AnonD-137930, 04 Feb 2014Why SONY doesn't update Xperia S to KitKat I understand why Sony aren't updating to 4.3 becaus... moreXperia S died a fast death because Qualcomm (the manufacturer of it's SoC) ended up discontinuing all support for future Android versions.
For once it wasn't actually Sony's fault, although I obviously understand your outrage (for all purposes it was Sony that sold you a flagship phone with no support).
What I really know - I will not buy any more Sony cameras for not giving any updates.
Phone from Sony? You gotta be kiddin me... Never.
this sucks man how can they do for the HS released just 2 years back this is crazy

Hey Sony, while you "investigate" head over to cyanogenmod.org and download the latest nightly. Full blown Android 4.2.2 (Kitkat) working just fine.
I thought Nokia was bad for ending Symbian support, but these Sony phones are just 2 years old!
the sad thing is its only 2years old and yet their are not giving a damn about their phone. how poor SUNY phones are.
This is really sad news. Xperia S was released the same year as S3 and yet it's stuck on 4.1 while S3 is upgradable to 4.3 and is planned to be upgraded to KitKat. Hope this won't happen on Xperia Z and up models.
Why SONY doesn't update Xperia S to KitKat I understand why Sony aren't updating to 4.3 because the battery will last shorter than 4.1.2 but KitKat will work they say that KitKat will work on any device with minimum 512mb RAM and Xperia S has 686mb RAM plus Xperia S is the first SONY Xperia device a Flagship of the firs half of 2012 and has similar processor with Xperia T.
Speaking of poor support.
Next there's a Sony fanboy say something negative about Samsung's support, they should better have this in mind.
Well atleast there is hope for xperia M, L, C and SP apart from Z/Zxx series. Sammy shd declare too asap
