I currently use a Nexus 5 as a daily driver with my standard SIM. Recently I got an extra SIM from my mobile provider with additional 2GB of data, and seeing a need for a spare phone in case of a bad bay as well as maximising the extra data, thought of getting a Xperia T
I am able to get a set in very good condition, with full box and accessories at US$145. However, I would like to have some feedback on the community regarding the support and for lack of better word, "sustainability" of this device.
Mainly, I would like to know if there are any major bugs with no solution in sight in the custom ROMs, I don't wish to see the situation in the Tegra 3 devices where the lack of source code or reference causes ROM development to stall and remain stagnant.
Also, is there at least a few developers who are actively maintaining this device? No one likes a unsupported device after all.
Lastly, is the MSM8960 Snapdragon S4 still a decent chip with good source code such that it can still run ROMs into the future.
I understand that Xperia T won't get official KitKat, but as there will be other S4 powered devices that get, ROMs will eventually develop and become stable enough
Hope to get some insight and opinion in this community, thanks for reading
