Re: Bluetooth car connectivity problem with kitkat (10.5.A.0.230)

I experienced similar bluetooth connectivity issues after upgrading to Android 4.3 with my Kenwood carkit. I managed to solve it by upgrading the bluetooth firmware of the carkit itself. You might want to try the same.

Sony's only stable os version was 4.1.2 after that all are added bugs not upgrades.

Re: 4.4.2 problems for xperia z zl and zr

I had the battery drain issue after the update to 4.4.2. Very frustrating as I've really enjoyed the mobile for the last year and a half and I was almost definitely going to by another Sony phone. Not anymore. The fact that they can release a software update that causes such an issue is amazing. They killed my phone! To make matters worse they don't seem to be getting back to my email.

I did a factory reset after backing up and it does seem to have improved the battery issue but only marginally! The battery drain is still stupidly high. After the factory reset google services was not sapping my battery, two days later and the drainage is at 85%!!!!

I need to stop typing as thinking about this isn't good for my sharply rising blood pressure!!

Re: 4.4.2 problems for xperia z zl and zr

Apparently this is a widespread problem not just for sony phones.

The reason google play services is eating the battery and the phone heats up is because of a bug linked with controlling the camera within 4.4.2

This site suggests uninstlling skype, but basically we have to wait for google and sony for a fix as it is a basic coding problem Slightly frowning Face

Same problems as everybody else, my Xperia Z is getting crazy hot and the battery drains extreamly fast! My phone was perfect before the update Slightly frowning Face before I used to have 50% battery left when I went to bed now I have to reload it during the day! Slightly frowning Face

Re: 4.4.2 problems for xperia z zl and zr

We all have the same problems Sony, and me and my friend too the same as the others.. Is anybody that can answer or listen to our problems? try to record via messenger and tell me if it works.. mine isn't working and my phone is lagging like crazy. And of course my battery.. today in like 12 hours my battery went from 100% to 37% without doing anything.. not even Chrome, or Youtube or games..

Can you please delete this update (Version) and let us have the previews one? or a better one whatever!!!

C'mon DO SOMETHING!!

Re: 4.4.2 problems for xperia z zl and zr

Hi all,

I had the exact same battery drain issue and decided to try a suggestion from a previous post to download an application called Gservicefix. My phone hasn't had an issue since! And the bluetooth issue I was having (it was disconnecting from my car stereo) is gone too! C6506 here Slightly smiling Face
