Well why don't you root it and enjoy 4.2.2, instead of relying, waiting for Sony or carriers to update to JB4.2.2!

of course they won't mention the improvement in camera quality. Phonearenna and pocketnow are two of the biggest Sony haters out there. Well they failed because the phone's a smash hit. Shows how little influence these jokers have on consumers.
The update tackles a lot of the issues the Zs had particularly the camera problems.
I say they were focusing issues but others say it's image processing. Which ever, the issues have been largely addressed with this update. I'm sure the new camera software coming with 4.2.2 will improve it even more making it the best camera smartphone available.
Phonearenna and others who backed the flopping htc one, it'll be so entertaining to watch them eat humble pie this year. With the coming tsunami that is Honami, it gets better for Sony and worse for their haters
