Sony Mobile has just confirmed that the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for the Xperia S, Xperia SL, Xperia ion and Xperia acro S will commence from the end of May.

The delay doesn’t surprise us given the tweet sent about by Sony Mobile last week. However, given recent rumours pointing to an imminent release, the news news is likely to disappoint many.

Whilst we’d much prefer to wait for a bug-free update than for the company to rush out the update, the perception this delay sends out on Sony’s update policy will only cause harm. All owners can hope for now is that when the update does eventually come it has been treated with the extra polish that the owners deserve.

    Suck a cock Sony.

  • tRoll

    Not regreting the fact that I bought a nexus 4 instead of a xperia Z, my nexus will be on android 5.0 KLP and my XS still on ICS, this is how a flagship phone is treated by Sony. shame on you sony, shame on you.
    Never again

  • Former xperia

    Sony makes ton of phones a-z
    and them cant provide best software solutions for all of them #shame

    sony customers have to sit and watch about laggy firmwares sony provides

  • http://www.facebook.com/riotrick Rick Schippers

    End of may…. Totally ridiculous. That’s my fist and last sony phone.

  • Lucian

    I have lost all of my hope for Sony… I was positive all the time but now that they confirmed that XS gets JB from end of May I am just done… It will probably be end of summer until we will get it… Or never.. They will figure out that it just doesn’t work that good and cancel it… I think Sony wishes they would never create XS.. It looks like they hate it from the bottom of their hearts

  • ffdsfsdfsdfwert

    GOODBYE SONY AND NEVER NEVER NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    NEVER AGAIN SHALL I BUY ANOTHER SONY PHONE.

  • yUlek

    Haha, you must be kidding me ;) Another month? Sony devs are just shitty. Commence from the end of may, so we will se JB update in 2nd half of June

  • Marcus Ulvenhag

    Seriously!? I mean C’mon. I was like, oh maybe this week or next. But end of may..

    Look I have a Acro S so yea first xperia S at maybe May 31st then SL, Ion, and last in the end of June my Acro S, hopefully.. -_-

  • Dean

    Have some patience you idiots its not like your phones aren’t working at all what difference will the jelly bean update make anyway shit all tbh

  • BiJi

    To many Unfixed bugs for to long…. this is not how you take care of your costumers sony….

  • http://www.facebook.com/Infinia Isaac Isaiah Yong

    It is kind of disappointing to know that it will only be released at the END of May which is a month from now. However, it is still better if the update comes a little later but is actually good, rather than if the update comes early and is actually really bad.
    Let’s just hope the update doesn’t disappoint us.

  • Fuckingpiceofshit

    FUCK SONY! Anyone that defends Sony at this point are either fanboys or FUCKING RETARDED! BYE BYE SONY!

  • SonyIdiot

    F*CK SONY

  • yUlek

    Yeah, lets wait till 2014 for JB update.

  • Nestor

    my last Sony phone. Never again. It is the way Google gets it’s Image totally ruined by manufacturers

  • Francesco Vaccarella

    When Google will reveal Android 5.0 I’ll get 4.1, that’s just bullshit. Shame on you Sony that’s how you treat your flagship phone of 2012. I’ll never buy an other smartphone made by you and I hope everyone do this in the future.

  • faysal

    xpria s jelly bean… lot of bug has been fixed,,, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9ZuT_0XLtk

  • Xpeeisaaas

    everyone just know how to complaint. Samsung didn’t even upgrade of their
    previous set ace 2 or note or s2 cannot even perform or run well. htc ditch all their old model. want to provide a good update for their customers also have issue

  • joshuam8

    lets go to japan n break the heads of the sony software team by throwing our XS at them…. now this is seriously annoying

  • Jv Sykes

    That’s FUCKIN ridiculous!!!
    Sony must learn how to treat their VIP customers who would pay 500£ for a bloody phone and get treated like shit!! Huh am sure that Xperia Z will have the same destiny. hold on Xperia Z huhuh
    Fuck you Sony ..

