Android leaks like a sieve and is compromising proper security protocols to protect personal information. If you have an Android device you have to accept the fact your personal information will never be secure and more than likely traded to others for "marketing" purposes. You guys consider yourselves to have an element of intelligence yet you walk around with your pants down all day with your Android mobile. So why wont Google fix this. Well why should they when you guys provide free information all day every day.
I don't get the fuss over 4.3 update it has literally no major upgrade over 4.2.2 .
Even the under the hood changes like
Trim- Already available through apps like fstrim
Open gl 2 support - Only useful if you are a hard core gamer then too only a handful of games support it as of now.
Multi user restriction - Not used at all unless you have more than one user account setup which is mostly the cases for tabs.
can we please focus in whats important here?
we are all android users...
it doesn't matter if you use samsung, htc, or sony, its still android, ind the end most of us will use CM so its still android, and this is great cause more apps developed specially for 4.3 will come out...
its not like we use some other pathetically closed system that sends all our private information to the better buyer
Sony Argentina already said that it was q mistake that Sony xperia L will only get The 4.2 update iam an xperia L user dying for more info

Anonymous, 18 Oct 2013Cheap? U call better viewing angles, outdoor clarity, removable battery, sd card, touchwiz wit... moreSeriously, Smart Pause? You do not admit that its a ridiculous useless feature? Many reviewers and users pointed out that its not very desirable to have your video go on pause every time you look away, which we do a lot more often than we think we do.
If this feature is not worthless both in usefulness and monetary value then what is it? Is it worth money to you? And yes i have tried this "feature", i have used S4 and it was so good to go back to Xperia afterwards, makes one appreciate the cleanliness and efficiency even more.
I will consider Samsung again when they clean up their ui bloat, makes all S-apps uninstallable and gets rid of the physical home button and replaces the outdated menu button with appswitcher, and preferable also lose that cheap exterior look.
They can take their time, most important is that it's well tested and debugged. Unlike my HTC before, yeah it was early in getting the new android version but it barely worked, it was terrible, and like that was not enough that model never received any updates from HTC ever again! The early update almost bricked the phone and no bug fixes were ever made.
