xperia sola horribly slow....

Hi

 

I bought my xperia sola 3 years ago but since 6 months its ultra slow. To open an app like whats app takes 20seconds sometimes, same for the camera app. Its almost impossible to take pictures. I also get the "run out of disc space" message when iam in picture mode, but i have more then 500MB free disc space.

 

I did a complete reset on my phone which deleted everything, it was working then for a few days, but now i have the same problem and i just installed 3-4 apps on it. Nothing special..,,

 

Is there anything else i can do? I also set the phone to 1 background process but that didn`t help.

 

 

Thanks for every help.

Jan

Re: xperia sola horribly slow....

3 years ago it would have been fine but over time app developers make apps more defined and larger in size because they can do more now than they did 3 years ago so this accounts for your device running slower due to the extra app size and need for process speed

Re: xperia sola horribly slow....

i partly aggree as the technology changes so quickly, but as i said i have really simple apps running like "whats app" and "dictionary" or a "tube map". That`s it honestly. I am not running expensive game apps or anything similar. I use my phone just for taking calls, taking pictures and occationally to browse in the internet, that`s what i did 3 years before and i think nothing has changed since then.

You could try to look for older versions of the apps and avoid the latest app updates.
