Re: Sony Xperia Sola Review

Sony is always lagging behind when it comes to software upgrades, they have spent an obnoxiously long amount of time to move from Gingerbread to ICS and now the same saga continues with JB, Most of the customers feel cheated when Sony releases the list of sets which will be upgraded to the next android version, and theirs don't make it to the list. Look what they did to their previous flagship, the Xperia S. People who bought it are now stranded. No wonder Sony's premium handsets get mixed reviews. They also refuse to use newer LCD technologies, sticking to their own proprietary stuff, which makes colors washed out even if you tilt the phone a little.

Anyways, back to the review. Great stuff. Good pictures, I must say, very good and detailed discussion about the phone. But yes it is overpriced compared to something like the Micromax Canvas HD which comes with a 5 inch 720p screen and 1.2 GHz Quad Core processor (albeit Mediatek one) and all the goodies minus NFC. Sony should really rejig their strategy if they're to make a comeback. Samsung's already hitting them quite hard and now even the budget runners have started to creep into their territory.

I think Sony needs to improve features and cut prices if it wants to become a serious player in the mobile phone market. Thanks for the great review The Knight.

Re: Sony Xperia Sola Review

Yeah. They should improve their pricing strategy and software upgradation. Their is no difference between Galaxy S Advance in terms of hardware. Only difference is 768 MB RAM compared to 512 MB of XPERIA SOLA, but S Advance is getting J.B and Sola is not. Cheaper Xperia E which has lower specs rather than Sola,U have J.B out of the box. I think its a big mistake from Sony.

Re: Sony Xperia Sola Review

Because for SP, I have to pay the difference money of 7000/- and for L paying 1000/-. So I am getting the XPERIA L for 15,000 (14000 for Sola and 1000 for L). My gain is 3.5k because L market price is ~ 18.5K. @ChironX

Re: Sony Xperia Sola Review

Actually i have quite another opinion about the built quality of the phone. It looks the most chinese mobile ever released from sony. The plastic used is really cheap. I have always loved all sony mobiles for built quality but this one looks like the after effect of Ericsson leaving Sony.
Sony P is much better than this one and worth paying extra money.