  • mirajkar.aniket

    LOL! I sold my Xperia S today! Peace! All the best XS users. You might recieve the update this year if you are lucky!

  • Michael Salib

    Didn’t they announced that the release will be officially end of April…now its at end of May…& @ end may it’ll reach our phones according to the carriers in different countries we’ll recieve it by mid or end of June….total disappointment

  • andy

    I love htc

  • Teng How Lai

    Don’t even let me see in this discussion any fucking retard to defend Sony, this page is solely reserved to FUCK SONY!! And to even hope for polished bug free update from them is even more retarded! FUCK!!!

  • Saurav

    Launching 4.1.2 update in Q2 2013 is seriously either a lame step or you’re still a buggy company. This is a major let down for Sony. I regret the purchase. If it’d have been 4.2.2, then that would have been justified. Since Xperia S is supposed to be the flagship model of 2012 so main priority should gad been given to it.

    Seriously, your strategy should be re-evaluated.

  • bodhi

    Bloody hell, chill people, it hasn’t been cancelled, just delayed so they can deliver a better update. Going by my Z the differences between ICS and JB are negligible, if you install the new launcher and Messaging app, you are 75% of the way there already. Project Butter is nice but Google Now eats batteries for breakfast so its turned off on the Z. ICS on my S still works fine, so I don’t really see the issue to be fair.

  • http://www.facebook.com/musikamaru Jhonbert Magana

    So you mean to tell me, “we’re just copying what Samsung and Htc are doing” is a valid reason?

  • http://www.facebook.com/dark.moyan Đark Moyan

    That wouldn’t be a surprise anymore as they are doing this all the time.

  • Yusuf

    Very low possibility that is. Google offered them to make the first Nexus, they declined.

  • Michael Salib

    As I said before…they just wanna leave more space for the new devices as xperia Zhit & xperia SuckP to be sold more cuz they know that ppl got XS when they receive the JB updaye they will be satisfied (if bugless) & wont pay 700 $ for another sony phine already got beaten on benchmarks by HTC in all ways.

  • Skymareajsosk

    When was that ?
    They were not in the android game when HTC NEXUS ONE , which was the first nexus was released

  • http://www.facebook.com/im.yjtan Yong Jie Tan

    My next phone must be Nexus too, really sick of being cheated, they said it would be April.

  • Pritchett

    It’s ALL about sales and marketing. They want more sales for new flagship. Tbh i was at the store last week and i was ready to buy the Nexus 4. But just the build quality of that phone put me off a little so i didn’t buy it. Just imagine all android updates will first be released for Google phones.

    Also i love Xperia S, i love Xperia Z’s design as well, but the only thing is, Xperia S ICS is really buggy and slow. The more i use it the slower it’s getting. I never pay attention to software updates since i’m not a heavy smartphone user, but really why shouldn’t i buy a faster phone?.

  • franklin

    agree fully.i have the launcher and cybershot camera mod,its great.i just feel the ics to be lil buggy and the camera interface needs improvement with burst shot and more features

  • Roger

    fuck,Sony,this is my first Sony phone,also is my last Sony phone

  • http://www.facebook.com/Black.Swan.Welcome Areczek Pawłowski

    Be sure Sony that the Xperia S is the very LAST DEVICE what I bought from you. You should be ashamed!!!

    btw: in may will be presentation a new version of Android – 5.0 Key Lime Pie – if u don’t know yet, Sony!!

    I’M VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED IN YOU !!! NO MORE YOUR PRODUCTS !!!

  • Jerry Berglund

    Well I think it was the second generation Nexus Sony Ericsson got the offer to build the new Nexus-phone. But Bert Nordlund (or what his name was) turned it down that time.

  • skimpychimpy

    Plenty room on Ol’ Ship Nexus…we’d love to have you aboard!

