Re: What about Android 4.4 (KitKat) for Xperia SP?

Android 4.4 Kit-Kat is out. XPERIA SP got a good hardware capabilities. I expect Sony to update 4.4 as soon as possible(without major bug please)..Samsung and HTC already announced an update for number of models, I hope you don't make us stand behind them..

Re: What about Android 4.4 (KitKat) for Xperia SP?

I'm dissaponted to see Sony being quiet about dates of update to 4.3 and possibly to 4.4 which is yet to be globally released (at the moment only Nexus 5 has it).

 

I'll wait till january 2014 and then decide whether to keep or sell my Xperia SP.

Re: What about Android 4.4 (KitKat) for Xperia SP?

Believe it when I see it and Sony said the sp had a great battery not true and it's built in going to cost to get it taken apart for a new one installed. Plus the screen is unresponsive until I dropped it seems you have to bash it up to fix problems

Re: When will 4.3 for Xperia SP?

Screenshot_2013-10-27-20-04-36.pngThe only flaw of this phone, I have a micro sd class 10 of 32 gbs just for multimedia files. Sony really hope in a future update for this phone makes it possible to move applications to the micro SD.

Re: When will 4.3 for Xperia SP?

Xperia SP is well capable of having next versions of Android. I actually laugh when people say for Android 4.3 you need 2 GB RAM, ha ha ha ha.

 

Here is a link which gives us a hint that Xperia SP most probably will get KitKAT

I do not think you need 2 gbs of ram, android 4.3 phone performance improves.

Re: When will 4.3 for Xperia SP?

People @ SONY(specifically the Xperia SP team) I guess its high time that you heard our pleas, as majority or all SP users are craving for 'move apps to external memory' feature.....
so please team, 4.2, 4.3 or KITKAT, please don't miss out on this in your roadmap.

Re: When will 4.3 for Xperia SP?

News forwarded today by Sony Croatia on their FB profile: http://blogs.sonymobile.com/2013/11/07/on-jelly-bean-4-3-kit-kat-4-4/

 

4.3 Ok - from next month

 

4.4 "We’re also happy to tell you about the first raft of Xperia products that we’ll make Android 4.4 Kit Kat" - no SP yet. Hope it will also get 4.4!
