Yesterday, i have done a factory resest and reinstalled the latest kit kst available. Probably in 3-4 days i can tell my opion. Seems like battery has increased in stand by, but lets wait a few more days and will tell you then.
For now, stay on jb.
Lets talk in 3-4 days. Best regards

Maybe sony advive us to do a factory reset, but should indicate clear when doing through pc companion. Maybe i am not a tech savy so clear indication are recommended.
anyway, i have made a factory reset, then reinstall kit kat. Phone seems to get hotter, battery seems better. Phone did restart out of nowhere, camera told me to wait because of phone's high temperature.
Have i done wrong? I have made a factory reset before and after reinstalling kitkat.
Thank you for indication and waiting for the link.
rahul, 17 May 2014What about Z1 Compact? Does it support 4G in INDIA?Theres only one model for the Z1 compact, Z1 Compact D5503 and it supports LTE in some bands, I don't know the bands the companies are gonna use in india, google 'India LTE frequency bands' or something like that, if the telecom companies already said they are going to support LTE this year they already have the frequency bands they are bands they are gonna use, they should request those bands to an organization some time ago
With sony update service...I have update my xperia z1 to kitkat...
With no issues,lags and bugs... All functions are excellent.

But some of th... morefirst you have to do is to know in what band frequency is going work the LTE in India, each phone has different bands and it won't if it's not in the same band, the Z1 C6092 does not support LTE the others model does in differents bands you can look it on the specs, and I recommend you the Z1 I really love it I can't tell you about other phones in the same rank because I haven't use then.

But if u install firmware of c6903 than it will support 4g too. All the hardware for different model of same device are same only there is software limitation. Over all the device is good while using 3g network.
I had Nokia 6280 before buying Z1 a month ago. Can anyone guide me to the best and simple way to transfer my phone book contacts to Z1 from Nokia?
Will Xperia z1 support 4G in INDIA? currently there is not 4G network in india. But some of the telecom company will start 4G services from September onwards. I am planning to buy a phone this week. Should I go for Z1 or go for some other phone? My budget doesnot allow to buy Z2 as it is too pricey in INDIA.
is there any difference between using SUS (Sony Update Service) and PCC (PC Companion)for updating android 4.4 KK? as I used the PCC to update the JB to its last version.
How long the battery lasts with you while using mobile data and Bluetooth on all the time on JB ?
I have my z1 with model C6903 4.5 months now. I'm still with android 4.3 JellyBean. I still haven't upgrade to KK because of the negative reviews i read about it. I'm not a heavy user yet. I start my day @ 7:00 am with my phone charged 100%. with mobile data on. No Bluetooth as i don't have the gear, but I need to have a wireless headset to handle calls while working. I talk like average 30 minutes a day. I check my e-mail 2-3 times a day. usually i don't send sms. But i check my facebook a lot and I chat using whatsapp a lot. I also browse the internet a lot. all that with STAMINA mode ON. I also use clean master app & Battery Guru & advanced task killer to save the battery as much as possible. No gaming most of the time, once or twice every 3 days. I also listen to music for 60-90 minutes a day. Screen brightness is less than 50 % adaptable to light after all that my battery became 15-20 % at 7:00 PM. then I have to turn mobile data off and the brightness to the minimum in order to keep the battery till I get home to recharge it. Noting that in Stamina mode am adding only some of the system files in the active in standby. although I've like 160 application installed on my phone. SO do you think I have a problem with the battery ? or am I just over reacting, or had a better expectations for 3000 mah?
peria, 17 May 2014Pls tell me z1 hangs after few months of usage ?Is good. Was better on jb but it is good. It freezes sometimes in asphalt 8, sometimes there is a lag when opening sms app. Signal/reception is good, battery is average - 1 and half day of easy usage, under 24 hours if moderate to heavy usage.
It is a good phone, with a very good camera especially in good light, a little to big and bulky for a 5 inch screen, but manageable, and with some issues after kitkat update, which you can live with but takes away the first solid good impression i have had about this device.
Anonymous, 16 May 2014I'm thinking about making a purchase on this phone. Should I am I making the right decision? Wait for z2 with ips display

I have had htc and Samsung before an none of them needed a factory reset before or /and after update
If it is necessary Sony should have informed us. Poor support anyway.
My first smartphone and i won't buy another Sony phone very soon. Every 6 months i get an old phone with poor support.
