Anonym, 10 Sep 2014I wouldn't be stupid enough to rush out and buy another phone from the company that just SCALD... moreWell you could choose a nexus 5 like I did when I ditched them. I had Xperia T and wasn't exactly happy that they started rolling out a buggy 4.3 update while everyone else was getting kitkat. But Xperia T was launched with an old software. Xperia z3 compact has up to date software and all Sony flagships have an 18 month update life.
and this is one advantage with IOS. It will be upgradeable for 4 3 years, (iphone4s can still be upgraded to the ios 8.0) android is only 1 year, and even that, when the phone is updated to the newest android o.s the phone becomes choppy as hell and battery dies quickly.
That is one of many reason apple sometimes lowers android. They updates even 3yr old phone! I was shocked when i found out! I wish, really wish any brand will take this apple like step :- not dropping a 2yr or less phone from latest os updates... Come on brands!!
Ive put cyanogenmod 11 kitkat on my sp and trust me its much better than sonys stock software, had it on for 4 months now and I'm very impressed! I won't get another Sony though after this customer support!
I have an xperia m and the internal memory is so low many things don't sync,like email at least let us be able to move apps to sdcard give us an software update.I think it was my biggest mistake to buy this crappy device.SO DECIDED NOT TO BUY ANYMORE SONY PRODUCTS
northwood, 10 Sep 2014This is one of the reasons why I'm looking on Lumias now. Sony, Samsung, LG they are all same.... moreI went for a Nokia Lumina 900... :-(. Guess, my next phone will be from Apple. Since at least Apple takes care of providing updates for their phones long enough.
Sony Xperia L, SP and M are much better than galaxy s3ies, I Swear !!!!
Take it easy folks, Its just a software update, its not end of the world...jeeweez!
I'm a true Sony fan but i have to say they should've upgraded SP(M and L are ok with 4.3 and 4.2). Nevertheless Sony is undoubtedly the best in upgrading phones right now, after Nexus and Motorola. They had been awful in this respect till last year when they released Xperia Z. I'm a proud owner of Xperia Z, tham came with 4.1.2 and got 4.2.2, 4.3, 4.4.2 and now 4.4.4. The device has been on sale since February last year so it's been 20 months and it still gets updates. Z1, Z1 compact , Z Ultra are all on 4.4.4 (HTC ONE has 4.4.3, S5 has 4.4.2 in most countries) so i guess they are really trying to deliver for Z series. Moreover they upgraded a cheap phone like M to 4.3 (how many phones in this price range get even an update in their lifetime?). From what I know samsung gives 0 updates for their cheap phones. You know sometimes you get a device that won't be given any updates, but Android version shouldn't be what your life is about. Trust me that's a number it's not that when you receive a new update your phone suddenly becomes much better. Not to mention that sometimes new versions come with bugs. A man's life is not determined by android version trust me.

your confused.and reason why your going.elsewhere!!!
This is one of the reasons why I'm looking on Lumias now. Sony, Samsung, LG they are all same. They will give you just one update even for costly hi ends and its over.
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2014the Kitkat update wasn't really groundbreaking, so stop cursing and hating. as for you bud, ... moreXperia SP was pitted against S4 Mini & One Mini at the time of their launches. SP was considered way better than those on the processing part & GPU ( Adreno 320 ) Both were updated to Kitkat almost months ago and SP is left at a buggy 4.3. At least in India, Samsung updated almost all their phones which was around 20K ( S4 Mini, Grand 2, S3 Neo , Note 3 Neo ). SP was priced around 20K since last October.
ojo, 10 Sep 2014Dnt compliant sony....kitkat will be heavy considering these phones specs...check samsung gala... moreAtlst there sony should update apps to sd moving fuction for xperia m .......this is not the right way
As for those who are saying we are furious, we are fyrious over the gact that they delusioned people. Look at motorola. They will even update the moto e. Xperia sp hasn't yet had its update cycle finished. They should've updated it.. And yes kitkat matters.. Much better than jelly bean.. For those who don't care, i bet your device is running kitkat so shut up
