Guys PLZ HELP!!.. My month old Xperia Sola is having issues..The battery indicator(at the top-the icon and percentage in settings)is wrong(it alwats shows/indicates wrongly).
**I had my phone shuting down at 25%-20% charge and if i charge it,it wil start charging from 1% or so
** sometimes if i switch of my Phone at 60% and turn it on the battery indication would have changed to 40% or so.
I'm having Android 2.3GB OS, even though update is available to Android 4ICS OS but i haven't done it as many people were saying there are issues n bugs in it.
*so can u plz tel me a method to sought out the problem..
*can i do PC Companion repair without updating??
To all those having issues with ICS update try this:
1. Battery - Initially it was extremely poor for me. But after 3 or 4 recharge cycles i m getting around a day and half of standby time, maybe 3 hrs of talktime (cos I m definitely getting 2hrs continues). In addition I also went to Settings> Power Management> Extended Standby Mode.
2. Laggy - Yes initially it was. Then i tried playing around with the settings. Go to settings>Developer Options>Background Process Limit>No background processes. Restart. DONOT restart cos the setting will be reverted to default and u ll have to change it again. I noticed the phone was not at all laggy. Even after playing a song with the visualizer on and also playing the "World of Goo" :). U can also give animation scale delay and lots of other tweaks available in the Development Options in the settings page
Bottom Line - This is a very very cool phone (with music player visualizer, full floating touch capability, new album & video section etc) especially after the ICS update. Dont know whether its ICS or Sony tweaks but i m loving it.
Agreed it has bugs, but with this much functionality i m not going to commit suicide either. Bugs will subside. I m sure. 7yrs been with Sony since SEk750i, never had any complaints. I even threw my previous Xperia X10i to the ceiling after having a fight with my gf and luckily it hit the fan. the screen was a bit cracked just on top. No other issues watsoever. I used it for another 6 months after which i had another fight and I threw it on the floor with all my might. Now my Xperia and gf are both X. But I still have my X10i as souvenir though. Product quality - Sony rules. You might have a different opinion, I do respect that but i dont care either.
Ps: Try using Sennheiser CX175 earphones with Sola.. U ll be blown away
Eir, 26 Oct 2012Great phone. Just stick with Gingerbread and don't upgrade to ICS. Why?
sony xperia sola doesn't hve fnt camera upgradable 4.0 n't to jelly bean but in samsung s duos android 4.0 ice cs upgradable to jb and has front camera
I Have recently shifted from Nokia E72 to Sony Sola.
The Looks anbd Feature lits was impressive and hecne I went ahead and bought the SOny Sola.
Sola is now with Andriod 4.
I have been centrain issues on the phone which mainly seems to be the issues with the Software of the phone.
After certain usage the Phone is not able to make outgoing telephone calls - On restarting the phone it works.
The Battery Life is very poor does not last me even for one day. My old E72 which is more than 2 years old gives me a better battery Life.... guess that is the price which you pay for larger Display and Andriod Operating system.
The touch screen response at time is very slow this again looks like it is an operating system problem.
I have experiance such problems every time you buy a new phone. I had similar issues with Nokia E72 but the problems had got fixed with their subsequest software releases.
Hope Sony will alos reolve these issues soon.
The Moral of the Story is that do not buy a new phone unless the phone has been in the field for more than 6 Months.
Anonymous, 25 Oct 2012where did you buy your sola? how much? and since when you buy this fone? i have read many thre... moreim using xperia sola for almost 2 mos.. i didnt xperience any abnormalities with this phone.,,, im a gamer & there is no lag,,, dead trigger is awsome w/ this phone... buy it at premium logic for 10,500 cash only... im alsp frpm philippines.... you will not regret buying sola... i wish it has a bigger screen....
rep @hridi -I put all my music and vids to my external sd. the gallery and music player detects all the music on my sd. If you want to view files from your external card go to astro file manager press up then the ext_card folder is your external sd card. Transferring files is pretty easy plug your phone to your pc and both internal and external storage appears.
