Re: 4.4.2 problems for xperia z zl and zr

Battery performance has significantly deteriorated. It is draining 20% per hour with minimal activity.

At least for my phone, the culprit appears to be Google Play Service. It is eating the battery alive, consuming anywhere from 70% to 90% of the battery. Also the phone is always awake, according to the battery usage meter. It also gets hot faster.

The phone right now is simply unusable!

I'm looking for instructions to downgrade to Jellybean.

Fallback is not needed,

Maybe update google relate app to latest or factory reset can solve you issue

 

I did not find such issue.

Re: 4.4.2 problems for xperia z zl and zr

I got the update yesterday for my Xperia Z and like everyone else, battery drain is an issue (Was using the phone while charging and got a message saying that my charging device wasn't charging the phone quick enough, it's the stock charger and never had any issue before). Even just checking my Facebook for a min it dropped to 97% from 100% while plugged in.

 

I had an Iron-Man Live wallpaper, which worked fine on 4.2, but every time I unlocked the phone it would take a few seconds to load. Eventually took it off, and now I no longer experience lag on the keyboard, which wasn't an issue until yesterday.

 

I've also noticed Google services seems to be using a lot of the battery.

 

Not liking having to change tabs to get to settings, was easier when they were just there, having 2 tabs doesn't do anything to help.

 

I think the UI looks slicker, love the additional emoticons, but these are secondary to performance. I hope these issues are rectified quickly.

Re: 4.4.2 problems for xperia z zl and zr

battery problem is not actually a probelm..the phone is getting used to the new firmware..it takes a few days for the phone to adopt completely..have patience : )..if the problem is still preserved after a week..a factory reset r firmware repair is mandatory...

Experienced the same problems after the kitkat update. Try to restart your phone it will work a lil bit.

May Z sometimes have a problem when opening the screen, when i'm pushing the power button. It takes 2-5 push of power button to open the screen. Does some of you guys experience thi??

Re: 4.4.2 problems for xperia z zl and zr

Hi!
Upgraded my c6603 into kitkat yesterday using SUS , and Google Services is pain for the battery (72% after 10hours) compared to my Netflix app that only took 18% after 8 hours of tv-series viewing (switching episodes and the phone mainly in locked screen). Never experienced anything like this on any previous upgrade, so people who claim that phone have to get used to the new systemsoftware.....I just dont belive you. I've never seen no other customer- device that got that kind of AI.
I drained 20% of battery in reading these 6 pages and by typing this post.
It's a BUG.
