Read your incredibly informative review of the update. Somehow I think you have the necessary expertise to guide me out of my below dilemma.
I cannot decide between Xperia SP and Lumia 920. The majors cons of SP which are deterring me from the device are :
1. The camera : Picture quality is way below Sony standard with bad low resolution pics and noisy pics. Low light pics are getting huge negative reviews. The screen is also not doing justice to the phone with being washed out display and bad viewing angles.
2. video quality does not measure up either.
3. Seriously bad wi-if range. My wi-fi range would be about 10 to 15 feet with a wall in between at times.
4. Less ppi compared to 920.
Plus when you are paying Rs 23k I don't plan to change the handset in at least 2 years if not 3 years. So I need to be at calm that my software will receive regular updates. What are the chances of XSP getting Android 5 after Kit-Kat. And I have to keep the resale value in mind when I get my next phone. Nokia enjoys certain respect while coming to resale. What are your opinions on that ?
There are things going for XSP too. Most important of which to me is the ADRENO 320 GPU. The battery is also marginally better in XSP and has a TV out too (does that mean with a HDMI cable attached to the TV I can play watch the games in the big screen ?).
I hope you get the quandary. Need your valued advice urgently.
