xperia sola supports all the apps
and even most heavy-duty apps like nfs mw, nfs hot pursuit, asphalt 7 etc are supportes by it
if u want to increase speed of it then go to settings/developer options/ and then set a limit for background running apps maximum 3 to 4
and even install memory booster pro and set its settings to the craziest option.
this is how u can gt ur Xperia sola equal to any other smart phone on planet.
have fun.....! Still not satisfied then mail me

THIS PHONE IS JUNK! I've had this phone for two weeks and everyday I fight the urge to throw it as hard as I can against the nearest brick wall! $700 phone software in $200 phone hardware. Even simple tasks, have the phone hanging, freezing delaying, dropping phone calls! The GPS ON this phone is the worst I've seen in an Android!

This is my 4th android, my second Xperia after the active which was a good phone inside and out. Was hoping I'd found my android brand... Not yet I guess

Xperia Mt27i sola TERRIBLE
Xperia. Australia Service Support TERRIBLE

Can anyone plz tell me how to update xperia sola to ICS cuz I have checked alot on the phones update center and also via pc companion it says that ur device is up to date while I have android 2.3.7 and build number is 6.0.B.3.184. Plz help and aslo tell whether the ICS update is good or not? Does it consumes more ram or slows the phone down? Or is smoother then Gingerbread? Thnx

I've just planned to buy that phone! but its battery is non-removable.. so how will i manage when it will hang? many friends of mine face that problem,they probably remove battery and attach it again but i'll be out of this option and its quite natural that so many features in a cell,may face this type of particular problem.Tell me what should i do... what to do if its hang? please do comment,your opinion does matter!! Reply,please,thank u!

i still dont think it touches has lost it the innovation the creativity is all dead.the build quality is all chp.they r just trying to kill ericsson.they cud not match w550i also in future.i still remember purchasing 2 k700.for me that revelutionised mobile industry.
