Re: Xperia Sola - All issues after ICS update!

I`m disappointed too. I had 3 Samsung phones before and they performed very well. Then i wanted new one. Got 5 phones in comparison, read reviews and i picked Sola. Then i went deeper into forums and all hell broke loose. First thing no Jelly, then ICS update screwed the phone performance, then i saw, that no support in next months. This thing is normal for some small and new business, but Sony... 

But i wont give up. Hardware in this phone is good and i like the design. I just flash my sola with unofficial JB, when it`s been tested a little bit more and i can live without floating touch. But next time, Sony is not in the list.

Re: Xperia Sola - All issues after ICS update!

hi everybody,

 

here another bug or problem since i updated to ICS : slow down general performance when you have a microsdcard with huge quantity of media (64 GB mp3 in my case).

 

There is a application (sill in 1.0 release) which take many resources to scan always the sdcard contents and this thing slows down all the user experience of the phone! that is ProtectedMediaScannerTrigger.

When i was in 2.3, my 64gb card of music did not cause any problem ,and now in 4.x, it is a problem.

When i get out my sdcard, the xperia came finaly very quick, flawless, speed like a rabbit. When i put it my 64 gb memory card, then the xperia came slow again.....
