I agree with the dariush752000 comment,

I have the uncarrier (T-Mobile) unupdated version.  I have had mine for almost 4 months and not one update has been pushed to this phone.

Re: Xperia Z update to Android 4.4 KitKat

Came across this article which writes:


After Xperia Z1 gets an Android 4.4 KitKat, it will be followed by two other members of the Xperia Z family - Xperia Z and Xperia Z Ultra.

First of all, updates don't always depend on Sony, it partly depends on your carrier!
Second of all, the sourcecode for 4.4 for the Z has already been released and roms are already available and stable!

The update hype to that is not understandable to that, if you are not satisfied with what you have, upgrade your phone, but don't complain! Check for details before!

@MobiusPizza, I'm skeptical about the veracity of this piece of news. I have never seen Sony acted that fast.

@slim207rc, the 4.3 upadate is entirely at the mercy of Sony.   The ones that are on 4.1.2 are going to go to 4.3 and skip over the 4.2 versions.

Re: Xperia Z update to Android 4.4 KitKat

Well, It seems that ZR won't be getting 4.4 update.

I don't understand, if the specs are the same, why does ZR get to be treated in such a way?

 

This is bad, Sony!
