I am never gonna buy Sony again. Suffering with the Xperia J now. Time to move to Apple.
LOL!! All WP8 phones( from premium to mid and budget level are getting updates and upgrades!. thanks MS
This is really great problem between the "xperia-customer" relationship.. To think once you buy xperia phones, you would expect to use it for 3-5 years, of course with its regular OS update but with this news you are going to change your phone yearly! ><
Pathetic operations by SONY in releasing updates :
1. Firstly, they are slow in releasing upgrades.
2. They end support for phones with just 2 updates.
Their falsifying market strategy is to release a phone with version 1, when the current market version must be 2.1. Then they later update the version to 2( market version then reaches 3). This goes on for exactly "one" more version or "two" in case the phone is a high end.
I am no more buying a Sony ! You just lost a customer Sony.
Sony, this shows how competitive your customer management / technical skills are at par with the competition.
This is the department where Nexus and Apple's Service comes in handy. . .
I'm using xperia j, I dont want upgrade I want bug fixes! I really disappointed with my device. It's just a problematic phone. I will switch back to Nokia at least they're providing longer term support for their low end devices. Screw you Sony for being a fan of yours for more than eight year. My first android smart phone distro really gives me a very bad experience.
My Arc s is running kitkat with zero force closes and errors, and it's really fast too.
And arc s is a 2011 phone, not 2012
Why do 3rd party developers like Cynagenmod can make numerous updates while the own manufacturers cans? Do give us this excuses you lazy scums.
atleast sony did update ur phone to some extent.. b haopy with tht folks.. look at lg! i hav optimus 3d max. one of the 2012 lg optimus flagship with galaxy s2 like hardware! still its on gingerbread.. lg didnt bother to update it to ics so let alone jellybean! lg is the worst offender of customer support!
Yeahh!! With latest ioS Not more advance than ICS.. Lolz.. Dude where have you been?
Android has too much chipsets and hardware fragmentation that supporting OS updates take too much resources for the manufacturer. RIP Xperia

So don't blame Apple selling their devices slightly higher price.
Sony slowly resembles to Sammy. Releasing bunch of devices with limited or no update after 1 or 2 years.
This is really bad!
