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

And also the battery is drained really fast in the Xperia Z, i don´t know why an important company as Sony launch an update with all this errors, i was always happy with the Xperia Z performance but if they don´t fix this firmware i will have to get another phone, and it will not be a Sony.

Re: 4.4.2 problems for xperia z zl and zr

Updated my phone yesterday and I put myphone in the cargerdock 10 pm last night and it had 14% left. At 3 am it was at 81%. Feels like it's charging the battery in slowmotion, it has always been at 100% before. Now after 30 minutes of almost no use it's down to 71%. Feels like everything around the battery is a disaster after the update.

Re: 4.4.2 problems for xperia z zl and zr

I'm having the EXACT same issues. Why is Google Play Services taking so much battery life??

I would also add that Bluetooth is disconnecting after about 5 min of use. I have to reconnect and it will work for another 5 min.

The split of the dropdown menu isn't userfriendly, I hate it, want the old one back...

Horrible Battery Usage on Google Play Service after update 4.4.2

After update my Xperia Z to Android 4.4.2 the battery usage is just horrible, I just switch my Wi-Fi on left my phone and sleep after 7 hour> It used up the battery almost 50%. And the Google Play Service is used 74% of it. And I feel the phone back panel is warm even I don’t use it.

 

I tried to reset the Google play service which does not help. Reset the phone is not an option for me right now. I have some order information in some instant messager which I can’t lose it.

C6603 in HK - Massive issues

 

 

- The battery drains very fast, i can stay only 3 / 4 hours in standby. I loose 10% of battery every 30 minutes

- The phone is super hot

- Google Play Services consume the battery, usuallt around 60 / 70 %

- The mic does not work, I can not answer voice calls (i do not hear the caller's voice)

 

I hope there will be a fix.
