Got some news from GSM arena, it seems that due to a big loss on sony's earning they decided to re-evaluate their strategy on the midrange market, this could be the reason why sony canceled the kitkat update on xpeira SP and other midrange phone as they will be focusing on the high end market.

here's the link

Memorize this type of attitude, it will help you in recognize them the future and save you a lot of nerves and time. Just so we're all in understanding , this isn't a reply to XperiaSp™, this is a post for all of you out there, to see that there are always mindless fanboys or perhaps company employees undermining customers solidarity.

Here is a timeline of corespondance between XperiaSp™ and myself. If you don't believe the pics, check for yourselves, the posts begin just 3-4 pages behind.

Don't trust fanboys and, more importantly, don't spend your money on cheating companies that openly make false claims for financial gains. If you do, they will only get worse and others will follow then when they see there are no punishment for such behavior. There need to be consequences. DO NOT BUY SONY.

SP has bad camera, I know it, every owner knows it and every single review of the phone confirmes it. Having strong GPU or 4G LTE doesnt replace that.

> In reply to Yelsy @ 2014-09-12 18:09 from pW4B - click to readnow i can't stand your whining and I'm trying to be as kind as possible when responding to others, but with your tone you sounded like you're picking a fight with me and thats fine if you want a fight bring it on cry baby.

FYI. I never change my stance or tune, I maintained my stance on everything that i replied to you. and for your information 'crybaby', I may be a sony fanboy but when they do something not good, i always let others know, for example when sony release the intial 4.3 update which is full of bugs, i commented here that SP is a good phone but the update made the phone slow,unresponsive etc. (if you have been here for a long time you would have seen my comment from 4 months ago and more), at some point i even recommended xperia ZR and moto G. I also provide support to others, answer questions of people asking on this site, for xperia SP, L and C (sSs™). I admit sony has gave me a lot of problems but I don't cry like you, that's our difference. and base on your userID, i can say you're new here, so stop acting like a basher and just accept the fact like a real man.

I’m damn sure that I will never buy any Sony product and will never recommend it to my friends/colleagues. Was using Neo V and made a big mistake by upgrading to this phone. Well Chinese phone makers are far better than Sony in all aspects (value and promise)
As promised Sony has not provided the kitkat update and has withdrawn the plans to do so.
Few of the problems that I have noticed.
• Touch screen struggles to recognize touch when phone’s charging
• So called walkman does not play WMA media , shows up all the audio files in a single page (no folder wise selection , I got a 32GB card installed)
• Sometimes the phone thinks that earphones are still connected and the earphone icon does not appear in the status bar
• Camera fails to save the previous shooting mode (reverts to stupid superior mode though the earlier selection was manual)
• Too many bloat ware and unnecessary RAM consumption
• Only 839 MB of RAM available for usage
• Ringtone assigned to a contact defaults back after few days (Just don’t know why)
• New 3.5mm jack standard, unable to use few of my old earphones
• And finally now no Kitkat update , Please don’t fool customers by making fake promises

I know this dont help, but clears things at least and keeps you from looking fot a solution that doesnt exist.
