He says that... moreBy 3rd party apps he meant whatsapp, instagram, snapchat, temple run, real racing 3, etc. (all of which have been downloaded from play store). He said that the data generated by these apps like messages, pics and all hog extra space in the internal memory and hamper phone performance. I annoyed as hell as i thought that if apps cause these problems, then why the heck am i using a smartphone? #sonysucks

He says that play store has 3rd party apps or what? However if he can't do the job u better look for an another service center( not a authorized one but a trusted one) I did it from unauthorized center.
mag c, 18 May 2014Downgrading not possible from pc companion. Take ur phn to a service center just a 20 minute job.I had gone to the authorized sony service center recently to get my phone downgraded to 4.1 as even my phone was laggy and used to get hanged and all......but they said that they are not allowed to downgrade the firmware of a phone and instead he blamed all the issues related to the 4.3 firmware on 3rd party apps, saying that they hog phone memory and make it slow and all. I am totally pissed off with sony as they have spoilt an otherwise great phone by the 4.3 update and poor service on top of that.

I was updated to .266 and after 2weeks the software was corrupted also .266 had very annoying screen flickering bug so I downgraded my sp to 4.1 but the update has some positive sides like butter smooth performance. Now I have the .201 notification but I'm afraid to go for it because some say lags and the flickering is still there.

Playing online via wifi or data also makes the phone heats up. My suggestion play in a cool place. Do you have an aircon or fan in your house. Thats gonna help and not only xsp heats up like that. Even flagship phones do.

Then go to settings Then go to security then verify apps. Uncheck that. Then go to google settings Then verify apps uncheck that. If that still force closing. Go to setting developer option then. Forced gpu to 2d rendering check that also the 4x msaa and the next one to that. Then reset your phone. No lags or anything bad just the camera.hehe. That i cant fix. But hd games will run smooth. Trust me .

nicknick, 17 May 2014OK thank you very muchnicknick,
please share your experience after you have updated your phone to .201. It should fix all your issues as per the positive reviews of .201 version firmware.
AB, 17 May 2014But in. 201 firmware, xsp heated a lot Any solution for thathi AB, now your post threatens me to upgrade my phone which I was going to do via sony service centre. does it heat too much to handle? it gets heated after how long time usage? and did this update all the issues like poor wifi range and constantly dropping issue, screen flickering, music player crashing while played horizontally, etc? please reply
in 4.1.2 version, I am facing poor wifi range and constant wifi signal drop issue. And while playing music in headfon, the music crashes and stops all of a sudden when i place my phone horizontally. But from reviews I have read that latest firmware version .201 solves all bugs leaving bravia engine behind (I am not a user of it anyway). I am planning to update my phone to 4.3 latest but not by own. I will take it to sony service centre.
