I Have A Sony Xperia Play and A Xperia T am Glad sony have finally decided to release JB update for the xperia T, but Sadly I must admit that the Xperia T is a rubbish phone 13 megapixel camera and its still no way as good as the sgs3, The screen does not give good dark contrast of colours when watching a movie. I hope this updates fixes the Xperia T each image is only 2mb and for a 13 megapixel camera it seems very limited.

We're still stuck on a buggy ICS release (laggy GUI, USB OTG is broken, mono sound in video recording when used to be stereo on GB). You'd think that Sony would at least FIX the problem. But they've been sittng on this problem for near 10 months as the supposed update to fix the buggy ICS was made 8 months ago. And fixes nothing.

Not that Samsung does any better in regards to what gets updates, but at least they're making STABLE updates...

To all you Samsung fans, I told you so (around a year ago). Samsung only focuses on phones that it released less than a year ago and gives up on smartphones that were released earlier than that. Same thing happened to the Original Galaxy S, now that is what will happen to S2 - it may eventually get JB, but definitely no KLP for that phone. And even S3 users beware, you may get Android 5 (once it is released), but don't expect much more.

Just to remind you: Samsung started Jelly Bean roll-out for SGS3 in September. So it took SONY 4 more moths to update their phone, which I find quite ridiculous.
