me too Angry FaceSlightly frowning Face

 

I'm also still experiencing several serious bugs in Android 4.3 for Xperia V:

 

1. Touch screen sometimes doesn't work on incoming calls. It only occurs when phone is receiving a callin the pocket. Screen switches on inside the pocket and somehow reacts on its surface, and after pulling phone out it can't recognize fingers any more. If I will switch off screen again for several seconds during this incoming call by pressing the power button and then press it again to turn it on - there will be a big chance that the touchscreen will work again and I will be able to answer the call. This is the most annoing bug! Maybe this will help Sony to fix it. often i can't answer calls

 

2. Autofocus sound on recorded videos.

 

3. GPS is working much worse in 4.3 than on Android 4.0 and 4.1 firmware for Xperia V. Looks like the receiving signal level from satellites is much lower on this firmware. Phone loses GPS signal without any reason. Cold start takes much longer, and actually sometimes will not find my coordinates after 8 hours of seeking under the clear sky if Assisted-GPS (location from Google) is disabled (yeah, 8 hours, tested this with a charger connected). But in Android 4.0 and 4.1 I can use GPS even without any access to internet at all and no A-GPS data stored, in 4.3 I can't. time is so longer

 

4. Screen is flickering in some GPU accelerated applications sometimes. This happens in Google Chrome, some other browsers and games. This looks like a random black lightning crossing the screen for a short period of time.me. Very bad sometimes when show keyboard flickering blue screen Anguished Face

 

All this bugs are still present after flashing the phone with Sony PC Companion in repair mode (with losing data) in 9.2.A.2.5 firmware version

I have additional information about touchscreen bug. When you is putting your phone into the poket - make shure that its screen is turned off (no backlight means touch sensor is also turned off). If you will do otherwise, putting it while phone is locked, but the backlight (and so is touch sensor) is still on - you will have troubles to answer the next call for shure. This is totally a software bug and Sony could fix it.