  • surethom

    I just dont believe Sony anymore, I had have various tweets from Sony saying.

    1. Jelly Bean will be out the end of march
    2. Jelly Bean will be out a few weeks after March
    3. Jelly Bean will be out the beginning of April
    4. Jelly Bean will be out a few weeks after April
    5. Jelly Bean will be out bigining of May
    6. Jelly Bean will be out the end of May

    Stopped believing Sony until I get reports that someone had installed Jelly Bean

  • surethom

    I agree Unless it is a cybershot phone with LARGE sensor & Xenon flash.

  • Andrew D

    The delay on Sony…… Jesus!
    For that they should release a very smooth and good 4.1
    If not a 4.2 :)

  • hash

    i cant wait for this shit anymore… sony is too busy with their new phones.. they dont give a rats ass to their previous ones… shame on you sony .. shame on you!!

  • niketttt

    ANd fucking cant they release an official statement how sorry they r for not updating our phone..we deserve an apology wit some kind of explanation..but we get nothing except delayed delayed..fuck u sony…never again going for ur awesome hardware or looks…sony’s a fucking expensive whore!!

  • hans

    Humanity at it’s best, a crying baby that fcuks Sony. how cute..

    Hey, at least we got a solid date, so why all the complaints? It’s not like you can’t live with ICS anymore can you? So stop whining. Rather than fcuking about the phone update, get a life, make an Android app, sell it, now that’s a life worth living for, not fcuking about phone update. It is better to know that you get the JB, rather than using Samsung mid end and in the end no JB.

  • reza

    NEVER AGAIN SHALL I BUY ANOTHER SONY PHONE.

  • TrixzD

    Ok now Xperia S users have a point. End of May is ridiculous and Sony will have to play their game better in the future if they really do want to become like Samsung and be a big name in Android smartphones.

    Nexus is great I dont own a Nexus phone but I own a Nexus 7 and the updates when released arrive in no time all thanks to the Nexus program

  • qdos10

    Cya Sony. This whole update debacle for a flagship phone is just hopeless. Samsung here I come They don’t release phones with outdated OS and then expect you to wait another 7 months to receive another outdated OS. You lost me and many others by the look of things.

  • Victor

    Who knows any decent stable 3rd-party 4.1/4.2 firmware for Xperia S?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000266046730 Alvin Cheng

    I don’t want to say anything. Unfortunately, LG, my previous phone, which was blamed for no update before, is doing much better now. I found LG is good, and I will switch to it.

    Xperia S owners, well done as you tried to love your phone and keep using for a year. I know you all suffer a lot but endure. Unfortunately, Sony just wants to play tricks with you all.

  • vicky

    First they said end of March,
    Now end of May
    Next should be end of July :P

  • Nzshock

    What my Xperia Z came with 4.1.2 when i got it last month????

  • http://www.technetsavvy.com Sagar Nargolkar

    What the fuck ?????????? Sony is a motherfucking stupid company, wth ??????? End of may ? kiss my ass Sony, stupid motherfuckers man, what’s more surprising and frustrating is the update for Xperia P is coming nxt week a month before the XS. Fuck you Sony, no Sony from now!!! Never mahn………

  • EMRE

    NEVER , EVER AGAIN SONY. I REGRET SO MUCH FOR HAVING XPERIA S. THATS MY FIRST AND LAST SONY PHONE. BYE BYE

  • hash

    CM 10 based firmware will provide you with jelly bean xperience but they omit the sony features … far better battery life on cm10 than ics based ROMS

  • Abdulrhman Khaled

    i’ll never trust u again Sony, shame on u Sony

  • hash

    gona buy htc from now on… samsung is too mainstream.. sony is just …. pathetic now.. ( now your just somebody that I used to know)

  • fucklkkkkkkk sooonyyyyyyyyy

    where the fack is 4.2 for xperia z ?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000266046730 Alvin Cheng

    As I said before no firmwares are totally bug-free. They need to roll out as soon as possible, and respond to customers’ report quickly. Now, users wait for long, and will wait for less bug longer and longer, and endless.

