Anonymous, 26 Aug 2016Xperia SP ,BEST Build Quality EVER ?????????????????Agreed - strong metal frame all around it and practical matte plastic back that doesn't scratch or fingerprint. Mine still working well and looking good after three years.
AnonD-431169, 27 Aug 2016The first thing I did moving to Sony was installing Google Keyboard! Using Sony's keyboard is... moreI did that with my Acro S in jelly bean, but the Sony keyboard in my Z3C in both Kitkat and Marshmallows had been awesome
i have a xperia z3 still 6.0 and a xperia sp 4.3, it will be happy to find out that i have an update for it :)
The first thing I did moving to Sony was installing Google Keyboard!
Using Sony's keyboard is like Kim Kardashian - pretty to some, but fundamentally fucked up...
it's not possible to update any SD800 / SD801 phone to Nugat , unless Sony , Lg , Samsung , etc break some rules made by Qualcomm and Google . but they would risk getting sued from them .
just forget official Nugat for Z3 , S5 , Nexus 5 , etc ...
I still have the phone on 4.1 and it is good enough for everything browsing watching videos playing games.The most annoying thing is only that the keyboard get killed sometime when browsing meaning it doesn't come up you have to exit chrome and start again to come up otherwise it works just fine.DON'T JUST BUY THINGS YOU DON'T NEED AND WAIST MONEY.PEOPLE THAT BUY NEW PHONES EVERY YEAR ARE STUPID
Forget nougat, sony didnt even update it to lolipop, not even kitkat.
It is still running on jellybean 4.3.
Such a capable hardware that it looked like then, I hoped all days that sony sp will be given kitkat update ateast.
Learned a lesson then, never buy sony for updates.
Within six months it looked old, because of only update from 4.2 to 4.3 ...i dont remember correctly.. Maybr it was from4.1 to 4.3

Not supporting OpenGL ES 3.1 lack of support is Qualcomm's fault for not releasing drivers. This is again, planned obsolesce, this time from Qualcomm.
Both are still valid for any previous version, 4.4, 5.0 and 6.0, as these state being mandatory only support for OpenGL ES 2.0 and 1.0.
