Re: New Firmware 15.3.A.1.17

Guys .. bad news again!

we are not getting any 4.3/4.4 upgrade from sony!

I sent them a very long mail telling them all the bugs present in this device and giving links to the support forum itself so that they too can see what issues we all are facing .. This is what i got in reply! :

PS : They are screenshots divided into diffrent images.

Ofcorse I was furious from this and I replied to them with a proper detailed comparison b/w Xperia M and Xperia L ... comparing everything from chipset to display also telling them that repairing through pc companion or via sus is useless ...and proved it that in pricing as well as in specs .. xperia L is better than M... and we should get atleast 4.3 update!

this was there reply :

Now its been 4 days and I haven't recieved any call... I sent them another mail providing my contact no. and asking them to reply soon ... but this whole thing clearly shows that sony is not answerable right now that why the **bleep** are we still stuck on 4.2 even after paying more bucks and xperia M is running 4.3!!!

I also request you all to send all your problems regarding xperia l on this official mail id of sony so that atleast they realise how many people are suffering and provide us the update!

UPDATE : I got a call from the senior executives ...and guess what .. we aren't getting any updates!

The reason he gave me was that we can only provide limited no. of updates for xperia L... and when i asked him why is xperia M running 4.3 and we are not eligible for the same... he told me its the fault of developer team and only they decide which handset should be given which update.. I told them to provide me with developer team's contact no. and he told that they can't be contacted! Only my request can be fowarded! Now they have given me waiting time for a week ... but he was consistently saying that there is no hope for future updates :'(

Try to call a number, make sure it won't be picked up. Block the proximity sensor and the display would turn off, remove it so that the display turns back on and end the call. That should turn off the proximity sensor.

Re: New Firmware 15.3.A.1.17

My wife is happily using Huawei Ascend P7 instead of Xperia L.

No more Sony.

 

@Essharnouby

The only to way to show Sony your "hate" and make them realise their mistake is to buy phone from another maker.

Because only place they do feel anything is their wallets. 

Basically it is the same pattern with every phone maker i am afraid - only premium models get reasonable support.

Midrange and low-end phones get very little.

But on other brands there is not so irritating bugs which is not resolved by developers. This is patent of SoRRy - you get only sorry and no more.