    If they want to include more features and function, they should do this step by step, rather than once.

  • Disgusted

    And by the end of May, they’d say considering you people are our highly valued customers we have decided to chuck 4.1 and provide you with 4.2 in July. Hurrah!! What a horror buying Xperia SL. Good phone but horrible service considering the amount of bugs. Arrive derci Sony!

    And it’s (x100 bullshit) if the update doesn’t comes with Small Apps!

    Calm down guys. At least we have a date on the updates. It’s unlikely that KLP will be announced on I/O anyways (take this as a grain of salt as PA has stated)).
    It’s better to have bug free firmware at a later date than a buggy firmware at an early date. Yes, I know how it feels to not get the latest updates. I was an owner of Xperia Sola and I am too disappointed that it won’t get Jelly bean. I guess it might be the same reason as Samsung’s equivalent lower end phone.

    I now have the Xperia ZL, and I have a feeling that Sony ‘might’ treat it the same way. But it’s still an awesome phone anyway.
    And I’m sorry, I chuckled a little while reading the comments below.

  • Dipish

    Change of attitude: I **might** still get a Sony Phone sometime in the future if there’s a fresh CyanogenMod (or other ROM) build for it.

    Flashed CM10 FXP a couple of weeks ago and don’t give a crap about Sony’s official updates ^_^

  • Putra Wahyu S

    Hmmm..,, kinda disappointed :/ but I will wait till May I hope it really have no bugs..

    And buy LG Nexus 4

    You I will not buy

  • thelastredshirt

    It’s been stated since December that the Xperia S will receive JB after the Xperia P. The Xperia P is only just getting it this week. Did you really think it was going to come out earlier?

    In other news, Abderlrahman Khairy pushed back the date he would provide sexual satisfaction to women, saying that his hardware was too small. Women were quick to point out that he had been promising an update for over 2 years now and they would rather go find a real man with the most up-to-date firmware.

  • http://www.facebook.com/RonStrongLeeds Ron Strong

    Very peeved. I think I will try and wait but the Nexus 4 option does look like the best. My S cannot hold a 3G connection if it sniffs a wifi connection in the vicinity, then has to reboot to reconnect. I’m sick of this

  • Lemmip Regiseir

    Those poor folks at Sony working on the update (probably two people at most). Their employer doesn’t want to pay too much for useless updates of legacy products, the customers wanted the update months ago, and the customers WILL mock the hell out of the update if it contains even one single tiny bug.
    Whatever they do, they won’t receive ANY appreciation for their hard work. Must be frustrating…

  • dime

    So i’m now for sure that i’m not going to buy sony phone anymore except to give me the phone for free… First i ‘m going to say that i have lost my phone actually somone have stolen my xperia s all that while waiting to be updated which will include app MyXperia so with it i could found but all ends bad… Great design and user inteerface actually the best one but support software fall down everthing … Now all my stuff is exposed to somone else hands which now i’m reading that samsung has app wipe phone which allows to you to delete all your staf remotely sony good job nice phones are going out but software sorry i’m dissapointed…

    So nervous to lost my phone and on top of taht no update which could help me to find my phone with app MyXperia and like on top top of that my staff is lost except dropbox who cloud my pictures but somone else now have my informations… unhappy end with sony mobile factory which starts very well but messed up everthing

  • pazzz

    Okay, nice.
    I trusted Sony for many years, but this goes too far. I WAS a proud owner of the Xperia S, but now I’m very dissapointed with Sony. There comes AOSP for Xperia Z while the S does not have Jelly Bean, neither AOSP (and the AOSP started earlier for Xperia S). That’s very sad how Sony treats his first Smartphone with the “SONY” brand and at the same time their past flagship. I don’t have any choice, Cyanogen Mod – here I come!
    Now I truly regret not buying a Samsung or HTC. And I was a big Sony fan(boy), was…
    good work Sony, good work…

  • Adam

    They should not even bother with this “update”. After such a period of time it’s like an insult towards all Xperia S users. Shit, until today I really wanted to buy Xperia Z as my next smartphone even though I found late April to be very ridiculous date for Jelly Bean update for XS. But late May? 11 months after ICS upgrade? Damn I don’t want to make any more dealings with these bunch of clowns. I’d rather use Nokia 3310 for the rest of my life.

