Re: Xperia SP update availability

I have a unbranded xsp on 4g vodafone and I to updated my phone yesterday via pc companion and the firmware stayed the same. The only difference i have noticed but i could be wrong(poor memory) is in settings it now has a 4g(preferred)wcdma/gsm option where as before im sure it said LTE/wcdma/gsm.

Re: Xperia SP update availability

yes, I am led to beleive it enables 4G. However SONY has not had the grace to tell us what the upgrade does,and why they have not upgradded us to 4.3?  Cusotmer service get worse and worse... they are only after  your money, once they have it then they  ignore you

Re: Xperia SP update availability

Yeah, they added a few new bits of bloatware, and changed the build number from R13A to R15A but I don't know exactly what that has done. Maybe we had to be updated to the latest build number before we got 4.3. Also I noticed that I now have more free ram than I did before, but it could be a coincidence.

I am still waiting too... 

 

Can't believe that Sony does not support its faithful customers who buy direct...
