    Acro S running on Qualcomm’s S3 chipset. Qualcomm stopped providing drivers to S3 chipsets for future updates. So Sony is helpless to provide the users any os updates. So blame Qualcomm, not Sony.

    My Xperia Z1 (C6943) didn’t got it.I have 5.2.A.1.22.

  • Guest

    never heard of that model number for Z1…

  • Legolas

    which country?
    why dont you try installing manually dowloading from links given?

  • Himanshu

    Then SONY should take back xperia S from the customers and replace the chipset…. It’s SONY’S fault, that they used an older chipset for flagship device, when better versions were available..

  • Prasanth Namboothiri

    lol thats such a stupidity. if so then Sony need not Sony only but also all brands need to replace the chipsets time to time whenever the chipset manufacturers stop providing drivers. then whats the point on realising New handsets lol

  • Nikolai ivanov

    sony forget about 4,3 update ??????????

  • ????? ???? ?? ?????, ??? ?????? :)

  • Rafael Hipólito

    Brazil. My update center never showed an update. The phone came with 14.1.G.1.534, updated to 14.1.G.2.257 and 14.2.A.0.290 using PC Companion.

    Walkman… Info-eye…Album…Movies… No updates for C6943 : (

  • Rafael Hipólito

    C6943 It’s almost the same as C6903, but it is sold only in Brazilian Market, it have Digital Television.

    What the hell is this particularly with Sony! Why are they not rolling out update 4.3 for Xperia Z?? They are only focusing upon Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z ultra. Fuck this Sony.

  • xperia ZL

    They could not come up with 4.3 on other Z series devices before Christmas so this is what we got.

  • Chris

    Updated in China, but Play Memories disappeared

  • RHBH

    I felt the same thing when I had only my Xperia S and Sony was releasing updates only for Z, ZL, ZR…

  • Chris

    hahahaha…..what an idiot

  • zairolafzal zainal

    The movie apps need to be fix. Having issue to play movie and getting blank display. Reading movie from sd card very slow and sometimes the device hang and need to force reboot. Ita also not refreshing data after deleting some movie need to manually clear data to remove it. Already trying 2 different region firmware end up with a same problem in movie apps.hope will getting update fixing the problem.

    Although Sony cannot upgrade Xperia S to Android 4.3 or above, they can roll out new Album, Movies etc. apps for the user.

    Those apps are not necessarily compatible with the higher Android version.

    Also, DON’T mix the app upgrade with Android upgrade and say something about Qualcomm and Sony. ANDROID UPGRADE AND APP UPDATE ARE TWO SEPARATE THINGS, and Sony can still support Xperia S in terms of the latter. The fact is that Sony can do more on Xperia S. I have already explained that they did not well in the beginning, especially compared with the support with Xperia P (just better when they roll out .96) because Xperia P always have the new function and improvements before Xperia S until Xperia S has Android 4.1.
