sony experia z review 37 640x426You can more or less observe that different hardware manufacturers have varying levels of “friendliness” when it comes to implementing third party code, and Sony is one such company who seem to be friendlier than normal, as Sony has also backed AOSP (Android Open Source Projects in full) efforts even when they were the ones who had to shoulder majority of the responsibilities.

Hence, it does not come across as a surprise to us to hear that the Sony Xperia Z as well as Xperia ZL are the more recently introduced smartphones from the company to be on the receiving end of nightly CyanogenMod 10.1 builds. Of course, it goes without saying that nightly builds of custom OS code tend to be risky since you can never quite tell whether Murphy is going to strike or not, but for folks who lack the patience for Sony to officially roll out a safe Android 4.2 Jelly Bean release, this is an alternative for you to fall back upon. Check out our Sony Xperia Z review here.
