Anonymous, 23 Dec 2013They aren't that great considering how long ago HTC and Samsung released their 4.3 updates. Ad... moreSamsung and HTC's touchqiz and sense UI are put on top of android where as Sony's xperia UI is stitched into android, so that its lag free and hene it is also time consuming plus they updated so many phones!
Samsung and HTC can't even think of updating that many phones! SOny gives service to all its phones!
Here is the no of phones of each brand that are running atleast 4.3 or higher by end of the year:
Samsung - 4
HTC - 3
SOny - 10
Motorola - all
Other OEM/brands - none
I chose LG Optimus G over Xperia Z. I regret my decision. My last phone from LG. I dont even need their nexus.