    I’ll buy new Xperia Z so I won’t be stuck on ICS for long… tired of waiting xperia S JB update…. I know why sony delays and confirmed it’s final release of the JB update for Xperia S because they still found any problem from it… That’s why they reschedule the release..

    I now have the Xperia ZL, and I have a feeling that Sony ‘might’ treat it the same way. But it’s still an awesome phone anyway and pretty sure Sony will push more updates given the fact that it is future proof.
    And I’m sorry, I chuckled a little while reading the comments below.”

    And a couple of minutes later you just changed your mind completely. And btw. It’s not Android that’s the problem. Sony’s the problem for having late updates. But to be honest, I don’t care if I have to wait another month for Jelly Bean. I’d rather wait for a non-laggy update than get the update on the release date like “Google Nexus” that might make it laggy.

    Sincerely,
    Proud Xperia S user.

    Many rumours tells this story that is somesort of a powerstruggle within Sony that made this fuzz. When Sony Mobile had its headquarter in Sweden, it seemed to have planned to role out JB 2012, but Sony wanted; when the headquarter mooved to Tokyo, do the developing theirselves. But suddenly found out, they wasnt able to do it right. So Lund in Sweden had to take over to fix everything. And thats seems to be the reason why everything is late. But its just rumours.

    Well, this sucks. Hopefully this update will be more than perfect, and give us all the features available on newer phones. Even though I fear it will just be old ICS with a jelly bean skin, hopefully if that’s the case, the good guys at XDA will do the rest.

    Yes. I saw like 5 comments with the name “Chanda” and they all had completely different opinions. One was the same comment as you claim you posted. Another one was that he hates Sony AND Android and would choose Apple. A third saying he’s going to buy a Samsung phone. And there is one where he doesn’t like the update being so late, but he’ll buy the Xperia Z.

    Guys!
    Sony’s sailing startegy is brilliant but very selfish and sad:they want you to abandon your xperia s and move to xpera z,thats why they delaing the update,they will spread the update only for the stubborn costumers that stay with the xperia s and because the dont have achoic.

They did kinda agree that they were wrong with how they did with that phone, and after that Sony Ericsson got into a new path. But why cant Sony at least talk about it? They must se that we are quite many owners who is really baffled and angry about how they treated us. How can they dont recognize us? This isnt, they just say. We arent forgotten. But we all kinda feel forgotten. We have complainted about Xperia S for a long time. Some would even say 1 year almost. So how can they just dont go out and make a statement or something?

    Because now Sony is independent from Ericsson and now they begin to show this ignorant japanese “we-are-superior” behaviour. Instead of listening to its customers when they need them most (we all know how bad sonys financial situation is at the moment), they still seem to feel like they are still the leader in consumer electronics and the products will sell themselves ( I would say they behave like Apple, but Apple does a better job with only communicating before the update is really in the “close to final stage”).

    All that noise about updates is simply ridiculous! I really don’t understand why you should get and get for months and years immediate software updates about a product you bought moths ago. Ok if it is a critical bug fix but not the latest software out of the box. You paid money for a (top quality/price) phone conceived as it is and you should simply and only thank if it will ever get any updates! Had ever anyone updated your older windows xp pc to win7 or 8 or whatever else for free? A Company has to invest huge amount of money to update old products for nothing, so say thank for the update and if you want any new software you probably need to buy a new phone!

