after updation battery drain so quickly else everything is fine. charging time not improved very much. a little difference has been shown. I update my xperia sp through OTA.
BOSS, 16 Jun 2014my sony xperia sp is update as 12.1.A.1.205 latest version but-viber is not working for call o... moresometimes viber gets unavailable temporarily. May be due to large number of users. But comes back again with its service. I don't know how come so many .205 XSP users are facing this problem. The operation of viber needs internet but has nothing to do with either wifi or packet data provided that your wifi signal is strong and ISP's service is good enough.
Hikaru, 16 Jun 2014after you update your xperia sp to .205, does the light sensor works now? I found no difference than before. Thanks to lux lite for auto brightness control.
bojank9, 17 Jun 2014can the lucky one(that got update) tell me about wi-fi problems? does range still suck and is ... moreBojank9,
I think wifi is even more better than in .201 build version and drop issue is also very very minimum. Except camera disappointment everything else is so good with XSP now. RAM too good. I get 325+ with disabling just google+ and installing viber, 360 security and lux lite which regularly consumes RAM.
Believe me, due to wifi issue I was about to exchange this phone for XZ but no need now. Why to expend more when the problem in XSP is already solved with the update? haha
P.S. By the way you too are lucky to get update if you have checked your phone with pc companion. Which country are you from? I'm from Nepal.
can the lucky one(that got update) tell me about wi-fi problems? does range still suck and is it dropping? i heard they fixed lag problems and other stuff but noone talked about wi-fi. xD
Prasanth, 16 Jun 2014Its features are Good. Its old model and wont get future OS update. So, wait for Xperia T3. T3... moreI'm skeptical about those Cortex A7 cores... when you look at the specs you are fooled into thinking that quadcore surely is more powerful than the dualcore in Xperia SP, but in reality (CPU wise) they shouldn't be that far apart and GPU wise the SP may have some serious extra punch.
It's the lack of updates in the foreseeable future that really brings down this phone.

Hey folks, I'm just wondering, Is 1GB of Ram enough for the phone to stay smooth and play some bigs game? , does the SP lags when wifi is turned on and so?
avinashrn, 16 Jun 2014Is it best to update through mobile... Please reply....yes it's better to update thru mobile because it is faster, updates using pc companion takes time to finish.

Updated to new firmware really good update the only problem I found the battery drains very fast hard to stay a day with one time charge except this I think it's worth to update.
kihu, 16 Jun 2014what does the "adapt to lighting conditon" do?it basically uses the light sensors to automatically adjust the brightness of your phone, for instance, if you go to a dark room the screen will automatically reduce it's brightness so it won't hurt your eyes, and if you move to a bright location the screen will automatically increase the brightness so you can clearly see the screen. however you might not notice this because the feature only automatically adjust one step up or one step down, so the change is hardly noticeable.
