mrs "G", 21 Nov 2013Is the phone really so bad after upgrading it to ics?What I can tell is after upgrade to ICS, you can enjoy more on the floating touch feature, other changes depends by the owner. For me, I don't regret for upgrade to ICS.

3.I am the average user of my phone.
4. Is upgrade it worthy?
Dear friends please help me in this matter any suggestions ???
i have been use this phone since 1 year and its still good.i dont know why so people are complaining a lot.
I've been using this phn for 8 months and so far i hvn't faced any problem frm this phn.Idk what made some people complain about this phone, maybe they just don't like the phone or expect it to function as a higher end phone from this lower mid range phone. I'm using ics rom frm sony and in developer option(available after ics update) I toggled force 2d gpu rendering for a smooth scrolling ( this may cause some apps to be unstable like few games i haven't face with them so far though)and from background process limit I have selected as "1" to save some ram. make sure you reboot your phone once a day to clear out the cached memory. using a task killed may speed up your phone but best way to clear cached memory is rebooting but ofc that is just imo. when it comes to playing heavy games such as dead trigger 2,asphalt 7, make sure u reboot ur phn and thn select background process limit to 1 to minimize lag and to have a smoother gaming experience. battery isn't strong in this phn. With mid use (few calls, alot of txting, few web browsing and like 30mins of gaming) i manage to pull around 12-14hrs which is more thn enough for me. there is also a standby mode to extend the battery life although this feature has a bug which won't make the led notification light work properly. there is always google to find solutions for the phn's problem and also to find the way to get the maximum use of the phone.
