MittMittins, 11 Feb 2014LOL calm down sony fanboy, Samsung phones have already got 4.3 for months now, samsung will up... moreLook who's talking about Fanboy-ism... Anyway just want to remind you that if you look for a 4.3 firmware for let's say S4mini you'll find out is not released yet... Not to mention that for S3 mini isn't any 4.2 firmware, is still at 4.1:-) like other mfgs (not just sony) has done to some of their mid rangers...
I'm an android Fanboy by the way, not just sony or samsung or htc's all of them has their own pro's and cons.
For tjis discussion would like to add a congrats to sp owners and I hope this update really improve their phones
IM very please to see Sony sp getting the update at last:)
i have been waiting for ages xD
please let us know when it arrive in AUSSI xD thank you ^^
Just to make it more clear, let me show you more interesting numbers.
At first I counted only globally available models and doesn't considered 4G/3G/GSM/CDMA differences(So no Galaxy J and counted all S4 variations as 1 model) so the number was 12/35 vs 13/13.
Now I just counted every single model as a individual model and the number is
23/65 vs 14/18.
EVERY SAMSUNG PHONE HAS A JELLYBEAN 4.3
So true LOL.
So I checked out!
Samsung made 35 Androids after 2013 and 12 (launch date doesn't matter) is now on 4.3 or planned to.
Sony made 13 Androids after 2013 and 9 (launch date doesn't matter) is now on 4.3 and 3 is planned to.
Based on GSMArena Database 2014 Fab, Without considering LTE/3G/CDMAorGSM availability cuz Samsung made too many of them.
I'm stating facts here. Only 2 phones XJ and XE released in the last 17 months by Sony aren't receiving 4.3 and this is a fact, either you like it or not. Now i ask you politely if you might count all phones released in the same period by samsung and then count how many of them are on 4.3 or 4.4...you'll be ashamed by your beloved company :)
MittMittins, 11 Feb 20144.3 ? is that how Sony treats its customers with updates past their times ? Shame on Sony. Hmmm!!?? Does samsung have designer or out of idea??? All of Their phones are look similar from low-end to high-end. Shame on samsung! That's why I bored with my SGS3 Mini!
