Android Gingerbread Operating System
The Xperia sola runs the Android 2.3 operating system (dubbed Gingerbread). It features a cleaner, more refined interface with new icons, improved top notification bar, and more intuitive navigation.
Multitasking in Gingerbread allows you the ability to run more than one app at a time. If you're playing a game, you can easily switch to an incoming e-mail and then switch back to the game without losing your place. And like the previous version of Android ("Froyo"), Gingerbread provides support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full Web.
A new onscreen keyboard makes it easier to type thanks to additional spacing between the keys and larger font sizes. And the more you use the keyboard, the easier typing will be as the enhanced suggest feature records previous input history to make better suggestions.
The Xperia sola also brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services you use every day. It also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail. And through the Google Play store, you'll get access to thousands of useful applications, widgets, and fun games to download and install on your phone, with many more apps being added every day.
This unlocked cell phone can be used with a GSM network service provider. It does not come with a SIM card, and it requires that you provide a SIM card for usage with your selected service provider.
This phone can be paired with 800/850/1800/1900 MHz UMTS/HSPA 3G networks in the United States (as well as 900/2100 MHz 3G networks found around the world, including in Europe and Asia). In areas not served by a 3G network, you'll continue to receive 2G data service via the EDGE network (depending on network compatibility).
Note that the downloading of maps, games, music and videos and uploading of images and videos involves transferring large amounts of data. Your service provider may charge for the data transmission, and the availability of particular services and features may vary by carrier.
This phone comes with a full manufacturer's warranty (1-year).
Top Customer Reviews
Lacking a front camera but that doesn't matter now because data is no longer truly unlimited. The Ice Cream Sandwich update is due anytime now so if you want a small, up to date phone without a huge price tag, this is it!
I use the phone for phone, texting, listening to podcasts, following news, GPS navigation, social media. The one thing missing out of the box is a good speed dial/voice dial but I was able to add these from Google Play.
The camera is fine in good light but not so good in low light. The flash isn't very strong. There is no front camera. But of course if you want these features you can pay a bit more and get them. Since they're not that important to me it's great that this phone exists at this price point.
Update: I updated two weeks ago to Ice Cream Sandwich despite some reviewers expressed regrets but I was really relieved and happy to find out that the update made my Sola even better in some areas: resolutions more crisp, camera resolution better, and most apps can now be accessed more easily. Apps that have been previously accessed now automatically terminate after several minutes of non-use which helps preserve processor commitments, ram load, and battery reserves. Maybe it helped (per my updating habits with my previous mobiles) that after updating to ICS I immediately did a complete factory reset to restore ICS to its "virgin settings" which possibly cleaned out inefficient Gingerbread remnants and unnecessary old app gunk. HOEVER, I did notice that after the uodate, the phone became more sluggish, call signal weaker, and battery now really bad. I contacted Sony since it was under warranty to ask thenm to simply try to do something about the weaker antenna and mailed it in (my expense) and when it was returned to me a few weeks after, nothing hs changed.
I wonder what is happening to Sony. Not only are its products becoming increasingly of inferior quality, its customer service is awful.
It's the software which is not in line here. I came from a middle-priced Samsung (Galaxy ACE) and was supposedly "up"grading to this device. It might have been an upgrade from the hardware standpoint, but definitely a downgrade on the software side. Android's not to blame, because both devices came standard with Android 2.3. It's the manufacturer's customization of the OS what makes the difference. A few examples:
-- Destktop: You can't add/remove main desktops. 5 is all you have, no less, no more. Also, you can't jump from desktop #5 to desktop #1 without passing thru desktops #2, #3, #4. My previous Samsung allowed me both to add/remove desktops as I needed them and direct jumping from the last desktop to the first in both directions.
-- Lock screen: There's the usual "lock" screen to which you can add a password for additional privacy, but here's the problem: when you grab your phone and it's obviously locked, you have to both unlock the phone (slide the lockpad) AND write the password. Two steps instead of just the single step of writing the password.
-- Under-desktops: well, I made up this name as I don't know how to call them, but I'm referring here to the wallpaper-less desktops in which you can find all your aplications. There's no limit to these (theoretically) as they are progressively added as you install new applications.Read more ›
