Xperia Z1 Compact 4.4 Update Issues

Sony Z1 Compact, Singapore

After the recent software update, I went to Youtube and the sound wasn't playing on its loudspeaker but was playing at the sub-speaker. I tried playing videos and songs from my File Commander, same thing happens.

 

Does anyone here have the same problem as me? How do I solve this?

Hey Mods/Admins,

 

still didn't got any response to my posted bug :/

 

It was about the WLAN traffic indicator, which is locked and always shows the upload arrow even though there isn't any traffic.

Re: Xperia Z1 Compact 4.4 Update Issues

Problems i found in kitkat 4.4.2 update:

 

- camera sometimes takes a long time to load

- when using creative effect camera is very slow and phone becomes hot -closing the camera app opens up web browser

- occasionally certain buttons don't react when pressed in walkman player 

- phone sometimes ramdomly restarts

- videos sometimes wont load in web browser (possably a chrome bug)

- volume sometimes comes out of earpice insted of speaker

- battery life seems slightly shorter than what it was in jellybean

- when answering calls sometimes the sound will automatically come trough speaker instead of earpice

Re: Xperia Z1 Compact 4.4 Update Issues

The only problem I have with kitkat is that the there is a delay in opening the camera app.

 

Other things I encountered were the music going to earpiece (once) and the battery draining faster than before (for about 2 days). I don't have these issues now.

 

The battery has actually improved now and I am happy with it.

Re: Xperia Z1 Compact 4.4 Update Issues

After the latest software update there is some kind of conflict that makes the sound disfunction when using my normal bluetooth headset (JABRA PRO 9400). The headset worked fine for a couple of weeks, but following the last update, the connection (sound) will be unstable after a some time of convervsation (usually 3-5 minutes). The poor connection results in noise (scrambling) and loss of microphone.

 

Strangely, it does not happen when using my other JABRA SUPREME headset.
