The battery life of Sola is crap...Specs say
Stand-by time: Up to 470 h (2G) / Up to 475 h (3G).
I never got more than 12 hrs. Its irritating.
So, here's my opinion when upgraded my Sola to ICS. "Not bad at all". Many sola users said that ICS update is crap. Then i take the risk and decided to give ICS a try. Unresposive touch screen and lag when using keyboard problem that i got when still running GB is now gone with ICS update. Phone performance is great (better than GB in my opinion). My phone just running fine with ICS update until now. I even added Xperia Yuga homescreen mod and made my Sola even more awesome. Battery drain a little faster when in ICS update (but i believe that's because i'm using Xperia Yuga homescreen that really drain battery). Overall, great phone for a middle-range class. ICS update not as bad as they said.
Normally devices have 2 types of memory, 1) Internal or Device and 2) External or memory card. But it has system of 3 crap memory, 1) Intrnal; Device 2) Internal SDCard and 3) External SDCard or memory card. Really and really bogus thing about this device is you can not use the removable memory card to install apps of any kind. It's just good as a pen-drive like use to store files. It also doesn't support wireless ad-hoc connection. All I want is to get rid of it...

I purchased Sony Xperia Sola Mobile. But I am
unable to add a google account to it. It comes
with Ginger Bread OS.
In the setup, google, facebook and exchange
activesync are der, but i cant access google
icon. on clicking on it nothing happens. i am
able to add face book account. When I click on
"Market Icon" its asking "You Must add an
account to the device to continue. Do you
want to add one now?". When I press yes, its
coming back to home page.
I reset the mobile and tried again. the result
is same. I used Sony PC companion to upgrade
the os, but its saying my system and softwares
Can any one help me?
it's a great phone..using 4 6 months..no complaints..perfectly alright....
