Re: Would you recommend updating to 4.3?

I will recommend to stay on 4.1. There should be no better version than 4.1.
I will downgrade to 4.1 from 4.3 and sell this phone.

Re: Would you recommend updating to 4.3?

I don't know about Android version 4.1 on Xperia SP because my phone is 5 months old only.

Android version 4.3, build number 12.1.A.1.205 was the best for me. Now it's 207 and I'm having overheat and battery issues. The battery drops about 2%-3% every 5 minutes and almost untouchable when I play games for 15-20 minutes, because it gets extremely hot.

No problem. Good luck with your friend's phone.

Rickard, a Sony officer, says there no more updates for Xperia SP in the future. Version 207 is the last firmware.

I don't think that i have the patience to wait anymore specially after February when Sony destroyed this phone via 4.3 update. I was patient for many months. Now i think it's over, after the fail of Sony's promise to upgrade to kit Kat... I'm totally disappointed
