wreck, 09 Jul 2013ICS UPDATE IN XPERIA U. there are so many problems, ill list the top few. first of all, ics... moreforgot to mention the occasional hangups and auto restarts..... ie; screen turns white, then turns off by itself, then starts up again..
MD99, 07 Jul 2013hey wreck, can i ask you why? why do you say not to update it?!ICS UPDATE IN XPERIA U.
there are so many problems, ill list the top few.
first of all, ics is hell 'n xperia u not because the phone got low specs, but due to Sony releasing a less optimised and buggy version of ics. and not even bothering about releasing a good update.
1.multitasking is gone, you cant run music player and firefox with couple of running tabs together, and send a message at the same time, one of them force close,
too poor for a dual core 512mb device. works in gb though.
2. camera clarity drops to poor from good, besides that, takes atleast 15 secs to focus, on top of that, the camera takes the photo after the flash has come and gone, if you use focus.
night photography is an utter nightmare.
3. video player shows scales in both default player and other players using hw mode. A result of low ram or low processing speed. the ics uses too much ram that the players cant utilise the hardware properly. not just in hd, but also in wvga videos.
4. takes a loooot of time to get charged compared to gb.
5. overall performance of the phone is gone, you can no longer get the snap second quickness of gb in xperia u.
6. free ram drops atleast by 40 mb.
and dont believe if someone said ics through pc suite update is great. I did and ended up in service center after a month of miserable smartphone xperience.
right now, multitasking with whatsapp, wechat, opera and music player. i'm happy.
I havent tried the. 89 ics version or the cyanogen updates that are available through unofficial updates. and I dont know if its really good as some claims. I am horrified enough with the official update and donot plan to visit the service center right now, if those too turn out bad. asfaik update should make the phone beter, not make it worse.
im talking about the official 6.1,1.b.10 update available through pc suite. if anyone say it is better or good as gb, feel free to electrocute him.
Speaker stops working for no reason. 6 months old. Not even my BlackBerry gave this much trouble (wishing I had a BlackBerry again!!) Xperia U is absolute garbage, an absolute no-no

Lee cardio, 08 Jul 2013How can i revert back to 2.3 gingerbread from ICS anyone please help ??Hey I did it... I've downgraded my ICS to Gingerbread. I went to Sony service center and I told them that after updating to ICS I'm facing so many problems... So they've downgraded it and they said that by default software of U is Gingerbread. You can simply go and ask them to do it 4 free if it's under warrenty.
