The KitKat update ruined the phone. Now the quick settings that used to be right at the top of the phone are buried under a sub menu (things like brightness control, Mobile Hotspot, etc). The volume on the phone is now a lot lower. I used to watch youtube vids at about 3/4 volume because it was soo loud, now I have to use full volume. Still has problems with apps crashing when power is connected/disconnected (pages refresh on browser or browser just crashes). My battery life has just completely gone down the tubes since the update. Location permissions are now ALL OR Nothing. No choices.Battery Icon no longer tells you the percentage left. Just a useless img.

This is a over price Smartphone.
Sony need to send the new KitKat 4.4.4 update for the Z1s.
I have paid $675.00 Dollars in a T-Mobile store in Brooklyn, NY.
Sony camera need to be updated, in addition the phone is very slow.
It's a waste of money unless Sony could update the phone to Android L instead of KitKat .

Just to chime in about the "Scratchy glass". Sony manufactures the phone with a shatter-resistant film front and back. I scuffed my Z the second week I had it and really freaked. But on further inspection I found the film and could peel it off no problem. Except all the branding goes with it. But no "Scratchy glass" cause it is the glass and it does not scratch.

Love the phone. 32 gigs of internal storage is awesome. Still waiting for the calendar and Album updates. And most of all, waiting for kitkat. This is Ct. in the USA. If I could just these updates, I'll be a happy camper!! Anyone know about the aforementioned??? Any help would be appreciated.
