It is the most slowest phone ever among all the FLagship phones in the last 1 - 2 years.
Upgrade it to ICS, use/customize it for 10 - 15 days and experience its great lag and slowness!
Samsung upgraded its S2 (2011) to JB but Sony bluntly said no and is adamant not to optimize its software so that phone runs smoothly!
I got HTC One, so good Project Butter FTW!
