Well. At least Sony gave ICS to most of its phones. JB is not much of an addition over ICS. Motorola defy series on the other hand is stuck with Gingerbread. In comparison, I think that Sony has done a pretty good job. Besides, I read somewhere that JB consumes slightly more battery over ICS making ICS the most battery efficient Android to date. Given that Sony phones usually do not pack a bigger battery, I'd be happy to stay on ICS.
if sony give JB for 2011 xperia's there would just a litlle people buying the new xperia of 2012, thats a business reason n thats why no update for 2011 family! Im tring 2 understand this is the reason why, anyway its all SONY now, not sony ericsson anymore( at least in the outside not the inside)
Arc, Ray, Mini, Neo, etc r all great devices, thanks SE
shit!.. i have Xperia U and SL also.. and not get in the list of Update to JB?? why?? the specification between Xperia Go and Xperia U is same identical, but why xperia Go get Jelly Bean??
Xperai SL also same, new in market and not get JB??
next phone will be Nexus one.. no more Sony phone anymore
The reason im so angry is that we havnt recieved one decent update yet! Ics performance is a bit laggy like we were warned but sony didnt tell us that there would be bugs - like led notification light and no stereo recording for video! So we expect jellybean as it is basically ics but fixed and better. At least offer us a smooth ics experience or vanilla android as compensation sony! Even better give us a suitable replacement for lww/mini/mini pro as all your latest budget offerings have weedy old adreno 200 800mhz! Xperia u has many problems and im hearing that theyre having ics performance issues and thats dual core! If xda and cynagen can do the updates then why the hell a company like sony cant beats me!
james79, 20 Oct 2012We were promised updates for 18months and lww is only 12months old and already ics is last upd... moreThey will continue to support these phones with bug fixes of ICS. Firmware update doesn't necessary mean new android version.
maybe that would be enough. 2011 xperia phones had already received ICS updates, and if they will still receive JB, I guess that's quite too much & there's a lot of work to do again to polish everything considering the different models of the phones. "If ever" 2011 xperias will receive JB upadate,then users must be thankful, but should not demand or get mad if JB is not on the way since during the launch of those phones, JB was not "promised" only the ICS. That must be clear to everybody, even Samsung or Moto didn't give updates in many of their phones. As for the iOS, the implementation is quite easy given that Apple always has one phone only per launch and they are also the ones who produce the phones.
After using CM10 on my Neo V its pretty damn obvious that JellyBean is way more suited for Neo compared to ICS. Smoothness, responsiveness and better ram management..... These were missing in ICS. But JB has these perfectly implemented. Jellybean is smoother than Gingerbread too..... What more can I say....
Oh...and having Xperia J on the update list is downright bullshit..... Neo has 4 times better gpu for crying out loud!!!!
Time to Say goodbye to Sony Ericsson Because now all about Sony.....
Time to Replace Sony Ericsson to Sony
This is what Sony Think :)
don't be so sad guys they've done well for Xperia 2011.
Really don´t care... for some time now i´m using custom roms, and besides the lack of hdmi, work better and faster on my neo than stock ones... btw., i already hav jellybean on my neo!
james79, 20 Oct 2012Sony made a promise that they would update phone for 18months long before jb even existed! If ... moreStock with? What stock with are you talking about it's not before cause atleast they updated the 2011 xperias from GB to ICS as promised but they didn't said a JB update'll come. Did LG updated there Optimus 2x and etc to JB?, NO. Even lg's mid to low-end phones are stock with GB. Did HTC updated their Sensation to Jb?, NO. How bout their entire 2011 lineup ?,no. Samsung only updated their '2012' lineup to jb.
But yeah as the Arc S being the flagship phone of 2011 they shall atleast give an update into it.. And Jb brings project butter goodness within the OS itself.. But still, let's for sony for further details on why did they abandon the JB update for 2011 xperias..
What user experience they talking about? their ICS is laggy, if not because I root and using mod app from xda then my phone wont this smooth. JB is performance improvement which would bring better user experience to solve their problem. Just like how sony use better app in 2012 xperia which work better than 2011 app in my arc s. Marketing strategy huh? No, sony should not use marketing strategy by give no option to their customer but by give better option to other manufacture customer
Man, Stop cursing or posting negative comments here. Yes it's disappointing but wth man, 2011 Xperias are awesome devices and ICS is Enough. If you want to get JB, there's always AOSP or CyanogenMod or better leave Sony, We don't need People who's not a loyal customer. Be satisfied and be contented.
mr.Assimo, 20 Oct 2012Err.. Did sony made a promise that they'll update 2011 xperias? NO. They did'nt mentioned an... moreSony made a promise that they would update phone for 18months long before jb even existed! If galaxy mini 2 can handle jb then any 2011xperia can as they all have arm 7 adreno 205 not outdated arm 6 adreno 200! Sony are turning like samsung with lots of cheap rubbish low end phones! Only thing is samsung is learning by offering jb to lowend device while sony is repeating past mistakes like x8 x10 and xperia play which was flagship price! At a minimum arc s should get jb! Sony are a let down! They said they wont update then they say maybe and now they wont again! Stop focusin on shoddy lowend devices sony and update the already good ones! As yet you dont have a replacement for lww and xu is shoddy so we want updates like promised! Nexus is the way ahead and I now boycott sony as you lie! Now I know how xperia play owners feel! SHAME ON YOU!
Err.. Did sony made a promise that they'll update 2011 xperias?
NO. They did'nt mentioned any. But they say that they're experimenting if the phones can handle it.
Also, you already got ICS already and still feels bad? Why can't you be satisfied with ICS? It has a very good browser btw.Sony needs to hav time in updating all of there devices.
Did LG,HTC, said any updates with their entire lineups? NO. M0stly LG is lazy when it comes to update ..
Samsung only update their 2012 lineup and their 2011 mid to low-end dvices are still stuck in GB so hello? Why are u people like that? Whilst U,tipo,miro etc.. Are left w/out any statements let's wait maybe there's an update c0min too. Just be happy cause sony stills care about you..
now I cant even update my sola to ics. and facing network problem too, shame on you Sony.
Anonymous, 20 Oct 2012So glad i bought an ace 2 instead of the xperia u. Imma get jb b****Yes! Samsung devices not pretty but ace 2 has more ram than xperia u although lower ghz despite same chipset! 512mb ram isnt enough anymore sony!
