Vianney, 25 Jul 2013Did you ever use a Sony phone? Yes Sony S
WhiskeyHotel99, 25 Jul 2013Sony is crap phones Did you ever use a Sony phone?
I hope Sony will bring the update to Xperia L especially Xperia L's in southeast asia
P.S I use an Xperia L
no.BoUndaries, 25 Jul 2013Actually, the Galaxy SIII is one of the SmartPhones with the highest number of IMPORTANT updat... moreHaha my Xperia P had Android 2.3 Gb late 4.0.1 late 4.0.2 late 4.1.2 so my Xperia P had more updates
Ah I think This is a reason why my XT doesn't get 4.2 right now! Love you Sony and it's okay with me to stay with 4.1 cuz I really enjoy your UI!
This is just sad for many users of Sne Xperia S Series specially. But this is not Googles Fault, they just release the 4.3 and source the problem isn't totally from Sony either.
Its from the "carriers" whatever they name is and wherever they are placed around the globe. Like ATT Loves delays launch their updates many many weeks.
So the one to be blamed here is the carriers and this fragmentation in Android.
Why did gsmarena didn't mention anything about the very important line in the source?
-"We’re also looking at uplifting some of our other devices running 4.1 direct to 4.3 – we’ll share more info / deets / timings when we can, so be sure to follow @SonyMobileNews for all the latest."
Anyway that white xperia z really looks awesome.
They have not mentioned when will they start seeding the 4.3 for Xperia Z...
Right now my Xperia Z is on 4.2.2 and its working fine...
Jeanandroidfan, 25 Jul 2013that's why galaxy s3 jellybean till now is not available in a lot of regions and is full of bu... moreSorry to destroy your day but that is not Samsung's fault! It is the fault of your favourite carrier which do not provide it! Sorry! And NO, it is not ”full of bugs”, it is a real improvement and it works beautiful! Did you own an SIII and try it for months? I do not think so! So, to make the things clear for you, here are two videos about that update: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6aM7kQ7sCRE and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7SEBepku-4 ! Now shut up if you do not know what are you talking about!

iron-man, 25 Jul 2013exactly what is expected from an sgs3 user...Actually, the Galaxy SIII is one of the SmartPhones with the highest number of IMPORTANT updates (not only bug fixes)! Updates: from 4.0.4 to 4.1.1, from 4.1.1 to 4.1.2 (yeah, for Android in general it was not something big but with this update Samsung provided the Premium Suite which contained features from Note II and battery and performance improvements, so also a big update) and now GSIII users are waiting for 4.2.2 update (which is already leaked on the web) to become official, just like YOU, Xperia Tablet Z and Zperia ZR etc. users but the SIII is last year flagship, not from this year! Also Samsung confirmed to provide update for SIII until atleast Android is at version 5.0! So this is what you should expect FOR a GSIII user and not to expect for a Sony user :P!!!
Good news from Sony, hope Sony don't disappointing ppl again in OS update again
Krs95, 25 Jul 2013Update will start in 2014 and end in may be 2016 ....lolBetter than zero updates from HTC.
Sunny, 25 Jul 2013Oh SONY are at it again!!! Trying to fool us all... Have had it with sony. An Ex Xperia S userLol. At least better than HTC and LG. They simply abandon phones after 1 year.
JM, 25 Jul 2013Shame on you Samsung, I am a shame Note 2 owner who is still using 4.1.2. How dare I buy Note ... moreIf you check on the older news in GSMarena, Samsung did announced that it is planning to skip Note II 4.2 updates which Note II will be straightly updated to 4.3 from 4.1
james79, 25 Jul 2013What phone are you using now jean? Im using xperia T now. Do you think it will get 4.3 update?I actually own now an Xperia S and an Xperia Z, and yeah there's still a lot of hope for xperia t as they are still testing and examinating 2012 devices with android 4.3 and 4.2 builds
Hi guy.for those of u who worry about xperia(2012) update.well, there aren't any confirm about 2012 xperia line not getting update or anything.beside, it 's sony and also, gsmarena stated that they still under examination.they make us believe from time to time.and for the year 2011,they had a problem due to sony buying ericsson.and this is my personal curiosty. for all those people who are trolling here.why u troll here anyway.
