I have just loaded the Jelly Bean ROM onto my Xperia V's (3) all on different networks. Rougly the same LTE speed from the same location. Google now works well. UI slightly different, but not a huge leap from ICS.

Happy with it.

Statistics from Norways biggest carrier shows that Xperia V is the 5th most sold phone in January 2013. They also said that Sony is the brand with highest growth compared to earlier sales figures.

Bezelbub Lumia 920 is down on on 9th place, and thats NOT due to supply shortages, this carrier has exclusive deals with Nokia and is the only carrier to sell Lumia 920 with "guaranteed" LTE enabled firmware, and get all the exclusive 920s they need. All colors been in stock the whole time. Anyway, no surprise that 920 cannot compete with Xperia V.

Its best to stay away from thjose instore warranty stores, there are good reasons why its cheaper, could end up far more expensive and updates seem to never come for samsungs bought in those stores. For example, Note 2 from Samsung Philipines was among the first to get Android 4.1.2 and 2 other updates after that to fix the exynos vulnerability and other stability and performance issues, those who bought instore warranty units still didnt get 4.1.2 and much less the other two updates. Bad deals then. i will be happy to pay 4000 more to get a phone from Sony Ph. If i cant afford that then i probably cant afford an Xperia V anyway.

Competition is high, and if Sony-India does not "release" (make available for buying), it does not go up for sale anywhere.
