This phone has been amazing throughout..... with our without the ics update! There were certainly a few advantages on gingerbread but the ics update just makes it almost a whole new phone! And I completely agree that the Walkman and album apps are just extraordinary and the online mode for the both powered by gracenote is too cool.......... gives the player an edge above the rest! I would definitely suggest this phone as it hasn't given me any trouble yet and yes, the ics update is a must have despite all the heated up discussions!

Hey guyzz, I notice especially transition like gng from one screen to other screen as the widgets are opening in few seconds...who all are experiencing it pls share here...Is there any solution??
wanna check with you guys. I've got this phone for about 3 days & got it updated to Android 4.0.4.
so far, i connect to my WIFI everyday. For the past few days, i do view facebook through my phone, download short movies from youtube downloader (but not every single minute), did made some calls & do view my phone by turning on screen & off screen often.
Is this consider heavy user? cos my battery is like draining really fast & i need to charge my phone not even after a day. (-_-''')...
are you guys facing the same issue?
*** i was a SE lover & i just changed back fr HTC legend which i had used for 2 yrs.

lara, 30 Jun 2012why this fon cannot 3GWhat are you talking about?
Sony omitted the "Music & Video" on their Facebook Inside Xperia but they retained "Music" only on ICS upgrade. I don't know why Sony did not include both (Music & Video) since the video is a nice feature where you can easily see all videos being posted by all your Facebook friends.
Everyone update your SXS to Android 4.0.4 ASAP! It's a huge improvement and very smooth. Also battery drainage improves 100%. I'm very satisfied with this update. You will get the best Android experience (including face unlock and many more...).
To update without pain:
Download Sony Update Service software from sonymobile.com , then install, run and wait. Follow instructions and wait for update to be downloaded and installed. Finish!
