solution if phone dosnt responds

I read a comnt whr a guy said he his phone stopped responding and he had to wait for battery to drain since the battery isnt removable.

Press and hold both the volume up key and the power
key for five seconds.
After your phone vibrates once, release the keys. The phone restarts automatically.

A "TRUE" and Unbiased user review

Yes, i am an ericsson fan and i have had 3 walkman phones before the sola.
The fone that i had before the sola was w995.
Got this phone 6 hrs ago (yup! once again flipkart didnt fail to astonish me ).
Charged it for 5 hrs to condition the battery.
LOOKS : better than what it looks in the picture. the rear is a rubberish type so scratches can be avoided...

Touch:Yup,the floating touch lives upto its expections.
Speed: Dual core CPU,IT IS LIGHTNING FAST!!!Tried a few challenging apps and games, they work flawless.

NFC: got two smart tags (red and black) one is home and black one is bed ( i dont know if the names can be changed,i will try that later)

Cam: Neutral! cant say its awesome, cant say its bad..OK type

sound quality : over the speakers - volume is good.Quality is flat.i.e lacks the warmth and depth that my w995 provdies over its unbeatable stereo speakers.
if w995 gets 10/10 for sound, then sola gets 6.5/10
over Earphones - awesome!! bass is superb (bassheads will love it!)!people looking for sound stage depth, maybe slightly disappointed.although yes,the equilizer is completely tweakable for one's likes.3d surround is a huge plus provided u have earfones that have good soundstage (i used klipsch S4 and audio technica ATHM50)
Xloud? I just belive its a marketing title! if u switch it off,the sound falls below 30% (now no phone has that low volume)
Anyways,OVerall, 9/10.

Battery: since its been just 5 hrs, cant really comment! but I believe the engineers at sony are not that foolish to power this beast with such a weak battery as many claim!there must be a reason behind it something only the "SONY" people know..and others.......JUST TALK!!!

Almost There. Definitely good.

I have been using this phone for the past week or so. When I review a phone I look at the usability, its performance and efficiency along with music quality. Here are the things I found out while using this phone

Performance - For a mid range smartphone, this phone works pretty well. The animations are snappy and there is hardly any lag ever. Response time in starting applications and application performance is also quite good.

Usability - The customization over Android done by Sony is pretty neat. I like the minimalistic and sober approach, it makes a gadget look like a gadget. Nothing is overdone, nothing left out either. The blend is near perfect. Within a few taps you have access to pretty much everything.

Efficiency/Battery life - I use my phone for tethering and connecting to the Internet. Thus it recharges and it's hard to get a correct estimate, though when I did use it for a few days without tethering I found that with moderate usage the phone does get you through the day. I mostly use it for music and frequent browsing. It won't last two days on one charge but most smartphones don't anyway. Though the new Novathor chipset is supposed to consume 40-60% less power, still Sony could have done their customers a favour and kept a 1500 mAh battery instead of 1320 mAh. Still it's not a complete deal breaker.

Music Quality - Earlier I used to have a Nokia C7 and that had a very decent deep sound experience, here the sound is not as deep as that but it's a small difference, the volume is acceptable on earphones and the quality is decent, equalizers can help you make tweaks but being an audiophile I keep them flat, only ClearBass and SurroundSound suffice for me. Bass is nicer that way. Btw I use Sennheiser CX-300 noise isolation plugs, the experience on stock headphones is never a justification of the quality of the device.

Camera - I don't use my mobile for photography hence I am not too concerned with this but the shutter key is next to a failure, you need to press it really hard. Anyway images are average in normal light, daylight photos are decent. There's too much noise reduction and the colours are a bit washed out the look is akin to water colours a bit. There is no front camera and people rant about that a lot, I am not concerned about it, if that is a must have priority please don't buy Sola but don't rant either. There are plenty of options in the market, I agree had the front camera been there it might have been more complete but it's certainly not bad.

That leaves the floating touch and storage to be discussed. I don't really use the floating touch though it works fine most times than not. Also since you have an expandable card slot storage is not an issue.

Sola is currently running Gingerbread 2.3.7 and it's a nice experience at that, with ICS there will be significant performance improvements so the experience will most likely be better still. Hope this helps.

A decent Start by Sony.

Xperia sola is a stylish but a little dumb phone as it has very disappointing battery life and edgy body cover is coated with matte layer which usually fades leaving behind the cheap and old looking phone. It has 5mp front camera but no front camera which fails it for video calling in near future. Its processor is good but RAM is very less, lowering its performance scores. Its screen stands below the AMOLED ones used in Samsung phones.
I bought it because it look good but now I plan to sell it because it feels like an uncomfortable edgy box in my pocket. Its floating touch has raised its cost to 20,000 but its hardly of any use. Moreover it has no gyro sensor. So I am changing my gears from utopian sony to reality based Samsung products (S Advance) having larger RAM, far better battery life, AMOLED display and user friendly grip which makes my thumb reach all the edges.
