I don't know about the z10's camera quality, but the xperia zr that I recommended to you is does better than sp in the camera performance too.

> In reply to Ash62 @ 2014-09-18 07:11 from 2@kL - click to readNeedless to say that since xperia sp is a midranger, and has just 1 GB RAM while running on android 4.3 jelly bean, multitasking is bad and performance will be far worse than what you will be used to after using the z1. Considering the latest 2014 midrangers from sony (m2, t2 ultra, t3, c3) instead of sp is also pointless as, other than running the latest android 4.4 kitkat, their specs are in no way better than sp. The only sony device that is recommendable in the midrange is the xperia zr as it has got the 4.4 kitkat update and it has far better specs than any other sony midranger in the market. Z10 doesn't make sense because a) its not running android (blackberry OS 10 is far from popular); b) the hardware internals are completely outdated (much worse than sp); c) the price is much more than what the phone offers.

Hey guys, I've been using Sony phones from the start, from ericsson range to Xperia S (water damaged beyond repairs) and Xperia Z1 (some dumb F stole it). So now i'm obviously planning on buying a new phone and confused between SONY XSP and Blackberry Z10.
I this time considered Z10 as an option as well as audio quality is no longer what i seek for i'm using a SONY walkman z1050 for that purpose.
So please tell me honestly guys which is better.
Priorities camera performance and web browsing speed.
Any differences in UI?
Being an android user on XPERIA UI for more than 2 years, would it be a downgrade to use Blackberry's UI.

Never had to visit service center LOVE SONY for that.

Thanks

After all, even htc has also been running under loss for quite a while and they are more particular than ever before about updating their phones.

Got some news from GSM arena, it seems that due to a big loss on sony's earning they decided to re-evaluate their strategy on the midrange market, this could be the reason why sony canceled the kitkat update on xpeira SP and other midrange phone as they will be focusing on the high end market.

Memorize this type of attitude, it will help you in recognize them the future and save you a lot of nerves and time. Just so we're all in understanding , this isn't a reply to XperiaSp™, this is a post for all of you out there, to see that there are always mindless fanboys or perhaps company employees undermining customers solidarity.

Here is a timeline of corespondance between XperiaSp™ and myself. If you don't believe the pics, check for yourselves, the posts begin just 3-4 pages behind.

Don't trust fanboys and, more importantly, don't spend your money on cheating companies that openly make false claims for financial gains. If you do, they will only get worse and others will follow then when they see there are no punishment for such behavior. There need to be consequences. DO NOT BUY SONY.

SP has bad camera, I know it, every owner knows it and every single review of the phone confirmes it. Having strong GPU or 4G LTE doesnt replace that.

> In reply to Yelsy @ 2014-09-12 18:09 from pW4B - click to readnow i can't stand your whining and I'm trying to be as kind as possible when responding to others, but with your tone you sounded like you're picking a fight with me and thats fine if you want a fight bring it on cry baby.

FYI. I never change my stance or tune, I maintained my stance on everything that i replied to you. and for your information 'crybaby', I may be a sony fanboy but when they do something not good, i always let others know, for example when sony release the intial 4.3 update which is full of bugs, i commented here that SP is a good phone but the update made the phone slow,unresponsive etc. (if you have been here for a long time you would have seen my comment from 4 months ago and more), at some point i even recommended xperia ZR and moto G. I also provide support to others, answer questions of people asking on this site, for xperia SP, L and C (sSs™). I admit sony has gave me a lot of problems but I don't cry like you, that's our difference. and base on your userID, i can say you're new here, so stop acting like a basher and just accept the fact like a real man.
