Re: Xperia Tablet Z 4.3 Update Bugs

Calendar app crashes every time you:-

1) Tick or untick to select/deselect device or Google calendar

2) Select Refresh option from menu button

Is it just me, or is everyone else having this issue?

Yes calendar issues happens to me also. I HOPE these errors will be fixed on 4.4, if any.

Re: Xperia Tablet Z 4.3 Update Bugs

Lack of feedback from Sony is very disappointing.

Not as disappointing as the number of fairly fundamental and obvious bugs in the 4.3 update.

Some other vendors respond to forum posts on their own forums by acknowledging that they have replicated a reported  issue and are working on it.

They also publish lists of bugs they have fixed and tested and will include in the next update.

When I reported some of my issues by phone or chat to Sony support, they were unaware of bugs that had already been reported by others.

This suggests they don't monitor the forum.

How many responses from Sony has anyone spotted on this forum?

There was however a post from a moderator telling someone off for using abusive language!

Re: Xperia Tablet Z 4.3 Update Bugs

Guys, I did a second update using the update service SW, and the screen flicker is almost gone. I say almost because it's still there, but happens much less. However, the wifi - bluetooth issue is still there, and they bad battery life is still there too. I am saying bad battery life meaning compared to previous versions of the os on the same tablet.

Re: Xperia Tablet Z 4.3 Update Bugs

I purchased my tab z after a long wait and much research.  Unboxed and installed OTA 4.3 update over dinner.  Sat down to use tab, installed favorite apps.  Noticed *flicker* immediatley with Firefox synced browser and swiftkey keyboard. 

Uninstalled Swiftkey.  Flicker persisted with Sony keyboard and both Google browser and Firefox.

 

Started to work on Amazon return when I decided to search for the *flicker*

 

Is everyone experiencing this or just some?  If it is a hit or miss thing, I will proceed with return...

 

I have not experienced bluetooth/ wifi issues.  No problem streaming from my NAS to UE boombox

4.1 and 4.2 on mine and were working perfectly without any flicker. But 4.3 did. This is a software issue. Hopefully this will get fixed in the next update which is rolled out for some users already since Feb 7th. Its a renewed 4.3 and a bug fixer (bug adder, according to Sony). If I was u I'd return it and get galaxy note 10.1 2014 immediately.

Re: Xperia Tablet Z 4.3 Update Bugs

*grmbl...as you can see from my previous, broken post it's even worse now......I've received the second 4.3 update today = 10.4.1.B.0.101 and the flickering has become even more annoying than before...the keyboard flickers all the time, disappears and reappears...what caused me to incidentally hit the post button in my previous post.
