AnonD-31388, 10 Jun 2014frnds, all are facing issues and trying make our handset worth for what we paid. believe me my... moreI read many reviews and learned that if you Upgrade the phone software to 4.3 you will get lots of lag, bugs etc...therefore i havent yet upgraded my software yet and my SP runs very well even after installing heavy games like Asphalt 8. One of my freinds have this phone too and he didnt know about the bugs and slowdowns on 4.3 and he decided to upgrade to 4.3 and as everyone said hes SP slowed down heavily and is a real bummer for him. So my advice to anyone buying this phone is not to upgrade its software to 4.3 . If you did then try installing a custom roms like the CyanogenMOD or flashing the phones original rom. Dont do this if you dont understand how to (You might brick your phone). Since i am still on 4.1 i am very satisfied with the phone and i think its a very good phone for its price.
ferdinan, 10 Jun 2014Which indonesia must i buy? Xperia sp, lenovo vibe x, xperia m2, or LG G2 Mini, maybe any othe... moreHey man i have a SP i bought about a month ago and its pretty good. I installed heavy games like asphalt 8 and it runs the game pretty smooth with a few minor lags here and there(barely noticeable). The only phone i considered buying other than this phone was the much cheaper Motorola G which got awesome reviews from everywhere and its a really good phone for its price. The only downside of Moto g is its lack of external storage.(No sd card slot) This is the only reason not to consider the moto g. other than that i think the SP still can hold its own when it comes to everyday tasks. The only bummer about the SP is its Dual core Processor. Although theres a high end architecture in the CPU's design its still a dual core and you will see minor lags here and there. The Sp comes with all the Bells and whistles of many top of the line phones. If you have the budget for a Xperia SP then dont buy the xperia M(If your talking about M2 it is better than the Sp) If you dont have the budget to buy the Sp then i suggest looking at the Xperia L, its better than the Xperia M but it cant compete with the SP. I dont really know about the other phones like lenovo. Lastly the LED strip of Xperia SP is really unique and adds a lot more value to the phone.
frnds, all are facing issues and trying make our handset worth for what we paid. believe me my wife have Lenovo s820 and some times feel that that phone is better than sp. with all apps which we disable, that ph is having 300+ ram free with all apps running. and more memory more fast phone.
So please wait till next update or just be happy or sell out the phone,
AnonD-235351, 09 Jun 2014honey, if those apps are shit and causing lags, so WHY there is no lag with them on 4.1.2.
i... moreDear Mono,
I appreciate your last review. Yes, I accept that there are lots of lags in 4.3 and still it persists. But due to a bit better wifi range I have to stick with it. Neither I can change the phone frequently nor I can go back to 4.1 to regain butter smooth performance because of wifi issue. I just found a way to keep my RAM free when I don't use certain apps all the time. For eg. when i learned that to play youtube I need google play services, I enabled it. As you know disabling means not removing. We can enable again when required.
Despite the fact that 4.3 is full of lags and the software creation is not upto mark, 4.1 also have lags like no screen touch response when laid flat on surface, unlock screen issue, crashing walkman etc. We ourselves are forced to find a way for android/ sony's mistake. We paid for the services which we cannot use fully and now whom should we blame?
We have just an option left which is to wait and watch for all the bug fixing update to be released.
Which indonesia must i buy? Xperia sp, lenovo vibe x, xperia m2, or LG G2 Mini, maybe any other recomendation? :(
M2 is a new release, LG G2 and Lenovo vibe x are not too long release date :(I want buy xperia sp but it has oldest release that than others :'( pliss help me :(
*sorry if my grammar so bad*
honey, if those apps are shit and causing lags, so WHY there is no lag with them on 4.1.2.
it's not important you disable them or not, the importance here is that 4.3 update of Sony is lagy on this phone because not made on the efficient way, no matter you can get how much free RAM by disabling or not disabling some apps, 4.3 update RAM management is incorrect. the display quality too.
and I got to tell before I buy this phone I made many researches and then I red much of user opinions on 4.3 update .266 and not satisfied to get it, and after that I red many reviews on 4.3 update .201 and it was interesting to test it and after installing it and using about 1 week I noticed visible slow down on my phone even after factory resetting it. then I researched too, to find out how to downgrade it, and after that I downgraded it. besides, researching is not a hard work these days and every kid could do it not just me and you.
AnonD-31388, 09 Jun 2014with disabling google and Xperia apps which are least important to normal use, i can see avg, ... moreis that number excluding ram consumption by setting. i have 360 security installed and free ram is 350+. i do regular cleaning by feature provided by this antivirus app n ram boosts upto 400+
with disabling google and Xperia apps which are least important to normal use, i can see avg, 250+ mb is set to be free most of the times.
Well, everyone else has their own way of resolving things. No dramas.
MoNo, 09 Jun 2014Reallyyyyyy???? It's awsomeeee 350+ mb free RAM, and you disabled every bit of your phone, S... moreDude, do you think that disabling that much apps makes your phone dead? And yet you are complaining that 4.3 is a shit? I am seeing here who actually deserves to carry Nokia 1100. After doing this I am quite relieved from the tension I got after 4.3 update and I'm loving my XSP even more now. I didn't regret for what I did and rolled back to old version but infact found a solution by disabling a bunch of shit which I don't use at all. If you use those all features that's your interest. You should have left your XSP as it is with all those lagginess. Why? You use them all. I can't roll back to 4.1 like you coz wifi is horrible in 4.1? do you have any solution for that? Or do you even use wifi in your 4.1? You don't need to say how smooth is 4.1 and how much free RAM it used to be as everyone knows here. The thing is how much RAM you got after 4.3 update and how you can get some free RAM simply by disabling apps you don't use to prevent crashing your apps and mobile. But you won't understand coz you didn't research and simply rolled back the easiest way of all.
AnonD-31388, 09 Jun 2014Thanks dude... i will do same and share my experience. One qns if we disable Google play serv... morefren, after doing all this I can still download apps from my google play store. Make sure you have not disabled it.
It's awsomeeee 350+ mb free RAM, and you disabled every bit of your phone,
Seriously why you should have a smartphone when you have no problem disabling everything, just go buy a Nokia 1100 and no need to disable anything.
I own an Xperia SP with stock rom 4.1.2 and it's so smooth and I already have 350+ MB free Ram without disabling one of your long list.
and I took a mistake and updat it to 4.3 12.1.A.1.201
and as I would say simple it was horrible, horrible, unbelievable, almost every simple game I was playing smooth on 4.1.2 was laggy on 4.3 update, even a simple game as line birds or line runner, even worst, every app was take about double time to open comparing to 4.1.2, so I hated my beloved phone in that way, so I downgraded my phone to 4.1.2 and again my phone is awesome and as fast as possible.
so I really really avoid you from 4.3 update, it's like a cancer to your phone. but it's upto you, if you want to become sure, here you are, but I never ever update to 4.3 again.
Thanks dude... i will do same and share my experience.
One qns if we disable Google play services, we cannot use Google Play app to download. so how do you download new apps ?
