my S2 which runs on Exynos hasn't got even the 4.1 Jelly Bean update yet even though the update has been announced more than half a year already. I hv checked via OTA as well as Kies, but no update yet since 4.0.4.

This is the part that really pisses me off in Android. My defy had a cortex A9 at 1 GHz with PowerVR SGX530 and 512 MB RAM and it never got ICS (for god sake, all I am asking is ICS, not even JB). But, they kept it at GB saying that GB provided the best experience as per the hardware (lazy motorola guys just didn't want to bother updating the entire defy series).
Today I see devices with Cortex A5 1 GHz, Adreno 200 and 512 MB RAM running JB at almost the same resolution.
It really breaks my heart.

I don't think I'm gonna update, unless the Exynos exploit still works.

I kinda love my one click rooting tbh.

Lol Sony always delayed in updates... especially for their Last year flagship device - the Xperia S.

F@ck you Sony, you suck. My Xperia Acro S will be my last Sony device. Next will probably be an HTC or Samsung. I don't care if they use cheap plastic, at least they use more powerful chipsets, greater customer support, and faster updates.

Goodbye Sony, the Xperia Z/ZL was great, but it's display sucks.
