Jacky, 01 May 2014I used to love my xperia z1. But after this update its a really really shit phone. laggy batte... moreIsn't Android more by Google? Shouldn't you guys blame them, too?
My only problem has been that Camera-thingy but I changed those pre-settings on manual and now It's working just fine.
Heating is also a problem.
Also I hate autocorrection on Android...

hardslap, 06 Jun 2014Has anyone lost network connection since I did the update to 4.4.2 my network drops every coup... moreYeah I have the same issue, takes ages to read the text or reply. I rang Sony today they advised me to repair the software through Sony companion, but nothing has changed.
Even for backing up or restoring phone takes 3-4 hours.
Updated to kitkat. After 30 mins, battery drains from 70 to 5%. It's very hot. Camera hangs. Had to wait to load. Heats up even just a minute of call. Didn't have this prob before update. Sony this terrible.
After i update my Z1 to kitkat android,the camera is lagging and its really annoyed me. Please fix it
the update give a lot of bug in camera
i cant take a picture when the battery below 30%.

Has anyone lost network connection since I did the update to 4.4.2 my network drops every couple of minutes cant make a call or send texts its a total nightmare im on Vodafone UK xperia z
I have the same problem with my experia z1.. All fine until after the update to "kitkat".. Now the battery drains faster, when I unlock my phone the screen kinda freezes and takes its time to load backdrop and icons.. The worst thing is the camera.. Taking pics and it will freeze on the last pic I took and the only way to get out of it is to lock/ unlock it. Or press the red reset button... A bloody Piss take on such an expensive device. Also sometimes the alarm will keep sounding even after I have pressed snooze or turned it off..
i have updated my version of Z-1 last night by far its going smooth and honestly i'm Loving it.
As far as other are concern i dont think so such can happen.
Sony Z-1 Rocks;)
my sony z1 gets hanged , heated up, battery to zero in 5 hours if data connection on. after software upgrated to kitkat. got fed up.
Bought SONY Compact Z1 on June 3rd. I was so excited to see the features and user interface as i was a die hard Sony fan. Thought came in mind to buy iPhone 5c or HTC one MINI. I ended up in buying beautiful Z1 Compact. On Powering on Z1 Compact, and browsed Apps and OS features. Then started listening to Music, suddenly the whole screen started flickering and touch was unresponsive. I was shocked to see this unusual behavior. It happened for almost 8 mins. :(
Version is 4.4.2 Do fix this issue ASAP. I don't want to give bad comments about Mobile to my Friends and don't want this to never ever.
This update has completely made Xperia go full retard. Touch screen flips out and becomes impossible to use causing me to restart the phone everytime. This happens every 3 hours or so. And battery life has been terrible. And the new built in messaging app is slow and constantly crashes. And constant loss of WiFi connection. Not cool Sony not cool at all. When I first got my Xperia Z1 it was a beast and the best phone I have ever had now I'm tempted to go back to iPhone or go to Samsung.
