bugsb19, 16 Jan 2015Mine too, i want to change unit right now. Every now and then, it lags then fade out.dear Xperia sp owners is it really a bad phone to buy or it become bad after 4.3 update...???
XSP, 16 Jan 2015thanks if I will update it to 4.3 with .205 CAN I roll back to 4.1.2.????If you update to 4.3 then the service center may or may not downgrade it to 4.1. In my case, in May last year the 12.1.A.1.201 firmware (previous to .205) was unstable and had serious performance issues but the service center people refused to downgrade it, saying that "it is not their policy" to downgrade phones. Some other people on this thread said that the service center in their place downgraded it for them so I can't say if they will do it in your place. If they don't then you will have to unlock the bootloader of the phone (which voids the warranty) and manually flash the stock 4.1.2 ROM.

I also read that 4.3 update made this phone sluggish and ot heats up and lags alot battery is lasts shortly.so buddy is that true??

SP is good for playing music specially if you attached a speaker dock on it and let the LED light illuminate while playing looks amazing, however the phone's speaker is not that loud, so buying a speaker dock is a great idea (philips Fidelio AS140), watching video is good sony's Bravia engine enhance the color so it looks good. Camera is OK, you just need to tweak the settings a little. in my opinion you should just go get other phones, but if you really like SP it's not a really bad choice.
As we all know that sony has ended support,so can I still update sony apps .like walkman,album,movies,sony select,e.t.c.

sonu, 15 Jan 2015Thankx I know that but While buying a smartphone I consider design and UI first then I consid... moreThe motorola moto g 2nd gen is also a better option since it has a bigger display and stereo speakers for better sound and is overall better for watching movies. Both phones have good interfaces in my opinion but the moto also has better update support. Of course the asus zenfone 2 would be worth the wait since it has an even bigger and sharper display and is also way ahead in terms of processing power. Whether you prefer zen UI or not depends on you though.
battery life is great especially if stamina mode is enabled...its got a fairly good camera excellent when taking videos...ma only prob is tt sometimes the battery really gets hot esp if playing a movie.
did i mention how cool the LED is?
XSP, 15 Jan 2015so friend give me your revew about .205 firmware ... any problem you have faced... should I up... morePerformance-wise this .205 firmware is slightly better than the 4.1.2 firmware, as the stutters in the user interface have been reduced. However, the RAM use has gone up by quite a bit (around 300-350 MB used to be free on 4.1 while it is around 220-280 MB on 4.3). Also the entire settings menu colour has changed to white in 4.3 which looks bad but that is entirely my personal opinion and yours might differ. The look of the rest of the interface is a slight improvement over 4.1 but nothing major. Overall it is an improvement but if you do gaming (real racing 3 still crashes though), multitasking and if you don't want a white background UI then better stick to 4.1 and if you aren't a multitasker then 4.3 should do okay though there are still some lags.

Honestly just invest on other phones, SP is quite old now with the same price you can get Xiaomi Mi3 or even Mi4. the newly announced Asus Zenfone 2 also has better specs with cheaper price.
spaceman_k11, 15 Jan 2015Yes, I meant to say 12.1.A.1.205.so friend give me your revew about .205 firmware ... any problem you have faced... should I update it from 4.1.2 to 4.3 having .205 firmware... please share with me if you have encountered any problem from that firmware...
