Xperia Sola - All issues after ICS update!

Hi guys,

Here's a list of issues that came up AFTER the ICS update which is supposed to make things better and faster.

1. Call volume is very low.

2. When you swipe to receive a call, the screen hangs!

3. 80 - 90 % of RAM is always used.

4. Touch on phonebook and wait for at least three seconds to five seconds for the logs to come - This is with hardly ten logs and less than 250 contacts, mind you!

5. Swiping from screen to screen is slow, considering the Dual Core 1GHz Chipset.

Dear Sony,

Do we have a solution because as I can see, I am not the only one complaining about slowness in Xperia Sola. Slightly frowning Face

Here is what all I have tried.

Repair using PC companion - No use.

Repair / Reinstall using SUS - No use..

Reset to factory settings - No use..

Reset settings to default - No use!

Please reply!

yes, we need a fast update. I can't hear anything/anyone during call.

actually after my update, call voice and generally all sounds got higher, but the rest is just the same. slowness of the phonebook is a killer fail. The news about JB doesn't look good also. I feel like we won't get anymore updates or fixes.  I hope Sony gives us what we expect from them.

I'm sorry to hear. As for now my only suggestion would be to contact your local support team for info about how to downgrade your phone.

It is really sad that Sony says "downgrade" instead of saying "update".

Re: Xperia Sola - All issues after ICS update!

The local dealer of sony is just the nail on the coffin. First there was a strike saying service centers will not open as the ericsson is no longer with sony (No idea how it affected them though).

Dear Johan,

Why will not sony support a downgrade of select phones with issues?

Am sure a lot of users will be happy with just a "downgrade" button!

Regards,
Raghu.M.C

I think you mean: Johan, don't be a lazy developer and jump to Jelly Bean and support our new 2012 phone, and listen to your customers...
