i have tested XV a lot of times and i want to share the way to really increase the battery life:
-Cpu: if you get root acces and reduce the frec. to 702 MH you can save a lot of battery having THE SAME perfomance (unless you are a gamer). Besides the temperature remains low after hours and you will increase the life of your XV and battery. I use the App No-frills CPU clicking On demand gobernator and noop. I have rooted with Doomlord.
-Brightness. Indoors: I use 4%-21% depends on the hour.i use the App Advance brightness that is the best automatic App if you are patient enought to configure it. Outdoors: if i need it, i use a widget, the widget background screen of the system 4.1.2. I also use adjuster screen to specific situations and in order to change the yellowish screen to blue.
-Coberture. I use 2g or 3g depending on the coberture. If both are good i use always 3g.
-Uninstall apps you dont need. There are some apps to save battery that only get drain more battery!
The resoult is great. I have improved around 15% of battery life when i use a lot the phone.

Xperia V ph, 08 Sep 2013Hi Guys, I bought my xperia V 2 months ago with jelly bean out of the box.Everything is smooth... morehey man, im having the same problem when i use the walkman..once i remove the earphones..the external speakers wont work.i have to turn it off & on to work again. when i try to see if theres update in the firmware..the phone always tells me that it is currently updated. maybe you could help me how to do it manually. many thanks!
brazzy, 19 Nov 2012Bought one from Docomo. Sometimes it restarts by itself, am I the only one with this problem?For restarting itself, try putting the phone in GSM only or WCDMA only mode, I experienced the same problem with my Xperia Ray....It is an android bug, which is not a hardware problem, the above mentioned methode solve the problem completely....
Awesome phone,I'm using it from last 4 months and really it's a great phone.
Super long lasting battery life and Very good camera quality.
Better gaming experience than Galaxy S3.
Really its an allrounder phone.
Now I'm thinking about buying another Xperia V.
Go Ahead Sony

Minhee, 11 Sep 2013I have a problem my xperia v always restarting everyday, I bought my phohe 1 month ago, I upgr... moreit is not normal.
4.1.2. works very fine and never rebooting.
Try to change for another xv
Had the phone for half a year now with no problems to report. Has blacked out once or twice in that time but fellow Android users assure me that it's not specific to this phone. Pull the battery and everything is back to normal. Good battery life considering how much it gets used. Easily worth the money. 13MP camera sounds better than it is. Still a good video and picture quality nonetheless. Would buy it again in a heartbeat if I had to.
From what i saw on da specifications it says the android its 4. 0.4 bt mine came wit 4.1.2 jelly b does this mean i can upgrade to another jelly b or ?
