As we recently reported, the latest versions of Google’s current Android platform, 4.x – which is any version of Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean – has finally surpassed Gingerbread with number of users. The slow roll out and dispersion can be to blamed, though that’s not entirely Google’s fault; the mobile carrier’s and phone manufacturers also play a role.
Today, AT&T announced that it is continuing the Jelly Bean roll out, extending the option to update to the latest version of Android to its Sony Xperia TL and with it, users will see a number of improvements on their device, including:
- Improved photography: When users have their phones set to Superior Auto mode, enhancements have been made so that the camera is even better at automatically adjusting its settings. Plus, the phone was given new HDR capabilities, which means that the camera will actually take three different photos, each in a different light setting, and then combine all three into a single photo, resulting in optimum quality.
- Data usage calculator: This is great for anyone who has a habit of going over their monthly data limit. They will now be able to set a cap on the amount of data they’re able to use each month and cut back on those hefty overage charges.
- SMS MMS notification display: Now, going forward, the full text in an SMS and any photo attached in an MMS will display in full in the phone’s notification window.
Be on the lookout for the update to be released on your phone. Since we haven’t had a chance to try it out in person just yet, if you have, we’d love for you to let us know how you like it. Just let us know by commenting below.
