    Guys please confirm if the image quality of the SP has improved from the updates. :( still torn between SP and V, or should I just wait for Honami mini? :(

    Sony xperia Honami mini its better

  • Lam_Ang

    The image quality was improved after the update.

  • Pius Ho

    woah woah, hold your horses! You gotta wait for GSMArena to review it first to see if it’s going to be bang for buck! The SP is already amazing for that price already

  • ravi

    wait for honami mini! but it might still be expensive compare to SP and V. up to you how much you want to spend!

  • the_black_dragon

    Just wait for Sony Camera Modules…
    Spend 150$ for the smaller one and you have Picture Quality of a good compact camera if you Need it. Should become compatible to SP and V too

    Buy the ZR. I love it. Very snappy, excellent battery performance, really good camera.

    Hah, no way, the main reason I got the SP was the notification light bar (and that the white covered the front too). So yeah, technically the Honami mini is better, but the SP is unique (only the epic fail 2012 line S, P and U have that (glad I dodged a bullet there), Apple, Samsung, Nokia, LG, no one else has it).
    So maybe IN YOUR OPINION the Honami mini is better (even though its not even released yet…), but in mine, its SP all the way.

    just update the firmware to .245 or .250 … you will see the diffrent between 8mp of exmor r with exmor rs 8mp

  • Andrie Putra

    xperia sp is mid range android phone .. so.. it cant be compare with 8mp camera like samsung galaxy s3 ,iphone 4s/5, nokia lumia 8xx/9xxx ,so camera in sp was improve from exmor r 8mp like arc/arc s , if the sp is the worst 8mp camera …. so be it…

  • qamu74

    Will update?

  • LancerEX

    Hi guys! thanks for the replies! Currently using an Xperia ray, so I guess I more used to smaller phones.

    @andrieputra:disqus, interesting! can you show some pictures? :D

    @DeLorean75:disqus, love that phone but budget is not that much so I had to remove it from my choices. :(

    @the_black_dragon:disqus good point! but I really need a new phone since my ray is not so smooth. and my iPhone 4 is a hand-me-down from my uncle. and buying a camera module would definitely stretch my budget :(

    @bgdkid:disqus yup, but we still have to wait for further announcements first. :)

    @ravikanyal11:disqus, really? I’ve read reports of improved image quality but still no comparison so it’s hard to tell. :/

    @Lam_Ang:disqus, that’s good! has the screen improved too?

    u same with me, last year i want to buy NXT line but when people started to complain about their device i hold my horses and this year i bought my 1st android phone which is Xperia L, in my country Xperia L is cheaper then others neighbor country

  • ass speaks

    my big bro xperia ARC S has better camera than SP.

  • justin

    The image quality of the SP improved in the update. Though image quality of Xperia V is comparable to SP but somewhat better in contrast. Besides the screen contrast of Xperia SP is washed out compared to Xperia V that’s why viewing the image from Xperia SP looks poor.

  • LancerEX

    Yup I’ve seen the comparison between the V and the 2013 series. Sigh. :( But if Sony wouldn’t make a mini version of Z1, I guess I’ll just buy the SP. :)

  • kawya

    is that touch problem still there.
    Or is now fixed
    plz reply i need a phone quickly


  • tk

    When i first got the sp, the illumination used to have a very nice pulsing effect, now it just blinks the middle led except for when the alarm goes of. Wish they bring back the pulsating effect & sort the issues of the led light not working in stamina mode. The led is the main reason i got the sp.

  • Cyrus

    Sony isn’t racist anymore even Cambodia I got this update.this update is not bad no bug at all
