Anonymous, 20 May 2012Battery is pathetic. Unfortunately this is one area where Sony has gone horribly wrong. Why co... moreI agree! In fact one reason I am contemplating Xperia p over sola is because the WhiteMagic technology supposedly uses lesser battery. The 16GB-no card is a bummer there though.
I really wonder why the manufacturer's keep giving us better screens and better procs only to keep the battery as a bottle neck.
Amber, 20 May 2012Hello, I would like to know if the Sony Xperia Sola has something similar to the Swype feature... moreYes... altough the battery backup is a bit low ,, It is an awersome phone !!! and also sony will be rolling out the official ICS(4.0) update recently so u can easily upgrade to 4.0 :)
Be sure to also check HTC one v , Motorola Astrix 2 or the xperia U (if u need a front facing camers)
May Novathor U8500 use less energy to save for long live? capacity battery is very poor! So boring!
Amber, 20 May 2012Hello, I would like to know if the Sony Xperia Sola has something similar to the Swype feature... moreYes, the 4.0 ICS update will be available soon for the whole new Sony Xperia series, but the launch is with GingerBread 2.3 for now.
Excellent phone! Ever since I bought it 2 days ago, I find new features that delight me. The 3d panorama feature is mindblowing. the video clarity is too good. Sweep for text input is very easy to use. The size of the phone is just perfect to hold - not too big, not too small. The white color Sola looks classy. The battery back up is quite good, for a smartphone. And the best part is the price.. Too good to be true! This is yet another sixer from Sony's team! Hurray!
I am planning to buy this phone, Can anyone tell me about the battery backup????? My usage would be 1 hour of internet, 1 to 2 hour of music, 2 hours of calls and 20 SMS to the maximum. Will the battery last for 1 full day for the above usage?????
Is there any guide already, how to "root" this phone?
The number of useless applications is worth to violate the warranty. Facebook app would be first to go.

Battery is pathetic. Unfortunately this is one area where Sony has gone horribly wrong. Why couldn’t they just provide a 1500 mAh battery? The phone lasts a day on minimal to moderate usage. One of the major battery consumer is Android OS services – I think this is happening because of the bloat ware already installed. God knows how many times you will have to charge it if you play a game or watch a movie on it. For ex: today the phone went to 13% in 24 hours on just some voice calls and nothing else. This was after disabling background data, disabling data connection/auto sync, turning off Bravia engine and setting the screen brightness at 40%.
Hello, I would like to know if the Sony Xperia Sola has something similar to the Swype feature in Samsung phones. Is the battery back up good enough? Can we upgrade to Android 4.0 without causing disruption?
i think i just hv interest on this phone...just wanna ask, is the loudspeaker produce nice & crisp sound? and how about the battery life? is it bad, ok or great? anyone experience it plezz reply....
Altex, 18 May 2012Is possible to replace the battery in official service to some higher capacity type? 1 320 mAh... moreProbably not. When you put in a larger battery the phone does not recognise the additional size unless it is programmed for it.
For this many pixels and sized screen that battery should be ok.