    “from the end of May” he he. Seems unfathomable to me how Sony came up with a release schedule that put their last flagship device at the end of the queue. But you have to hope they know what they are doing. I just know I won’t be coming along for the ride next year when I buy my next flagship smartphone.

    They will deliver the update and most will probably receive it in June. But I think it’s impossible the update will be so spectacularly good that many people will forgive them for this mess.

  • Paul

    That is the totally wrong approach. You need to break the heads of the decision makers in the company who think 2-5 people in the software department are enough and make these work like 80 hours a week.

    I only pity their software team, and i don’t mean in a mean but compassionate way. Those good people are getting shafted the same way we get shafted.

  • Paul

    I’m with you. I mostly bought the Ray for it’s design. And then for the Sony’s UI, which i think is the best of all OEMs.
    I was hearing about X8 and X10 disasters, got the phone anyway. It is beautiful and i haven’t seen any phone yet on the market that got close to that small size but still having good tech (for it’s time, back then).
    I only had little hope that 2011 line would be treated better, that was wrong.
    I gave up hope completely and since then, i’m pretty contend with my Ray (with GB).

    Sony was “make.fail” and will continue to do so for as long as people keep buying their phones. Only when people stop doing that, Sony will change, not sooner.

    At least you should give to us the 4.2 JB. That would be less disapointed. But ok. I tried with X10. Didnt learned my lesson. Tried AGAIN with S hoping that you would’ve changed your politics. THANK GOD I didnt buy the Z cuz I’m quite sure that all of you will feel the same when the time to update to 5.0 come.

  • Arokhantos

    doubt sony is this stupid tbh, i think its more likely that they keep wasting time compiling and finding stuff that don’t work or are very buggy, having no idea how to set stuff like memory management right, which causes stuff to crash like 3G wifi bluetooth camera etc which then leads to camera bug 3G bug bluetooth bug etc etc.

    They need to really just fix their memory management in such way that app or tablet never being choked down due not enough ram.
    Heck i think lot stuff could be done through background cache and still be fast enough while some tasks that require be instant use’s ram.

    Like animations programs, video’s don’t need to be loaded into ram can just be put in temporary internet data cache whatever.

    Maybe they should experiment little to see what runs fast and fine also with just background cache and what really benefits out of using ram.

    I think the way the setup memory management is that everything gets loaded into it, and everything becomes a memory hog.

    I also think for some devices they could focus little less on batery, like xperia tablet s can handle 12 hours screen time avg use easy, while now its much more.
    Only reason that is because broken wifi if their activity wifi just get shutdown anyway when hit power button instead of only turning of screen and triggering sleep 10 mins later after its not been used.

    Sony programs everything to tightly and non logical.
    I think logic is probably missing in their code.

    Btw i’m no programmer but i can tell that if hit power button sleep should’t be triggered which disables wifi, when i turn of screen on my 45€ alcatel for example wifi just stay on for few mins untill not being used, then my smartphone is put in sleep mode.

    Anyway speaking off xperia tablet s as an example, but many sony devices all have same issues, because their is only 1 team working with android updates.

    If its also true that sony does lot for open source world then i think its time sony do the same for us paying customers, perhaps they should ask help more from community, afterall community is what made sony big. And the community is what can make sony small again.

    Anyway i think fixing bugs has highest priority along with faster updates in between big updates that actualy fix stuff.
    and not wait like 7 month’s untill stuff get fixed 1 month oke 2 month’s :( 3 month’s with bugs /rage face 4 month’s bugs /cry 5 month’s :| time to buy new non sony android device.

    Maybe the rest of the team went and work on PS4…

    Wifi off when screen is sleep?
    Have you check the Advance WiFi setting menu? I don’t have XTablet S so it might be different from phone but i never have wifi off on power button unless i selected it to do.

  • Arokhantos

    Thats very likely, considering they have something planned asswell regarding their smartphones and tablets on ps4.
    But i think some people being pulled back to work on android atm.
    due amount ranting on their facebook and forums, perhaps petition did help already in some way.

