I had the same problem...try booting your cell in safe mode once and henceforth the problem is gone
My experia is still having sound issues after doing factory reset two days ago. Sound comes out of ear piece instead of speaker until I pause and then unpause video or song. When I get phone calls sound is coming out of earpiece as well so can't hear it ringing.
Anyone got a fix yet?
I used to love my xperia z1. But after this update its a really really shit phone. laggy battery drains really fast, freezes camera takes 30 seconds to start then crashes, phone calls disconect all the time sound goes to internal speaker when playing music... sony this is really bad service. fix it or noone will ever buy your shitty software again
my phone gets hanged and nothing works i need to restart it again and the battery life is also reduced plz solve this problem or else tell me how to downgrade to 4.3 officially its really urgent plz find out solutions as early as possible.........
Awful. Camera takes 30 seconds to open and crashes when I take photos. Snapchat takes 30 seconds to load and crashes constantly aswell as all my other apps. My phone is constantly freezing and even shutting off. Please do a bug fix I can't handle this any longer.
I had/have the same problem!
No final solution but it works:
Take the SD card out of the phone so that terminates processes that access the SD card and the CPU work all the time.
Before this Solution, it drains my battery in 6 hours from 100% to 0%!
Now I lose per hour less than 1%!
No other choice than to wait for an update!
I upgraded this week and the apps seem to take ages to activate, sometimes getting 'failed to respond' error messages on apps such as facebook... I really wish I could go back to the previous version...not happy, but appear stuck with it till Sony sort out the problems..
I used to love using my Z1 but after I did this horrible update to what they call KITKAT I feel that I no longer enjoy using it anymore - Even the transition between the different screens (contacts, albums, etc) back to home screen became very jerky and not as before - my phone used to be ULTRASMOOTH, now simply it's not!!! Can someone tell me how to get rid of this rubbish software and to go back to the old version - 4.3 - I want my decent and elegant phone back!!!!
