Re: Xperia Z, ZR, ZL 4.3 Update Bugs

Just to add my comments elsewhere in a more appropriate location:

 

This refers to a UK Xperia Z, Orange / EE network. Recent update to 4.3. 

 

I noted: 

 

1. Immediate and sustained drop in standby time. Phone cannot even last a 9 - 5 day, mostly on standby, whereas before I could practically get 24hrs between charges in normal use. Battery usage app indicates that 70% percent of the power is being used by Android, whereas before it was always the display that was using most power, by far. 

 

2. Constantly losing 3G. This latter one is a nuisance as it seems that the only way to get mobile data again is to restart the phone.

Re: Xperia Z, ZR, ZL 4.3 Update Bugs

I have updated (v4.1.2 to v4.3) my Xperia ZR 2 weeks ago,

 

1. The battery drains faster than before, compared to Android v4.1.2

2. The back side of the phone will heat up in a short time during normal use, especially when taking photos.

3. Uses RAM more than Android v4.1.2 when idle.

 

Above are the problems I have been facing so far.

I have a wifi/bluetooth/sw2 issue. Should we wait for update/fix, or it would be better to downgrade to 4.2 ?

Sobre el wifi dice estar conectado hasta sale el icono de la señal pero al navegar u hacer otras cosas me dice los navegadores que sin conexión arreglen esto es muy molesto que un buen smatphone como el Xperia Z 6603 empiece con esto

It's been a few days since it started. Sometimes when I answer a call, it directly activates the speaker , so it is almost impossible for me to answer in public places.

Re: Xperia Z, ZR, ZL 4.3 Update Bugs

With regards to posts #87/#89/#151/#152/#155 - people who have upgraded to 4.3 and now experience problems with the power button not activating the phone.  I have the same problem.  After upgrading from 4.2.2 to 4.3 it seemed to work okay but then I encountered the power button issue.  Pressing the power button would not activate the phone.  Neither would the camera button.  The only solution was to plug it into the AC adaptor or pull the battery and restart it.  It seemed to work okay after pulling the battery but then a few days later I got the unresponsive power button again.  Perhaps if certain apps are running in the background the phone (power button) is more responsive?

 

Anyways, I did a phone repair using the PC Companion and have "stock" 4.3.  Now I can reproduce the problem all the time ;(  That is, after the phone goes to sleep the power button does not reactivate the phone.  I have to either plug it into the AC charger or pull the battery.

 

While reconfiguring my phone I activated STAMINA mode - what I normally use all the time.  Immediately I get the unresponsive power button ;(  Deactivating STAMINA mode and the power button becomes responsive again.  Perhaps whitelisting a certain app/service would allow STAMINA mode to work properly?  Sony Customer Care doesn't have a solution.

 

In summary, if the power button becomes unresponsive, deactivating STAMINA mode "solves" the problem.

 

PS.  People with Xperia Z phones also have the problem

I'd love to downgrade to 2.2 but how??

 

I had an email response from Sony about this. As usual, there is no attempt to resolve the issue - I'm not even sure if they actually read my message at all - just a generic email suggesting a "repair" via the PC bridge software. As other  posters have indicated, this does not resolve the problem and will require reinstallation of all my apps.

Everyone should email Sony support with the issues and a link to this thread.
