Sony has started rolling out a new firmware update for the Xperia Z1 and the Xperia Z Ultra. The update makes improvements across the board, from the camera to the display and battery life.

On the Xperia Z1 you get an improved camera algorithm for better all round performance. Sony has also improved the Smart Social Camera platform that improves the performance of features such as Burst Mode, Superior Auto, AR Effect and Sweep Panorama.

On the Xperia Z Ultra, Sony has optimized touchscreen sensitivity that makes it more responsive with both fingers and stylii.

There are some changes common to both devices, that includes a re-calibrated display that improves display performance, altered power saving mode for longer battery life and streamlined Exchange connection for faster email sync, display and download.

The update has started rolling out and should be available on all devices shortly.
