Just got updated 4.3 in Bangalore, India. Great update, but phone is incredibly slow and sluggish :(
Due to absence of customer friendly laws in our country these manufacturers treat India at its a market only to sell, never care for support.
Done update C5303 thru pc companion
took me almost 2 hours for the whole process
phone hangs/lags a bit when booting up the phone after the update
1.) Wifi range has increased.
2.) New UI feels better than before, additional features added like daydream mode
3.) mobile bravia engine2 is still present
4.) new look for the camera app.
5.) power management tab displays good battery estimated time but for me it only last a whole day. [ maybe due to intensive gaming ]
major problems in my case.
1.) the phone seems to be slower, hangs/lags often, specially when trying to play/open a game like zenonia5.
2.) LED light doesn't beat, doesn't change color anymore when playing music thru walkman.
What is this?, India is bigest market for mobile handset and still no single user got update ?
sony india need to wake up and start rolling else remove the update details from their support site so users will not keep in hope.

4.3 Issue on C5303
Due to Volume limiter issue. illuminating bars seems light up (no sync with beat) but use w/ headset or minimize ur loudspeaker it work fine. hope they can fix it.
-Messaging picture ME is a bug.
-Battery issue drain on first update due to calibration just give it time. I only do charging 1x a day. 2 1/2 hours to be exact.
-WiFi seems connecting faster.
-If using additional Themes it will hang once u turn it off and turn on especially when your sim have simlock. preloaded themes work fine.
-Auto Brightness is much dimmer now.
-Sleep mode fade screen faster.
-Once phone connected to USB or charging seems to stay awake. you need to manually lock the screen. maybe this is the time to use daydream mode.
-Camera for me is still the same crap even with additional apps. thats why i never use it. i use Camera360.
Thats it for Now...
After i updated my phone,its just wonderful...go for it!
Before the update this phone was a pure waste of money...so many bugs...every app shuting down itself...RAM memory not well menaged...
Now its really smoth...and the best its the battery...its just amasing...texting,surfing...non stop online on social pages and emails...and i always have 30% before i charge it...12hours tested...heavy used on social networks,whatsap,viber etc.etc...this 4.3 update is just amasing,its like new phone!
The only bad thing it is the camera...i mean my glass on the back camera got scratched with normal usage...i never put my phone in my pocket with other objects...but im getting a new glass...this software made me change my mind about selling this phone and geting rid of it!
Go for 4.3!
how do I update my fb status so that it shows "via xperia smartphone from sony"? help!!!!
Report after the 4.3 update:
-illumination bar does not blink correctly while in Walkman
-If u use the custom themes, u might get a bug on the volume slider (a small gray box will show)
-If you put a picture on your contacts (Me), it is not showing on the messaging app
-Smoother touch response
-New camera app (cant see the difference on the results though)
...Cant check if wifi bug was fixed
...Cant distinguish if BE2 was not present in the Albums app (others claim that it is now only present in the Movies app)
So far so good for me. Hope that there will be a fix on the Walkman app (illumination bar). And also on the volume slider when using the custom themes.

AnonD-234157, 16 Feb 2014how much takes it for sony xp to charge from 0 to 100 percent?Hey there,
I let my xsp drained after the 4.3 update. I plugged it on a wall charger at 11pm MNL time. Now its 100%, so its almost 6 hours before it reached 100%. (im not using its original charger though, im using my galaxy y's charger). Maybe that's the reason why it took that long.
On stamina mode, it is currently showing 7 days 11 hours estimated battery time and 19 days 10 hours when in standby mode. (it showed a major improvememt after the update. Before, i was only getting an ave of 2 days estimated battery time).
who are not getting the update please mail to this address and your complian.(email@example.com)
SP has got the 4.3 update on 12/2 in Australia, how much time it take to reach in Bangladesh??? One of my bangladeshi friend has got 4.3 yesterday in his TX but when will i get the update?
