@ zakk87, not really. What if..................JB slows down the sola even further?
I just want a downgrade button! I will make my peace with 2.3 version!

It wont. Look at specification of Nexus (the same like Arc or Arc S - same SOC, same amount of RAM), and take a look at Xperia J (MSM7227A, Adreno 200, 512RAM - old chip with ARMv7 instruction - officially Sony will update it to JB). Sony is playing with us.
We have U8500 Dual Core with Mali-400MP(single core) GPU (compared to Adreno 205-used in xperias 2011) It's a great spec for 2012 year. I think 6.1.1.b.1.10 is a first ICS release, we must give time to Sony to convince us to stay with this company.
All Xperias 2012, all Xperias 2011 and Xperia X10 can handle Jelly Bean...

I am quite happy. There are some issues, but so there were issues in GB as well. ICS runs smooth on my Sola and everything looks better than on GB. And I believe that there are many happy Sola ICS users who don't even know about the existence of this forum.

in the beginning the when we upgraded the phone to ICS battery life was improved, but after some days, it is dying like anything, used phone in power saver mode also but still the condition is same...

I loved my new phone for about a week and a half then PC companion gave me the option to upgrade to ICS (Build 6.1.1.B.1.10)
BIG mistake, I'm experiencing all the symptoms mentioned on the first post. It's so slow now, and a bunch of popular apps (latest versions) are working terribly now. (Already tried the factory reset and all of that)
***SONY please provide a new ICS update or give us a simple way to go back!!****
You are loosing customers here, I bought this on Amazon and already posted a review, please give us something good so I can edit it.
I had recommended this phone to a friend, I just messaged him saying to only buy it if he can live with not upgrading to ICS

i've been using sola since four months. gingerbread worked just fine and i was so happy with my phone. but just when i got ICS, things just got sored up.....the phone has become terribly slow and i m highly disappointed cause inspite of so many options i opted by trusting sony.....i feel jealous of friends having a low end phone with mediocre specs enjoying a smoth ICS experience......do something fast sony....or else it will be downfall of ur image.

Well, any hopes for any kind of update or to Jelly Bean HOPING it would be back to 'normal' operating speed?

I respect you patience. As far as I am concerned this is too much for me. Last week I finally got a new phone (no, not from Sony this time) and I'll sell my Sola. The way how Sony treats Sola users is unacceptable.
