> In reply to batery? @ 2015-02-03 11:40 from rAQR - click to readI am not aware of any solution to the issue as such. One thing I have noticed is that sometimes, while using the phone for something, the battery percentage suddenly stops falling and remains stuck at that level for a while. This normally happens when the battery is above 40%, and after that the battery suddenly drains (especially during standby) when the level goes below 40%. Hence I just put the phone to charge once the battery touches 10-15% and not wait for it to go down to 4% or so.

> In reply to batery? @ 2015-02-02 18:23 from rAQI - click to readThat is one bug which even I have faced on the .205 firmware. Once the battery was 11% and a few seconds later it became 4% and just after that the phone got discharged. I have faced this issue several times and I noticed it happens only when the battery has fallen below 40%.

Thanks sony
It is relevant to say that the new music app won't stop even while playing games or any intense activities. Beat light stopped but that was not working before too.only when u open music it would flicker,when display is off it stops flickering.
To see it flicker why don't you download the app from playstore.

The light beat effects were the iconic feature of Xperia SP and after the new update for Walkman it just stopped working? very disappointing to see that first, they abandoned the kitkat and the lollipop version of android to this handset and now THIS? >:/....FIX it Sony!!!! ASAP

Ignoring all the BAD reviews Finally I had taken the decision to experience XSP personally...So 2 days back I bought this phone in RED for about 150 USD, It is Running on 4.1.2 with firmware 12.0.A.2.254,so far My experience is Good.
DESIGN,DISPLAY,SOUND,PERFORMANCE,BATTERY is Good.and no comments on LED STRIP....it looks always awesome..:)
Camera is good in daylight but average in low light( in 150 USD I think it would be OK)
I have encountered only one problem that was "THE PHONE RESTARTS WHILE DOING ANTUTU BENCHMARK"
but this problem was occurred with ANTUTU 4 & 5... antutu 3 ran without any problem...then I installed antutu 4 again and "COSTUME BENCHMARK & UNCHECK CPU" antutu 4 completed without restarting it....I don't know whats the problem but i think it is software issue not hardware here anyone knows the reason please tell me.
OTHER then that every thing id fine gaming,call quality sound everything is AWESOME...
I have also got the notification of NEW SYSTEM UPDATE (12.1.A.1.205)...Its size is abiout 406 MB SO guys please guide me should I go for it or keep stay on current firmware...thanks

This was my last phone from Sony....like many said before the poor update ruined the whole experience....I think Sony just gave up on mid range devices...the m2 is also a very rubbish phone, worse than sp....for those who may be interested, I suggested look somewhere else...after this I had motor get, miles better than the sp, and now an Alcatel one touch idol x+, much better than this Sony....
