This really hurts me say this, but being a seasoned Sony Ericsson user for the last 10 years, this has got to have been the worst phone I have ever owned, even worse than the K850i which I had trouble with a few years back (but music player was great though) and they gave us the truly fab W995, which although not a smartphone (and why I parted with it) gave me absolutely no trouble at all and was a killer music phone with sensational sound.
The thing that really hurts is that I really wanted to like the S as it had jaw-dropping specs and was fast when it worked.
But it has been as unreliable as sin as the phone has constantly been 'freezing' for what just started as for a few minutes started turning into a few hours. I have persevered with it but felt that enough was enough. I have now switched to the Xperia Z and all I can say up to now is so far so good.
Sony had true potential with the S, but was just a handover from the Sony Ericsson days.
Come one now, you can do better than this and the Z proves it.
Sony confirms Android 4.3 for Xperia Z series and Xperia SP
in ANDROID, FIRMWARE, SONY TABLET, XPERIA SP, XPERIA Z AND XPERIA ZL, XPERIA Z ULTRA, XPERIA ZR
JB XperiaWow, Sony is quick off the mark to officially confirm a number of Xperia devices that will be getting Android 4.3. This includes the Sony Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, Xperia Z Ultra, Xperia Tablet Z and the Xperia SP.
In an interesting twist, Sony has also confirmed that they will be upgrading some handsets directly from Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to Android 4.3. We don’t have any details on which handsets they will be, but it’s great news nonetheless.

Change the network connection from WCDMA(preferred) to GSM only and you will only have 2g connection.
It's not smooth when viewing the menus, web browser, etc when the phone is in landscape.
Fine in portrait but very choppy in landscape.

I have done all settings but never had data connection on 2g. In india no widespread 3g. So please sony do something to rectify the connection on 2g. I have wasted 27000 rupees on the lazy and not responding company .
I do not understand why the jellybean update is choppy especially when scrolling through the pictures under albums. I thought project butter applied to all jb handsets. Does not seem to be the case here :(

Is there any news about the new update regarding to the bugs that was reported like the message when battery low and full hd recording? Sony said they will start rolling that on july 8 onwards but until now there's no update. Still waiting for a bug fixing update.
