I had the same problem, tried everything suggested on this site, multiple hard reset, one SUS update. Even after the SUS update and hard power down the drainage problem persist, so I decided after a clean reboot to check what was eating my battery and I see that google+ was using 11% and the screen 16%, force shut google+ and no more drain problem, hope this help some of you, cause this was the one thing that drove me crazy.

I did a clean SUS install yesterday, but the speaker problem still persists. Yes, allowed it to settle, rebooted after first boot and all that; the first phone call rings as it should. Thereafter, during the second call, the ear speaker starts ringing. So I have to reboot after every call!! Also, the ringtone and notification tones come in broken... Now I have disabled smart connect as somebody had suggested, and keeping my fingers crossed, though I do not have much hope.
What an annoying bug in the software! Quite unprofessional from Sony's end. One would have thought it to be a very minor issue and they would've rectified it immediately. Very surprised to see this thread, which started about two weeks ago and there is absolutely no response from Sony! I wish I had seen this thread before updating!!
BTW, mine is a brand new phone and updated it within days of buying it, now I'm stuck until the good people at Sony wake up. I have always been a Sony user (TVs, Computers and Handphones), this has been the most dissapointing experience.

A very basic workaround for the ear speaker issue. Not a good one, but better than rebooting after every call!
When the ringtones start coming from the speaker (for me, after EVERY call received or made, irrespective whether answered or not), change the volume in sound settings to zero (vibration). Call your phone from another phone, let it vibrate for 2-3 seconds and then disconnect. Go back to the sound settings and drag the volume to the desired level. At this point, for me at least, the sound comes from the external speaker. Now you are good to go and ready for another call!!
Don't know how long I'll have to keep doing this....

Is there any solution for the loss of volume control with BT device? Volume now on full and changing vol slider position has no effect.

Got another new update 4.4.2 Kitkat build 14.3.A.0.757.. I updated it using PC com.. altho got plenty of issues :
The list of issues are as follows :
1. Battery is getting drained very fast.
2. Phone is not getting charged when the phone is on. It displays message "The connected power source is not sufficient. The battery was draining faster than it is charging. Minimize your device usage while charging". Hence, I have to switch off the handset and then keep it for charging.
3. The handset was getting heated up very quickly even with moderate use. I was using Sony Xperia Z1 with 4.3 before this but never faced this level of heating issue
4. User Interface as well as System lags / hangs up..!! Cant even imagine.. Im using sony's flagship..!! LoL..!!
5. The camera application shuts down suddenly after 2-3 mins of usage displaying that camera is not available..
5. Sometimes it even doesn't start and showing that Camera is not responding
If any one is getting same problem then please hit "Me too"
Is Sony finding any solution or not..!! Getting totally irritated..!!
