Should I update my ZR to 4.4.4?


I am still on 4.2.2 on ZR as I am worried that updating will create issues. I updated from 4.1.2 to 4.2.2 as in 4.1.2 FM radio quality was very poor. 4.2.2  still has pathetic camera quality - it is 13 mega pixel for creating bigger images only but qaulity is lesser than 3.2 mega pixell camera. Call volume is way too low on ear phone too. Substandard equipment, Is 4.4.4 is going to improve this?.

Thank you.

Re: Should I update my ZR to 4.4.4?

Yes you should upgrade phone was lagging in older versions and camera quality in 4.4.4 is good as compared to older versions if you want to take pics which are nearer i will recommend you to use Google Camera app.

Xperia Z update to 10.5.1.A.0.283 Fails...

Hello every body. I'm trying to update my Sony Xperia Z C6602 to new firmware version 10.5.1.A.0.283 using Sony Pc Companion software. I do all the steps correctly, but when the update process (Step 3) starts, when phone shuts down, update process stops and give me a message that there is no software available for my device and I should try again later. I do these steps more than ten times but the problem persists. Can anyone help me? Or does anyone the same problem?

Any idea on when Orange UK will get this do we know?


Also, does anyone know if fixes this bug:


"Sony to release new KitKat firmware next week to fix sound bug for Xperia Z1, Z Ultra and Z1 Compact users"

because i've had this issue since i upgraded to 4.4.2 when was available and if this is things to come from Sony, may have to look at another brand of phone after 15 & more years!


mine is uk c6603


seus keeps saying i am on latest
