Re: Detailed Software Repair Instructions using Pc Companion(Win)or Bridge for MAC. (Update 8/5/2014

I follow as your instruction very well! but whenever it's try to find software, it display as;

"Problem: There is no software available for your device.
Details: Sony Update Engine doesn't have software available for your device.

Troubleshooting: please try again later"

I also installed latest version of java on my PC and also change USB settings to the 'mass storage mode'
but still not helpful. Is there other way to succeed the update and fix my Sony device to normal?
right now my sony device have 4.4.2 kitkat version. is it ok?

Re: Detailed Software Repair Instructions using Pc Companion(Win)or Bridge for MAC. (Update 8/5/2014

I have been saying and saying that sony camera software is bad its so poor that it cannot beat Chinese brands who uses sony sensors the main problem is the software in z z1 z1c and z2 the hardware is top notch



see superior auto is not that intelligent when taking in low light or indoor light it increases the iso and exposure so high the pictures are noisy and grainy plus it has so much poor processing behind it

and in manual mode when setting the iso less eg.at 100 the noise is less but because of poor processing the images dont have details in it



so needs to fix this issue because in every new update is a bad experience with the camera when i bought the phone z1 daylight pictures were good now i am on 4.4.4 i have repaired showed it to service center they repaired the software with their trick but the camera experience more poor on 4.4.4 i see no improvements in any updates



also you might want to see this z2 cannot beat lg g3 and oppo find 7 because z2 is the second best in hardware in this comparison but lg g3 and oppo find 7 has better software they beat z2

update:2 now one plus one is better than sony see theirs new camera update how amezing the 13 mp camera is now because of good software provided by cm mod team

http://www.phonearena.com/news/OnePlus-One-gets-Clear-image-camera-feature-in-latest-CyanogenMod-11S...

update 3 : this is the latest xperia z3 compact failed to beat 8mpand 13 mp



fixing the software algorithms and becoming the camera kings will gain peoples trust owners of z z1 z2 z3 will think they have the best camera phone after the fix but for now its disappointing


the reviewers betekt who loves sony phones are shocked with this results

if sony fixes this issue removing the poor processing and making the camera software good they could be kings of camera phones so please sony provide us with a good software for camera

We need fix the issue, I mean send us new software for camera, see this:
IPhone 6 with 8MP vs Xperia z3 with 20.7MP
