  • Summary: I got this phone last year and after all this time of having it all i can say is that his performance sucks, i expected more from this phone, performance is bad after installing a few games and widgets the phone start to slow down or reset by itself, i installed a memory meter app and it looks like the phone always try to use a lot of memory for standard apps no matter what.

Will never buy a Sony phone again

LiSha242 "-L", Amazon
2 June 2013
  • Summary: When I first bought this phone, I really did like it. The camera quality was really average, but everything else was okay, so I was pleased with my purchase. I've had it for a few months now, and I can only call it JUNK! The phone is super slow, it seems like the camera is getting worse, and today I couldn't even get it to come on! I'm looking for a new phone right now.

Don't upgrade to ICS

Kavir, Amazon
18 April 2013
  • Summary: First off, I'd like to say that I didn't really want to purchase a Gingerbread phone. Sony however promised an update to ICS for the Sola, and so I decided to get it and wait for the update. The phone worked decently on Gingerbread, but please understand that this review was based on the premise that Sony promised me an official update to ICS, and THAT is what convinced me to purchase the phone, otherwise I wouldn't have.

Great phone........ until I returned it.

  • Summary: Yet to do the update to ICS but I love it so far. Its not like the nexus 4 but it fits easier in the hand and pocket and is a solid buy. Might notice occasional lag, but I've got very few apps running so thats forgivable. Combined with the smartwatch, its a potent combo. Update. I've used it for 2+ months now and have returned it, but asked for replacement. and this is what I notice. - Phone lags. Horribly.

Not a fan

Shanna Williams, Amazon
21 November 2012
  • Summary: I got the phone and the one thing I noticed was that when I'd make a phone call, I could not hear the person on the other end. So I always needed my headset. However, I over looked that and continued using the phone, but then the phone started freezing and eacting extremely slow. Maybe it was my particular phone, I don't know, however I am not a fan.

Useless Phone.

Cesar Souza "CesarMarx", Amazon
30 October 2012
  • Summary: Got this phone and updated to ICS. After the update, The phone became useless,First i lost WIFI signal,Then was not able to make a call Cause the number pad did`not show in the Screen. Tried to Fix with Sony Companion Software, No deal. And The Call Quality is Below Average with this phone. The phone itself looks Great, Good Feel in hand, Screen is great too. But if you cannot do basics things with it, It`s Useless.

Expected more from a Sony

Jim, Amazon
23 May 2013
  • Summary: This is a nice, light phone that feels good in the hand...but honestly, that's about as far as it goes. In fact I had mine for about a week before I packaged it back up in the box and returned it to Sony for a refund. The Android operating system is fairly average, to be honest. Marginally better than the iPhone as it's more versatile, but not a patch on the Windows OS used on Nokia phones now. But then again, Android isn't under review here - the Xperia Sola is.

Very poor quality for the price (price decreased after my purchase)

Deepak Chinnam..., flipkart.com
5 March 2013
  • Summary: The packaging from Flipkart is good, but he packaging of the product from the manufacturer is really bad. Gave me a doubt if is a used product too. After the application and removing the second protection guard, i saw that the quality of the guard is really poor. I can see waves of color gradients on the screen, though they are not seen while the mobile screen is unlocked, when the mobile is locked, it is very prominent and is making my mobile look cheap.

Sola unresponsive touchscreen problem

jrhartley, Amazon
28 November 2012
  • Summary: If you are considering buying this phone, do make sure you consult the Sony mobile forum first of all for this product. You will notice that there are a huge number of xperia sola owners complaining about the touchscreen lag issue. Basically, in cold weather, the screen becomes totally unresponsive, to the point of rendering the phone unusable.
