Fact: We have been deceived and led into buying a phone under false premises.
Sony have failed to deliver what had been repeatedly advertised.
ICS upgrade was seen by Sony as a strong selling point.
That is why they always announced the Xperia lineup would get ICS.
That was a clever marketing campaign: advertising today's phones as fully upgradable and compatible with the next OS.
Did that work?
Apparently, it did.
Was that true?
What did Sony do when the time fot upgrading arrive?
They simply went back on the given word with a lame excuse and no compensation/alternative plan whatsoever.
Are customers supposed to "forgive and forget" the repeated lying and deceival?
Let's hope they're not just conformist sheep.
No use sony's fanboys and servants keep intoxicating forums and discussion boards everywhere.
The truth is plain to see.
xperiaplaylover, 18 Nov 2012when u fully use this xplay to its full potential i'm sure u will never buy another phone . .... moreHow can i download ics 4 xplay.. Can download direct from phone or what..
I absolutely hate Sony for what they have done to the Xperia PLAY. They said the device would get ice cream sandwich and the sales boosted immensely but some months later they canned the update by saying there were issues. I ACTUALLY TESTED THE ROM and it was fine I could play games like modern combat 3 with no lag although there were the normal frame drops but those you cannot fix unless you modify the game or overclock. Now the problems came with jelly bean which was put on the NEXUS S WHICH IS FROM 2010 and they can't give jelly bean to a better spec'ed android device not to mention it is several months newer. If Sony had done something to make up for this such as upgrading the firmware to a newer jelly bean like the Xperia S but no they have simply abandoned the phone altogether with only 1 android update please reply share this and show your responses.
A proud but angry Xperia PLAY owner.
