    Nice Sony,now ion jelly bean bug fix please?

    Seriously,Xperia S,SL and acro S may stop whining.but not ion’s user

  • Nuno

    Good to hear that, i am still waiting for the LTE version to be released i have preordered mine for 3 weeks already and still no word on its release date. Looking forward to this phone… has anyone heard about a release date for the LTE versions????

  • Kathryn

    Updated my Acro S. This is so far the most stable firmware which is good enough for me – as long as it is stable for my daily use, I’m okay with it. I am very satisfied now. Hope Ion users will get the update too in the near future.

  • hatch

    Please Sony. What about Xperia V (4.2 or 4.3)

  • M Usman

    Running all this for over a month using eXistenZ_Ultra ROM. Its awesome and works flawlessly. Xreality also works on the z. And superior auto works great. Less image noise. Air effects and new camera features are awesome

  • Nuno

    I am in the US and i preordered my unit already

  • Prateek Bhanushali

    Any difference in BE2 and X-reality ??

  • Prateek Bhanushali

    Can you share some camera samples ??

  • Keon Fraites

    being software dependant I wonder if they’ll put it on the XZ I mean not everyone likes phablets would be nice for it to be on XZ

  • XcDcS

    Seems to be 12th of September for United States, for the LTE version and the same date for Europe =)

  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo

    Really love those white-style UI, hope it will come to Z/ZL

  • ddff

    Xreality screen is more crispier in color than be2

  • shayan gozarabadi

  • XPERIA_Z_ULTRA_FTW

  • Hambeast

  • M Usman

  • nasal

    I read on this blog that the phone heats up too easily with this ROM. True?

  • M Usman

    No that was false information. In fact the phone hardly heats up, even when gaming which is a relief

  • tositem

    Very disappointed with the camera…

  • charmaine6719

  • raj

    The new UI is looking cool

  • Christian

    Can we see a display comparison again with HTC One and Galaxy S4?

  • amit

    Yes…. But I’ve not noticed changes like one sided keyboard

  • amit

    Loved the new UI…. But one sided keyboard feature not available…. Maybe available in next update.

  • Hasnain Maec Abbas

    it is there dont go for the international keyboard go for xperia China keyboard u get that option there

  • jag

    im getting mine next monday (sept. 02).. bwahaha! bundle includes leather case and SBH52

  • Dominic Wong

    I am currently in Taiwan. No updates yet.

  • Dominic Wong

    Where are you located?

  • Nuno

    Which one u getting the c6806 with the usa lte bands or the hspa+ version

  • jag

    im not sure about the bands but it is LTE version. but as they said, the LTE version is compatible with all the working bands there in USA.

    and btw, im from singapore.

  • Nuno

    There are 2 versions of the lte models, both will work in north America and Europe as they will have most of the needed bands for these regions. But will lack minor bands like I want the xperia ZU C6806 which has both bands needed to work on the ATT network the 700 band and the 1700. Eventhtough the 1700 is the most important, the 700 compliments it and the Xperia C6833 European version wont carry it

  • tositem

    Could anyone here tell us where to find the developer options menu? Thanks

  • ddff

    Dubai

  • ddff

  • Kenny L

  • raj

  • Dominic Wong

    How come HK side still no updates?

  • sans

    Whr did u order frm. I m planning to order 1 for myself. I m frm sg

  • jag

    I got mine off contract in sony isetan orchard. I don’t know if the sbh52 is still included if you buy now. You should ask them first. But brother, you should get this beast!! It’s so fast and beautiful!! The screen is so awesome too!! The size is big though you can get a lot of screen from it. I enjoy watching movies with it and playing games like asphalt 8 and others. I don’t mind carrying it around always but i can still put it in my pocket.
