X SP prices in india down by 5k in last 8 mths.
I bought from sony center for INR 22500 and now it is INR 17390
and X C is still INR 18990.. what rubbish.... due to unstable 4.3 update this has happened.
looks like now 4.4 is not going to happen to X SP due to such price drop.
Omar AbdELHak, 29 Jun 2014i need to buy phone at the same prise of sony xperia sp do u know any phone better than xperia... morehmm... samsung galaxy s III 3G is a good alternative ( my sister uses it, when she open camera/apps/games it open them faster than my xperia SP ), Xperia ZR here in my country is almost priced the same with Xperia SP, google nexus 4 is also a good option if you can find a cheap one (normally in playstore if it is available in your country), those are the only phone that i can think of at the moment which are priced the same and are good alternatives for Xperia SP.
New Update 12.1.A.1.205 rocks on Xperia SP.
If any one have any problem.. Do it fresh install Via SUS or Full Reset.

Those who are being suffered from bad pic quality, install ZOOM Camera (pro). Best camera app for non moving objects.
For moving apps use the stock camera app.

Kronos22, 29 Jun 2014i want to know is this phone good for gaming and any other disadvantage before buying it guys ... moreGreat for gaming, Asphalt 8 runs flawlessly. Make sure after you buy it to update to Jelly Beam 4.3 (the .205 update, it is the newest) via PC companion with these steps:
1. Make a factory reset with checked option to delete all files.
2. Do the update
3. Make another factory reset with checked option to delete all files.
I have also imputed a 32 Gb SD card (only about 3Gb used so far though) and it is great. Antutu benchmark score 23600 - think of it as a phone better than Galaxy S3 and not that lower than Galaxy S4. The S4 actually has a lower 3D performance score, they both have the same GPU, but the Xperia SP runs it on 720p while the S4 on 1080p. But you won't notice a difference.
The battery is the best since I've started using touch phones. 2 days with wifi, browsing, light gaming, calling, etc. I think that the bad opinions about this phone is written by people who didn't do a "clean" update, as I described it at the beginning.
The sound loudness is not that loud and the camera could be better, even though the video recording is great. But overall I personally got a better phone than I expected.
