My issue with the album app/movie app started when i upgraded my firmware to 4.3 just a week ago. I used to be very satisfied with the album and movie app with the previous firmware version. Everything was smooth, all the thumbnails show clearly and even with the animation, it has no problem at all. But when I upgraded my firmware, whenever I open a photo or a video (more on videos than photos) the phone just hangs and leaves a black display (dark dark gray). And btw, the thumbnails also has trouble showing. This bug annoyed me that I was forced to reinstall the firmware through Sony PC Companion, after the update my phone went back to the factory settings (i was not able to back-up my latest contacts and calendar, which forces me to use my 2013 back-up) and these two apps performed better than the previous version 4.3. But definitely not better than the 4.2.2 firmware still. Today, the update center prompted me that there's an album upgrade, then I quickly updated my album then the problem came back! I am not able to play even low-res videos, and it keeps hanging (asking me to WAIT, REPORT or CANCEL). I tried doing the CLEAR DATE through the settings menu, and I also did try uninstalling the update, but this did not work for me. Is there any patch or way that I can fix this issue? Thank you.
