Re: Z1 issues after 5.0 update

I updated my Z1 about 10 days ago. First the battery was draining fast. I usually recharge my phone once every 36 hours but after the update it was like once every 12 hours. I found out that Guest account was draining the battery. i removed completely the guest account and that fixed the issue. now im back to the once every 36 hours recharge.
other issues i noticed:
smart connect stopped functioning a few times 2-3 days after the update a few times after i opened phone app or some other apps.(cant remember which ones but moslty it was after i opened phone app) it was fixed by itself, meaning havent gotten an error message for a week now.
sometimes, very rarely,  i need to tap 2 times on an icon to open an app

after pressing the home screen, icons need time to load. this sometimes also happens when i tap the app list button.

camera app is very slow to open. sometimes 4-5 seconds pass before the app is opened. no other issues except that. i think picture quality got better.

app store laggs when downloading new apps even if im using wifi connection. download time on kitkat on another device is unchanged. app install time is not affected.

changing between apps or opening new apps needs more time

overall performance before the update was better. you dont have the feeling of fluidity anymore. although just after the update you could not talk about fluidity at all. now is much better than just before the update.
I guess im gonna wait a few days more (a week or two) and see it it will be better, which i believe it will.

Re: Z1 issues after 5.0 update

Well I think it is about one week I have updated my Z1 to 5.0. It is working very good. After deleting about two GB of pictures it is working very fast. Still I have lot of pictures. Battery performance is same as before. It is enough for one day Of course with a lot of Internet usage. Camera 🎥 is good. The only problem that I have (after update) is alarm ⏰. When it starts to ringing every thing on screen moves also so I cannot stop the alarm ⏰. I tried side key 🔑 also but nothing happens.(it is sats to silence 🔇 the alarm )Just I can restart it. Well I have no idea how to fix it.

Lollipop update - sms won't load and battery draining very quickly

Ok I get the battery is draining because it's doing 'something' in the background but it's draining quicker than I can charge it and the phone is very hot. I've restarted if but it's still doing it. Nothing unusual in the power information area - it's not showing messaging as killing the power or anything else unusual for that matter.

 

The main issue though is I can't load my sms. I go in to Messaging and there is nothing there, no messages - nowt. I've tried installing an external messaging app and they aren't showing any messages either.

 

But PLEASE I need my text messages I have a backup from two days ago how can I get the app (any of them!) working please so I text.... I have also tried to clear the settings and cache and that hasn't worked either Slightly frowning Face

Any tips before upgrading to lollipop ?

I have an unlocked Z1 (in UK). I got the notification of new sw yesterday. Just because my phone is working well, I am not jumping on this upgrade immediately. I will be doing the usual step of backing up personal data like contacts, text, photos etc.. either using sony companion or other apps.

 

I am also keeping a record of how phone is functioning now.. usual battery life, what standby is show at 100% battery, benchmarks etc (on kitkat)

 

are there any other things I should do before doing the upgrade ? e.g. doing a factory reset on kitkat first.. then go to lollipop...

 

or anything else.. just to make sure it goes well ?

Re: Any tips before upgrading to lollipop ?

Back everything up in triplicate lol....

 

I've been running it on my Z2 tablet and it's been great but I upgraded my Z1 phone last night and have had problems today.

 

But - I don't think it's anything that couldnt be fixed with a repair so if you have a good backup of your data you will be fine just in case you do hit any funnies.
