Hey guys!
Just wondering, how is sony on upgrading there devices to the newest versions of android? Prolonging the life of my phone is important for me and the longevity of the phone in terms of software updates/ROMS is going to be my deciding factor between the one m8 and the z2 (even though yes, I know, the Z2 has a superior camera but I would like to have the newest versions of android). Im lead to believe that the Z1 has not received a 4.4.2 update from Sony but that there are a small amount of 4.4.2 roms? I also saw that the Z1 has a very very small amount of roms which got me worried about he Z2's development community? Please comment!

Z1 has 4.4.2 now. Z2 comes with it also. However, Sony historically is late with updates.

That actually changed recently. Sony was pretty quick with the updates and some older/low tier devices are also getting updated.
Just take a look at Z1 update history.

How's the development sector though? Is it atleast guaranteed to have roms for the next 3+ android updates?

Sorry I beg to differ that Samsung is fast. Both note 2 and note 3 are still waiting for the KitKat updates. In fact, note 2 only received the 4.3 update end of last year.

Don't let HTC fool you either. They're fast to release their updates lately, but with lots of problems that take several updates to correct (if at all).

At end of day all of them are the same. Some do it fast with problems and some are late.
