Re: 4.4.2 and 4.4.4 problems for xperia Z,ZL and ZR

@ogancihan..

Create a blank .nomedia file (or copy it from a folder that already has it) inside Android/data/com.sonyericsson.music

This prevents any new images inside the directory from appearing in Album. But for existing ones, you could either delete them or clear the Album app data.

 

Even better would be to create the file inside Android folder itself, so that images from other apps also do not appear.

Re: 4.4.2 and 4.4.4 problems for xperia Z,ZL and ZR

Guys,

 

I had battery issues when I updated my phone to 4.4.4. I posted here and I was suggested to do a software repair. The battery issue is resolved completely. Atleast for my usage, The phone is back to 18-20 hours backup. 

Thanks.

Re: 4.4.2 and 4.4.4 problems for xperia Z,ZL and ZR

How come everytime i start a post about my google services it gets added to a larger post??? I am currently getting less than 4 hours out of my phone and have no idea what to do about my google services. I disable it and within a day or two it starts draining my battery again!!!

 

I dont know if my posts are getting overlooked as they keep getting added to this post!!!!

Re: 4.4.2 and 4.4.4 problems for xperia Z,ZL and ZR

when I update with sony companion on android 4.4.4 10.5.1.A.0.283 began to hate my phone because I can't switch on display when proximity sensor are covered. It's very uncomfortable!!! Often happens that my finger covered this sensor and I can't switch on my display. And because of it display switch on with delay in night room. It was earlier in some firmware and this bug (fuc*ing feature) was orrected then, BUT in 10.5.1.A.0.283 I see it again and I hate-hate-hate it. Please correct it as soon as. I have c5503 model.

Re: 4.4.2 and 4.4.4 problems for xperia Z,ZL and ZR

Hey ! 

 

I have upgraded my firmware too - 4.4.4 (build number 283)  

 

Usage of 14 Hours (2.5 hours of screen) - Wifi enabled all the time, played games, listened to songs etc, and battery left is 26%. Shows 8 hours of juice left - though I doubt that. 

 

Do the above numbers look OK ?  What was the fix/workaround being followed ?

Hey - I have tried this - covered my proximity sensors and switched on the display - it worked as expected ...no delay, no need for removing my finger etc..  SOmething else missing or misconfigured maybe ? ?
