Hi there!

I recently bought an Xperia SP and had it unlocked fully so now i can use any SIM.

But it seems that there is a problem: my phone is slow. I only have a handful of apps installed, nothing is programmed or working in the background or Sync is turned off.

I checked the OS and it is still stuck to Android 4.1.2 but the official Sony Mobile website says the latest is 4.3.

Is there an app to help speed up my phone?

Why is my phone not detecting the 4.3 update?

Please advice. Thanks.

Search google for Sony XPERIA SP C5303 - Android 4.3 - firmware 12.1.A.0.266. The site is called xperia firmware (i would post the link but im not allowed. Once the phone is updated you may need to restart the phone like i did to get up to speed (mine was incredibly slow after first boot)

The Xperia SP originally came with android 4.1.2, not Android 4.0.x

Maybe just reflash the firmware and see if it gets better (4.1.2, as 4.3 has a big chance of bad RAM management)

Regardless of "conflicting" information from either "reliable" sources or Sony Mobile the update is very slow in appearing.
