Re: Xperia Z, ZR, ZL 4.3 Update Bugs

On my C5502, Bluetooth stopped working after the update: My Xperia does not show any other Bluetooth devices if I click on discover, and if I make the Xperia discoverable, it doesn't show up on other devices. Really annoying since I need Bluetooth all the time for my Pebble watch

Re: Xperia Z android update 4.3 problem

I'm having the same problems as you guys but am also having problems with my screen were the notification panel ends up at the bottom? I have repaired it 3 times now and flashed it still the same issue must be a 4.3 problem any advice?

Re: Xperia Z, ZR, ZL 4.3 Update Bugs

After updating C6603 to 4.3 android version, had a lot of problem with media server, which was draining battery. After a lot of research, I found out that unchecking the sound touch it stops. It does not apply with vibration only with the touch sound and after I disable it, media server stopped draining battery. Another issue I have after updating to new version its the phone became much slower, for a quad core phone with a snapdragon 600, it should not lag at all, but I does quite a lot. After all the battery is not good either. I know it has a great display and 441 pix per density, but if you play a game it drains much more then other phones, comparing to s3 or s4 and I really prefer much more sony. I hoppe we will have soon kit kat available for xperia z and that will improve battery, and we wont see lag.

Re: Xperia Z android update 4.3 problem

I, on the other side, lost camera after upgrading to 4.3. When I turn on the Camera, screen goes black, nothing works, have to wait till phone restarts. Also there is some flickering in Google Chrome since update. Sony your software department **bleep**, fix it, move them to Silicon Valley, whatever.

Re: Xperia Z, ZR, ZL 4.3 Update Bugs

My screen went dark after installing the update(I could still hear my touches and had to guess where the power off portion of the screen was...) and the screenshot border is a touch annoying 4.2.2 was flawless when are you going to sort out the bugs??

Re: Xperia Z, ZR, ZL 4.3 Update Bugs

Is this a forum where Sony actually do something about our issues or are they all just sitting back laughing at us all, because I can't see much input from Sony solving our problems!!!!!!!!
Feeling really annoyed with my phone now... Over a week now with no calls being made or received in my car since the 4.3 update!!!!!

lol you do realise this is a user support forum ? 

 

Its why I've mentioned multiple times now that people need to contact Sony Directly and report these issue's, also send a link to this thread.
