Earlier it used to lag... moreYes, think your right about the touch buttons being more responsive, although they do still play up for me but def alot better than what they were with ics. I used the flash tool and flashed the official jb update (did not even need to root etc). I found by adjusting the gpu settings in the developer option, even the standared browser runs much smoother (as well as the phone in general).
I'm very impressed with the keyboard so far and find it super accurate.
A hugh improvement in audio quality through headphones, although, I have hqd to disable xloud because it seems to be louder than before and thus causes some distortion through the loudspeaker.

Does anyone one know what might be the issue. or the servers are down???? I am trying since 2 days to connect to the server for update, but its giving same error. I am from Andhra pradesh, india.
Thanks in advance.
toukir, 01 Jun 2013aftet the jb update, I think the delays were worth it.my SXS is now super fast.stamina mode is... more`Stamina Mode is awesome`...really?...There is no Stamina mode in JB for xperia S. Well, certainly not for the official release anyway. The only option I get is to turn off data traffic when the phon has been left in standby for so long.
Jeanandroidfan, 01 Jun 2013No lies, they promised and delivered an awesome update, if anybody has any issue just repair i... moremy phone is not carrier locked. i have bought 7 sony phones before this. my whole family use sony. sony xperia U got the jelly bean in december. all i'm saying is thay should have gave us one date for update not feb end than march end then april mid then may end and now it is june and the update is not there. the thing that is keeping me away from rooting is warrenty.

max.007, 01 Jun 2013As a loyal fan of sony over 12 years i now learned some new thing.
1.SONY now become microsof... moreNo lies, they promised and delivered an awesome update, if anybody has any issue just repair it via pc companion,the update is awesome and deserves all the delays, very smooth ( while Samsung is delivering even for its galaxy s3 a terrible jellybean update) and sony was able to share the update with most of the countries directly ( unlike all others) stop trolling, if your phone is carrier locked then it is not sony's issue, this is only if you even own a sony! And samsung is worse than apple and microsoft ( they did not update
the galaxy tab 10.1 to 4.1.x at all because it did not sell well!)
Jelly bean came to xperia S in Croatia - via pc companion! Everything seems to be good except video recording. This is an epic fail done by Sony. Now, if you want to record 1080p you'll get 19.5 fps and 11-12 mbs birate! But if you want to record 720p you'll get 30 fps and 12.4 mbs! DOES IT MAKE ANY SENSE WHATSOEVER???
As a loyal fan of sony over 12 years i now learned some new thing.
1.SONY now become microsoft who just want money.
2.sony has poor engineers.
3.Sony knows how to make a last year's flagship look like shit.
i am done now after delays and lies. i am skipping jellybean and will flash KLP by unofficial method when it come out.
i am done with sony,this is my last sony.
Samsung G ace2 is on jelly, Huawai p1 is on jelly, Samsung G music is on jelly for god sake.
sony should hire xda for updates because they can do better in shorter time.
Natsu, 01 Jun 2013What?! I have to go back to the country where I bought it just to update it?!well if u really want to get a taste of JB, i suggest to root your phone, install CWM, and flash Doomlord's prerooted official JB

jaiprakashsingh18, 01 Jun 2013There is no HDR, No Superior Auto Scene,but Phone seems fast and fluid. Earlier it used to lag... moreMaybe camera improvements are one of Sony's finishing touches but we costumers got too excited (more likely mad) because the update is taking too long so unfortunately, Sony failed to include those finishing touches. So next time, let's put a little patience because there is always a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow (just an expression) and it is funny to see comments saying "thank you Sony, the update is worth waiting!" Even though they really didn't waited but spent their time commenting "Shame on you Sony! Where is our jelly bean?!" No offense but I found those kind of a bit "bipolar". So I hope you learned your lessons guys :))
P.s. I have no intention of insulting somebody. I don't want arguments I'm just stating my opinion so I hope this will not have negative comments. Thank you. :-)
There is no HDR, No Superior Auto Scene,but Phone seems fast and fluid. Earlier it used to lag while using dialer(calling),but now it is resolved. RAM available is same as last update. There is still some lag while scrolling through homescreens( may be because of widgets getting updated). But i dont understand why they skipped HDR. Capacitive buttons are more responsive(way better).

My Xperia S is also updated to Jelly Bean and it is really worth the wait, though, little worried about the battery life, not sure if it really drains fast even in stamina mode...
My phone series is from France so for those not getting the update yet, wait a little more...
If you want to manually flash,you can also download the firmware 6.2.b.0.200 which is available on the web, download a flash tool as well and follow simple instructions.
