Excerpt: I had the xperia sola from november 2012 to august 2013. I had hate this phone , because was very very slow. But display and camera was not bad. The touchscreen had some problem. Firstly was very good , later no.
Excerpt: When I bought it was a great phone. It was fast and responsive. After a few months it started to be laggy and slow and now it´s just a phone, not a smartphone. All new apps started to be slow in the middle of 2013 and the Android version is completely obsolete.
Pros: Good design, Resistent, Good features
Cons: Slow and laggy, Outdated Android, RAM always full
Summary: This product is so cool for me.What i like most about this phone is that it is sleek in design,and it is a one handed operation device.So i really like it and i just wanted an android device and not a high end one.So this is good for an average customer as a beginner to experience android at a reasonable price.
Excerpt: Its good as a all around phone. Its not into heavy gaming. Not into heavy website browsing. It can be your personal music driver coz of Walkman. Camera is good, use fixed focus for faster capturing. Floating touch is good. If you want to unlock its full potential, unlock it's bootloader and install a custom kernel and stock based custom ROM. You will be amazed what this phone can do. Just go to XDA. I still use it today as my daily phone.
Excerpt: I have this phone more than year and I can tell, this is good phone only for sms and calls. I you want use any other app, facebook, viber etc. phone is working slowly. Sola has low ram 512 mb and if it's runs slow I must turn off process, but the process starts automatically and I am turning of process permanently...
Summary: The seller had a problem with the warehouse and it took a little longer to get the phone, but he did everything he could to make it right and really took care of us. We would work with this seller again in a heartbeat. My daughter loves the phone, she has replaced her .mp3 and her old digital camera with this phone, It's perfect for her.
Excerpt: For the first 2 months it was fast and i didn't have any problem with it. But after 6 months it was getting really laggy and slow. Thinking to much when try to open an app. and sometimes its just turn off without any reason. So I didn't recommend it to anyone. Maybe its good for getting familiar with the android phones, but i didn't really recommend it for start anyway.
Pros: NFC, Camera, Miltimedia
Cons: 512 RAM, Low Battery Life, Long app opening time, Non-removable battery
Excerpt: When this phone was still running Gingerbread everything was alright, but when ICS was released it was nothing but laggy. 5 months after the ICS update, I decided to root my device and put CM10.1 on my Sola. I was very pleased at first, the rom appeared to be extremly smooth and was better in every possible way. But after a month it force-closed apps all the time and the keyboard wouldn't show up anymore, even after I downloaded a third-party one.
