upcoming sony phones 2013

It's not the top of the Xperia tree, but the -sony-phones-2013 Xperia XP makes a good impression as a more than capable midrange Android with some nifty features.

As the name suggests, Sony has more or less combined the best bits of the Xperia S and the Xperia P to produce the SP (see what they did there?). The SP comes in below the Xperia Z in Sony's current canon, with reduced specs in almost every area, though it makes a pretty good impression with what it has.

Why Facebook Home fail at Android Device?

I think Facebook Home is failed. As it only get 1 million downloads since launching a month ago.
I saw a news which said why Facebook Home failed is because Facebook's iPhone culture builds an overzealous home on android. Which means Facebook Home's employeers don't completely understand Android system. They don't know what android users need and want. The iphone users don't feel any wrongs about the Facebook Home.

Nexus 4 Vs. CAT B15

I currently have the Nexus 4 on T-Mobile and I am generally pretty satisfied with the Nexus 4. However, I do some fairly risky activities as far as cell phones go. For example, I love to go horseback riding and ATVing. I do have a Ballistic case, do I still worry. Thus, I am consdiering handing down the Nexus 4 to my wife or oldest son and switching to a CAT B15. I am just wondering what I will lose by switching. Will apps be slower to load due to a slower processor? Will I still get HSPA+ or would I only get 3G or3G on T-Mobile? » »

Jellybean Update recommended for G S II

For those out there who have a Samsung Galaxy S II do you recommend doing the update to the latest Android OS? Awhile back several in this and other PS forums advised against my doing the upgrade because of crashing issues but my phone is starting to act really funky on 2.3.6 and the T-Mobile rep said I really need to do the upgrade. Thoughts? Recommendations? Suggestions?

Also, does anyone know if have a security program installed (i.e., Bitdefender, Lookout, etc.,) causes a problem and should be uninstalled before attempting the upgrade?

Finally, in general how long does the upgrade take via Kies?
