Re: India - Xperia Z Kitkat Upgrade Roll Over Status

It was really a very bad experience after the update because of its laggy UI but after i turned on force gpu rendering the lag has been reduced and as time passed the lag problem has dissappeared. And i didn't find any battery drain issue since i updated, it gives a decent back up of 13hrs with 60% screen brightness, data connection on(full 10hrs), sms, phone calls etc. But I'm not so satisfied with the features. I was expecting double tap to unlock.

Lag is still present but not every time. Whenever it starts lagging I just restart and it works for me, but this is not the solution. And one more thing, do you got the functions of two home in the settings menu. I saw this image of Xperia z running 4.4.2 and it has option to choose between two home.Screenshot_2014-07-12-02-15-26.png

I am so much afraid to update to kitkat. Please kindly can someone tell me if you have any battery issue. How is the battery life? Is Google Play Service causing huge battery drain ? Should I update or not. Please reply.

@Arin

I haven't updated my phone. It is because the batter drain issue which can lead for making phone gets heated. also can leads to recharge mulitple times. Which leads you to spend your great time in charging your phone.

 

That leads your battery can be un usuable or decrease of its life.

 

What is the greatest thing you are expecting with 4.4.2? If still think the discharge/heat issue is very small than the feature you are looking from 4.4.2 , you can go ahead.

 

or you may need to uncheck most of the things to work smoother. Then why you require a mobile which contais features but you cannot use because batter drain issue.
