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.

Dear all user Sony Xperia SP
I have faced many problems after upgrade the version 4.1 to 4.3
Mobile too hot and battery discharge quickly
Main Camera quality poor
RAM maximum time full free ram only 100 to 150 mb available
All apps unfortunately stop said again and again
Mobile work very slow
Apps open time nearabout 1 minute
Battery take too large time to 100 % near about 4 hrs...
I am using complete security antivirus 1200/- from starting
I request to Sony Xperia pls solved all problems.
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.

jade, 13 Mar 2014Hiive got a problem with sp. After i updated this a week ago to 4.2, im experiencing lagging a... morelike what Kevin said, SP don't have 4.2 update only 4.3, i can understand how you feel about the lag it is a common problem after the 4.3 update.. there's nothing much we can do though unless if you are willing to root your phone which i do not recommend, what i can advise you is to wait for the new 4.3 update with firmware 12.1.A.1.192 it is said to be an update to fix all the bugs that we guys reported in sony official facebook page. but at the moment there is still no official announcement on when it will be available.
thanks to prabal27 for the headsup

Its specs are really good .... and XPERIA... moreas what k11 answered to you, xperia ZR is way better than SP, it may seem on benchmark scores that SP is better on some test but it is not, ZR has four cores and is clocked only slightly lower than SP but is awesome already, and i'm not disappointed with my SP before the update, the 4.3 update ruined my SP i experience more lag when opening apps/camera, well i'm hoping that the new firmware will fix this still waiting for it. but my advise is go for Xperia ZR...
