Hi SP users, there is a very nasty thing that I have found, the camera glass of this phone is prone to scratches, i.e. even when your phone is in your pocket due to friction it gets scratches, even if you try to clean it you are actually increasing the scratches, which reduces the camera quality.Please use a plastic/transparent film in front of camera glass to avoid physical scratches bcoz once you have got the scratches you have no other choice but to change the camera.

I have been using xperia SP since December 16,2013 and it is on jellybean 4.1.2. (4.3) still not available in my region (karachi).
1. It does not lag.
2. Battery backup is superb specially when you are using stamina mode.
3. After factory reset available ram will be 600 mb because its total ram is 768 mb not 1 gb
4. Camera performance is average in daylight.
5. sound quality is awesome.
I do not say anything about its hardware problem because I do not face it.

I am facing 2 bugs with 4.3 update.
1. Touch is not responsive when ph is placed horizontally on a table.
2. Sometimes back key doesn't work
Well i can see a lot of complains about the new update but in my opinion, it is pretty good. I'm not saying it is flawless. Android itself is quite unstable so one can't expect the best all the time. According to me, better RAM management and a good camera app would be the best possible changes Sony can try to make.
james79, 15 Mar 2014For all people wondering whether to update or not - I say don't. Update is full of bugs same a... moreYes you are correct. Sony have good design and good specs, but bad software optimization. I wonder what kind of developers sony hire? They took so much time to update, and when finally releases, comes with lots of bugs.
We wait patiently thinking that sony is taking time for best optimization, but the end result is not good. Sony should learn from its mistakes.
For all people wondering whether to update or not - I say don't. Update is full of bugs same as the Xperia T update. I'm ditching Sony because of this because they did exactly the same thing with the 2011 Xperia ics updates - ruined perfectly good phones. They've had their second chance and failed. And no I'm not a Sammy fan. Their phones look dreadful.
all upgrading people please do not upgrade to 4.3, if possible upgrade to 4.4 or do not upgrade.

I think 4.1 version was good
I've been using this for two months, overall this phone is good. But it has problem when you playing game such as brave frontier or royal revolt 2. The phone become hotter and the battery drain fast.
