Re: 4.4.2 problems for xperia z zl and zr

Cool... So, Google introduces App to SD several versions ago, and now practically prohibit this. I call for idiotism. Especially, because what harm can an internal SD cark cause what an external USB storage can't?

 

Sometimes I feel Google creates something good, and after that systematically make it worst. See: in Jelly Bean, e.g. Angry Bird backup programs haven't got permission. Google maps are slower and harder to use, etc...

 

So, now what the SD card can be used for? As a ROM it is quite extravagant, I think. And perhaps, this makes some bigger games unusable, if there are not enough internal memory in the phone, doesn't?

Sorry,thats rubbish, i don't believe that for one minute, 1 reboot maybe 2 at the most, there is something majorly wrong with the OS for battery usage on google play services to have jumped to 92% usage. It needs acknowledging and fixing by Google \ Sony , and it isn't a problem confined to sony devices. Apart from that pretty big issue, good update.

 

Edit - After further testing, i've turned off google now and removed Chrome, and battery usage on google play services isdropping, from 92% to 83%, i'm assuming that will keep dropping throughout the day. Give it a whirl and try it yourself. if it does, i'll reinstall chrome and see what happens.

Forgive me, but this is a most inane response. Phones don't "settle".  The OS drives the firmware and the firmware drives the phone. Battery use is not a "settling" issue.

 

As inconvenient as it may be, best practices when upgrading an OS is to do a clean install. What you may be experiencing is one or more installed applications not being fully kitkat compatible. Clean install gives a pristine platform onto which you can install/reinstall apps.

 

But please stop with the "phone has to settle" drivel.

My XPERIA Z after upgrade to 4.4.2 (10.5.A.0.230, first by upgrade option, next using phone repair) restarts itselft sometimes with no visilble root cause. It's very strage behaviour.

Re: 4.4.2 problems for xperia z zl and zr

Ever since the update I am only receiving audio through my headphones including phone calls, Walkman, video etc. repairing the phone with PC companion is not an option as my USB connector not longer works and I charge the phone with the charging dock.

I hope this is just a fixable bug or I'll be forever wearing headphones!

Xperia Z KitKat (.230) audio stutters on headphones and camera is uber slow

The KitKat update has made camera superbly slow (manual mode), after taking a snap, the camera seems to take 1 sec to save the pic, compared to instantly which we have in android 4.3. 

The Recent kitkat update also caused excessive, if not unacceptable (actually even 1 stutter per song is unacceptable when i paid so much for this phone), stuttering when using headphones.

 

If this is Sony's plan, which is Operation Let's Release A Crappy Update So That People Buy Z2, then, BRAVO SONY, BRAVO, i might never buy another xperia phone again, even samsung does a better and FASTER job at releasing firmware updates WITH LESS BUGS. 

Would you like to clarify on this, Sony Xperia Team? Or will it be more like "i'm so sorry about your problem, but go blame google and qualcomm, here is a link to buy the Z2" ?

Sincerely,
Disappointed Sony Customer that thought Sony was a better choice compared to Samsung And HTC.

Re: 4.4.2 problems for xperia z zl and zr

Camera has faster shutter speed, yes, but CRAPPY SLOW picture saving speed, now after we take a pic, we need to wait longer til we can snap again.

Audio stutter when using headphones is so **bleep** terrible.

Overall, kitkat lags more than jellybean.

Congratz sony, Operation Buy Z2 successful, also "let's blame google, it's google's fault"
