Can't say for sure, but it probably has the same as any Android 4.2.2 update: lockscreen widgets, gesture keyboard, Photospheres, a new clock app, notification quick settings toggles,

Probably because Samsung hates you? Sorry, I don't know.

4.2.2 Doesn't make up for the fact that the CPU will be two generations behind once the LG G2 comes out next month. Sony really needs to time their flagship releases better. I would have gotten an Xperia S if it didn't have an S3 when everyone had an S4.

And I might have gotten a Z if the screen didn't suck and it had a S600.

It's a make-up update folks...

So buyers will never feel sorry because they bought a premium priced handset with a crappy screen and semi-outdated hardware

Good Job SONY

crappy screen and semi outdated specs??? tell that to someone who owns a galaxy s4 which takes around 5 minutes to load applications after every reboot and from time to time starts lagging like hell even after having a octacore cpu...
