Re: New Android 5.0, Lollipop firmware update - [UPDATED]

What an terrible update. Decreased battery life
App crashes
Poor quality speaker sound in calls
Incorrect codec for voice calls
No ability to edit mid word(delete mid word causes end character to delete)
Bad screen resolution in home page(top of clock missing)
Home page slow to render when exciting out of apps
Odd phone behaviour when in call
No screen lock out when in call
There are a few more that I'm spotting everyday

Re: new lollipop update build number 14.5.A.0.270 for z1

Xperia Z1 update (14.5.A.0.270) changelog

– Ensured the lock screen / notification bar doesn’t indicate “no service” when the device has coverage
– Added a Sony feature; bringing back the “close-all-button” in the activity menu, so you can easily close all apps at once
– Unblocked devices with server policies (such as Exchange Active Sync for e-mail), to enable the new Lollipop lock-screen notifications
– Ensured the LED light is lit across all sound modes – and no longer offset by “silent”
– Made the necessary fixes to enable the easy movement of content from internal memory to external microSD card (something we saw affecting a few devices)
– Improved messaging functionality in Ultra stamina mode – some conversations could not be opened before in Ultra stamina mode

For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled.   Richard P. Feynman

Hi support team,
I received 2 emails on 26 May 2015 from your team regarding to update new software v.14.5.A.0.270 but my current SW also still the same and up to date. Why I received these emails?. If the developer team want to fix some bug on the current software, they should inform a user and begin to start rolling out in the same day NOT just send email to a user and then keep user waiting for the software for too long (I've known it's taking too long but not like this).
Please refer screen shot of the email :

Hi Rum Rai7, Sony do not send email alerts other than through their own app. Be careful that this maybe a spam with malware. Try using PC companion to check for updates instead of waiting for OTA.

I agree with you that users should be allowed to disable this notification sound. Perhaps @Rickard could comment on this. 


Well apparently @Rickard had nothing to say.... Meanwhile people are annoyed every night because of this silly meaningless thing. I can see with my eyes that I am plugging in the ****ing cable, why do I need to be notified with a sound?

I know this was Google's idea, but if Google employs sad nerds who are all singles and chronic masturbators (and therefore do not appreciate what an annoyance this is) it doesn't mean that Sony cannot fix the problem for us who have a normal life.


As a user, I benefit from this option when putting phone on charging dock. You need some adjusting to make sure it's correctly place especially if you have a style cover attached, and sound alert makes that more convinient. Yet I agree that it can be also a toggle option so people can deactivate it whenever they want.


When the phone connects to the charging dock the screen rotates to landscape so that's another way to check that it is charging without the need of a loud notification.

Soon we'll get an update to Xperia Home that will allow homescreen rotation, then sound will be the only indicator (along with charging icon).

Feel free to kudo this post or mark it as solution so that other users facing the same issue can find it

Re: New Android 5.0, Lollipop firmware update - [UPDATED]

After the Update for Z1s, I cannot answer incoming calls. When making calls the receiver cannot hear me. When I click on Messaging to make a Text Message my Photo Album opens. The phone is 75% slower now. SONY PLEASE FIX THESE ISSUES NOW!!

Re: New Android 5.0, Lollipop firmware update - [UPDATED]

Since the update, My phone doesn't turn data off once connected to wifi. It is running both at the same time. I noticed when I got notification that my data was close to exceeding, and thought that was strange as I have barley come close to using 1/2.
