  • lolsomany

    embrace urself, xperia S will show no mercury

  • now I wonder will Xperia S even receive JB update or not :-/

  • It would be great if they could confirm more fixes for xperia s users and xperia tablet s users etc etc. Anyway its great that sony is fixing stuff, hopefully they create less new issues so they can release updates faster.
    Anywah thumb this up so everyone can see petition.

  • it will but probably late, i think the important question is will JB update fix all issues users complained about.
    The issues are really anoying, and the next thing is will future updates come much faster not much can be done this soon about upcomming updates.
    Future updates is different story.

  • I’ve used JB on Xperia J and I was totally disappointed…. ‘project butter’ was no where experienced on Xperia J…. i hope Sony will look forward to it and release JB for XS asap

    now we the users of XS are also getting irritated of posting about XS everywhere :-P

  • Finally! I love you Sony.

  • SonyFan

    @all xperia s user: sony may be release 4.2 for Xperia S…..can remember? Stock Jelly Bean 4.2 on Xperia S ?

  • sfordesign

    are you from mars?

  • Andrew D

    What I don’t understand is this….. They take long with the 4.1 update because they want it to be with no bugs
    But! All I hear is bug fix here and bug fix there. If they’re gonna take long, there should be no bugs to fix! That’s why they take long, no?

  • vittuanyt

    well Xperia J is LOW end phone so what u expect….But still it is suppose to be smooth right!

  • we are the owners of 2012 flagship device…

    so who u r again ?!

  • some said that jb in Xperia J made the phone fast and smooth

  • 4.2.2 ?!! really? !

  • agree…although im anti-isheep guy snd owner of xperia s

    totally agree !

  • I can’t update to this version both OTA and sony companion

  • yeah check out on youtube

  • Was anyone else surprised how coherent the Bing translations were?

  • So far my finding is that data connection is more stable whereby downloading from Google Play and data usage for third party apps is smoother and more hassle free because re-downloading due to connection issues happens rarely now where it was quite horrible before. Aside from that, swiping between home screens is finally smooth. This is a first since my first Android from Sony. A congratulations to Sony for this feat may even seem condescending lol.
