Re: request of a new frimware update for XPERIA SP

Yes, you can also mark for the Attention of Mr. Kaz Hirai - he is the CEO of Sony and he refers to smartphones as "pesky mid range smartphones that made losses of billions of Yen". If, he is a man of principle, he may (very unlikely) issue a directive to the smartphones department to quickly work on it and give those "pesky" Sony Xperia SP users their KK and also to get them off his back as he is already having a hard time trying to turn round the fortunes of Sony Corporation.

Re: Facts about Sony Xperia SP

Sony Plans to Cut 1,000 Jobs in Mobile Division
by Sohrab Osati | Sep 18, 2014 |
due to Sony Mobile’s inability to sell mid-range smartphones in significant quantities.
They will suffer more as new models released now are inferior to the Sony Xperia SP. They should have updated Sony Xperia SP to KitKat and thereby  garner more sales than they envisaged.

-Beter battery life (apx 30℅ than stock rom)
-Beter personalisation of device (everythin can be adapted)

Things that you lose:

-No more track ID
E sad ako ti se sve ovo isplati, treba da uradis sledece:
