Re: News: No 4.4 update for SP

Xperia should give an update where, when you turn off mobile data all the apps which use Internet should force stop.. This will improve battery and performance.. Think on it don't

4.3 Bugs/Request

This is a message to the Sony developers. I've been an Xperia user since Sony Ericsson started making android Xperia's and based on the current support for the Xperia SP I highly doubt my next phone will be an Xperia. There are many people in the same situation (XDA forums).

So my humble request is that you release KitKat as previously promised. If you decide not to release KitKat then atleast fix the 4.3 bugs as mentioned below.

Bugs in 4.3 firmware:

- Poor RAM management.
- Animation bar overlaps text when uninstalling apps.
- Slight heating issue.

- Sketch app disappeared from update center.

Please consider KitKat for the SP, as much as you want you can't keep it under investigation till October (EoL), so please update this capable phone.

Best regards
Smartphones:

Xperia X10 mini pro, Xperia X8, Xperia Live with Walkman, Xperia L & Xperia SP

And:

- Bluethoot disconection when wifi is on;

- Low volume in calls, in internal speaker, headphones and in bluethoot handsfree

- Bad camera (focusing and taking pictures)

 

Please fix this, especially the low volume in call (i can't use my bluethoot handsfree)

Upgrade Xperia SP to android 4.4

Well... I know thet users maybe spaming, but sony deserves this. When I bouth this phone, an official sony support page sayes "next update kit kat 4.4" I sow this very nice 'n' clear. No mistake. We all know what happened next, and we also know what is going to happen next. Well, there is not much that I can do abot it, bat I can spam you till I sold this phone, and became some others problem. Do I need to say that I'm gonna buy new sony device never, maby not even then. It's important to say that i'm sony/ericsson fan for years, I mean years. This can be only understand as fooling potencial buyers, beacuse I wont buying this phone that I knew that 4.3 will be the last version of software. Greetings from Serbia.
Btw
This forum is usles. No hard fillings for mods and admins on this site, but you are guys. And it's not your fault. Here MUST be official represent of Sony. Bad support.
SonyEricsson K300, SonyEricsson K510i, SonyEricsson W200i, SonyEricsson K530i, SonyEricsson W380i, SonyEricsson XPERIA mini pro, SONY XPERIA acro S, SONY XPERIA SP (that's the last one beleve me)

If you are after an offical answer then honestly speaking this is not the place you will find one - You either need to contact Xperia care or the Sony development team or check the official blog

Re: Upgrade Xperia SP to android 4.4

It is my opinion, yours might be different....

Honestly speaking I don't think we are going to get Kitkat for Xperia SP now. As only 1 month is left, after that support from Sony for firmware updates will end. Even if they release Kitkat, it is going to have atleast 1-2 bugs which we do not want. 

 

I just waiting for an official answer from Sony....YES or NO......
