Sony though simply messed up both android 4.1.2 jelly bean firmware updates 6.2.B.0.200 and 6.2.B.0.211 for Xperia S and SL yet there are so many good things about it also. Sony missed a lot many features which should have been their in both jelly bean updates for Xperia S and SL as what users were expecting that they may get the same UI of Xperia Z.

Well in android 4.2.2 jelly bean 10.3A.0.423 firmware update of Xperia Z and ZL many new features were seen, one was “Speed Dial” options in call settings. Speed Dial is so cool 😛 Today we have brought you the tutorial to port it on our beloved Xperia S and Xperia SL.
