Been a week now since I bought a Sola and so far so good..not an issue whatsoever. At first I was dissappointed by the placement of the speaker as it gets muffled quite easily, and I was afraid I won't be hearing anything if I place the phone under a pillow (which I do every night). It turned out that it was okay. The camera ain't that great at all unlike my old K850i but that's ok since I do not intend to use the camera as often anyway. The only thing that really worries me is that the battery is not replaceable.
Call volume is good enough for me. Battery life is about average for an android phone. Floating touch is nice to have. NFC is also great. Overall this phone strickes a balance between function and form.
Question to all who say's that it has hanging prob:
how much micro sd you used?
how many games u installed before you experience this? or this happens beforehand?
thanks! i like this phone but reading all your comments makes me think twice..
Hi all, i've read a lot of comments, suggestions regarding buying a mid range smartphone, i've considered HTC One V, Xperia U, Galaxy Ace 2 and Xperia Sola, HTC One V was my first choice, but after reading so MANY bad comments about it(phone stops working, yellow spots, etc), forget it, then Xperia U, almost perfect, so cheap for its specs, but as i said ALMOST perfect, i think 2GB for APPS, 4 GB storage is not enough for a smartphone(though USB OTG is an option, but im not buying it, its kinda weird for a cp to have its memory external), now, Ace 2 VS SOLA, in my opinion, they are equal, pros and cons on both sides make them equal for me, but i think my personal choice is SOLA, why?, because it looks 10x (or more) better, lol, ive seriously read all comments, i think the only thing that can change my mind is when many SOLA users starts complaining about their handset here, as im afraid, first batches of phones might not be perfect, thanks.

Lone Ryda, 05 Jun 2012Hey, I purchased the Xperia Sola a couple of days ago and I'm looking to get a micro sd car... moreYes class 6, would be better, i got one few days ago, better read write speed then class 4, it'd be much better if you can go for class 10

Who got Xperia Sola?Got how many problems?Pls tell me the problems of this phone because i don't want to regret.Tks...
hmmm.. looks like more people are having problems with this phone because of the non-removable battery (hang problems)... i think that's something to consider now, as i need my phone to work properly everytime, now im really confused between SOLA and Galaxy Ace 2, SOLA is much COOLER than Ace 2, but now im getting the feeling that Ace 2 might work better...

STYX, 05 Jun 2012Where is a problem? Just insert microSD up to 32Gb…. More than enough…. (I use xperia Neo…)here's the thing dude, im addicted to apps and games, i install a lot of them, we all know that not all apps can be moved to SD card right?, that's why im asking if i can use the 5GB for apps, cause they say in xperia U, only 2 GB for apps, now does anyone know if that 5GB is ok for apps?
