The main drawback is BATTERY life. It drains out like any thing even if there is a normal usage only.. Before JB update it was getting hot horribly & now that issue is fixed upto an extent.. but the battery suckss..!! :(
Continued from my last post....so the final for user is a clear ram after being use from system...theori for android: if ur system use more ram that mean ur system more fluid and even ur use galaxy s4 that state 2gb of ram,u only got 1.5gb user available....tq....correct me if im wrong....
A lot of comments here is about the RAM,let me clear something,this is not only for SONY but all smartphones,all the ram capacity state on the paper is a actual ram from the ram cip,ram chip is a hardware on ur phone motherboard,operating system on pc/laptop/smartphones/tablet/etc....need ram to running propely example display,to make ur clock,date always update,to running system ui and many more...so all of this use ram from the same ram cip at your motherboard,

AnonD-122051, 15 Aug 2013I have been using xperia SL for last 7 months.
main problem is camera. Low light even with fl... moreIn a way you are right since you are using the JB. However, the cam performance of this phone on the ICS was all together a different story. While the latest camera software in T & TX improved the post processing resulting in to better detailed shots, it took away greater control from the user over the camera. In ICS or shall I say the previous camera software from Sony (without the Superior Auto) the user was provided with greater control over the cam. So if you knew what you were doing, you'd be able to get low light shots that can be breath taking and I mean that seriously as I have used the device in both JB and ICS.
To explain that briefly, in ICS you could fiddle with the Exposure and ISO levels while in the Night Scene mod. This allowed the user to make better use of the camera and so some real creative shots could be made in the low to no light conditions.
Ps. I hope that Sony brings back the good things there were in the previous cam UI including the Infinity focus mod in the video recording.
AnonD-175644, 14 Aug 2013Wich one is better? Xperia V or Xperia SL?Definitely without a doubt Xperia V. Its better than SL in all respects except for the camera. SL has a superior camera performance and I am saying that from first hand experience.
Balu, 17 Aug 2013How can I downgrade the os to ICS back? JB is not a good one for me. Pls help...You can do it through "flash tool". If you know rooting and stuff then it should be easy other wise...
So download the flash tool from the internet and flash the desired Stock Rom (ftf file) by following the steps given on any website that has such an info. You can get Stock Rom i.e. the FTF file from here,
Hope that helps.
How can I downgrade the os to ICS back? JB is not a good one for me. Pls help...
I just bought this pone a week back.
And i am loving everything about this phone except battery.
It just drains too quickly.
Won't even last 4 hours of usage.
I am on .211 JB firmware.
Anybody have a solution for the battery or know any app that will boost it up?
Thanks in advance :)
AnonD-175644, 14 Aug 2013Wich one is better? Xperia V or Xperia SL?SL is better in CPU, MEMORY. While V is better in Internet Speed and water proofing. Go for SL
What are the things that sony provite in the box (what we will Get)? Help me.... I will buy any xperia on next week
§ubbu, 14 Aug 2013very nice pallavi m using dis phn.....xcellent feautres buy it quickly...how is the battery
I have been using xperia SL for last 7 months.
main problem is camera. Low light even with flash photos are horrible.Day time photo are good.
there is a focus problem in camera at low light .
You will get embarrased if you snap photos at low light.
Problem may be over compression and excessive noise reduction at driver level which cannot be rectified by any app.
Dont buy this phone if you want good camera.
Anyway i am on JB .211 version
