    Lol no Sony Xperia S? Their flagship for last year? As always, this is what you get from Sony. Unlike Samsung, they always treat their customers right. My Galaxy S3 from last year is now happy with Android 4.3.

      Dual core ang xperia s plus lumang chipset din un, tanungin mo nga ang samsung ace 2 or ace 3 kung makakarating din ba sa 4.3.

      Ganyan kadami ang mauupdate ng sony while ung pinagyayabang mong samsung, ano lang S3, S4, Note 2 and 3 lang. Pano na yung mga grand at mega??

    • setsuna says:

      it not really sony’s fault. Qualcomm stopped the support of the S3 chip already. And besides, the xperia s is already out of the 18 month support.

    • Yusuf says:

      The chip doesn’t matter. The Xperia S was their first flagship of 2012, the Galaxy Mega (5.8 and 6.3) aren’t.

    • setsuna says:

      yes it does matter. qualcomm stopped releasing drivers for the S3 chip. without the drivers Sony can’t do anything about that. the Galaxy Mega 6.3 uses a snapdragon 400 chipset while the 5.8 uses a relatively new braodcom chip. it’s not only the xperia s that doesn’t get support all smartphones using the snapdragon S3 chip is out of luck. If you want to get drivers for it, go and try to convince qualcomm. And like i said, being a flagship isn’t going to do anything because the xperia s is already out of the 18 month support that manufacturers have (not only sony).

    Bakit po kaya hindi kasama ang mga dual core/midrange phones ng SONY? Diba ang goal nga po ng 4.4 kitkat ma update kahit yung mga phones from 2.something gingerbread at yung mga phones with 512mb RAM? Eh halos 1Gig RAM na lahat nung mga midrange ng SONY diba?

    • setsuna says:

      ang nakasulat para sa 4.4 ay ung first batch. “We’re also happy to tell you about the FIRST raft of Xperia products that we’ll make Android 4.4 Kit Kat” basa basa din pag may time :)
