I wish I could post my review of this firmware but since I am a UK customer with an unbranded phone I have been reading about 4.3 releases for the last six months without being able to use them.

Thought I'd just register to this forum to share my experience.
When the previous update came through, I installed it without thinking too much about it & then went through a couple of months of swearing at the phone, willing it to stop the 'lagging' issues, speaking to Sony's so-called helpline & eventually deciding I could (just about) live with the appalling lag - if all else failed, I could always clone the SIM & go back to my old Blackberry.
Then the 205 notification came through & this time I searched & found this forum to see if could resolve the issues. After reading a few posts/threads I decided to go ahead & installed 205 last night.
My SP is now as smooth as a smooth thing covered in satin & as zippy as a very zippy thing indeed. All the lag is gone, apps worth that much faster, browsing is super quick & maps take no time at all to load.
With me, it was just the lag issue (which trust me, was bad enough) - no overheating or flickering screen, but from my own experience, I would recommend the 205 update.
BTW - I'm not going to say thanks to Sony for fixing the bug - it shouldn't have happened in the first place!

so far for me works fine..except one thing ..at times my phone goes like dark black freezing image getting darker for no reason and then comes back ..I tried with Bravia Engine on and off thought that might be problem but still the same happens at times and also specially after long time usage chatting or browsing .Viber still **bleep** but guess that is viber problem ..any suggestions what should I do with my phone so that dark screen will not happen is kinda annoying when stays like that few seconds and can't use

U R right the update 205 is better than the 201 . I hope there would be more updates to improve the phone more and more. Something like the Kit kat. I only had 163 % of free ram. I heard that kit kat will increase the free ram. Is right or not?

I must say that .205 is overall good in all aspect from the .201, but still there are cons in the .205 update like the own picture once again is not getting diplayed in messages,
2: wifi is constantly losing connection even when I'm sitting right next to te router..!!
3: While on a call if I press any key to choose an option from IVR menu the pressed key doesn't get displayed..
