Hi guys, XPERIA SP(lendid) finally received 4.3 JB update

The first question on mind is always WHAT"S FRICKKING NEW ?????

Here is a firsthand experience of the tiniest things in the update - Unofficial changelog

Also i won't be discussing any performance/lag issues - TO EACH HIS OWN!


Ill start with some & maybe you can keep contributing too....Ill keep adding in this list

1. [UPDATE] INTERFACE CHANGE: This is a big improvement from the previous firmware. Apps open and close with a certain "still effect" Font has changed too.

2. [UPDATE] KEYBOARD

3. [NEW] Option to change Themes.

4. [NEW] DAYDREAM : Now, you are given an option to have a slideshow of your saved pics (Camera/Set Favourites) while your Xperia is charging / docked or both. This option is available under Display Settings.

5. [UPDATE] "NoMoreFreeze" : Probably the biggest & much needed update. No more does Xperia SP freeze when kept flat on a surface. Touch responds flawlessly on a flat surface. No More impatience.

6. [UPDATE] LOCKSCREEN : Now, you can set even live wallpapers as wallpaper on lock screen. AMAZINGG!

7.[NEW] TRACK MYXPERIA : No more searching for free apps that track your phone in case you lose it. In this new update, Sony has provided you the option in the Xperia itself. Go to Settings > Xperia > My Xperia & easily setup the service.

8.[NEW] MAGNIFICATION GESTURE : Go to Settings > Accessibility > Magnification gesture : Now you can magnify any part of your screen ; zoom in /zoom out after activating this feature

9. [UPDATE] : Camera got updated and replaced with SMART SOCIAL CAMERA. Some of you earlier issues with Camera Has been Fixed

10. [UPDATE] : Sony Media Apps got updated too - namely WALKMAN, ALBUM & MOVIES
Ill keep adding more.....Many more to come

I just received my Xperia sp a couple days ago which is awesome,but am to yet to update to the latest firmware.But reading your post has gotten me curious has to see what is so special with it,a just might flash it now.Already rooted and install recovery and test a stock based rom,i know that to test other custom Roms i must unlock bootloader which am so ready to do,already got my special key to unlock it,but i think i will try the updated 4.3 first before unlocking.

I am not privy to any changes in bluetooth. What is fundamentally new in BLUETOOTH SMART READY??

Nice to have 4.3, but my SP is laggy and screen often unresponsive...
Using generic ROM (CE version). The UI is nice and also the other refreshments, but the lag and screen issue just killing the good impression...
