Hi guys. Can anyone tell something about the audio quality? I mean music trough some nice headphones. Phones at this price range (Samsung, LG, HTC...) usually don't have very good audio, but this is Sony and that's why I'm hoping it could be as good audio player as more expensive expirias.

Is it worth upgrading from an arc?
What about battery life when browsing on 3G ?
My arc only can get about 20-30 minutes with 10% of battery when browsing on 3G, i think that's bad especially compared to iPhone4,
how about sola?
Can someone test it for me?
Thanks.

battery quality is quite good excluding internet connectivity (browsing & download are two main battery drain but this doesn't show in power option)

u can get one hour browsing for 15% battery (for light mobile adapted pages)

i dunno abt heavy browsing but download drains battery much faster

yes the sound quality through headphones is quite good

i also heard that sound quality in HTC one V was also very good

These two phones could have better design, but everything else looks amazing. Sony has done very good job!

I think the design of the sola is pretty good, very basic but stands out from the crowd.

I am assuming on 3G this phone can last for 1.5-2 days easily keeping some things in mind. I am thinking of taking up a 3G connection for my dad and see how the battery fares. But I am quite happy now with this battery for normal use.

Default upgrade to android 4

I read there is Android 4 upgrade for Sola, but when I check with PC companion it tells me the system is up2date.

How do people upgrade to Android 4?

Also when I check for latest soft on Sony's site,

Latest available software: 6.1.A.0.452
Release date: 2012-06-21

But on my phone it is:

6.0.B.1.564

(Android 2.3.7)
