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Cons: Slow and laggy, Outdated Android, RAM always full
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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
Pros: Vibrant display, Great design
Cons: Battery life, Non-removable battery, Horrible call-quality, No Jelly Bean, Constant lag
Summary: No much point in commenting about the hardware specs of this device: they are public and you know what you're getting beforehand. Suffice to say you're getting a medium priced cell-phone with all expectable addons (GPS, FM radio, digital camera and so on) and that the device is aesthetically...
Summary: Though this is a very nice phone, it would not connect to a secured home wifi network, though all my other devices do. It did connect to unsecured wifi hot spots. I worked with Sony but they could not help resolve this issue. So I chalk it up to a software bug in their firmware.
