Yes about the update I am not happy with the portrait view of movies because in 5inch display if u play a video it leaves a lot of background above and below display that's not fair and if we switch of auto rotae screen (that some people do)then we hav to watch it in portrait mode only that's lame what was sony thnking about that videos are meant to enjoyed in amazing 1080p display in landscape mode sony just spoiled its display speciality
Cmapresident, 16 May 2013I'm in india and i updated the ZL only...the update is available only through the pc companion... moreNope that stupid pc companion always keeps telling phone is up to date I updated mine with SUS
how do i get the update done??? i just bought the phone today... And I am in U.A.E (Dubai) I am not getting the latest firmware version its showing 10.1.A.1.434 Please help
add to my last post, the video or movie quality on night seen dim down even the brightness level are max huhuhuhu ,, and now i want to roll back the update to 10.1.a.1.434
- all of the said improvement is true :D, BUT :'( white balance is a nonsense,recently apps interface toggling has log, captured image and album viewer also has log, i also experience that i am reading one of my friend message and suddenly i receive new message from my other friend and view it in the notification screen without leaving the message that i was reading before and after press the new message i arrived at the message that i was reading before.. there is also a bug on the camera when you select hdr+ scene in normal mode the flash button is read only and wildly it toggle on and off.
It's nice if GSMArena can update photo samples on the compare tool!
Big battery improvement in video watching, 8 hours with a midres XVID video at loop is no problem now, and the brightness is not near the minimum, auto brightness enabled. The best just got better, looking forward to the updated battery test.
[deleted post]How can you say that? Xperia Z it's very expensive... rather it seems that all brands are deliberately crippled something... (Samsung looks bad compared to rivals, and overly saturated photos that are much more defined ...)
before I'm wondering to buy sony x-z or galaxy s4.. but now I decided to buy Z.. you know why? because the durabilty won't let you down everything is good enough than s4 inside and out.. just think of it readers..!!!
Keep it up Sony! I just upgraded my Z and ZL. Honestly, i felt like wearing newly tailored clothes.....

Fortunately, you should be able to update now through Sony PC Companion. Cheers!

amazing update: lcd display viewing angles improved A LOT, it's like having a new phone today! probably due to contrast? blacks don't wash out as much as before looking different sides. thanks sony didn't let us down.
I'm from Sri Lanka and there isn't any update in here. I tried with both PC Companion and Update center. Are they releasing it region wise..?
