  1. Unlike Xperia S update to ICS, Xperia P update doesn’t have much issues.
    Lil Issues that was observed in last few days after my udpate:
    1. Picture zoom is not smooth
    2. xloud feature makes me go crazy, I can hear cracking sounds. Had to disable this feature
    and few intermitent issues.
    But worth updating. I’m enjoying my ICS in XP.
