Not sure if you have this problem on your phones but I have an Xperia ZL and ever since I updated to KitKat, beyond the battery draining problem, the latest problem I have is that the ZL will suddenly eject my SIM and SD card at random times, sometime during a call! I have to forcibly reset the phone to get it back up again, some times with 2-3 resets. Anyone else facing this problem and know a fix?
I might try a repair update on PC companion but just wanna know if anyone else got this issue too.

I received a notification that "10.5.A0.230" system updated available for my phone. I connect my phone to my PC ( window 7 X64) with the help of "Sony PC Companion". after connection it gave me the same update notification .. In few clicks, it starting downloading the updates . During the download it give me an option to disconnect my phone from PC as it is downloading it on my PC.. Finally download finished
After download , i connect my phone to my PC and after clicking on update option it open "device software update" window .. update process starts……. 1st -"Start "> i accept. 2nd "prepare" > preparing my phone for update and shutdown my phone .. *** Phone doesn’t start after that... m on the 3rd stage**
Now m on the 3 step ( Fon is still offf) ... and per the information. 1. Disconnect USB cable from PC and computer. 2. battery should be more then 50% 3. ******** TURN OFF THE FON AND WAIT FOR 5 SEC however my fon is still off on 2nd step. 4. Connect the USB cable to the PC. 5. PRESS AND HOLD THE VALUME DOWN KEY ON THE PHONE WHILE PLUGGING THE SUB CABLE INTO YOUR FON…. I did the same but after that an icon comes in system tray ( in PC) and its trying to load the S1BOOT FASTBOOT drive but its failed . My Phone is still off and nothing happened after this and need to leave the update process and start my phone by press the power key.
Am I doing it worng way or any other solution for this. I google this problem and found some solution but after applying these solutions my phone’s warranty will over

This new Kitkat update needs improvement. The phone is kind of slow when compared to Jelly Bean Version. The keyborad is getting stuck sometimes and sometimes the menu icon doesn't show up. It's not smooth as jelly bean.
We waited for such a long time for this update and still the update is not proper and is not expected from Sony. This is not done and expectations are always high from Sony. Please send a fix or performance enhancements for this as soon as possible.

1.cutting edge technology introduced, flagship phone every month.
2. new android os verions (with dot and double dot version) with lot of features and tweaks every 6 months.
3. Increased bugdget from $100 to $500 to $600 thinking we can enjoy every minute and get returns what we paid for. Entire world and entertinement and availability in our palm.
From above, I must say i am the 3rd !diot. 1 and 2 (I need not name them but every body who reads know who are they) made fool of customer.
Finally today, we all struggling to get rid of battery drain, laggy ness , atuomatic restart of phone ( others keep on continue with ...) ... issues so called flagship junks.
