I eked about 3.5 days out of my first post-ICS charge on the XU, whereas 2 days was more typical on Gingerbread. However when the phone is actively in use, it seems to drain power slightly more quickly, probably reflecting the memory management struggling as described.

Xperia U is now the same price and can be found cheaper than lww now which suggests that retailers know about the faults with many xperia u - im not saying all. Xperia Sola although more expensive would be a more satisfying purchase!
AnonD-83087, 28 Nov 2012Have more advantage in ICS than GB. Is it smooth & suitable for X U? Truthful answer: I'd probably not have bothered. The advantages and disadvantages about balance. For further advice you will need to seek a full review.
sss, 27 Nov 2012@Niyo- upgrade it to the android OS v.4.0 ..it will work well :)More smooth, battary backup is grater than GB?
Mdsr, 27 Nov 2012Bro ICS is available in Pakistan. I updated my Xperia U to ICS almost a month ago. You will ne... moreOh ok, thanx dude.. I'll update my pc companion. It asks me every time. But I didn't update it.
AnonD-83087, 28 Nov 2012After upgrade ICS it would be slow? if slow is it possible return GB?ICS's memory demands are a bit higher, so since that means apps need to swap in and out more, they don't sleep quite so soundly when inactive, which does make it a bit less responsive in practice (and can also have a modest extra hit on battery since more work has to be done). I have noticed one or two outright bugs, which may or may not be connected with memory management.
There is no official way to downgrade, other than paying a Sony service centre. I have heard reference to downgrades via rooting, *if* you have access to the original GB ROM image (I don't) but that would certainly invalidate warranty, and I am not sure how easy it is in practice.
After upgrade ICS it would be slow? if slow is it possible return GB?
