This is the reason why i have left sony.
They are always left behind in software updates.
I used to have xperia x10 no ICS update for that then i bought xperia Arc S no Jelly Bean update for that model either....
Great phones but always one step behind....

Sasmusng stash millions upon millions of $/£ into advertising there products. The more people see it the more the want it. And honestly, compared to everything else on the market in all ranges. samsung are expensive for what they are! I can honestly say, that if you were to do your market reasearch properly. You would be holding a phone by another company. like it or leave it, thats the way of the world.

It's gonna take more than xperia z/zl or whatever they are gonna launch on H2 to beat sgs4 or note3. Just because sony being a premium phone it doesn't mean its gonna boost their sales volume. These days people do enough market research before buying whatever they want, they don't choose Samsung because its cheaper.

Sony never think about user, because previous sonyericsson many model like xperia arc s, neo v, etc… they give us update ICS but this version is not working properly many bugs like camera issue ,battery, speed etc… now sony forget about that .
I am using sonyericsson xperia neo v I am facing many problem with ICS update.

What about ZL? I don't like the back of Z, it's so iPhone 4S-ish/Nexus 4ish/shatterish. lol. And ZL has red. I hope they release 4.2 for ZL as well.

I do running v4.2.1 custom ROM in my S III now, it was far far far better than Samsung stock ROM v.4.1.2

I know it was buggy on camera on custom ROM, that is Samsung issue as no proper documentation for developer.

Tired on Samsung now, is time to switch. :)
