abc7854, 20 Feb 2014battery performance after update? I want to buy this phone but hesitating due to low capacity ... moreI do admit after updating the battery life became worst but its still amazing after the update.
I hope Sony will release a version of the Z1 compact which is removable battery.
I've been using this phone for almost a year now and I think the battery is not that bad.. for normal use, the battery could last for a day.. :)
Hopefully Sony produce battery with at least 3000mAh for this phone. Definitely to maximized its performance.
Based on my experience, when i'm using mobile data(LTE) in this phone, my battery drains so fast just about 2-3 hours of non-stop using it, For me that is the only bad side of this phone but the rest is performing very well. I love my Xperia V, thanks for the 4.3 update which make UI more smoother and better.
have alot of specifications
but my advice donot buy it
the worst mobile i have seen
1. pause when playing games
2. overheating while gaming & browsing
3.screen become black

By the way, the 4.3 update for this phone made it amazing. I do admit that I encountered the camera bug after the installation but it has been resolved by re-installing the update.
I really love the change specially that you can now take pictures underwater by pressing the volume button as your camera shutter.
Also I think 4.3 update will be last update that this phone can get but lets no loose hope. I'll just have to cross my fingers and wish that 4.4 will be available for this device.
Gutt Grinder, 17 Feb 2014Yes you can update using both PC companion or OTA but OTA isn't accurate and the best option i... moreyour right Gutt Grinder. I just updated V via PC companion. OTA wont detect any updates but PC will. Its a good experience for me with 4.3 at the moment. what I like is the camera burst mode. and 4.3 is a bit sleeker. i hope they will give kitkat whether we'll like or not. it our choice, its their job.
