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 game...

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 pret...

Good phone,except the battery,512MB RAM is not enough.

The phone is really good,the display is bright and vivid,sound is also good.
Camera is not something ground breaking,but still good.
Sound is also loud enough.
But the battery is a bit disappointing,discharges very fast,you can enable extended standby mode(only available in ICS) to save battery.
Phone runs smooth in Gingerbread,but lags in Ice Cream Sandwich,512MB RAM is not enough and sadly wont get Jelly Bean update.
Games also runs fine.
I wish this phone had 1GB RAM and front camera.
If y...

Excellent

Using it for a week now & quite satisfied with it. This phone has a premium feel to it. The display is of far better quality than those with more catchy names. Its fast, has amazing audio & video playing qualities, haven't played a game though. Floating touch doesn't work too well for me but social networking is just awesome.The headphones packed in belt out sound like a dream. Download a good video player like MX and feel the difference while watching movies.Battery works very well provided...

Lots of problems

I had been a fan of Sony Ericsson phones in past, but this xperia is a piece of crap. It keeps rebooting without any reason at regular intervals, mobile network comes and goes randomly, battery drains out rather quickly and the camera is not upto the 5 MP mark.
When you zoom the camera picture, you will find many speckles, even when taken in daylight.On the other hand, my Samsung Galaxy S gives a clean picture at the same resolution.
So don't waste your money on this crap, only it's looks an...
