Exactly the same issue, happens randomly.

Re: Xperia Z, ZR, ZL 4.3 Update Bugs

I agree.

 

I liked the logic of being able to select the keyboard matching the intended language and the spell check also matching.

 

Now I have seen keys change for not apparent reason.

 

For example today I had the a Turkish i (without the dot) appear on the keyboard.

 

I would like it back the way that it was please.

Well, bluetooth has stopped working in my ZR. I don't know if it is a hardware issue or firmware issue. But Sony should really do something about this.

Have Sony Z, C6603.

 

After apdate to 4.3 can't use Bluetooth connection propertly. Now when somebody is calling me I need to find my phone and push answear button or cancel button on a phone, not on a steering wheel, like with JB 4.2. I was thinking, that it's my car issue and whent to dealership (thanks God I have a brand new car, it was warranty and cost me nothing). I reinstalled JB 4.3, but this didn't resolved the problem. This issue should be resolved, otherwise I will be fined by police, because it's not allowed even hold phone in hands in my country.

Re: Xperia Z, ZR, ZL 4.3 Update Bugs

So many people seem to be experiencing the Bluetooth issue since the JB 4.3 update, me included. I do hope sony releases a fix for this as, currently, my Xperia Z is a very expensive ornament in my car, not being able to connect to the Bluetooth on my Sony car radio in my Ford Mondeo. I saw somewhere else that Sony recommends updating the software in the car which is ridiculous. My pal with a Razr i running JB 4.3 can connect to it with no problems. I can't even connect with any other device to send photo's over BT.

 

Come on Sony, please release a patch urgently as it's clearly a firmware problem...

Re: Xperia Z, ZR, ZL 4.3 Update Bugs

I agree with all the Bugs listed and have also experienced regular glitches in Bluetooth transmission where there is a fractional loss in the sound track being transmitted but the connection is not lost.

 

I also have more problems connecting to my car as I have a separate car kit and blue tooth link to the radio the car kit picks up most times but the radio does not and I have to force the connection through the blue tooth settings.

 

In car mode the main phone home screen no longer rotates to portrait layout.

 

Increased battery drain

 

Perceived reduction in reliable 3g data connection

 

Perceived increase in messages saying I have missed a call when there is no reason for this to have happened ie poor reception in areas I have used the phone regularly.

 

White backgrounds for settings menus/widgets especially when using in low light conditions. Unless someone knows how to change this.

 

SW2 no wifi issue again 4.2.2 all worked fine

 

Bring back the old keyboard.

 

It may be the wrong section so apologies but the omission of access to the permissions management App opps feature is a major let down as this was the feature I most wanted from 4.3!

 

All in all a software upgrade that I had really looked forward to is by all accounts a step backwards! Come on Sony you can do better than this.
