Dowwnload Xperiafirm

 

Will tell you who has it or not.

 

In the UK o2 and EE have it, but not vodafone

so if you are on vodafone, that is the reason why.

If anyone is interested 314 has for vodafone has just appeared on Xperifirm, so shouldn't be too long until devices can download it.

There's a 332MB update on my Vodafone provided phone, I assume this is the latest firmware.

 

Hopefully it fixes the useless fingerprint sensor.

Re: 55.0.A.2.314

Excellent news! I have yet to use my phone but glad the engineers/programmers jumped on rectifying software faults once the complaints started rolling in. I'm sure there will be further updates in the pipeline.

Re: 55.0.A.2.314

 

Just updated mine

 

Initial honest impressions:

 

Impressed by the camera speed launch.

Quicker auto focusing 

In auto mode its MUUUUUUUCH quicker to swtch between lenses

Saves a file quicker also, once a  photo has taken (around 1 second no compared to 4 before)

 

Issue still to be changed

 

IN full manual still photography mode, you cannot switch to the WIDE angle, bit of a pain but not a deal killer.

 

Stabilisation in video is still to be tested though.

 

Much better work on this patch Sony and well done to your RND team, however much more is yet to be doneSlightly smiling Face

 

BEFORE (taken last week)

I will do the after when i finish work,

Cinema Pro using different lenses, apature settings and a warm yellow filter. Hope next update that SONY dory out 4k stability. Mind you in a heavy footed git anyway.

This is good news, I found the camera utterly frustrating when trying to get it to use the 2x lens, and I found the autofocus to be quite unreliable as well when you tap the screen to tell it where you want to focus.

 

Have there been any improvements to the quality of the JPG's? The compression was quite heavy before, and if I want to take raw photos I'll use my Panasonic G9!

Re: 55.0.A.2.314

Have not tested for quality difference in photos before.

 

I have never had any problem with the photos, as you cna see by my photography thread.

 

Only time I have had noise issues is when I have used 'DEHAZE' in my photos ,as that always bringsi n lots of grain.
