Re: xperia z1 over heating and battery drain..android 4.4.4

I have the Z1S (tmobile version) and my battery life is terrible(about half) with 4.4.4, im about to downgrade back to 4.3!  Also the memory usage has gotten worse not better and my camera is buggy....

Re: Xperia Z1 4.4.4 Update Issues

Before 4.4.4 mine whould heat up, seemed normal(still does) but my head phone jack acts funny, when I disconnect the jack, it still stays in headphone mode and no sound comes from the loud speaker. And when I close apps and head to my home screen, my icons lag or don't pop up as fast as the previous firmware. I will keep up to date if anything else happens. "note: I have the z1s"

Z1 major phonebook issues after 4.4.4.

Okay, this is really getting out of hand. A week ago I've posted my phonebook issue here:

 

 http://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Xperia-Z1-Z1s/Phone-book-super-slow/m-p/784759#U784759

 

Haven't got any useful help, so the android update notice really cheered me up " maybe this will fix things!".

 

To my huge dissapointment - it hasn't. It made it worse. Now 80% of the time I can't even open my phonebook, not even the dial pad, because as soon as the window opens it closes and I get the following messages: 

"Unfortunately, Contacts has stopped" and then "Unfortunately, the process com.android.phone has stopped

 

I don't even know what to say, this is beyond frustrating. honestly, I don't expect much from my Z1, but when the basic phone functions stop working on an expensive phone like this, I am speechless..

 

I hope you can attend to my issue as soon as possible.

Xperia Z1 camera issue

When i take photos by this z1 camera, it seems color contrast,brightness is perfect, brilliant.  I am amazed seeing picture quality, color contrast, brightness. But when transfer those pictures in my laptop, it seems that those pictures brightness,color contrast is gone. The pictures seems dark.

I didnt apply any effects. I applied manual or supirior focus only.

How can i fix this ?

so that the pictures seem same in color contrast, brightness.I am focusing on image quality basically.

Re: Xperia Z1 4.4.4 Update Issues

I've figured out why my battery life is terrible, it has to do with the screen (doesn't get as dark as it used to) and its eating my battery alive!

 

 

UPDATE: well I just started using it this morning and its only been about 5 min and my battery life dropped from 91% to 87% and I looked into the battery usage app and its saying android OS is eating my battery..... So I'm stumped Cuz my sync is disabled..and never had this problem with 4.3

Re: Xperia Z1 4.4.4 Update Issues

I have to admit that wifi was improved and smoothness was as well, but not by much; and to the cost of my battery, no thanks....im about to root my stuff and remove the update center so im no longer pestered by the OTA update....seriously sony? get your stuff right...before you push an update, and being stuck on Tmo we most like wont see an update to fix the "fix" for at least 3-6months -.-

Re: camera problem

Same here. Just switch the phone off and on and this should get it to work for a while. I reported the issue to Sony, as both my Z1's do this and was told it is a known issue and will be fixed in the next update.
