I find this pretty sad as Sony phones are my favourite 😔 I know that a lot of them on stock firmware have a lot of bugs, and are sometimes fixed but then lead to more which they are then forgotten about as Sony focus on new devices and what not, this frustrates me as the Xperia S on JB 4.1.2 stock still has a few bugs. I understand the phone is old but we pay money for the device and like most things you buy you are often provided support of some sort. I hope my next Sony phone isnt like this, if it is then I guess I will resort to a 90's phone lol.

I already know that my phone (Xperia S) is abandoned but it's not change my mind to keep use Sony Xperia Phone and From I keep following the news, Sony do better to keep their phone update. There are more patches than in the past.

You guys shouldn't really blame Sony, it's qualcomm that drops upgrades to its chipsets. Sony Just goes with the flow I guess.

C'mon guys, stop blaming Sony for this. Look at it this way: Galaxy Nexus inspite of being supported directly by Google saw only 2 versions of Android (ICS + JB ) while we saw 3 (GB + ICS + JB ). Plus Qualcomm never supported our chipset beyond 4.1 so Sony cannot do anything. AND the last firmware we got was stable and bug free.
So if you want latest Sony goodies, flash eXistenZ and if you want the latest Android, there are a lot of options for that too.
To put it in a nutshell, stop pretending as if Sony cheated us. We did get support for 18 months as promised. And use XDA to get the most out of your device.
Peace

Not to argue with you about the support Sony has given us, but I don't think the comparison with the Galaxy Nexus is a good one. You say that phone got 2 Android versions, but 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3 aren't really the same are they . That makes 4, not 2, which is more than u, but we got a much more classy phone .
My current devices:
Sony Xperia S: Paranoid Android by deedwar
Google Nexus 7 (2013): Paranoid Android

Haha yea you are right too... I say that to myself to feel better
And yes, this phone is much classier. According to me, no device yet has a sexier back than our Nozomi
