PROBLEMS / CHANGELOG / REVIEW Xperia S LT26i /SL/Acro S Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.211 firmware
All regions have not been hit by the android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.211 firmware update yet, so no exact changelog is available now. We will post the review as soon as we update our phone and all the bugs which are expected to be fixed in this update. First reboot is taking very long time now.

- Same 685 MB RAM as it was in 6.2.B.0.200 firmware.
- Wi-Fi bug fixed, connecting very fast now
- 1080P HD video recording still lags.
- NO HDR mode in camera settings.

Basically what users are now reporting that, SONY has not fixed any bugs except for that Wi-Fi issue and GPS. All bugs ares till present in this update. :/ We are checking the battery drain issue now and Wi-Fi also again. If to sum up Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.211 firmware update only FIXED Wi-Fi bug, nothing more, every bug from Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware is still present, overall it’s again a disappointing update from Sony
