This is a detailed review of the 4.3 update but before that I would recommend you to repair your xsp with the sony pc companion, it will eradicate the sluggishness of your phone.
wifi range issue fixed
static black screen problem while unlocking is fixed
Android 4.3 features
overall UI smoothness increased a lot
Matured User Interface
Better Walkman app and Camera app with improved user experience
Only con which affects user experience i found is during installing or uninstalling an app the system becomes unresponsive and does not react to touches immediately
LED light does not blink properly in walkman app
After locking the screen if you press the lock button immediately to unlock, it does not respond
Screen does not go to sleep when connected to a charger if you manually unlock it
Benchmark scores are improved but that does not tell the whole story. The system smoothness is just awesome.
Gaming performance same as before, that means very good
I did not experienced any call quality changes either.

mits999, 19 Feb 2014Led does not beat? Which means there is no option in settings regarding the led blink in music... moreunfortunately there is no setting to fix the illuminating lights when playing music thru walkman. this is a common problem after the update, the light would not illuminate to diff color or doesn't change even when the music cover changes it's color in the screen and also it is just plain steady light it doesn't blink. I had this problem until i found the solution.
you just need to go back to pc companion and choose repair, after repair the LED light works properly now and it illuminates to the corresponding color of the music cover. the only problem remains is that the phone still lags/hangs a lot of time.
how to switch off the notification light while charging?? plz reply
Not happy, within 6 weeks of purchasing, it has been in twice for repair. Second time within 3 days of getting it back from repair. Both times, same issue, top of screen stops responding.
