Re: Xperia Z1 4.4.4 Update Issues

I bought my xperia z1 on 20th Aug with kitkat 4.4.2 and at first upgraded it to 4.4.4 after inserting SIM. So I didn't use 4.4.2 on z1. Now after 4.4.4 update, I'm finding that the camera looks like 5mp instead of 20.7mp. It producing lot of noise. The camera flash also not so bright. Others issues are the set getting hot in normal use and consuming lot of battery, it lasting for only 7 hours in normal use. I dont Know is that upgrade issues or its phones hardware.
So I called to customer care and they told me that its all because of 4.4.4 upgrade. They ask to wait for next firm update.

Re: Xperia Z1 4.4.4 Update Issues

Main issue with all 20.7 camera phones is the camera itself freezing errors and poor pictures

Z1

When are Sony going to address all these problems with 4.4.4 update.

A bit of communication from Sony would be good!
