Z1/Z1s 4.4.2 update issues

Re: Z1/Z1s 4.4.2 update issues

Since this update, my Z2 isn't working as good as before. Auto rotate doesn't function properly, phone over heats, no quick link to silence phone anymore, camera switches off on a whim and phone needs numerous restarts as it completely freezes on me. The question to you is, why was such a bad update allowed in the first place? Whoever made this choice should be sacked. I made the transition from iPhone to Sony and was really happy with the system until these updates. Might go back to Apple after this.

Very Disappointed

Re: Z1/Z1s 4.4.2 update issues

My xperia is amazing I will hopefully never have to buy another kind of phone ever again but this new update is killing me! Just went to Vegas for the first time and the camera was not only saying not available half the time but also closing out, taking forever to load and my picture album and texting is also moving slower than ever. MMS messages are coming in pixilated and blurry and this all is crucial in my life because I document everything with my phone and until now have been able to do so without having someone look over my should for five minutes waiting on a photo to load or posing for a picture while I scramble to close out my camera app and reopening it to only find it still doesn't wanna function right. Please help I love the xperia and want to keep it in my life.

Help! After the update everything is working fine except text messaging.  Every time I try to open text messaging I just get a blank white screen and then it crashes and says messaging has stopped working.

@Kayley6 Do you have Java installed and is it upto date?
