Sad, I feel cheated, all of my friends and colleagues are having KitKat on their basic models... and I am stuck at JB... Sony, this only leading to trashing your phones and buying phones such as Moto G, Nexus, etc which give a pure joy of android... very SAD

all i want from sony is to give xperia m dual the app2sd support, because its internal memory is very low, i dont want kitkat, 4.3 is running excellent in my phone, and multimedia softwares(walkman,album,movies, and this is the reason i bought xperia, richest multimedia experience in any phnoe) get updated every month with new features.
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2014the Kitkat update wasn't really groundbreaking, so stop cursing and hating. as for you bud, ... moremy xperia m dual internal memory is very low, all i want from sony is to release a firmware that can support app2sd,i dont want kitkat, because 4.3 is running smoothly in my phone, I know sony is far better than samsung in terms of hardware quality and durability, and update too.
y I curse u... Your profits..... Your top lines will go down... I never buying a Sony again...I was really looking forward to the smartband talk but hell with it now
Mark my words u think d sp is unworthy for the update...just one major update through the entire course
...let's c how u pull it off with your not so upgraded z3
Never a Sony again n I will post this everywhere
bavarezul13, 10 Sep 2014I'm a true Sony fan but i have to say they should've upgraded SP(M and L are ok with 4.3 and 4... moreTrue...Some peoples are just dont know how to use android phone. Peoples， not every new version of OS is better than the old one please..
superjebb, 10 Sep 2014Ive put cyanogenmod 11 kitkat on my sp and trust me its much better than sonys stock software,... moreBought a lumia 710 in 2012 and two months later windows phone is launched and my device was denied, bought xperia sp two months ago and now am denied to kikkat, what the hell? Sony uve disappointed me, might as well go back to windows phone, or even try apple this time around.
This is why it is safer to get Z series phones. Even phones aged about 20 month from Sony (Xperia Z & ZL) still gets the latest update.
james79, 10 Sep 2014Well you could choose a nexus 5 like I did when I ditched them. I had Xperia T and wasn't exac... moreI could and sort of have, since I have a LG Optimus G (which is pretty much a better Nexus 4, it even runs the same bootloader without modification).
Because of this close similarities I enjoy a pretty stable CM support (in all senses), a Nexus 4-like experience but with a better camera, 32GB of internal storage and hard keys at the bottom.
And I thought Sony cared about its customers. This is a really bad move . Especially when the Sony skin is so light.
Samsung has a heavy TouchWiz UI which is loaded with features so such a thing can be expected from Samsung ( not justifying for Samsung).
Sony's UI is quite close to stock Android, so why would they do this ?
