MIne's started overheating too, but only since the 4.4.4 update. Battery going quicker and loads hotter than ever before at times. I don't think i've added any new apps recently either?
Edit - battery use shows Android System has used 45% recently, as someone else mentioned

Yep, all sounds very familiar... hot, bad battery life and a high percentage of system resources being used by the Android system...
I've discharged and charge a few times since my last post and I have to say, things have really settled down quite nicely. I don't think the battery lifes as good as 4.3 but its okay. I've had no more heat issues since and the Android System is showing 12% at present. My advice is to hang in there, discharge/charge a few more times and see how you get on.
Thinking about it, I might have completely switched off and reset (from standby; volume up and the power button until you feel 3 vibrations) at least once since updating - maybe that helped too? Worth a try :smileysmileywink:

Still overheating once a day on average. Strange thing is it stays hot for ages after it's switched itself off, so something's still going on in there?
I guess there's nothing to do except get it in to carphone warehouse and let them send it off to Sony?

Regarding the overheating: Have you tried a restart and/or reset (using the hidden button under the micro sim flap)?
Regarding the duplicate photos: It may just be a matter of changing the album version (older or newer version). The workaround using. nomedia files did the trick for me.
