    4.4 is welcom on my Z1 but in all honesty the Z1 is snappy enough. Don’t get me wrong i want kitkat for even more oumph, but i sincerely hope that kitkat is also coming to the somewhat older divices or devices with lower specs. That would be an awesome thing for Sony to do. Problem is a company wants to sell and make money. With lower spec

      ( shame there is no modify option here ) but with lower specs you have to buy a new one, or just use custom roms.
