This is a really nice phone. I'm using this for 7 months.
It's better not to upgrade the OS, then it become very slow. It happened to me, when the phone is connected to the PC, it was poped up saying that new updates available. Since it was suggested by the Sony PC suite, I proceed with updating the OS. Now the phone is very slow, using a Task Killer application to maintain processing speed :-(
Once you update the OS, you can't compliment on that.
The next big issue is drop down the battery level with no time. For last 7 months it happened 4 times for me. Sometimes battery level goes down from 65% to 10% with no time even the phone is on stand by mode :-(
I really like Sony series & can be recommended, the, but u need to have attention on battery level and the phone speed.

Very good and nice phone. I have been using sola for about 2 and a half months with no lags and hanging. Good phone for heavy gaming like asphalt 7, nfs mw ,eternity warriors 2,etc.
Its most good advantage is its floating touch display, due to which one can operate the phone 2cm above the screen so you dont have to touch the screen. love u sola
I bought Sola 4 months ago, It was the worst phone I got.
- I haven't received ICS upgrade till the moment.
- slow response.
- phone stops responding many times, and had to force shut down.
- many time, trying to call but the screen hangs out and I have to wait for a minute to make a call.
- there is a lock screen widget for media player that sometimes plays by it self, I'm trying to find a way to disable it.
- battery never teach the end of day.
Don't bye this phone.

Anonymous, 19 Jun 2013Hey guys which is better Sony Xperia J or Sony Xperia Sola?? Thnxxyou have the compare option on this site
Xperia Sola and Xperia J are kind of the same, the only difference is the screen size and the video quality. If you think that having HD video capturing capability the phone becomes awesome, then its wrong. If you really want to shoot videos than you can go on and buy a handy cam with far better quality. Even i have the xperia Sola but im not happy with its processing speed and battery backup, if u use that phone normally in a day you might have to charge it twice or thrice daily and without using it you will have to charge it daily. It has got the worst battery backup which will really annoy you. So in my opinion if you are confused between Sola and J then you should probably go for J becoz its design is better and its battery backup is way better. So please dont go with the HD stuff its just diverting, you can go with the Canvas HD ive come across that phone :) and its a good and fast processor phone. And if you really want to buy a phone which comes in the range of J and Sola then you can go for Samsung I8552 Galaxy Quattro, HTC Desire XDS, LG optimus L7 II P715 or Canvas HD A116
