I just updated my sony xperia j to android 4.1.2 today. the touch sensitivity has improved a lot. the screen is a lot smooth too.. crashing of apps has decreased. and the pinch zoom doesnt work when you are in home screen. the best thing I liked is the gestures while typing.

i updated my xperia j yesterday, the irritating lag has been reduced to great extend, still its present but great relief though. There is change in the notification bar and little changes here and there, no other significant change is given.

Tell me, please, what changes in the notification bar?

What about the Sony Xperia S? That's why Sony remains behind the competition because they lack technological innovation and care for their customers. If my Xperia S doesn't get any updates I will renounce Sony as a brand. A lot of my colleagues and friends ask my opinion about phones and have always been supportive of Sony since I have their phone.

You can even find FTFs and system dumps of it on XDA. Go there if you really need it.

But still, after I updated it to ICS, this pretty Xperia animated wallpaper that flows when you swipe between homescreens got totally static on ICS. And my friend's Xperia S after its ICS update kept the animated wallpaper but with so much lag that I was barely usable. Another update was issued later on, and the animation was brought back, but come on! It's an animated wallpaper, for crying out loud! Sony, you really suck at software development (get a Vaio, they said, it will come with plenty of useful software, they said!).

JB would run just fine on the 2012 midrangers with proper optimizations (I should know, there are great JB roms for our 2011 Xperias), it's just sony being lazy and not optimizing their so-called "NXT UX" crap.

Also, The X10 as one of the best? Come on! the thing released with a painfully outdated OS (1.6) and SE didn't bother to upgrade it to 2.1 till months later, and even then, the thing was still outdated. Yes, it got 2.3 a year after launch, but it runs as smooth as sandpaper. Not to mention it's flaky build quality.

Don't take me wrong, I do own an Xperia Mini Pro, but Sony just can't get their sht together. Have you seen how custom ICS roms (such as CM9) run on the original Galaxy S? And how terrible they are on the X10? That speaks volumes, doesn't it?

Talk about future-proofing.