    Anyway if sony is lucky android 5.0 is only gonna run on quadcore devices atm its just rumour, but count how many quadcore devices sony has currently.

    Sony should’t release much more quadcore devices not to much least keep it at minimum and sony will probably be first with 5.0 asuming they done in time with jelly bean least.

    anyway i’m doubting if i buy xperia z or htc one, my main issue ignoring software issues is that battery is awfull, and the fear due my curse.
    I probably have spontanous shattered glass in month or right away when buy xperia z.

    I don’t really care about a water proof gimick either, preffer metalic look from htc one also.

    Software wise i’m more worried about bugs then if 5.0 will hit xperia z at all.

  • Dmitry Perets

    … And they will keep crying on another forum, with exactly same level of attitude from their new “favourite” manufacturer :-)

  • https://twitter.com/rgxVOiD naathaanS

    Didn’t they also said long ago that they’re in the Glass Project?

    My Z battery is fine, enough for a day at medium use with Stamina mode on of course, it’s quite surprising that a software that only turns app off helps a lot.
    TBH about the glass on Z, HTC One wouldn’t survive well with the aluminium as well, dent, etc. Z have some chances of surviving with its frame. But don’t forget, you can get a case for both of them

  • Arokhantos

    xperia z used have good stamina mode but that got bugged i believe, not sure if that got fixed yet least don’t think it is yet cous i read sony mobile facebook quite lot.
    12 hours with how long screentime ?
    anyway i’m not worried about dropping my phone, just worried about spontanous glass shattering while its in my jacket for example

  • https://twitter.com/rgxVOiD naathaanS

    My stamina works fine after .434 update.
    Since i stayed home today, the battery is longer that it usually is, i’ll check it out tomorrow. I don’t keep a track on the battery usage that much

    man man man… I bought that XS a year ago, one month ago i bought XZ. Why the fuck did i do that ? They will do the same shit with XZ.. Eh, wait.. They already did it. “4.2 JB will arrive very soon after release”
    Sure..

    look at Samsung, even the Galaxy S2 got JB. I don’t like that Samsung phones but, they have the best update politics beside nexus devices. Now compare Sony.
    I bought my XS with LOVE, now i want to throw it through my window. I don’t use it anymore.

    XS is the biggest fail i’ve ever made.
    – Gingerbread at Release
    – Yellow tint at display
    – shitty laggy UI
    – a back cover, to put just a fu.. SIM ?

    There is only one thing that’s really awesome at the XS, the camera, but that was all!

    The XS and the XZ are my last Sony phones.

  • roeshak

    The Xperia S has officially taken the title of worst supported Sony/ SonyEricsson phone from the X10.
    Such a raw deal. I decided long ago to move away from it this year and ended up with the Z.
    For those who’ve stayed with it, it’s been one kick in the teeth after another.
    There’s something about that phone that Sony hasn’t come clean about. There must be a reason why they have stayed clear of developing software for it and prioritizing other devices.
    Could it be that it and the ion are the two phones ofthe lot that have the most input from Ericsson? So theyspend more time on the devices which they mostlycontrolled. Who knows. I’ve j just given up trying to work it out. All in all, it’s a damn shame!

  • Dace

    Sony have good hardware but lame software. However, the good people at Free Xperia Project have brought us CyanogenMod 10 Jelly Bean so you don’t have to wait for official updates. I’ve been using it for the last few months and there’s no way I’d go back to Stock. Sure, the update might also remove the chronic lag but it’s likely to be loaded with lots of lag-causing unnecessary apps anyway. FXP update weekly, not yearly like Sony.

  • Arokhantos

    yeah very likely but 5.0 probably only gonna be for quadcore devices probably.

    think 4.1.1 is end of life for xperia tablet s also, not even jelly bean features their all missing just ICS skin on top of jelly bean stripped of jelly bean features.

