have the Update stairing at me from my PC screen. i just dont want to loose those apps and games,,,
