These are some screen shots from my Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman[WT 19i] which I updated to Android 4.0 [precisely version 4.0.4].
Now, I was a little skeptic about the update as my Walkman phone has 512 MB of RAM and 1Ghz of processor, I just updated the phone for the sake of trying out what the Sony people have made available for a mid range phone. I was seriously looking forward to a visit to a Sony service center in case I would have wanted a gingerbread rollback[officially]. That was before updating the phone.
Sony Ericsson had announced this update last year in September, but after updating the phone and having used it for two days, I can say, the update was worth the wait.
Now, it took me about 75 minutes to update over a 512Kbps connection.
After the update phone took about over 3 minutes to boot up. The startup logos have changed and a Walkman logo has been introduced, which gave a really nice feel to the phone.
Although, I was looking forward to update thinking they might have worked on the battery backup, but it is almost same as gingerbread.
The best part about the update is the phone’s performance has not been affected. It lagged once or twice right after the update but it has not lagged ever since I rebooted it once.
The look and feel is almost the same but icons have changed and so is the Camera App.
As for the Front Camera feature. Please check the last image. On your phone tap on the area I have marked (SCN AUTO), a menu should open and there will be an option for selecting the FRONT CAMERA.
A new Face Unlock feature has been added.
The Recent app list which opens up by keeping the home key pressed for long, has gone major re-design and looks far better than before.
The screen shot option has been removed from Power button menu. It took me a while to find out how to take screenshots but here is how, long press HOME KEY and DOWN VOLUME KEY together.
I will post a detailed review soon as I am still getting hold of the update. You can update your Live with Walkman by connecting your phone to PC companion for Windows or Sony Bridge for Mac.
If you are a Live with Walkman user, who has updated to 4.0, I would like to know your opinion, if you need help, drop comment below, stating your problem, I’ll get back to you.