    When i ask them on sony forum they delete the thread, sony is quite shameless……..

  • Arokhantos

    oh well think i’m 99.99% sure now not to buy xperia z or any other sony android device anymore, i ask them if they do polished update with missing features that been stripped off they just deleted the thread.
    Dang my tablet will be one expansive remote soon, tough htc one has IR blaster to.

    Think i turn my xperia tablet into a wall clock…… like this.

  • megae

    Too late for me :-( Already got a ZL

  • Arokhantos

    tablet s1 has been with random shutdowns masive bugs since launch as far if read, then the ics update made it worse.
    Atm it does look like sony is taking xperia Z serious tough random shutdowns got fixed within few day’s not month’s.
    Their bugs but they don’t compare i believe to the bugs that xperia s has or other older smartphones.

  • http://www.facebook.com/musikamaru Jhonbert Magana

  • rus_media

    No. I think the main reason is, XS is the best selling product of Xperia series. So many users are on it. And Z & ZL couldn’t make the half of it. Sony wants them to jump on the new phones. And they are wrong. By the way, after going back to Japan, they are in lack of good interpreter of English ;)

  • Shai Nagy

    Guys!
    Sony’s sailing strategy is brilliant but selfish and sad:
    They want all the xperia s owners will move to xperia z,
    because they want to promote this product and ern more mony from you like every business,
    they will update xperia s only for the stubborn xperia s users when they have no chois,It is sad but this is the bitter true,and because the xperia s going to be very similar to the xperia z after the update they want to extract the maximum from xperia zmarketing.
    so be patient and be strong.

    best regards!

    Sony has made another ass. trivially

    threw the flagships of the past owners

    year. Happy for all the owners who

    waited for updates, but I do

    decided that the xperia S is my last phone from

    Sony. I do not accept that giving Sony

    large sum of money, I do not get

    The job support. I will continue to

    buy products Google. the benefit of their

    Nexus gaining momentum and get

    decent support ahead of the

  • Alessandro

    Hello!

    First of all, I’m from Brazil and I’m using Google Translator to translate this comment, so sorry for any grammar error. I would like to share with you my complete outrage with Sony Mobile

    I am a frustrated user of Xperia S and my brother owns a Xperia P. As you already know

    Jellybean for the Xperia P had been released a few weeks ago, however the Sony Mobile Brazil has no release date here in JellyBean. If I had not unlocked

    my bootloader Xperia S would still be in 4.0.4 build .45 which was a totally bugged version

    and had an issue where I was having my battery drained about 20% every night. It was then that my bootloader unlocked and upgraded it to build my .55 and all these problems are gone. However I am angry at the delay in the launch of the Sony Xperia S to 4.1, as it can take over a year to launch and deceive your users this way. You still have hope to see the release at the beginning, in Brazil we’ll have to wait many months after the official release to receive the update, as well as the users of Xperia P here in Brazil are still waiting for JellyBean. My angst to so much because you have no idea what things cost here in Brazil, in Brazil, the Xperia S is still costing around R $ 1,300 would be equivalent to U.S. $ 650.00, is absurd. Xperia XQ launched in Brazil costing R $ 2,050 which is equivalent to U.S. $ 1,025. Total nonsense, paid dearly for not having any benefit or service from Sony, Sony is able to delay more than a year to release an update for a phone that was until then the top line. I believe that Sony does this believing that their clients owned a Xperia Xperia S will buy a Z, ZL, ZQ. But with such a service think Sony is completely wrong in its market strategy. We Sony customers are completely dissatisfied and can not stand to wait and be treated this way by Sony.

    Not to stop here, I say that I also have an old Xperia Play and I’ve been fooled again by believing that Sony would get Android 4.0, not counting the times when shooting photos with the Xperia Play only increases my anger, because sometimes I have the impression that the photos taken with my play is better than the photos full of noise taken by my Xperia S. : (
