Re: Xperia Z Kitkat update ruins my phone!

I really think my Phone is ruined with this short Battery life. How can we fix it? Can we do something to go back to jelly bean?

Re: Xperia Z Kitkat update ruins my phone!

Not only has this so-called "update" messed up most of my apps and bogged down the overall perfomance of my phone, but I really hate a number of the changes as well.  I know hate is a strong word but in this case it fits....

I can't tell you how many times I've opened the camera app when I swipe to open with the quick button located where it is now on the lock screen.... and with the lag in the camera function it slows it down more. And thats just opening the phone.....

There are more changes that I dislike but won't go on and on.

 

And yes, I've restarted my phone a number of times and done other things that people suggested to "fix" these issues....

 

I JUST WANT JELLY BEAN BACK PLEASE.   Is it possible?

Re: Xperia Z Kitkat update ruins my phone!

 Not happy with the Kit-Kat update. Phone is slow and judder (Which I could almost live with) but the battery performance has dropped significently since the update.

 

Phone will no longer charge in the car cradle, battery continues to drain at a much slower rate but it's not charging.

 

I've checked my battery usage and it's showing Google Play Services is using 75% of my battery. What is this now doing in the background that is having such an impact on battery performance?
