Thanks Sony for giving us a smooth update, it feels like i'm using an xperia z ultra because of the smoothness of my xperia s right now. Hehe thanks again
I can't start camera neither by swiping from lock screen or holding the camera key. I can only start it by pressing camera icon in main menu. Does anyone have the same problem and any solution?
I updated my phone to 6.2.B.1.96. Now, when I want to launch google now by holding the home key, it says network error, please check your network connection. Does anyone know how to solve this problem? Thanks!

Sony Mobile has just released a full list of improvements that the recent 6.2.B.1.96 firmware update brought to the Xperia S, Xperia SL and Xperia acro S.
The update brought some significant improvements over the earlier Android 4.1.2 build, including performance and stability enhancements. See the full list of changes below.
For camera, we’ve…
addressed an abnormality in the white balance
improved the “Quick Launch” button functionality
smoothed out (1080p) video recording, minimizing lag
For apps, services & data, we’ve…
streamlined Exchange Active Sync, particularly when running an encrypted set-up
boosted connection stability for 2G network data
ensured preferences on 3rd party apps remain after reboot – not a common problem, but we understand it can be a frustrating one!
For battery, we’ve…
economised power consumption, and heat dispersion for longer life
corrected juice level notifications, especially when running low
And for hardware & UI, we’ve…
introduced a home key long-press to launch Google Now, and a double-press to launch Recent Apps
made sure the volume “up” button is fully responsive
Toukhy, 25 Aug 2013what about the battery life, because i am afraid of buying it for that reason plz give me ur f... morebattery life is not so good, It drains so fast hardly 4 to 5 hours on continuous usage. stand by 9 hours. processing speed is low. you can better go for an Quad core phones. main advantages are camera and screen clarity. but on a nominal screen brightness and continuous usage of cam drains the battery like any thing with in 1 hours mobile get shut down on continuous usage of camera. Not so handy,thick with curved back which is actually slippery.
