Was 4.2.2 better than the lastest 4.4.4??? Os is it just me?

I liked using my ZL on 4.2.2 then it was stolen. I plan to get another one. Please advice me on whether to updated or not. Need a review about this!

Is there root for lastest version 4.4.4, too? Please help! (No bootloader unlocking for root, I don't like that)

Thanks!

Used wifi n videos for 2hrs and then after 12hrs charge is 19% so i do not want people to upgarde to 4.4.4 if they are using jelly bean. Go ahead with the update if u have 4.4.2. Thanx

Just updated to 4.4.4 and things got a better. Battery now lasts longer compared to the 4.4.2. 30%-40% better. Settings lag is gone. Apps load faster. Enjoy your update guys!

Love it! It's amazing, and also my 1st smartphone. I spent a lot of time researching the best fit for me features and price wise and I'm very happy with it. Isn't it funny though how when you get a new phone, you spend a lot of time looking for apps that will make it do what your old phone did? All part of the fun, I guess.

i made the worst decision. iphone 5 at that time vs experia zl. i selected experial zl over iphone. but then in less than a year my experia had so many problems. battery, freezing and many more its a nightmare. ever purchased extended warranty. the service station took 2 months for diagnosis plus they let me pay for the battery.

I dont have cash bro :( got it on a credit card.

People who are facing issues with phone are posting here because this space is called " the comments section" where people are supposed to share there experience.

And who told you we are posting here instead of going to service center? We are posting after submitting the phone in service center.

Your brain is dead for sure :P. I has the warranty card and shit but the service center people insisted on the Sony Centre Invoice with IMEI.

However here is some interesting update:

They called be after 10 dayand say the mother board is gone and it will take 4 days to get a new one. Then after 10 more days(which is today), I called them up to ask if they had fixed my phone.

The girl said we will call you back tomorrow. I insisted them to give me an update right then, the girl kept me on hold for 10 minutes and then said you will get a Xperia Z and Sony will call me tomorrow regarding this.

I just hope they dont ask me for extra money. I already bought this ZL on my credit card and am still paying my dues while the phone is sitting in a service center and I am using my nokia 1100.

Lets see what happens tomorrow.Till then Peace!!
