Xperia Sp 4.3 update

i update my xperia SP firmware .254 it was good for the quick settings but when i'm using the the stamina mode the notification light does not go on that is very annoying works fine without stamina mode. Well i like the transparent illumination bar so much and its also helpful for notification.

 

I will also expect two more things with the 4.3 update ---

1) When listening songs i want to have the music light effect even when the phone is locked and

2) Buying a mid-range android phone and don't have native video call option its also very frastrating,so i wish they will with this update.

 

How do you guys think ?

Re: Xperia Sp 4.3 update

Don't expect anything. We're out of luck. Sony are refusing to acknowledge anything to do with the Xperia SP, it's like the child they have disowned. Shame on Sony.

Re: Xperia Sp 4.3 update

You can't basically find any smartphone today (low-end to high-end) with a native video calling app. You've got a variety of VoIP and video calling apps on Google Play (like Skype), so I suggest you use them instead. smile happy

Don't forget to hit that KUDOS-button smile happy

Re: Xperia Sp 4.3 update

I had this option (sic!) on my old nokia c6 but  never worked because is not a smartphone on the provider's eyes and I need to change because my very good plan was ended and did not work with smartphones(which I don't see any difference between the plansshocked

What about Android 4.4 (KitKat) for Xperia SP?

We haven't received Android 4.3 yet, and there are already announcements for Android 4.4 (http://www.gsmarena.com/android_44_kitkat_and_nexus_5_to_go_official_on_october_28-news-6992.php).

 

Does anyone know, will Xperia SP receive Android 4.4?

Re: What about Android 4.4 (KitKat) for Xperia SP?

There are other threads on the same link/topic

 

That's a rumor and highly unlikely, Sony posted that the Xperia SP will get 4.3, we don't know any specific date or time frame, it doesn't make sense that Google will allow other OEMs to release 4.4 when they haven't done it, nor released the new Nexus 5 with 4.4

Hi everyone, a quick note on our software roadmap…

So, Sony’s Jelly Bean 4.2 upgrade for Xperia Z and Xperia ZL is well underway* – next up, Xperia ZR and Xperia Tablet Z will start receiving 4.2 from early August.

 

Yesterday you probably saw Google announce the next version of Jelly Bean (Android 4.3) – we’re already getting stuck in and can confirm we’ll make 4.3 available for: Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, Xperia Tablet Z, Xperia SP and Xperia Z Ultra…

We will find out whether this KitKat announcement is a rumor or not soon enough.

When will 4.3 for Xperia SP?

Hi, when will sony xperia update the sp to jb 4.3? Long ago they announced that they were going to update and since then have not said anything. I hope that with this update is possible to move applications from internal memory to the SD card as 8GBs of which only 5.8 available very shortly. To say that I have installed NFS Most Wanted and weighs more than 2GBs and almost no space.
