What if Sony doesnt give kitkat!!! Installed Cyanogenmod11 Nightly Huashan Kitkat 4.4.4 for SP, running smooth as silk...
The device sells for €170 in my country now, for that price the SP is definitely worth the money!
- Blazing fast (still faster than almost all 2014 midrangers which offer the Snapdragon S400 with Adreno 305, this device however has Adreno 320!)
- Sharp screen, natural colours
- Build quality top notch, sturdy handset
- Notification light
- Good reception
- Audio output (both speakers & headphones) is rich and sounds good, though either can't go loud.
- Bad viewing angles, to some it matter
- Unstable WIFI reception
- Sometimes terrible RAM management, needs to reload the UI and menu icons when returning to homescreen even now and then
- Battery life after 1.5 years is below average
- Camera is simply not good, also a tat slow with flash
- Call quality is quite low, speaker is reasonable
To all the ppl complaining about no Kitkat upgrade: too bad but don't cry, if you want more updates, buy the Z series, A Xperia Z1 e.g. equally priced as a midranger like Xperia T3 only it definitely will get software updates longer as Z series is treated differently by Sony. Simply don't moan about software updates when you buy a last years' midranger.
supun, 11 Sep 2014Xperia SP or Xperia M2??? does display quality of SP better than Display quality of M2??? he... moreScrew sp. Its not getting anymore updates beyond android 4.3. In case of xperia m2, I would advise you to go for a motorola moto g (2014) with same chipset as m2 with a display that is bigger and better than both sp as well as m2. It is also cheaper than the m2 and motorola is very dilligent about updating their phones, unlike sony.
SP is waste mobile n sony is cheating wit customers i saw micromax is better dan Sp
XperiaSp™, 11 Sep 2014ok at first they may have considered sp to be given an update to kitkat, however as you people... morePlease, do not post anymore, as you can't grasp that this isn't about a phone or an update. It's about a company that frauds its own customers by breaking the law making false claims. "Quickly corrected themselves?" That page was up for over three months. I bought my phone in december when a KK firmware was not "under the investigation", but a "future release".
Guys I have complained in the consumer forum of my repective country, it is a request that you do the same at your end
supun, 11 Sep 2014Xperia SP or Xperia M2??? does display quality of SP better than Display quality of M2??? he... moreDO not buy any of them is your are expecting updates because Sony is a cheat and a feign in the matter of mid rangers
Xperia SP or Xperia M2???
does display quality of SP better than Display quality of M2??? help me.... thanxzzz
Yelsy, 10 Sep 2014They did. I personaly saw on their own Xperia SP support page that the next update will be a K... moreok at first they may have considered sp to be given an update to kitkat, however as you people may have known they changed that to under investigation which means that they quickly corrected themselves, possibility could be that SP may not perform well if updated to kitkat or they could've put in the future version in error. whatever the reason is, it's still good that sony changed it to under investigation to set proper expectation with it's consumers.
with or without update i love my Xperia SP, it's still an awesome phone without kitkat.
Good phone. KitKat is worse than JellyBean - no move to sd card. Dont upgrade to KitKat.
I bought sony xperia sp because I saw they post android kitkat update. But now I'am very disappointed. Very bad sony you will lose your customers.
thanks god i did not buy xperia sp......now i have learnt a lesson wait for sometime and always buy a flagship.... feeling really sorry ..... i say soory to all xperia sp owners..... :(
Its time to unlock the bootloader and customise the SP. A huge disrespect by sony to SP users.
Sony is no more a trusted brand, they have cheated to their customers, I am very disappointed. never buy a Sony product again
wastage of money take xperia L c1024 insteed of yhis
this is a hangging mobile so forgeet it
