Ok, so I updated and all was fine. But now my Sola is just over a year old and battery time (without changing things) went down the drain. Major problem: non exchangeable battery.
So don't give me that sh** about free float, turning Wifi of, not updating Gmail every 5 minutes,...: been there, done that a long time ago. I have a fixed darker bnackground (saving backlight), Wifi + gps + BT turned of (yeah, that's a comfort for a smartphone, not) and all those other things that matter. When I use the camera to take a pic of something I see in a store, I kill the camera app after use (if it stays active it might the battery apparently). Nowadays I made it a habbit swiping running processes of the screen to minimize battery drain. And yet... calling for 5 minutes max a day and sending a few text messages, I can't even make it through the day.
So... what will Sony do about it? Enclosed batteries have a 2 year warranty in the EU (Belgium). Then again... it still works. I like my Sony stereo, SA-NS300, PS3 and other Sony stuff. Dell laptop might shortly be replaced by a Vaio Pro and I'm in doubt on switching from my Canon 5DII to a Sony camera... but maybe it's better to see what customer service is all about at Sony. Because this Xperia Sola is not ok, not ok at all.
