XperiaSp™, 10 Sep 2014as said previously they did not promise to give kitkat update to Xperia SP.They did. I personaly saw on their own Xperia SP support page that the next update will be a KitKat. Later, they changed that to "Under investigation".
Here it is, in january 2014:
no promised KitKat update for Xperia Sp. good job sony. I'm going to switch in htc or samsung. bye bye sony.
i am actually hurt. Xperia sp beats each and every mid range android phone released this year( s5 mini, one mini 2, xperia m2, lg g2 mini etc etc) in synthetic benchmark. That was undoubtedly the best midrange phone of last year. It has adreno 320 and 1.7ghz dual krait cores. And was originally promised that it will get kitkat. I dont know who made the call but it was dumb not to update SP. You dont leave behind your one of the best and most popular phone to create massive negative reaction from your customers. I was considering z3c but i wont buy it now and will go for Galaxy Alpha, cause i used xperia u and the same misfortune happened to me, with SP, its twice in a row. I am sorry but thats it, no more Xperias, i've learnt my lesson.
XperiaSp™, 10 Sep 2014as said previously they did not promise to give kitkat update to Xperia SP.They did in case u bought urs in the later stages of its lifecycle. It was clearly stated on their webpage tht they would give kitkat.
definitely sony cheated its customers....i had a very very good opinion on SONY mobile....but never will i buy a single goddamn phone from its company..

Time for new phone,maybe Z2 :-)
I wasted money on it only for the kitkat update. Cheats of the highest order.
Sad to hear about the company breaking its promise on kit kat and shoving a half baked 4.3 update for sp. My lesson...won't let anyone in my circle of friends waste money on such brands....
Well, people, it's officially over. No KK firmware from Sony
Unlock your bootloaders, put on the CM or any other ROM ou prefer and next time just skip Sony's phones when you buy a new one. Don't support the company that lies to its customers by promising one thing and then reneges it.
