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...
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.
Excerpt: i have this phone for more than 4 months and its very good and u must add the floating touch (Gloving touch) it is very helpful the only thing is the battery and the android version it must has jeally ben (4.1.2) now it has ics (4.0.4) but very good
Excerpt: i have this fone for about 7 month and i am truly loving it it runs any game vice city to most wanted even if the games arnt compatible o the market for eg. Asphalt 6. If ur fone ever lags just change ur process to 1-4 helps run games super smooth.
Excerpt: It's been 5 months since I used this phone. At first, it's good but as you have more numbers of applications, it's really annoying because it keeps on lagging. I am using Nokia E5, and comparing to Sola, my E5 has better camera and speaker. but this is not android that's why I bought one. I was thinking that choosing this model is far better than Samsung Galaxy S but apparently not.
Pros: Display, Quality of images, Multimedia, NFC
Cons: Battery, Slow to respond, No front camera, No jelly bean update yet
Excerpt: The Xperia Sola is my first smart-phone running Android, and the experience I've had with it comes close to abysmal. From the moment you turn on the phone, to the moment you start doing the simplest of tasks, like making a phone call, you start noticing how terrible it is. The small amount of RAM (512mb) translates into constant lagginess and the phone freezing a lot. Most of the functions the phone does, it does terribly.
Pros: Vibrant display, Great design
Cons: Battery life, Non-removable battery, Horrible call-quality, No Jelly Bean, Constant lag
