    I purchased an Xperia Z1 in November, which was just released in September. Instead of focusing on software updates to secure customer loyalty (not to have the feeling of neglect), they just opted to release new hardwares!
    I swear to the heavens above that I will never, ever, ever, ever buy any Sony phones, ever! Sana LG G2 na lang ang binili ko huhuhu
    This stupid phone is still running Android 4.3 when my wife’s already dated Samsung S4 is already on 4.4.2!!!

      First world problems…tsk…tsk…

    • NickT says:

      Cool lang kayo. Hindi naman 1000 pesos lang binayad ko dito para maging masaya ako sa outdated na software. Kaya ako bumili ng high end na phone dahil sa support. To each his own, ika nga.

      Nick Frost – how about galaxy note 3? Naka kitkat 4.4.2 na din, kakalabas din lang nun di ba?

    • neko says:

      can’t believe you bought the z1 despite all the negative things said about it. guess that’s what being an irrational fan brings you.

      obvious naman ang display inferior. ayon sa reviews and 3000mah does not deliver what’s expected of it.

      lg g2 was way better and even cheaper. the z1 camera advantage is very minimal.

      kulang lang sa research.

    • NickT says:

      @Neko – Trust me, nagbasa at nanood ako ng sobrang daming reviews (endgadget, the verge, etc.)pero dinisregard ko na lang talaga yun negative points kasi gustong gusto ko na ng bagong phone kasi sawa na sa Samsung at Apple. Pinagpilian ko pa ito between LG G2 at Nexus 5. Big mistake!
      Ok, not to be totally unfair to Sony, mabilis yun processor nya na Snapdragon 800 at maganda yun feel ng phone. Very sturdy.
      Yun camera naman, mediocre ang result at yun UI, boring. Battery not that good. Madaling magasgas yun screen.

    • NickT says:

      Neko – by the way, you shouldn’t irrationally call someone you don’t know an irrational fan just because they purchased something you don’t like.

    • Critic says:

      If you’re that conscious in always getting the latest software update
      s, the nexus line would have been your best choice. Otherwise, you’ll be tied up with the software update waiting game from each manufacturers every time there’s a new release. Don’t stop enjoying phone, it is still a great device. :)

    • MrPhabletBulacan says:

      Masyado sir matindi expectations mo. Lupet na ng telepono mo hinahanapan mo pa. Tama sabi nila, kung software update habol mo sana Nexus o Iphone binili mo. Magkakaroon din naman yan ng 4.4 kitkat in few weeks time pero di ka makahintay atungal ka na agad dyan nagbabanta ka pa na di ka na bibili ng sony phones na parang bata. At dito sa internet masasabihan ka talaga ng kung ano ano depende sa asal mo. Pinakaminam ay be thankful dahil you have a nice phone that most of us cannot afford. Ako nga gusto ko ng Z2 pero budget ko pang M2 lang so baka mangutang pa ako para lang makabili ng at least T2 Ultra. At buti pala di LG G2 binili mo kasi mas mabagal sila maglabas ng software update at kadalasan walang update sa mga LG phones. Sony at least kahit once or twice meron within 2 years of the launch of the device. At sinusubukan pa nila sumabay ngayon sa iba tulad ng samsung on time na ang OS version sa release ng phone.

    • Paul says:

      Do you really want to upgrade to 4.4? Andami kayang problema sa SD cards ng kit kat.

    • NickT says:

      @MrPhabletBulacan – hahaha natawa ako sa comment mo. Para nga naman akong bata. Pero di ba kapag nga nagbayad ka ng mahal, premium dapat yun service? At di naman ako nagbabanta sa Sony, talagang di na ako bibili kasi di talaga sya ganun kaganda kung icocompare mo sa presyo nya. Maganda pa nga yun Samsung Note 1 ko dito, walang biro. Umaasa lang siguro ako na magbabago ang UI at User experience kung ma-update.

    • Charles says:

      The updates rarely make anything groundbreaking. Don’t expect too much. And sino ba nagsabi na hindi na supported ang Z1? Sony regularly delivers updates OTA.

      And if you’ve actually read about Sony, they release flagships Biannually. I think you know what that means.

  2. Nick Frost says:

    NICK KELAN BA LUMABAS YANG S4 na yang para icompre mo sa release date ng kitkat para sa z1 mo? kalma lng at maghintay by april siguro naka kitkat na tau

  3. Aqua says:

    Is the T2 ultra single or dual sim?

    • MrPhabletBulacan says:

      18999 is SRP for the single sim LTE model. Wala pa announcement ng price para sa dual sim version (rumor is dual sim version is 3g only). At kung pagbabasehan ang leaks sa india mukhang 20k+ yung dual sim…

    Relax guys. Kung software update ang problema, dapat ngayon alam niyo na dapat na nexus lines lang ang sure na updated ang software for android. Unless marunong kayong magroot at magflash ng cm os. Sa panahon ngayon, dont trust the spec sheet or the expert reviews that much. Mas kapanipaniwala ang user reviews. Also find some time to play with the demo unit first. And avoid blaming anyone for actions you made yourselves

  5. MrPhabletBulacan says:

    Ang nagtataka ako sa mga article na tulad nito ay bakit nila sinasabing LAUNCHED eh puro April or May 2014 pa magiging available yung latest products ng sony. Nothing is actually launched, this more like ANNOUNCED.
    Wala rin sense gawin basehan yung available na products released weeks ago. Please enlighten me!

    • MrPhabletBulacan says:

      Dahil ba sa letseng xperia e1 launch na ang dapat ilagay sa headline? This gives false hopes for people waiting for the other phone models. Sa unang basa akala mo lahat ng phones na nilabas ay mabibili na agad. Dapat “Sony launches the xperia e1, also announces upcoming new phones, tablet & smartband (z2,m2,t2ultra,z1compact,z2tablet,smartband.”

      Launch = Available

    • Phablet says:

      I think you should check the definition of Launch and Available in the dictionary.

    • akoparinito says:

      English definition of “product launch”
      product launch
      noun [C] MARKETING, COMMERCE
      › the process of introducing a new product for sale for the first time and attracting people’s attention to it:
      An important aspect of managing a product launch is tracking early sales.
      a product launch plan/strategy
      › the time when a new product is introduced for sale the first time, or an event arranged to attract attention to this:
      We will advertise on TV for a month before the product launch.
      500 guests attended the product launch.

      Gawin ba ako bobo maryosep! Ayan dictionary na mismo nagsabi LAUNCH = Pwede na bumili. Cocomment comment pa sablay din naman…

    • AkiMe says:

      Magkaiba po ang measning ng “Launch” sa “Release”
      (e.g. Launch date is March; Release date is on April) n_n

  6. Critic says:

    I think they use “release” for the actual availability of the device and “launch” for the introduction only. The caveat for the “release” is there’s a different local and foreign release dates. So don’t be surprised if you’ll be misinformed as well with articles that pertains to a foreign release instead of local release :).

    But wait there’s more. The best part is when they use the word “official” and associate it with a “rumor” info. #chaos

      kung ganyang tanggap na sa lipunan ang mga maling bagay di malabo magkatotoo ang pelikulang IDIOCRACY

      Battle of the brainless…

      Kahit mali basta tanggap ng karamihan pwede na gawin tama?

    Dude, where are you coming from? You’re out of context.
