Sony Xperia users rejoice, Santa has come early this year and he’s packing Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. The Android OS has begun rolling out to the Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR and the Xperia Tablet Z.

If you own any of these devices you can now perform a software update, or will be able to soon as it rolls out. This means all the benefits of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean plus Sony’s SmartSocial Camera and Sony’s many apps. These include Messaging, MyXperia, Smart Connect, Small apps, TrackID, Sony Select and its suite of media apps.

Sony’s Battery Stamina Mode has been updated with a refreshed interface and more options for prolonging your device’s battery life. A Restricted Profiles option has been added to the Xperia Tablet Z so separate users can have their own isolated, secure space with individual storage, home screen, widgets and settings.

This update comes to these Xperia devices after the Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z Ultra received the Jelly Bean make-over last week. Sony says the remaining devices that don’t yet have it will get it soon. - PAY MONTHLY PHONES The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is now available on EE who have been awarded the UK’s best network for the fifth year running. RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
