You people here brag about phones from 2012 yet I myself have xperia m which came out august 2013 and Im still at 4.1.2 So what the hell?
2-year-update-warranty is fine enough to Android Smartphones, you know. Look at LG, selling much more smartphones then Sony, they just don't update their older phones (even flagship) just after they make new phones! End of update is always sad thing but I understand. Farewell ma Sola, no KitKat for you.
P.S what about TX and neo L?
And my Xperia SP to get 4.3 at December, 2013, it is February, 2014 and I did not got. =|

By the time xperia T etc get the 4.3update the 18month support window will be up! Not much chance of 4.4 update as Sony will have xperia Z, ZR, ZL, Z1 and sirious to focus on - and xperia SP and whatever other new phones they are likely to release! Time to turn to cynagen!

Amazing that some still think they deserve upgrades of 2011 SE Xperia phones, it was bad enough that they got ICS, just remember how fast they were with Gingerbread and then... The updates ruined those phones.

Apple phones are supported. An iPhone is always well regarded (and keeps good value) because they are treated like the premium product they are.
Apple doesn't need to "make believe" their products are premium. Can you tell the same of the "make believe" company in which their flagship ends up turning "a mid-ranger"?

... moreWhat you lieing yourself about is that Apple has a unique platform which it creates and develops for so it's normal they keep their models all in line.
If you were an Apple user with an older device, you would be complaining about updates slowing down your device gradually, they all say the same thing. Being on forums friends, etc.. At one point, it's useless to get something updated.
And an Apple smartphone is always 650$+ minimum contract free so it's not comparable to all Sony's low/mid rangers, upper mid (like S).

I'm glad that my xperia TX still under investigation for kit kat. Bad news for the other model.
Errrr xperia sp got kitkat because of 2013 phone not because of the hardware?? Not fair

And all smartphones have to get obsolete some day (some earlier than later).
Good riddance for Sony. No need to waste ressources on older hardware, people keeping their phones 18+ months can't be too picky and don't really need the latest tech anyway.

You need to start understanding the difference between a crap product and a supposed premium product. Crap is dumped, supposed premium must be supported.

it not because sony dosent want to give update its because they cant jusy afford to give updates
All xperia phone from 2012 so not need to be upgraded, its a waste of money. If you want new technology, buy a new phone. Getting kit kat on thos old phones will just cause complications. Why touch something when it is working perfectly fine

so you cant compare CM android to a official oem version. cm is just a buggy not optimised version. if such a update is given to all people over the world sony would die the bext day coz of customer getting tired of over 9000000 bugs
